Archive for the ‘Promises Made Promises Kept’ Category

Back in the late 1970s, it was fashionable for supposed intellectuals to talk about how the presidency was just too big for one man. The political science professoriate talked about the need for a co-presidency. That professoriate even talked about changing the Constitution so that the president would serve a single 6-year term. That was during Jimmy Carter’s single 4-year term in office.

That fashionable talk disappeared the minute President Reagan took over and got the economy hitting on all cylinders. In October, 1983, the US economy created 1,100,000 jobs. I’ve got to think that’s the single-month record and that it’ll never be eclipsed. It wasn’t that the presidency was too big for one man. It’s that it was too big for that man, aka Jimmy Carter.

During his final months in office, President Obama ridiculed then-candidate Trump, saying that you’d need a magic wand to bring back manufacturing jobs during this townhall:

Twitchy has noticed Republicans, especially Donald Trump Jr., ridiculing President Obama and his “magic wand” statement:


Just like with Reagan replacing Carter, we’re seeing the same robust economic growth increase from the turnover from Obama to President Trump. The comparison is striking. President Reagan cut taxes dramatically, especially capital gains, while pursuing deregulation, especially in the energy sector. President Trump is following the same path to success, virtually to a T.

At this week’s Democrat presidential debates, Democrat presidential candidates criticized President Obama for not being sufficiently socialist enough. By the time Democrats pick their nominee, which might not be determined until their convention, President Trump will join in the criticism of President Obama. It’s just that President Trump will criticize President Obama for not being sufficiently capitalist enough.

It’s entirely possible that President Trump will win a decisive victory, though I can’t predict him winning the 525 electoral votes that President Reagan achieved in 1984. Talk about deja vu all over again.

This op-ed should be trumpeted across the nation from sunrise to sunset from now until Election Day. Democrat presidential candidates at this week’s debates tried making the Trump economy sound like Soupline America. Each Democrat presidential candidate insisted that President Trump’s economy only benefited the rich while giving the working class the cold shoulder.

What’s needed is a dose of reality. Something like this:

Members of the campaign’s Women For Trump coalition participated in an Economic Empowerment round table this week in downtown Detroit. Over a dozen women business owners like myself participated in the discussion focused on how the president’s policies have not only empowered but advanced women in today’s modern economy.

As a result of historic tax cuts and deregulation, more than 5.5 million jobs have been created. In my own business, I have experienced growth and success thanks to deregulation and tax cuts. Just as important, my employees have felt the economic growth too.

Then there’s this:

The growth and success of my enterprise is one of many, thanks to Trump’s policies. Americans across the country, and from all walks of life, are experiencing this strong economic headwind. A boom in hiring and increased wages has created a unique problem in today’s labor force — we need MORE workers! Now, businesses of all sizes are competing for American workers by reinvesting in their employees, boosting benefits and offering competitive salaries.

When businesses compete for workers, workers win. That’s an indisputable fact.

Mark Penn’s op-ed highlights just how the Democrats’ presidential candidates from the second night’s debate view President Trump’s America:

While these same candidates earlier this week expressed outrage at President Trump for tweeting that Baltimore was a rat-infested mess, they all seemed to portray our entire country as in far worse shape than that Maryland oasis. America, it seems, is not the land of full employment, rising wages and decreased poverty. It’s not a country in which 90 percent have health insurance, almost everyone has a smartphone, and 64 percent own their home. It’s at heart a racist, misogynistic country dominated by fat cats and big corporations sucking the life out of us all. According to these candidates it’s a dark, dark place and, unless we usher them into office and save it through these programs and policies that start at a mere $30 trillion, America will continue to be a lost country.

It’s fantastic that women like Amy Azzo are speaking out about how President Trump’s policies are working. That being said, just letting these Democrats spew their idiotic crap will be enough, in my opinion, to deliver a major victory to President Trump and House and Senate Republicans.

Let’s be clear about this. We’ll still have to work hard. We’ll still need to man the phone banks, drop lit and register new voters. That’s still essential. That being said, the things that the Democrats’ presidential candidates have said are the things that lunatics have said. The questions that I have at this point are simple. How many seats will Republicans win in the House? To me, the question of whether Ms. Pelosi returns as Speaker has been determined. She’ll hold the Speaker’s Gavel one time in 2021 and that’s when she hands it to Speaker McCarthy. Another question I have is whether Republicans will have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate? I’m thinking they won’t but that they might have as many as 57-58 Republicans in the Upper Chamber.

Check back later for more on the deterioration of today’s Democratic Party.

Based on this article, it’s pretty clear that the GOP is the only growth stock in American politics. I don’t know if it’s a bull market yet or not but it’s got the best yields thus far.

During the 2016 election campaign, President Trump inspired millions of Americans with the simple promise that he would “Make America Great Again” through “America First” policies. The media wrote that message off as a meaningless campaign slogan, but millions of Americans across this country knew better.

Since then, both the economy and the Republican Party have been flourishing, fueled by a president who is delivering on his promises for all Americans. Thanks to Donald Trump’s leadership, the Republican Party is now synonymous with freedom, economic prosperity and security.

The data shows that this movement is growing. President Trump’s rallies consistently draw well over 30,000 attendees, whether they take place in a remote airport hangar or a major sports arena. Just last month, his 2020 campaign kickoff rally in Orlando received more than 120,000 RSVPs for a venue that could accommodate 20,000. The same routine plays out at every rally: people start lining up days in advance to make sure they can get a seat, because they know that thousands of people will end up watching the president’s speech on jumbotrons from the parking lot once attendance reaches capacity. We’ve never seen the same level of enthusiasm or support for Democrats, especially for any of their 2020 presidential candidates.

Who knew that middle class Americans preferred prosperity over stagnation and microscopic unemployment rates over respectable unemployment rates? Who knew that blue collar workers would appreciate a candidate who kept their promises?

Actually, it was entirely predictable. In fact, I’ve been writing on LFR about the powerful effect keeping political promises would have for years. Democrats haven’t kept their promises. (See the ‘productivity’ of the Problem Solvers Caucus.) Rather than fixing things that are important to people, Democrats have engaged in a fishing expedition looking for that one piece of proof that will impeach President Trump.

This information should frighten Democrats:

The data also proves that this movement includes all Americans. Earlier this year, President Trump held a rally in El Paso, Texas at which over a quarter of those who registered had not voted in more than eight years and 27% were Millennials or younger. In Orlando, one-third of the registrants were not regular voters, and over 15% were 32 years of age or younger. In El Paso, over 70% of the registrants were Latino and 35% of them were registered Democrats. The president’s “America First” message clearly has broad appeal for Americans of every demographic.

Pandering doesn’t work. Period. Keeping important promises works like a charm. The proof is in the pudding:

One of those voters is a lifelong Democrat in Ohio. Scott Ford recently made a splash on social media when he announced that he will be attending the president’s next rally in Cincinnati on Thursday. Scott endured what he described as “complete torture” and “hate” from liberals over his defection, but he’ll be welcomed into the Trump movement with open arms.

Scott is far from the only Democrat to walk away. Americans experience the benefits of President Trump’s leadership every day in the form of the booming economy his policies created. Meanwhile, endless investigations and a “Squad” of radical Democrats are synonymous with the Democratic agenda. Instead of resistance, wouldn’t it be nice if the Democrats worked with Republicans to end the crisis at our southern border, pass the USMCA and rebuild America’s infrastructure?

Let’s crush the Resist Movement. Let’s get back to working with each other rather than constantly fighting.
