I could go so many directions with this, but for now, I just have to ask. Are the Democrats really that far out of touch, and do they not know that things have a tendency to backfire?
I am referring to the legislation introduced by Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR). This bill, which was introduced during Congress’ April recess, empowers former presidents and former vice presidents, along with the currently sitting vice president, to be able to determine the suitability of the sitting president to hold office.
First off, this is so short-sighted. Currently, there are five living presidents. Three are Democrats, two are Republicans. So apparently, their Trump Derangement Syndrome is telling them that they can use this happy state of affairs to eliminate Trump, and that it will continue. However, just like the “nuclear option,” this too will come back to bite them in the ass. They will scream like gelded pigs the first time their ill-considered legislation is used against them, just like the rhetoric that the Democrats used after the nuclear option was used to confirm Justice Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
However, the most important question to my mind, is that We the People elected him through the due process that has been in place for 230 years. It is not your role to oppose the will of the People and “decide” for us that the President is not meeting your expectations and should be removed from office.
President Trump is doing nothing more than fulfilling the promises he made when running for the office. That it is undoing the ultra-radical, America-defeating “legacy” of his predecessor is popular with the folks who voted him in. Leave him alone and let him get on with his job. Remember, we didn’t propose such nonsensical legislation when his predecessor was in office, even though we didn’t agree with his agenda.
