In the photograph below Democrat House Leaders Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Steny Hoyer (D-MD) are on the floor of the US House Chamber while President Trump gave his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night. Thanks to California Republican National Committeeman Shawn Steel[zone] for the photo post on Facebook. Hilarious and sad at the same time.
The Democrats act like it is the end of the world. Sure, we conservatives felt similarly when Obama won, but we didn't walk around with doom and gloom and thoughts of hari-kari dancing around in our heads. We were optimistic that we would get things turned around, and we peaceably organized into grassroots movements to make it happen. The media (back then) said the Republican Party was over, that the country had finally turned the left-hand corner to socialism forever. The first black president was the messiah, practically walking on water, and bringing tears to their eyes. They can't believe it is over. The presidency of Barack Obama has ended, and his popularity (you have to understand, the Democrats believe their own lies because in their twisted bubble of existence all they know is the information they receive from the liberal media which is based on material they manipulated in the first place, and then the media manipulated it some more . . . and they somehow then believe all of the manipulated data and information religiously as if it is the unabashed truth). The Democrats especially can't believe that an outsider won the White House, and that the GOP somehow hung on to both Houses of Congress.
I wonder how many Democrats should be on a serious suicide watch protocol?
Personally, I have trouble understanding how anyone can believe that the individual does not deserve to govern his or her own life, and that somehow nothing is accomplished if the big central government isn't doing it. They push government dependence instead of self-reliance and personal responsibility. They push government control and mandate by force Americans that people do what the politicians demand. And, somehow, they believe that is a good thing.
And if they aren't in control, it's like a house of cards falling around them. For Pelosi, it's a real nail-biter of a moment. I wonder if her alcohol intake has increased?
