What would have happened if he lost and Hillary won? Everything would have been just like the last eight years under Obama. Gridlock. The day after Obama won the election, minority leader pipsqueak Eric Cantor promised republicans would fight everything Obama tried to pass. They sure lived up to that promise. More important than improving the lives of the people that elected them, Republicans chose to make Obama a failure. Judging by Obama’s astronomical approval ratings, they were the ones to fail.
If Hillary would have won, Republicans would have spent every single minute disparaging her and pumping air into those scandals that never quite got off the ground. Benghazi for example, was regurgitated through SEVEN different republican investigations. Yet each one found Hillary committed no wrongdoing. Meanwhile, millions of dollars was wasted. Isn’t it odd that all of those investigations stopped as soon as Trump was elected? As if all of those despicable allegations against her didn’t matter after she lost.
Supporters of a president can only hope that his tenure is a success. A successful presidency has become a striking characteristic defining democrats and republicans. Look at the past thirty years. We’ve had two republican and two democratic presidents. According to Washington Post-ABC News polls, approval ratings would classify Bill Clinton and Obama as successful presidents whereas Bush and Junior were terrible, Washington Post article.
Republican voters took a chance with Trump. They rolled the dice….and lost. The democrats were the ones to win with Trump’s victory.
Trump’s presidency is already tarnished with scandal and treasonous allegations. What delicious delights will we encounter the remaining four years? One thing we can all be sure of, is that republicans will not be happy when Trump leaves office.
During the election, the republican party was dying. Now, the party is dead.
