Via Twitter, a list of Trump accomplishments.
Let me channel the dead-enders: It’s not like he was doing the LBJ routine in the cloakroom, twisting arms. It’s not like he was calling in Congresspeople to request a bill increasing funding for AIDS and Historically Black colleges. He signed what was put before him. A Rubio administration would have done the same.
Yeah, but … first you have to have a Rubio administration.
Yes, but if we’d had a Rubio administration, we would have all those good things, without the loss of international standing and the rise of Bad Vibes among demographics conservatives need to court.
Yes. But. International-standing-wise, here is your sack of sand and a hammer; enjoy your workout. As for the unpopularity amongst the youth and suburban women who were once well-disposed to the GOP but now give socialism a fresh look because they don’t like Trump’s character — the Youth would have always peeled off to the Left because that’s what you do when the slack sails of inexperience fill with the gusts of egalitarian blather. As for the suburban women, that’s a different post.
Point is, the media is transfixed by who Trump is, but what matters is the end result of his occupancy of the office. By the metrics of the left — bills passed, money spent — he ought to be seen as a best-case GOP president. If they could conceive of such a thing.
