If there’s one thing that has come through loud and clear so far in the GOP race for the 2016 nomination, it’s the absurd slogan of Donald Trump which he continually repeats and has plastered on cheap, made in China baseball caps he often wears so the wind won’t blow the dead hamster off his head. Come on, you know it. We all know it and hate it like poison:
“Make America Great Again.”
Excuse me for thinking so, but I’m kinda of the opinion that America is already great. But Trump’s slogan attempts (poorly, I might add) to harken back to the era of Ronald Regan (as if there was anything good about Reagan other than his ability to lie with a straight face) while also taking a cheap shot at President Obama.
And speaking of President Obama, he was talking to reporters today at the White House and took time to remind them:
“That is progress. Six straight years of job creation…The numbers, the facts, don’t lie.”
No, sir, Mr. President, they sure don’t. And if George W. Bush had been able to boast of a record like that (he didn’t even come close and almost destroyed the economy), Republicans would have been ready to name every airport in the country after him and engrave his image on Mount Rushmore.
President Obama also noted:
“I think it’s useful, given that there seems to be an alternative reality out there, from some of the political folks, that America’s down in the dumps. It’s not. America is pretty darn great right now, and making strides right now.”
Damn right! We don’t need to be great again, because we already are, Donald!
Then the President finished off the Trumpster Fire and the entire GOP with this perfectly placed slap:
“The longer-term trends were further cemented in this month’s job numbers…There’s a vigorous political debate going on in the country. The debate in the general election will be focused on whether or not we build on the progress that we’ve made over the last seven years … or are we going to turn back to the policies that actually led to the ‘Great Recession’”
Game, set, and match, Obama. Hey, Donald, you got anything other than those tiny fingers of yours that tell us all we need to know about why you haven’t been able to satisfy your previous two wives? Didn’t think so.
