Trump at 6 Months Symposium Final Post On our Way

All this week at DaT­e­chGuy­blog while I’ve been in Chicago cov­er­ing the Catholic Mar­ket­ing Net­work and pro­mot­ing my book our writ­ers have been eval­u­at­ing the Pres­i­dency of Don­ald Trump at the Six Month Mark. This is because I made an optional request to my writ­ers to do so this week a while back.

One writer (Christo­pher Harper) sent me answers to the Ques­tions I posed rather than a post which I’ll leave here in full to show up what I had been look­ing for My ques­tions are in bold:

How you think he’s done vs how you expected him to do

Pres­i­dent Trump has made good on most of his promises, includ­ing immi­gra­tion and the U.S. Supreme Court, which was my main rea­son to vote for him. I hope he gets two or three more appointments.

Your biggest disappointment

The slow pace of judi­cial and exec­u­tive branch appointments

Your biggest cheer

Tak­ing on the media

What you’d like to see

A new tax policy

What you expect to see

A new tax pol­icy

What you think GOP prospects are after six months

It’s too soon to tell. The midterms are a long way off. But the Democ­rats are engaged in such self-​destruction, I see the prospects get­ting better.

Cur­rent Dem prospects after six months (pre­sum­ing that the cur­rent hys­te­ria hasn’t lead them to mass sui­cide by then)

The Trump admin­is­tra­tion may have made some errors, but the Dems are a disaster.

So what are my answers to my ques­tions? Where did I expect him to be?

I expected him to be far­ther along in terms of appoint­ments and poli­cies, a big part of this fail­ure is due to the 247 con­tin­ual oppo­si­tion where no hon­ey­moon period is allowed which I hadn’t (but per­haps should have) expected, part of it is due to his set­tling into the office and learn­ing the ropes, but a huge chunk of it in my opin­ion is the GOP majori­ties which nei­ther pre­pared for his vic­tory nor in many cases wanted the respon­si­bil­i­ties that such a vic­tory brought with them.

What’s my biggest dis­ap­point­ment? I’ve had sev­eral but you will be sur­prised to learn that my biggest was the fail­ure to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem on day 1. I under­stand the plan to offer the car­rot first but my thought was do it right away and lay down the marker to the Arabs say­ing: This is how things are.

As for my biggest cheer while I also love his fights with the media for me it was a spe­cific moment when asked about the so called “woman’s” march dur­ing an inter­view with Jonathan Karl he brought up the right to life march and the media’s fail­ure to cover it. This forced the MSM to cover the event prop­erly for the first time ever. I’ll never for­get it.

What would I like to see? I’d like to see the wall started and col­leges, cities and even states that pro­vide “sanc­tu­ary” sta­tus defunded along with planned par­ent­hood of course, as for what I expect I sus­pect it will even­tu­ally involve a deal that includes or effects the wall the same with Planned Par­ent­hood. It all will depend how afraid mem­bers of the GOP cau­cus are afraid of Pro-​Trump pri­mary opponent

As far as GOP prospects that will really depend on if they get behind the pro­gram, even at the start of the Tea Party Move­ment the GOP wasn’t trusted and they have done lit­tle or noth­ing to earn said trust. If we don’t see Oba­macare repealed and the wall at least started the effect on the base turnout will be painful. Some Pro-​Trump pri­mary oppo­nents might have a good effect but I’d not be sur­prised to see estab­lish­ment folks work against them in a Gen­eral. If GOP cow­ardice pre­vents the wall, saves Oba­macare and defends planned par­ent­hood. there will be only one thing that saves the GOP.…

…and that the fact that Cur­rent Demo­c­rat Prospects are even worse you still have the Bernie Hillary divide and nar­ra­tive of Sen­a­tor Har­ris as the great lib­eral sav­ior won’t mean squat in the midterms. In fact the only rea­son Demo­c­rat fail­ure, divi­sion and the party’s money gap won’t con­sign them to the ash heap of his­tory is the alter­na­tive choice to Demo­c­rat cra­zies are Repub­li­can cowards.

The smartest thing the GOP can do is get out there and define Sen­a­tor Har­ris. I’d link her to every out­ra­geous act the party does and to every unpop­u­lar thing they sup­port from ille­gal immi­gra­tion to cod­dling Iran and Islamic Ter­ror. This must be done NOW.

The good news is I trust Pres­i­dent Trump to be smart enough to adapt and will rec­og­nize these prob­lems and act. The bad news is I can’t say the same for the GOP caucus.

All this week at DaTechGuyblog while I’ve been in Chicago covering the Catholic Marketing Network and promoting my book our writers have been evaluating the Presidency of Donald Trump at the Six Month Mark. This is because I made an optional request to my writers to do so this week a while back.

President Trump has made good on most of his promises, including immigration and the U.S. Supreme Court, which was my main reason to vote for him. I hope he gets two or three more appointments.

What you think GOP prospects are after six months

It’s too soon to tell. The midterms are a long way off. But the Democrats are engaged in such self-destruction, I see the prospects getting better.

Current Dem prospects after six months (presuming that the current hysteria hasn’t lead them to mass suicide by then)

The Trump administration may have made some errors, but the Dems are a disaster.

So what are my answers to my questions? Where did I expect him to be?

I expected him to be farther along in terms of appointments and policies, a big part of this failure is due to the 24/7 continual opposition where no honeymoon period is allowed which I hadn’t (but perhaps should have) expected, part of it is due to his settling into the office and learning the ropes, but a huge chunk of it in my opinion is the GOP majorities which neither prepared for his victory nor in many cases wanted the responsibilities that such a victory brought with them.

What’s my biggest disappointment? I’ve had several but you will be surprised to learn that my biggest was the failure to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem on day 1. I understand the plan to offer the carrot first but my thought was do it right away and lay down the marker to the Arabs saying: This is how things are.

As for my biggest cheer while I also love his fights with the media for me it was a specific moment when asked about the so called “woman’s” march during an interview with Jonathan Karl he brought up the right to life march and the media’s failure to cover it. This forced the MSM to cover the event properly for the first time ever. I’ll never forget it.

What would I like to see? I’d like to see the wall started and colleges, cities and even states that provide “sanctuary” status defunded along with planned parenthood of course, as for what I expect I suspect it will eventually involve a deal that includes or effects the wall the same with Planned Parenthood. It all will depend how afraid members of the GOP caucus are afraid of Pro-Trump primary opponent

As far as GOP prospects that will really depend on if they get behind the program, even at the start of the Tea Party Movement the GOP wasn’t trusted and they have done little or nothing to earn said trust. If we don’t see Obamacare repealed and the wall at least started the effect on the base turnout will be painful. Some Pro-Trump primary opponents might have a good effect but I’d not be surprised to see establishment folks work against them in a General. If GOP cowardice prevents the wall, saves Obamacare and defends planned parenthood. there will be only one thing that saves the GOP….

…and that the fact that Current Democrat Prospects are even worse you still have the Bernie Hillary divide and narrative of Senator Harris as the great liberal savior won’t mean squat in the midterms. In fact the only reason Democrat failure, division and the party’s money gap won’t consign them to the ash heap of history is the alternative choice to Democrat crazies are Republican cowards.

The smartest thing the GOP can do is get out there and define Senator Harris. I’d link her to every outrageous act the party does and to every unpopular thing they support from illegal immigration to coddling Iran and Islamic Terror. This must be done NOW.

The good news is I trust President Trump to be smart enough to adapt and will recognize these problems and act.  The bad news is I can’t say the same for the GOP caucus.
