They Want to Make Him Pay

by baldilocks

Pres­i­dent Trump made an offer which the Democ­rats rejected before the speech was even given.

Who could have seen that com­ing? Yes, that’s sarcasm.

If the Democ­rats had done any­thing other than that, they would have to give up their great­est dream:

Since Trump’s elec­tion, the dream unit­ing all Democ­rats is to impeach the pres­i­dent. Hav­ing won the House and with a mere major­ity nec­es­sary to ini­ti­ate Arti­cles of Impeach­ment, that dream will finally come true – never mind that chances of con­vic­tion in the Sen­ate are near nil, with 67 votes required to sus­tain and Repub­li­cans still in the major­ity. They will impeach because, as with the scor­pion, it’s their nature.

It doesn’t mat­ter that after more than two years of inves­ti­ga­tion, Pres­i­dent Trump has not been found to have com­mit­ted any crime. Impeach­ment is not a crim­i­nal pro­ceed­ing; it is a polit­i­cal pro­ceed­ing, and in the “People’s House,” the major­ity decides what con­sti­tutes “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” (…)

It is said that Spe­cial Coun­sel Robert Mueller, whose improper appoint­ment also started an inves­ti­ga­tion in search of a crime, will soon release his report and that it will be less than rev­e­la­tory. This will put the onus on con­gres­sional Democ­rats to rid the nation of the med­dle­some orange tweeter.

It’s cer­tain that the pres­i­dent also knew before­hand that his offer would be rejected. He and mil­lions of other Amer­i­cans know that any inch given by the Democ­rats will result in Pres­i­dent Trump tak­ing a mile, pretty much with­out even try­ing too hard – as we saw in the last few days in the case of the duel­ing letters.

Why is this so? Because it will take some­thing dras­tic to make the Democ­rats stop try­ing to make Don­ald Trump pay for beat­ing Hillary Clin­ton to the Oval Office.

Per­son­ally, I don’t think impeach­ment will even ruf­fle the president’s famous hair. He seems to thrive on adversity.

What I do think is that, if the Democ­rats fail –- which is likely, given the com­po­si­tion of the sen­ate –- they will try some­thing even more out­ra­geous … and dan­ger­ous. And they couldn’t care less about the chaos that would be unleashed on this country.

That’s what hap­pens when a party believes it always deserves to get what it wants.

President Trump made an offer which the Democrats rejected before the speech was even given.

Who could have seen that coming? Yes, that’s sarcasm.

If the Democrats had done anything other than that, they would have to give up their greatest dream:

Since Trump’s election, the dream uniting all Democrats is to impeach the president. Having won the House and with a mere majority necessary to initiate Articles of Impeachment, that dream will finally come true – never mind that chances of conviction in the Senate are near nil, with 67 votes required to sustain and Republicans still in the majority. They will impeach because, as with the scorpion, it’s their nature.

It doesn’t matter that after more than two years of investigation, President Trump has not been found to have committed any crime. Impeachment is not a criminal proceeding; it is a political proceeding, and in the “People’s House,” the majority decides what constitutes “High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” (…)

It is said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose improper appointment also started an investigation in search of a crime, will soon release his report and that it will be less than revelatory. This will put the onus on congressional Democrats to rid the nation of the meddlesome orange tweeter.

It’s certain that the president also knew beforehand that his offer would be rejected. He and millions of other Americans know that any inch given by the Democrats will result in President Trump taking a mile, pretty much without even trying too hard – as we saw in the last few days in the case of the dueling letters.

Why is this so? Because it will take something drastic to make the Democrats stop trying to make Donald Trump pay for beating Hillary Clinton to the Oval Office.

Personally, I don’t think impeachment will even ruffle the president’s famous hair. He seems to thrive on adversity.

What I do think is that, if the Democrats fail –- which is likely, given the composition of the senate –- they will try something even more outrageous … and dangerous. And they couldn’t care less about the chaos that would be unleashed on this country.

That’s what happens when a party believes it always deserves to get what it wants.
