“But I say, how do you impeach somebody that’s doing a great job, that hasn’t done anything wrong? Our economy is good. How do you do it? How do you do it?”—-(Trump in Montana)
I’m actually surprised that our orange dude is now realizing that an impeachment may be on the ‘horizon’. And, someone should inform him that it’s actually a pretty simple process.... But, the state of the economy, low unemployment, the stock market, etc. are major points in all of Trump’s rallies in support of Republican candidates. And these things ‘resonate’ not only with his solid ‘30 plus%’ base! I’m still waiting for a strong message from any Democrat to convince the voter to vote ‘blue’! Continued ‘pointing fingers’ at Trump and his erratic behavior is (in my opinion) not enough! Even the Woodward book and the NY Times op ed most likely won’t change anything: the deplorables don’t read those sources (pro’lly don’t read, period!). The previous admonitions by Trump that anything NOT coming from the White House is ‘fake news’ has left its ‘mark’ on many, and I can see and hear that in the lower half of my state, and especially from folks across the ‘River’. So, please stop talking about a ‘Blue Wave’, or even a ‘Blue Tsunami’!! I don’t see any signs of that around here....at least not yet!
Well the wage rise is a whopping 10¢ per hour so far. Let's see if it turns into $$. Otherwise it's "a blip on the radar screen".
Yes the economy is much better, but it took 8 years of Obama to turn it around... it didn't grow since Jan 21 2017 !! it started in 2009 !! And BO had 4 quarters that were also >4% ... in fact higher than Trumps only one so far at 4.1% growth... HOW sustainable is Trump's, esp. with tariffs in place.
Same with unemployment... When BO took office it was > 10.5%. When he left it was around 4.5%... net change = 6% !! Jan 21 2017 it's 4.5% now it's 3.9%... net change = 0.6% !!
So BOs was 10 X Trumps !! Those are undeniable FACTS !
SO I think the Dems have a lot to run on...
Also if they do not CHECK the GOP in Nov., many people's Healthcare is going away... the GOP will repeal Obamacare as sure as the sun shines !! 10-20 million people LOSE healthcare and for many more, the premiums rise to point they can't afford !! BAM ! they're screwed !
And another reason why I don’t see a ‘Blue Wave’ in November: Middle-class income rose to a record level in 2017 and the national poverty rate fell as the strong economy lifted the fortunes of more Americans, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Wednesday. The median U.S. household earned $61,372 last year, meaning half of the families in the country brought in more income than this and half earned less.“—
Hard to tell Mike... inflation is also UP... and we'll see how the tariffs turn out. If that sends the prices of many goods UP, so much for the increase in pay... they won't feel it.
I still think it's too early bc things change so quickly with the Orange Wave = Trumpinator ! Maddening !! Like trying to predict the weather on Election Day.... WTF knows... could be a blizzard ! . . could be 80 degrees !
