Eight years ago Barack Obama was elected President. Obviously the Right was unhappy. There were warnings that if he got into office, there would never be another election. Others said the country would collapse. Meanwhile the Left was in a state of euphoria. Like Moses parting the Red Sea, Obama was going to lead them to the Promised Land. He even got a Nobel Prize just because he was Barack Obama.
To quote the late, great Yogi Berra, it’s déjà vu all over again. The Right is fantasizing about all their dream legislation passing in the first 100 days. The Left talked about him being like a member of KKK or even another Hitler. Now the propagandists believe their propaganda. There are fears he will start rounding up “undesirables”. The one difference is that last time people weren’t rioting in the streets.
I will admit that I have serious misgivings about Trump. Time will tell what happens. In the meantime, let’s all relax a bit. I don’t know what to expect but imagine it will be worse that his supporters hope and better than his detractors fear.
