I AM peronally THRILLED the "O error is OVER - Daniel Greenfield at Sultan knish says it best:
""Presidents were elected by Saturday Night Live skits. John Oliver, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee were our journalists. Safe spaces were everywhere and you better watch your microaggressions, buddy. No more coal would be mined. No more anything would be made. The end of men was here. The end of the dead white men of the literary canon. The end of white people. The end of binary gender and marriage. The end of reason. The end of art. The end of 2 + 2 equaling 4. This was Common Core time. It was time to pardon an endless line of drug dealers. To kill cops and praise criminals. To be forced to buy worthless health insurance for wealth redistribution to those who voted their way to wealth.
This was Obama's America. And there was no going back. We were rushing through endless goal posts of social transformation. The military fell. Then the police. Now it looks as quaint as anything from the 50s, the 70s or the 80s. A brief moment of foolishness that already appears odd and awkward. And then one day nostalgic. It wasn't the future. It's already the past. It's history.
Scalia died. Hillary Clinton was bound to win. And she would define the Supreme Court. Downticket races would give her a friendly Senate. And then perhaps the House.
But there is no right side of history. There is only the side we choose.
The Obama era was permanent. It was history. Now it is history." - and -
"The Obama era ends not with a bang, but with a whimper. With a national consensus that maybe he didn't really matter so much after all. And those to whom he mattered the most were his enemies determined to undo everything he did.
Obama once thought that he belonged to the ages. Now he belongs in the rubbish bin."
AMEN to that Mr. Greenfield!!
Also from Marion Dreyfus at AT:"Yes!" what does Trump's victory mean?
"The jollitude of watching so many shake their heads repeatedly in disbelief.
The welcoming in of smart, thoughtful, decent cabinet members and the ouster of Islamist-flecked, hateful incompetents schooled in nothing but prog nonsense repeatedly proven failures for 100 years, nasty sorts seeking only to weaken the country with idiocies and schemes resulting in a Dead Sea GDP and a 1929 despair among small entrepreneurs and regular folk.
The delight of having Melania as FLOTUS over the fistface of Mooch and her whiny throat-catchy self-righteousness.
The return of fiscal sanity and a cessation of the First Family feeding from the American taxpayer trough, M/M Obuma and hangers-on spending our millions on unwarranted vacays, splurges, private jets, and expensive stayovers to which they are not entitled.
The pure joy of not having another horrific four years like the past eight."
Is "jollitude" even a word? Never heard it before, but today I am definitely filled with it.
WORD OF THE DAY after a President Trump VICTORY = JOLLITUDE!
