We’ve all heard it. The President is: Insane, Incompetent, Racist, Sexist, Xenophobic and the list goes on and on.
Let’s address insane for the purposes of this post. What is the old cliche definition? “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results!”
In fact, President Trump is acting the opposite of insane. He knows the House and Senate want to kick this “border security” can down the road again.
It started long ago and most notoriously with President Reagan. He was promised border security for granting amnesty to around 3 million illegal aliens. See the Immigration Reform Act of 1986.
We not only didn’t get border security but we did get millions of new illegal immigrants! Somewhere between 16 million and 29 million, it’s anyone’s guess.
President Trump was promised by Congressional Leadership that if he signed the 1.3 Trillion Dollar Omnibus Bill he would get the money for the wall and border security before the new Congress took over. He vowed to never do that again.
If he was insane he would take Congress at their word. Nope, he’s not and should not do that again. Correct me if I’m wrong but he can simply not sign anything and tell Congress they have to override him with a Two-Thirds majority!
If Democrats are seriously willing to deal then they can do it with the Republican-held Senate and Democrat-held House.
Oh, I almost forgot. Walls don’t work. That’s why the military uses them so successfully around the world!
