Th First 1461 Days
Blu is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, May 1, 2017. Our dear friend, Butterfly Blu, is at the table this morning. She has some thoughts about the much talked about 100 days in office milestone. Let's chow down on Blu's breakfast of cinnamon French toast and talk about the 100 day nonsense that is sweeping the land. We hope to see you soon.
The Final Countdownn
Thank you all for joining POP and me this morning. I am completely baffled by all this talk about President Trump's first 100 days in office. Judging by all the chatter, it seems that the media and some of the electorate believe he should have achieved all of his goals during this brief time period. I don't believe that other presidents were held to this idiotic standard, but perhaps I am wrong. The interesting part about all of this is that if we were to compare President Trump with former presidents, he has done a truly amazing job. A brief look at his accomplishments tell the true story. Since his push for border security, illegal crossings have plunged. Imagine how things will be when he actually builds the wall? Manufacturers have decided to expand business right here in America, because they are confidant that this president will create a healthy and friendly business environment. The DOW is through the roof, proving once again that Americans have confidence that President Trump can make the country great again. Our reputation abroad got a huge shot in the arm after 8 horrible years under President Obama. Business bending regulations have been rolled back and prosperity is in the air. We have an outstanding new Supreme Court judge, Justice Gorsuch, an accomplishment we will enjoy for a very, very long time. President Trump has done all of this in the midst of hostile Democrats who seem to have more invested in seeing him fail than in seeing our nation succeed. The same may be true of some of President Trump's fellow Republicans. Not all of them are going with the flow, and if they continue to muck up progress, there will be hell to pay.
Getting it Done
President Trump knows how to get things done. He works day and night and is tireless in his outreach to Americans from all parts of the country. He is the perfect role model for those who aspire to succeed. The Democrats appear to have decided that whatever Trump wants is bad for America. They really mean it is bad for their party, but they are hell bent on convincing Americans that their hearts and minds are in the right place. Their pathetic message is not resonating with thinking Americans, and it is beginning to lose thunder among fellow Democrats. The loud mouths in Washington are counting on the stupidity of their followers to keep them afloat. Instead, the party is floundering, and given more time, the party of NO will fade away into obscurity. I, for one, would love to see that happen. It would be great to see a party emerge that is realistic about our goals, smart about our alliances and interested in fulfilling what is best for all Americans. What's happening now is simply not sustainable. The old-timers in the party will never loosen their grip until old age or the will of the electorate calls it a day. In the meantime, President Trump and those who elected him will have to deal with all this painful noise emerging from the left. The only hope we have, short of an epiphany on the part of the Democrats, is for the Republicans to roll up their sleeves and get to work supporting this president.
End This Tug of War
Trump's first 100 days reveal a man determined to keep his promise to America. To scrutinize his every move is ridiculous and devisive. What we need now is to see Congress get to work. We don't need filibusters and we don't need insane investigations into Russians influencing our elections. America has a long history of interfering in the elections of other nations. We need to move on. We need to get Americans back to work. We need to help our veterans once and for all. We need to rid the world of ISIS. We need to secure our borders. We need to straighten out our health care and we need to lower taxes across the board. It doesn't have to be this hard. Congress has to roll up their sleeves and solve the pressing problems hurting Americans. They have to remember that they work for those who put them in office. They have to remember that those who elected them can turn their backs on them and put someone in place who understands their role. It isn't the first 100 days that matter. Let's shoot for the first 1461 days, and them let's do it again!
Blue skies winking at me
Hinting that good things
Can come to be......
