The previous national legislatures (House and Senate) faced rigid partisanship. Did we learn anything from that, or will it persist as Democrats (now in the minority) simply do what they criticized Republicans for doing when their roles were reversed? Trump comes across as a "get things done" guy. Will he be slow in taking advantage of the same "window of opportunity" President Obama saw vanish in Obama's first two years in office, or will he use his first 100 days in office to get things done? By 100+ days the Tidal Basin cherry trees will be in blossom and America could blossom, too.

I just had fun writing a satirical bit about what happens after the inauguration has been done. The serious bit then is what comes next.
Any violent protests Friday will just prove what we have been saying all along.
You have the numbers on the statement that Trump created more jobs since November than Obama did in 8 years? No? I didn't think so. BTW, it seems you are looking forward to a vicious crackdown with virulent glee. Sad.
In my tiny little brain I was thinking about that ptosis. It seems like there is an automatic uptick. That is some serious notion going on around outside the beltway. I check historical market with the new -- something is going on and so far???
I'm hoping Trump will give OT to 4 million workers vs the 1K Carrier jobs 'saved' - (not!) by the Trumpeteer. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-trump-could...
Just heard that the IMF is considering calling this shift very positive. But we do not want to raise the dollar up right now as it makes our stuff cost too much abroad. Makes me think he may need to temper and step by step.
And now we read that $2,500 is being offered for singing up as Protesters! "Freedom of assembly" just became paid assemblies (ugh!) That smacks of those paid to be "active" protesters at the Trump rallies. Count all the hires as jobs Trump creates?
Another good one, but to answer the question, Trump has been working and accomplishing since the election. If the Trump resistance dn help Trump then they will just be windshield art.
