During his first run for the White House in 2008, Barack Obama continually would urge on his disciples and acolytes with the phrase “Yes we can!”
And whether you supported him or were against him back then, you have to admit it worked.
Aided by a media that had abandoned any sense of balance or fairness in favor of cheerleading and fawning over his every move, Obama used his pen and phone in an attempt to remake America into the European Union. In many ways he was successful.
For eight years his supporters laughed at those in flyover country, ridiculed the Tea Party, and generally labeled anyone who didn’t agree with them as unenlightened bigots and bumpkins who would easily be vanquished in 2016.
On election night these same liberals had their champagne on ice and were settling in on their couches to hear the words they had been longing to hear. Hillary Clinton would be the first female president.
Then within the space of a few hours the unthinkable happened.
On the way to the Clinton coronation, her regal carriage weighed down by the fat cats of the bipartisan establishment ran into a ditch and an old farm wagon full of the forgotten deplorable Americans driven by Donald Trump went right past her and on to the White House.
After the initial shock, President Trump’s opponents quickly regrouped and now they oppose anything he does. The shrillness of their rhetoric is so outrageous that if a conservative said it they would be visited by the Secret Service, arrested and hauled before a judge.
Hollywood stars who probably figured that under the Clinton Restoration they would once again be able to frolic in the Lincoln Bedroom at a Bill and Hillary Donor’s Sleepover have been especially nasty and unhinged.
D-Level celebrity Sarah Silverman has called for a coup by the military.
I guess she wants the military to dishonor their oath to the Constitution and get rid of Trump so she doesn’t have to soil her hands to do so. Revolution might require handling a firearm and she is against guns.
In 2008 Silverman and others in Hollywood were shouting “Yes we can!” for Obama. Now they are shouting “No you can’t!” at President Trump
Mr. Trump must not have received their memo about needing to get their permission to do what he is doing because he is doing exactly what he promised his supporters he would do!
And unlike other Republicans who cower every time they get pushback from Democrats and the media, President Trump is standing up to the liberal bullies like no Republican ever has and that includes Ronald Reagan.
So here is your Cowboy Wisdom for the Week.
“Watch it when sayin it can’t be done. Someone is liable to interrupt you by doin’ it.
President Trump’s establishment opponents keep sayin’ it can’t be done.
That a president is being denounced by the elitists and their stenographers in the press because he is actually doing what he said he would on the campaign trail tells you all you need to know about the folks Trump defeated from both parties.
Those that voted for him regardless of their reason are being heard for the first time in years.
If I could speak to him for a brief moment I would tell him ‘Keep paying attention to those folks and their needs’ and dance with those that brung you to the White House.
And one more thing.
Keep interruptin’ Mr. President.
