Aftermath.

February 6, 2019

Crumbs and dog poop, declared the ever classy Van Jones. That pretty much sums up the TDS sufferers reaction to the State of the Union address.

Others didn’t see it quite that way.  CBS conducted an instant poll of 1472 people who watched the SOTU, 54% of whom identified as Democrats or independents. 72% or 1155, liked the hell out of it.

Anyway, it’s over and nothing seems to have really changed in Washington.

House Majority Whip Clyburn (D-SC) is still prattling on about a 30-foot high concrete wall, although the President gave up on that after he went to San Diego, viewed the prototypes and actually talked to the Border Patrol. That was almost a year ago.

Makes you wonder if the gentleman from South Carolina has been in the men’s room for a year, or perhaps he needs hearing assistance.

Whatever. As of last night nothing really changed, other than Speaker Pelosi may have a cramp in the lip she kept curling.

Outside of the DC urinal however, this was a pretty damn well-received address to the nation. And, if you actually listened, it laid out a lot of things that Congress should support as a group, i.e. prescription prices, infrastructure etc.

Where POTUS goes from here will depend largely on what happens with the “bipartisan” committee.

Today that bunch was supposed to hear from the border agents. Perhaps they will be as receptive to the real border experts as the President was, maybe not.

Stay tuned.
