Some conservatives are so unyielding in their hatred of President Trump that they fail to recognize that they are living under the most conservative and decisive president since Ronald Reagan.
Take a look at a few actual headlines, just from today:
- Trump decertifies Iran nuclear deal, slaps sanctions on IRGC in broadside at ‘radical regime’
- Trump to issue stop-payment order on health care subsidies
- Trump praises Judeo-Christian values
- US, Israel to exit UNESCO over its alleged anti-Israel bias
This is a conservative wish list that none of the other more “normal” candidates in the 2016 primaries would have dared attempt.
Consider what you are seeing above. He’s starting to jettison the hated Obama Iran nuclear deal; having failed to get Congress to pass Obamacare repeal, he’s undermining the law in an attempt to force new legislation next year; he’s praising the values on which this country was founded; and he finally just did something Republicans have been talking about for years – he withdrew the United States from the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel UNESCO.
The problem with more passive, more even-keeled politicians is they get used to the status quo, even if it features things they opposed, like Obamacare or the agreement with Iran. They end up not wanting to rock the boat.
Trump is dynamic. If he sees a boat in still water, he’s going to make some waves. That’s why the American people put him in office, and not Marco Rubio. Can you imagine Marco taking all or even a couple of these actions, let alone in one day?
But of course, all Trump will get for it from the #NeverTrump conservative writers is some more psychoanalysis and suggestions that he be removed from office before he starts World War III and, if that doesn’t kill enough people, World War IV.
