EXCERPT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ………………………………


TRUMP.45! COCKED & LOCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


……..In short, Donald Trump’s style and comportment as president hasn’t been all that different from what he showed us as a candidate.

And yet none of the predicted calamities have happened. The economy is roaring. Domestic energy production is soaring. Taxes have been cut. Regulations have been slashed. Presidential abuses of power have been reversed, which is not the sort of thing you normally expect from an authoritarian strongman.

Kim Jong Un is indeed acting provocative with his nuclear missile tests, but he was doing that all along, and now the Trump Administration is bringing together a coalition of nations in the hope of getting him under control. We’re also working with our allies to finish off ISIS, stand up against Iranian agression and counter Russia’s efforts to dominate global energy markets.

In other words, even with a president who does not act like what we expect in a president, things seems pretty stable and in many ways pretty darn good.

I do see a threat here, but it’s not to the country. It’s to the political elites who tried to sell us this idea of how presidents have to act and think.

There is nothing in the Constitution that says a president has to behave in a certain way, or conduct himself with a certain style. There are norms we’ve gotten used to over the years, but there’s nothing that says a president can’t be successful while flouting those norms. It’s just that most presidents find it wisest to stick to the norms in order to avoid upsetting the proverbial apple cart.

What Donald Trump is doing is taking the whole idea of “presidential” behavior and laying it to waste. He’s rejecting every conventional parameter of how presidents can speak and function . . . and the country is doing just fine. He certainly attracts his share of criticism for it, but he doesn’t seem to care and the business of America proceeds apace just the same.

What will result from this? Probably that political elites will no longer be able to lecture the public about certain personality types being the only ones allowed to be president, for fear of dire consequences if the public dare ignore their instructions. Just about every newspaper editorial page warned the public that electing Donald Trump would be dangerous because he seemed different, unstable and unlike what we’re all used to. The public filed that advice in the circular file and elected him anyway.

Maybe it was never necessary to have a president who acts “presidential.” Maybe there is no such thing. Maybe we were just operating according to a template that had outlived its usefulness and needed to be shredded.

And maybe now we can elevate substance over style for a change, which would be a very good thing for a country that could use some substance in the face of serious problems.
