Holy Crap

It just hit me.

How did this guy get to be president?

He figured out that nobody was talking about what was important to the 50% + 1 of the electorate.

Wilson said...

What Borepatch said – Trump was talking about the problems no other politician, including every other republican, wanted to talk about.

The way I see it, he's about the fourth worst candidate who could be standing on that dais taking the oath this morning. The three who would have been worse than him are Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein, and Hilary Clinton.

'Cause he was the least bad choice.

He, at least, says the things that at least half plus one of us want to hear....America first, border security, trade equivalency....Jobs for US citizens.

And fix obamacare.

I believe he has the countries best interest at heart...He may fuck it up very badly, but he will at least make decisions with that in mind.

B. Yep, that's my opinion, too.

There's a phrase used in the South, "Shot at and missed, S**t on and hit.
Kind of a mixture of exhilaration and disgust.
I think it was in "The River War" that Winston S. Churchill commented on the exhilaration one feels while being shot at by the enemy to no effect.
The rest is self explanatory.
