Trump's support amongst blacks growing.

He has a higher rating with blacks than Mitt managed and he's better historically than most Rs in this regard I would bet.

If this stays or improves there will be no "blue wave". The Red Tide will consume all.

Of course that means we're stuck with a bunch of Republicans....

Sucks when the worm turns, huh, Dems?

Seems like it would have been better to keep tradition back in 2006 when you decided to blockade EVERYTHING by George W. Bush.

We remember. And we laugh.

Strangely, this was EXACTLY my hope of all the things that Trump might be able to accomplish. I said to my wife that if he could break the stranglehold the left has on the black population, it would be the greatest thing he could possibly accomplish as president.

I thought several of the NeverTrump Congressional Republicans were not running for reelection.  Not sure if that was all in this election or not.  Not everything, but a good start.

This thread should be stickied.

Quote
In one respect, it seems to me, the presidency of Donald Trump has been remarkably successful. In 17 months, he has effectively erased Barack Obamaĺs two-term legacy.

I donĺt want to say or face this. I still want to believe my colleague, Jonathan Chait, whose thesis is that the changes Obama made in his difficult but tenacious eight years in office are too great to reverse.

The media is, as usual, completely ignoring this major Trump accomplishment: in Donald Trump's America, black women can now hope for their daughters to marry princes, and become dutchesses.

Sometimes you just have to wonder how much of the stuff Donald Trump does is deliberate and not quite as haphazard as a lot of people think.

https://www.investors.com/politics/commentary/deregulation-nation-president-trump-cuts-regulations-at-record-rate/

Quote from: From the above link
Cutting Rules: Baseball season is winding down and, as it does, so is another grueling annual event: The U.S. government's fiscal year. But this year, with just two months to go, something remarkable is happening: Regulations are being slashed at a record rate.

A new report by the American Action Forum (AAF) says that not only is President Trump meeting his deregulation goals, he's exceeding them Ś in some cases, by a large amount.

"Collectively, executive agencies subject to regulatory budget remain on pace to double the administration's overall saving goal," wrote the AAF's Dan Bosch. "On an individual basis, 12 of 22 agencies have already met or surpassed their savings target."

"The Department of Labor enjoys the largest total savings of covered agencies with $417.2 million," Bosch wrote. "The Department of Health and Human Services comes in second in savings ... at $285.6 million. The Department of Transportation ranks third in annualized savings, followed by the Department of Justice."

All told, the government aimed for savings of about $686.6 million from deregulation so far this year. Right now, the government has saved some $1.308 billion from 47 separate deregulation actions.

Small business optimism at highest point in history.

The quit rate, which is not a thing I'd ever heard of, is at it's highest point in 17 years.

That means people have a lot of confidence that there's something better out there. This can only cause wages to go up...

Quote
Job postings exceeded the number of unemployed people by 659,000 in July, the most in data back to 2000. Along with the number of quitters, the gap helps explain why wages rose in August at the fastest pace since 2009,

US back in the top ten of economically freest countries according to Cato's metrics. Up five spots since last year. And up 10 spots from the last year in office of the previous guy.

https://www.cato.org/economic-freedom-world

Had the Dem candidate won the election I do not see the US moving back into the top ten, we probably would have dropped even further.

Quote
Hong Kong and Singapore retain the top two positions with a score of 8.97 and 8.84 out of 10, respectively. The rest of this yearĺs top scores are New Zealand, Switzerland, Ireland, United States, Georgia, Mauritius, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.

It is worth noting that the United States returned to the top 10 in 2016 after an absence of several years. The rankings of other large economies in this yearĺs index are Germany (20th), Japan (41st), Italy (54th), France (57th), Mexico (82nd), Russia (87th), India (96th), China (108th), and Brazil (144th). The 10 lowest-rated countries are: Sudan, Guinea-Bissau, Angola, Central African Republic, Republic of Congo, Syria, Algeria, Argentina, Libya, and lastly Venezuela.

Damn that Trump!

And there's a new NAFTA that, hopefully, will eliminate some of the Trade imbalances.    No exact details yet.

With the 15 that Cocaine Mitch is pushing through, I think that brings the total to 84.

I could not bring myself to vote for Trump as I thought he could not be trusted. (while still hoping he won, seeing the alternative.)

I could not be happier to have been proven so wrong. I cannot recall a president that has fulfilled his promises as well as Trump has.

(Only comparable, in my lifetime, is the 1994 Contract with America. They didn't promise they'd get everything done on the contract, but that they'd at least get it to the floor for a vote.)
