With State of the Union speech, Trump “seized the center”

Kurt SchlichterHost of Take That

The State of the Union is strong; the State of the Democrat Party is perilous. You see, on Tuesday night Donald Trump seized the center, planting his flag right in the middle of the body politic where US elections are decided.

We saw Nice Donald, Unity Donald, the Donald of Kids with Cancer and War Heroes, focused on what we can do together while also arguing for (mostly) center-right policies that will appeal to the swing voters that Blustery Donald alienated.

We conservatives are OK with that; we'll take 90% of what we want over 0%.

But what can the Dems do? They have a hard, hard leftist faction that is in ascendance pulling them out of the political sweet spot.

Those suburban squishes who traded in their moderate Republicans for Moderate Democrats because Trump tweets mean stuff? They are not digging the 70% tax rate and losing their health insurance talk, nor are they down with killing actual babies.

Democrats have a real problem - no freedom of action, while Trump has no such concern - and that's how he's seized the vital center!

Thanks Robert… But I think it is more than “age taking its toll”…. Age is certainly a factor but , like Hillary Clinton, I suspect there is “medication” as a major factor at work there also…

Trump is loved by 80-85% of America?

I think you have your MAGA hat on too tight. That’s not even remotely true and doesn’t even make logical sense considering half of the country vote Democrat and will do so in 2020. Hell he is hated by people in his own party and people who work in the White House, never mind the American public.

Robert McClelland…. This is nothing new… If you remember last year during the SOTU, she was sitting among other Democrats and grimacing constantly… It would take some digging to go back to the comments then, but as I recall it was suggested that she has a mental problem and is on some kind of medication which makes her grimace like that…. Anybody remember the diagnosis??….

I’m trying to figure something out. During the SOTU Natterin’ Nancy’s mouth kept moving the whole time, while she had this sour look on her face.
Was she:
a) sucking on a lemon;
b) chewing her cud;
c) trying to get her dentures in place, or
d) all of the above?
Just askin’. 😎😁

Folks WAKE UP! President Trump is loved by 80-85% of America. The uniparty fully plans to steal it from President Trump in 2020. Massive voter fraud is coming to steal this country from us. The only question is WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? We have 100MM Patriot Gun owners. Let’s damn well act like it!

Never forget folks, ALL media IS CANCER to America. They hate you, they hate the Constitution, they hate Capitalism, they WANT Venezuela. The only person on our side is Glorious President Trump! Ask yourself, when the corrupt uniparty (both rep and dem) steal 2020 from Trump, will you sit on your hands and die while venezuela is implemented OR will you 1776 2.0 and reset America back to the founding fathers? It’s coming folks GET READY!
