At what point is it going to sink in that it hasn’t been about Clinton since at least inauguration day, if not the Electoral College voting day, and the only people fixated on Clinton are those who sole purpose in life seems to be to smugly rub it in people’s face that their candidate won the popularity contest, even if he’s actively failing at his job?

I suppose it will start to sink in when people actually think he’s failing at his job. So far:


….although 42.8 is historically low for a new president at this juncture, if Mr. Trump holds that number through to December, he’ll be higher than where Mr. Obama is at THAT juncture. Hardly data you can make a “he’s failing” case around. (In fact, I think after a few early -on stumbles which are not uncommon for new presidents, the new administration is demonstrating a rather impressive learning curve.

Trump may have won the election, but at this rate, we’re all losing. It’s time to start judging him by his own merits or lack thereof, instead of constantly running back to the fallacious and tired non-argument of “but Hillary!”

I am sorry that you are “losing”, and that the only article you can cite to back that opinion up is Siskind’s regrettable propaganda piece.

However, I am not losing in the slightest. So please be careful of your use of the royal “we”. And, btw, Mr. Tracy’s article is clearly NOT an example of relative privation, since he is not defending Mr. Trump on the grounds of Mrs. Clinton being a worse choice — so you might consider keeping your straw men to yourself.
