The GOP won two special election -- one in Georgia, another in South Carolina -- to hold on to two seats vacated by Executive Branch appointments. Now the elections are over and the Republicans own the Congress and the White House. Now what?
So far we haven't seen the repeal of Obamacare. We haven't seen tax reform. We haven't seen the promised border wall or immigration policy reform. We haven't even seen the launch of a Federal investigation into the DNC or the Clinton Foundation, let alone an investigation into Hillary Clinton's abuse of intelligence clearances. We gave them what Republicans said they needed to effectively govern and so far we haven't seen any governing; no reforms, no getting the country back to good.
Lest I need to remind everyone, soon the political creatures in the Legislative Branch will have to -- once again -- put the job of governing on the back burner to run for re-election again. That means more promises without any action on following through on those promises.
The GOP is in a very ugly situation. They need to make good on each and every promise made during every campaign since the passage of Obamacare and they have scant time to do it.
Perhaps it is time for them to learn to walk and chew gum at the same time. While they navigate the bullsh*t investigations of the Progressive Left -- investigations meant to do exactly what they are doing, run out the clock until the mid-terms, they must start achieving goals and keeping promises...pronto!
If they do not, the GOP will be hobbled, possible beyond repair, and the nation will be doomed to Progressivism. That will deliver to us the demise of the Republic.
