PeopleforPence.com (website coming) does not oppose Tweety because of the policies of the Trump administration. We want to replace Tweety with his Vice President, because we want those policies continued, without all the drama.
Tweety is temperamentally unfit for the Presidency. Pence would be another Reagan or Eisenhower, in his deportment in office. To be a man, you have to act like a man, and comport yourself as a man does. It’s the same with the Presidency. Act like a President, comport yourself as a President. That’s Pence to a T, and that’s why we want him as our Presidential replacement.
It would be absolutely ruinous to this country to impeach Tweety, or remove him from office under the 25th Amendment. He was elected fair and square, and should be allowed to serve out his term. We just don’t want him as the next nominee of the Republican Party, and we don’t want him reelected.
Trump will have been a one term wonder, exceeding in historic significance all but a few Presidents. He has singlehandedly revolutionized American trade policy, restored our credibility as a great power, and launched us on the road to energy dominance. Not bad for one term. Only James K. Polk did better than that.
I badly underestimated Trump before he took office. I have watched in amazement at his accomplishments, at the EPA, at Interior, at State. The list goes on.
Trump’s tax bill will be his greatest triumph. It was a policy and political masterpiece. Some times I shake my head in disbelief. Tweety did that? When Tweety is good, Tweety can be very good indeed.
A second term would lower him in the eyes of history. Reagan would have been better off if he quit after one term, but the Cold War was still going in 1984, and winning that war took more than four years. But from 1987 on, Reagan wasn’t himself. He made serious mistakes, like Iran-Contra. And, of course, sadly, his mind was going.
Tweety loves the life lives in his gilded Manhattan cage. Let him enjoy what time on earth he has left. He has done enough. In one term, he will have more good for this country than all but a few men. That’s something. That’s a legacy. That’s what the name Trump will signify in American history.
But, like almost all of the rest of us, he has a fatal flaw — his temperament. That’s the way he was born, and he can’t change. With Trump what you see is what you get, and at the age he and I are, you don’t change.
I don’t want to have to work on PeopleforPence. I have a lot of other things I can do. I want Trump to pass the torch, and I sincerely hope and pray that he does.
Our founding father, George Washington, stunned the world when he walked away from power when the war was over. He was that big of a man, and he was universally recognized as a great man. Some times walking away, somehow, increases your stature. And so it would be for Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States.
