He got elected yesterday. Amazing. His acceptance speech was fairly good but certainly not perfect. It sounded like a playback of his raucous campaign speeches, and it did hit all of the contentious topics that are bothering most Americans. As usual, his arrogance took the edge off nearly every topic as he spoke. He continued to promise aggressive action to cure America's many problems, and to do so immediately. This impossible rhetoric was gratefully accepted with loud cheers voices and waving flags, but by only half by half of the audience.
Our new president is a tough old bird. Standing right in front of the Presidents of previous administrations he called them all ineffective and wasteful executives who have given away the country in order to enhance their positions, and avoid dismissal. He had no compliments or soft words for the political men and women that have lead America in recent years. He made it crystal clear that many of them have been lazy in office, in effectual in Congress, and made say too many poor legal decisions in the courts.
