Perhaps The Oddest Moment Of The Week

Grassley praying that the president would do what any sane person would do and what he (the president) had promised he would do.

This little snippet says a lot. 

The very first thing it says is that Grassley – and most likely the whole Republican Party – can’t trust their president. After all, he had once before promised he would sign a similar bill only to flip and veto said bill upon criticism from Sean Hannity. Since Trump wasn’t right there to be watched, could they trust him? Could they trust Trump to stand up to near certain criticism from the usual group of idiots?

Grassley’s utterances were not really a prayer but more of a wish thrown to the universe. More of a thinking out loud kind of a moment. Grassley is basically thinking to himself that this is not the way things are supposed to work. Oh, please, may this man do what he is supposed to do. 

Grassley has been in the senate forever. Now he has to deal with a person who is less adult and more like a child. Grassley’s utterance is more like a hope that the children will behave. He asks that the president have “wisdom.” That is can the president act like an adult?

At the end Grassley states “we don’t want the government to shut down.” Grassley is almost begging Trump not to cut the throat of his own party again. The last shutdown was basically a lockout by Trump. Republicans were blamed, especially when none of them would stand up to their Dear Leader and call him out. It was a huge disaster for the Republican Party that will not be forgotten by voters in 2020.

Most every family in the country was affected in some small way by the 35 day Trump lockout. Stating that government doesn’t work and must be “drowned in a bathtub” has been the Republican mantra for over 30 years. Trump’s lockout proved that mantra to be yet another of the Republican Party’s false beliefs. We need government and we need it to work effectively and efficiently. Grassley doesn’t want another round of lockout to reinforce the need for good government.

Finally we have Grassley performing what has become one of the most useless acts that craven politicians resort to. That is “praying” rather than acting. Praying is simply wishing that something does or doesn’t happen when actually doing something could really affect the outcome. Instead of “praying” that Trump would do what he was supposed to, why not send a delegation to discuss the situation. That would be doing something.

I send many emails to the Ernst office. I comment on a problem and almost always end my emails with “What are you going to do?” I seldom get a response anymore. Once upon a time I would get responses that filibustered the issue with no answer as to what she would do. Now I get nothing. Which is her way of saying I am not going to do anything.

Time for Republicans to quit wishing and face up to the real problems.

    I signed up for Joni’s emails. After I leveled her a few times in responses to her drivel, I stopped getting her craven messages. COWARDS.

    Sometimes it’s better not to get a response. Years ago I sent a carefully-composed snail mail letter to Grassley about a conservation issue, knowing he’d vote the wrong way but feeling the need to try anyway. In response, I got a snail-mail letter from Grassley thanking me for my support for capital punishment.
