Trump's Speech from a Different Perspective

By Eric G Braun, Senior Writer, USRW

It wasn’t a home run by most accounts, and mine for what it’s worth, but it was a grand slam.

President Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress and the nation was reminiscent of the debate hype that the media loves to play up for ratings. Of course, the endless pundits and arm chair advisors chewed on the hypothetical to fill all that air time.

Americans are getting smart to all that hype, and it does not work like it used to. After this past election cycle, we all lost our political innocence.

You probably watched the speech, along with approximately 47 million other folks. Some were there to support, mock or just tuned in for the potential train wreck. After all, it’s Trump and anything is possible on any given day.

By now, you've heard all the catch lines, the sound bites, the water cooler, and lunch room fodder. Those who want to bash him will, those who support him remain steady and sure. Trump’s speech was for those with an open mind to him, as well as foreign governments. Trump likes to play his military cards close to his chest, as he should. Keeping those third world leaders and dictators in line is best when not openly discussing the details and military moves.

The question remains though, is Trump unstable or just misunderstood?

Perhaps a bit of both--it’s not a bad thing. After all, are you totally stable?

I’m not.

Trump was the President last night, plain and simple. The left can spin all they want, their conduct and disrespect during the speech was shameful. Even a CNN poll, proved that 4 out of 5 Americans felt positive about the speech. By acting the way they did during and after the speech, the Democrats only dug themselves deeper into their hole.

Senator Nancy Pelosi (D) California, managed to crawl out of the hole, saw Trump's shadow and now we have 47 months of right wing bliss.

I had to ask myself, as many did, if this was a coming out party of the Presidential Trump, and if so, will it last?

I sure hope so, because last night was a key moment for his future and ours. The Democrats should be very afraid. Trump dilated more eyes than an ophthalmologist. If Trump can hold onto those who he reached last night, outside of his base, the left is in more trouble than they thought. Time is not on the side of the left, midterm elections are two years away, and that's not a lot of time to reinvent the party and win back some of those who joined team Trump.

The Senate Chambers is hallowed ground. Our history is made in that room. It’s the nation's classroom, their kitchen table, and America's conscience. The chamber belongs to the people, something that we seemed to have forgotten.

A famous President once said, “My job is not to represent the world, my job is to represent the United States of America”.

Trump was the one who said that on Tuesday night. If he stays on the course he set that night, and truly gives the government back to the people, there is no stopping him.

Hitting the long ball is always good, but sometimes just good base running and base hits can win the game. Trump’s next at bat must be at least a base hit to quiet those who claim it was beginners luck, and a “one hit wonder”.

Pelosi and her lineup will have to keep an eye on him if he gets on base, Trump is quick and loves to take a big lead.
