Democrat attacks on Trump misfire
Are President Obama, Hillary Clinton and violent leftists in cahoots to elect Donald Trump? Or are they just idiots?Goodwin also hits Hillary's speech about foreign policy while ignoring the scores dying because of the failures she and Obama created. Then there was the Democrat riot in San Jose where Trump supporters were attacked. It is interesting that they attack Trump as some kind of crypto-fascist while their supporters act like fascist brown shirts.
The evidence is overwhelming that they all belong to a conspiracy — either of secret GOP sympathizers or of dunces. Those are the only options after Democrats took turns denouncing Trump in ways that actually bolstered the potency of his arguments. Three examples tell the tale.
First, Obama traveled to Indiana to deliver what aides called his first attempt to influence the election. That’s a lie, of course, but not the biggest one of the day. No. 1 would be Obama’s touting the economy as a roaring success.
“If what you care about in this election is your pocketbook; if what you’re concerned about is who will look out for the interests of working people and grow the middle class,” the president claimed, “if what you’re concerned about is the economy, then the debate is not even close.”
He crowed about “progress” made during his tenure, and said sticking with Democrats was the only sensible option.
Two days later, the Labor Department reported that employers added a mere 38,000 jobs in May, the worst report in six years. Even with massive help from the Federal Reserve, the economy’s slow growth means it has created three million fewer jobs than it should have by now, making Obama’s boast look ridiculous.
It also makes Trump’s focus on creating jobs and criticism of international trade deals look like the right ideas. After all, if puny growth for seven years is the best Obama can do, why not give the other team and other ideas a chance?
