Apparently concerned that their ludicrous impeachment vote last month is already beginning to rust and decay, House Democrats headed back to the voting panel on Thursday to pass yet another meaningless anti-Trump resolution.
This time around, Nancy Pelosi and her crew of cuckoo birds have voted 224-194 to inform President Trump that he may not take any further military action against Iran unless he comes to Congress for permission. Like impeachment, this resolution is non-binding and serves no purpose other than to give cable news pundits something else to talk about. Democrats are desperate to prove to their base that they’re “doing something” in Washington, even if that something ultimately amounts to nothing.
“This is a statement of the Congress of the United States. I will not have that statement diminished by having the president veto it or not,” Pelosi said at her weekly press conference.
Somehow we doubt that this resolution is ever going to get as far as the president’s desk, but you have to love Pelosi’s boundless optimism. We wonder if that optimism extends as far as to hope for a Democrat in the White House by next January. Or does it end at the (rapidly diminishing) prospect of maintaining control of the House? Pelosi certainly seems to be doing everything she can to send both possibilities up in smoke.
Oh sorry, we forgot that she’s a “masterful” politician who has Trump right where she wants him.
In their capacity to despise this president and use every tactic in the book to oppose him, Democrats have exhausted our capacity to be surprised. However, they still maintain their ability to disgust us, and they have done so consistently and constantly since the Soleimani strike. If they aren’t accusing Trump of killing “the equivalent of the U.S. vice president,” they’re suggesting that he’s responsible for the commercial passenger jet that Iran shot down. Now they are telling him that he doesn’t have the authority reserved for the president under Article I of the Constitution, and they are telegraphing to Iran that America is not united against their terrorism.
We’re not among those who believe that questioning military action is tantamount to treason, but there comes a point where legitimate criticism transforms into aid and comfort for the enemy. In their zeal to paint Trump as the devil, Democrats have strode right up to that line, and quite a few of them have blatantly crossed it.
And we want to put one of theirs in the White House?
How about no.
