does Trump have the nerve to DO?

In the propwash of Donald Trump's ascendancy as president-elect of the United States on Tuesday, I think....

Let's see what he can DO. Doing takes courage. Undoing requires someone else's doing... that and a sense that being right is enough.

To suggest that tearing the old building down in order to make space for some new structure begs the question. For six years, for example, the Republicans have been sniping at Barack Obama's "Obamacare" health plan. Yet in all that time, their own plan has been notably absent. To suggest that no new plan is warranted is to relegate 20 million Americans to a dust bin in which they have no medical safety net at all. Is that satisfactory? It may be right from one point of view, but is it satisfactory?

The minute anyone says what they plan to DO, the backbiting begins. Has Trump got the balls for that? Angelic posturing only reaches so far.

I wonder what he has the balls to DO after all the un-doing is exhausted.


  1. It will be interesting to see if the republican congress will let him do anything.

    1. They probably will, with Ivanka Trump's photographs in their smartphones.
