For their part, the democrats represented a sullen group the night that President Trump delivered one of better State of the Union Addresses of all time.
They don’t agree with him on much of anything and their failure to applaud items like paid family leave for the private sector when required and lowering the federal income tax for those in the middle class, they were too disorganized to applaud.
Democrats have not been the party of inclusion but the party of delusion.
With Perez heading the D.N.C. they will remain the party outside the tent, pissing and moaning to get in.
He’s going to take it to Trump?
Get serious, he almost lost the DNC Chairmanship to the Muslim Senator from Minnesota’s Little Somalia.
Tom Perez D.N.C. Chair.
Democrats for the last 50 years have only survived by bribing their constituents with the “Free Stuff,” which of course isn’t free.
Trump clearly signaled he wants to work with the Democrats.
Thus far they have shown no inclination to do so.
The Democrat Party by its behavior has destined itself to several decades in the darkness, and deservedly so.
To a person, they were hoping the evening would be a massive train wreck which President Trump did not let happen.
Nope, he was soft-spoken and laid out clear plans as possible.
The only way the evening could have been a complete failure is if Hillary were elected and we chose the time to spend watching and listening to her Marxist, progressive hogwash.

For those of you who seem to be a bit confused, the take home message is that Islam is supposed to be the “Religion of Peace Love and Kindness.
As does civility, leadership, unity, and the facts.
The mark of great presidents is optimism, visionary optimism, and transformational optimism.
During Tuesday night’s remarkable speech before Congress, the loudest standing ovation was given to the wife of Navy Seal Carryn Owens, widow of U.S. Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William “Ryan” Owens for his bravery under fire in this team’s raid in Yemen.
Donald Trump was brimming with optimism, from start to end.
My guess is that his marvelous speech will imbue and inspire new optimism and confidence throughout the entire country.
Stock markets surged over 300 points the day after the speech, and I’ll bet the president’s approval ratings jump over 20 points.
There are so many Trump cynics and critics who watched this event and hoped for a train-wreck, shock-value disaster.
Whoops. It didn’t happen. They completely misjudged Mr. Trump.
He wasn’t angry. He didn’t lash out.
His voice was calm and modulated. And he was incredibly effective.
In fact, he was riveting. You couldn’t take your eyes off him.
You couldn’t even take a bathroom break. You didn’t want to miss a word.
President’s Trump’s speech was infused with civility, which is something we all hoped for as an alternative to the coarseness of American politics (and the rest of the culture, for that matter).
PresidentTump, made fact-based arguments on the economy, health care, education, immigration, national security, and public safety.
And he did so respectful.
He attempted to persuade, and it was wonderful to watch. And time and again, he reached across the aisle to the Democrats.
This was a unity speech, not a partisan one. (Unfortunately the progressive left will neve see it that way)
The president asked for common ground.
During Tuesday night’s remarkable speech before Congress, Donald Trump was brimming with optimism, from beginning to end.
