The media keeps hyping up liberal opposition to Trump because they want people to believe the left has the power to stop him. Reality is different, however. Democrats really don’t have the power to do much of anything.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Democrats proving powerless to stop Trump’s Cabinet
Senate Democrats have thrown everything they have at Republicans to stall President Trump’s nominees ahead of a bruising Supreme Court confirmation fight, but so far don’t have much to show for it.
Not one but two committees voted Thursday to advance the nomination of Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., for budget director to the Senate floor.
Mulvaney looked beatable. He had failed to pay payroll taxes on a nanny, something that had sunk nominees before. President Bill Clinton withdrew his first two choices for attorney general over a similar issue.
While fiscal conservatives applaud Mulvaney as a rare champion of limited government in Trump’s circle, these same economic and budgetary views were also promising openings for Democratic attacks.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., the ranking Democrat on the Senate Budget Committee and former presidential candidate, even compared Mulvaney’s views unfavorably to Trump’s.
If you think the left is freaking out now, just wait until another Supreme Court Justice retires and needs to be replaced.
Pass the popcorn, please!
