Democrats Display Hypocrisy over Trump Nominees

Democrats and the liberal media are so blinded by their hatred of anything conservative or descent that they fail to realize their own hypocrisy.

The past couple of days have been filled with contradicting news, reports and statements from Democrats in Washington DC and the media.

To begin with, they were saying that Republicans are pushing too hard to get Donald Trump’s nominees approved by the Senate. They claimed that Republicans were moving too fast to give them any chance of looking into the backgrounds of many of Trump’s nominees.

Then the day before Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the same liberal media and some key Democrats are raising questions and complaints that Trump has fewer Cabinet and administration nominees approved compared to most past presidents. Several major media outlets were pointing out that Obama had 7 Cabinet members approved by the time he was nominated and a day before Trump’s inauguration, there were only 3 that had been approved.

So, which is it? Are Republicans moving too fast or too slow? The only reason approvals are moving slower than usual is that Senate Democrats are doing everything possible to delay and disrupt the approval process. The Democrats and liberal media are definitely displaying their hypocrisy over Trump’s nominees.

Then I listen to some of the key Democrats like Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) say that he just can’t approve a number of Trump’s nominees because they are bankers and billionaires.

So, what’s wrong with putting successful bankers and business men and women into running our government? For the past umpteen years, politicians have been running the country and they’ve done a terrible job. America’s national debt is nearly $20 trillion, of which over $4 trillion is owned by foreign nations including China.

If our government was a private company, it would have been out of business long ago for going bankrupt. The politicians operate with the mindset that they can spend, spend and spend some more. When Americans run their households like that, they end up losing their homes, cars and sometimes even land in jail for writing bad checks.

Is it any wonder that there have been record numbers of foreclosures and bankruptcies over the past decade? Millions of Americans have been running their homes like Congress and White House have been running the nation.

America desperately needs successful bakers and business men and woman at the helm to run the government and bring the uncontrolled spending under control. They need to run the government the same way they’ve run their banks and businesses – not spending more than they take in.

But Democrats like Schumer and the liberal media don’t want America run like a legitimate business. They want to continue spending America into total ruination. When many of the Senate Democrats sit on the committees to approve Trump’s nominees, they go in with preconceived biased blinders that prevent them from seeing what the nation needs or what is really going on.

I suspect that we’ll see several more months of hypocritical delays and statements from Senate Democrats. We’ll also see numerous bitter attacks of Trump and many of his nominees. Heaven forbid that Trump will actually succeed in fulfilling some of his campaign promises to improve the nation. After all, if Trump does succeed in just half of this promises, it just may be enough to get him re-elected in 2020 and the thought of that happening is terrifying to Democrats and the liberal media.
