A bad case of the Grumpy Uglies

a case of the grumpy uglies

There’s nothing more frustrating than seeing voter enthusiasm being tamped down, not by the other side, but by people who are supposed to be on our side. Honestly, these #NeverTrump folks have a bad case of the Grumpy Uglies.

Why do you think I call them Team Eeyore?

The most important ingredient in an election is voter enthusiasm. It’s vital. If voters aren’t excited about a candidate they are less likely to get out and vote.

Right now, there is precious little enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton. People don’t trust her. They don’t particularly like her. She can’t fill up a high school gymnasium without making the students fill up the empty seats.

Why do you think the Enslaved Press is constantly running stories about Trump “unraveling?” They can’t generate excitement for a dud like Hillary, so they’re trying to discourage you.

The only chance Hillary Clinton has of winning is if the Enslaved Press can dampen the enthusiasm for Donald Trump.

What makes it all the more irritating is the sourpusses in the #NeverTrump movement have joined the effort to dispirit you. They’re like our own personal black cloud hovering overhead looking to rain on any potential parade.

Truth is, there is quite a lot that has happened these last couple weeks to give Trump supporters reason to be enthusiastic. He has hit more than a couple home runs.

His policy speeches on the economy, terrorism and law and order were terrific.

He’s been really upping his game on the campaign trail.

The trip to Louisiana was pitch-perfect.

Truth is, over the last several weeks, I have gone from a grudging Trump voter to an enthusiastic Trump supporter. And I doubt I’m alone in this.

That kind of enthusiasm is the key to victory in November.

One of the main reasons I’ve been highlighting Trump’s outstanding campaigning is to remind you guys that there is very good reason to be excited.

I am thrilled that Trump is making the case to black voters. It’s about damn time a Republican candidate laid out the facts about the destruction the Democrat Party has caused in black communities.

But as soon as I start voicing approval, Team Eeyore turns up to lift their leg on the enthusiasm and piss all over it.

“It’s too little too late.”

“Trump isn’t going to get any black people to vote for him because he’s a racist.”

“That’s not how you reach out to black voters.”

Whenever Trump supporters have reason to celebrate, the #NeverTrumpers mope in, drop their pants and shit on the cake.

They can’t help themselves.

Team Eeyore has got a case of the Grumpy Uglies.

If you point out polling that shows Hillary’s lead has all but evaporated, in come the #NeverTrumpers dragging their soaking wet blanket behind them.

“Trump’s already lost this. His campaign is in shambles.”

“Hillary’s gonna win in a landslide. Trump’s campaign is a joke.”

Is their blood-sugar low?

Do they need a Snicker’s Bar?!

The only time I see them brimming with excitement is when Hillary is doing well in the polls.

Do they want Trump to lose?

Yes! They do!

But don’t worry. They’re not helping Hillary win.

Not at all.

Their attempts to dampen voter enthusiasm won’t hurt Trump on election day. Nope. Not one bit.

This next part is directed toward people who want to defeat Hillary in November and are actually looking forward to voting for Trump.

You know what is at stake in this election.

Don’t let these naysayers with a bad case of the Grumpy Uglies get you down.

Deprive them of the satisfaction of crapping on your enthusiasm.

In fact, become a happy warrior.

When they see they’re not getting to you, eventually, they’ll give up and mope away.

    I am not a NeverTrumper – I am a principled, Constitutional Conservative. As such, I abhor the prospect of what the She-Fuehrer would do to this country and will vote for Trump, but you expect enthusiasm? Really? The only thing Trump has going for him is that he’s not Hillary – WHICH IS SAYING SOMETHING – but this election is like asking, “would you prefer to have both legs cut off or both arms, both legs and having your eyes gouged out?” I’ll go with just the legs, but it isn’t a pleasant prospect!

      Note this sentence:
      “This next part is directed toward people who want to defeat Hillary in November and are actually looking forward to voting for Trump.”

      and are actually looking forward to voting for Trump.

      I didn’t demand that you be enthusiastic. I was addressing those who are enthusiastic. If you want to stomp your way into the voting booth and grumpily pull the lever for Donald Trump, great. As long as you are voting for Trump, I’ll take it. But I did not tell you that you MUST be enthusiastic when you do it.

    Dianne, while I understand the importance of voting against Hitlery, it’s hard for me to comprehend your Coulter-like enthusiasm for Captain Combover. We’ve agreed on so much ideologically since your all the right snark days, that I can only attribute it to your Unfortunate medical condition. I hope you feel better soon, dear.

    Wow. A more passive-aggressive snotty comment, I have never read. Apparently I struck a nerve to make you so completely condescending. – Dianny

      Snotty? Definitely. Striking a nerve? No way. I hold to my principles which, (although I will be forced to vote for him), Trump in no way represents. Perhaps the nerves being struck are yours as a defense mechanism for coping with the guilt of abandoning your ideals and becoming a Trump fangirl.

        Noble the way you use the “I know you are but what am I” “principled” argument. Yes, I’m a great big fangirl. That’s why I was deeply critical of him during the primaries. If only I were principled enough to mope and bitch and call him names and dispirit voters to the point where they don’t bother voting. Oh, I am so ashamed that I’m not that kind of “principled” conservative.

    Ohh myyy goodness. For fucks sakes. Only a complete passive aggressive asshole would throw a medical condition at someone because they got a case of the butthurts.

    John, thank you so much for your magnificent sacrifice. I could just kiss your boots in my total appreciation of your deigning to wallow with us “fan girls” and vote for Trump, despite how it goes against your beloved principles.

    Seriously, nobody gives a shit about your principles at this point. Nobody cares how it makes you feel to have to vote for such a philistine as Trump. No one is claiming he’s God’s gift to Conservatism, but he’s orders of magnitude better than the Bitch of Benghazi. So suck it up, buttercup.

    And to bring up Diann’s illness in such a disgusting statement tells me that you aren’t nearly as principled as you would have us believe. That was a shit move, worthy of a liberal. You may have what you consider principles, but you sure as as hell have no class.

    Dear Dianne,
    Please allow me to apologize for my rude comments earlier. Although I meant it as a tongue-in-cheek, Snarky (pun intended) remark, your responses – as well as those preceding this one – have made me realize I crossed the line. I never intended to make fun of your illness, although I can clearly see now how it could be interpreted that way. As Anne suggested, those aren’t the principles I believe in and have fought for, and I’m sorry. The fact that I can’t muster the enthusiasm for the Liberal NY Big Government Democrat (https://patriotretort.com/democrat-socialist-win-indiana/) as you seem to have, is no excuse. I’ve enjoyed your wit and intellect over the years and you have nothing but my respect. I thought I was just being funny, but obviously not. I apologize to your readers, as well. My bad.

    Hi, Dianny, I found my way to this post via the comments to the “Fur Ban” post at iOTWreport and I am so glad that I did! Thank you for your eloquent encouragement to all of us on the Trump Train who want to derail Crooked Hitlery Rotten Clinton and the rest of the left’s deleterious agenda for America and all of Western Civilization. F*ck #NeverTrump.
