The old “Next Time” strategy — we know it well

next time

Whelp. So much for vetoing the crap-pile Omnibus Spending Bill. Just a short time ago, President Trump signed it into law.

But you’re on notice, Congress. Next Time look out!

That’s right. Next Time you come up with a crap-pile, President Trump is putting a line in the sand. Next Time that bill won’t get signed!

Of course by then we’ll be another trillion dollars in debt because he already signed this crap-pile.

But be warned! Next Time you won’t get away with it!!

I’m sure Nancy and Chuck are in a nervous sweat over that.

No! Just kidding! They’re laughing all the way to the midterms.

Hell, they don’t even need to win the midterms. Chuck and Nancy are already in charge of Congress.

Ah, yes. That old “Next Time” strategy is something we conservatives are very familiar with. After all, it is a variation of the old “Just give us” song Republicans have been singing for years.

Just give us the House.

Oh, and now just give us the Senate.

But wait! Just give us the White House.

And Next Time, boy will we do you proud!

I’m sorry, Mr. President. But voicing just how disgusted you are with this bill as you put your name on it just isn’t a very powerful statement.

This omnibus bill just spanked the “forgotten men and women” who rallied behind you and put you into office.

And as we get spanked, your response is, “Believe me. This hurts me more than it hurts you.”

Um. No. It doesn’t.

You’re not the one with knife sticking in your back.

Actually, I guess I should make that “knives.”

The first knife in the back we expected. After all, we’re used to Ryan and McConnell sticking it to us.

But now we just had our President plunge a second one in — all the way up to the hilt.

Now maybe there’s something I’m not seeing here.

Maybe this is some clever 4-D Chess mastery.

But from where I’m standing – here with two knives sticking out of my back – this pretty much looks like a cave.

The Democrats and the spineless pricks in the Republican leadership held the country hostage. And you just paid the big, fat juicy ransom using our money.

You’ve given them absolutely no reason to believe that Next Time you’ll do anything differently.

And why should they fear Next Time?

When Next Time comes, they’ll concoct another two thousand page bill that gives you a teeny tiny victory on page 789, while the remainder of the 2000+ pages will be loaded up with lard. And they’ll dare you not to sign it — knowing that you will sign it just to get that thing on page 789.

The time to draw the line in the sand isn’t Next Time, Mr. President.

No. The time to draw the line in the sand was at one o’clock today when you still could have vetoed that crap-pile.

And it didn’t happen.

To say I’m angry with you right now is probably an understatement.

    Mattis put him up to signing it. Of all people.
    I hope they get a lot of info from that $$$$ they spent on research of the drunk sexcapades of African women or whatever the hell it was.

    I’m very disappointed! No MAGA today.

    Did we just go from empty chair to empty podium? lol
    I mean, I’m not trying to go tear down the Trump posters off my wall and throw away all his albums and T-shirts, but, damn. This really pisses me off.

      There’s a reason I chose this particular image.

        And no, like you Meli, I’m not washing my hands of Donald Trump over this. But I too am hopping mad. He’s getting led by the nose by Nancy and Chuck. Of course it doesn’t help that the Republican Leadership won’t actually work to advance Trump’s agenda. But today was one of those times he needed to stand out on a ledge by himself and holler “STOP!”

    Perhaps he really only want’s to be a one-term President. Maybe the hat should read “Make America Greatish” or better yet “Make America Great Enough…for Government Work”.

    It looks more and more like Don want to get out!

    Bad, bad, but still better than the other 2 this century. but not much better

    I was told by President Trump he would never let me down.

    Trump is a centrist. He is not trying to abandon the other half of the country.

    • March 23, 2018 at 4:34 pm

      He didn’t abandon the other half of the country.

    Was there even an election in 2016? It’s really looking like a whole lot more of business as usual.

  • March 23, 2018 at 5:28 pm

    I’m seeing waaaaay too many similarities between Trump and Obama drawing lines in the sand and then backing down.

  • March 23, 2018 at 7:30 pm

    Trump is pretty darn smart and I have faith he knows what he’s doing.
    It’s a big swamp to drain

    ROOKIE…’re fired!

  • March 23, 2018 at 11:01 pm

    Good thing I still have some refills left on the medication I took during Obama’s terms. It’s going to be one helluva year with the midterms adding to the mess.

    It’s easy to blame Slummer and Pelogosi for this travesty but don’t forget that Mooch McConnell and Lying Ryan aided and assisted in the writing of this POS. Not to mention the republican push to pass this bowl movement. I would have preferred a government shut down over this.

    I am so angry w/him that I could slap him! He got absolutely snookered by Lyin’ Ryan, No Chin Mitch and, unfortunately, Mattis (whose main concern seems to be getting as many “whatever sex” in the military). I do think he just killed his re-election chances because how can we trust him now. And the mid-terms? Oh, he just gave the leftists their “in” for impeachment process.

    what is the point of voting for republicans. the democraps are supposedly in the minority and they get more than they would have gotten had they been in the majority. and the repub leaders are congenital liars. nothing they say should ever be believed.
