In what is quickly being called “The American Carnage” speech, the tone seems angry and bitter. Who should be surprised?January 20, 2017 at 3:56 pm #26348proud2baconservativeSpectator
Great speech by the POTUS today. Uplifting and hopeful that substantial and positive changes will be made.
Excerpt from inauguration speech of President Donald John Trump:
For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished — but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered — but the jobs left, and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes — starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.
It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.January 20, 2017 at 4:08 pm #26349
Trump sucks.January 20, 2017 at 4:55 pm #26351Andy BrownParticipant
Clearly the worst inauguration speech ever.

Great quote I heard yesterday on NPR from someone on the street:

George Will doesn’t get it.
Trump is actually going to fix things.
He hasn’t learned to take trump seriously instead of literally.January 21, 2017 at 1:40 pm #26384BrianlParticipant
The problem is, Trump demands us to take him literally.
His actions make it impossible to take him seriously.January 21, 2017 at 2:13 pm #26385Andy BrownParticipant
And he is not capable of ‘fixing’ things because the GOP doesn’t understand what is broken. They never have. Vern, you are going way out on a limb for a guy that has a proven record of failure in business, a dismally embarrassing record in business relations, a two time failure in personal relations and absolutely no political experience. Plus, he has aligned with his former adversaries in the Republicans who he hardly ever agrees with. A standalone independent as President is unique, but thinking as you would like us to think you do, predicting great success and heretofore difficult accomplishments when the GOP track record is more one of total economic malfeasance is at the very most a stretch of your perverted imagination.
We would all like to see him succeed, but that’s a lot different then declaratory statements such as yours. Most of us are sick of your unsubstantiated rhetoric which serves no one except yourself. Truth is, you are a known liar with the shallowest of credentials. Have you noticed the trend here at pdxradio is now to totally ignore your posts as much as possible? Clearly your pariah status here serves your mental disorder so you stick around, but the truth is you would not be missed if you left. One can only hope. You need to be prepared, more so than anyone at this point, for the colossal failure of Republicans to fix anything that’s broken and to rape the government coffers for their own gain while drumpf nods and signs as the economy and the country fall into the usual GOP abyss of failure.January 21, 2017 at 2:57 pm #26386
Yeah, he can “fix” things by ending insurance for millions of Americans and cutting Medicare and social security benefits. If only those people would just die early – that would “fix” a lot of problems, right?January 21, 2017 at 3:33 pm #26387VitalogyParticipant
Speaking of his horrid speech, there’s this:
“From this moment on, it’s going to be America First,” he announced. “Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.”
Talk is cheap because on the same day, the first executive order he signs is to reverse the FHA Mortgage insurance premium cut, which was by 25 basis points. This reduction would save the average home buyer $500-$600 a year.
It should be noted that FHA loans are a mainstay of the average middle class household, and first time homebuyers.
How does this help American families?January 23, 2017 at 2:45 pm #26446LurkingGrendelParticipant
It doesn’t. It helps corporations.
Expect silence from the usual band of propaganda spewing imbeciles.
