Mid-Morning Open Thread

The Letter
Auguste Toulmouche

Dear President Trump,

Please start your reelection campaign this morning. While I am pleased with your accomplishments, and the possibility of another (or two!) Supreme Court appointment along with a sea change in the rest of the Federal judiciary fills me with glee, The possibility of a Democrat victory in 2020 is one that is too terrible to contemplate. The midterms are always difficult, and you survived last night in reasonably good shape...certainly better than your last several predecessors.

Fortunately I have no campaign advice to give you, and I base that decision on the reality that if I had been giving you advice in 2016, this morning we would be halfway through a Hillary Clinton presidential term.

I do however have some comments. Your instincts with real Americans are marvelous; if you could make personal contact with every voter I have no doubt that your reelection would be a sure and wondrous thing. But your enemies are entrenched everywhere, and their only mission is to manipulate your message.

And what is that message? MAGA? Of course, but your work with the economy -- in particular regulation -- has paid dividends that are carefully minimized and hidden and even credited to others. As a vile but clever political operative once said, "It's the economy, stupid!" And yes, the majority of America wants that wall built and illegal immigration stopped. How to send that message without giving daily soundbites to the whores of the media is a difficult task, and one that I believe you can accomplish.

Our standing in the world has always been a difficult one to manage. As long as you support our friends and project strength, the American people will trust you, because the truth is that they don't really care what French academics or Canadian SJWs or British MPs think of us. Keep our sons out of unnecessary conflicts and we will trust you with the rest.

Most of all, always remember who your enemies are. The elites of the Acela corridor gave their friends the Democrats victory last night. Does anyone really believe that a united Republican party would have lost that many seats? Bipartisanship should be a dirty word in the mouths of all Republicans. It is the President...you!...who makes the decision to accommodate the opposing party. It is not the purview of some back-bencher with delusions of grandeur. Bind your allies in Congress to you with hoops of steel, and punish those who would defy you. If a purge is necessary, then do it with alacrity! The American people reward decisiveness.

And most of all? Do what you promised. Good things will flow from that!

Cheers,
CBD
