Did you watch the State of the Union address? As I watched, I wondered what a self-respecting Democrat thought of Nancy Pelosi’s antics. She put on the most childish display by a speaker of the House in the history of the country.

Pelosi said the speech was the biggest pack of lies she has ever heard — guess she didn’t listen to any of the impeachment inquiry. She said she had a right to tear up the speech. In the middle of the speech, four Democrats walked out. Sure makes you wonder what the Democrats’ agenda for this country looks like. I think that the Democrats’ problem is that they are frustrated by the accomplishments of Trump in three years.

Democrats are opposed to low unemployment for all Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans, lowest levels in history, fewer Americans on food stamps, more workforce participation, net worth of the bottom half of wage earners increasing by 47% and household incomes at historic levels.

What are they proposing? Fewer jobs and higher unemployment, higher taxes, more business regulations, gun control, abortions and phony $6 trillion a year government health care for all — in an attempt to buy votes, promise them anything.

America has gained 12,000 new factories under Trump after losing 60,000 under the previous two administrations.

Shame on you, Mr. President, how can you do this to the American people? Elect a Democratic president and we will change all that. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib criticized Trump, saying he has taken food stamps and government assistance away from those who need it. Can you believe this? Giving people the opportunity to get a job and become productive citizens is wrong? Sure it is, if you are a socialist seeking to control people’s lives.

Unfortunately, Pelosi is caught in the new left wing of the Democratic Party. Their goal is a socialist republic where the government controls every aspect of our lives.

The most disappointing part of the State of the Union was when President Trump recognized families of those who died in service to our country, reunited a military family and 100-year-old Tuskegee Airman and decorated war Hero Brigadier General Charles McGee, everyone in the House chamber was applauding except the Democrats, who sat on their hands and scratched their bottoms while Pelosi chewed on her lips.

Lastly in the “Give me a break” column, one of our local liberals approached me and started to rant about Rush Limbaugh receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom. There are people who were more deserving, those who died for our country and on and on. If he was this upset about Limbaugh, can you imagine how upset he was when Obama gave the same medal to Robert DeNiro, Robert Redford and Bruce Springsteen?

Time to wake up, America.
