The Old Pen and Phone Meme

For John, BLUFThe whole meme is a signal that we shouldn't expect the Democrats to understand the implications of their errors.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Where Law Professor Ann Althouse blogs about her son John Althouse Cohen and his comment on Facebook.

"Democrats have been arguing for years that President Obama should have the power to get a lot done on his own, without going through Congress: executive orders, going to war, etc.  If President Trump exercises similarly broad powers, remember:  Trump didn't build that!"

Quips my son John.

I didn't see any attribution to Senator Elizabeth Warren, although sometimes the expression is attributed to President Obama, wrongly.

The deeper point is that, like Senator Harry Reid and his "nuclear option", the Democrats have been breaking trail on this kind of imperial government and should not (but will) whinge when Mr Trump does similar things.  Frankly, I am hoping and praying that Mr Trump will be a bit more humble.

Hat tip to Ann Althouse.

  You remember Senator Reid.  He was the one who went to the well of the Senate, where he was protected from libel laws, and lied about Governor Mitt Romney's taxes.  He is the one who, when Mrs Clinton and President Obama were being gracious to Mr Trump concerning his victory on Tuesday, had a meltdown about Mr Trump.  It is a good thing he is returning to Search Light, Nevada and private life.  A divider, not a uniter.
