A lot of mixed emotions today. I don't think Trump ever demonstrated that he understood the office of the president. At this point though, I want him to be very successful, just like I wanted Obama to be successful when he won the first time. A successful president means a Successful USA.
But I'm VERY happy Hillary Clinton will be denied the Presidency. Her arrogant sense of entitlement always rubbed me the wrong way. And it was that sense of entitlement that prevented her from ever formulating an effective message to the American people.
Her de facto message was "More of the same!" when the Sanders supporters were a VERY strong indication that very FEW people, even in the Democratic party, wanted more of the same.
Her hubris created a situation where the only option for the American people who wanted change, was Donald Trump. They felt they had better take this chance because if this uprising failed, the political class would tighten down the controls and further efforts at change would be impossible.
Obama's increasing politicization of the DOJ, and the IRS would only accelerate under a Hillary Clinton administration. And frankly, that scared the **** out of me.
In the end, I held my nose and voted for Trump. I was not happy with my choices, but the bruised apples I was given only allowed for applesauce.
