When the speech was over -- after there was no longer a dry eye in the house from the introduction of the widow of the Navy SEAL -- they left the room faster than fans of the losing team after the Super Bowl, only in this case they left so stunned you had to wonder if they would ever win the game again or even compete.

Trump Disarms the Dems

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

By treating everything that Trump says as apocalyptic, the Democrats remind Americans that their participation in politics is pathetically restricted to denying problems, not solving them.
