Congratulations, Mr. President, on your first year in office.

In the upcoming State of the Union Address you should highlight our strong economy, progress against ISIS, cuts in taxes and regulation, judicial appointments and more. You should paraphrase Ronald Reagan by asking: are you better off than you were one year ago? An overwhelming majority will say yes. But please, Mr. President, don’t let Democrats change the focus from the state of the union to the state of your mind.

Of course, your opponents have been nasty and unfair, but hitting back at them in similarly nasty terms only diminishes your stature. By emphasizing the undeniable progress of everyday Americans, you will build on your first year’s success. And you can overcome the highly personal attacks of your critics more effectively by ignoring them, rather than responding to them.

    I would invite anyone to watch a side-by-side comparison video of Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi, and then decide who's mental capacity should be questioned.

      Well you have set the bar low there, but Nancy would win because she isn’t a perverted vulgarian.

    "And you can overcome the highly personal attacks of your critics more effectively by ignoring them,"

    Were you out of the country during this deviant's campaign, Michael? Does it not seen unstable to you that a man who, for an entire year, sullied and personally insulted his competitors, mocked the disabled, trashed and lied about Muslims, Mexicans, women, the free press, – and fabricated out of his unfocused brain lie after lie after lie?

    I am glad that you mentioned the SOTU. I am soooo looking forward to watching and listening to the SOTU.

    Trump can thank Obama for the positive economic recovery. He had the tail wind of positive economic trajectory on his side. So “he” can boast he brought the unemployment rate down .5%

      Oh wow… here we go. Obama, who was never responsible for anything bad during his 8 crappy years in office, is now why we are experiencing an economic upturn.
      You libtards are pathetic.
      Do logic, reason and facts ever enter the equation in your world?
