I watched the Democrat response to the State of the Union address, although I find these infuriating.
I wasn’t disappointed.
Bitter Stacey Abrams, the failed gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, spoke for about ten minutes. She looked like a preacher in her big red dress with a choir of supporters on bleachers behind her. Abrams, indeed, was talking to the choir – her own party.
Her speech was one big virtue signal. She talked about how great her Dad was in giving his coat to others and in his life of kindness. Perhaps he should be running instead of her. It was standard Democrat sob story stuff.
Abrams touched on her failed election, saying that she wants election integrity. However, she also is OK with giving illegals a vote. That doesn’t square.
Her other point was to criticize Trump for the shutdown. Analysis has shown that the shutdown did no damage to the economy or to our job situations.
For those who stayed to watch Abrams, they probably remained unswayed. Democrats love her for being a Democrat, but she was quite a comedown from the terrific speech by the president.
