    Your post could be the basis of a sociology student's Phd dissertation.

    We are really not disagreeing. You confirm my allegation.

    Remember when Trump offered amnesty for millions of illegals and the Dems said no about a year ago?

    They aren’t interested in compromise.

    That said, plenty of constitutional conservatives have huge reservations about going the national emergency route. I do believe it would eventually lead to Dems claiming a national emergency on global warming in order to force “green new deal” initiatives.

    I’d rather Trump just hold his ground. He’s already willing to sign a bill with everything the Dems have put in it, just add the wall funding. And they said no.

    He made a good address despite HK being upset he didn’t go off the cuff and say something silly. He made good points and left the MSM with nothing. The Dem response was an embarrassment because they had nothing to argue against.

    Meanwhile CNN is sending their best NPC to the border where he is doing a fine job of showing how well the wall works and San Diego local news is tweeting about how CNN called them wanting a wall story but then dropping it when they found out it was working very well.

    No. I was actually hoping he'd go extemporaneously off the cuff and look presidential.

    In my fantasy world I could imagine Trump having taken an hour of out time this past week.
    Here is my abbreviated fantasy script for his recent Oval Office address:

    My fellow Americans, I am Donald Trump. Ted Cruz is introducing a bill on my behalf.
    I want approval for 3 billion dollars for improvements to the US/Mexico physical barrier.
    ---insert Corp of Engineers with powerpoint showing when/where/what will de done to improve the existing wall.

    I am asking congress for 2 billion dollars to hire more border control personnel.
    ---insert Border Patrol chief with presentation showing where expanded manpower will be deployed.

    I am asking congress to allocate an additional 3 billion dollars to develop the most effective and advanced computer technology for border command, control, security and safety that the world has ever known.
    ---insert Apple Geek with cloud based wall-surveillance iPhone app.

    Finally I want congress to make an additional one billion dollars available to the Border Control leadership to use as they see fit. They are the experts. They know where they need the resources.
    ---insert pictures of open Smithsonian doors and clean Yellowstone toilets and legions of proud TSA agents.

    Thank you and God bless you.
    I'm Donald Trump and I approve this message.


    Pelosi and Schumer would turn to two pillars of salt and be unable to reply.

    Both houses of congress would pass Mr. Cruz' legislation.

    My real underlying point YG....
    Had Mr. Trump acted as a leader acts and presented a compromise he'd have secured a more favorable place in the class of 2059 history books.

    It's not too late Mr. Trump. Please?

    This pains me to say it, but I agree with you.

    My apologies, I won’t do it again.

    SORRY but you are 100% WRONG. - IF President Trump gives an inch to the HATEFUL, BIGOTED, LEFTIST MORONS of the DIMocRATS Party the DIMs will NOT do anything except falsely accuse him of RACISM, being MEAN-SPIRITED & DISHONEST.

    You & every other "Pollyanna" here needs to figure out that the Congressional DIMocRATS are interested in just TWO things: MORE MONEY & WINNING in 2020.
    Furthermore, IF the POTUS suggested a "compromise" like that, the so-called "mainstream media" would simply do more hateful, nasty & FALSE attacks on the POTUS.

    The simple TRUTH is that the LEFTISTS are ANTI-AMERICAN SOCIALISTS & are quite willing to sell us all out to get their LEFTIST agenda passed.

    Trump has already offered compromises and they wouldn’t accept them.

    His compromise since this has started is that as long as the budget has the wall funding, he will sign it. That’s a hell of a deal for what amounts to 11 or so minutes worth of federal funding.

    The Dems don’t care. They only know “orange man bad”. Just doing what they were programmed to do.

    And they looked like idiots responding to Trump after his Oval Office address. Might not have been as tough and “Trumpy” as some would like, but the MSM and the Dems had nothing to bash him with. It was a smart play.
