During the presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton said, “When they go low, we go high.” This was coming from a person who illegally set up a private computer server, illegally circulated top secret information on it, and most likely set-up the server to conceal illegal pay-for-play activities providing millions to the Clinton Foundation. What we learn from the Clinton statement is that they don’t go high, but what the Democrats are actually doing is the opposite of what they say they are doing — they are going low.

The latest Democratic bit of nastiness accused President Trump of rough, unseemly language. There was a meeting of both Democrats, Republicans, and Trump with the goal of improving immigration policy. During this meeting, Trump, according to several people in the meeting (several others said they didn’t hear Trump say anything wrong), used a few sentences of crude language.

What does the Democratic Senator Dick Durbin do the minute he leaves the meeting? He tells the world what he claims Trump said! Forget about the policy and goal and everything else that might have gone on in the meeting. Durbin seized the opportunity to broadcast to the world a negative smear of Trump.

What should we take away from this?

First, the Democrats will use every single flaw and personal matter to attack Republicans — the Democrats are cheap-shot artists. Democrats will put real problems on the back burner if there is an opportunity to damage a Republican opponent.

Two, this is a classic example of how nasty the climate in Congress has become. The Democrats are on alert for every word (or even words unsaid) voiced by Republicans that may be used to damage them.

Three, what are the chances now of having cooperative meetings between the two parties when the Republicans know that anything said in the room will be quickly reported, misreported, and used against Republicans?

Four, Dick Durbin, if anyone is watching him closely, will discover when he gives an interview, he is capable of reversing the facts and the truth on issues and political activities.

So this Democratic Party that closed their eyes and allowed Obama to permit massive drugs to come over the southern border, turned the IRS, the FBI, and the Justice Department — institutions that are supposed to be above politics — into political attack organizations for the Democrats, knowingly allowed the bureaucratic organizations intended to serve citizens to be used against them, and for good measure, the Democrats ignored Bill Clinton’s personal morality issues, such as seducing an intern in the oval office — these Democrats are now offended to the high heavens by some crude language! Give me a break.

What is an American citizen to do: The choice is between a sometimes rough speaking, forceful president, who is getting the job done, versus some unethical, no scruples, Democratic politicians, who are unfocused on solving problems and with a recent record of allowing massive messes of dishonesty to go on under their noses. It is not a difficult choice. America needs to get the problems solved and ignore the Democrats who specialize in personal assassination.
