RUSH: On the morning of November 8th – one year ago – liberals were giddy with anticipation. Everything pointed toward victory. The polls and the Big Data showed Hillary Clinton winning in a big landslide.
The day began with predictions that Trump’s presidential aspirations were doomed. His chances of reaching the Oval Office were said to be between seven and 29 percent.
In addition to breaking the so-called glass-ceiling, Hillary Clinton’s election meant Barack Obama’s legacy was safe. President Hillary would keep her promise to protect it. Yes, the morning of November 8th – one year ago – was a good one for liberal Democrats.
On the evening of November 8th – one year ago – there was an air of happy confidence throughout the Drive-By Media. As the polls began to close it was obvious the stories were already written; the coverage had been mapped out in advance.
Media liberals were thrilled. Their unrelenting pounding of Donald Trump was about to pay off. Some establishment Republicans were also giddy. The Never Trumpers, their hatred of the outsider would be vindicated, and even if it meant an election loss, their hold on the party would remain intact.
At 2:40 a.m. the morning of November 9th – one year ago – it was all over. The giddiness collapsed into waves of despondency, tears, gloom, and anger. A year later the fury remains.
The rest of the country, however, was celebrating. A year later, we still are. Thank you, Russians.
