The Democrat Party still cannot accept the results of the 2016 elections, and to add to their frustration is the Mueller report, which clears the Trump campaign and President Trump of all allegations of collusion with the Russians. The report also fails to make a case for obstruction of justice.

Two and a half years after the elections, the Democrats continue to waste time and money trying to find something, anything, to beat up Trump with but it remains elusive to them.

Even those who would rather have their cocker spaniel in the Oval Office are signaling that their patience has run out with the Democrats, as evidenced by the ratings free fall over at CNN. The cable news network's ratings for its evening lineup, according to Neilsen, is averaging just over 700,000 viewers, about a third of the viewership for the Fox News lineup.

Most rational thinking people, Trumpers or otherwise, understand that the next election is a year away and believe that the ballot box is the best place to sort all of this out. But not the Democrat leadership, which has resisted opportunity after opportunity to get the discussion back to issues the American people are focused on such as health care, immigration, and the economy.

The histrionics and drama that play out daily inside the beltway are little more than entertainment to the average American who is worried about paying for college tuition for the kids or how to provide care for their aging parents. But this act is getting old, tired and boring and people are ready for real action.

The American people need to send a strong signal to the folks in Washington that they have had enough of these foolish games. It's time they get down to the people's business, or pack their bags and get the hell out of there.
