At a post at EPJ, IT'S DONE: Mitch McConnell Surrenders, these comments appeared:
First, I never made the claim that a Hillary Clinton presidency with a Republican congress was going to be a panacea that would result in good government. I have consistently said that either a Clinton or Trump administration would be horrific. Let me make myself clear: A Clinton or Trump administration would be horrific. I have formed: Libertarians Against Clinton, Trump, Johnson and Stein. Got it?
I am not looking forward to the new presidency whether it is Clinton or Trump regardless of the make-up of the Congress. That said, there is a slight advantage to having a Congress that is of the opposite party to that of the President. Emphasis on slight. This is not because I expect a major blockage of spending that is desired by the major backroom insiders. Those serious insiders control both parties. They are non-partisan. The big budgets will continue.
However, there is something of a second-tier battle between the Republicans and Democrats. They both want ultimate power and want it difficult for the other party to gain power or to look good. They will throw sand in the works of the opposing party when it doesn't interfere with the desires of the major behind-the-scenes insiders. This isn't much at all, but it is better than the president and Congress all being controlled by one party.
Media scrutiny has nothing to do with this. No one pays attention to MSM anymore.
If Hillary is elected, Trump supporters are not going to sudden;y start taking the news from the likes of CNN and NBC as gospel. To think otherwise is a total failure to understand what is going on in the country.
