I voted for him and full well expect him to renege on much, if not most, of what he said. The guy is a liberal, but he's not an ideologue. Both conservatives and liberals will be able to convince him of some of their ideas. Pitch it to him and, if it makes sense and looks like it will work, he'll buy it. I think this could be grand! Politics is supposed to be about compromise, not stomping on the face of your opponent.

I, too, hope that he sheds the campaign persona. But, guess what? It actually *is* ok to call people names and mock people....in the legal world. Pulling that crap stands a lot more for me than the illegal actions of his opponent stood for me. Both were lousy candidates. He was mean and nasty. She was entitled, arrogant, and (the deal breaker), criminal. She presents nicely, but scratch the surface and you'll see all the nastiness that Trump is not afraid to let shine. Everyone had to pick their poison and for some to judge/hate others, take it so personally, get so hysterical is ridiculous.

If people are worried that their rights will be rolled back and the government is now going to come after them, they should ask themselves how concerned they were for fellow Americans whose rights *were* rolled back and the government *did* come after them. Note their own hypocrisy. The DoJ, EPA, and IRS were all used to go after "enemies" and the country just shrugged. Now, it's the limited govt people who are just shrugging at your fears. Where were the safety pins in support of those actual victims?

(You might want to look up "did trump really mock a disabled man?" and see some background on it. Doesn't suddenly make him a wonderful guy, but it's actually an unfair portrayal that people keep claiming as accurate.)
