What kind of person would not want him to succeed??
Every rational person who's opposed to his policies, of course.
If you took your car to a mechanic because it was idling poorly
and he told you the solution was to pour sand in the engine,
would you want him to succeed with his solution?

I take the point..... -)
When I saw "Succeed" I was thinking more in terms of the good of the
country in general: i.e. not crashing the economy again, not inciting
civil strife.... and so-forth..... Not in terms of succeeding with his
personal agenda (whatever that is... his statements seem to change
But I still think there was something to be said for not attacking him

He's also essentially failed on his immigration BS plan. He lied to
voters, told them he was going to deport all 11 mil illegals, a bunch
of mostly rapists, drug runners. He was going to round up all of them
in just a year or two, no ifs, ands, or buts. But now he says that
the vast majority of them are "good people" who we have to "treat fairly"
and there will be no deportation of most of them, their status is open.
So, by his own hand, he's already failed at one of his signature and most
