Re: President Trump

I saw it as disbelief of the condescending variety that she of all people was given a Nobel Prize. As in, “You???” With one of those archetypal looks of arrogant stupidity on his evil face.

Re: President Trump

The press has been enabling this stuff since day 1. They are afraid to ask followups, like what specifically she said because if they embarrass him, they probably lose their access. :yeah: Their failure is made infinitely worse by the fact that they refuse to factor in their own complicity in the r...

Re: Resolution of Inquiry Re Impeachment; Commission to Declare President Incapacitated Re 25th Amendment

When there's a solid case of obstruction of justice, they might seriously consider impeaching Trump. That's what brought Nixon down. Nixon was using the CIA. Trump is using the FBI, but the FBI is controlled by his buddy Barr. When the completely uncensored Mueller report is released, there might b...

Re: Resolution of Inquiry Re Impeachment; Commission to Declare President Incapacitated Re 25th Amendment

We need a poll. Do we have one? Or a flow chart. A way to keep track. It's getting hard to remember who favors an impeachment inquiry before snow flies and who doesn't. I'm thinking that might lead to some good debate as opposed to the stream of "Impeachment will doom us in 2020" and "No impeachment...

Re: All the President's Lies

There's a certain threshold where he knows he needs to walk something back to keep the little bit of soft support he needs. Or Mitch tells him he's not sure how the vote would go in an impeachment trial. He'll walk it back, but he'll do such a shitty job of it that the deplorables see it as a wink ...

Somehow I missed it that Joe is not in favor of either a public option or Medicare for all. Today he was explaining how bad they are. So long, Joe, and thanks for all the fish.

Stone is clever. He'll figure out some way to violate the order and will find himself back before the judge. He desperately wants to be jailed.

Re: Issues 2020: Can a president be too old?

I think I'm echoing Addie when I say that I don't care about Biden's physical age one iota. I value his experience, his kindness, and his willingness to speak. But his political framework and _way_ of speaking are to me outmoded. His way of communicating IMO pretty much doesn't work any more. It is ...
