But then I realized, if the GOP impeaches a GOP president, it bites a serious hole in the GOP canoe.

The pendulum is gonna swing back the other way in '18 and '20. I can feel it, Dave. :blink:
If they impeach, they can try plausible deniability. They can claim they voted for impeachment and It will work for some. If they don't impeach, the losses could be bigger. Every opponent will tie them to Trump's train tracks.

It's a :pickle:

It isn't "charisma" it's a well-honed use of word weaseling and open ended rhetoric where the listener fills in the blank for themselves.

Exactly why I put the word in quotes. Pence could not have pulled it off though. IMO.

Refugee immigrants. Cuz people who have been thru hell should be shunned.

My first thought when I saw this earlier today was the Arab Countries should unify and expel all Americans.

Trump administration tells EPA to cut climate page from website: sources

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-t ... ce=Twitter
U.S. President Donald Trump's administration has instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to remove the climate change page from its website, two agency employees told Reuters, the latest move by the newly minted leadership to erase ex-President Barack Obama's climate change initiatives.

The employees were notified by EPA officials on Tuesday that the administration had instructed EPA's communications team to remove the website's climate change page, which contains links to scientific global warming research, as well as detailed data on emissions. The page could go down as early as Wednesday, the sources said.

"If the website goes dark, years of work we have done on climate change will disappear," one of the EPA staffers told Reuters, who added some employees were scrambling to save some of the information housed on the website, or convince the Trump administration to preserve parts of it.

The sources asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media

Scientists are gathering to march on Washington. I hope they deliver a strong message to Trump and Congress. There should be a huge outcry on this attempt to silence science. We don't need a return to the Dark Ages. I hope they are preserving all of their work.
