    A whiny lib...er republican offers to assist in drafting impeachment

    documents:

    As Charles P. Pierce said in Esquire last week, “I swear, it's like we elected the Clampetts, if the Clampetts were grifters.”
    A president of the United States, on the official POTUS Twitter feed, assails a department store for dropping his daughter’s merchandise. On the same day, the Pentagon is looking to rent space in the Trump Tower. Trump’s son travels to Uganda to make a Trump business deal. And, of course, foreign diplomats will stay at the Trump Hotel. The cash comes marching in.
    The phony legalisms Trump has said he used to “separate” himself from his businesses – though he still owns them and his sons are running them – will be cited to make this all acceptable. Horsefeathers. No ethical expert could say with a straight face that this is not a classic conflict of interest.
    In any time except our post-factual era, no office holder, much less the president, could get away with any one of the dozens of dazzlingly illegal things Trump has already done. They would forfeit office immediately.
    The leader of the band of Mad Hatters occupying the White House has already insulted allied world leaders, issued illegal and badly written orders, impugned a “so-called” judge appointed by his own party, and appointed the least-qualified cabinet ever. The first secretary of state was Thomas Jefferson. Trump appointed a big-oil executive with close ties to Russia. The first treasury secretary was Alexander Hamilton. Trump appointed a former Goldman Sachs exec who got rich foreclosing on homeowners. The national security advisor lasted 24 days.
    And all that’s just at the time I write this. Who knows what happens next. Each new day is a new nightmare. We are still trying to digest one breathtaking assault on America when another is signed, issued, or Tweeted. All this amid constant lies. Constant. Lies.
    I am a lifelong Republican. I voted for every Republican presidential candidate from 1968 to 2004. But I have watched what once was a sane, center-right party go off the rails, first to the extreme right, then to wherever Trump is, which is in another universe.
    It’s tough, but we must end this dangerous presidency. Trump must be impeached and removed with all haste. But only Congress can initiate the process.


    Our congressman, Steve Chabot, has been busy defending Trump from the media, which is simply reporting Trump’s machinations. It’s time for him to man-up and start drafting the articles of impeachment. As I remember, he did it for Clinton for far less than Trump has already done.
    After the election, many hoped that Trump would “grow up” into the job – that he couldn’t possibly be as bad as some thought. Well, it’s gone the other way. The bully has become a more entitled bully. Anyone disagreeing is attacked. Policy is announced in illiterate tweets.
    Basic American values – free speech, the rule of law, separation of powers, even common decency – are unknown in this White House. We now have a president who has no concept of separation of powers, or why we have three branches of government. If he knew anything about the Constitution, he would know the framers envisioned just the situation we have now – a would-be dictator. They provided checks and balances – such as an independent judiciary to protect us from presidential tyranny.
    Enabling a bully is always a mistake. As soon as the Tweet on Nordstrom’s came out, I said that the Republicans would defend the indefensible, and their talking point would be “a father supporting his daughter.” It wasn’t an hour later that Rep Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told CNN it “didn’t bother him.” But even Chaffetz had to choke when Kellyanne Conway urged people to buy Ivanka Trump’s shoes.
    All the above bothers me and should appall all Americans. We must admit we have elected a president who has immediately proved himself to be a grifter, a pathological liar, a mean-spirited bully and dangerous to American values. This not-ready-for-prime-time show is too dangerous to continue. America is at stake.
    If you need help drafting those articles of impeachment, Steve, I am available.

    Damn near everybody in DC is "a grifter" of some sort. How many non-millionaires are there in Congress? I suspect very very few especially among long time members. Not all Republicans like Trump for sure. There seems to be a growing division in the GOP about the best way to maintain crapitalism.

    Why do so many people think that Pence will be a better president?

    Trump stirred up trouble to get elected and he is unwilling to stop doing that now that he is in office. Pence doesn't have that issue. I personally would rather have Trump as president for this reason. Trump is better than a normal Republican or a golf course Democrat for this reason.

    He would be better for republicans. Trump is doing a good job of helping democrats.

    I think Pence would be terrible, but not in the same way Trump is terrible. Pence wouldn't be so reckless, and therefore would be better for the country as a whole.

    Most of the people that believe Pence would be better... are only saying as much, because they believe it strikes a cord of reason. Put another way, these are the people that you would hear say...

    "GWB wasn't this bad", or... "At least Regan wasn't x/y/z..."

    To them, saying things like this gives the impression that they are reasonable... and that Trump is really that bad. But in reality... it is always this way -- there is no better option, if not Hillary.

    It's been said multiple times on this site, but it bears repeating again and again until some of you get it.

    Establishment politicians on BOTH sides of the aisle hate Trump. An Establishment Republican writes an op-ed criticizing Trump. In other news, dog bites man.

    They won't stop until they run him out of town.

    Problem for them is, Trump isn't afraid to bite.

    People who are party oriented......or agenda oriented, will never understand the appeal that Trump has with those who elected him.

    He was sent to Washington to break up the way things have been done that the majority of Americans are absolutely sick of. This goes for establishment Republicans as well as Democrats....liberals, progressives, moderates and RINOs......all who have "gone along" in Washington for decades to primarily take care of themselves.

    Naturally, he is going to have strong opposition from those that want to keep the status quo.....but this unhinged and lunatic inspired talk of impeachment before a President even has his entire team put in place is absolute madness and a sure sign of desperation.

    As we were told so often in early 2009......"Elections have consequences."

    They most certainly do......and it's only just getting started.
