It has shaken me that we stand at the brink of removing a President — not because of a popular groundswell to remove him and not because of the magnitude of the wrongs he’s committed — but because conditions in America has made it possible for a small group of people who hate the president and hate his policies to very cleverly and very doggedly exploit the institutions of freedom that we hold dear and almost succeed in undoing him.

If you had asked me one year ago if people like this with such obvious political motives could use our courts, play the media and tantalize the legislative branch to achieve their ends of bringing down the President, I would have said “not a chance — that doesn’t happen in America.”

Maybe we’re seeking an impossible duality. We demand, as we should, that our elected leaders be held to the highest standard. And then we shine the brightest light imaginable to expose those who don’t measure up.

t seems we have lost the ability to forcefully advocate for our position without trying to criminalize or at least dishonor our adversaries — often over matters having nothing to do with the public trust. And it is hurting the country; it is marginalizing and polarizing the Congress.

The ledger is pretty much even between the two parties, but it has become more partisan and bitter. It is reminiscent of the Oresteia, a trilogy of ancient Greek plays by Aeschylus.

if the cycle of political recrimination and scandalizing continues, the American people will become more alienated and cynical and shaken by the political process and they, too, will lose faith in the great instrument the Founding Fathers have given us.

Let us shake hands and say we are now going to forego bringing down people for political gain. Let us understand that our leaders have foibles, and though we must be held to a higher standard, let us not make it a sport to expose those weaknesses.

hint: he is a shitbag of epic proportions.

    1999 in reference to Pedo Bill’s impeachment.

    “Shitbag” is entirely too nice a term for this worthless cup of pond scum.

  2. “hint: he is a shitbag of epic proportions.”

    Oh, come on, you need to give us a little more than THAT! You have just described the ENTIRE Democrat party, and before someone points out the pronoun “he”, just remember THAT means NOTHING when talking to Democrats, EITHER.

    …It’s ALSO a work of extreme hypocrisy, so again, doesn’t narrow the field AT ALL. It actually EXPANDS it, as there’s quite a few “REPUBLICANS” that are ” shitbag(s) of epic proportions”, AND hypocrites, so no help THERE.

    …I would guess that it’s someone who would have been around for the Clinton impeachment, but again, that really doesn’t prune too much off. These guys don’t even seem to go home for LUNCH, let alone sit their asses down after a few years and let someone who hasn’t fucked up lately run the Country instead. No help there, either.

    The speech has a lot of big words and invokes ancient cultures, so it was probably written by a staffer and read from cue cards or a teleprompter. Again, could be ANYONE, unless this is a transcription instead of a written speech, in which case the lack of “uuuuhhhh”s does help rule out ONE guy.

    Can you give me one more hint? Has this person ever, successfully OR unsuccessfully, run for President? On either side? That could narrow it a LITTLE…

  5. crazy sanfran nan keeps singing Trump’s impeached for life .. like it’s a terminal illness that he’ll never recover from.
    I would wager those that support PDT don’t give a demonRats ass about her “impeached for life” label.
    Only libtards label people to hide their own feckless and immoral incompetence.

  6. Is it possible for John Roberts to, after hearing the prosecution, declare something like a mistrial and an expungement of the whole mess?
    Nancy would have a heart attack.
