It shows Pelosi is a professional, representing her office, and Trump is representing himself (not his office) in turn.

 

He will be putting his damaged vanity ahead of the nation’s best interest when it comes to working with the House.

 

You clearly missed Nancy being a "professional" and losing her shit tearing up the speech in an unhinged show for the cameras. She, along with the entire Democratic Party have been broken this past week.

She shouldn’t have and Trump needs to lead here as President but he can’t bring himself to do so.  I gather her reaction was driven by his escalation.  He is a child.

Both sides are unprofessional, and both sides lie.  Dems can't win if they push the status quo.  Trump is just going to lie his way to a 2nd term, just like he does in his marriages. 

 

People in Iowa are saying why is Biden running?  They want Buttageig and Sanders.  These are the guys that can beat Trump...Biden is Trump lite and not much better.  Those two as President and Vice-President would make for a winning ticket...Buttageig and Sanders!  Cheers!

Surprisingly, Van Jones on CNN got his comments dead on...Trump is going after the black vote, and will sacrifice the Latinos to get his 2nd term.  He fed his base enough "red meat", while pointing out the failures of the Democrats when it comes to the black population.  Democrats for the most part cannot beat him at his own game.  And the man will ride along on what he has accomplished in his 1st term, while the Democrats have fumbled everything...Mueller investigation, impeachment, passing bills...keeps going.  Cheers!

While I'd love to agree(and in a vacuum, do agree with Erics comments), this is basically war now. Its not good for the country, but its where all these politicians have led us. And it started well before Trump.

 

The whole party is furious right now. Identity politics changed the game forever in their favor. And then this big burnt orange cartoon comes along and ruins it all for them. Everything they try to do to him just makes him stronger and more popular and they dont know what to do. Trump is a real life Hydra. The past several days have been an unmitigated disaster and could very well be the end of the democratic party.

Clinton got more votes than Trump, millions more votes, and she had her share of baggage.

 

Do you guys think her supporters will move over to Trump?  I think he should be worried.  He has been impeached just as a departing John Kelly warned him he would if he surrounded himself with yes men.

I think this is how Pelosi will be remembered for eternity.

 

Her time came & went a long time ago.  She is caved in to the radical wing of her party.  She tried to undo an election.  She is going to preside over the collapse of her party.

 

Here is what is really so crazy & pathetic though...

 

Trump says & does a lot of "questionable" stuff.  A competent politician and party should have been able to out maneuver Trump.  A competent politician and party should have been able to put together a compelling choice & plan to President Trump.  They didn't.  A competent competing political party should have been able to calm things down, bring the country together...the Dems didn't, they doubled, triple, quadrupled down on hate & division.  They have missed their chance, so sad.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is awarded to one of the most divisive political personalities in America, Rush Limbaugh.

 

Well Obama got the Nobel Peace prize the same year he became president (seriously, what did he accomplish in a few months to deserve it?). He's one of the most divisive presidents we've ever had. His policies led to Trump. Don't think I'm an Obama hater. I voted for him in 2008.

He dropped dropped a lot of bombs. Let's not forget his wife recently getting a Grammy....for reading her husbands books....

 

@Ericopoly, I do find it ridiculous that RL got that award.

 

Awards don't mean anything anymore. Didn't Greta Thunberg get nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize?

The most disgusting and unacceptable part from last night was Pelosi and her radicals in white refusing to applause regular Americans doing their day job or ICE government employees. I hope that this won't get lost.

 

Moreover, that complete lack of respect demonstrated with them gesturing with what appeared like Hitler salute should not be forgotten either.

 

Parsad can say all he wants but, NEVER has an opposing party demonstrated so little respect for a duly elected official and party in the U.S. They are truly radicals and closing in by the day on Nazis trying to overtake the Reichstagg.

Don't worry about Greta, she doesn't have the bodycount to get the Nobel Peace Prize.  Obama slaughtered 10s of thousands of people, I don't think she's killed anyone.  Based on Obama's example Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize way more.  Just like Obama, he campaigned on peace then became mass-murdering war criminal.  It's just insane that he hasn't been nominated yet.

I don't listen to Limbaugh but I don't see why he is any less ugh..."deserving" than say Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, etc. Look at the list of the folks Obama gave it to. It's really quite disgusting. A ton of celebrities (only 1 in the military and 4 in medicine, none for history, 1 for education). He even had 2 in dance. Seriously????

 

Speaking of Streep:

This Republican party cannot accept responsibility for what it is doing.  When called out, someone just cites a Democrat previously doing something that you admit you hate, and then uses it to justify what the Republicans are doing today.  Since your party is now doing it, stop faulting whichever party you claimed did it before.  If you didn't like it, don't repeat it.

 

You need a leader, not these excuse makers who just act like children saying "well little Johnny did it and he got away with it"..  When the country is deeply divided, it is the President's job to unite it.  Last night this President used the night historically set aside for that purpose as a campaign rally and calls the other side of the country "socialists", which to me looks like he is not taking his job of uniting the country seriously.

How do you unite with a party that has been demanding your impeachment since before you were sworn into office?

 

The Democratic Party has been committed to impeaching Trump before he did a darn thing.

 

Why????

 

I'll tell you why - because they will NOT admit the failings of their own party. They will NOT accept responsibility for losing the election.

The easy way out for the Democratic Party was to say - Trump and the Russians stole the election, therefore he is an illegitimate President.

 

You don't unite with a party of liars and frauds and no accountability. 

 

Until the Democratic Party fixes ITSELF for the good of the Party AND the country - there will be nothing but divisiveness.

I am not a Democrat and I am not a Republican, but it is clear that Trump abused his power and the only sanction for that is impeachment. 

 

It is completely irrelevant if House Democrats were watching Trump's every step since the election -- it is their Constitutional duty to do so and it is clear that the Republicans are putting their own party above their duty of their office.

Lol! Uniting the country!!!

 

Trump named all kinds of people who benefited from his policies such as black, woman, handicapped, you name it and Pelosi and Ericopoly can't even recognize how good and unifying that is. They always get back to some irrelevant, fuzzy issue on how to get rid of the man.

 

They prefer to push for policies (socialism and communism) being acclaimed by a minority of radicals that have failed their people 100% of the time throughout history.

 

Would be interesting to know why Ericopoly is no longer a Republican? Apparently that he did become Republican a decade or so ago after having realized he didn't like high taxes in California. Was this a lie?

the problem with people who are smart in or more fields is that they suddenly think they are experts in constitutional law and, specifically, Article II powers.  this is rarely the case

The semblance of civility is gone. we are just a few years away from exchanging blows. we will resemble those countries where they throw chairs & other objects.

 

I recommend everyone to watch Netflix's documentary "Inequality for all". Both parties have precipitated the collapse of middle class and median incomes. R have superior political instincts to assign blame and keep people clueless. This wont end well for all. The Dems are constantly distracted by fringe LGBTQEABCD & other movements.
