Re: Best President Ever

First president in Gallup’s history to never achieve 50% approval rating. Lowest aggregate approval rating in history by 4 points. https://news.gallup.com/poll/328637/last-trump-job-approval-average-record-low.aspx Shocker! I believe the Gallup Poll started around FDR's time. Good thing for Buchana...

Re: Best President Ever

Ok I'll go ahead and do it this time: A partial list of Trump's long list of accomplishments. Domestic 1. Judicial appointments (3 SCOTUS judges + NUMEROUS Circuit). That's an accomplishment? So, you accomplished something because Mitch McConnell held a spot open for you then two other Justices died...

Obviously, he's taking over under far more difficult circumstances than Trump took over under.

Worst President Ever

At least to this point. That's my prediction on how historians will rank Donald Trump both in the near future and 100 years from now through the lens of elapsed time. If there was any doubt about that it was erased by what happened over the past few months. History will report that there was not an ...

Re: The Republican Base

The scales have fallen from my eyes over the past 5 years. The problem we have in this country is that the Republican base is largely composed of the kind of people that allowed for things like Hitler and Mussolini consolidating power in the 20th century. We have learned that the Republican base is...

Re: Trump Impeachment Part Duex

Now Trump can, for the first time, say he really accomplished something unprecedented: He has been impeached twice.

Otherwise, taking a shot is completely justified. We need to create a situation in which this guy can never run from President again. The Democrats started the process for that.

I sure hope that, at this point, there is NOBODY out there who thinks that America has been anything but diminished since Trump took office in 2017.
