Trump might be a blowhard twat, but he has all the right people pissed off.



You nailed it on Romney, what a douche,

Why? Is it bc he isn't lock step with Trump? Seems to me that anyone that has an opinion different than Trump, you know someone that can think for them selves is a "loser" or anti-'Merica.

Now, if we were to go to "instant runoff" voting I might. But the truth is that voting for someone outside of the two major Party candidates in a Presidential election in today's world is wasting your vote.

Not that votes matter that much anyway for people in most States given the Electoral College system.


I could not in good conscious vote Dem or Rep in the last election. Have to see who the candidates are before I say I'm voting Dem or Rep or I can write-in a vote again. It's not wasted, it's my vote and I'm not voting for POS like Clinton or Trump.

Nothing to do with that, he carpetbagged his way to Utah, he really is the 3rd Mass. Senator, his jealousy of Trump is amazing, he lost in 2012 when that was a gimme because he was a wimpy douche, most importantly he is from a political dynasty and never did an honest days work in his life.

And Trump has? :lol:

And I wouldn't say he's from a political dynasty. Does 1 family member make it a dynasty?

So Amash votes with almost all Republicans and a good chunk of Donks to table, and thus kill, Al Green’s impeachment resolution, after he bloviates about how the Mueller report proves that Trump should be impeached.

What a drama queen. :roll:

Al Green's impeachment wasn't the right one. I agree with him, the Conks, and a good chunk of Donks. :thumb:

He did vote to hold Barr and Ross in contempt yesterday, though. :clap:

Why, pray tell? You want Trump impeached. Given that, what about Green’s resolution made it objectionable?

And you’ve lost the quote function. Why? Bone laziness?

Because I think obstruction of justice is a much more clear-cut impeachable offense than making racist statements. Pretty clearly Amash agrees. You're just looking to pick a nit. Kinda like complaining about me not using the quote function to reply to a post directly above. wgaf, grump?

Splitting hairs, you bone-lazy Donk. Doesn’t matter that the resolution was functionally illiterate. It got more Donk votes than the last pre-tweet version.

I don't think they've introduced one for obstruction of justice or any clearly impeachable crimes. Though, I could be wrong.

Al Green's impeachment crusade is ill guided, imo. Impeachment for the sake of impeachment won't work. That isn't splitting hairs. :thumb:

Glad you agree with that, young Skywalker.

Well, you should have asked, "Does 2 family members make it a dynasty?"
