without a Senate majority.

Yeah, because that has worked SOOO well for this country the past 8 years.

Trust me, Paul Ryan, should he survive as Speaker in a Republican Congress, will be announcing the day after the election the very pledge that Mitch McConnel made the day after Obama's election...that they will block every single thing President Hillary Clinton will try to bring forward to benefit this country and the citizens living therein.

And he and they will most certainly carry through on that.

Why has no on stepped forward to sue them for dereliction of duty? For Treason? Checks and balances are one thing. Our political process is intentionally somewhat adversarial, but to deny the will of the people is surely something we cannot continue to let our government get away with.

Well, it's a lead pipe cinch who will be head of the FBI under President Trump...Comey has done his best to insure he still has that job in a week or so.

What. An. Asshole.

46633. arkymalarky - 10/29/2016 8:43:05 PM

What's pissing me off royally is that the networks, especially cable networks, are giving Trump a free platform to spew lies and just let him say anything without even bothering to correct it. They should not be putting him on the air unfiltered when I know he's lying. Comey should be fired. How pathetically partisan and irresponsible.

When Hillary goes into office, some of this C
stuff will change automatically because the Republican party is imploding. Some of it will change over the next few years, because the average age of these people is well above 60.

46635. Ms. No - 10/31/2016 3:19:53 AM

The shitty thing is, when he gets fired he'll say it's because he stood up to "Crooked Hillary," not because he violated the responsibilities and misused the power of his office.

And I'm in total agreement with you on the media, Arky. FOX News was legitimized by the mainstream media when they should have laughed it out of existence from the get-go. You can be fair and balanced without giving lunatics a platform to spread lies and sow dissent. In fact, I would argue that by giving a pass to lunatics, the media is being dangerously unbalanced.

Jan. 20th, 2017: Hillary is inaugurated.
Jan. 21st, 2017: The Congressional Repubs start impeachment hearings.

Perhaps we'll have a period of relative calm and civility between Nov. 9th 2016 and Jan. 20th 2017, but probably not.

Hey....the cable media have been giving Trump free access ALL ALONG...they have cut away from their regular programming every single DAY and have done so even in prime time evening shows...and I am talking MSNBC which is NOT like FOX News...just the opposite, in fact.

This could be looked on as giving voice to a lunatic so watchers can SEE how insane he is....or it can be seen as something else.

46638. Ms. No - 11/4/2016 1:19:59 AM

I'm very concerned about the Secret Service detail if Hillary becomes our next president.

How exactly is she (or the nation for that matter) supposed to trust her life to a division of the FBI at this point? Sure, no agent wants to be known as the one who lost a sitting president, but with the level of hostility toward Clinton I wouldn't be surprised if there was one who was willing to fall on his sword for "the good of the nation."

And Comey has another 7 years in office.

Clinton has declined to comment on whether or not she would ask for his resignation should she be elected, but the only reason I can think of for NOT demanding it is the wish not to be accused of retaliating against him, which would be a ridiculous wish. People who would accuse her of such have already shown they don't care about the facts and couldn't be convinced of her integrity if Jesus Christ himself came down and sponsored her.

Never mind that when you abuse the powers of your office you OUGHT to be removed regardless of the popularity or lack thereof of the victim of the abuse. Although, ultimately, it wasn't an abuse of Hillary Clinton, it was an abuse of the American people and our Democratic process.

Sorry - know that was disjointed as hell, but I'm in a rush and wanted to get my thoughts out quickly.

46639. arkymalarky - 11/4/2016 1:55:58 AM

Reminded of how wretched cellardoor thought Andrew Sullivan was. I totally agree.

46640. arkymalarky - 11/4/2016 1:57:25 AM

And Trump and fox are running with what Comey said spinning lies out of control like a cat with a ball of yarn.

46641. arkymalarky - 11/4/2016 1:58:11 AM

If he had a scintilla of Integrity he would at least try to clarify what he said seeing that people are spinning lies out of it.

46642. Trillium - 11/4/2016 3:19:48 PM

Comey, Clinton in their own words

OMG, do not be drinking coffee when you read this...

Melania Trump Says She’ll Fight Cyber-Bullying as First Lady

Does she live with her husband???

Pepe, you really need to look at the dates on the article as you link.

46645. vonKreedon - 11/4/2016 8:26:28 PM

Cos - The SS is part of Homeland Security, not Justice and so not the FBI.

46646. judithathome - 11/4/2016 8:49:27 PM

Hey, Andrew Sullivan, now that he is dying, has sounded more realistic in his assessment of this run for President...I've heard him say he thinks Trump might win but only because he thinks the American public has gone insane.

He is NOT a fan of Trump...he is condemning the fools who are supporting this idiot.

46647. arkymalarky - 11/4/2016 10:18:06 PM

Attitudes like his are not helpful. And he's got an abnormal dislike of the Clintons which he is constitutionally incapable of hiding.

Hillary's been ahead the whole time. Yes, she may lose, but that is always a risk in this environment. Democrats need to be strong and positive and confident. Projecting anything else feeds a loser's mentality, which is deadly in campaigns. I'm making calls to newly registered voters through Monday night. You do everything you can to make positive things hapoen then deal with it if they don't, but despairing before you're defeated is pointless. Sullivan going on as a talking head with that attitude is helping trump and he should know that.

I call my 85 year old dad and have him talk me down every once in awhile, and the only time he's been concerned about the result was after she had pneumonia and her poll numbers dropped significantly. I'll take my dad's view over Sullivan's any day of the week.

46648. wabbit - 11/5/2016 3:05:04 PM

Your dad rules!

46649. arkymalarky - 11/5/2016 3:34:43 PM

Awwww! I will tell him you said so!
