Is it a personality flaw? Or just arrogance? Or just that he really doesn't like America? My guess is the latter.

I imagine you were outraged when Reagan negotiated with Iran during his campaign against Carter? No?
Or that a large number of Trump's team worked behind the scenes with Russia? No?

Negotiating with the enemy is only a problem if Democrats do it?

You probably have a lot more faith is Donald Trump's diplomatic skills than I do. Or you just really want to see us in a war with Iran?

I think that's it. Republicans love wars and flag draped coffins! They love dead heroes and pictures of wives and children crying. Between Bolton and Pompeo we'll likely see another war before Trump's misguided administration is finished. Yall been trying to get that one started for years.

But Republicans sure don't love hiring extra VA doctors and hospital staff when disabled veterans start stacking up like cordwood in the hallways.

If they really loved their veterans, they would reverse the Gingrich era rule that makes all VA HEALTH CARE budgeting "discretionary spending".

In a bizarre Republican perversion, all physical plant and maintenance budgeting is NON-discretionary, meaning that the VA is GUARANTEED all the money it needs for remodeling, art on the walls, grand pianos, new walkways and gardens, it's a JOBS program for the construction industry!!

But God forbid they hire a replacement neurologist at a spinal cord injury unit. Long Beach VA went WITHOUT one for THEIR spinal cord injury unit for two years while we watched a brand new foyer and atrium and new walkways being built at a total cost of seven million dollars.

How do you run a SPINAL CORD INJURY UNIT without a staff neurologist?
We had to make do with the neuro in the main hospital, who was already swamped.
