Don't look now, but the Republicans are making their move to pre-empt the Dems in taking out Trump...

Nice dream, but utterly impossible after a reign of terror like Trump's. A Biden presidency is exactly what the Trumpers of the world would dream of if they had to endure any defeat.
A Biden presidency would give them the target rich environment that they desire.
Ready for eleven back to back Hunter Biden investigations?

Nope...sorry Perotista, but in the words of several very prominent strategists, "The Republican Party must be utterly destroyed in order to rebuild it". The appropriate response to Trump is not a spoonful of pablum and reruns of "Friends" on the Turner channel.
Friends is fun to watch but that world no longer exists.
9/11 didn't destroy it, Trump did.

And his little friends are watching the HAL TURNER channel.

Not a lot of depth on the Democratic bench is there? Democrats have been the downtrodden party of losers for so long that it's showing up when one of the good ones is lost.

We had some depth but we've been allowing overweening political correctness to run amuk.
We could have had Al Franken.
But I guess we can't have nice things, because...

I'm not worried about the Republican Party, sending it to the trash heap of history wouldn't bother me one bit. I'd also like to see the Democratic Party join it.

Here's a prediction, I'm sure the Democrats will nominate one of its far leftist. Because of the egotistic oaf we have as president, that leftist wins along with the Democrats gaining the senate. The Democrats will view this as a mandate for them when it was a vote against Trump, not necessarily for them or their nominee. The senate Democrats will completely eliminate the filibuster to rush through their leftist agenda. But they go too far which lets the GOP regain control of the House in 2022.

We seen this play out after the election of 2008 with 2010 happening. Little steps are fine with most Americans, they tend to rebel against gigantic steps. Especially when they aren't listen to. We have a growing number of independents, rising from 30% in 2006 to 40% of the electorate today. Neither party can win elections without attracting independents as Hillary found out. Perhaps pablum is what these folks are looking for in the form of steady, reliable leadership. Not a push to the far right or far left. We'll see as you have my forecast in writing.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

I have to admit, I have been shaken by the events of today, and of the last week. I am now confident that there is no depth that Trump will not plumb in his quest to be the most corrupt President in US (and most of the world's) history. It's like he is trying to push every button he can in the quest for impeachment - emoluments, self-dealing, lying, politicizing foreign policy, giving Putin every advantage he can, betraying every ally - and not just "not hiding it" but shoving it in everyone's face. He is more arrogant and less principled that Andrew Jackson, more corrupt than Harding's entire cabinet, more criminal than Nixon, more racist than Woodrow Wilson or Andrew Johnson, less competent than Polk or Coolidge or Bush Jr. Frankly, there is no aspect of any of the worst, most contemptible White House occupants that Trump has not exceeded by a mile. He is a one-man constitutional crisis.

Mr Trump said there is no QPQ therefore there is no QPQ. The Base believes it as fact and nothing can change that.

More racist than Woodrow Wilson? Wilson's favorite movie was Birth of a Nation because it glorified the Klan. Birth of a Nation If you put ALL of the racist comments that Pres. Trump is supposed to have made he does not even come close to be as racist as Wilson was. That you you or anyone else even thinks that Trump is more racist than Wilson was is based on your hatred of Trump not on the truth! Wilson segregated the federal workforce. Wilson's racism Any claim you have to being principled NW just disappeared with your claim that Trump is more racist than Wilson was.
