That's pretty funny. You get to hear "real America" when you can't pick the audience. Speaking of "real America"....

 

 

 

89% of the population of Topeka has graduated high school. Only 83% of Chicago's population has. US average is 87%. Trump could have used "education levels" as another talking point.

Trump could have also talked about all the states in the bottom of the education rankings.  Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, etc....   The poorest, most uneducated, most obese states.   But he didn't.  


You know who else didn't?   Obama and most all US Presidents before him.  

 

These kinds of arguments are counter productive to what an American POTUS should be having.   I don't care how great the economy supposedly is, Trump is a horrible president, not worthy of the office.

It’s going to be extremely difficult to paint this guy as a “Deep State leftist”... idk if holding onto his testimony until two days before the vote was intentional or not... but based on the opening statement, this will be by far the most damning yet, and implicates a couple people for perjury.

Vindman is wearing his uniform to testify - power move. 

 

Just wait until the public hearings and he is testifying in uniform.  The GOP will be crying that this shouldn't be in public.

Rep. Steven Scalise is one of the biggest complainers about process. He lies and obfuscates to protect trump. I'm glad he is using his second lease on life to be a bigger POS than he was before.  Usually getting shot might lead someone to rethink their life. Not for GOP traitors, I guess.

Yeah so I mean on the whole I agree with you - but the reference to him being nearly mortally wounded does no one any favors, man.

So Vindman's opening statement directly implicates Gordon Sondland (who clearly perjured himself when he testified), NSC lead counsel, Rick Perry, John Bolton, and Kurt Volker.

The really damning part is that he reported this twice

My only point is that he should've used his survival to rethink his life.  He likely has and is OK being a POS.

His concern isn't partisan - he was worried the request would be seen as political and undermine the bipartisan support for Ukraine, which is also accurate and something very few people have brought up before.

Like an ocean or something.  

 

I love this line from the story: 

Cautiously, Diaz-Balart said, “I’m troubled… and of course, have a special concern” when requirements in Congressional appropriations are not met because it may mean even greater taxpayer costs in the future.

 

Republicans are always "troubled" by things that they do nothing about.

I have already seen some of his supporters on social media saying that Obama coddled Bin Laden while Trump was a big strong man.  The coddling was apparently "Obama gave him a funeral".  I guess dumping the body into the ocean after killing him was a funeral.  

 

All support for Trump can be explained by this simple maxim (I forget where I first read it);

 

He’s a;

Weak man’s idea of a strong man

Poor man’s idea of a rich man

Dumb man’s idea of a smart man

Obama was also accused of not actually killing Osama via the funeral

 

Because, you'll never believe this, he was a President who actually cared about the fallout of delivering the news that the world's most notorious terrorist was killed and how that would be received in the Middle East.

there were a number of posts a couple of days ago on this very topic. Funny, I don't recall you making sarcastic comments in response. I must have missed them.

Baghdadi was also dumped into the sea.  Or at least whatever was left of him.

Those people discuss unimportant matters like the latest in the impeachment inquiry, the President's crimes, etc.  You stay above those unimportant matters!  Take the compliment, Don.

well, whatever did or didn't do regarding Osama, he was kinda responsible for allowing the establishment and rapid growth of ISIS, something not much in dispute. 

 

Except that's simplistic and false.  They were formed in 2004.  They surged and faded at least a few times, but many credit the Iraq War and the long-term consequences of its poor planning on allowing them to keep going.  Obama's foreign policies were not perfect, but ISIS' power arguably began to wane 2015-2016.  And if you have a problem with ISIS, where was your criticism regarding Trump pulling out of Syria and allowing at least 100 ISIS members escaping prison?  You may have no issue abandoning allies or empowering Russia and Turkey authoritarians at the expense of the US, but pretty much everyone except sycophants believe this was a colossal error.

Have you per chance read Fiasco? There's a bit more nuance to this stemming from our debaathification policy in Iraq in 2003, which effectively left a couple million sunnis unemployed after we installed a Shi'ia government. Though, Obama could have certainly done more to quell the outbreak, he wasn't "patient zero" for ISIS

^ Lindsey Graham making the same argument. His resolution was in bad faith just like we knew.

Lindsey Graham just needs to have his anti-gay butt dragged kicking and screaming right outta the closet.  I mean really... I hate these anti-gay closet cases-especially when they are so damn obvious. 

 

And Trump needs to be behind bars.
