It's gonna be the biggest hiring spree after the exodus of all their friends and acquaintances ("bizness partners"). Except, perhaps, that wedding caterer, who, IIRC, did a fairly good job in the position given to her after the Inogreation.

I must give Trump credit for the rare occasions on which he does the right thing. Here are a couple of examples:

Weakening NATO. (Why did NATO continue to exist after the collapse of the USSR? These institutions get a life and refuse to die, even when they no longer have a raison d'être.)


Withdrawal from Syria. Like me, the author of this piece feels just terrible about the Kurds, but they exist among giant neighbors in a part of the world where we can't project power easily. I'm sorry for them, but further American involvement will not avoid their inevitable collapse, and it will only increase the suffering of Syrians.

Not unless you count reversing a half-century of progress in civil rights.

The current guy is arguably in a greater conflict and he has refused to recuz. So yeah....."any" respect for the law is a plus...........considering the alternative, aka: we we got.

AFAIK, under normal circumstances, all identifying aspects would have been blurred before release...
Correct, and it logically follows that having Trump as President is an abnormal circumstance.

I see that Romney is positioning himself to be Pence's VP if Trump is impeached.

He ought to be able to bring us together, having been governor of Massachusetts and senator from Utah. His father was governor of Michigan and president of American Motors. Great resume there, between them. Mitt was tone deaf with the middle class, thinking he'd be able to reinforce his "shucks, we're just folks" image by telling people that he encouraged self-reliance in his son by giving him a million dollars to invest!! But, before he had to drink the Kool-Aid to get the 2012 nomination, he wasn't bad. The health care system he signed onto as governor of Massachusetts was in most respects identical to Obamacare. If he could move back that direction, I'd feel a little better.

I could like Romney if he would be himself instead of the masks he puts on.

I think the masks match the underwear.

Well he's a Mormon, so yer outta luck. Putting on masks (and magic underwear) is what they're all about!
