Yeah, but with Pence we'll get it about 10x faster.

I think a focused notice this is the concern pushback is simpler for a dull religious figure like a pence

I agree that Trump will ultimately fall—the sharks are just circling ATM and letting the orange buffoon drown himself in his own massive ego, sophistry, and subterfuge. There's no need to even think of impeachment at the moment.

One question comes to my mind (yeah, I know that was an effort LOL) but Mike Pence has 17 years of political experience behind him including 4 years as a state governor, whereas Trump has absolutely nada, zero, zilch—and even after 6 months as POTUS still appears to be working on maintaining that duck egg.

Does the American electorate see any inherent Pence advantage in that political status—as far as a competent presidency goes? Or do his ultraconservative views on hot topics—banning abortion and stem-cell research, anti-LGBTQ, easing of gun laws, pro-tobacco etc—outweigh that?

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
Here is the entire interview with the NYtimes.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/19/us/po...cript.html

Quote:Trump flatly declared that if Attorney General Jeff Sessions had told him in advance that he would recuse himself from the Russia probe, “I would have picked somebody else.” Just as bad, Trump also said that Sessions’s recusal was “very unfair to the president,” i.e., unfair to him.

Quote:Trump said clearly that if special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is examining his family’s finances, he would view that as an abuse of his role. While Trump declined to say whether he would try to get Mueller removed, he said he would view any such overstepping as a “violation.”

Quote:In at least two exchanges, Trump was asked directly about the fact that Donald Trump Jr.’s email chain showed that the information offered to his campaign in advance of the now-notorious meeting came from the Russian government. In one of them, he strongly suggested that being open to such information was no biggie. In the other, he dismissed the offer itself as “standard political stuff.”

I think "adoptions" is codeword for "election campaign".

Is that the best response they can come up with to sanctions? "Oh yeah oh yeah. Well no more Russian babies for you. How you like them beets?"

This just makes me more and more convinced that Putin has the pee tape. That's leverage - "no more Russian babies for you", not so much.

I want to see those tax returns. I think it's all in there.

Trump said that he had no financial dealings with the Russians. Well, maybe he sold them a condo or two, he sold a lot of condos.

I'm guessing he wrote off the golden shower hookers as a business expense. I know I would have.
