The relative nature of life can be a real mind horsefeathers sometimes. I mean Tillerson, Kelly, Mattis, and Bolton are, in the grand scheme horrible humans, but compared to Trump and his cronies somehow come off as not that bad.

Of course, they were never actually concerned about free speech. But the posture meant that anyone else who was more offensive and more brazen could displace them--provided they also adopted the "protect Christians" posture

I use to think Trump was Frankenstein's monster, but it's readily apparent that the monster is all the millions of people who have been conditioned by talk radio and GOP rhetoric over the last 40 years. Trump just happens to be one of them.

Totally agree on this. No one argues that the Republicans care more about the environment over Democrats. This is something they should hammer after the impeachment process is over.

Just attack them on corruption, repealing healthcare for millions and environmental issues.

People are selfish horsefeathers. Them trusting Dems on the environment more than Pubs doesn't matter if the environment is priority number 80 to them.

Right, I don't know why the Democrats are so afraid to take a bold stand on a lot of issues that are important to the majority of Americans. Actually I kind of do, it's money.

The money behind the Democrats are so afraid of Warren and Sanders that they scrambling to get guys like Patrick and Bloomberg in the race as if that's what Democratic voters want. We are at a choice point in this country where the status quo no longer exists. Trying to bring "normal" back is not going to happen no matter how much Biden or the rest of the moderates want it to happen.

Yup, big money Dems don't want a Warren or Sanders and are going to throw their bodies in the way of it the way we are seeing people throw their bodies in front of Trump.

Biden's "oh republicans will go back to being reasonable after Trump" is just the worst horsefeathers. Bloodless Pete Buttigeig isn't much better.

I'm listening to the hearing while at work. This is a bad, bad day for Trump but will likely not change anything.
