No. I am bitterly disappointed and Mueller rates about as lowly as the FBI hack who handed the election to Trump. Clueles hacks all.March 25, 2019 at 10:56 pm #838857
PS — Ameirika is now hopelessly FUCKED. Six more years of Trump? Somebody? Anybody? Kill me, please. Immediately. Yep — calling it now. Six more FUCKKKKING years of Pussygrabber in Chief. Stick a fork in democracy, it’s as good as done. To think anything otherwise is sheer delusion.March 26, 2019 at 5:35 am #838868
Relieved at what? Barr’s 4-page extreme whitewash of Mueller’s very comprehensive report? Mueller not finding collusion? What the hell was thr Trump Tower meeting then? This whole thing is incredibly disturbing, and withholding the actual report is an insult to America and very damaging to democracy.March 26, 2019 at 6:15 am #838870
The only thing that keeps me sane is that Mueller transferred key issues over to four states where they operate and those lawsuits are not going away any time soon.
I hold out hope that his kids end up in jail and that his organization is decimated.
But yes, the democrats can’t get their act together and there is no one who stands out as the clear front runner. Beto? Pshaw. Bernie? Dude is going to drop dead. Biden? He’s just as old! Harris? Black and a woman – the olds can’t handle that much. Booker? Love him – but can he pull it off?March 26, 2019 at 3:16 pm #838912
How about Pete Buttigieg? He’s #3 now and doing very well. My mom is in love with him.
Apparently President Buchanan was pretty openly gay, but Buttigieg would be the first *married* gay president. And a 2015 Gallup poll showed 74% of Americans would vote for a well-qualified gay or lesbian candidate.
I do not accept Barr’s representation of the Mueller report, by the way. I think there’s a lot of very ugly stuff in it, and it’s a really sick travesty that it’s being suppressed and most Americans will just believe the headline. NOT that anything in it would change anyone’s mind or lead to successful impeachment, but we need to know what’s in it.March 26, 2019 at 3:50 pm #838917
I hate to say it, but I tend to agree, BGM. Or I did until Trump fucked it up and decided to abandon any defense of the ACA, instead advising the court that this admin thinks it’s unconstitutional and should be invalidated. Saving healthcare gives the Dems something to rally around besides the straight anti-Trump stuff and it’s an issue that won for them in 2018. It actually leaves room for a less moderate candidate, now. Before, when the drive was “back to normal”, I thought for sure the Dems would have to go with a middle of the road white dude (like Biden or maybe Beto, not Bernie). Now, if the fight is over actual issues, I think more diverse candidates have a shot.March 26, 2019 at 4:10 pm #838920
I like PB but is he ready for this?
Dems need to start shouting about the realities. Kids are still in cages. Parents have been separated from their children. The tax cuts went back to businesses and not jobs. How many companies moved their operations from US to outside of US? How much will health care cost without ACA? The GOP is coming for your Social Security and Medicaid… so you best be prepared to live without them. How else are people going to reduce taxes?
I’ve also sent notes to Pelosi and Schumer suggesting that they acknowledge the initial findings of the Mueller report while also very publicly note that it’s quite remarkable that he was manipulated so easily by this group of con men and liars. Just so easily manipulated. So foolish.March 26, 2019 at 4:32 pm #838922
Pete seems ready for it, even though he’s young. He doesn’t get rattled, and he’s had great responses to tough questions. He grew up gay in the Bible Belt and he knows how to deal with bullies.
He also revived a rust belt town, is a veteran (Afghanistan), is religious, and his husband is killing it on social media.March 29, 2019 at 9:27 am #839206
@LisforLeslie- It is infuriating. But I’ll take my ranting somewhere else.March 29, 2019 at 9:35 am #839207March 29, 2019 at 12:45 pm #839213
I’m kinda getting on the Mayor Pete train… dude speaks a lot of languages. Plus if he is elected he might have White House Babies!
And a 2 year old Buttigieg would still be better behaved than who there now.March 29, 2019 at 12:54 pm #839215
I have to read his autobiography that my mom has shipped to me from Amazon because she was reading it and was so excited about it that she couldn’t just finish it and lend me her copy.
He looks just like this boss I had once, Larry, who was soooooooo nice.
