Nah, not if there is Blue Wave. If there is Pence won't be able to get much done.


Pence is essentially Bush, and while that administration seemed intolerbale at the time, it does not even compare to what we are experiencing now.

"If the opposite party becomes president every time before it even starts before you even found out whether or not he or she is going to do a great job they'll say we want to impeach em and you'll impeach em it's so ridiculous but we'll worry about that if it ever happens, but if it does happen, it's your fault because you didn't go out to vote. Ok? You didn't go out to vote. That's the only way it could happen." DJT 9/6/18

Two things:

1) so many of the snips we've heard from this book back up what Michael Wolff wrote in Fire and Fury. And despite Wolff being discredited on a couple of items, those stories that he saw & heard (remember, Wolff was in the White House while doing research; Woodward is interviewing people with the exact same story as Wollf told) in Wolff's book are the same tales over and over. Trumps comprehension is 5th grade, he's easily distracted, hates meetings, rants and stomps around in tantrums. Long list; and

2) I cannot wait for this book to come out next week. I am going to be on it faster than a sweat puddle under a fat guy at a free buffet.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Saw Woodward interviewed this mornning. He says all of the incidents he lists in the book have times, dates, who was in the room. He stands by all of the accounts. Does not seem in the least bit affected by Trump's remarks.

Since even before he took office, I said I didn’t want to become numb because of the craziness. This was BEFORE he took office. I think we’ve all lost count of all the antics.

Let’s remember when Obama was President, the right-wingers here had to go back to chappaquiddick. They had two or three chestnuts they memorized with the help of Rush Limbaugh. For the GOP and horribleness, we can’t keep up. There is no database that can keep up with all their crap.

I saw a bit of him on Today as well as numerous other shows. I'm actually more anxious to read his book than Omarosa's.

Woodward just published the letter that was grabbed from Trump's desk by Cohn:


Hint: Look at the top of the document.
No way this was intended to be signed & sent.

Even if it was, what would have been simpler then open the file, print again, sign, seal & send?

It states it was a draft letter. The thing is that Trump wanted to do this and had them draw up a draft letter for him to review. And you would think it would be simple to open a file, print again, and sign it, except that once it was removed from Trump's desk, he forgot all about it. He was so gung-ho on doing this, but when it was "out of sight" it apparently became "out of mind". Do you really support a president who states he wants to do something, then if they remove the subject from under his nose, he forgets about it? And, he wouldn't have had access to the file. Someone else typed the letter and gave it to Trump.

Omarosa, Woodward, NYT OPEd and his own tweeting have contributed - Trump (and republicans) should FEAR his falling approval ratings - we'll see how they shake out before November:


https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/11/politics/trump-approval-rating-dropped/index.html

In the latest average, Trump's approval rating is about 38% in eight polls from ABC News/Washington Post, CNN, Gallup, IBD/TIPP, the Kaiser Family Foundation, Quinnipiac University, Selzer & Co. and Suffolk University.
If we just took an average of the last polls by these organizations completed August 27 or earlier, Trump's approval rating stood at 41%.
Now, not all of these pollsters show the same drop. Trump's 6-point decline in CNN's poll is the largest. When you take an average of their latest two tracking polls compared with their prior two, Gallup has Trump dipping just a percentage point.
You'd expect such differences though given sampling error.
An average 3-point decline is rather remarkable for a President whose approval rating has been one of the steadiest on record. It would suggest that something the President did had a real impact on public perception.
House Republicans should worry about Trump's approval rating drop, if it holds through November. Voter opinions of the president have been increasingly tied up with how they vote in midterm elections.

So far it’s a very interesting read. You learn a little bit about the I side of running a campaign and crazy the whole thing was. So far it reads like it would make a great movie.

So far, the book is more fun than anything else, But on the serious side, this type of book should be standard in civic classes becase it goes behind the scenes and demystifies politics. It clearly shows that the people behind the curtain are just regular people. Sometimes terrible people and we should not take anything they say as gospel and we should always question them and think critically. Think about their qualifications, motives and well being.

Haven’t finished reading it, but still highly recommend it whether you like or hate Trump.

He was on Morning Joe. Seems the real beef with Trump is he is against Free Trade. lol. Good for him. Shows Woodward is a big capitalist dick. Trump wanted to let the treasury create more fiat currency but his handlers said no.
