Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 09, 2018

Don't tell former FBI general counsel James Baker that those now-infamous discussions about secretly recording President Donald Trump and using the tapes to remove him from office were a joke. He apparently doesn't believe it. And he held quite the vantage point -- he was on the inside of the bureau's leadership in May 2017, when the discussions occurred.

That might not be a joke, but Trump is.

The accusation has been made. We need hearings and an unlimited investigation.

More hearsay to fire up the partisans, this time on the Right.

Once concrete evidence emerges, then this will be something to get fired up about, but at this point it is just sound and fury.

So a 72 hour investigation and no one important gets interviewed.

And the accuser has to go into hiding.

Got it.

The Anita Hill investigation was 27 years ago, you need to finally get over it.

The only investigation that Dems ever got over was Clinton, on the next day.

I get that you think the Dems are hung up on Trump. So, like, what are you, if not hung up on the Dems being hung up?

Why is it that 90.9% of your criticisms are of the party that any reasonable person would agree is at least closer to Berniebroasterism than the guy and the party that you pretty much never even mention.

Notice I left you 9.1% for you to play with as you see fit.

That was generous CBOB. Thanks!

It's simple really. Ragging on the GOP is an exercise in futility. its also redundant, as the entire site takes care of that function.
As a liberal, I want to see liberal candidates, with progressive policies, win elections and govern in a manner that benefits ALL Americans.

The Democratic Party is a Trojan horse filled with snakes, wolves, worms, and posers. I would like to see one of two things happen.
1) Burn it like a hornets nest and take back the party from elite centrist mods, or 2) #WalkAway and leave the liars abandoned of support and create a viable 3rd party for working class people.

There's no other options. I'm fine with either one.

Russian bots are back: #WalkAway attack on Democrats is a likely Kremlin operation
Are real-life Democrats leaving the party in disgust? No, but Russian-fueled online trolls want you to think so.

I guess your post speaks for itself.

Salon and Huffpoo have confirmed that anything denigrating the party of Her Bitterness is a Russian operation.
So, make sure to √Vote Blue!, because there are no 1%'rs hiding behind them. no siree. Just honest-to-goodness sleeves rolled up Muricans, just like you.

Never mind the gated mansions...haha, that's just where we hold our private fundraisers. We only live here part year anyways.

Why should any of us ever get over an injustice which resulted in Clarence Thomas sitting on the SC for life?
No, we aren't ever going to get over it til he is either retired or dead. Even then we will still remember it.

So out of his mind that he should just be ignored. Democrats are people like me, working class, decent, loving their families, patriotic. Sheeple is a lunatic whose ego is more important than the welfare of his nation. If he had to join a party to actually affect change it would diminish his sense of self worth because he would then just be one of many. I am happy to be one of many, the many are who actually accomplish things. The independent egos just gratify their selves. He's a big man in a small world, I prefer to be a small woman in a big world. You are either ego based or you are reality based. The ego based fools think they accomplish something with their self-centered politics but let's get real, they accomplish nothing except ego massage.

It's a shame how terrible and hateful partisan politics has become. So many Reps swore that America was going to fall apart and become a third-world country if Obama was elected. He was elected twice and the country is still going strong. Same could be said for W and Clinton (and before you say anything about the recession, remember that W actually fought against the deregs that allowed 2008 to occur and it's all in the record books so arguing it is irrelevant). There are very few President's who did enough harm to actually cause America to suffer and they are long dead. So far, in the 21st century, America has only suffered because of the people, not because of any President. The people are ruining this country.

Obama was elected twice because the Republicans stole the election, prevented people from voting, and all those illegal dead voters

"Unlimited" like in what Kavanaugh faced? Lol. Let's let Democrats define the scope of the "unlimited" investigation the way Republicans defined the scope with Kavanaugh.

The Dem party, in a nutshell.

Their entire plan to capture the house is chaos and throw tantrums.
Not one stick of policy to structure a platform. and what do they say they'll do if they win?

Impeach, resist, flail, wreak havoc, be uncivil, shart pants, stink the room. Frauds and Posers.
