    That wont work, dude,

    For Republicans to deliver on their promises and to also do their jobs as leaders in Congress they are going to have to reach across the aisle.

    Such is life, that we dont always get what we think we must have, and have to learn to make do with what we can have.

    His time is limited and he is using it to reflect. Funny how that wakes some up. That is a good thing.

    Hell no. I would rather the duopoly burn in hell. But the second best thing would be for them to act like congressmen, but that wont happen. Unless it involves selling out american citizens or war.
    What does that have to do with him being an idiot, anyways?
    Did you know he graduated 790 out of 795 in the naval academy?

    Speechwriters get paid for cleaning toilets. Amiright?

    What puzzles me is, if everyone on the radio is saying this is the best speech since Gettysburg, and most rational people have been criticizing the divisiveness of Congress for months, WHY ARE OUR LEGISLATORS STILL NOT GETTING THE MESSAGE?
    What is happening today is not bipartisan. The whole awful scenario of Trump firing Sessions and appointing a sycophant to replace him while the Congress is in recess, all to set up firing Mueller, is absolutely the most raw example of partisan bullshit I've ever seen.
    So people are talking out of both sides of their mouth here. Rah rah, bipartisanship, but hell no, let's not actually compromise anywhere. Let the war continue.

    Congress straining at Republican gnats while ignoring Hillary Clinton's hundreds of millions of USD solicited from the Russians as she agreed as Sec of State to allow a Russian company to purchase 25% of our national Uranium reserves is also absurdly partisan.

    It's just that you are being pretty vicious about a man who may not hold your opinions on things but has served his state and his country for his whole life. He deserves a bit more respect than that.

    Why did you pretend to think McCain's speech was moving if you are going to continue posturing this way?
