    "tell Vladimir I will have more flexibility after the election" Know who said that? Obozo the great. Was he colluding? making promises? making deals? promising insider information?


    Hillary, when SecState gave Russia 20% of our uranium stockpile. What did she expect in return? Was that collusion? bribery? treason?
    the double standard of you libtardians is amazing

    if incompetence was grounds for impeachment, Obama would have been impeached in February 2008.

    Trump will serve his entire 4 years, possibly 8 years. you are pissing into the wind.

    If you are a democrat congressperson and you take into consideration the fake polling data that projected Hillary in a landslide and when you consider that democrats have gone from a political power to a whiny leaderless mob in less than a decade you have to be scared shitless.

    Obama was able to work with his party when he had a friendly congress, to accomplish some actual legislative achievements. Trump hasn't even been able to do that....with his own party in the majority....THAT's incompetence in spades. A president who, from his first day in office is ruling by Executive Order.

    Yeah, but maybe not so much his incompetence as that of the GOP in congress. Not that Trump hasn't been all that competent, but the fact that the GOP-controlled Congress can't seem to get shit done isn't really his fault. And BTW, I don't think Obama worked with Congress when it belonged to the Dems or when it didn't. It appeared to me that when Pelosi and Reid were in charge he pretty much stayed out of the fray and let them run their respective chambers.

    The GOP is splintered into factions - deeper but not too different then Obama's Democrats when they still held a number of conservative seats. It's the job of the President to work with them and unite them towards some common goals in order to get his agenda passed.

    You can lead a horse to water .....

    Maybe those common goals you speak of are not all that common. Some of the Repub people in Congress have a different agenda and they may not be willing to budge. Not sure that's all his fault. You saw what happened to those Dems that held a number of conservative seats in Congress, and they got their asses kicked in 2010. I don't believe that lesson has been lost on the Repubs.

    Or it's a bunch of judges who love to abuse their authority and a Congress that is stupid enough to think that they won because of rhetoric, not issues.

    The GOP congress is not mindless blocks of wood. THey are a third of the government and they have a responsibility to represent their voters, the same voters that elected Trump.

    ie, there is no reason to give those asshole a pass.

    Newt said today if the investigation comes up empty Trump's reelection is a shoe in.
