    Grit your teeth. Persevere. Just a few more days and this awful, rotten, no-good, ridiculous, rancorous, sordid, disgraceful year in the civic life of our nation will be over. Here's hoping that we all — particularly special counsel Robert S. Mueller III — have a better 2018.

    Many of us began 2017 with the consoling thought that the Donald Trump presidency couldn't possibly be as bad as we feared. It turned out to be worse.

    Did you ever think you would hear a president use the words "very fine people" to describe participants in a torch-lit rally organized by white supremacists, neo- Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan? Did you ever think you would hear a U.S. ambassador to the United Nations thuggishly threaten that she would be "taking names" of countries that did not vote on a General Assembly resolution the way she wanted? Did you ever think the government of the world's biggest military and economic power would reject not just science but also empiricism itself, preferring to use made-up "alternative facts" as the basis for major decisions?

    We knew that Trump was narcissistic and shallow, but on Inauguration Day it was possible to at least hope he was self-aware enough to understand the weight that now rested on his shoulders, and perhaps grow into the job. He did not. If anything, he has gotten worse.

    Here are the reasons why:

    and your ass breath hypocrisy is sad ..

    in typical RW fashion $1.5 TRILLION DOLLARS got added on the deficit while Trumpdrones wiped off their chin with a big grin thanking Goldilocks.

    If Clinton had done that in 11 months every dipshit RW'r would be shittin' bricks whining about how the country was doomed, and the end was near.

    I hope the butt hurt continues well into the coming year. We’ve seen a couple pretty good “snaps” this past year; let’s see if the left can out do themselves in the new year.

    ‘Trump and his enablers have waged a relentless war against truth in an attempt to delegitimize any and all critical voices. He wields the epithet “fake news” as a cudgel against inconvenient facts and those who report them. Can a democracy function without a commonly accepted chronicle of events and encyclopedia of knowledge? We are conducting a dangerous experiment to find out.’ ibid

    It's a dangerous experiment being conducted against the will of a majority of the American people.

    But it was A-OK for your hero, the obummer, to add 6 to 8 trillion to the debt for nothing at all. Hypocrite much?

    What, with all the wars raging, the economy crumbling and illegals pouring over the border? Oh, maybe the butt hurt is worse than feared. OK then.

    That 1.5 trillion will be added over the span of 10 years. Obama's first budget was a 1.2 trillion deficit. Very selective of you.
