    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    What incident are you referring to? Biden-Shokin?

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    You don't speak for me. I don't think it's bullshit at all. Why do you think it's bullshit? Do you believe that Congress has the power of the purse?

    I believe that all presidents used their power to do things that were unsaid by Congress when a budget was passed.

    For instance:
    Various Democrats are all over the media today saying that the fact that the GAO found that Trump acted illegally re spending appropriated funds means he should be tossed out of office. Does this mean that Obama, whom the GAO found illegally defied Congress in ordering the Defense Department to send five Guantanomo prisoners to Qatar in defiance of duly-enacted legislation prohibited Obama from expending any funds on such action, should have been removed from office as well?

    Like I said, I know its bullshit, and you do to. That won't stop your Trump hate though.

    This is what I said about the Bergdahl swap:

    I'm consistent. I would also love to see Trump impeached over his violation of the law.

    And, if you think getting Ukraine to investigate Biden was something Congress wanted but left unstated, that is bullshit. The notion that Trump is concerned with corruption in Ukraine (in general) is bullshit. The notion that Burisma had anything whatsoever to do with the military aid Trump was holding up is bullshit.

    My point is, and was, ONLY TRUMP is being singled out for illegal actions as a president. Know why Norm? Cause the political elite want their cushy ass jobs left alone. If that doesn't bother you, it should.

    Only Trump is using the power of the presidency to help himself. Nixon did some of that, too, but you see what happened to him.

    What a pant load. Obama did it, and certainly Biden did to. But you just go ahead and railroad Trump.
