  1. It is not the same thing. The court’s were not dealing with conflicts in an impeachment inquiry. It was a matter of congressional oversight and the assertion of executive privilege, that’s normal operating procedure and the courts deal with a lot of it. So yes, it took awhile. An impeachment proceeding is not normal operating procedure nor would they shelve it in favor of other cases like they would normally do. It wouldn’t move at the breakneck pace the Democrats would like to get this hot potato issue out of their hands, but it wouldn’t move at the pace of business as usual either. The speed at which this is done is a political calculation meant to shield Dem house members from prolonging an unpopular process they’ve entered into. It has nothing to do with preserving the constitution, the republic, the rule of law, or any of the grand ideas that grifter Schiff claims to be protecting. The courts would love to get some examples jurisprudence on these matters, they would prioritize it. But because it keeps the heat on moderate House Dems the longer this goes, that’s been thrown out, and they will abuse their power, as Turley claims, to tack on an obstruction charge.
  2. It’s good on a Bond movie scale. It’s not cinema. Lots of lame mid 90’s action stuff that didn’t age well. Still, good villain, good Bond girls; definitely the best of the Brosnan era.
  3. The kid from Up is going to ko AJ again tomorrow.
  4. I should have said majority of those in favor, my apologies. There are some people that do see this as a bridge too far.
  5. After five years of a dozen adderall and 6 jack and cokes for breakfast, some plain old toast might be just what the doctor ordered. That is Klobuchar’s whole appeal, isn’t it? Too bad she wasn’t gay .
  6. We’ll have to disagree. I think the people who want Trump impeached want him out because he sucks in his entirety based on an accumulation of evidence for years that he should not have the job. I don’t think it’s because he wanted a publicity stunt announcement that a corrupt Ukrainian government was looking into a dirty company that paid the former VP’s unqualified dipshit son a lot of money to do a job he had no business doing.
  7. Ok, we can agree Stunner and Retro’s twitter feed’s suck.
  8. Yes. I think the courts would rule against Trump, and eventually the appeals would reach the Supreme Court. Whatever anyone might think about their judicial philosophy, Trump did not put Justices on the court sympathetic to his cause in this case. If he defied the Supreme Court he would be overwhelmingly washed in the Senate. It wouldn’t get that far. Trump would turn over the documents and comply with the subpoenas. The only smart thing he did in this mess was release the transcript right away. It hurt him initially, but the bombshell was over and done with right away. Defying the court would be a needless self inflicted wound when already nobody cares that much about this scandal.
  9. I didn’t want to be too petty and attack his mayoral record. I wouldn’t vote for him, but he’d be fine as President. He’s smart, seems like a decent person, and has been politically savvy enough to get this far in the race and still be a contender. His main problem as I see it is the only reason he has for running is that he knows he’s smart, savvy, and sees that the field is weak and Trump is beatable. It’s like hey, what the hell, maybe I should do the job. That and black voters don’t like him. That’s a big problem too.
  10. You said you wanted to see it. I was just being helpful, no need to be catty with me, Ed.
  11. https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSBRE82P0JI20120326 President Barack Obama was caught on camera on Monday assuring outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he will have "more flexibility" to deal with contentious issues like missile defense after the U.S. presidential election. Obama, during talks in Seoul, urged Moscow to give him "space" until after the November ballot, and Medvedev said he would relay the message to incoming Russian president Vladimir Putin... ...As he was leaning toward Medvedev in Seoul, Obama was overheard asking for time - "particularly with missile defense" - until he is in a better position politically to resolve such issues. "I understand your message about space," replied Medvedev, who will hand over the presidency to Putin in May. "This is my last election ... After my election I have more flexibility," Obama said, expressing confidence that he would win a second term. "I will transmit this information to Vladimir," said Medvedev, Putin's protégé and long considered number two in Moscow's power structure.
