His approval is down with Mitt Romney. Romney will be the first Senator to vote to convict a President from his own party.

You guys are dodging the hard question: wtf is happening in Iowa?
The Dems are busy convincing us they can run healthcare for the entire country. Obamacare Exchange rollout redux.

LOL at getting impeached for going after a 4th place non-podium finisher. Although maybe he came in 4th because of the slagging?

So are you willing to admit that Biden isn't Trump's political rival?

Are you attempting to imply Trump used Rudy and henchman Parnas to get Ukraine to announce an investigation of Biden on principle?

Those are your words. But I am suggesting that it's hard to characterize Biden as a rival.

I expect he thinks/thought Biden his strongest rival.

The idea that a man who ran a corrupt charity that he had to pay $2M in penalties for, that he would ever be anything other than jealous of someone else's corruption is pretty humorous.

More like making a bet. Never bet on Trump telling the truth.

I actually think he's kept more of his campaign promises than most. But I get what you're saying.

Trump acquitted 52-48. Let's hug it out my brahs.

If the glove doesn't fit, the Senate must acquit.

Mitt Romney was an excellent governor in Massachusetts. He fucked up in the 3rd debate vs. the First Kenyan, and he's gotten dumber and more deranged since then. He has taken the place of Jeff Flake as the village idiot of the Republican wing of the Senate. Fucking turncoat.

Nancy Pelosi is such a twat. Trump didn't shake Pence's hand either. She started out passive aggressive with the introduction, and went full hostile, tearing up the speech.

How do you think the people Trump introduced felt about that?

I've seen less petulance from a teenager after a parent took the car keys.

Democrats can't figure out their shit in Iowa, Trump at 49% (that will get bumped) Stock market on fire for everyone (pensions, 401k's, IRA's) and now an acquittal.

This will be a landslide. America isn't going to elect, a gay, a Jew, or a woman.

Trump just shit the bed at the National Prayer Breakfast. Deficit has gone up to almost unthinkable levels. He loves North Korea.

Looks like Butt Judge is packing it in (heh) and going back to being a faggot. Was amusing watching MSM try to force him down people's throats (heh).

Klobuchar also dropping out and endorsing Biden. A little surprising to see Democrats being good at politics.

This is DNC coordinated; all the moderates like Butt Judge are pulling out (heh) from behind (heh) to throw their delegates behind Biden and block Bernie's ascendancy.

Bernie's polling at 29% nationally, which is the highest he's ever polled. He's received fewer votes than Biden so far. You don't exactly have to form a conspiracy to beat a guy polling at 29%, you just need to split the vote amongst fewer people.

Bernie is below where Trump was just before Super Tuesday 2016. Had Jeb!, Rubio, Kasich, Cruz, etc. decided to bow out sooner, better things may have happened.
