    I don't have my head in the sand I realize Trump can possibly be reelected.

    Sounds like those people are not the demographic that democrats will appeal to no matter who they nominate especially if they think Trump actually is fighting for them

    Biden has not signed on to any of the things you claim democrats are campaigning on and he is the clear frontrunner so far, so that shows you that the party is not being overtaken by the extreme left which is my point.

    if you think those people you interact with are swaying the election I disagree every thing points to Trump losing support in main states that got reelected Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin he can't win if he loses those states.

    If Biden can win back some of those Obama, Trump voters and get black voters to turn out like they did not do for Hillary he is the favorite.

    What has Trump done to hold of increase those votes in the Midwest?

    You act like is is overwhelming favored in the Midwest he is not.

    Like I have said before I disagree with you that democrats are campaigning on the issues you deem negative and the facts are with me.

    When has anybody mentioned the green new deal lately?

    excerpt:

    This constitutional crisis is just for show. Partly the Democrats want the show because it just feels good to bash the administration. “This has had a cathartic effect on the Democrats because we have finally been able to find a way to fight back at the obstructionism,” Representative Jamie Raskin told my Times colleague Sheryl Gay Stolberg.

    Partly they are trying to appease the wing of the party that is calling for impeachment right away. The party leaders generally opposed impeachment for sensible reasons. It would be impossible to win a conviction in the Senate without some Republican cooperation and overwhelming popular support — which doesn’t exist. It’s much better for the Democrats if they focus media attention on their presidential candidates. A Trump vs. Nadler media war is exactly what Trump wants.

    The problem with any policy of appeasement is that it rarely appeases; it only emboldens. And that’s what’s happening. You can feel the atmosphere in the Democratic Party changing, getting more passionate, getting more caught up in the back-and-forth combat with Trump, getting more whipped up into impeachment furor.

    Democrats are fighting for access to the president's financial records.

    Great thread on this:



    Which prompted this tweet from Neal Katyal, former Acting Solicitor General of the United States...



    And this question arises...

    The Trump lawyer later argued that Congress should have almost no authority to investigate a president at all and said that Whitewater and Watergate investigations were both invalid. The basis for the argument is that "law enforcement" falls under the purview of the Justice Dept and it is up to them to investigate.

    However, they also said that the Justice Dept can't charge the president with a crime and that they shouldn't launch investigations if they can't prosecute.

    So basically the Trump administration's claim today is that there is NO authority in the United States that has the right to investigate matters related to the president.

    It is such a joke of an idea, why not? Barr taunted her, she tried to be clever, and he laughed at her straight to her face.

    Case closed.

    No, the joke is the chief law enforcement officer should be arrested. Though keeps in line with the president and his admin and family.

    Barr is breaking the law and the "rule of law".

    There is nothing funny about the destruction of our democracy.

    I can't imagine how the right would respond if the reverse was occurring. They would be seething.

    No, he isn't. The Democrat left is in full unhinged meltdown mode. Something is seriously wrong with these people, as demonstrated by the relentless barrage of ridiculously false accusations that they continuously hurl at their political adversaries.

    You live in a bubble and are not centered in reality.

    There is nothing to debate here.

    As noted previously, you simply have no idea what is happening in this country. How you got this way is unclear, but you are a lemming. Your thoughts and opinions are worthless. There is no kinder way to put it.

    I understand it's difficult for you too accept what you are.

    Either you realized long ago, and decided to double / triple down on the shouting idiot role, you are just a troll, or you are too simple to understand how you are being used. Doesn't really matter which it is....still a lemming.
