Someone asked me this evening what I think of the news. What news? I’m extremely happy that Mitt Romney had the courage to be the first senator to vote to impeach a president of his own party. He makes me proud to be an American.
Adam Schiff likewise, chose today to focus on the courageous statements and votes of Senators Joe Manchin, Doug Jones, and Kirsten Sinema rather than on the moral cowards in the Senate who acknowledged publicly that the ‘president’ was guilty but were voting no anyway, like Lamar Alexander, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Marco Rubio.
The sham acquittal is not news.
An acquittal with no witnesses is not an acquittal. We are learning how cowardly the modern Republican Party really is. They are literally guilty of encouraging a madman.
(Please check out the video the madman just released talking about staying in power until 2054.) In this video, he ridicules limits on his terms in office.
But many average Americans are STILL saying a pox on both houses. They still don’t get it. They don’t get what he’s doing.
Only one candidate has consistently emphasized the broad foreign policy context providing answers as to why election interference is being pursued by Russia, not just here, but around the world.
And in hard political reality, only one candidate has the ability to bring together both centrist Democrats and the black community into a strong coalition that has the likeliest chance of victory.
That candidate is Joe Biden.
