    rather not say
  1. Perhaps i should say gaps, for you only have my online writings. I have a lot in folders that you haven't seen And no one studies them as closely and constantly as you do.
  2. When I die, I will leave all my papers to you so you can fill in any holes you may have.
  3. Yeah, some of the liberal sites were saying "don't make a hero out of him." I don't think he is a hero. But I do think he is a human being, and comes with all the faults that every human has or is capable of. "I picked you to be FBI director because of your integrity and your ability," Obama said to Comey, according to the book. "I want you to know that nothing has happened in the last year to change my view." Obama's words came at a time when Comey was under intense scrutiny over some of the actions he took during the FBI's investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server. Democrats were seething, gripped by the notion that Comey's public pronouncements about the investigation had damaged Clinton, who was the party's 2016 presidential nominee. That reassurance from Obama reportedly left Comey on the verge of tears. "Boy, were those words I needed to hear ... I'm just trying to do the right thing," Comey recounted in the book. "I know," Obama replied. "I know." Link Two flawed men, but that's okay, because they were decent. A rare sight in DC these days.
  4. "Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks before the election that Comey would soon announce that “new” emails had been found, reopening the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Importantly, Comey confirmed to Maddow that he doesn’t know the answer to that question, because he was fired before that investigation concluded." Link Kinda funny since Giuliani just joined the Trump legal team.
  5. You and the Republicans don't seem very interested in getting to the bottom of Russian interference in our elections.
  6. So many guns out there.... I'm just guessing that a guy who shoots himself afterwards, as in this case, means its probably not about the demonization of law enforcement. But we don't know, and perhaps never will.
  7. Its difficult to believe that the FBI conspired to kill the Hillary investigation since they announced they were reopening it days before the election. However, it is very dangerous to use the law enforcement apparatus to go after your political opponents. Its what dictators do. This is probably why even though his supporters wanted him to do it, and he certainly could have, and found guilty parties, Obama declined to investigate the Bush administration's foray into torture. As the great tyrant of American fiction, Willie Stark, famously said, "Jack, there's something on everybody. ...Man is conceived in sin and born in corruption." Libertarians excepted, of course. They are as pure as the driven snow.
  8. It may be the worst midwestern terrorist attack in our history.
  9. At this point, I am content that were winning a lot of off-year elections.
  10. It backfired. It didnt cut into his popularity at all. And they picked up seats. Most Americans don't want Trump impeached and so at this point, it would be counterproductive for Dems to talk about, on the campaign.
