    The Dems Are Getting Beat Up By The Cable News Channels Talking Heads.....

    Why is it that the Repugs always seem to outsmart the Dems?



    I keep hearing that if this was the Obama Administration facing Congressional Testimony that this would all play out differently. I'm gonna scream if I hear that one more time.

    Over the last 2 1/2 years we've watched this all go down in real time and know that this administration and the Repugs are as guilty as sin. We've seen them break laws right in front of us. However, when we hear opening statements like the one that Lewandowski gave today - it comes off as being credible. And the questioning by the Repugs of Lewandowski supports his credibility. It seems apparent that this has all been strategized and pre-arranged. The Repugs and Lewandowski came in prepared. Prepared to obstruct and obfuscate.

    The Repugs always pull off an 'Eddie Haskell' and claim innocence when being confronted by Mrs. Cleaver (the Dems).

    I feel so helpless when i watch this going on and wonder why we're not as adept as the Repugs when dealing with such situations? We should have Trump and the Repugs 'dead to rights' on their 'obstruction' and 'collusion' and the continuing obstruction to their original obstruction.

    It's no wonder why the 'deplorables' believe them.

    I'm tired of hearing that the Dems don't resort to the same tactics as the Repugs - because we're better than that.

    Well look where being better than that is getting us.
    What idiots. Republicans come across as credible because they ARE credible. They are telling the TRUTH, while Democrats lie over and over again and think that if they CLAIM it is 'true' that it makes it so.

    Right!! Lie some more and claim it is 'truth'........and then lie again when the truth comes out.

    3. I think I need to skip watching until maybe Rachel or Laurence...

    I am pinning today's hopes on the possibility that Netanyahu is defeated. That might make it bearable.
    That's predictable. Close eyes, plug ears and chant "I only believe what I decide it true" until propaganda Rachel/Laurence comes on. *All the while ignoring that they have been wrong all along.*

    I just called and left a message at Nadlerís office telling him how irritated and disappointed I am. He needs to use all the power he has and not be such a whimp.

    17. Ignore the manufactured drama...

    Ignore the manufactured drama in the #Lewandowski hearing and focus on him confirming, as the Mueller report established, that President Trump asked him to tell the Attorney General to rein in the Russia probe.

    So President Trump just saying that he wants the Russia probe to end is "obstruction". Democrats are going to be in a world of hurt if SAYING something is considered the same as doing.

    Think execution for sedition for attempting to overthrow a legally elected President.

    And if that extends the the DUmmies and what they have said so much the better.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    I think DU-folks are whining that they expected House Dems to have their way with Lewandowski, the Dems got their asses handed to them, and even CNN and/or MesSNBC had to admit it.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Walked into the break room, and Fox News was on. Just saw the Chiron said "impeachment hearings" and wondered what the hell I missed. Obviously not a big deal.

    From what I'm gathering, it turned out to be another Mueller hearing.

    From "The Hill" a liberal news outlet.
    The committee hearing quickly descended into chaos as Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) sought to question Lewandowski.


    Lewandowski first insisted that Nadler provide a copy of the Mueller report so that he could follow along with the passages as Democrats read them.


    He then told Nadler that he does not remember the 2017 Oval Office meeting in which Trump asked Lewandowski to persuade then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reverse his recusal and set new limits on the Mueller probe, which was laid out in the special counsel's report.

    Things quickly went downhill from there.


    Doesn't sound like it went well,.

Mueller already said there was no crime of collusion. Without a crime, how can there be obstruction?
    What are the dems going to tell their constituents next year that they accomplished this term when they are begging for their votes for 2 more years?

    Your post came 30-minutes before one of the most intense, scorching, senses-shattering encounters in CSPAN/D.C. history.

    I hope you got to see it. Wow!

    Dems brought-in a professional contract-attorney as their 'staff' counsel, setting-off a firestorm. I can't even describe the dynamics resulting from everybody's reaction to this nasty trick. Nadler had set a GOTCHA-trap for Lewandowski, obviously counting-on Lewandowski being 'worn-down' by the all-day grilling. In comes a fully-rested professional, loaded with Lewandowski vid-clips and book-excerpts.

    But Lewandowski suddenly adrenalized-into Super Lewandowski... and the two clashed for 30-straight-minutes in rapid-fire, psychological bitchery.

    With Corey emerging as same ol' Corey at the end. Victorious, unshaken, very-totally ready to become the next Senator from New Hampshire. Bravo.

    I'm still reading from liberal outlets how they felt.

    This line sums it up nicely from the Washington Exam.

    House Democrats are still relitigating 2016, and at this rate, they'll still be doing so in 2040. Even then, they still will not have learned not to invite Trump trolls to beat you at your own game.
