1. I know right

He is amazing. I watch him whenever I can and follow him on Twitter. Love when he is on Bill Maher.

2. W Bush Ethics Lawyer?

Isn't that an oxymoron?

8. I don't see it. The GOP is using every trick in the book.

Maybe he's had a change of heart and maybe it's just talk. Either way, he helped set in motion something that won't be so easily stopped.

Sometimes sorry isn't good enough.

10. Understood. But he is currently a very powerful voice of reason in this conflagration (and has

been for a couple of months now). Change of heart, or just deeply appalled by every single thing LOSER 45 has done and stands for? - I don't know...maybe he needs to be experienced in person, yard, to get the full effect of his articulate denunciation of all things drumpf -

16. He's been on Joy Reid's show quite often and has consistenly bashed trump and...

calls for the white supremacists in his admin to be fired.

He doesn't bite his tongue. He calls Bannon and Gorka by name and says if they are not removed by trump, trump will be removed.

He's gained my respect. He's part of the old Republican party establishment (I usually use the term repug), which trump and his racists consultants aren't.

I think the wheels are beginning to turn behind the scenes to get this white supremacist administration out of the White House.

12. Sorry isn't good enough

for sure, yardwork. I lump him into the "the enemy of my enemy" faction although I think we would be crazy to consider him a friend. It is going to take cooperation from republicans to get trump out and I hope Pence as well. If there are some sane voices in the wilderness, I will take them in hopes they will influence tptb to move.

27. I've seen him quite a bit. He and Tribe were very strongly appalled

by 45's $$ interests, has talked a lot about the Emoluments Clause, been very outspoken. I find him sincere.

but he's been nailing it on a regular basis.

Painter and Navarro are both Republicans, I believe, but they talk sense and are true American patriots.

20. I saw him on AM Joy. He said the republicans aren't racist. He said that's not his party.

Mr ethics is denying all of the de franchising of the people of color and denying them their right to vote by his lovely party with their dirty tricks.

Just because many republican politicians say they hate nazis doesn't mean they aren't doing a lot of horrible things to people of color.

Enemy of my enemy. Ok. I can get on board.

But tossing underwear up on stage? What the fuck?

Where was this guy when his boss was prosecuting an illegal war, outing CIA agents, running illegal propaganda campaigns (NCLB/Armstrong Williams) and setting off phony terror code alerts to win an election??

19. He was a professor for my wife

 

When going through law school she had him as a prof. She said he was excellent then and she has a lot of admiration for him despite being diametrically opposed politically.

He's not going to stand for a monster like Trump define his party. Everything he says makes sense and is the right thing.
