About Me

Always a Democrat. I can't understand conservatives. I try to understand them, but I can't. They don't make sense. Our country has gone so far right since 1981. I was just an average American who took many Democratic values for granted when Reagan was elected. It was like the rug was pulled out from under our society. Reagan ruined our country.

To lighten the mood: McCain-Graham Tear Up Talking About Their Friendship

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/321934-mccain-graham-tear-up-talking-about-their-friendship-during-cnn-town-hall

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) choked up during a CNN town hall on Wednesday when host Dana Bash asked about their well-known friendship.

The two senators are known as a duo throughout Washington for both their focus on foreign policy issues and their close relationship.

“He is loyal to his friends. He loves his country. And if he has to stand up to his party for his country, so be it. He would die for his country. I love him to death,” Graham said, wiping away a tear.

(I wonder if anyone on DU watched that town hall. I was actually gonna watch it, then I heard that MSNBC was doing a special, so I switched the channel)

House GOP defeats resolution requesting Trump-Russia documents

Source: Politico - By Kyle Cheney 02/28/17 06:56 PM

Congressional Republicans killed a Democratic measure Tuesday to pressure the Trump administration to turn over documents detailing President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, as well as conflicts of interest stemming from his business empire.

The measure, known as a “resolution of inquiry,” was defeated on an 18-16 party-line vote. The resolution would have requested that the Department of Justice provide Congress with “any document, record, memo, correspondence or other communication” related to “criminal or counterintelligence investigations” involving Trump or his White House staff.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) called the resolution “unnecessary, premature” and driven by politics. Instead, he said Republican members of the committee are drafting a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions requesting his voluntary cooperation in any investigation related to Russia and Trump’s business conflicts — with Democrats encouraged to sign on.

......

“This is just about politics and the hyperbole is thick enough to cut with a knife,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Florida freshman Republican. “In fact, what we are witnessing is that President Trump’s detractors are going through the stages of grief because Hillary Clinton lost and Donald Trump won.”
