It would appear that a very large percentage of Americans are really messed up and acting in a completely juvenile manner. The man won the election, why not just let him get on with doing the things he said he intended to do ? Where has democracy gone ? Grow up !

I disagree but really the DEMS would do far better with Trump at the helm in blunting the right's agenda. With him gone and Pence in place...if they cannot wrest control in 2018, the agenda will be implemented at lightening speed. Trump's ineffectiveness and impulsiveness are the DEM's main weapon against policy right now.

Exactly, the Democrats would be smart to drag this out. Appearrently the investigative team can go where ever the uncovered facts take them. With Trump that could mean a pretty wide range of malfeasance. This will drag on as if it were never ending. The daily speculation will be stupendous. The Democrats will treat Trump as a Lame Duck and will obstruct everything. You got your judge Republicans but that's all you will be getting. Who will want to get near a guy who could very well end up in jail.

99% of the things Trump talks about are things he has "No power to decide", Congress and the party that controls Congress decides.

"I am going to build a wall" is not his decision to make, its a policy announcement at best. Contrary to popular opinion, he doesn't have the power to make decisions, he makes broad policy announcements that may or may not have the backing of his party and ultimately Congress. 

The President is not an all powerful demigod, he is the talking head for the Government and the party in power.

Trump didn't make the decision to repeal and replace Obamacare (he announced it), he didn't write the new legislation (the party did), he didn't vote the new legislation (Congress did), He wont be enacting the new legislation (the states and the Judiciary etc will do that).

 

The president conducts the orchestra, he doesn't write the music, he doesn't play the instruments, he doesn't do the musical arrangement, and he doesn't decide what the orchestra plays.

 

He can have a personal opinion about the Russia probe, as a conductor may have an opinion about people looking for the out of tune violinist in the orchestra.

Because he lied about just about everything he said he would do. He is a fraud. A liar. A poor executive with minimal skills for the job that's why.

You seem to have missed the obvious; part of this investigation surrounds whether or not the election was adversely influenced and whether Trump's actions are counter to his constitutional obligations.

Really?  Trump is doing the things he said he intended to do?  No major U-turns there?

Yes, if only the President had the power to stop legislation from passing.  Maybe we could call it the veto.  That would give him lots of leverage. If only the USA had a constitution and in that document he was given such a power.

calling it "the single greatest witch hunt" in U.S. history and a move that "hurts our country terribly."

 

1/ This guy obviously confuses the history of a country and his own, but then he confuses just about everything with everything else, so no big surprise here,

 

2/ To my knowledge the one thing that 'hurts our country terribly' at the moment is the Donald himself.

The ones being persecuted are the American public.   

... A significant percentage of whom must be masochists, then, since they elected their persecutor to his present position.

 

After only a hundred days of Trump-at-the-White-House, I wonder how many of those who voted for him are now biting their nails in anger, frustration and regret.

 

I do understand that a large proportion were just voting against Hillary, and I certainly don't blame them for that, but when you choose the devil to avoid the devil, you still end up electing the devil.
