I've never understood why so many have been praising and worshipping a Republican anyway

Mueller is a lifelong Republican. Everytime I mentioned that I was told over and over "yes he is, but he's different".

We don't know what's in the report. All we know is how Washington is reacting. And I don't see a reaction that reflects a President on his way out.

Time will tell. But I think the worship of Republican Mueller will be a little less over the coming days and weeks.

1. I guess it's all a matter of whose ox is being gored, isn't it?

According to Trump he's a compromised Democrat.

2. Out of hope that he'd choose country over party

Did he? We don't know yet.

We'll eventually find out.

4. He's a lifelong fed...

 

He's a lifelong fed... who chose to go into combat in a losing war at a time when someone with his background could have easily opted out (as many did).

I believe that level of commitment demonstrates something about the man.

Whether my belief will be justified remains to be seen.

6. I hope so

but my hope is wearing really thin these days.

There appear to be no norms anymore.

There are always norms; there's a question about how those who choose to violate those norms are treated.

Stand fast.

3. I think some people

I think some people and at other places are maybe gullible. Then there some that are probably right-wingers. Boast a republican up and then when something comes out, they would say, "well you said he was a good guy".

I was just being a realist and history of Mueller and the dirty pos Baar. Seen that coming years ago.

5. Sometimes a label is just a label.

In our two party system, if you are going to serve in leadership in government, one has to be one party or the other.

I simply don't see individuals like Mueller or Comey as partisans.

I don't worship Mueller, but I'm not concerned that he will have let the Republican label keep him from doing his duty.

7. Would the result be different if Mueller was a Dem? I think not.

Publican: ancient Latin for tax collector.

10. He believes in the rule of law and took down mobsters. No one "worships" him

here AFAIK. He has a rep as a straight shooter.

Honestly none of us know what’s in the report yet besides Muellers team and Barr.

It will all come out eventually though.

13. Agreed. He has demonstrated integrity in the past

That over rules party affiliation for me.
