Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way!

Last edited Sun Apr 21, 2019, 01:15 PM - Edit history (1)

Waiting for a majority of Americans to back impeachment is the opposite of leadership.

I'm not necessarily talking about Pelosi. But Hoyer comes to mind. I think Mueller and McGann should go on the record before the Judiciary Committee first.

But this "not worthwhile" business is weak. This is not the time for weakness.

12. We all must follow our consience

And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

10. We must do something possible.

It is insane to attempt the impossible with the rethugs controlling the Senate.

11. These are times in which we all must stand up and be counted

If the Republicans want history to record that they shirked their duty to their country let them. But if we do the same then we are unworthy of the Republic we were given.

5. I don't like the immediately discounting impeachment. ..

 

Why not, "We have a lot of work ahead of us when we get back" or "our committee chairpersons will be looking into all aspects of the report and how to go forward". There is no need to throw water on the idea. That sounds rigid, foolish, and not open to discussion. It doesn't sound like representative government to me. It sounds like "get off my yard!"

6. The proper rhetoric is is a concise, "Nothing is off the table." Ignore calls to elaborate.

How hard is that?

9. Exactly, I don't expect it

right this second, but it would be nice for them to stop signalling that they are just fine with him getting away with everything.
