Rethug talking point by none other than freshman NY Democrat Max Rose. Are you kidding me?

“There’s far too much work left to be done and we are in danger of losing the trust of the American people if we choose partisan warfare over improving the lives of hardworking families,” wrote New York Rep. Max Rose, a Democratic freshman, in a Friday op-ed in the Staten Island Advance newspaper."

Impeaching the absolute most corrupt, incompetent, barely literate, greedy, threat to national security asshole president ever is "partisan warfare"?!?!!!

This is disgusting to me. Talk about mixed messaging, protecting your seat vs. the Rule of Law and the Constitution, talking like a republican, etc. I'm sure Fox News would love to book you Max...

Rep. Max Rose: Why I oppose Trump impeachment
Updated Sep 13, 2019; Posted Sep 12, 2019

snip//

Let me be clear, we have made real progress this year, including permanently extending and fully funding the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, passing the most sweeping anti-corruption legislation in a generation, and bipartisan gun safety reforms.

But there’s far too much work left to be done and we are in danger of losing the trust of the American people if we choose partisan warfare over improving the lives of hardworking families. I made a promise to my constituents to focus on making their lives better, and I won’t break it.

There is no doubt that this Administration is one of the most corrupt in history. From taxpayer dollars propping up Trump Organization properties to the mass exodus of Administration officials who have been forced to resign, are facing serious ethical investigations, or have sped through the revolving door to become federal lobbyists for the same industries they oversaw. It’s clear as day, the swamp is alive and thriving.

But pursuing a partisan impeachment process won’t address any of those serious issues. The truth is impeachment will only tear our country further apart and we will see no progress on the enormous challenges we face as a nation. Impeachment will not fix our roads and bridges or lower the costs of drugs. Impeachment will not keep our kids safe from gun violence or end the opioid epidemic. Impeachment will not improve the lives of the hardworking Staten Islanders and South Brooklynites that I fight for every day.

9. Is he asleep or something?

"Impeachment will not fix our roads and bridges or lower the costs of drugs. Impeachment will not keep our kids safe from gun violence or end the opioid epidemic."

Yeah, neither will Moscow Mitch. Oh right, that's too "divisive" calling him "Moscow Mitch"

Won’t agree to anything to help families. Partisan warfare on Justice Beer might help preserve our right

5. Staten Island is a pretty red section of NYC.

Its a purplish-splot in an otherwise deep blue city. He has to be a moderate to survive. His constituents demand it.

He could have just kept his mouth shut.

10. Cool, so when the seat flips to R in the next election you can not care about that either.

Politics is a careful tightrope to walk. We need every seat we can get in the House to overcome a decade of Republican gerrymandering. Bomb throwing will only diminish the party and any Liberal/Progressive agenda.

11. IMO, there are so many things wrong with your response. I don't respond to absolutes when you

have no idea if the seat would flip or not.

I must remind you that my bone of contention was NOT the fact that he's anti-impeachment as much as the over the top rethug/Fox News talking point of "partisan warfare" when it has to do with trump.

Add the intelligence insulting part where he implied we should focus on great legislation when we know Mitch won't pass it. Not to mention, he insinuates Democrats can't walk and chew gum at the same time.

So you believe it is ok for a House Democrat to call what Nadler and the Judiciary Committee are trying to accomplish to sway public opinion "partisan warfare". THAT is diminishing the party.
