Dispute Over Russia Reflects Growing Republican Resistance To Trump


I say that Trump is going to be the final nail in the coffin of the GOP.
They deserve it.
In order to avoid an ordinary defeat, the GOP has put into the White House an unstable moron who appears to be in a de facto alliance with enemies of the nation. 
I abhor the influence of the extremist left on the Dems, but I'm now the sworn enemy of the GOP forever.

I've been the sworn enemy of the GOP since Mitch Mconell said his only goal was to make Obama a one term president. As for the extremist left, an analogy I use. The peace movement started to get America out of the Vietnam war. A clear goal, with passionate people in charge. Within a year it was hijacked and became the 'hippy' movement, and would be forever tarred as the free love, free drugs, anti-America group. At the height of its popularity no democrat in power would be seen with them.
Fast forward to the tea party. Straight forward goals and grievances. Stagnant wages, income inequality, etc., and then they were hijacked by those with political motivations (such as the Kochs). But the republicans were not only seen with them, but courted them. If anything I wrote is wrong please let me know, I haven't researched it exhaustively, but that's my view of things. The Republicans have made this bed and are dragging the rest of us to hell with them.

(Part of this argument was laid out in the HBO show the Newsroom, and everything I've read since then seems to back it up).

Yeah, I swore I was an eternal enemy of the GOP after they tried to steal the 2000 election. Then again after they lied us into Iraq. But as I became more and more concerned about the influence of identity politics and the illiberal left on the Dems, I started backsliding...hoping that the GOP might evolve into a sane conservative counterweight...

That, of course was stupid.

And, like you, I think that the pledge to thwart Obama at all costs is another good reason to swear enmity to the bastards.

..or the fact that the GOP has filibustered 500 bills since 2007-- many of which would have helped the middle class-- which is tied to the "keep Obama out of office" sentiment.

And then the spin on the narrative to claim that Obama is a tyrant for bypassing Congress via executive orders, and that he is responsible for all the social divisiveness because he doesn't care about the middle class.

Insidious, I say, insidious.
