    I've said all along that 2022 will be decided on what Biden and the Democratic controlled congress do or don't do. If they make independents angry at them, they'll lose the...

    The first wasn't, this one won't either. Those senators who vote against conviction won't pay any price. Most are from solid Republican states that went for Trump. They can say...

    Very possible. I have a habit of viewing these things from a historical viewpoint of what happened prior. But with Trump, history and historical wisdom can be thrown out the...

  4. perotista liked Quantum Nerd's post in the thread Republican party IS TRUMP’s party!!!!.

    45 out of 50 GOP Senators just voted that the impeachment trial is unconstitutional. I'd say it will take a lot longer than 6 months for the GOP to rid itself of Trumpism.

    During a president tenure, his party is always his party. The GOP was Trump's party, the Democrats were Obama's party, The Republicans were Bush's party while during Bill...

    I think the whole thing is irrelevant as you can't remove someone from an office he no longer holds. I've said all along that if these folks think Trump is guilty of sedition...

  7. perotista replied to the thread Justice Roberts: Hell No! I Won't Go! To The Senate Impeachment "Trial".

    I wouldn't read into it. Roberts was sick and tired of all the partisan stuff thrown at him in the first impeachment trial by both sides. He wants to keep the SCOTUS as much as...

    If you're a political realist you would realize that none of this will have any effect on the 2022 midterms let alone 2024. It will all be ancient history, other hot issues,...

    Negative, the Constitution states and I quote, "When the president of the United States is tried, the chief justice shall preside." Rather simple isn't it. The president of the...

    I've heard that time and time again. But unless Trump is convicted, there will be no second vote to deny Trump from running again. The senate can only have that second vote on...

    From what I have been reading, there were 3-5 GOP senators that probably would vote to convict, another handful of maybe's while Trump was still president. Now that Biden is...
