    The problem with that: The President doesn't doesn't get to decide who is investigated and prosecuted.

    There is supposed to be independence in both the FBI and the Justice Department. And there is still an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation. (It's a b/s one, prompted by Congressional meddling, but still.)

    The FBI and Justice Department shouldn't interfere in elections (hear that, Director Comey?) and politicians don't interfere in the course of Justice (hear that Donald Trump?)

    It was probably what they secretly agreed on all along. :cool:

    On election night, I figured he was done with it when he said in his speech that the whole country owed her a debt of gratitude for her service.

    Do you really think that Obama via Lynch didn't have a say in whether Comey brought charges against Hillary in the first place? The AG serves at the will and pleasure of the President. They do something the President doesn't like, they get fired.

    Donald: "Now if the four of us do this, we're gonna need a safe word, how about, 'President Elect Trump'?"

    Bill: "Hahaha, Don, you crazy sumbitch, this would be the only time you'll ever hear that ... who am I kidding, you won't even hear it tonight, I'm all in!"

    Donald said everything and anything to get votes. Not unlike most politicians. But his nastiness was to rile up his base - his "movement."

    I sincerely wonder how much that same group will love Donald's actual Presidency. Time will tell.

    This is the $3 question. Who will be more upset at the Trump administration. His supporters or detractors.

    Concur with both. It will be most fascinating and the reason I made the post.

    I could give a rat's ass what Donald "walks back." I never trusted a word out of his bombastic mouth and I have zero positive expectations out of his presidency. As such, I can't really be disappointed. My disappointment, my 'butt hurt' as some like to put it, was experienced and resolved within 48 hours of the election.

    I'm truly interested in seeing how his supporters react, accept, accommodate, rationalize the growing discrepancy between who Donald was, and who he is becoming.

    As long as he is not Hillary Clinton, it matters not.

    Actually, they'll look around and remember it was Clinton who was the other choice. They'll blame her for not winning. We're looking at four years of hearing about how anybody could have beat Trump like a dusty carpet and yet Clinton couldn't get the job done, trust a Clinton to mess up the simplest job. Yada yada. She's down but not forgotten as piñata. O patria mia... :rolleyes:

    BTW - one of the other screaming points was about pay for play with the Clinton Foundation. And now we hear from foreign dignitaries who are going to stay at Trump's DC hotel to gain favor with Trump.

    So there's that. But no outrage from Trump supporters, I'm sure. I'm sure it's COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

    Exactly. If a Trump voter could be truly honest with themselves, they would agree that it came down to voting for the right genitalia.

    Most conservatives have a fetish for Margaret Thatcher, and now for Theresa May, and no conservative said that "there's a special hell for women that vote HRC," while the opposite is true.
    Please, don't be offensive to the intelligence of PRSI contributors. The campaign is over.

    Please don't kid yourself to think that there isn't a double standard. "It was just locker room talk" took the cream of the crop. Or sit in your bubble and pretend that you are so above it.

    This is ridiculous. Campaign is over, and I have to read this crap.
    It doesn't count that I read books that you wouldn't even be able to hold in your hands let alone read, it doesn't count that I actively study government, US history, bureaucracy, political science, macroeconomics (not as much as I would like), that I work in government, read bios of great American thinkers (do you even know who Kennan is?) or great Americans/statesmen in general and I am incredibly active in my community.
    No, it doesn't matter to you is because you are so sure that I didn't vote for HRC because she's a woman (though I wanted Condi Rice, but that doesn't matter to you I guess). Get off your soapbox; that's why HRC lost, not because of her DNA.

    Most people here - on both sides - are serious. Again, you're offending most contributors.

    Maybe that's not an explicitly enumerated power of the president, but c'mon man. By way of appointment, the president gets to "hire and fire" both the Attorney General and Director of the FBI. And beyond that there is also political pressure and political capital. You write many of the most intelligent posts in this forum, you must know this.

    You don't have to read it. That is the beauty of the internet. Was I supposed to be impressed?

    No, you're supposed to be respectful of other's choices.

    Using a thesaurus and being garrulous does not necessarily equate to intelligence.
