Some random thoughts on some random subjects in the New Year
Dick Yarbrough
Whether you support Donald Trump or think he is guilty of nefarious deeds regarding Ukraine, he is not going to be removed from office unless Republicans have a death wish. This, despite ponderous pontifications by liberals that at least 10 Republicans senators will turn on him and provide a constitutional majority for removal. Right now, I see only Mitt Romney, who probably would like to run for president (again), and a couple of others so inclined. This is all about the 2020 election. Trump is his own worst enemy with intemperate tweets and unnecessary insults. The fact is the stock market is at an all-time high and unemployment is at historic lows. He has gotten China to the table on tariff issues that should have been addressed a long time ago and he made a charcoal briquette out of a jive-talking Iranian terrorist intent on doing us harm. Were this Barack Obama or Bill Clinton, the national media would be wetting itself.
