    Geraldo Rivera has to be happy that the vault he opened back in the 80s is no longer the biggest sad trombone moment in live television.

    I'm still waiting on quite a few things Obama promised. Hell, I'm still waiting on things Reagan promised. You may have time to do a lot of knitting while Obama is looking to find the right pair of shoes. Long enough to knit a complete wardrobe.

    Let me suggest another lens to view the administrations antics through.

    Imagine a president trying to implement a sea change in a whole raft of policies. Against his doing so is the entire Democratic leadership, half the Republican leadership, the entirety of the traditional media, an entrenched bureaucracy, and half the country, all of whom seem to want to see him fail. Any mistake, misstep or perceived weakness is poured into the echo chamber and amplified.

    Those opposed to the changes, particularly those in the media need to start asking themselves "What if he succeeds?"

    No government is perfect. And never will be, because it involves people. Because it is imperfect, I firmly believe that we need as little of it as possible.

    I believe my eyes, I just haven't seen ANY evidence of malfeasance. If I've missed it, please show me proof of corruption, Russians, or anything else that the #resist crowd is on about. A different political agenda is in play. No matter how much half the country dislikes it, it's not criminal. It's what the other half of the country lived with for two terms. We will survive, and if Trump is successful, we will thrive.

    Smoke is proof of nothing when you have an entrenched power structure armed with matches and an agenda.

    Here's how to create smoke. Somebody in a 3-letter agency calls up WaPo and says Trump likes furry porn. WaPo headlines it. NYT says "According to published reports, 17 intelligence agencies agree, Trump is a furry porn lover." CNN/MSNBC interrupts coverage and says Trump is too busy looking as furry porn to run the country. Buzzfeed runs "The trouble with Trumps porn addiction". The CTR and Shareblue brigades post variations of "Trump is a pervert". Late night talk show hosts run monologues on furries. SNL does a skit. 3 days later, on page 57, WaPo runs a one-sentence retraction. No one else does. That gets piled into the innuendo heap.

    The media is deranged, and every piece that starts with unproven assumptions and does nothing but pass on more innuendos isn't journalism. except perhaps of the yellow sort.

    I hope there are enough real journalists left that they can be a watchdog on the government. That should be their damn job. But all we've had for the last 8 years is cheerleaders. Now they are sad, angry, and lashing out in their grief that Obama didn't get that 3rd term after all. Their implosion is amusing to watch, in a sad sort of way.

    FTA: "But the people who said all through the campaign that the rules changed with the elevation of Donald Trump cannot say that the rules are back now that he's president."

    Intellectually dishonest. He's supposed to leave the previous administrations prosecutors in place? The appointees that got their jobs because they supported a radically different agenda?

    FTA: "In addition, what he did on Friday was precipitous in the extreme and so much so that it seems to have been improvised on the spot>

    The author is claiming insider knowledge of the working of the WH? He doesn't know whether there are lists of replacement candidates, but because it hasn't been announced, he goes hysterical.

    It has been determined going in that trump is corrupt. Anything he does, regardless of whether it's been done by previous administrations, goes to "prove" it.

    He's stupid and reactionary. And at the same time, an evil Machiavellian genius that going to hand over the country to the Russians. Or something.

    Could it be, and I’m only raising this as a possibility to consider, that there may be issues around ignorance, prejudice, racism and corruption in this administration?

    Raising questions and providing no proof is how the MSM slanders people. Show me proof of ignorance, racism, or corruption. because this piece doesn't. It takes a normal action and piles it on the innuendo that the MSM has been pushing since the RNC nomination.

    Could it be that AdelleChattre cheats on his/her taxes? I'm just raising questions.

    See how that works?

    Ok, I'll bite. Replacing US attorneys goes back to at least the Reagan era. Every president since has replaced all, or almost all of the other parties appointments. Reagan, and both Bushs spread out the replacement process somewhat, Clinton, Obama and Trump fired them all at once. Where is the corruption?

    I think Mr Pierce has fallen victim to TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). His past good works (of which I cannot judge) mean nothing in this case. He's outraged at something that goes back almost 40 years that all sides have done.

    The MSM's candidate lost and they are losing their minds over it. Nazis! Russians! Corruption! Racism! If they shout loud enough, long enough, maybe they can make it true.

    Keep manufacturing outrage based on innuendo, half truths, and outright lies and no one is going to believe you if/when something worthy of outrage actually happens.

    He fired Obama's attorneys. Obama fired Bush's, but he somehow did it better or different or something. Another trash hit piece from an increasingly irrelevant MSM who's preferred candidate lost.

    WaPo and a CIA press release are the only 2 places that are more untrustworthy than NYT on anything related to the CIA.

    CNN comes close though.

    Easy? Maybe in principle. Not so much in practice.

    About as easy as convincing lifers to vote for term limits. Or really reforming campaign finance.

    You're asking both parties to give up safe districts. (And the lifers in those safe districts to change the status quo) You're asking the Congressional Black Caucus to give up majority-minority districts.

    Any change that favors one party, or is perceived that it might favor one party is dead out of the gate.

    Find a dozen truly neutral people who would be interested to do it that don't have an agenda. That all parties would agree to. They can't even agree who won the last presidential election.

    Neither party wants to give up its safe districts, the only problem they have with gerrymandering is the other party's safe districts.

    Or, maybe he got ahead of the media boycott by cancelling before CNN, WaPo,, NYT etc. could say they wouldn't attend.

    Keep attacking his supporters instead of him or his policies. Because it's worked so well so far.

    It depends on health. Adding more years without adding a longer period pf decent health is pointless, you are right,But if we can make 75 the new 55, then great.
