James Comey, through it all, was a consistent and presumptuous man, leaving havoc and irony in the wake of his noble intentions.

Tragic error? I doubt that we'd be seeing this booming economy with the Fainting Felon in the presidency.

Spot on assessment of Comey and his actions. All he had to do was keep his mouth shut about having reopened the email investigation. Perhaps it wouldn’t have changed the outcome. Perhaps it would have.

People didn't vote against Hillary because of Comey. People voted against Hillary because of Hillary.

The morally, ethically, and intellectually bankrupt coward in the White House has nothing to do with the economy. POTUS never does, regardless of who it is, up or down. And I get that people voted against Hillary because of their hatred for her, but can you honestly say that this dumpster fire of an administration, who has the world laughing at us or plotting revenge against us, is the better alternative?

mozzy, this 2nd placed popular vote getting POTUS is not responsible for this economy. That blue ribbon belongs to President Obama. Some of those that voted for this POTUS have already had their financial futures touched in a negative way by this current POTUS and have expressed their wish that they had used their vote to vote for the other major party candidate. Some of the voters of the POTUS just haven't woke up yet, but rest assured many of them will also be awakened by other blunders of his financial games.

The Comey blunder was only one of many reasons that Hillary lost. The hacking of the DNC emails and the resulting debategate--i.e. knowledge that Donna Brazile had fed debate questions to John Podesta, Hillary's Campaign chair, was another nail in the coffin of Hillary's presidential chances. I am glad that CNN fired Brazile, but I note that she is still allowed on MSNBC and she and Podesta are treated with respect, which I find outrageous. The way Debbie Wasserman Schultz limited primary debates in a manner to hurt Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley also reinforced Hillary's image of being heavy handed. Hillary surrounded herself with wealthy easterners and Californians and wore expensive pantsuits and fancy hairstyles. I voted for her and gave her money, but her campaign was just awful. The 2020 Democratic nominee needs to be somebody untainted by scandal and down to earth. We need a fresh new face.

I agree with D2. People voted against Hillary because of Hillary. And if this guy wasn't shamelessly hawking his book I might be inclined to be a bit more sympathetic to his cause.

None of us can know where our road leads, but at least we get to choose the intentions that pave it.

Hillary voters blame Comey for Hillary's loss yet are making the guy rich buying his book. Can they possibly be any more useful of useful idiots?
.
"....yes, Trump fired the man who probably elected him". Nope. Over 60 million people elected Donald Trump having favored him over Hillary for many reasons none having to do with James Comey. Or did Comey force Hillary to call millions of Americans "deplorable", ignore Wisconsin, and set up an off the grid communication device in contempt of the rule of law? But wait, libs say it was Putin that convinced her to do all those things. Damn, I wish they would make up their minds.
.
Sadly, it seems somewhere along the way James Comey changed from being a decent law enforcement guy to a petulant narcissist consumed with self-importance and by all accounts a criminal (Comey admitted to breaking the law by leaking documents to his college professor buddy, among other things.).
.
President Trump is correct. James Comey will go down in history as the worst FBI director of all time. That's just sad considering at one time Comey was a pretty decent guy.

moz actually we would. Trump is only a maintenance president and the economy was booming well before he took office. I know that's hard for you to fathom (notice I didn't call you a "moron" like you've called others), but it's a verifiable fact.
...
Pack there were a multitude of factors that contributed to Hillary's loss. I know that baffles some Trumpsters, but it does require being able to correlate multiple points of information together. But Comey is right. President Trump will go down as one of the worst presidents in recent history.
