BRADLEY R. GITZ: The party crack-up

By Bradley R. Gitz

This article was published February 19, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

American politics is being pushed to the brink by Donald Trump's persistently unpresidential behavior and the hysterical reaction to that behavior (and to his presidency in general) on the part of the "resistance."

ROTFL @ Gitz. And you look at this spectacle as if you're NOT a part of it? Give me a break. I'll admit I'm in the partisan camp AGAINST Trump, but your view from the sidelines is laughable. Just admit you're as much a part of the Trump camp as I'm a part of what you call "the resistance."

Handle today’s online chatter. It’s different than your Dad’s day Gitz and people organize and speak freely. What’s on the ground is a whole different story. More to your liking. From an independent; if organizing groups that highlight cop brutality and assault of women and seek to stop it is your idea of crazy liberals you need more real world experience. I notice this movement is grounded in police report and police video publicly available to draw your own conclusion. Your conclusion is so judgmental, it makes the column funny unintentionally. I think parties are changing without you. Yes, they will stay GOP and Dem.
They are all electing to change a bit and you are the one hysterical.

Agreed RBear. Gitz, I will provide you with two quotes from this weekend that should tell you how 2018 and 2020 will go. First, from Ted Cruz, who I am paraphrasing: 'Trump's behavior will have anyone who has even leaned democrat crawling over broken glass to vote against him.' Second, from David Gergen, who has served in the White House under five different presidents from both parties: "This reminds me of the last days of the Nixon White House." The end may in fact be near.

A reality check for bedwetting libs:
You cannot have my guns including my AR-15.
Illegals are illegal.
Americans are very happy about Trump's tax cuts.
There was no collusion.
Hillary lost, Trump won.

Pretty good column Bradley, not likely but it would be great to see another party emerge and shed the far right and far left.

Pack what poll suggests Americans are very happy with the tax cuts? Your right wing beer drinking poll?

them nazi are bad, but the commies are g-dless and worse.

as usual, even when PG or the ADG chastise Trump, some dig somewhere is made against others.

Parties made up of talking mammals of course have their down moments and individuals do exceed the normal stupid limits from time to time, but there is a big difference handling a rattlesnake like the gop and a king snake like the democrats.

There are more knives than guns, what is the total knife death count yearly.

Some say you cant kill with a AR-15 if you dont have one.

gitz and Sir Kelly channel long dead prophets who saw visions , read your ancient books and see how many prophesies actually happened.

Packman, no one asked for your AR-15, but if it were banned, I am pretty sure it would be removed from you by whatever force is necessary, being that illegal means illegal. As for illegal aliens, yes they are illegal, but I want them to stay, which is why I want congress to fix it. They are vital to the economy in Arkansas. I am happy about the tax cut. I just want the GOP to explain to me if deficits matter or not. And it remains to be seen if there was collusion / conspiracy or not. Trump is awfully paranoid for a man who proclaims to be innocent. I will let Muller and the grand jury have the final word on that. And it is clear that Russia interfered with the election, making it possible, but unknowable, that Trump won with the direct help of that interference.
