Appearing Monday on MSNBC, former chief of staff to President George W. Bush Andrew Card expressed support for the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump over his telephone call with the leader of Ukraine. A transcript is as follows: HALLIE JACKSON: Are Republicans cohesive enough in there messaging [on impeachment]? Do you that’s going to help or hurt the president? ANDREW CARD: I think it’s the president’s duty not to speak in hyperbole. I actually took his comment about China as a little bit frivolous and baiting.(Snip) I’ve called him a carnival barker. He wants you to come in the freakshow.

Comments:

Remember when we thought this classy crew was on the side of we the people?

Who cares what Card thinks, he was part of the wimpy Bush crew that the nasty Democrats kicked into the dirt 24/7 for years without any effective response.

I took Card's comments as unnecessary, frivolous, jealousy, and bitterness. These type of comments do nothing to promote success or harmony within our republic, and I suggest Card keep his dislikes to himself, and enjoy his retirement.

I have been able to keep my "No More Bushes" promise since my last vote for a Bush in 2004. (I live in Texas, and I've been able to vote against Nephew Bush [Jeb's son] since then and got to choose someone other than Jeb in the 2016 primary, our favorite son, Ted Cruz.)

Three grammatical errors in the first paragraph does not encourage further reading. The Bush era was very disappointing but we felt compelled to defend the man because we once thought he was one of us.

What is Card's opinion of Obama giving Iran billions of $$$ for ???? What's his opinion of the one sided 35 million $$ Mueller investigation? What's his opinion of the fake media & fake republicans constant trashing Trump? What's his opinion of the lowest unemployment in history? I guess the statement Bush made about not trashing a sitting president was only meant for Obama.

Andy Card is playing the same role as other "moderate" Republicans. His public statements are to show it's okay to be a "moderate" Republican and support PDT's potential impeachment...i.e. these going-nowhere continuous investigations. There will be others...like the lovely Laura Bush. Bet me.

Police in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue had a chance to get Carlos Daniel Carillo-Lopez, an illegal immigrant, off the streets in March—but a local jail defied a deportation notification request from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and released him into the community. Three weeks later, police say, the 19-year-old Guatemalan, eager to join the violent Surenos street gang, took part in a murder posse that tracked down and slew a teen from a rival gang.

Elizabeth, N.J.—A New Jersey man already serving a life term for planting bombs in New York City has been convicted of attempted murder and assault stemming from a shootout with police three years ago. Ahmad Khan Rahimi sat quietly during the reading of the verdicts Tuesday. Rahimi engaged police in a gun battle after they found him in Linden, New Jersey. He fired at several officers and was wounded himself. The jury deliberated over two days before convicting the Afghanistan-born naturalized U.S. citizen of all 30 counts. Rahimi’s attorney argued his client acted in self-defense.

Nancy Drew is on the case! But this time, the beloved teen detective is solving mysteries while having casual sex, dating an ex-con and—perhaps the most shocking twist of all—battling supernatural spooks. Premiering on The CW on Wednesday, “Nancy Drew” is the latest take on the young-adult classic. Gritty, dark and salacious, it’s more like the sexy teen drama “Riverdale” than “The Secret of the Old Clock,” the 1930 tale that launched the almost 90-year-old series. In other words, this isn’t your mom’s—or your grandma’s—Nancy Drew. But it may not be further off

Dick’s stopped selling AR-15s after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012 but took it a step further after the 2018 Parkland high school shooting, raising the gun purchase age to 21 and banning the sale of high-capacity magazines and assault-style rifles.

The FBI has confirmed that a senior citizen who has murdered at least 50 people is the most prolific serial killer in US history–and the law enforcement agency is turning to the public for help identifying more victims. Samuel Little, 79, has confessed to killing 93 victims–mostly women—between 1970 and 2005, the FBI said Sunday. Investigators have confirmed Little’s involvement in 50 homicides, and FBI crime analysts believe all of his confessions are credible. Many of his victims’ deaths were initially ruled overdoses or attributed to accidental or undetermined causes, and some bodies were never found, the FBI said.
