Ex-FBI chief James Comey urges Americans to vote for Democrats in midterm elections

Quote:
Former FBI director and long-time Republican supporter James Comey is urging American voters to support Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

“This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must ... counteract ambition,’” Comey said in a tweet late Tuesday.

“All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us.”

Comey's ambition was checked by his boss, upon the recommendation of two of his supervisors.

Now he says all his bosses were wrong to fire him. Kind of ironic.

Another staunch never-Trump "republican" demonstrates his GOP cred. Maybe he should take George Will to dinner - they would have a lot to talk about.

Funny how the vulgarian Trump has exposed Comey for the unethical hack he is showing himself to be. I mean can you say Republican by convenience.

That is totally moronic and makes absolutely no sense. No rhyme, no reason you just relentlessly and irrationally attack the President. Please, if you insist on posting, at least try to be rational.

Birtherism - a fraud

Trump Derangement Syndrome - It's a real mental disease, and like other forms of addiction, it cannot be cured until the victim wants to be cured. Until that happens, those who suffer from TDS are compelled to say stupid $ht.

Trump Defend Syndrome - It's a real mental disease, and compels his followers to defend him no matter what absolute stupid $hit comes out of his mouth or how many Playmates he pays off. Since Trump is so off the wall and all over the place many will even abandon lifelong stances as if they were never there in defense of what he does.

I've gotten to the point that I don't care what he says because most of it is blown out of proportion. I wish he would shut up, but that's not going to happen.

I don't care what he did prior to the election as long as it wasn't illegal, bedding a Playmate or porn star and paying her off isn't illegal, and while it has moral consequences it has nothing to do with being President. Over the years, both parties have ignored moral lapses - some while they were in office.

However, I want a cheaper and smaller government and Trump is the 1st President in 35 years to attempt it. I hold the Congress liable for not doing more. I hold an activist Court system responsible for blocking things that HAVE been passed. Hopefully Kavanaugh can overcome those court blocks of implementation of smaller and cheaper government. Hopefully, Congress comes to its senses and Republicans start trimming government and eliminating wasteful spending and redistribution of wealth.

I think just one Playmate.

It is fun watching the mental gymnastics required by Alt Right/Evangelicals to support a man that is basically subservient to Putin and likely paid for a mistresses "forced" abortion. I guess your taxes went down and Hispanics are afraid to cross the border for fear their children will be kidnapped and abused. I guess it makes sense. God Bless Amurica.

What is said is always less important than what is done.

Stuff that doesn't matter, doesn't matter.

I don't think Democrat politicians really care about most of the things they attack Trump for. Many of them have said or done worse, and some of the governmental actions Trump has taken were exactly what Democrats advocated for just a short time ago.

Democrats are trying to strip Trump's support so they can beat him in 2020. That is all this is about. Anybody who believes different is being played.
There has been a continuous parade of charges, crisis, scandals, faux pas, etc. etc., most of them wildly exaggerated or just plain lies, and Trump's popularity doesn't diminish. Democrats don't understand why because they never have understood why Trump won.

No surprise here. Comey needs the Democrat lawmakers to save his @$$ when he's indicted for his crimes while in office. Clearly he's demonstrated he believes himself above the law. Anyone who votes according to Comey's recommendation is a dictionary definition of 'stupid.'

Well then, here is some more help.

Why? Because they don't think the way you think they should? Why are they not free to make their own decisions? Why do they have to fit some stereotype that you have invented?

He is either subservient to Putin or he isn't, there is no "basically" to it. Could Trump be the Manchurian candidate? People who live in a fantasy world or are easily fooled by propaganda think so.

First, I don't care. Second, "likely" means that you don't know. Why are you spreading salacious rumors? The truth isn't good enough?

If the abortion was indeed forced that is a criminal act, but the use of quotation marks means that the abortion was not really forced. If it was not forced why did you imply that it was? Why would you imply a criminal act when you know that is not true? Why are you spreading salacious rumors? The truth isn't good enough?

Why do guess? You know taxes went down. Most people think lower taxes are a good idea and appreciate the extra money in their pocket. I know Democrats do not because they have promised to raise taxes back to what they were. The Dems. new campaign slogan should really be "Higher Taxes for the People." I can understand why they might not want to be that honest though.

Why do you think Hispanics would be afraid of things that have never happened? Do you believe Hispanics are not very smart? That's seems kind of racist.

Nah, not really. The real conservatives and lifelong Republicans are speaking out. The Party of Trump is something, but neither of those.

Besides plenty of Dems and Indes switched to Trump also. Don't get your panties in such a twist. Just hard to watch the POTUS act like a 2 year old, lie after lie, and continue to lick Putin's boots given what we know and all the indictments.

Just like he was likely peed on by prostitutes in Moscow right

Yes policies are more important than silly tweets and press conferences.

On that note hard to see how he's subservient to Putin with many policies in opposition to Russia.

No they aren't. The ones speaking out are Democrat lite. It is good for the party to expose them.

And Comey says: " Policy differences don't matter right now."

It is my believe that is all that matters right now. The D's have gone so liberal that the good Democrats of the passed the one I just might of voted for are turning over in their graves. The D's are running on being against Trump and have given us little else to judge the party on. Now they seem to be nominating socialists to run for office and tell us these people are the future of the party. If turning the USA to a socialist country is the plan of the Democrats, I want nothing to do with them.

.
The funny thing SWMCinci is that back when Bill Clinton destroyed the standards governing PUBLICLY disclosed sexual impropriety in the white house democrats were thinking that this would be to their benefit. They must have figured that their candidates would be the ones most likely to have sexcapades in their background and that the GOP base would never tolerate one of their candidates getting a Lewinsky in the Oval Office!

So who would have thought that a republican candidate would be the one to get a pass on his sexual mores. By the democrat's reckoning Stormy should have destroyed Trump's presidency. Instead republicans yawned reducing the democrats to screeching "hypocrites" at the GOP base! Of course it doesn't help that not only don't we take the bait but we answer their shrieks with chants of SCOTUS, SCOTUS, SCOTUS!

This is a classic case of reaping what you sow!

Haven't plenty of people argued that there is no real difference between Democrats and Republicans, that what we need is a 3rd party? Comey is just confirming that it doesn't really matter.

So what do you suggest? If there are two primary candidates, and both are morally repugnant to your convictions, do you not get to vote?

I will decide when I will or will not vote. No mental gymnastics required.
