    Poles aren't that fond of Russians, anyway.

    Just let this sink in for a moment............

    -------------------------------------------------------

    FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday said President Trump hasn’t directed him to stop Russian efforts to interfere in this year’s midterm elections.

    “We’re taking a lot of specific efforts to blunt Russian efforts,” Wray said when Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) asked if he’d been directed by Trump to do so.

    “As directed by the president?” Reed interjected.

    “Not as specifically directed by the president,” Wray responded.

    I don't know how the Democrats aren't just HAMMERING the administration on them deciding not to go forward with sanctions that were approved overwhelmingly by both houses of congress.

    A phrase that rhymes with "Trucking wussies" comes to mine.

    it's mind boggling. Trump uses Twitter to do this why the hell don't the Dems do the same thing both on Twitter and on live tv? CNN loves to give Dems a platform to talk on, why are they not all on there hammering that point home, the POTUS, who is being investigated for possible collusion with Russia, is refusing to take action on approved sanctions because he doesn't think they're necessary.

    it's nuts, his own people are openly stating Russia interfered and will try again, and he's off playing golf.

    I've seen plenty of discussions on CNN about Russia and the sanctions (or lack thereof). There are just so many other daily scandals going on as well that airtime for topics is fragmented. But really, if Adam Schiff were to hammer away on this topic everyday for hours on end screaming from the rafters, I would bet folks inclined to support Trump would become even MORE sympathetic to him. It is a strange phenomenon, the more you preach the truth the more they embrace the lies.

    Plenty of people know about the Russian insanity. We just have to freaking get out the vote in the mid terms because a strong majority think what is going on is completely nuts. IMO, gerrymandering and other Republican cheating schemes are a much bigger problem than Dems not being aggressive enough. At least Pennsylvania is doing something about it.

    But the people who support Drumpf will always support him. It's the soft right that can be changed, as we have seen in some 36 state house races the left has taken over.

    Oh totally. That's kinda my point that some on this board are being a little too critical about Dems not being aggressive enough. Plenty of folks see what's going on and it's been showing at the ballot box. Just gotta keep getting out the vote in the midterms.
