In a vacuum, failing to impeach for political reasons is just about as bad as impeaching for political reasons.

The decision to impeach should solely be based on whether an impeachable offense was committed. Putting policy or political calculations in there wrong. You shouldn't keep a known criminal in office just because the guy next up would be more effective at pushing an undesirable agenda. Or because you see the criminal as a better opponent in a future election.

However, I'd say the above only applies in a vacuum. If we're in a situation where the two teams are not really playing by the same rules, then I might be OK letting this one slide.

Don’t impeach Trump... I am pretty convinced Pence is worse.

Give me a break. This is just stupid.

Any sane human would snap take pence over trump.

Pence is a standard awful republican, not an existential threat to humanity as a whole like Trump.

Yep, the only crack in the armor I found with my "favorite RWNJ" is from medicare cuts. (She won't crack but still) It should be in every ****ing commercial.

Drug bust finds 3,200 pounds of cocaine in Newark port, undercutting Trump's claims that we need a wall to stop drugs

Yeah the tilting part of all of this is we could provide an exemplary higher education for everything AND universal healthcare and there would be no sizable tax increases. Taxes would be the same Pollyanna game as always. These are programs we could successfully pay for now AND still maintain a military to protect us.

Politicians are stealing everyone’s future to pad their present pockets. Firing squads have to at least be debated when all these comes to a boiling point.

Trump budget that calls for cutting medicare and other social programs. Those cuts probably won't get through. Calls for an increase to the war budget? That'll pass.

If there was a wall in El Paso, how could those drugs get to Newark? I think like a president.

I think Trump is probably worse, but the fact that Pence would believe that the life and times of Donald J Trump was directly ordained by God to allow him to pass all the GOP evil stuff he wants is a scary thought.

The whole culture of coastal people with money is so disgusting. What a sad, empty existence.
