Obama’s economy was doing well until the orange douchebag started his tariff war. . .anytime now another Great Depression could hit the globe and us with complete fuckwits in charge!

Regardless of who occupies the White House, the US Financial Markets expect the economy to accomplish levels they expect......not what the US Government or World organizations hopes for. So contrary to your obvious personal opinions, the US Financial Markets rate their expectations based on the corporations they represent, & financial markets will fluctuate if their published expectations are missed, just met, or exceeded.

As far as Obama's Policies......those policies were totally purged within 6 months of the final 2016 US Election results. Since then, the Trump Administration has controlled the catalysts that affects the US Economy......that is, unless you can cite 'specific' policies that would project otherwise......key word here is 'specific', not a list unverifiable generalities.

In all fairness the community organizer from, & no-show Senator from, Chicago didn't have a clue on developing National economic policy.....but you're entitled to your own personal opinions. BHO had trouble balancing his own personal checking & savings accounts, & Michelle was of no help.

If you say what I stated is a "load of shit", why don't you enlighten us all exactly....with specifics, not generalities.....how I am wrong.....& then, once you think you've done that Smitty boy......further enlighten us with your Australian version of the facts.....again, without generalities....but tell us all specifically how the American Process of Presidential Transition works.......how a new Administration functions during a clearly defined transition of power.

See the response I gave to LilJohnnySmith above........

Now, remove the word 'can't' in your statement I quoted above & replace it with 'won't'..........or if you so wish you may insert 'flatly refuse to' instead.....the choice is yours & yours alone. :hlo

That said, I can name more than a few, but I'm not going to......I suggest you use google, & I'm sure you will find all you seek & then some.

Breaking the law.

He asked a foreign country to help him with his own political career.

He asked them to get dirt on his opponent, and threatened to withhold funding for military aid until they provided it to him.

The Yank forum where I am also an active member is full of threads about the impeachment.

All of them bore me to death. I don't even comment on them.

Why?

Because everything is so predictable. And so I will make the following predictions:

- The hearings are all for show. It's a forgone conclusion that the House will eventually pass articles of impeachment on a purely partisan vote.
- The Senate will ignore the House. It may not even conduct a trial.
- The only real outcome of the House Democrats obsessive, zombie-like pursuit of this President will be the destruction of the reputation of one of their leading candidates for President. No one even heard of Burisma, or Hunter Biden's appointment to their board, or his salary, or Joe Biden's involvement, or any of that until the Democrats, forced to give up on their "Russia, Russia, Russia" mantra, jumped to the "Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine" mantra without even a thought to the consequences.

And while the House remains in their hypnotic trance, they will accomplish exactly zero for the American people.

The President might lose the election in 2020, but he will not be removed from office by impeachment. Not a chance.

And so, the upcoming election is interesting to me. But the impeachment charade is utterly boring to me, and I'm hardly even paying attention to it.

I can imagine a yank forum being full of impeachment threads.

Trumpy’s successor will have a lot of work to do undoing the crap Trumpy pulled as POTUS. We will be lucky to avoid another global recession.

@SethBullock

I agree 110%.

As I stated a while back, I expect.....even called for it....welcomed it........So, I expect that because the demon-RATS are in control of the House, that the President will surely be Impeached......even though a short while ago.....Pelosi, Schiff, & Nadler all agreed that unless the findings are bipartisan, the outcome of removing the President is sure to fail......Why?.....well even if there were, which there isn't.....but even if there were bipartisan support in the House of Representatives for the Articles of Impeachment (to date not one single Republican has signed on to this farce - making it a 100% Partisan Exercise), so getting 20 Republicans to jump ship in the Senate so the 'enemy' can attain a Super-Majority, & commit political suicide by voting for their President's removal in an Election Year, will be harder to achieve than finding a dump truck full of hens teeth with a drunk Easter Bunny at the wheel using her mobile phone.

I too tuned in to watch a bit of the demon-RAT 'charade', but I quickly became bored to tears, & realized that I had far better things to do than waste my time watching a predictable, foregone conclusion, much less than talking about it on a bulletin board to people who's observations (except for yours) on the subject are even more predictable than the House Impeachment 'conclusions' themselves.

Undoing what crap?

I can think of a lot of things I don't want undone, but I'll spare you ... for now.

I don't even watch the hearings. I don't read the myriad threads on the Yank forum, and I don't comment on them.

I do scan the news, so I have a general idea of what's happening, but I just have no interest because I already know what's going to happen as I stated before. Plus, I just can't stand the political grandstanding and hypocrisy of it all.

I prefer to discuss candidates in the upcoming election and the issues of the day. Recently, I've discussed gun control, what South Korea pays us for keeping troops there, and a Democratic candidate named Tulsi Gabbard. But the impeachment crap? Almost nothing. I think I commented recently that I was bored with it all, just like I did here, and that's about it for that topic.

So, it looks like Trump is gonna take the coward's way out (again).

Gonna pay off his doctors (like Daddy did, when he didn't want to go to Vietnam) to say that his heart condition is getting worse, and that the only way to avoid an early death is to resign from the White House.

He'll do a deal with Pence to make sure he's pardoned for his crimes, and then probably move to another country.

I've never seen such a coward in all my life.

I reckon it is his only way out, but he never does what anyone expects. I reckon the Articles of Impeachment will be.

1. Obstruction of Congress (instructing witnesses to not give evidence.)
2. Using US taxpayer funds as leverage to gain a personal, political election advantage (Zelensky/Biden.)
3. Publicly maligning a serving veteran, highly-respected/regarded career US Ambassador (Yovanovitch) totally needlessly with demeaning, denigrating, defamatory and false allegations, including privately (initially) with the newly elected President of Ukraine. (Zelensky/the transcript/the tweet......erosion of confidence/morale within the State Department.)

It astounds me how he's allowed to get away with this.

When you compare what Trump has done with what Nixon did, it's like comparing shop lifting a chocolate bar (Nixon) with stealing all the gold in Fort Knox (Trump).

If Nixon did what Trump has done, he would have spent the rest of his life in prison.

The bar hasn't been lowered - it's been removed and shoved up the ass of all decent Americans.

It does look like a few senior Repugs will talk to Trumpy and, guaranteed of a pardon from Pence he might walk. Using the office of President to further own financial interests.

Well, some people’s opinion—don’t ask me who, just stuff I half listened to while driving.
