As I See It
Let's All Have a Little Whine With Poor James
I'm going to drop my thoughts on this subject here
instead of just doing a huge Facebook rant.
This way people can be forewarned and steer away if they feel they may
be offended or choose to take issue. I
am fine with disagreements regarding my opinions and I welcome you to leave
your thoughts....good or bad. But,
please do it as a comment on this blog post as I have grandchildren who see my
Facebook page and I would just as soon they not have to realize as such tender
ages that the grandmother gets hate mail.
Today in Washington D C, the taxpayers footed the bill
for a gigantic nothing burger that proved a whole lot of people right and even
more people wrong. The whole Russia -
Trump - Collusion national tour suddenly got all future engagements cancelled
and some people had to eat their nothing burger with a lot of egg on top with a side helping of crow. While Mr. Comey's testimony today debunked a
whole lot of the crap we have been suffering through for months on end....I
found myself ridiculously disappointed in him as a human being.
The ex-director of the FBI is a physically imposing
man. He stands head and shoulders taller
than almost anyone in the room. He
carries himself with an air of confidence mixed with a little swagger which is
certainly understandable...for a long time, he was the baddest badass of them
The director of the FBI is by definition a person who can
cause grown men to tremble in their shoes, women to weep and cling to their
children because such a person can lay waste to your life and salt the earth
effectively ruining it for as many future generations as you can hope to have. That person is the ONE person all politicians
fear....all business owners fear them as well because the power they wield is
so great the potential for utter ruination of an ordinary life is huge.
This past director, at one time, in a former incarnation
relentlessly pursued a "Scooter" as a means to get to a very high
official in another administration. In
short, his badassery is legendary.
And yet....today this man portrayed himself as a
trembling sorority girl who finds herself enduring a blind date with a newly
minted frat pledge who is far less attractive than she is. Even going so far as to write about it in her
diary and send it to a "friend" back home so everyone will know how
miserable and put upon she was. When in
fact....all she had to do was say no thank you and walk away.
While I don't think some people served any good purpose
in trying to mitigate the circumstance by talking about the inexperience and
lack of political acumen of our current President...it is somewhat a known
factor. However, Mr. Comey has risen
through the political rank and file like a bullet to the top and he KNOWS. And he knows he knows. And the President knows the director knows as well. As a person who works for the American people
he has a moral responsibility to the person those people elected to protect not
only his own integrity but that of the man who holds that high office.
"Sir, this is an inappropriate meeting that I am
uncomfortable with not only for myself but for you, even though, in the past I
have requested private meetings with you...this situation is different and we
need to make sure we are both protected by having others in the room with
us." It might have made the
President mad but at least we could have all looked at that as a righteous move
on the director's part.
Throughout his testimony today, he repeatedly made
statements like "it was my impression, and I could be wrong" or
"I just got the feeling, and maybe I'm wrong" and worse...."I
just wasn't brave enough." At least he stopped short of declaring himself the victim of sexual assault.
This is the ex-director of the F B freaking I and he was
afraid of a 70 year old man who he knows if that man crosses him he can rain hell fire down on
him and all his descendants in Biblical proportions.
