    One of the places we need a group of highly skilled and highly ethical people is on the Federal Reserve Board. Trump's choices are not likely to be either of these.

    Just as unqualified as the president but luckily this unqualified individual has moved aside.

    No it isn't. Stop with the alarmist malarkey. Reality. America hasn't been destroyed. Democrats are working harder to destroy our elected leaders than Russians ever have.

    Same for Democrats.

    How many times were you told Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election?

    So many times that you accepted it as truth and repeat it. Even though we have 3 investigations that said Trump didn't collude with Russia to throw the election. Yet you keep saying he did (believing MSNBC over FBI, Robert Mueller, and US Intelligence Community).

    Turn off MSNBC.

    Google and read "Russian interference in 2016 United States elections - wikipedia"...
    Facts, not spin.

    Never said that. I don't have to defend things I never said.

    Read "Russian interference in 2016 election - Wikipedia"...
    Insert "Democrats" everywhere you see "Russians".
    Both have same goal "Increasing political discord in the United States".

    "Maybe if our President and their Administration didn't have to defend themselves from constant attacks _from Congress_ and Liberals in the Media... the Administration would run just a little smoother, and maybe even get something done."

    Are you joking?

    Trump had Republican controlled houses of Congress for his entire first two years. Both house and Senate did anything he asked, yet he still nearly doubled Obama's rate of executive order usage and completely decimated Obama's rate of golfing.

    That doesn't begin to address the volumes of caustic, false tweets from Trump every day he's been in office.

    Trump's issue is Trump. No one else.

    "IMO the goals of the Russian hackers and the people in Congress are very similar. To delegitimize the election, and therefor our government and those elected in the election."

    The GOAL of Putin and Trump is to take down our country.

    Trump tells his lies and he makes them big enough and repeats them often enough that his supporters eats it up as truth.

    Putin has his hackers supporting Trump by creating false information against opponents of Trump.

    Trump professes his loyalty to Putin by disgracing our national security agencies.

    Trump ignores our most sacred memorials in France and Arlington.

    Putin hackers attack the internet in full support of Trump on Facebook.

    Now tell me again how Russia is against Trump.

    Partisans said the same thing when Obama was elected. That he wanted to "Fundamentally Change America" (his words).

    They Assumed that meant making America a Socialist State.

    It was lame back then (didn't happen, didn't even slightly happen like they feared). Same with your fear-mongering today. America hasn't become Fascists like Liberals keep pretending is our fate if we don't remove Trump in the next few weeks, it can't wait till 2020, it's an emergency!

    Lame back then. Just as lame today. America is America (with all it's flaws). We aren't becoming something else if we don't get rid of Trump soon.

    Trump isn't taking us anywhere we weren't going if Hillary Clinton had won. Maybe somebody else would be paying for your health Insurance today, but other than that... nothing much would be different. We would still have immigration problems. Terrorist attacks. Taxes. Scandals, Etc.

    Would America be much different today if Trump had lost? I don't think so. It would just be R's investigating Her sins and trying to destroy her today.

    Maybe if our President and their Administration didn't have to defend themselves from constant attacks from Congress and Liberals in the Media... the Administration would run just a little smoother, and maybe even get something done.

    The attacks from people in Russia to discredit our leaders and our government institutions that happened before the 2016 election were Nothing compared to the daily onslaught of attacks we get daily from people in Congress and the News Media wanting a story or innuendo salacious enough to get viewers.

    IMO the goals of the Russian hackers and the people in Congress are very similar. To delegitimize the election, and therefor our government and those elected in the election.

    Both have the goal to discredit and ruin the reputation of the President and destroy any support the people have for the President and his Administration.

    I think people in Congress are way more open about it than the people in Russia who wanted to discredit our leaders (mostly Clinton because they thought she would win) and the election.

    Ever stop to think about that?

    And yes... if Hillary had been elected Rs would probably be doing the exact same thing to her today.

    Glorious Leader picks only the best for his government. Sad, so sad, a good man like Cain was destroyed by the Media Cabal.

    Not to worry, Glorious Leader has many, many, many more people who want to march with him to a New America.

    Any comments on Trump’s description of his administration.

    “It runs like a smooth well oiled machine”

    If that is true that he said that, why are so many people leaving his administration?

    With so many “Acting Heads of Departments” Why is Trump seem to be having problems finding qualified people to work for him?

    We consider it a win when the unqualified don't accept the job.

    "Cain is a former CEO of Godfather's Pizza who dropped out of the 2012 presidential race as he faced allegations of sexual harassment and infidelity. The issues resurfaced after Trump said he intended to nominate Cain to the central bank's board of governors."

    Really? That's an issue? Guess he'll have to find an office where that behavior doesn't matter to the GOP. Like President.

    Even the GOP did not much care for him, so this is no surprise.

    Herman Cain, is much smarter than I figured.

    The Feds do a much more thorough investigation then Herman would like.

    Who would want to work for a guy who fires his people every few weeks (on his show or in politics)?

    I don't blame anybody for not wanting to work for the Government. Especially when they get used as pawns in budget negotiations every now and then. Not a good way to live.

    Smart people would withdraw their name. So is it any surprise we end up with the people we end up with?
