Idaho’s Jim Risch May be Among the Presidents Last Defenders
What am I missing when it comes to impeachment? Late last week I heard a talking head on TV say the possibility of the President being removed from office was receding. Then over the weekend I listened to several people opine it’s now likely. So, how are we to sort the analyst’s claims?
First, I believe there’s much wishful thinking among the Beltway elites. They need to get out much more often. The columnist Selena Zito foresaw Trump’s election in 2016 and she writes the liberals are repeating the same mistakes. You can see her argument by clicking here.
Then you’ve got U.S. Senator Mitt Romney from Utah. The carpetbagger is all in for removing the President. Romney is still smarting from his 2012 debacle
Then you’ve got U.S. Senator Mitt Romney from Utah. The carpetbagger is all in for removing the President. Romney is still smarting from his 2012 debacle, desperately wants to be liked by liberals and fellow travelers in media, and he’ll blow in whatever direction he perceives benefits Mitt.
Contrast him with Idaho’s Jim Risch, who told me a few weeks ago he’s home every weekend. He leaves the swamp, journeys across the continent with no direct flights and then spends two days with his constituents. Unlike Romney (who calls at least 3 states home), Risch didn’t parachute in when a Senate seat became available.
The two states share a common culture, common faiths and a suspicion of big government and swamp creatures. Risch backs Trump, Romney doesn’t.
There are times when the President leaves me exasperated. It doesn’t mean I want him forcibly removed from the Oval Office. His disruptive nature keeps the swamp creatures on their toes. It’s a good thing. They threaten the Republic. He has a short window to modify their behavior.
