I waited a couple of years to see or read where a Repub said this with all the silly antics of the GOP in Congress….and as usual my wait was in vain.
This whole Russia-gate thing has been raging for months….all the while Dems are trying to use it as some sort of message to the American voter…they are failing.
Let’s be honest…the average person cares little about this Russian thing. I spend time at a local college and there is very little discussion there as well. The only places that this has any footing is the MSM and some blogs….after that no one is talking or even caring.
Even national polls show that it is not that important to the population…..
…….the latest Harvard-Harris Poll survey, provided exclusively to The Hill, which paints a complicated picture of voters’ opinions about the numerous probes that have engulfed the White House.
Sixty-four percent of voters said the investigations into President Trump and Russia are hurting the country. Fifty-six percent of voters said it’s time for Congress and the media to move on to other issues, compared to 44 percent who said the focus should stay on Russia.
But other surveys have found strong support for the special counsel investigating the Russia probe. A Harvard-Harris survey released last month found 75 percent support for former FBI Director Robert Mueller’s investigation.
There is evidence in the Harvard-Harris survey that voters are taking the investigations seriously: Fifty-eight percent say they’re concerned by allegations of obstruction of justice against Trump, with the same number worried about possible dealings between Trump and the Russian government.
But far more — 73 percent — say they’re concerned that the Russia probes have caused Congress to lose focus on the issues important to them. That figure encompasses 81 percent of Republicans, 74 percent of independents and 68 percent of Democrats.
In short the public is growing ever weary of the political games and the lack of Congressional attention to the important things in the voters lives.
If the prez would stop using Twitter to try and bully any opposition then the MSM would have little to report and would move on.
I am not saying remove on from the investigations just keep any news close to the vest until there is something big to report.
As long as the fixation is on this Russian thing then important issue go under-reported or not at all.
We have a health care bill that is a piece of crap, we have a budget debate coming, etc.
And for God sake move on from the last election! Clinton lost…Trump won. Trying to find someone to blame is doing no good…it definitely is not a unifying topic for the Party.
Dems need to find a message that will resonate with voters and stop chasing every Tweet that comes off Trump’s thumbs…..or 2018 will be NO different than any of the last couple of elections.
