Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

Since his election, I have been generally supportive of President Trump’s legislative agenda, but his demeanor distresses me. He has the tact of a wounded Cape buffalo.

Also, the dog and pony show in D.C. has exhausted me. President Trump has acted and talked stupidly but that does not constitute high crimes and misdemeanors. If he doesn’t shut up, he may well talk himself out of a job.

Our present “ship of state” is being captained by a man who seems to be sailing in circles. This is in contrast to all of the declared Democratic candidates each of which would surely run our “ship” aground in short order.

I would favor a Republican ticket with Nikki Haley for president and any of the following list as VP: Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, John Kasich or Marco Rubio.

The old Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times,” may come to pass upon us with the 2020 election.

Carleton Thompson, Victoria

And here Trump's GOP toadies 'storm the SCIF' today in a desperate move ordered by the White House to try and prevent more damaging testimony. How much lower can they and Trump go? A flood of lies and denials and stonewalling.

John Kasich said Trump should be impeached. Withholding aid that Congress approved in exchange for political dirt on your political opponent,obstructing of a Congress are two articles that can be considered high crimes and misdemeanors. That’s up to the House but no to worry there are not enough principled Republicans to remove.

Trumps demeanor has been the same since he first started running for President so you are coming late to the party but absolutely correct now. Since the Republican Party is not supporting/allowing anyone to run against Trump you are stuck with this candidate. As for Democrats, it’s my understanding the US has only done well financially during years lead by Democrats. Not sure what they could do worse than Trumps record breaking national debt. You bought a lottery ticked with this guy and America is the big loser.

The record breaking national debt didn't start with Trump. George W. turned the budget surplus he inherited into a record breaking deficit by dragging us into the Middle East quagmire, where we remain today, as pointlessly as ever. As long as we're trapped there no president will be able to do much about our negative financial condition except make it worse.
