BIG NEWS

The decision of Obama to issue a careful, restrained statement of support for the airport protests is MAJOR NEWS.  Don't kid yourselves.  For a former president, nine days after stepping down, to say anything at all critical of his successor, no matter how oblique, is an unheard of development.  There is simply no one better situated to rally the troops.  I am beginning to think we may win [where winning means getting rid of Trump and living with the despicable Pence, just so we are clear.]

The despicable Pence would at least be despicable in a predictable way.

Pence is also less likely to blow up the world.

At this point, I think it is imperative for people on the left to link Pence and Ryan to Trump's reign of terror. Hillary Clinton tried the whole "not all Republicans are like Trump" move, and it failed horribly. If we get rid of Trump, but have Pence's social policies and Ryan's economic policies, that will be a nightmare that will cause massive suffering. Let's not be caught off-guard.
