Just a few thoughts about the past few days:
I was saddened and disappointed by Hillary Clinton’s performance the other day. It reminded me why I am no longer a Democrat. But some of the reactions to her testimony reminded me why I’m not a Republican either.
Hillary Clinton is a high-ranking public servant and quite capable at performing her job. The events in Benghazi called for some intense scrutiny. “Grilling” the Secretary of State is not inherently sexist just because she’s a woman.
An adverse court ruling is not proof of “high crimes and misdemeanors”.
As long as the Democrats control at least 34 seats in the Senate then impeaching Barack Obama is a waste of time and likely to be counter-productive.
Principles require consistency. If it’s wrong when they do it, it’s wrong when we do it. Otherwise, you’re just a tribalist.
We need a mutual cease-fire in the politics of personal destruction. The wrong people are winning and we are depriving ourselves of too many potential leaders.
Sunlight is a known carcinogen. We all need sunlight to be healthy. Too much or too little is a bad thing. Find the right balance.
This applies to everything.
