It's just a game

© 2016 Jim Spence - Let’s play a game. The game is called: “Let’s try to guess what the Democrats will say.” We begin with a theoretical headline news story:
Now, given that headline, predict what Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer would say about this announcement.
My best guess is Schumer would immediately call a press conference and say he is, "appalled.” The reason why this is a good guess is simple. This is exactly what Schumer said about Director Comey six months ago. Schumer did so immediately after Comey announced he had reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails. Comey did this less than two weeks from Election Day.
Perhaps Schumer would add, "I said I did not have confidence in Comey six months ago, and I still don’t!”
Again, I am guessing he would say these things because he said them in early November of 2016.
It would be a good guess to predict that Schumer would also say, “If Comey wasn’t there, we would have won,” just as Schumer did as recently as late March of this year…...two months ago.
Ok, you can post your guess as to what Schumer and the Democrats would say if Trump had extended Comey’s term in our comments section.
Now let’s try this headline: TRUMP FIRES FBI DIRECTOR COMEY
Strangely enough, this is today’s headline. No, Trump did not extend Comey’s term, which would have drawn the ire of one Chuck Schumer. Instead Trump fired Comey, which get this…….also drew the ire of one Chuck Schumer.
So what did Chuck Schumer "say" after Trump fired someone that Schumer has lambasted for six months (along with every other Democrat)? Schumer called for a press briefing and defended Comey. Instead of re-affirming his condemnations of Comey and thanking Trump for finally canning the troll, Schumer had the gall to say he saw a, "deeply troubling pattern" by the Trump team.
Chuck Schumer is mindful of the accountant who is applying for a job at a shady company with a well-deserved reputation for cooking books. The CEO asks the applicant, “What does 2 + 2 equal?” The applicant leans forward and winks as he looks the CEO straight in the eye. He responds, “What do you want it to equal?”
This is what Chuck Schumer does 24-7. He looks the cameras right in the eye and willingly contradicts things he said quite emphatically not long ago. This is true of what he said of the nuclear option for filibusters, which Schumer has argued for and against with equal moral outrage, along with countless other situations where he says up is down, on is off, go is stop, wet is dry, and cold is hot.
Don’t look for ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, or most of the local daily newspapers in the country to point out what a shameless liar Schumer is. They don’t have a problem with it. If you watch Democrats in the press, you realize what they are really saying is James Comey should only be fired……if Republicans won’t fire him. If Republicans do fire him, that is wrong too. They will do this even though they will also with equal faux sincerity say, Comey cost them the election.
Go figure how a guy like Schumer can win easily. Yes, you guessed it. He lives in deep blue New York with the Clintons.
