    He may not even go through the process given what happened to Kavanaugh. Maybe after the election.

    Did you not claim he is a "Yes Man"? Where's your evidence?

    Nonetheless ge seems to be doing quite well in foreign policy. Much better than Obama, and without the apologies.

    Obama set a low bar.

    I don't remember a huge uprising then, do you?
    I don't remember Bush firing intelligence directors because they tried to protect the United States...unlike Trump.

    Yes indeed, but Trump is actually reshaping the world. He'll be a tough act to follow.

    The world is reshaping. Neither Trump nor any other individual is guiding that.

    In fact there is a great deal of evidence that his policies in North America, Mexico, Europe, Asia and the Middle East are having a huge effect. Certainly Obama set a low bar but Trump's policies, energy independence among them, should gain a great deal of credit. He's much more than his public persona.

    I don't claim it's all bad, but it's less than it could be.
