The short answer is no.
The longer answer is, “Who cares?” I don’t mean who cares about Comey, I mean, who cares what Comey thinks? Let’s face it…anybody that is involved in any way, shape, or form with Donald Trump seems to be coming out with some sort of “tell-all” book about Trump, his administration, and why Trump was wrong. Oh, it’s happened to other presidents as well. I remember several coming out on the Clinton’s. There were a few on W. And of course, Obama had a bunch…some good, some bad. But it seems that everybody that leaves the Trump administration…and there have been a steady stream, have written a book.
My question is, who really cares?
First and foremost, is there a person alive on this planet that believes that James Comey is going to say anything complimentary about Donald Trump? And if that’s the case, is there a person anywhere that is totally objective that would believe this book? I see good and bad things in everybody, including myself. Nobody is totally great, and nobody totally sucks. But from what I’m hearing about Comey’s tome, it’s all bad. He aims a shotgun at Trump anytime he can. I don’t say I blame him. I guess I just believe that anybody that has that type of bias going in is going to appeal to one type of person. The Trump hater.
So, it’s with that in mind that I ask the question, does anybody really care what Comey thinks? I mean, after all, he, like Obama, like Holder, like Lynch, like Hillary, are all has beens. They don’t matter anymore. And their opinions don’t matter anymore. Washington has moved on. History will at some point maybe remember them as a footnote, but they won’t garner much more than that. Oh, Obama might because he was the first black president and all, but everyone else is going to be just like Eisenhower’s Chief of Staff…who cares?
We all have opinions. Most of our opinions don’t mean anything (including mine most of the time). We aren’t experts, and I would hasten that James Comey isn’t an expert on most things Washington either. He was the head of the FBI, so I give him that, but I wouldn’t say he did a good job. I’d say he pretty much screwed up a lot of things. He was supposed to be an upstanding guy, but it doesn’t appear to be the case. So why in hell would I care what he has to say, and even more than that, why would I spend $30 or so on a book that I basically could tell you what’s in it without having to read it?
Somewhere up the road, and I frankly hope it’s soon, the Washington DC folks need to get back to doing what they were sent there to do. That’s govern. They are doing a lot of sniping, a lot of griping, and a lot of finger pointing. But I don’t see them solving many problems. Where is the fix for immigration? Where is the “fix” or the “repeal and replace” for Obamacare? Yeah, we got a tax break through, but it’s been almost a year and a half. This stuff was supposed to be done in a year. Get back to work, or follow Paul Ryan and get the hell out of dodge.
We can only be happy James Comey isn’t a part of DC culture anymore!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
