    This may be oxymoronic, because I loved the intelligent dialogue going on here, but Dickerson seems like one of those kind of guys I'd love to have a beer with. Let's not even get into how hammered I'd probably get discussing Tolkien with Colbert...

    Who wants to see a Dickerson / Colbert Double Float Date? I think they could both use a break away from the news cycle (and all that squirrel hatchery going on in their brains!) with the ultimate mind detox of sensory deprivation and floating! Come be a guest at Lift / Next Level Floats in Brooklyn, John Dickerson and Stephen Colbert! They'd love to have you in for your double float date!

    Hmm, yes Dickerson is basically saying that the presidential system form of government is very much not working. And that it's actually not working for long time. As European I know that very well. US has one of the oldest democracies, but that also means that it's not the greatest. Quite the contrary it's one of the most flawed one. And it is simply because it is one of the oldest ones.

    The role of President as described in the constitution requires all 3 branches of Government to act in good faith otherwise you get a dictator, or Trump.

    Ok, what am I going to need for this interview... ah, a pen!
    Wait, no that’s ridiculous. But is it? What if I need one and don’t have one? I’d be mortified.
    I’m going to bring one just in case.

    I've always liked Dickerson. He's one of (very) few mainstream journalists that I have any respect for these days. Even though I get most of my news from independent online sources now, I still watch and read John's coverage. Keep up the good work, sir, and continue setting an example for your hack peers!

    One point about sensory deprivation tanks.
    If you're looking into it and haven't tried one yet, either make sure you have no open wounds on your body whatsoever or protect them with Neosporin or Vaseline or whatever; some spas will provide such materials for you in the room.
    Because I missed one of mine and with only fifteen minutes left, I must've subconsciously twitched or something because...yikes. I mean obviously, you're climbing into a thing full of salt water. Just be safe. Cover any scrapes or wounds, make sure you're good to go, don't touch your face...because something so serene can turn into a painful slapstick routine on a dime.

    Has anyone actually tried sensory deprivation, because I have a question.
    If your body is actually achieving rest in that state, wouldn't it count as sleeping?
    The one thing I've noticed from seeing a lot of people both in life and online after this exercise, is they seem like they just woke up. Fresher and more intrigued by sight, as if you were awake from a long sleep.

    and created a more positive environment for American business!

    Police and Military.

    Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 was written into the Constitution as one of the great shifts away from the European monarchical tradition of kings and queens just kicking off because they wanted to flex their kingly and queenly muscles. It was about ensuring that power was not concentrated. So the idea of military action going ahead without Congressional approval is, on its face, in direct opposition to the spirit, if not entirely the word, of the framers' intentions. In other words, Prezidolt Fucktard should not have that kind of control.

    Every question he gets should have 'why do you lie all the time?' at its heart.

    This whole thing of micromanaging because you're afraid of being blamed isn't just a presidential problem... it's a problem with EVERY leadership position. And if that makes being a leader impossible, then why the f*ck do we need leaders? This hierarchical system we have needs a revamp. Networked society for the win.

    The media tilts coverage against Trump, while they tilted it for Obama. Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the entire Libya invasion and its awful repercussions, Rev Wright, Larry Sinclair, Soros literally being a part of government ops from Ferguson to Ukraine (but that, of course, would never be called foreign influence), the billion dollar Obamacare website, Biden's business interests with the right wing, Soros-controlled Ukraine government, etc.
    But we're supposed to believe the media is unbiased. Because they say so.

  • Carlos Rodriguez

    Is Trump bringing attention and stress testing elements of the Presidency that 'some' feel are due? Perhaps. Is that more important than the actual damage being done to economy, rule of law, international relations etc?
    Feels like an intellectual examination of the role of the Presidency could be lost among other, larger issues.
