Nope. But you can't knock 'em out of the saddle if they're sitting in the stands.

So ... he couldn't appoint someone else??
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

He is free to appoint whom he chooses, but catching an active bureaucrat in abusing their office is more devastating to a career, and may afford little in retirement benefits for the one caught.

Trump is right about 90 percent of the time on policy,  but he's killing his own chances.

Trump enjoys very solid Republican support.  The so-called never-Trumpers are largely a myth.   It is with independents where he is danger of throwing it all away. 

The Dems are making it explicit that a re-elected Trump will have no peace.   They want independents to cry uncle.  Trump ought to be able to stop playing the Dems' tribal-warfare game.   But he won't, or can't.  Perhaps it's because he thinks his base demands it.

I fear it is a fatal error.

Generally speaking, "Independents" are thinking people.  They're not going anywhere. 

This is about deciding to go back to record jobs and economic numbers, or do you want to "demand change"...like the citizens of Venezuela did once upon a time.

Don't kid yourself.  Independents ARE smart,  and they can't stand the brain farts of Trump's stupid doggone tweets.

They sure are embarrassing to defend, especially when they are unforced errors. 

The tweets are driving independents away.  Without them, Trump loses.   Trump has got to listen to his State of the Union again and adopt that message and tone. On that, I trust you and I agree.

You should have stopped at "Independents are smart......"

They won't give a fig in November when given the binary choice.  Not if they love their children and grandchildren they won't.

Rosenstein's work is affiliated with the Clintons, Bush and Obama.   Sessions had ordered Rosenstein to resign -- Trump refused his resignation.  You tell me why Trump was so bent on keeping him. Are you trying to say that Rosenstein was a good choice and devoid of any corruption??

You're looking through the prism of hindsight's 20/20 vision ... judging decisions made in 2017 on information we've uncovered in 2019/2020.  I choose not to play this game @libertybele  ... I think it's a meaningless exercise cluttering where we are now and obstructing our path to justice.

Driving them away to what? Babbling Biden? Seriously?

As I have said before, the best policy is to shift the message to a "Yes, we can", Rosie the Riveter and other upbeat mentality that we, and I stress WE (not government) are going to rebuild America better, faster, stronger than ever.

That's the winning message.

Frankly the only ones I see voting for Biden are the diehard NT's and Libtards. Record low unemployment across the board. Steady increase on Wall street, we are respected by our allies and feared by our enemies.

Yes,  that's a winning message,  that will be drowned out by the manufactured hullabaloo over Trump's tweets.

Sometimes I think that Trump would just as soon lose so long as he can play the martyr.   As for those of us who fear a radicalized Dem party returned to power through the Trojan horse of Joe Biden,  we are sick and tired of Trump's appetite for self-destruction.

All is on the verge of bring lost.

We'll see how things turn out in November.  Until then,  enjoy your dreams and carry on with your hero worship.  I see the storm coming,  and it breaks my heart.  Especially when good people won't use the two eyes God gave them to see that Trump's flaws are going to doom us all.

Rosenstein's affiliation with the Clintons was enough reason for me to question Trump's choice ... not a matter of information being uncovered; information or at least suspected information has been surrounding Hillary for quite sometime.  Enough said.

Your logic on this is baffling ... Trump wanting to lose?  Are you kidding me?? He THRIVES on WINNING!  It's all about winning for him and I certainly don't see in the least that he has an appetite for self-destruction; he's a survivor.

@Jazzhead

History indicates the winning candidate will be from one of the two major parties.

Assuming it is Trump v. Biden, then Trump stands an excellent chance of activating voter concers, as he did in 2016.

Think 1968, 1972.

Substitute the word "wisdom" for "judgment" if you like.

Think "Silent Majority," think "Bradley Effect."

In @Jazzhead 's defense:  Although I offer zero opinion on the content of what he has posted, his comments do indicate that there is a third option here other than AT or NT.  The vast majority of posters here fall into that third category.  It doesn't mean that all of us in that category agree with each other all of the time.  But it does illustrate the possibility that a person can agree with Trump some of the time and disagree some of the time.

From my own standpoint, I am sick and tired of being labeled NT just because I don't agree with the liberal left-wing position Trump took on something or because I am unwilling to accept it simply because Trump was the one who did it.  It really is OK to take a polar position on Conservatism v. progressive fascism instead of taking one on pro-anti Trump.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

All? Nope. And there is no way you can turn it around and blame Trump for the perfidy of the various agencies and their handlers for the mess they've made in this country, except to presume that they did this solely to attack him, and would not have done much the same to any other Republican in the White House.

After Valerie Jarrett's little bit about "paybacks" the regime expected another 8 years to dismantle America as we knew it through "fundamental change". They didn't get it and have been having a sh*tf*t ever since.
America is getting tired, but by no means is ready to surrender to the likes of the people who have made their entire raison d'etre to attack the duly elected POTUS for four years,leaving the business of the country to rot.

I think a large number of Americans are inclined to get back what they had built, and to work for it.

The evidence of his self- destructiveness is, to me, overwhelming.   Stop patting yourself on the back - it is supporters like you who should be offering the man some constructive criticism.   He won't listen to folks like me, even though I support most of his policies.   I'm just the enemy, same as the libs.

The time for getting through to the man is running short.  Stop kissing his ass and do something.
