Posted on 10/24/2017 11:31:01 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., in choosing to revive and escalate his critique of President Trump, has crossed a critical threshold in questioning the presidents fitness for the office he occupies. The fact that hes not alone in his party and that is a fact - has implications for the presidents ability to govern from here.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is now on the record saying that Trump is debasing our nation, engaging in constant non-truth telling, and even kneecapping public servants in his own administration who are trying to avert war.
This is a senior Republican leader and a onetime advocate for the Trump coming close to declaring that the president is not fit for the presidency.
his is not a fight with Rosie ODonnell or Arnold Schwarzenegger, or even with one of the many campaign rivals whose physical appearance Trump relished mocking during his campaign.
Trump today is having lunch with senators, with his last best shot at a legislative accomplishment this year on the line. Corker has revealed concerns that cut far deeper than that, though with questions about the presidents ability to do the job now in the air on Capitol Hill.
This gets to the heart of governing and what it means to be president. Corker may be the focus of this feud, but hes not alone in his sentiments.

Anything to the “Iran deal” connections to Corker?
For effin God’s sake, why don’t you get it over with Little Bobby and just sell the Iranians the uranium with an instruction book. Oh, wait, someone else already sold all the uranium. Ok, just sell them some damn bombs.
This guy is the poster child of a useful idiot.
Tennessee, you could have and should have done better. Now, you can.
Corker and McConnell need to go. NOW.
This isn’t “analysis”. It’s just more character assassination and wishful thinking by the leftist smear machine. Corker is at the polar opposite from Trump in political importance and power.
I knew this rotten bustard was going to be a problem the minute that I heard he wasn’t running for re-election. He’s free to do and say whatever he wants and he sounds like he’s hellbent on bringing the President down.
They want to get an impeachment going, with the dems and the rhinos
combined to get enough votes.
We need Bannon’s new list of candidates more than ever.
Trump keeps trucking along.
All his adversaries keep exhibiting an inability to let it go,... Trump won. It’s over.
I don’t see any need for Trump to be tested.
His adversaries exhibit reasons every day why they should be tested.
We have some real wing-nuts out there.
How much is Fusion GPS paying Corker for this attempt at deflection?

After the campaign he ran against Harold Ford, Corker has no opinion playing “Dignified Statesman” to anyone.
You mean, ‘they want to get (impeachment) a civil war going’ - talk about deaf to the Truth. Do they think THEY run the country??
Why don't you start serving the people of the Volunteer State instead of the folks up at MSLSD!
Ten bucks says Corker is heavily involved in the Uranium One scandal that has new stories breaking by the day. This would explain why he’s leaving office, and why he’s hell-bent on diverting attention to the nation’s Ringmaster in Chief.
Hey RINO filth...
I just drew a line in the catbox. I defy you to cross it.
“Oh, wait, someone else already sold all the uranium.”
And the instruction book is on the Internet for anyone to read.
(Scary how easy it is to build one. Far from trivial, but an entirely solvable problem given state-scale funding.)
I appreciate FRiends doing the dirty work and saving us from our clicks helping keep the lights on at enemy headquarters. I’m trying to make myself more disciplined when I go to Drudge though I get still get suckered pretty often. Wish there was some way to monitor their activity while giving them zero clicks.
There does seem to be just a tad bit too much desperation to his rants to believe otherwise.
