Beware President Pence!

Post by fountainhall » Wed Sep 05, 2018 10:25 am

“The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence” is a new book by Michael D'Antonio and Peter Eisner. It paints a pretty horrifying picture of what life might be like under the profoundly evangelical God-fearing Pence. The book describes him as being ruthless under a calm, reassuring exterior. He is a perfect foil to Trump, as pious and religious as Trump is profane. His main motivation has been to remake America as a Christian nation. He wants to consign Roe v. Wade to the "ash heap of history"
he is willing to tie his political future to President Trump, “a man whose immorality in the form of lying, cheating, and deceiving in every aspect of his life, from his marriage to his businesses, had made him a living exemplar of everything that Christianity and conservatism abhorred.”

It’s okay, though, because this is all part of God’s plan — for Pence.

. . . after losing his first race for Congress in 1988, Pence not so gradually becomes a cunning, self-righteous, self-lauding extremist . . .

The book offers plenty of evidence that Pence’s presidential aspirations remain strong. The executive branch is littered with Pence people because “Trump didn’t have any people of his own.” The vice president’s “pious and cautious exterior” hides his “desire for power"
Conservative commentator George F. Will has described Pence as "horrifying.

As Michael D'Antonio told CNN last night, Pence could become the longest serving President in recent years - 2 years as Trump is impeached followed by 2 four year terms.

God forbid!

Which is the devil we don't know? Seems to me we have a clear picture of both devils.

What the USA needs are real leaders:
