GOP Congressionals Calling It Quits

The 2016 General election resulted in the election of Donald J. Trump to the US Presidency as the 45th a cast of great, less than great and horrific presidents. As 11 months in the Oval Office have passed, it is clear Trump will take his pace in the archived cast of US Presidents as the bottom dweller.

His status as the worse president in US history was foretold for those who are serious about life int he nation as we move into the 21st Century. His performance also wouldn't surprise those who voted for the TV reality show real estate businessman based on their love of Trump and celebrity sycophancy.  They are getting exactly what they wanted entertainment of the worse order.  From daily lies (totaling over 2,000 via the New York Times) through many inattentive public ramblings, through total disregard for campaign lies replete with flip-flops and evidence of in your face campaign lying, Trump is carving US History like non-other. 

Along with Approval Ratings as historic lows, Trump is also shepherding GOP congressional representative decision to forsake their seats at a record pace.

The list of Republicans who have declared hey will not compete for their current seats as we move towards the fall Mid-term elections follows. One member responded in the affirmative to a CNN host's question regarding his decision to not seek re-election including consideration of Donald Trump.
