Congress, use your power

I am neither surprised nor shocked by the president’s weak and spineless performance at the recent meeting with Putin. I expected no less from him. But I am, however, quite ashamed that a man who swore to protect our country was seen fawning all over an enemy of the United States. His explanation of this behavior was far too ridiculous to stomach. Is he really becoming that unstable?

Congress has the power to rein this nonsense in, but seems unwilling to use it. Do so many of our representatives really fear this man that much, or do they put their jobs and political futures above the safety of our country and its citizens? If this is the case, they are easily replaceable! Some try to sit on the fence and speak of “missed opportunities” and other weak and non-confrontational admonitions. Only the brave dare to speak out! Those who do not strongly stand against this behavior are simply not worth keeping in office.
