Pullen: This administration is bad for our Country and bad for Democracy. It’s poisoning our environment, harming workers, families, women, minorities, immigrants, seniors, students and children. It’s undermining education, healthcare, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. It’s undermining faith in our public institutions. It’s attacking reporters, the free press and squandering America’s credibility and moral standing among other nations and world leaders. It’s abandoning allies, befriending those who seek to harm us, and undoing strategic alliances. It has no direction. This administration lacks respect for the rule of law, the Constitution, international law, the United Nations, and the American people. The lack of empathy, knowledge, understanding, or a shared moral vision eliminates the possibility for constructive change. Corruption is rampant, unchecked, and overlooked as if it doesn’t matter. Lies, deceit, disloyalty, and dysfunction pervade this administration. The only protection we have in the face of a House without a backbone is this administration’s incompetence. America’s strength, resilience, and determination to hold this administration to account, to protect our democracy and uphold the rule of law, however, will be made very clear in the 2018 elections.
