I'm feeling rather irritated with you today.

Jeff... I still love you.
I am still going to needle you every chance I get over impeachment, because you STILL haven't been willing to tell me ANYTHING that you think WOULD be impeachable for a conservative president, but I don't actually blame you for that. Trump has burned you so many times in the past that it would be stupid for you to draw any lines in the sand when you know you will eventually have to push the goalposts over them.
But, it has been kinda unfair how you have been raked over the coals over it. You are willing to continue to logically argue your (to be fair, somewhat untenable) position. I think that is why you get blasted for it. You SHOULD, logically (at least from my perspective), be in support of impeachment and in opposition to what the GOP is currently doing, but you do not agree ideologically with liberals. So, from an emotional point you cannot abandon your party and betray your ideological tribe. Which is why I am sure, if someone had presented a hypothetical to you six months ago describing the evidence we have now of Trump's actions you would have said it justified his removal. But now that it is a real life actuality, due to emotional aspects (loyalty to tribe) you feel like it would not at all justify removal.
But, I do think you are TRYING to be intellectually honest about it, unlike most of the conservatives on this site, and I do appreciate that. All of us are human and have emotional aspects affect what decisions we make, usually without realizing it is happening. So, while I will continue to try to force you to confront the cognitive dissonance between your intellect and emotions, I realize that while your responses may come across as dishonest they are not intentionally so.
And I appreciate that you continue to allow me to poke and prod at your psyche like you are some sort of experimental lab rat. :)
So, you have taken a lot more abuse as a "fence sitter" than a lot of absolute Trump sycophants have had to endure, which I think is unfair. Even though I can understand their frustration that you seem to be perched precariously on this fence, yet we can NEVER seem to push you off regardless of the strength of the argument provided.
I would say that it should get better, but it probably won't for a while. More and more evidence is going to come out against Trump, and as it gets stronger and stronger it is just going to make people that much more frustrated that you are still perched high up on your fence. Good luck.
