They better not try to use the bottle as an excuse. I've known several hellacious leaders in my time that were drinkers. He's got serious skeletons IMO.
When I see the weak actions of the GOPe, far weaker than their position would mandate, I often wonder about the skeletons. After all, they are only human. John Roberts, I.e. , to come up with such a contorted rationalization of Obamacare, must have 3d skeletons, too.
I think the decline in standards and the ability of the unscrupulous to exploit weaknesses has undermined our governance to where it no longer works.
