After noting the start of a new Congress with Democrats running the House, Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley for realizing he had no chance of winning the 2020 Democratic nomination and deciding not to run.  They also note O’Malley is urging Beto O’Rourke to run for president, saying it’s time for a new generation of leadership.  Jim and Greg also shudder as President Trump not only thinks that the Soviet Union collapsed because of its failed efforts in Afghanistan but thinks the Soviets were right to invade in the first place.  And they practice their shocked faces as Democrats start pursuing the impeachment of President Trump on the first day of the new Congress.

    As a history teacher, I can’t listen much to the president without getting a pain in my stomach.     I do wonder how Reagan fans reconcile the idea that the US didn’t really have much to do with the collapse of the Soviet Union.  It was an inevitable because Afghanistan was so difficult for the Kremlin?
