Welch promises to hold Trump accountable

U.S. Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., speaking in Springfield Monday, said he just didn't know what to expect from a Trump presidency.


So This Is What a National Nervous Breakdown Looks Like?
This op-ed is by William Boardman of Woodstock. He produced “The Panther Program” on VPR for over a decade and served 20 years as a Windsor County side judge.



  1. I sincerely hope he is successful at holding our "President" accountable. My prediction is that Trump will make Nixon look like Mother Theresa, and Bush look like Albert Einstein. (If you think quotes around the word President are inapropriate, may I remind you that it was Trump who spent 8 years de-legitimizing our current President, who actually won the popular vote, twice.)

  2. I would like to see someone hold our Congressman accountable for the things he has does to move the state of VT backwards. He who lives in a glass house in Woodstock should not throw stones!

  3. You know Peter, most of your constituents would be pleased to see you rein in medical costs, welfare reform and meaningful, workforce development. My prediction is another term of absolutely no benefit to working class Vermonters.

  4. I remember when Peter Welch was a bill collector. That pussy can't hold himself accountable.

  5. Wow! What a courageous stand...a democrat actually speaking out against...what? “topsy-turvy”? Joe McCarthy? Hire a speechwriter bud...

  6. i like how the admin of this group only post's the comments that they want to

  7. Hey anon 8:16, this ain't a group, it's a blog. The owner of the blog is a sort of combination publisher/editor. It works like the editorial page of a newspaper; remember those? You want your immortal prose in print? start your own blog - or newspaper.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
