I am linking to Jane’s post on the reconstruction of New Orleans. Jane is a great newish voice on the Internet and deserves the credit for the research. She writes about a variety of subjects from some of the funniest posts I have read to some with the most pathos and now some great political research. I added one little link to an article from the New York Times. The person speaking in the block quote is Jane.
Truthfully a friend had told me this last week before it was announced and swore me to secrecy. I didn’t believe my friend at first; but will always from now on. Promise, and I think I owe my friend my life’s savings as I keep on losing bets about this administration.
If theres’s one person I hate as much as I hate Bush, if that’s possible it’s Karl Rove
Bushi never said “fire” so just cross out the word fire. Good job! What he said & what all of us misheard was when he used the word “HIRE”.
You see, fellow dumb Americans, such as myself, Bushi has appointed aka HIRED Karl Rove to be in charge of the Gulf Coast reconstruction plan. (Looks like he’s on the right track to repeat history Michael Brown!). Afterall, he’s gotta spread the wealth. It can’t just be Halliburton that’s gonna get richer off this!
I assume some of you out there are skeptics and, well, it figures! Bushi is just trying to do something out of goodwill & it figures you liberals are gonna twist things all screwy.
I’m sure he’s learned from his questionnable hiring of the former head of FEMA, Michael Brown, aka horse-awarder-firee to put only qualified people in high places.
So, I’ve decided to lay out Rove’s qualifications for you party poopers. They are as follows:
1992 ~ Fired from the Bushi Gubernatorial Campaign for planting a disparaging story about a Bushi with Bob Novak.
2000 ~ Smear campaign against Decorated War Veteran, John Mc Cain ~ Rove suggests former POW McCain committed treason and fathered a child out of wedlock. After Rove denied role in McCain Whisper Campaign, reporters concluded he was behind it. They dubbed this Decorated Vietnman War Veteran, Mc Cain “The fag candidate”. (and it was Bushi who was the cheerleader!)
2003 ~ Identifying a covert CIA agent. Of course, this was in retaliation for Valerie Plame’s husband, Joseph Wilson, reporting the FACTS regarding Iraq & WMD.
(a federal crime)
2005 ~ Lying to the grand jury about knowledge of the leaking of Plame’s name.
(another federal crime)
Okay, we impeached a president because he lied about a blow job, but where’s the investigation into Rove’s behavior? Or are we giving Bush another free pass, along with a get out of trouble and enhance your career card to Rove?
If you’re an American and don’t see the double standard in this then I feel very sorry for you for the following reasons:
Monica Lewinsky was a dupe in a scheme by Ken Starr, the Republican led house, and in this particular case, Linda Tripp and Lucianne Goldberg to rid the country of Clinton. Do you think that they really cared about Clinton’s sex life? Of course not. It was the absolutely worst thing that they could find to pin on him.
Is having extra-marital sex a worse crime than committing treason? Oh but you don’t know if Rove and Bush, and face it he was part of it, were guilty. Then where’s the investigation?
I admit to having hated Rove since he came into my city and talked about “liberals wanting therapy for terrorists,” when in fact they would be taking numbers to see who could hang Bin Laden; and most of us don’t believe in the death penalty. It’s one of the many reasons we’re relecting Bob Morgenthau, an 86 year old year old man, Manhattan District Attorney.
But most of us feel a little differently when it comes to terrorists. So when Rove was outed the next week or so as the source in the Rove/Wilson mess, it made me want to hang him also.
Right now we are seeing Americans at their finest; opening their hearts, and pockets to people who suffered in Katrina.
Because I love this country I want to see it reclaimed by the people, for the people. Not by Bush for Rove for Halliburton. Before you go calling me a Socialist and telling me how you love the country and how wonderful Bush is, it’s you who needs to examine your moral values.
My moral values are just fine thank you.
Lying over sex; stupid to impeach a president for. Lying over probable treason; a great reason to impeach a president. And that’s just the beginning.
Why was Karl Rove promoted when he should have been put on leave? Does any of this make any sense?
