J.W. Bush looks nervous.

Rove held the leash, and Cheney was his handler.

The rats are leaving the sinking ship?
He probably has a lot of work to make sure there is not much left to be covered up when the government changes. Just too bad that it seems that the Democrats are just the lesser of two evils and Reps and Democrats seem both to have an agreement not to cover up what happens because both for sure have collected a lot of evidence about crimes of the opponent and neither of them can afford them to get into public. Long live Corporate America!

KARL ROVE resigns - DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD.

Now that's funny, ANOTHER idiot spewing nearly incompetent ideology. Great for the idiots that already believe that stuff, self-defeating in convincing others of your position.

And what's your position?

Other than forum mouth-off? Ready for that trip to a DU country yet? Didn't hear much from you from that point on in the debate.

Seems like this kid has more knowledge of Rove's exploits than you!

I've known almost nothing about Rove until I read this thread (thanks btw).
Well, a headline here, a mentioning there...

Google-ing around I learned that Rove was "Bush's brain", "Bush's political brain", "George W. Bush's master strategist", even "Bush's Napoleon"...

Quoting The Nation:

Karl Rove should stay.
[...]
Rove helped Bush start a war, and now hundreds of thousands of American GIs (and millions of Iraqi civilians) have no choice but to live with the consequences of that decision. Why should Rove -- and not they -- be allowed to say, Sorry, now I have to bug out to spend more time with my family? How nice for the Roves that he can walk away from the war.


IMHO each politician should take full personal responsibility for their decisions, on all means. Either they can bear this burden, or they're on the wrong place.

Rove's history is crazy.

"Bush's Brain" is also a movie that breaks it down pretty good for us.

And what's your position?

That he left at the peak of his marketability, given that he has nearly full access to a former president and full access to a sitting president. I wouldn't call that cutting and running. You're welcome to.

Other than forum mouth-off?

Nope, it's just polemic. Using absurdity to demonstrate absurdity.

Ready for that trip to a DU country yet? Didn't hear much from you from that point on in the debate.

I'm sorry, I missed that, I'll take a look.

Ummmm, that kid was just spouting opinion that amounted to little more than political ideology--mostly because in his haste to condemn Karl and the U.S. he conveniently forgets that his own country (and many others) regularly do/did everything he figures Karl is masterminding. That is hypocritical, and generally somewhat self-defeating. Silly hyperbole only panders to those that already want to believe, it doesn't convince those that disagree.

I doubt the kid was doing the vid to sway anyones opinion.

It was simply a celebration on tape.

My apologies.

I could have sworn you said something else:

Now that's funny, ANOTHER idiot spewing nearly incompetent ideology. Great for the idiots that already believe that stuff, self-defeating in convincing others of your position.

You're right, I did say "that's funny," instead of "it's funny," right at the beginning. Though I'm not sure how that really changes the point.
