OH MY - Part 2

Now there have been reports swirling around that this investigation involving the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame is going deep into the VP's office. Many have speculated that Dick Cheney may have actually been personally involved since:

1. He's been the one fighting hardest to spin the WMD story despite all evidence to the contrary (even up to today).

2. He was personally involved in the various PR planning regarding the way the White House sells the WMD story (along with Karl Rove and Scooter Libby which most of us think will soon be indicted, and I personally think that they commited treason...but since i'm not a federal prosecutor, I'll let that lie).
I've been trying to downplay the idea that this will go up to the VP because I think that would be me letting my distaste for Cheney clould my vision. THIS, however seems to imply the plot is thickening:
Rumors Fly That Cheney Will Step Aside, Bush Will Elevate Condi Rice...:

Sparked by today's Washington Post story that suggests Vice President Cheney's office is involved in the Plame-CIA spy link investigation, government officials and advisers passed around rumors that the vice president might step aside and that President Bush would elevate Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

'It's certainly an interesting but I still think highly doubtful scenario,' said a Bush insider. 'And if that should happen,' added the official, 'there will undoubtedly be those who believe the whole thing was orchestrated– another brilliant Machiavellian move by the VP.'
I think if Cheney steps down, they will TRY to pass it off on his health (which isn't so good), but this sort of move would send this Presidency into a tailspin.

I would give anything for a HEALTHY CHENEY right now so that he can't weasel his way out with the ole "rampant heart problems" excuse! F*()&^(@#$&(@*#&$ *

if he does, no one will believe it unless he dies next month.

If they need a Ford-esque safety net is Secretary Rice in a position not to be affected by the scandal such that she can pardon folks?

And, in that instance, would Bush really put the first black and the first woman into the presidency?

Hmmm .. I go on a business trip to Canada this week - I'm really wondering because you hardly hear anything about Canada in the News. Are they in Iraq too ?

You only hear news about the degenerated US - isn't that strange ?

How can a country , which started so promissing ( except slavery and the holocaust of native americans) and up as such a big pile of SHIT ?

Really strange ... indeed.

... somehow I become more and more Anti-American or is it Anti-Bush ?

You guys should get rid of this idiot from Texas , he is doing no good.

i believe it's Anti-Bush. be analytical and check the numbers for the last four years, it's pathetic. we're in debt more than ever and our heads of state are about to be indicted.

sure, clinton cheated on his wife, but he didn't fuck the rest of us, too.

Polly said...

pinky is certainly right. nations don't change so fast as compared to leaders (S)elected by the thinnest of margins.

Well Clinton liked to get blow jobs which actually is nothing bad , even when you are not married you will not burn in hell for that.

Looking from the outside I sometimes get the feeling that the US is falling back into the mediaeval age with all those right wing "christians". By the way ... someone should explain the meaning of Christianity to Georgy, he is certainly not a Christ , he comes straight from hell and I hope he goes back there soon.
