HUH????

Does this make sense to anyone?

Rove controversy has our attention

Last Updated: July 19, 2005, 06:50:29 AM PDT
Some Republicans are calling the Karl Rove controversy a teapot tempest and of little interest outside Washington. Mr. Rove was already in recent bad odor for denigrating his fellow Americans’ response to the 9-11 attacks, a disgusting display of partisan mud-slinging. Now it turns out he leaked classified information, apparently to punish an investigator of Iraq’s WMD program. As reported in the New Yorker at the time, Joseph Wilson went to Niger and thoroughly explored the claims that Iraq tried to buy yellowcake uranium. No such purchases were found and the related documents turned out to be counterfeit. As this information was published well before the State of the Union speech, I was astonished to hear Mr. Bush repeat the discredited allegation.
Granted, not everyone is retired and has time to read lengthy articles, but wouldn’t you think that Rove and others, not to mention Bush, would at least know the results of this CIA-authorized investigation? This was either unacceptable ignorance or, more likely, “fixing the facts around the policy.” Later, the wife of the investigator who disagreed with aspects of this bellicose policy became “fair game,” to the destruction of her career as an undercover intelligence agent.
You bet we’re interested.

Let’s sum this up:

Rove controversy has our attention

and

You bet we’re interested

but

Granted, not everyone is retired and has time to read lengthy articles,


So what she’s saying is:

We can’t be bothered to spend any time to become better informed about the situation, but we can spout off weak, liberal talking points.

Don’t believe me? The proof’s in the pudding:

but wouldn’t you think that Rove and others, not to mention Bush, would at least know the results of this CIA-authorized investigation?

Not when the “non-partisan” former ambassador doesn’t write and submit a report detailing his “investigation” and nobody at the CIA thought it important enough to tell the president or the vice-president. However, they can sure shit a brick when the president mentions it later. Not only that, but the president’s comment is still a true statement and the British government still stands by it. Bet they didn’t tell you that in the New Yorker.

On another note,

Some Republicans are calling the Karl Rove controversy a teapot tempest and of little interest outside Washington.

Exactly who are these “Some Republicans” who have said this?

    My theory on Rovegate is the Press got into a big frenzy over the ‘Deep Throat’ outing, and then went into a funk, wondering why they couldn’t dispose of Bush the way they disposed of Nixon.

    In the absence of a real scandal, they decided to gin up the Rove thing, hoping spin, innuendo, and outright lies would make up for the lack of evidence and the complete absence of a crime.

  2. Rob Says:

    Exactly. They’ve been pretty adept at making up scandals. They can’t stand the fact that lord BJ was ass deep in scandal and Bush has nothing, so they have to make some up.


  3. Rob:

    It won’t do the least bit of good to inform people like Ms. DD of Modesto.

    I HAVE read the background material on Niger, including the Senate Intell Report AND the British Butler Review.

    Yet, when I present the facts from these two reports to liberals who still cling to the “BUSH LIED” thing in part because of his remarks in the State of the Union speech, they turn a deaf ear and just launch out on the next lefty loony tune.

    The REAL story here is that the brouhaha over this is cover for bungling manipulation of partisan hack Wilson and his wife.

    If lefties were aware of how artfully they have been used by this clown, they might have to examine some of the other shibboleths that make up their flawed intellectual framework.

    And we all now how painful that would be.

    Well, Mike, half of them are too stupid to realize they’ve been used and the other half are too arrogant to admit it.
