Karl Rove is reportedly going to resign as White House Deputy Chief
of Staff effective August 31st, 2007.
That removes a lynchpin from Bush's regime. AND I MOST CERTAINLY DO
Good riddance, Mr. Rove! What do you know about Carol Lam's
firing? Was it to prevent the pursuit of MY Cunningham case? Tell
the truth, now, Mr. Rove!
Resigning seems to be the American Way to admit -- without admitting
anything -- that you have committed crimes for which you would be
punished if you tried to stay in office. Just resign, and move
on. As a speaker, Karl Rove will be in extremely high demand on the
corporate rubber-chicken circuit. My guess is he'll be able to
command OVER $100,000 per event.
And why? Because people love to hear a talk man who had power, lost
it, kept his dignity, and is cheerful about it all along. And Karl
Rove, for all the mass murders and other sins he commits, always,
ALWAYS has a smile. And pretends to have his dignity. And
pretending is close enough to the real thing for Corporate America.
The Bush Regime is crumbling all around its leader. But unless
Alberto Gonzalez and Dick Cheney ALSO resign, Bush still has people
who can do his dirty work (Gonzales) and his thinking (Cheney) for him.
Bush must be stripped bare, and then forced by popular demand to
resign in naked shame. Until he's gone, we Americans are the ones in shame.
Meanwhile, Congress, with near-record-low approval ratings -- worse
even than Bush's -- is currently on a month-long vacation, which came
shortly after they loudly condemned the new Iraqi government for
taking a break from their virtually useless, totally thankless task
in the no-water, no electricity, no safe-passage summer heat in
Baghdad, a war zone.
Perhaps Congress should take a hint from Rove and ALSO resign. We
can just have all new elections this November and try again to get
honest leaders in Government. Honest government is the root of
democracy, and we are a long way from it, but with Rove's
resignation, we are making some progress, at last.
Exposing Dick Cheney's secret pro-nuclear energy plan is the next big
task that Congress should take on. The secret energy plan has
already resulted in a completely ILLEGAL deal with India to sell them
American nuclear fuel and reactor technology, and let them use our
nuclear reprocessing facilities (which we now intend to rebuild,
using French-controlled foreign corporations). The deal with India
was made DESPITE India's flagrant violations of the world's
Cheney should resign, and so should Bush. Then we can put them on
trial for treason.
