Does ROVE See that HE is Next in Line to be Thrown Under the Bus?

Has a back room deal been cut with the Dems like trading baseball cards or marbles? Rove

You give us a Gonzo and a Rove and we will let you keep the Cheney? Would the Dems be that stupid? They are pretty dumb. They allowed Lyme Disease Brain addled Bush to steal two elections from them.

Win, lose, or draw, this Regime needs to be challenged on their subversion of the Constitution of the United States of America. Allowing people to resign to "spend more time with their family" without following through on investigations would not accomplish that. If Gonzo is allowed to quietly resign and / or if Gonzogate is swept under the rug, we will know that the dems have sold us out.

Ray, going by your rationale, if they get rid of Gonzo and Rove to keep Chenney; then, with The surge working, the dems should give up Harry “the war is lost” Reid and Jack “redeploy them to Okinowa” Murtha and we keep General “Patton-like” Petraues.

rahdigly, Murtha’s redeployment call was for Kuwait and Afghanistan. Get your facts straight, or stop misrepresenting facts to make your point.

Why are some Democratic bloggers all of a sudden catching Republican paranoia? Is it contagious for party loyalists regardless of left or right?

Ahchem’s Razor, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one. Rove cost Republicans the election and cost Bush his legacy. It is the simplest explanation and no doubt, a major factor. The revolt by some Congressional Republicans like Arlen Spectre and Jeff Sessions regarding Constitutional issues also no doubt, played a part. Bush’s legacy depends upon leaving something intact for Republicans after he leaves. Failing that, even most conservative historians will blast Bush as the anti-conservative.

The Decider finally made a rational decision to replace Rove with Ed Gillespie who has the potential of working with Democrats to salvage some measure of Bush’s legacy and Republican integrity as being concerned about the nation at least in part, along side its obsession for divide and conquer power maintenance under Rove, which failed miserably after the 2004 elections.

David, it’s actually called “Occam’s Razor.”

And the simplest explanation is not that Rove was fired because Republicans lost elections in 06 (that HE was not managing) but that he actually left on his own just as he and Bush claim.

If Karl Rove, Bush’s very close personal friend and the mastermind behind two successful and very difficult presidential campaigns was leaving unwillingly, there would be little chance of keeping that under wraps. And there’s no indication whatsoever that that happened beyond liberal wishful thinking.

The talents of Karl Rove, a political and electoral strategist, are simply not needed during the final months of second-term administration headed by a president whose political career is coming to a close.

Rove’s departure makes perfect sense. Instead of working behind a desk in a White House with little continued use for his abilities, he’ll now make public appearances, give interviews and lectures, spend more time with his family and friends, rack up a multi-million dollar book deal and very possibly join forces with future candidates who will employ his considerable abilities to their full potential. There’s Occam’s Razor for you.

Does rahdigly ever make a post where he doesn’t mention that the SURGE IS WORKING? Just wondering ;v)

Hey Ray, while I was very curious about the Lyme disease link, you need to subscribe to see it. Got another?

And David, sorry, but Rove makes us paranoid. I have a hard time believing that he will just disappear after this. His brand of partisanism is very tempting for anyone on the Right who wants to get elected. Eventually, he will find another set of ears to whisper into and another throne to stand just behind.

I must Rove,that pudgy pink Goebals,is a genius. Just watched Moyers on PBS going over the campaign to trick us into war. The Whitehouse leaked a bogus story to the NYT about those aluminum tubes that supposedly were to build a bomb. The whole thing was a crock but right after the upper eschelons spread out to every sunday talk show siteing it. They did not lie,as such and they did not realease anything classified. Brilliant.Them talking about it confirmed the story which inturn confirmed them talking about it.
And how about our deepest suspicions that Rather was set up to remove any traction to Bush’s desertion story.That made it possible for the swift boat operation.Too bad Rove only uses his genius for evil instead of good.
We have not seen the last of him. He and his evil will reappear like a Texas Rasputin.

Ray, it’s obvious that the fabled (and powerful) Rovian mind control is still in full operation. I mean just look at your post!

What better strategery could there be except to cause your political opponents to sputter ceaselessly about your exagerated evilness? Absolutely Brilliant. Oh, how I wish I could have KKKarl Roves baby!
