Cleaning the White House

By
May 5, 2007

Rove and Gonzales tortured the Constitution. Like the eight fired prosecutors, they serve at the pleasure of the president. Bush doesn’t need due process to fire them. They don’t have to be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of a crime.

In fact, they don’t have to be found guilty by a predominance of the evidence, the standard in a civil suit.

Bush can fire them because he believes they are unethical slimeballs.

Both Alberto Gonzales and Karl Rove zealously and rather effectively subverted the Constitution by trying to make our republic into a monarchy.

I doubt Bush as the wannabe king thinks they are guilty of ethicial transgressions for helping to craft the crown he wanted to wear, that is, when not stuffing his ballistic balls into a flight suit. In fact, I doubt Bush even thinks about ethics. Whoever heard of a truly ethical emperor?

Devout Bushieness is his criteria for who stays and goes among White House appointees and those whose employment he can control. Witness how it appears that Monica Goodling broke the law by vetting the hiring of all career prosecutors to assure even entry level lawyers were Republicans.

The only way to pressure Bush to bounce his buddies Alberto and Turd Blossum is for Republicans in Congress to demand it.

Perhaps they could do this by joining with Democrats in a non-binding resolution of no confidence in these toxic twins. It probably won’t work, but if Republicans take their own oath to the Contsitution seriously, they should try.

While they’re at it, I think they should add Dick Cheney to the vote and turn thumbs down on the toxic triplets of the White House.

Their conclusion, like mine:

It is long past time for President Bush to fire Mr. Gonzales. But Congress, especially the Republicans who have dared confront the White House on this issue, should not be satisfied with that. There are strong indications that the purge was ordered out of the White House, involving at the very least the former counsel, Harriet Miers, and Karl Rove.

It is the duty of Congress to compel them and other officials to finally tell the truth to the American people.

    but, I doubt that will be enough.

    We will need thousands of barrels of industrial strength drain cleaner to clean up after their mess.

    While the White House could stand a good douching, it’s highly unlikely to occur voluntarily.

    The “Commander Guy” is merely the brand name stooge. He takes direction. If he were to rid the nation of the two vermin as you propose, it would be akin to a lobotomy.

    Do you REALLY think the moron would last the week, if he were to send Poppin’ Fresh Rove packing??

    The NEXT President should have sign the ICC treaty.

    Then, The current administration could be arrested, and tried for war crimes.

    Just like Nuremberg.

    Since Spandau is no longer available, I’d suggest they serve their sentences in Abu Ghraib.

    Without Roves hand jammed up his arse to make his mouth move, “W” doesn’t stand a chance. Strip away Cheney, Snow, Rove and Gonzales and what do you have left? A small, simple minded dolt with a limited grasp of his native language (English).

    Look at his track record – George W. Bush failed at everything he attempted – until KKKarl Rove took him by the hand and said “come on laddie, I’ll make you President!” …

    In the words of Crocodile Dundee,that’s not a scandal, This is a scandal.Every time we hear of some investigation into WH improprieties they just come up with a new one to distract us.Journalists fire away then back off as new so called revelations come to light. Ed R Murrow is laughing his ass off to keep from crying about the sordid condition of the fourth estate. Case in point Tony Snow has cancer, so everyone to be politicaly correct backs off while he spews the WH’s line of crap and incompetance.I’ve beaten bladder cancer twice,I recognized that having my guts in a turmoil over past improprieties cost me dearly.No wonder he is just one more in a long line of those who can no longer lie for these bastards ,Mcclellan,Fleisher etc. I am convinced todays newsmen are peeing they’re pants when the little cowboys henchmen look they’re way.How else can sweeping the provable crimes of this WH under the rug be explained?? So go ahead and shoot your mouths off about the next scandal, but have your pencils sharp because they’ll just keep a coming, and you can rest assured that the emptiness in your guts is already malignant and waiting to infect all that is known as the fourth estate. Asking that Congress act is like expecting Shit to run uphill,to much in fear of the Turd and the little cowboy and to little fear of the American public..Good Night America. P.S. Tony, you seem like a nice man, get the hell out before it’s to late…

    Interesting – the Queen of England is visiting the US – this morning GW noted that (and I quote) “you were here to help us celebrate our bicentennial in 17 .. uh .. 1976″ –

    He just keeps topping himself.

    As for integrity, honesty, duty to country, loyalty to the citizens – none of that matters in this country any more- what matters is making money – period. If we could just get it through our collective heads that the America 1.0 had been replaced – that we were now in America 2.0 -where greed works – where lying is the best way to attain and retain high public office or make it to the corporate boardroom then we could all get on with living … Guess I’m a slow study on that particular point.

    Peace

    …and leave him there before he has more parents’ children killed for his own gain –

    …He paused as if to see if the queen had taken offense.

    “She gave me a look that only a mother could give a child,” the president said with a smile.

    …yep, that’s Bar’s little special boy
