President Cheney In The Bullseye

A quite interesting reading on the Fitzgerald case by John Dean.

Will Libby flip? Unlikely. Neither Cheney nor Libby (I believe) will be so foolish as to crack a deal. And Libby probably (and no doubt correctly) assumes that Cheney - a former boss with whom he has a close relationship -- will (at the right time and place) help Libby out, either with a pardon or financially, if necessary. Libby's goal, meanwhile, will be to stall going to trial as long as possible, so as not to hurt Republicans' showing in the 2006 elections.
So if Libby can take the heat for a time, he and his former boss (and friend) may get through this. But should Republicans lose control of the Senate (where they are blocking all oversight of this administration), I predict Cheney will resign "for health reasons."

I predict the crooks will help their cronies get off the hook, anyway, anytime, just remember Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rummy, Gonzalez are the real destroyers of democracy like in Haiti, Bush ousted the democracy there for the world to see. Nothing would be better than an impeachment of the entire Crooked Bush Administration. - The Maniac

I think they will eventually get off with a pardon or something. It's worked that way with Nixon and Bush for Reagan. Although strangely not with the Clinton case. I just want people to see the truth and the evil despots they have put in power. To me that is the goal in the long run.

The trial will drag out, then Bush will pardon Libby after the 2006 elections. He will do the same with Rove when Rove is indicted. Most people have no desire to see the truth, it is too stressful. Ignorance is their strengh.

I still would not shed a tear if these war criminals were executed in "Old Sparky" down in Fla. Sad to say that if Libby is convicted, he will most likely be pardoned by Bu$h. Ditto for Rove. Cheney may resign citing the health problems which should have prevented him from being "elected" President in 2000 and 2004. Bu$h would pardon him, too. I take comfort from believing that in the afterlife these guys (and Condi, etc.) will suffer somehow. They are so convinced they are in the right (they're only in the RIGHTWING) I don't expect any deathbed repentance among them. If they are reincarnated may they all be reborn as polar bears, seals,walruses, arctic wolves, or some other endangered species or at least as poverty stricken and oppressed people in imperialist/corporate globalist dominated 3rd World nations.

Speaking of polar bears. No protest this week because of Veteran's Day. Too bad as I wanted to protest our U.S. Rep. who always votes for Bush and not for vets and who has every single time voted to drill in the ANWR. Good to hear that that will be killed again. The majority of Americans oppose this, but our CongressOILMAN could care less about what the PEOPLE want. Well, the next time he shows his face around these parts we should let him and others know what we think of his rotten anti-environment votes.
