Where Were These People?

Last year. When all of the liberals looked liked screaming fanatics as we tried to point all this out. There were no editorials, no opinion pieces, no MSM stories to support our position. The information was always out there, they just neglected to do their jobs. Looks like quite a few instituitions have let down the American people.
What the 'Shield' Covered Up: "As long as Bush still faced the voters, the White House wanted Americans to think that officials such as Libby, Karl Rove and Vice President Cheney had nothing to do with the leak campaign to discredit its arch-critic on Iraq, former ambassador Joseph Wilson.

And Libby, the good soldier, pursued a brilliant strategy to slow the inquiry down. As long as he was claiming that journalists were responsible for spreading around the name and past CIA employment of Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, Libby knew that at least some news organizations would resist having reporters testify. The journalistic 'shield' was converted into a shield for the Bush administration's coverup.

Bush and his disciples would like everyone to assume that Libby was some kind of lone operator who, for this one time in his life, abandoned his usual caution. They pray that Libby will be the only official facing legal charges and that political interest in the case will dissipate.

You can tell the president worries that this won't work, because yesterday he did what he usually does when he's in trouble: He sought to divide the country and set up a bruising ideological fight. He did so by nominating a staunchly conservative judge to the Supreme Court."
Bush isn't going to face up to his responsibilities. That is for common people. Royalty doesn't pay the price, that is for subordinates. He could care less about the people of this country, he is only interested in his very distorted view of history and the way he expects to be portrayed.

I would like to think it would be impossible to put all American women in burquas and return this country to a state of oppression, but unless the MSM does its job and the people start to demand accountability from their representatives, (and they start listening) it isn't too far off on the horizon.

When I was little I thought all the old people would die off and the younger ideas would prevail. I had no idea that young people would grow up into old lemons determined to protect a status quo that in their youth they railed against. What's up with that?

As I've heard they like to say in prosecutorial circles, follow the money. The love of money is the root of all evil and this administration is living proof of that.

Because it certainly isn't morality and ethics that are driving these people.
