Rove "Busted"!

Races for the Senate, U.S. House, etc. and other issues of national importance.

Rove "Busted"!

Postby AlphaLiberal » Thu Mar 15, 2007 10:47 pm

Oh, man! Karl Rove is busted! Got his hand caught on the scales of Justice.

He must have gotten away with raiding a lot of cookie jars as a youth.

As reported earlier on ABC News, here is the email that shows that the whole U.S. attorney purge scheme originated with Karl Rove. It was released this evening by the Justice Department.

Wishful thinking.

Karl stops by and asks a question about the process and suddenly he is the middle of a fire storm? I don't think so.

Haven't you figured it out yet, Karl is too smart to break the laws or have any ethics issues.

The dems keep licking their chops trying to find some, but nothing sticks.

Keep trying.

Rove is clearly a brilliant guy, but I think his ability to avoid prosecution has more to do with luck and his staff's willingness to take a bullet for him.

Sounds like more wishful thinking.

i'm pretty sure Nixon was a smart cookie, too, and things didn't end up too well for him....

I loved this quote:

"We've only had subpoena power for the last six weeks and every tree that we've barked up so far has had a cat in it," said a senior Democrat who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak publicly. "Imagine where we'll be after six months."


Emphasis added

If there was any doubt in my mind that you've all along been feigning a ridiculous political stance simply to get a rise out of the lefty members of this forum, it has hereby been assuaged.

Buh-bye, Troll.

Rove is no better or worse than Carville. He handed the Dims their electoral asses a few times, so they hate him. Carville did the same to the 'Pubs

Hmm.

Ned goes missing from the Forum for two days during the week. Tolerator goes missing those same two days.

Tolerator comes back the next morning. Ned comes back the next morning, too.

Not that it means anything, of course. <cough>sockpuppet!</cough>

Or I was on jury duty you jackass!

You may have read my posting last week in which I mentioned that I had jury duty coming up.

I assumed they were at some Neo-Con retreat brainstorming for new denigrating nicknames for their favorite Democratic politicians. You think GoreBot and Klinton write themselves? THINK AGAIN!

I've spent the last five and a half years showing such "proof," noob. I've posted, and long since forgotten, 20 times the content you've "produced" here (if squeezing-out such menial mental turds as yours can be considered productive).

The fact you have a problem with my status as a longtime, reasonably well respected contributor to this place is, frankly, pretty fucking childish ... albeit on a par with your miserable capacity for critical thought, I suppose.

Of course! WebTrollCon '07 was this week!

I totally spaced that.

My apologies, Ned and Tolerator, for casting doubt on your sterling reputation.

I mean, reputations.
