Richard Armitage has admitted being the headwaters of the Plamegate tempest turned evil machiavellian Whitehouse scandal. The issue may now die an ignomonious death with hardly a MSM murmur of apology or even an indignant reprimand from the Whitehouse. George Bush assumed office saying that he wanted to bring a new kinder, gentler atmosphere of peace and cooperation to Washington. His one veto in six years seems to support his ecumenical, Methodist philosophy and contrary to the moonbat conspiracy theories of “a vicious smear campaign against Ambassador Wilson,” the Bush Administration has not engaged in the vigorous damage control employed by the Clinton Administration.
The same could be said for his political agenda and efforts which could be described as an anemic “Conservative Lite.” Other than going after Bin Laden in Afghanistan and Hussein in Iraq, many believe he has been too timid in confronting opponents or championing conservative causes. With majorities in both Houses of Congress, we expected a forceful Executive to roll back the travesties of a forty year liberal reign but, although a good man, President Bush has not been that Executive. Unfortunately, we may have to wait until Jan 2008 to see we that kind of President back at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Doubly unfortunate, it could well be Hillary Rodham Clinton who, as we all know, can handle a shiv about as well as anyone. She has many years of combat experience in the War Rooms of Bill Clinton and she can assemble a veteran team of propagandists, spinners and back alley assassins that Conservatives only dream about. We see the vestiges of the Democrat machine at work against ABC and the “The Path to 9/11.” As in Palestine or Iraq, a “softly, softly policy” against the Dems has left them alive and rabid for another shot at power.
For all the moonbat talk of "Republican Brownshirts," if HRC is our next President we can expect many nights of “Long knives” and we will get to see a forceful, “take no prisoners Commander-in-Chief” but not the one we wished for.
