Our spineless administration

It seems as if, to the extent the administration still retains cajones, they’re put to a single (and laudable) service: we will not arbitrarily withdraw from Iraq. As to everything else, I think Ann Coulter’s latest screed is correct:

Democrats have the breathtaking audacity to claim that Bush’s replacing his own political appointees is “politicizing prosecutions.”

They say this as Sandy Berger walks free after stealing and destroying top-secret national security documents – but Lewis “Scooter” Libby faces decades in prison for not outing a covert agent. (Let’s hope he’s learned his lesson!)

They say this as Rep. William “The Refrigerator” Jefferson sits on the Homeland Security Committee while waiting for the $100,000 found in his freezer to thaw – but Tom DeLay remains under an indictment by some hick prosecutor in Texas for an alleged accounting violation.

They say this as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid draws interest on the sale of a property he sold in a complicated land swindle – but American hero Randy “Duke” Cunningham rots in prison.

They say this while Sen. Chuck Schumer pays no price whatsoever for his Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee having illegally obtained a copy of Republican Lt. Gov. Michael Steele’s credit report, for which one employee, Lauren Weiner, pleaded guilty, but served no prison time.

***

Democrats have created a world in which a DNC card is a “get out of jail free” card, and “guilt beyond a reasonable doubt” means “no doubt the defendant is Republican.” (If Democrats keep this up, they’ll have to rethink their push to give inmates the right to vote.)

Bush should say: “We did it, it was political, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

Then he should start holding hearings on Congress’ obstruction of the war effort. Members of Congress should be asked to come before the administration’s hearings and testify under oath about their commitment to victory. If they are not traitors, what do they have to hide? Surely they will be willing to state under oath that they are not undermining the war effort for partisan political gain.

The hearings could be televised in prime time: “Traitor or No Traitor?”

    Bookworm fears credible analysis of the issues surrounding the AGs, knowing her opinions lack substance and precedent, and thus she favors us with polemics. (It’s what authoritarians do.)

    Bookworm fears that she will actually have to pay you, Greg, in your role as court jester.

    I don’t think you’re worth it, though, given that you aren’t as funny as your other fellow jesters.

    Mullah Cimoc, now that’s a master Jester, right Danny?

    I prefer lethal injections to screed. It takes a slim blond woman to show up the lying hope-we-lose weasles on the left and the cowering republicans on the right.

    I wonder what would happen if GW would come out swinging, instead of always trying to make nice with those that undermine and tear away and him (and our country). I suspect that his ratings would shoot way, way up. Americans love a fighter, a la Teddy Roosevelt.

    Bush tends to actually listen to Democrat criticisms, which the rest of us know better, or should by now. When the Democrats said Bush was too unilateral, guess what happened? Bush became even more multilateral towards Iran and NK. When they said Bush was too much of a war monger, guess what happened? Bush became almost pacifistic in his response to Iran and our enemies, internal and external.

    Bush will change his actions if not his beliefs given enough time or pressure or good arguments, but we do not have the power to harass him 24/7 to bend him to our will. So what usually ends up happening is that Bush sees the irrational Left, and he just ignores all of America except his inner (bad) advisers. This disenfranchises the great majority of American people who honestly want the President to do well, but are drowned out by the hysteria of the Left. Bush after all, isn’t going to be convinced that listening to the “people” is a good idea if the only people he hears is the Left. If all you heard was the Left, you might become brainwashed eventually. Imagine what Bush has to do to filter out the crap.

    There are plenty of people who Bush could benefit from, by listening to their out of the box advice. Neo and Bookworm for example. But yet… it is like a feudal Empire. The Emperor is cut off from the plight of the people, and his corrupt advisers are bringing him down, and the Emperor simply will not strike back with executions and the use of his power and army.

    You see that a lot in Japanese anime, you know. Feudal eras and politics. Not so much for the West. Feudal societies aren’t exactly popular in America. Even if honor is still a vital fabric of American Jacksonian culture. It also isn’t popular inside the US because it wasn’t our history. The Wild West sort of replaced feudalism in a way. Those were the heroes and days. Frontiersmen (knights) protecting against the savage barbarians (Ameri Indians).

    Danny’s right, everyone likes a winner. Even the Left becomes subdued when faced with great victories and joy. More and more I try to analyze how Bush’s alcoholicism affects his thinking and beliefs. Surely Bush tries to control his anger and his instincts. Surely he attempts to be civilized, and fears being called drunk or acting with impaired judgement. But he overcompensates you know. Sort of like how McCain overcompensates for his personal horrors via GitMo. Nobody’s perfect since perfection is the goal of evil and entropy, so I don’t want it at least. But I really wonder what will get Bush to go wild.

    Maybe we already. A 9/11.
