Deadeye Dick And The Darkside

Anyone check out Frontline last night, the story of Dick Cheney and the war on terror? Any opinions? Much of what was aired last night can be found in "The One Percent Doctrine" by Ron Suskind.

Obviously there's a problem with terrorism in this world. And much of this terrorism would seem to be exclusively our problem. And there's no getting around the fact that we have to deal with terrorism, often, militarily - that is, when we can locate the bad guys. But watching the frontline story of Deadeye Dick - costarring Donald Rumsfeld, and in a lesser role, George W. Bush - I was overwhelmed by the notion that perhaps we have the wrong guys in charge. Maybe we could use a little fresh blood in the decision making process up there in the White House? Let's face it, what these boys have accomplished in Iraq was the opposite of what they intended, because what they've done is created a terrorists state. Now, sure, that wasn't the plan - the plan was being greeted as liberators - but when you got a pair of jokers ignoring reality because they really want something else, then you got a problem. Or, I should say: we have a problem. A problem that's not going away.

I know, for some people, impeachment is an ugly word. But our founding father's added it to the constitution for a reason. And maybe we should look to our founding fathers for a little guidence in this area. I think Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, et al, would pretty much agree what we really need at this hour is a trapdoor, right there in the Oval Ofiice, and use the damn thing. And the sooner the better. I think they all got a little brush to clear, don't they, back there at Crawford? Some wing shooting to catch up with?

Well..... IMPEACH is a strong word. As I have said many times..... I dislike politics.... I also dislike the majority of politicians..... it is NOT just one or two at the top if you are going to start impeaching folks...... there are tons of members of the House and the Senate who need to be cleared out also. The problem, from THIS layman's point of view...... is we have TOO MANY CHIEFS and NOT enough INDIANS! Everything that I have ever seen in government..... dating back to Vietnam..... is STATUS QUO. Don't rock the boat..... let the other guy do it..... and on and on...... basically two steps forward, three steps back.

You want to start with a CLEAN SLATE? You want to start with the game at ZERO again? You want to NOT have all the LOBBYISTS? Well my old friend.... the only way that is ever going to happen.... is in YOURS and MY DREAMS!

Great thoughts.... but not realistic.

Just my opinion.

Iraq was a terrorist state under the rule of Saddam. Now it has an anti-terrorist democraticly elected government bent on fighting terrorism.

I must say, frankly, that the War in Iraq is going about as well as a war can go. And I it seems pretty clear that its a good cause, and is making the world safer.

Impeachment? Heavens no! Here's something to appease everyone (and it's been done successfully already). Start with the President and go down the line of succession until we find the one good citizen worthy of leading this country. Give each person the Medal of Freedom. "Here's your Medal of Freedom. Thank you for your service. Now, get the heck out of Washington!" George can go to Crawford. Dick can hunt in Wyoming and cash in on his Halliburton stock. Hastert could rely on connections he's made. Etc. Why Washington nights would be aglow with grand farewell parties! Now, let's see, how many medals need to be minted...
Plus, let's remember, they've got pensions and health care for life. They'll do just fine.

I saw that documentary. Really disturbing that there is so much obvious manipulation of the CIA, mass resignations, etc.

It made me wonder, if watergate happened today, would there be any response at all.
After all the outing of Valerie Plame was a treasonous offense, but it seems, not the least of them.
