45. You are proposing ....
that EVERYONE stop discussing the Niger report, ... because it 'wastes energy' ....

EVEN though it has provided OODLES of traction in the polls and with the attitudes of the electorate against the Bush regime ....

And YOU want to stop discussing it .......

WHY ? ...

WHY does this smack of GOP apologia ? ....

WHY do you wish us to be 'non partisan' with an EXTREMELY partisan pResident of an EXTREMELY partisan party ? ....

Honestly ..... do you think that the 'head in the sand-get along by going along' approach is going to work this time around ? ...

No ..... No no no and NO ! ......

IF you havent a desire to stand up for your 'partisan' beliefs, then you havent a philosophical basis for dissenting against its antithesis .....

You dont seem to understand this: .. > Just by TALKING of impeachment, it plants seeds of doubt into the minds of millions of former 'believers in the faith' ..... Impeachment doesnt have to be ABSOLUTELY viable to have a desireable effect .... it doesnt have to LEAD to impeachment, but only in the DOUBT of the veracity of the administration .....

The Niger Report is NOT alone: .. the claims of the Aluminum tubes, the 'chemical trucks', the ties to Al Qaeda, the imminence of an attack against US interests by Iraqi WMD's ... IE ALL the supposed assertions regarding the 'case for war' are now beginning to look like chopped liver to MANY americans who formerly 'trusted' this administration to 'tell the truth' .....

ALL of this 'doubt' has been buttressed by the admission BY THE WHITE HOUSE, that the Niger report was INDEED forged ...... and now the PROCESS of verifying intelligence claims can NOW be extended to the other assertions used by this cabal to justify war ...... ALL the other points used in the case for war have become extremely doubtful because of this admission ....

You say the American people are convinced that overthrowing Saddam Hussein was a good thing ..... and I am inclined to agree with that assertion myself .. it IS a good thing to overthrow vicious Stalinistic tyrants, ESPECIALLY those who were good friends of the GOP only 13 years ago .....

Its also nice to drive a nice new car: .... but would it be right to STEAL that car to do so ? .........

Look: .. if you ARENT INTERESTED in indicting this MISadministration for its failures and missteps, and you generally AGREE with the direction this country is in: .... then you havent any reason to vote againt George W. Bush in 2004 ..... and you havent any reason to form arguments against Bush and the GOP holding power ..... and perhaps you might STOP using arguments against them ......

Dont ask us to do the same: .. we ARE partisans, we DO reject this administration of dangerous numbskulls .... we will not stand down because you feel uncomfortable about doubting the truthfulness of George W. Bush and his henchmen .....
