1. I recommend
that DUers make a point of watching Matthews' show Hardball as many nights as possible for the next ten days.

4. Katie......
"why should the American people care about this"? :eyes:

Nothing new here, but the fact the MSM is covering it (finally) in the fashion it deserves and that bush wants not to discuss it at all is interesting. Are they trying to prepare Americans for something bigger than we expect?

Stay tuned. Same bat time, same bat channel!

7. Beware...it's only temporary...
Tweety knows bad is coming down. I think he's smart enough and knows enough people.

Be prepared for him to turn afterwards when more evidence comes down. The rw spin machine will be in full swing...it'll be enough to change the rotation of the earth and he'll be pushing it along.

6. This Third Person Crap Irks Me...Tweety Was Involved
He said "we all knew 2 years ago this was all about two people...Rove and Libby". We did? Maybe you did, Tweety...cause you were on the horn with them constantly to get the latest spin points. The fact this scumbag doesn't make known he was interviewed in this case...as well as Russert & Mrs. Andrea Mitchell-Greenspan...means they're not curious bystanders or honest brokers in giving any analysis on this topic. All he's doing is GE corporate spin.

Also, Tweety still holds that Wilson somehow wasn't being truthful about his trip to Niger...saying that Wilson's coming out and telling the truth is still "alleged". Sorry, if that were the case, we wouldn't be seeing a Prosecutor so busy trying to find why national secrets were compromised.

Then Tweety mentions how this is "hardball"...when someone questions this authority, that it's assumed and acceptable for the powerful to do anything in their power to discredit. Shameful. If Tweety were a real journalist, not a corporate shill, he'd be pissed about being used and want to come clean with how he'd been played. Hardball? More like spitballs.

Oh...and while we're at it...IIRC, Tweety claimed he supported the Iraq invasion strictly on the WMD issue. Just like O'Reilly, he claimed that if there was proof that these weapons didn't exist and the invasion was based on faulty intel, then he'd never "trust this president again". Well, Tweety...it's two plus years, no WMDs, Wilson is right...we're waiting...

:sarcasm:

10. HE, plain and simple, a piece of worthless shit....
I turn him off...

He was so obsessed with the peccadilloing penis that he forgot how great Clinton was for the country...

And don;t forget ho he swooned like a school girl when Bush waled across the floating tarmac beneath the Missing Accomplished sign,,,

12. He Needs To Be Discredited
Dare I say I turned Matthews off over a decade ago when he was the "obnoxious liberal" on the McLauglin Group and spent more time either oogling at Eleanor Clift or trying to humiliate her.

The deal here is Tweety is playing analyist in a case he's directly tied into. He knew for two years...until Lawrence O'Donnell broke the story...that Rove leaked Plame's name. He was the first person I remember hearing mention Libby's name...then shutting up like a clam ever since.

Tweety participated in the cover-up of this scandal and did a lot of water carrying for this regime. He shouldn't just be dismissed...he should be called into accountability.

Peace...

11. How ready could the families of the military , or the military themselves
be? Never ready enough, IMO. These people, for the most part are the most betrayed. They believed in this president. At least we didn't, and are more than ready for it to hit the fan. These people will have a second definition of shell shocked. I feel sorry for them. There are many reasons why they believed Bush, some for patriotic reasons, some for religious reasons, some for the reasons of simple naivety. Yes, I'm sure some are ignorant by choice, or even war mongers themselves, but I wonder how many? That might just be a smaller percentage because it's really an extremist POV, and we know, most people are not extremists.

I wonder their reaction, the emotional toll this will take, once it sinks in and the action they take once it hits them square in the gut.

Can they ever be prepared for this truth? I think half the problem some of the families of the soldiers who did die, have, is that they just have to keep believing in Bush's "noble cause" because without it, it would mean "for fucking nothing but greed and lies". How will they cope? God knows, and God bless them through this.

My heart aches for everyone, especially these families and those in Iraq. The steepest price was paid, by them.

There was a thread here before about a CSPAN caller who said Bush should be tried and executed.

He is DAMN RIGHT. If this isn't reason enough, then there is no reason for laws AT ALL.

9. Also did anyone notice that he keeps referring to Karl Rove and
the "Vice-President's office", not Libby.

15. The Niger docs are not a case of he said/he said
Matthews makes it sound like it was a matter of opinion (or attack politics) that the Niger docs were forgeries.

The docs were PROVABLY FALSE. End of story. Wilson is a patriot of the highest order. He is fighting with the greatest powers in our country, with truth on his side.
