Why the Rove case is Pertinent to Robert's Selection
The Valerie Wilson scandal case goes to the heart of the matter of trust. Should we trust GW Bush? Should we trust a man who appointed someone in his administration who revealed the identity of a National Security Asset? Even if Karl Rove did not do it 'intentionally', which I do not believe to be the case, he exercised extreme bad judgment when talking to Matt Cooper - bad judgment which had a chilling effect on our Nation's security.

GW Bush has shown in more than one instance his judgment of character is suspect. Rove; Donald Rumsfeld, perhaps one of the most incompetent SOD's this nation has ever had; Condeleeza Rice, whose lackadaisical attitude toward terrorism in the summer 2001 contributed to the worst tragedy this nation has ever suffered; Ken Lay...the list goes on and on.

Why should we as a Nation trust a man who has such a poor track record in the area of appointees? Why should we roll over and let this President pick a Supreme Court Justice who perhaps will sit in judgment over this Nations policies for the better part of a generation?

The Rove scandal shows we cannot. It must be pursued with vigor. We must investigate this nominee with a powerful magnifying glass; find the potential weaknesses that GW Bush cannot see. It all ties together. DSM, Rove, Rogers...all are aspects of the failure of judgment that permeates the GW Bush administration.

2. beautiful
these two stories tie to together -if we can manage it.
should this be the new mantra from the left.

you can't trust Roberts
because you can't trust Bush
because you can't trust anyone involved with this White House?

sounds pretty effective.

5. TRUST is the key.
It is what the Bush imagemakers have cultivated ...it is the root of Bush's power - the feeling of TRUST some people still have for him.

We need to show his judgement is not to be trusted ...he may be a 'great guy to have a beer with' but we must show that guy's judgement is not to be trusted.

Without TRUST, a President cannot effectivwly govern, no matter how good his spin machine is.

8. Thanks for the link
Just had time to read it.

Corporatism sucks.

That is why we must frame the argument agaisnt these guys around TRUST. They cannot be trusted...and without the trust of the ordinary populace, every regime eventually comes tumbling down. Every one.

We The People deserve leaders who can be trusted.
