Which is to not fight him until the confirmation hearings start in September?

Until then, we should just keep saying "we'll see what comes out during confirmation hearings, we don't know much about this guy". And quietly do research in the background.

Until then, let's clear the stage for Rovegate. That'll make sure that by the time the confirmation battle starts, BushCo will be even weaker politically.

1. I just had to remind some nutcase that the grand jury is still there.
They just can't seem to look beyond today's republican headlines. Jeez I can't stand a fool.

2. Dig up the dirt on the guy
That's about all that can be done between now and then. Out every shred of dirt you can find. It's spaghetti time, throw it all at the wall and see what sticks.

It's possible that somewhere there's a guy like Gannon somewhere....

3. I Agree
We'll have time to dig up dirt and fight when the time comes. Much more work to be done until then...

4. I agree!
There is little to be gained by blowing our lids and spinning our wheels...the time between now and then can certainly be used for good causes.

7. Damaging Roberts is important.
Damaging Bush is, too. By weakening the administration, it makes fighting Roberts much easier.

9. Let's Keep Hammering the Nail that is Bush
I totally agree that we should use whatever (peaceful) means at our disposal to discredit and weaken this administration. Whether the issue is the Downing Street Memo, Karl Rove, or the horrific nightmare that is the so called War in Iraq, we must continue to dig, pound, write, protest, and push, push push til we turn the tide against Bush.

And of course at the end of a day of activism, let's not forget to get together and sing, laugh and dance. Unlike our Repug brethen, we liberals like to have fun!!!


They may have the money and power, but we got music, love, vision and SPUNK!!!!!



:bounce: :kick:
