Don't let the White House win with Supreme Nomination distraction tactic
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 01:04 PM by DemsUnited
Obviously, the story had legs and was running out from around the beltway fast, far, and furious.

All of the Repugs talking points to exonerate Rove were stupid on their face AND being refuted by new facts.

But the real problem was that the MSM was beginning to connect the dots back to war "justification", Cheney's office, and even Bush himself.

The more this story unfolds, the more people are becoming tainted.

Our job is to KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!! A White House engulged in treason and scandal is easier to battle on ALL fronts, including the Supreme Court nominee!!!

1. Tie it in!
It's hilarious that there were at least three leaks yesterday (It's Edith Clement; no, its not it's Edith Jones; no, its not her either) in the story that was supposed to divert us from leaks...

But on top of that there's a story somehwere here today discussing Lieberman and Roberts that suggests that Rove was involved with PICKING Roberts...how is it that a security risk and traitor gets to pick a Supreme Court justice?

3. Rove is the distraction.
The make up of the Supreme Court is the most important issue of this presidency.

6. Agree with the absolute importance of a Supreme Court nominee
BUT a White House stripped of credibility and mired in scandal is easier to fight. They know it, which is why they want MSM attention away from the Valerie Plame scandal and they want to rush Roberts through the nomination process before Fitgerald wraps up his investigation.

8. The time to fight a Supreme Court nominee was November 2004.
Now, in July 2005, it is pretty much too late.

11. There were no vacancies in 2004
We lost the election so you just give up? The supreme court is much more important the Rove.

4. They won yesterday, when they actually came out and said
that they were going to be naming the nominee as a distraction.

And the fucking media went right along with it, as though it were standard procedure. The stupid ass talking heads just said things like "Huh, that's interesting. It will be neat to see who he picks"

they dont even care that they are being used and manipulated like the tools they are.

7. Wasn't that the most sweetly delusional thing???
Like a grand jury will go away without headlines. Awww. They just aren't too reality-based, are they?

12. But, reality doesn't say what you want to hear
That seems to be the administrations biggest beef with reality.

5. We don't have to do a thing about Rove.
We have no influence on the grand jury. When it makes its decision, Rove will be headlines again.

Republicans: Anti-abortion, Pro-treason.

10. I dissagree
The Dems (and bloggers) should stay on point and tie it down with something like:
The Republicans could not find it in themselves to make a stand against violations of our National Security and treason, in fact, they lied about it to the American people, yet they want us to accept the concept that they have our best interest in mind when they appoint judges?
I don't think so.

9. I dont think the two issues are related
at least not directly

The fact is theres a supreme court vacancy that needs to be filled.
