Will Republicans Find the Courage to Tell Bush and Cheney It Is Time To Go?


by Rob Kall

I know it will be terribly difficult to face the fact that their control of the Whitehouse must end, even harder to let go of that control.

But if the Republican party is to survive, it must face the fact that Bush and Cheney have been the worst executive team ever to hold office. The Republicans must face the reality that their party could literally become extinct if they passively sit by and allow Bush and Cheney to continue the incredibly destructive job of leadership they have been doing the past six years.

It is not just about saving their party. It is about saving the nation. The US is no longer tumbling down an economic and diplomatic fall. It is plummetting down, losing economic viability, losing allies, becoming the planetary pariah that was once the role of Bush.

Bush is already among the walking dead. His secretary of state is one of the most ineffective, useless ever. His appointees have, deservedly, earned the mistrust of the world. Why would anyone trust ANY of the appointees Bush has chosen?

1. That would be certainly a way to show that real republicans are
....willing to bring the country together, but my fear is this won't happen. So, the democratic majority will have to take the lead on this.

2. Republicans? Courage?
I think my brain just shorted out from cognitive dissonance.

5. I'm not a Republican, but I'll be happy to break the news to them

6. Whuh? So they can salute President Pelosi in her first State of the Union address?
Not a chance.

Republicans have to ride out the next couple of years and hope that people think it was the Democrats that got the country in a mess in 2008.

That's their game.
