I feel like a Black Republican

G Dub representing Crawford

Now following the trial of Dick Cheney's former right hand man may seem super blogger egghead but I assure you if you take a day and get caught up on the trial you will find it jut as interesting as the Irv Gotti or Supreme trial. You have intimidation, snitches, and solders falling on their swords. Great stuff.

Every day you see how the White House has sold Scooter out.
The Nixonian level of paranoia from Buckshot Chaney as he ordered aides to transcribe the news show 'Hardball' so he could follow the coverage of the liberal media.
Former press secretary Ari Fleisher pleading the 5th then getting an immunity deal. He then proceeded to drop dime on Scooter. Big time snitch. (I can see the official White House 'stop snitching' T's for sale).

The level of gangsterdom (is that a word?) from George Bush is straight out of a trap star fantasy. And even as his approval ratings drop to the 20’s and his party turns against him your man G Dub is focused. He has been focused since he lied in the State of The Union speech in question. Focused as the Republicans caught major L's in the latest election. Focused in the face of death. Why?

The common answer is his legacy. He has to see this war through and dump this on the next President. McCain, Romney, Hagel, Clinton, Giuliani, or Obama.

There’s that answer and also that he is just stupid. Now, he may be stupid but Condy, Rove, Armitage, and Buckshot are not. Let's be clear.

What if there is another answer. What if G Dub is a real life Jack Bauer? A somewhat insane patriot whose ends justify the means. Now I am no Republican (not a Democrat either – they are all hustlers. I am Independent. I support those who speak for me regardless of party affiliation), but we must consider this.

On one hand there have been laws broken, parts of the Constitution have been ignored, men and women gave died in Afghanistan and Iraq but there have been no attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11. Someone has to get credit for that. And if G Dub is going take all the heat for the bad he has to get some credit for the good. The Democrats will have no blood on their hands but also no glory when the history books are written.

The administration has long taken the stand that they know more than us. They have more classified intel than us and therefore have the ability to make more of an informed decision. Now this is an easy out for a bunch of criminals but it may also be the truth. Maybe there is some Russian ex pat getting a bag held over his head, and a cattle prod in the bum giving up the location of some terrorist cell. And we found him by illegal wiretapping, and water boarding his comrade down in Cuba.

There has to be something going on because these dudes are going down in flames clutching this failed policy as they die. Maybe the reasoning is simple ego. Maybe more.

I don't agree. We haven't even dealt with the person(s) that made the attacks in the first place. Troops were sent to Iraq based on the possibility of weapons of mass destruction, which were never there. I still don't see the connection between Iraq and Bin Laden, and now we are liberators??? Just because nothing has popped off yet, doesn't mean it can't or won't happen. C'mon fam, I really hope you are just playing devil's advocate on this one...

I am playing Devil's Advocate

Why don't you think there hasn't been an attack since 9/11

I just think these cats are just patient...I believe the last attack took 4 years to carry out, so these dudes are not in a rush. Has the Bush administration made things a little harder for them, yes. However, believe that if someone wants to get something done, they will find a way to do it. If anything, I think we've made more enemies than we had before 9/11..
