I believe the Democrats
are days, hours, or maybe even minutes away from losing the
next presidential election.
Very soon a Republican is going to enter articles of
impeachment against Bush and Cheney and other Republicans are
going to jump on the band wagon before the Democrats
understand what has happened to them. Republicans no
longer need Bush and Cheney. These guys couldn't have
done a better job while appearing totally incompetent.
They've accomplished so much: The Constitution has
been defanged of civil protections, Iraq's Oil has been
converted to US control, the treasury has been wiped clean
(allowing unwanted social programs now to be put to
rest), tax legislation to benefit the rich is working as
All the ill feeling that was engendered along the way
resides with the guys in the White House. All that needs
to be done is to dump them and whoever does it will win the
next election. The Democrats are too afraid to do it.
The Republicans know which side of their bread is buttered.
Some people say there have been no polls dealing with
impeachment, but there have been polls. They just
haven't been published. When the numbers are right--and
they are probably right on target as I speak--Bush and his
gang will be thrown overboard.
Bush and Cheney will retire in comfort with the quiet
praise of their party. They will be pardoned
by the next Republican President so that neither one will
pay a price for their treason, and Republicans will
continue their march. The public will be left believing
that it was Republicans who saved us all from
disaster. After all, they protected the homeland from
any additional terrorist attacks; they saved us from the
economic ravages that might have resulted had we run out of
oil, for with Iraq under our control we won't run out of oil
anytime soon. And they threw out the incompetents when
it finally became clear that the White House was leading us
Not a bad perspective if you're a Republican.
Anyone want to place a bet?
