This Rove thing is really hitting the fan. First there was Durbin who tried to point Americans to the problem but was ruthlessly burnt. And now the problem (US army atrocities) are going to be all but forgotten just like the Killian documents (Rathergate) all but buried the true story of Bush skipping on Vietnam.. And that’s what Karl Rove is doing…..trying to divert attention from Downing Street Memos, the huge problems in Iraq and a downward spiral of Bush’s poll numbers.
This week has shown exactly what’s wrong with American politics. Everyone knows that Iraq is a mess; Everyone knows that the current administration lied about the war in Iraq; The economy is showing HUGE deficits and this could lead to serious trouble; Yet ALL AMERICANS are focussing on what the other side has said.
