Skip to comments.A little birdie told me what the Rove thing is all about.

Dont ask me, because you know I wont tell you how I came across this information.
Here is the scoop.
This is all about the Supreme Court.
With the knowledge that Rove was Matthew Coopers background source regarding the Plame incident, no matter the fact that no laws were broken, the Democrats leaped upon the matter as a way for Democrats and the MSM to possibly prevent Bush from changing the makeup of the Supreme Court. Under normal circumstances, Democrats cannot stop Bush from reshaping the Supreme Court, and that has Democrats terrified. They cannot sustain a Filibuster without Frist invoking the Nuclear Option on them, so they only have one last option, which is now underway.
The Democrats must demonize Bush to the degree that they can then begin their long-awaited impeachment articles, with the MSM in tow. If Congress can introduce articles of impeachment against Bush, then the MSM will demand that Bush postpone any nominations to the Supreme Court until the matter is decided. It is the only hope they have left of preventing a Conservative Supreme Court from taking hold, and if they do not accomplish this, the flow of money into Democratic coffers will stop instantaneously.
Next week, you will begin to hear Democrats suggesting that if Bush does not fire Karl Rove, then he is guilty of Obstruction of Justice and Lying to the American People in order to protect a friend. The Media will play along dutifully, because it was there idea in the first place.
Forget about Judith Miller.
Because the Special Prosecutor has asked the White House not to discuss the matter, no one will be able to inform Miller or the NY Times on how Miller should lie to save herself. Without that knowledge, the Times will not let her testify at all. They are paying her to be silent, and it is they who are actually guilty of Obstruction of Justice Miller knows who the leaker is, and you all know who I believe that person to be.
What you all are about to see, is the most coordinated, vicious attack ever in the history of Politics against this administration, because those involved have everything at stake. Without control of the Supreme Court, the Liberal agenda is dead for the next 30-40 years. All of their Environmental nonsense, Abortion, Private Property, Affirmative Action and Civil Rights issues go right down the tubes.
The Bush Administration is aware of what is to come, and might be able to prevent it with a little inside baseball but the looniest on the left will attempt this no matter what the outcome.
Expect editorials next week, arguing whether or not it is fair for a president who stole the first election and won the second election by the smallest margin of any incumbent President who is embroiled in a National Security Scandal to be deciding on the makeup of the Supreme Court. At the same time, Liberal Senators will begin to suggest that Conformation hearings on anyone Bush selects should be postponed until the investigations are over. Unfortunately for our side, they have an alley in one Arlen Specter. They will be leaning heavily on him to go along with delayed hearings. Specter is already angry with Bush over the Stem-cell research issue.
Will it work? No. Why? Because Bush understands the law, and also understands (with Roves help) that no matter how loud and long the Democrats scream, they and the MSM really cant do anything about the Supreme Court, but can effect public opinion. Bush, by telling Republicans to shut up about his choice, has set precedent for when he tells (by his Supreme Court selections) the Democrats the same thing. If he ignores both sides, he can just choose who he wants, and that is exactly what he will do.
So get ready for an ugly, ugly Summer and Fall. Dont expect to hear much from Bush on Rove, or the Courts after he makes his selections. Republicans in Congress will also be silent (except Specter and Hagel) and will not risk their own re-elections and legacies to side with Democrats this time round.
So there it is, take it or leave it. I wont answer any questions about how or where I got the information, so dont ask me.
interesting. and not below the filthy animal demoncraps.
Kill A Commie For Mommie
I'll buy that.
I might believe you had some inside connections if you could spell properly.
Do you have any genuine sources, or is this just your theory? No need to reveal these "sources" but what is the nature of your sources? Be honest.
If that's the best the Dems can do they are going the way of the Whigs. The Rove thing doesn't have legs. The real funny (or maybe sad) thing is the Beltway types think it does.
And if it's all about the courts, then essentially this is all about abortion.
If this assault is planned, I hope to God that you are right and we will hold the ground. I just wish we could fight back.
Can we fight back against this smear campaign?
I've been out for a while. Whom do you think the leaker is?
Pitifully, this all looks correct to me.
Thanks for the info!
You are right. The Beltway types will be screaming shortly about "How come there is no outrage over this by the general public! The Apathy of the American Electorate is at an all time high. This is why W won!" and other stupid talk.
Karl Rove leaked this to you, right??????????????
check this out *ping*
Who told Miller?
If you don't want to be believed, why did you post this? And no one is asking you to reveal names, merely the nature of your sources.
I expect Bush to name nominee tomorrow or Monday. And if/when the Chief Justice resigns, that name will come almost immediately.....unless he dies suddenly, which of course will lead to an appropriate mourning period prior to the naming of a replacement.
As a last resort, couldn't Bush defuse the situation with Rove's resignation? Isn't that the essense of the leftist attack? I mean, before it gets so drastic as for the nominating process to be stalled. Just a thought.
Most people don't even care about this story so once again the Dems are wasting their time. But it's not like they have anything more productive to do anyway.
Hope you're right...and I hope the rats implode into vapor.
Hmmm...I wonder where they got that idea?
I'm just a rebel.
Senator John Kerry 'Outs' CIA Agent?
There is not a chance that they can get an Impeachment campaign going.
They might think that this is their last best chance to save American Socialism, but they will invite a backlash that registers a 9.9 on the Wellstonian Funeral scale if they try it.
Well well. And it doesn't surprise me. But for God's sake, we are at WAR here and we have at least a dozen other high priority agenda items that government needs to fix. And this is how the dums intend to spend their time. All this does is divert attention to real issues. I can't stand it anymore. WAKE UP AMERICA!
I was wondering about the timing of all this and what you say makes sense in that regard....so what to do?
You will if I subpoena your a$$.
I'm sorry folks but Rove screwed up. And he put Bush in an embarrassing situation because Bush said he would fire whoever was responsible. Ditch him. Move on and get back to the real business.
Bush should call Dingy Harry and tell him to bring it on. This story has no legs no matter how hard the left and their media sycophants try to push it. This is D.O.A. As such, I hope they try it. It's going to blow up spectacularly in their faces.
Just taking this on face value for the sake of argument, your description would rhetorically provide the "extraordinary circumstances" that the Democrats would need to allege in order to sustain a filibuster under the prior agreement. If the legitimacy of the presidency is in serious dispute (i.e., the White House under indictment or threat of indictment) then the reasoning would be that it all needs to be resolved before a Supreme Court justice could be nominated. Of course, that's nonsense, but whatever.
PFC...Bush never said he would fire anyone. Please get your "facts" straight.
Unfortunately, the Democrats have been making hay out of this since 2003. That kind of blows up the theory that this has a lot to do with a 2005 Supreme Court vacancy.
Frankly, the reason I'm asking is because nothing you wrote seems to be "inside" info but things that have been posted here for the past few days.
I couldn't care less if you don't want questions asked, I'll ask. If you want to post commonly accepted ideas which anyone could come up with--editorials will criticize Bush--gee, ya think?--and expect people to just bow down and accept them, that's fine too. Maybe in your world when someone says "Don't ask questions" you comply. Not me.
I disagree. When the whole truth comes out about this, it is going to be really bad. For the dems, not Bush.
Who might the leaker be?
To introduce articles of impeachment a majority of House members must vote for them.
Doesn't seem likely. The House members would probably require some, like, ya know, actual evidence?
The House of Representatives voted on four articles of impeachment on December 19, 1998, passing two of them
I'm not sure asking for Rove's resignation would defuse the situation....it might inflame it more by the lib's going public claiming that Rove was just covering for Bush and that's why Bush asked for his resignation.
