Jay Rockefeller and His Tangled Web
I don't believe Democrat leaders are quite as sanguine as they're pretending to be about the recent election results and President Bush's low approval ratings. They know that to convert these trends into an electoral sweep in 2006 they're either going to have to develop a salable policy blueprint, especially for Iraq, or -- and this is much easier and more likely -- attempt to further scandalize the president.
Could they, as others have suggested, be laying a foundation for a run at impeachment? Why else would they be recycling the outrageous "Bush lied" claims they peddled, unsuccessfully, in 2004?
I know of no other way to combat this deceit than to refute it as often as they serve it up. Otherwise, theirs will be the only voice on the issue, and they'll continue to manipulate public opinion through false pretenses.
The White House appears finally to have awakened from its slumbering naivete, as President Bush shot back last week, rebuking his partisan critics for rewriting history for political profit. But he, too, must realize that a couple of volleys of return fire won't be enough to stave off their ever-advancing forces.

The first time I met this man, Rockefeller, it was in a Kindergarten classroom and he was Governor. He had a harmless snake with him, a garter snake if I remember correctly. I had no idea at the time that the real snake was wearing the suit jacket.
I hear this guy Rockefeller has ties to Big Oil.
That's the Standard line about him.
"...preferring instead to place our very national security in the hands of other corrupt nations..."
I agree it's time to take the gloves off. It's been time. Glad to hear some fighin' words here, lately. We need to 'worry' about placing our very national security in the hands of these freaken corrupt Democrats.
Going off on a trip to advise heads of state WHAT?!!!!!!!!!
I've had it with these scum.
This is just obscene.
There are more of us out here in fly-over country than there are spineless Republican "leaders" in DC. It's time to start writing, calling, and generally raising h*ll about all the CommieDemLib lies.
Interesting post on subject.
"these freaken corrupt Democrats"
And the GOP are just a bunch of honest do-gooders? I don't think so...
Great column! Thanks.
Jack#ss Brayng Rockefeller sounds a lot like a kindergartener who likes to brag about himself.
"... I told each of the heads of state that it was my view that George Bush had already made up his mind to go to war against Iraq, that that was a predetermined set course which had taken shape shortly after 9/11."
Someday a conservative Republican will fill his Senate seat.
COULD THEY????? David - where have you been? The word "impeachment" has been the most over used word for over a year now.
Here the Rockefeller/Democrat foreign policy incoherence is exposed for all to see. They admittedly regarded Saddam's threat to be imminent, yet were unwilling to take preemptive action against Iraq (all the while being on record as having explicitly authorized it), preferring instead to place our very national security in the hands of other corrupt nations and the America-unfriendly United Nations.
They say President Bush is the liar, when they are the ones who voted unconditionally to authorize preemptive action against Iraq and now deny they did, demanding we believe their revisionism instead of our lying eyes. My head is spinning as fast as their talking-point writers.
It's time for the GOP to take its gloves off. This brawl has barely begun.
Indeed it is ..past time.
I think his cousin? Nelson, former governor of New York, had a pump up snake. Anybody remember this?
Senator Jay Rockefeller Gave Syria Advance Warning Of Iraq War Intentions! (FNS Transcript)
Wallace did a superb job on Rockefeller..and Rockefeller was revealed.
Yes. He was Governor of West Virginia from 1977 to 1985. It was in 1979.
Once a jerk always a jerk
Coprrection: The real jerks are the idiots who elect this _____.
You know about John D Rockefeller (from whence his trust fund emantes) owning Standard Oil, which was forced to break up because of anti-trust legislation, right? I believe John D gave the land to the UN to build in NY and that Standard was the first oil company to explore Saudi Arabia. I believe the major leftover company now is Chevron, which the left hates so much.
Thanks for the ping. I am so enraged by Rockefeller who, by his memo alone, should have no credibility in the media. But as with Wilson, it really doesn't matter who the Democrats serve up, the media covers them as if they are the single truth tellers on the scene.
Where Rockefeller is heading I don't know...I think the Democrats simply want to tie the administration in knots and render them powerless while advancing themselves politically.
