Skip to comments.Bush Suggests More Targets For Congressional Probes
Posted on 04/26/2007 9:02:03 AM PDT by The Blitherer
(2007-04-26) White House sources say President George Bush has given Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi a list of administration officials who would make good targets for Congressional probes as part of Mr. Bushs strategy to keep Democrats preoccupied with investigations and thus distracted from implementing their legislative agenda.
The news of the Bush strategy comes as Congressional committees have called for additional testimony from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice over the pre-Iraq War claim that Saddam Hussein sought uranium from Niger, and from Justice Department deputy Monica Goodling, over claims that the Bush administration fired eight political appointees for political reasons.
Unnamed administration sources say the president is pleased as punch with the way ongoing probes of his appointees have delayed implementation of the Democrats tax and spend agenda.
George Bush is already shaping up to be the most effective lame duck president in American history, said one unnamed source. Who would have thought it could be so easy to stymie the Democrats. It reminds me of Muhammad Alis rope-a-dope tactic.
Scott Ott bump.
Seems like a long time since I heard people talking about “strategery” around here.
But I’m not sure it’s needed. Pelosi and Reid and Waxman and Co. seem determined to shoot themselves in the foot.
I say 10 posts before someone flips out and goes postal on Bush.
good old scrappleface
Time was, you could read a headline on FR and immediately know it was Scrappleface.
These days, the lines aren't so clear.
Those Dems....always under estimating Bush and his “strategery”. :) LOL
