AG Gonzales is a Weenie and the Prez is Insane

It’s no secret that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has balls the size of BB’s. And it’s no secret that the President of the United States is gibbering like a monkey in a zoo. These two facts make a New York Times headline this morning an impossibility: "Bush Blocked Ethics Inquiry, Gonzales Says". George W. Bush makes no decisions and engages in no acts that are not sanctioned by Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. Likewise, the Attorney General makes no decisions and engages in no acts that are not initiated by Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. The lead in the NYT story reports, “Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that President Bush had personally decided to block the Justice Department ethics unit from examining the role played by government lawyers in approving the National Security Agency’s domestic eavesdropping program.” George W. Bush most assuredly did not personally decide to block the DOJ from examining the NSA’s wiretap program. He wouldn’t know how. And AG Gonzales would not make that statement unless he had been told to make that statement by Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. So exactly when did the White House Razzle-dazzle team decide to make the president the scapegoat for everything that’s wrong with the Republican Party? Probably about the time they began to leak stories that the Prez was drinking again. That the Prez is being allowed to talk off-the-cuff, or as he would say, “just make it up”, is an about-face from the days when he had to hear answers through an earpiece in order to make it through a press conference. And George W. Bush is so out of it he does not realize he’s been set up. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Arlen Specter (R-PA) asked Gonzales, “Why wasn’t O.P.R. (Office of Professional Responsibility) given clearance as so many other lawyers in the Department of Justice were given clearance?” Gonzales said, “The president of the United States makes decisions about who is ultimately given access…he makes the decision because this is such an important program.” What a load of crap. Two-to-one, they’ve sold you out, Mr. President. Now that Bush has been taken off the leash, he can say anything he wants to say anywhere in the world and make a total jackass of himself any day of the week. But the thing he cannot do is make decisions. And the Mainstream Media is complicit in this plan to saddle the Prez with the blame for everything from global warming to Israel’s bombing of Lebanon. The MSM keeps saying, “the president decided” and “the president says” and “the president believes”, when the MSM knows full well the president is incapable of deciding what color shirt to put on in the morning. When GWB has been totally discredited, who will ride in to save the world? George W. Bush with brains, wit and charm: John McCain. A more frightening and deadly combination one cannot imagine.

How John McCain fits into this, I have no idea. Maybe a justified fear of McCain is having too much influence on the interpretation of events.

I think it more likely they are not selling out Bush, but that by giving credit to Bush they hope to make the decision part of his imperial prerogative. It’s like when Bush said he ‘declassified’ the Wilsongate propaganda: because the Leader did it, it’s ‘legal’.

I don’t know why people spent even a minute rejoicing over the Supreme Court decision that there was no such imperial prerogative. There shouldn’t have been a single dissenter from that view, but there were four (counting Roberts). Also anyone who thought the Bushists would rein themselves in was living in a Happy Days episode (i.e., was maladjusted to the times).
