Rove and Bush Will NOT Depart Gracefully

By Melinda Pillsbury-Foster  Posted by Rob Kall (about the submitter)       (Page 1 of 2 pages)   No comments
When we think of Karl Rove and his cadre of cronies and clowns we forget the
Karl Rove who started as the chubby little nerd on the play ground, scared
of the bullies but determined to win by other means.

Now, when it looks as if George W. might be going down it is doubly
important not to take for granted that they'll depart gracefully. Consider
what they are willing to do to hold on to power.

Really, think about it. Losing may not be just leaving office; but also
facing prison time.

Someone like Rove, who sees contingency in terms of layers upon layers,
secrets within secrets, has had years to plan his game. You will witness the
introduction of those contingencies, seeing how they float, the abandoning those that
don't, and a keen focus on those that play well in Peoria.

Slight-of-hand Rove will pull out every trick he
has ever learned, while relying heavily on the network of political cronies
who he can trust because he owns them. Old J. Edgar's files of nasty
facts look like a child's trivia compared to what Rove has assembled.

Get ready to really find out who these people are.

Consider every facet of government and the corporate world that
is aligned with Rove and Company, and consider how it can be controverted
to other purposes. Team Turd Blossom will apply the lessons of life in ways
that would turn any decent American's stomach. Remember, these
are the experts, true professionals at playing dirty.

Who and what the NeoCons are is a continuation of grade school on
steroids. They did not grow up, they simply lost their hair. So it is
time to consider again in more detail the Rules for NeoCons.

Rove was an eager learner, observing the schemes and ploys of those he
got to know who were successful. Rove was first hired on, still
sprouting a full fledged case of teen aged acne, by George H. W. Bush in the
early days of Watergate. What were Rove's skills that attracted the
Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Mr. Bush? It was
because of young Rove's promise as a political trickster. Rove had successfully
stolen a Young Republican election and boasted about trashing a local
legislative race to favor the Republican. Papa Bush recognized rookie talent.

Rove therefore had a front row seat in studying the clever machinations of
Papa Bush at first hand. That was the early 70s and Papa Bush was then
putting the finishing touches on his take over of the Environmental
Movement, a move he, Maurice Strong and OR Anderson had planned to stave
off the ominous threat of alternative energy thus ensuring that the bottom line of
oil profits stayed burnished for many happy years to come.

Bear in mind that it was Bush W.'s father the good Senator who first
introduced America to Richard Nixon of Watergate fame back in the
early 1950's.

Just picture in your mind, Rove, his eyes alight with excitement, making note of
how to hijack a movement by quickly building an alternative in its place
to deflect credit, interest and income. Adding this sneak attack to his
growing book of dirty tricks must have sent shivers of delight down his
soft spine.

And they probably conned you, too - remember Earth Day?

If you celebrate Earth Day in April you were conned by the people who
did so much to teach Rove his trade. The real Earth Day takes place at
the United Nations on the Spring Equinox with the ringing of the Peace
Bell. The commercialized Earth Day takes place on April 22nd the anniversary
of the McCarthy/Nixon televised hearings on the infamous 'Red Scare'.

The original Environmental Movement, focused on educating people to the
on viable alternative energy options they could use to replace oil fizzled out like a
wet fire cracker. Most of the Left accepted the ploy and
sent checks to support Earth Day April 22. You can't give them any credit for discernment.

They had been raped and haven't even noticed.
