Why do I cringe every time they pick an ex-CIA official to take a high ranking post in the administration? /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

And, it has nothing to do with party affiliation.

This is great news. Maybe now, this new guy will atleast develop a strategy. Bush was mad as hell today, blamed his corrupt fellow republicans, blamed Karl Rove, Guess Karl isn't such a genius after all. I had to laugh, when Bush "Explained" why he had to lie to the country about his intention to axe Rumsfeld after the election. I don't think he would have fired Rummy, if the Repubs had won. He just couldn't take the chance of Rummy, and his documents, coming under the scrutiny of the Democratic Majority, which would surely have happened, when they held investigations into the Rummy led failures in Iraq. Bush's ego wouldn't allow that he be forced to fire Rummy by Democrats. This new guy sounds pretty good to me. I hope he can come up with a reasonable plan for redeployment. Twenty one dead already this month. Murtha was right on the money a year ago. Too bad they wouldn't listen to him.

I remember Rummy when being asked where the WMD's were. He replied, "they are North, South, East and West of Baghdad."
Maybe he should apologise for sacrificing 3000 Americans for the benefit of Exxon Mobile and Haliburton.

LOL...I remember that. Haven't heard many genuinely apologize during this administration, have you? The only genuine apology I've heard was from Richard Clarke, and his apology should have come from Rice and Bush, for refusing to listen to him.

I will be furious if this Baker commission's report calls for redeployment, and we find out that they put off releasing it till after the election. Would Bush have finally gotten rid of him if not for this???

Rumsfeld should consider himself lucky.
They "resigned" our first Secretary of Defense, James Forrestall, by tossing him out of the window at Bethseda (many feel). "Resigning" during a war....that kind of speaks volumes in itself. He should have been on the first Greyhound bus out of D.C. months ago....and would have been, except for Cheney and Bush...the last two to realize Rumsfeld couldn't have directed that war with Grenada.
I hope Rummy's got Blue Cross and Blue Shield, so he can check into the hospital of his choice....or insist on a ground floor room at Bethseda

you know he may not be a bad choice, since he was on James Bakers panel trying to figure out the mess Buish created err i mean Cheney. he came to the same conclusion that Gayle had 2 years ago change the course.

"Resigned" hell....that's a right-wing euphemism for they booted his inept a$$ out of office. Maybe he can get Michael Brown's old job of judging horse shows (seems there's a pun in here about a horse's rear end, but)
They needed another "fall guy"; another Ollie North.
Now they will slowly shift the blame for the huge mistakes in this war, and lay all the blame on Rummy.....trying to prop up Bush's image.
What's overlooked in the whole charade....is GWB's poor choices for many of his appointments, ...and his even worse choices of friends.
So you surround yourself with these terribly flawed individuals....does that make you look good, by comparison?
Or expose you as the bungler that you are? Maybe the total incompetence just hides what's really going on?
