Harry Reid’s feelings must have really gotten hurt. Could he be any more of a baby? I don’t feel I need an apology Harry. Bush didn’t do anything to me or anyone else, why should he apologize for the actions of others? True, he’s got control over who’s in what positions, but he has no control over their individual actions once they’re there.
An apology is fine. Should Bush apologize, I won’t hold it against him. Harry Reid thinks of Bush as a a god-like figure, otherwise he wouldn’t want an apology from Bush for actions of those under him.
Reid said Bush should pledge not to pardon I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Cheney’s chief of staff who was indicted Friday on five charges relating to statements he made to the FBI and a grand jury investigating the leak of the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame.
He took aim at Rove, whose actions were probed by Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald. Rove is reportedly still under investigation.
“I think Karl Rove should step down,” Reid said about the White House deputy chief of staff. “Here is a man who the president said if he was involved, if anyone in the administration was involved, out they would go. Anybody who is involved in this, they’re gone.”
What a damn idiot. It’s a witch-hunt. Only the witch is specifically Karl Rove. Dems obviously aren’t satisfied with Libby being indicted, they don’t even acknowledge that Libby was the one that was indicted, not Rove. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they’re perfectly happy Libby got indicted, it’s just that he wasn’t their most prized target.
