Do you have any points to make or are you just searching for right wingnuts opinions on this subject?
Bush and his thugs covering up Libby's and Rove's and Cheney's and Bush's treasonist activities certainly shouldn't have come as a surprise to any of us. Especially since this isn't the first time they covered for a treasonist!
Bush's administration was the most corrupt of all time. Maybe some day Conyers will grow a pair and pursue charges against these mobsters. Someday... we can always hope...
Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

I THINK THE RED GOWN LOOKS THE BEST! IT NEVER HURTS TO RUB IT IN A LITTLE.The jokes write themselves!
Give us an example of Rove's treason. Thanks in advance.
And, in case you were watching the news, Rove was cleared by a special investigation. The guy that actually outted Plame--not that she was a covert agent to begin with--was Richard Armitage; who was never once questioned by investigators.
As to the OP, I guess we can see how the Libs feel when one of their own does something whacky. This makes the threats against Pelosi look like playground ****.
