So who will run the world now?

August 14th, 2007 at 7:22 am by David Farrar

Karl Rove has announced that he will resign his White House post at the end of August.

So who will run the world now? Cheney can only do so much by himself :-)

In some way no surprise Rove is going.  His speciality is elections and this frees him up for various 2008 campaigns.

    In other news today, Hillary Clinton received an unhelpful and mysterious endorsement from the Communist League of Negro Women, and Barack Obama’s next campaign fundraiser was booked in next to a brothel.

    Cheney and Rove have been in conflict over Plame and Scooter Libby for some time. So Rove is leaving to spend more time with his family? Yeh right. And Dave, I predict history will judge all the senior figures in this Administration, very harshly indeed. So maybe at some point there will be some accountability. I just can’t believe anyone still supports them.

    DPF: If his specialty is elections then he had a bad patch in the last round :)

    He may just have passed his prime, and quit while your ahead.

    The Chinese

    America has just visited them to tell them to raise their yuan against the US and they politely told them to shove it. After the Olympics watch who rules the world when they pull the strings attached to the debt the US owes them.

    This is the century of China

    He he. Hope Dubya didn’t puke into the the lap of the Chinese Premier like his father did into the Japanese Prime Minister when he took a trade delegation their complaining of Japan’s “unfair” trading practices.

    Hmm, I wonder why Chinese products have been receiving such bad press lately from the American MSM. Oh sure, they’ve just discovered that Chinese goods are unsafe, recently. lol

    Maybe Fred Thompson (new saviour of western civilisation) has been waiting for Karl Rove before he officially kicks off his run.

    Excuse me? Your team hasn’t won an election this century, and since the American’s are experts at losing with ill-grace what else can you take to the table?

    “Karl Rove, the architect of so much that has gone so wrong with the Bush administration, announced yesterday that he is leaving the White House to spend more time with his family. What he didn’t say is that by getting out of town he is also hoping to avoid spending any time at all with Congressional investigators.

    Congress should not oblige.

    The American public needs to understand the full story of how this White House — with Mr. Rove pulling many of the strings — has spent the last six and a half years improperly and dangerously politicizing the federal government. Mr. Rove is already defying one Congressional subpoena to testify about the United States attorneys scandal. He should be made to respond to that one, and should also be subpoenaed to explain his role in several other cases of crass politicization. …

    Mr. Rove can now contemplate that legacy from his home in Texas. But he should not get too settled in. Congress needs to use all its power to bring Mr. Rove back to Washington to testify — in public and under oath — about how he used his office to put politics above the interests of the American people.”

    Exactly – he used his office to put politics ABOVE THE INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Add to that list Cheney, Bush, Gonzales, Rumsfeld, Rice, Card et al. And the list of legislation that falls into this category is so long, so bad and so freakin obvious that’s it’s hard to understand why anyone at all still supports the worst US Administration in history.

    P.S. Will this make it easier for Cheney to start a war with Iran?

    TomS , DPF was ‘involved’ in the Canadian elections which the Conservatives won.

    My guess he wont be trying the Aussie one, but the US its more an individual candidate thing so you can pick the person you like rather than the party

    I have noticed an increase in these types of warnings. Strangely I don’t know if many people are watching, to busy living their lives thinking that the world will never change and everything runs in straight lines.

    I’m not joking when I say that china will rule the US and russia has western europe on a string with it’s gas supply.
