    So the question we ask ourselves today is: Are Bush and Cheney loyalists entrenching themselves into the federal bureaucracy in order to make it difficult for their successors to roll back their policies?

    Don't wonder, "who's sabotaging me at the CIA".

    Don't be surprised when the CIA lies for Bush.

    Bush politicized everything, including the military. Thats another law he broke. But Republicans don't care about the law.

    Just another case of the D's accusing the R's of doing what they already have always done. The federal bureaucracy belongs to the Party-of-Government. How could an infiltrator get promoted or even keep their job? It's a little like Hollywood, a few conservatives exist, but are afraid to speak up.

    They will be exposed as knaves when-ever and where-ever they reveal themselves. All an R can do in the federal bureaucracy is attempt to bring some light to self defeating liberal practices, and little more. If a conservative is uncovered there they are accused of "burrowing".

    God I hope you are right. :eusa_pray:

    Expose them and boot them out!

    Wait. They have career jobs, not jobs that are appointed. They don't have to quit. They can't be fired for no good reason.

    Sealy...this is not an untypical event when regimes change.

    Why do you think so many of our top eschlon civil servants are so uncivil?

    If you think, that is thinking for yourself, that Bush and co did anything historically exceptional that requires retroactive prosecution, US history will show that not to be true.

    As for The Prophet, if he lets this stupidity metastasize he will likely as not find himself in the box as well when his tour is over. A way will be found.

    Btw, the Bush crowd lost. Get over it.

    Yet their policies still linger. Can't get over it until we undo them. Get over us trying.
