    A once-great American political party has become a pesthole for socialist radicalism. The whining of its principals, people without princples, is now incessant. Take the so-called "outing" of a CIA employee, for example ...

    Rove Won't Be Charged in CIA Leak Case
    Jun 13 9:54 AM US/Eastern

    By JOHN SOLOMON Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON -- Top White House aide Karl Rove has been told by prosecutors he won't be charged with any crimes in the investigation into the leak of a CIA officer's identity, his lawyer said Tuesday, lifting a heavy burden from one of President Bush's most trusted advisers. Attorney Robert Luskin said that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald informed him of the decision on Monday, ending months of speculation about the fate of Rove, the architect of Bush's 2004 re-election now focused on stopping Democrats from capturing the House or Senate in this November's elections.
    Fitzgerald has already secured a criminal indictment against Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

    The above opening to an Associated Press story caused weeping and wailing in the Democratic Party. They didn't get Rove. The piece went on to say that the Special Prosecutor has gotten a judge to issue a criminal indictment for "Scooter" Libby, former advisor to V.P. Dick Cheney, in this case. The truth is the agent in question was a paper shuffler at the CIA in Virginia, and hadn't been under cover for more than five years. The law relating to this "crime" further requires intent of a clear nature on the perpetrator's part. None of these or other sections of the law were violated by Libby, who like Karl Rove is only guilty of participating in the election of George Bush as president. This, according to the American Left, is a felonious activity in that like the Republican takeover of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, diminished their power, which is theirs by tradition and birth.

    DNC CHAIRMAN DEAN: ROVE HAS REAL SIN
    Tue Jun 13 2006 08:29:32 ET

    DNC Chair Howard Dean on NBC's 'TODAY': 'If Karl Rove had been indicted
    it would have been for perjury. That does not excuse his real sin which
    is leaking the name of an intelligence operative during the time of war.
    He doesn't belong in the White House. If the President valued America
    more than he valued his connection to Karl Rove, then Karl Rove would
    have been fired a long time ago. So I think this is probably good news
    for the White House, but its not very good news for America'...

    Ditto the comments made earlier, here. Neither Rove nor Libby can reveal (uncover for public viewing) a name which the agent and her husband revealed, themselves. (In one instance, as a result of their self-promoting appearance in a major East Coast magazine.) Of greater importance is the regulatory abrogation by said "agent" by recommendation of her husband for an information gathering mission to Africa. A trip to ask about Saddam Hussein's interest in yellowcake (uranium) ore purchases.

    CIA agents are not allowed to promote relatives for such things.

    Rove and Libby did not "out" Valerie Plame, Valerie Plame and her husband did, while at the same time violating agency policy. To top it all off, the husband did a crummy job of gathering intelligence, did not file a written report for the administration on his return but instead wrote a political piece about the whole affair (loaded with bias and inaccuracies) for a major liberal daily newspaper.

    So, you ask yourself, what the Hell is all this fuss about?

    Politics, lads and lassies. The Democrat Party, no longer the party of Truman and JFK, has been taken over by radical leftists, and may be viewed as nothing more than a pack of liars who are enemies of America.

    This fall, I think, all their rhetoric, all their lies, contrary to the pronouncements of their propaganda arm, the mainstream media, will come home to haunt them. All the claims of impending victory for them, including a retaking of the House, the Senate or both, may turn out to be so much whistling in the wind.

    I think Nixon's "silent majority" isn't being polled by the major league (read: liberal) journalists. I further think that in spite of this gigantic voting segment's dissatisfaction with a number of non-conservative Bush policies, this group is not made up of people who bang themselves in the head with hammers because they are too stupid to realize where the pain is coming from.

    What we will see in the coming election is evidence of the further disintegration of the Democrats. This condition may even seep down to the state level, which here in Oregon would lead to the defeat of the flaming leftist incumbent, governor Ted Kulongoski, by the moderate-to-mildly-conservative-on-some-issues Republican, Ron Saxton.

    Such is my reading of the situation. We shall know soon enough.
