Not All The News Was Good To the Left

While a lot of folks on the left are happy to see more folks in Bush's cabinet get axed, and see Karl Rove lose some of his responsibilities, not all the news was good yesterday.

It seems Ronnie Earle has lost another round in his fight to convict Tom DeLay, an appeals court rejected his request to reinstate a felony charge of violating campaign finance law. Sorry Ronnie, but that makes two levels of the court that have a hard time justifying charging someone with a crime that wasn't on the books when the action happened.

On the other end of the spectrum, Karl Rove giving up some of his duties is causing me to laugh at a lot of editorialists this morning. These are the folks who've been clamoring for a second term shake up, as most presidents have done. Two months ago they wrote it would be a sign of good faith from the president that he's listening to the masses. Now that some folks have moved on, and some reassigned, or had jobs realigned, the same stooges call it a sign of weakness.

I'm not sorry to see Scott McClellan go as Press Secretary, I've always found him to be annoying, and not very good at the job. And Rove needs less duties, it give him more time to be evil, and plot the theft of the upcoming 2006 Congressional elections. That will be the accusation in November when the Democrats don't win Congress back.

Now, anyone expecting Bush to bring on Nancy Pelosi as his cheif advisor is going to be disappointed, even in the mini shake up he's not going to go out and hire anyone that the left will find appealing. Instead he'll do like he always does, (and as every other president has), he'll find someone of a like mind, who he trusts to give decent advice.

As for the White House spokesman, Jay at Stop the ACLU has a great idea to fill that job. I'm not a big fan of the guy he's suggesting, but can see the appeal.

Yah, I don't understand the hoopla. I think both are good moves. I didn't like Scott McClellan so glad to see him go. And Karl Rove moving positions isn't really going to change much.

I also read about Delay but didn't see that in any of the headlines.

I too wonder why the papers are so saying so little about DeLay. If there had been a conviction it would have been the headline of every paper in the country.

I don't think any of us are sorry to see Scott McClellan go.

You said: "Now that some folks have moved on, and some reassigned, or had jobs realigned, the same stooges call it a sign of weakness." Yep. That's because they are "stooges." They find it to be their job to disagree with everything Bush does, even when he does what they say they want him to do.

I'm glad Bush is our president. For the most part he simply ignores them.

Scott was a terrible Press Sec. We need someone with some hootsba. We need someone who can talk like he represents the greatest nation on the planet. We need a person who can take command and talk clearly and decisively.

Tall order but necessary.

Amazing how many folks were underwhelmed with McClellan, and that he lasted so long.

The DeLay stuff didn't make the front of many papers, though I found it inside in the politics sidebars in a few.

Good news about Delay.
I guess that's why noone is reporting it.

"Amazing how many folks were underwhelmed with McClellan"

Or underwhelmed with anybody in this administration.
