Send Karl Rove to Jail

Rove and the White House are claiming "executive privilege" but this investigation has nothing to do with Rove's role as an adviser to the White House, but instead seeks information and testimony on Rove's involvement at the Justice Department in the investigation of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.

Lee, as you know I wrote about this case in February, when Siegelman was in jail and the `60 Minutes broadcast was blacked out in Alabama.

It is hard to believe that such a travesty of justice(Siegelman being thrown in jail for months) happened even in Amerika. It just as hard to believe that Karl Rove is given a modicum of respect, by anyone in the political establishment, whatever their political leanings.

The Dem's nominee, whoever it will be, has a great opportunity (the sooner the better for Siegelman) to raise the nation's public's awareness of the GOP 'poster boy' and this case. It will be very interesting to see how much McCain a past victim of Rove, tries to defend the traditional establishment of the GOP, which will no doubt rally around their boy 'genuis', Karl Rove.


The last I heard Senator McCain was a member of Congress and he was still taking political advice from this contemptible low life. It is time for Obama to put McCain on the spot, on whether he associates or disassocites himself from whom the Presidentnot without reason nicknamed `turd blossom`.

Hopefully Obama will bring this up on one of the nationally televised debates. I understand 3 have been scheduled.

Steve Crickmore:

Lee, I don't know if Obama can afford to wait to see if the penny drops during a debate. Anyway, here is what McCain said about Rove in February, when these charges were first being bruited or rumored.

MCCAIN: I've always respected Karl Rove as one of the smart great political minds I think in American politics. I've always respected him. We never had any ill will after the initial South Carolina thing. After we had the meeting with President Bush we moved on. I've seen Karl Rove many times when I've been over at the White House. We've always had pleasant conversations.

QUESTION: His tactics don't, you don't disapprove of them? They don't make you nervous?

MCCAIN: It's not so much whether I approve of his tactics or not. It's that he has a very good, great political mind. Any information or advice and council he can give us, I'd be glad to have. I don't think anybody denies his talents. So I'd be glad to get any advice and council. We would obviously decide whether to accept it or not.

Surely if Obama is serious about `change we can believe in` Rove is in deep, deep trouble..In Alabama as eleswhere it Republican attorneys as well as Democrats who have become so disgusted at Rove.(power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely)

If Obama is smart he will trap McCain at defending Rove partly because McCain now firmly at best an ex-maverick will predictably ingratiate himself with the GOP as the way politics has always been done in this country, and then Obama can nail McCain as well as Rove, for the evidence is so overwhelming that a blatant miscarriage/and railroading of justice in Alabama including unfounded sexual smears were directed by the `boy genuius` directly from Bush`s White House.

But the next move may be Pelosi`s

irongrampa:

One would think that addressing the energy concerns of this country would be slightly more relevant than chasing Mr. Rove.

Herman:

The Karl-Rove-in-Contempt Scandal is just soooooooooo yesterday! You really do need to keep up-to-date on your Republican scandals, Mr. Ward. We've now moved on to Ted "Tubes" Stevens being indicted by the Feds on seven counts.

Gerald M. Millner:

This should go further than Rove. In my opinion, Bush, Cheney, Rice, and Rumsfeld should all be in jail, along with others. The Bush administration is nothing but a model of incompetence and a great stain on the world standing of our great republic. Forget about the little stuff, and go for the real zealots!

We're sooooo not yesterday that we're tomorrow, baby....

We've covered Stevens fall from grace over the last year or so, including his indictment.

I wonder if the Republicans in the White House are actually smart enough to use the drilling for oil issue to distract the country away from the mounting call for their criminal and civil prosecution?

Hmmm, no - they're not that smart...
