I made Junior my penpal.

Is this Deja vu all over again?

It seems like the country has been here before.
In 1974 President Nixon was faced with a crisis he could not hide from.

Nixon Resigns

He had claimed executive privilege to avoid turning over his secret White House tapes to the Watergate special prosecutor, but the Supreme Court ruled that he could not hide the tapes which revealed that he had obstructed the Watergate investigation.

Two days before Nixon resigned he was visited by three congressmen, Republican Minority leader of the House of Representatives, John J. Rhodes (Az.), Senate Minority Leader Hugh D. Scott Jr. (Pa.) and Sen. Barry M. Goldwater (Az.). They told him that he had lost Republican support. The House would vote to impeach him, and the Senate was sure to convict him.

Although it is fun to compare you to one of the sleaziest presidents of our time, it is not a fair comparison. You are a hell of a lot sleazier than Nixon ever was.

When Nixon was president the country had Gerald Ford, a vice-president who was known for his integrity and fairness. Although not everyone felt comfortable with Gerald Ford in our nation's highest office; if you compare him to Dick Cheney, Ford looked like a saint.

Now if you want to talk sleazy, Cheney is so detestable he makes you look like a boy scout.

Ironically Cheney and Rummy learned about manipulating a president when President Ford brought them into his cabinet. They convinced Ford to fire Defense Secretary James Schlesinger, and remove Vice-president Nelson Rockefeller. Ford also asked Henry Kissinger to step down as national security adviser based on Cheney and Rummy's input. Rumsfeld took over Schlessinger’s job as secretary of defense, and Cheney became Ford’s chief of staff . They also persuaded Ford to trash the Salt II treaty on nuclear-arms control and began a life long affair with the extreme right.

Thanks to the Cheney-Rumsfield team, Ford lost the presidency to Jimmy Carter by two million votes. They didn’t have Rove and his dirty tricks back then.

Long after he left office President Ford lamented acting on Cheney and Rumsfield''s suggestions. He said removing Schlesinger, Rockefeller, and Kissenger was the biggest political mistake of his life.

And then, you came around and you made the fateful mistake of selecting Rummy and Cheney for your cabinet too. This time they used their positions of power to infiltrate and manipulate government agencies. But, they were now joined by Karl Rove and together they made an awesome trio of terror. But, they couldn't have done it without a chump like you; a burned out ex-alcoholic-good time charlie with no clue and no curiosity. You were the perfect sap.

Did they convince you that you could be better than your father in the history books? Did they tell you that your daddy failed as president because he didn’t take Saddam out and that he didn’t secure Iraq’s oil?

Cheney and his neo-conservative had plans to keep the Republicans in power for decades to and to build an imperial empire, but much of it hinged on securing Iraq’s oil fields. Saddam had to go, and America had to establish a colony in Iraq over one of largest oil reserves in the world.

You planned on establishing permanent bases in Iraq from the beginning to protect your new oil fields.

Politicizing every major agency became the Rove rule, but unfortunately you pushed too many carreer government people out, and you put way too many incompetent Bush-lovers, too many "Brownies in their place." Their screw-ups are bearing constant fruit for Democrats as the presidential election season begins. These Bush-lackeys have become Mr. Turd Blossom's "turd blossoms."

It is ironic that the United States of America, a capitalist government would adopt a Stalinist approach to staffing your administration with politcal hacks.

In the old Soviet Union, Stalin assigned political officers called "zampolit" into every company of soldiers and into every government organization, just to make sure everyone was loyal to his policies.

But, Rove doesn't care where he gets his tactics as long as it keeps Republicans in power.

The plan took a major hit after the Democrats won the House and the Senate during this last election cycle. Republican criminality and scandals accumulated before the 2006 elections and hung around the GOP's neck like an albatross.

The scandals have not stopped, and with Democrats new power to investigate, they have uncovered a new scandal almost every week. How can they fail to find wrong doing, when you provided such a target-rich environment.

They are going to have to hire more lawyers to handle all the investigations they are initiating.

This is going to be a long year junior, especially when Republicans are starting to leave your tightly knit group and have apparently decided to save themselves from the impending avalanche of inquiries and more scandals. Indeed, speaking against your policies is the new "black" this season.

Matthew Dowd, Bush's Republican strategist who worked on Bush's 2000 and 2004 election campaigns just
broke ranks with other Bushies and spilled his guts publicly. “I really like him, which is probably why I’m so disappointed in things,” he said. “I think he’s become more, in my view, secluded and bubbled in,” said Dowd.

As I said earlier this seems like deja vu all over again, and just like Nixon you are alone as any president in history.

They said Nixon was talking to portraits in the White House towards the end of his presidency. I am not sure we will be able to tell when you finally lose it because you have always seemed so disconnected from reality. But, even douche bag
Robert Novak said, "Republicans in Congress do not trust their president to protect them." They will not forget how you "bushwhacked"" the Republican party when you dumped Rumsfield AFTER a number of them lost their re-election bids.

I can understand the Democrat's reluctance to impeach you; because if you are forced out of office Cheney would become president.

But by continuing with their investigations in a timely and orderly manner, they will have enough scandals perpetrated by your inept but loyal acolytes until the Republican party succumbs to a death of a thousand cuts just in time for the 2008 elections.

But just in case one of the Democrat's investigations dig up too much incriminating evidence, and if Senate Republican Minority leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky House Minority leader John Andrew Boehner and minority whip Roy Blunt grow some balls and ask for a private meeting because they can't afford to let you to continue taking the Republican party down the shitter, I have provided a link to Nixon's
resignation speech.

It was August 8, 1974 and President. Nixon had served 2,026 days as the 37th President of the United States. He had 2 1/2 years of his second term left in his term.

Hell, you have already beat that.
