Time for a Reality Check
When will The Shrub realize that his loyalties are, at the very least, misguided. Has his pig-headed-ness totally blinded him to reality or is he really that stupid when it comes to the U.S. Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales?? The prez and his vice prez let Scooter Libby be hung out to dry, so I'm thinking loyalty to Gonzales the man isn't part of this scenario. Political expediency is the game they're playing and it may well backfire on the very party they're trying to promote. Blindly and blithely following one failed policy after another diminishes their credibility around the world and reflects badly on the American People. Owning up to one's failures and attempting to correct them are signs of maturity and intelligence. I'm afraid those qualities are lacking at the White House. Members of Congress are as disillusioned as most of the general populace. They're torn between party loyalties and common sense. No one wins in this stalemate. The ball is in the president's court and he won't even come to the game.
