Utah's Cannon defends Rove's absence
Some of you people are so brainwashed it's unbelievable.1)
9/11 was done by the government.2) Attacking Iran will provoke world
war.3) Karl Rove is a CRIMINAL4) The Democrats are CRIMINAL5)
The Republicans are CRIMINAL
Most people think that with a democrat takeover in 2008 the country will be
better overnight. The people in the United States are the only ones that could
make this better. If the democrats did not want war we would not be there. If
democrats wanted to end it it would be over now. Basicly we have two partys that
do not care about the country or its people. They both lie, cheat, and steal.
Dont know who the worst liers are though. Republicans lies try to scare you,
while democrats lies make you think they realy care.
"All Animals are Equal, But SOME Animals are More Equal than Others". And so,
apparently, is Karl Rove.
Karl, you are not God, nor do I think you know the Almighty well at all. You
testify because it is the law here in the us of a. If you have nothing to hide,
you gladly testify.Don't hide behind the skirts of the president.
Wait, though, please do. You are guaranteeing a change of political
parties in the white house in November and January. Bless you my child. God
This sums it up folks, beit your RED, BLUE or GREEN, makes no difference at all
- "People are always confusing choice with freedom of choice. Agency with Free
Agency. We were not given free agnecy but agency to make choices. But we are not
free to determine the the results or consequences of the those choices." So be
There are not enough pejorative adjectives in the English language to describe
the hypocrisy of the posters who point out all the evils of the Bush
Administration and completely ignore the Democrat evil doers who exist and have
existed ad nauseam. I'll name a few more notorious ones who have escaped with a
slap on the wrist or have not been brought to justice at all: Sandy Berger,
William Jefferson Clinton, Chris Dodd (the self-righteous one who just didn't
know he was receiving favorable treatment), Jefferson of Louisiana (you know,
the one who hid his graft money in the deep freeze), Ted Kennedy of "C" fame,
former Governor Spitzer of New York and even his successor, etc. etc. Come on,
Dems, the skeletons in your closet are legion. And now, we have an
obstructionist Democrat Congress that has tried so hard to unite the country but
those darned old Republicans just won't roll over and play dead, although some
of them appear to be at room temperature.
There is this simple rule: do not wrong, tell the truth. if you have done
wrong, lie or don't show up.Raise your hand, swear to tell the
truth, tell it, and walk away and sleep well.IF and it is a big IF
you have lied, then well gosh don't go!!!
Karl is a brillant man who help GWB elected a second term in the White House.
The democrats are still foaming at the mouth. The democratic congress is
clutching at every straw to bring Bush down via Rove. They still have a vengance
because Bill Clinton was impeached. They should be doing the work of the
nation's business and solving the serious problems that face us. It's no wonder
their apporval rating is 9%. Don't they get the message???
Does anyone else see the irony in Congress holding an investigation into whether
the Justice Dept. held investigations for political reasons? Especially since
Rove offers to answer their questions in a different format (without TV cameras,
etc.)? Whatever Rove did, it's done and over. It's amazing so many
are completely overlooking the blatant hypocrisy of those supposedly still on
the job . Can we end the gotcha game and please get something done?
Wake Up, Congress has always had the right to investigate the administration and
to prosecute members of the government. The reason you may be confused about
this is that there wasn't enough room in the GOP Constitution Coloring Book to
include that.I'm amazed that Republicans and other conservatives can
scream bloody murder about "truth" and "justice" when somebody else might be
doing wrong, but will bury their heads in the sand when one of their own is
found out.But wait, we have GOP revisionist history! Reagan
revolutionized economics by giving tax breaks to the wealthy, Helms was a civil
rights advocate by saying that black shouldn't vote. In a few years, Limbaugh
will have revolutionized health care by abusing pain medication, Coulter will
have redefined the family by refusing benefits to war widows. If you can't have
real heroes, manufacture some. After all, you wouldn't want to fund decent
health care for the real heroes, the veterans you've sacrificed on an oil
derrick in the Middle East.So, which whited sepulcher will Rove
occupy when all is said and done?
These people who are saying that Karl Rove is evil - come on. Why are you
looking the other way when the democrats are playing pure politics?? How is
Rush Limbaugh responsible for spewing hatred, but not people like Bill Maher or
Keith Olbermann?Utahns love to point the finger and can't look at
two sides of an issue. In this state, there has to be a black and white.Rove is a brilliant political strategist. Why is he being grilled by
people on this board? People are just made when they're played like a puppet -
but I don't hear many calling David Axelrod (Obama's strategist) evil, even
though he is playing the public like a toy. My point is: there are
two sides to every argument, and if you hate the political strategists, you have
to blame the public that fell into their strategy . . .
It is a witch hunt- Karl is an evil witch who has participated in swindling the
American people and the deaths of 10's of thousands world-wide. (You can see
the comments of some of those less intelligent Americans who have yet to realize
this.) Rove deserves to be brought to trial before a jury of his peers and held
accountable for what he has done- which is far worse than adultery. Comparing
him to Clinton is just stupid- wake up willie and the Rock!
the pure hate engendered by liberals is truely frightening. I fear for the
future if all those "ignorant" americans elect another republican. You think al
queda is dangerous? Just wait.
Bla, bla and more bla, like you who write all these responses have any
significance. Get use to it, you are no longer significant, and your vote don't
actually count. The government runs the country and the government runs you.
It all got changed back when F.D. Roosevelt was elected president, and ever
since then your rights have slowly vanished until you no longer actually have
much of a voice in anything. Now just be good little subjects and do what the
government directs you to do.
Karl is a great American and public servant and the "left winger's" are still
sore that Bush won and will never get over it. Get a grip you wimps. As long as
the Democratic congress keeps fixating on the past they will not take of the
present as evidenced by this aweful do nothing democratic congress.
I just had to react to GAW's comment....What are you smoking? Fist, we have a
whole slew of "draft dodgers" in the White house now. George W went AWOL from
the National Guard (a group he sent into combat), Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove and
others avoided service, in a conflict they fully supported, through deferments.
What hypocrisy! Clinton avoided the draft through school deferments but he did
not support the war. Bush and company ignored the threats before 9/11, have
made al qaeda stronger, the US weaker and destroyed our economy and our
military. Maybe if Bush or Cheney had served, they would not have been so quick
to send men and women to their deaths based on lies and fraud. I'll take a lefty
It's an extremely serious allegation. If Rove was innocent, he'd show up. Are
these absurd criminals EVER going to be held accountable for ANYTHING?
Where in the Constitution is Congress given anything other than legislative
authority? Refresh my memory, but aren't there 3 branches of our government:
Judicial, Legislative, and Executive? And isn't Congress the Legislative
branch, not the JUDICIAL?
Karl Rove is the epitome of corruption within the confines of that awful group
that calls itself Conservative.He and his nasty conservative ilk are what
makes normal America yearn for the days when America meant looking out for each
other and taking care of each other.Start rounding 'em all up and thin the
herd that way.
KW is delusional. Clinton fired some lawyers in the Justice Department when he
entered the White House. He never had a mass firing during his presidency equal
to the Bush White House.Goats doesn't understand the premise that
you must investigate to see if crimes were committed. If it is a
witch hunt that facts will prove it. Conservatives are in a damage control mode.
There ship is sinking and they believe by rearranging the deck chairs no one
will notice the ship is listing.
This political liar should be held in comtempt of the law just like they are
wrote. I'm totally disgusted with everyone in this present administrtion. We
have been lied to, stolen from, and decieved long enough. Out with EVERY
incumbent in Washington is the only thing to do. Forget this stupid seniority
crap, and start removing all of them. If replacements don't live up to their
citizens requests out them in 4 years until they all get the message. These
thieves need to get what they deserve. As for Rove, I just wish he had no Utah
ties--What an embarrasment. Black ball him and let him hide in the closet.
People like him are sickening. History will tell all about this man and his
buddies. There is only ONE man I detest more than Rove and that is our next door
neighbor Cheney. i don,t even want to start about this lying jerk, the
orchestrator of all of this deciet.
All the Republicans have to do for this to be a "united" country is to acquiesce
(cave in) to every Democrat whim. The Dems hate Karl Rove because he has defied
and thwarted the deceitful Democrat mantra--Let's just get along. With Dems,
it's their way or the highway. I've been disgusted with Republicans that they
have more times than not just rolled over and permitted it. Stand your ground,
Karl, the Dems are on another witch hunt. Their talking points regarding your
defying the subpoena have already been delivered to Dem minions and they are in
full battle cry and pursuit. History will vindicate the Bush administraton and
prove the 9%-approved Democrat Congress the obstructionits to any progress that
might have been made to "unite" the nation. Go, Karl! Stand your ground. The
hounds are at your heels.
is it possible that you live under a rock??Wow - it's hard to
imagine someone being so misguided but I think you take the prize.I
guess you can overlook your own party's piece of what you call "immoral
swampland" - who needs the bill of rights anyway and torture isn't a big deal at
all.The republicans went after Clinton for having an affair - kind
of ironic that some of those republicans were having affairs as well at the same
time.Please try and do something about your ignorance - I think you
even give your party a bad name.
I never takes very long for neocons to get around to something about Bill
Clinton on each subject - does it?
Amazing how you libs check your thinking caps at the door and take what you read
in the paper as gospel. Why do you not question the motives of this committee in
the first place? You think they're pure as the driven snow, that's why, and
that Rove MUST be guilty. If I were in Rove's shoes and smelled a
witch hunt--which he obviously does--I would be looking for any legal angles to
avoid playing into their hands, which is exactly what he's doing.Truth is, I don't know all the facts, and neither do you. I thought we
believed in innocent until proven guilty in this country? You all act so much
like judge and jury, even BEFORE any trial or questioning has even taken place,
let alone any sort of indictment or conviction.And then you turn
around and call conservatives the hate-mongers? Please look in the mirror.And those of you who condemn Limbaugh and the rest of conservative
radio, you would do well to actually LISTEN to it and thinking critically and
intelligently about what is said, instead of buying hook, line, and sinker
what's fed to you by the media and other liberal apologists.
Right, don't people know only democrats have the right to fire lawyers? That
fact was repeated ad naseum when Clinton fired all of them because a few were
investigating crimes he might have been involved with.
As soon as anyone gets elected they forget that they represent the voter and
immediately begin representing their own political party or the special
interests that financed their rise to power.Power! This is the
reason for all the investigations. Dems attempt to smear Repubs. Repubs don't
dare return the favor as the press will report it as a "Republican Witch Hunt";
hence, Sandy Burger gets off with a slap on the wrist. When Dems do it, the
press never calls it what it is; a witch hunt.Democrats have staked
out "immoral swampland" (baby killing, gay rights, promote porn under the guise
of the 1st amendment, steeling from Republicans and buying votes with the money
from the poor) and some how turns it into the moral high ground.They
must call good evil because the Democrats are evil.
God Bless our great nation, and our fine honest Republican's that's doing such a
fine job in Washington, D. C. for us all. BIG DEAL, Karl Rove, defying a
subpoena, failed to appear before a U.S. House panel investigating whether the
Justice Department prosecuted people for political reasons, he needs to TELL
Linda Sanchez, a California Democrat, that "denial is "NOT" some river in
Egypt", and Rove has executive privilege and don't have to answer to any
liberal, no matter what Republican Representative Chris Cannon of Utah said and
called today's hearing a partisan stunt. If this would of been
Obamaism or even Bill Clinton, you would of heard that "denial is "NOT" some
river in Egypt" and they did nothing wrong.
Notice how the conservative propaganda machine. devoid of any oblication to
fairness, has used the public's air waves to promote the idea the conservative
have no accountability, that asking question by elected representatives about
abuse of power is a witch hunt and not to read only access any other sources but
Rush and Fox because all others are evil?Once, books were burned.
Today, you can achieve the same goal by telling your flock the books are writen
by evil conservatives who hate Bush.Should we love and embrace a
president who has shown his complete contempt for a nation many of us served in
the military to protect?
Re: GAWHAHAHAHA!!! You're joking right? This country is so screwed
up it doesn't matter who you put in office. Red or Blue, they are all crooks.
No one in Washington cares about the people. They only care about
themselves and getting re-elected.
I wonder if all those calling for Rove's head for not appearing are the same
people who ten years ago said Slick Willey should not have to testify before
congress? What goes around comes around, folks.I also find it
interesting that Linda Sanchez would head the commercial and administrative law
subcommittee, when she has defaulted on 3 or 4 mortgages as she has hopped from
place to place in her CA political carreer. Apparently the law or contracts she
enters into personally are of no consequence to her.Her finding that
Rove's executive privilege
Thanks Willie 11:15 -I needed the laugh.
My beef with Karl Rove was that he was the architect of Big Tent GOP pandering.
He and GWB acted like they were still campaigning in Texas. They bought the
Latino vote with the promise of amnesty and a new guest worker program.And
Bush stopped enforcing immigration laws figuring someday it would all be moot
anyway.Then there is government spending, another effort to buy votes
rather than lead the country.As for DOJ hirings and firings, it is and
always was the prerogative of the party in power.The same situation exists
in Utah State Government but I don't hear anyone outraged about that.The
only thing Rove or Gonzalez needed to say was, "These appointees serve at the
will and pleasure of the White House." But it's too late for that now. The
libs have picked up the scent of blood.
if i remember right,9/11 happened on the bush watchafter being
warned in a daily presidential briefthat august that it was about to
Karl Rove is the typical Republican, like Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh, Tom DeLay.
Opportunists who look for any advantage to benefit financially or politically
while never actually serving the country that they claim to love so much. These
men would succeed in any type of government, especially repressive
dictatorships, and could care less about the United States or what it supposedly
Rove will get what is coming to him.We the people need to take this
country back.Rove, Limbaugh (and his intolerant rants that fuel hate in
this country) and of Cheney/Bush need to realize that we are not going to sit
back and watch out country get destroyed.This country is great, and
we deserve better then these heartless suites running it into the ground.
He is in contempt of congress and should be thrown in jail.
Rove made the right decision. The Dems continue to shown no leadership and all
they do is "hunt for witches, spooks and goblins." Heaven help us if we as a
nation ever put another Dem. in the White House! You think 9-11 was bad, I truly
fear for us all if another draft-dodger, or liberal leftie is given leadership.
Cut and run folks, meerly bring the spooks and goblins to the frront door.
Mr. Rove is a true American patriot. Thank you for standing up for America, Mr.
How does he look at the man in the mirror every morning? I pray for you, Mr.
Rove, but my heart has hardened to the debt you've put upon the next generations
May God have mercy on my soul, but I would love to see Karl Rove get what he
deserves.This man, brilliant as he no doubt is, was the architect of the
mess of an administration we have in power today.He (along with ilk like
Limbaugh and Coulter) is responsible for total division of this country at a
time when we should be united. His demonization of the word Liberal is legendary
and parroted many times during the course of the day on every topic of this
It's too bad we can't do to Karl what we did to Chris.Long live the
Grand Oil Party!
"Republican Representative Chris Cannon of Utah called today's hearing 'a
partisan stunt'"Ironic position to take. Both Chris Cannon and Karl
Rove's careers can be summed up as partisan stunts.
Right, Chris Canon if this was a member of the Democratic Party there would be
fire on your heels after the guy. Face it, Karl Rove is a bad dude who would
lie, cheat or steal to promote his party. The truth will out in coming years
about just how evil this administration has been. Of course, we are getting rid
of Canon only to get someone like Jason.
Just another example of the Bush Co's contempt of law and, of course, the
Democrats are absolutely spineless and will continue to roll over and do
absolutely nothing.It's like a race between Bush/Congress and al qaeda to
see who can destroy America faster and I think Bush/Congress are winning by a
