When every Democrat, in a coordinated movement, attempts to have Don Rumsfeld forced out of office in election year hijinks designed solely to get to at Bush, it is idiotic to point to concerns leveled by Republicans about Rumsfeld’s performance and state- “See, this isn’t partisan.”
In fact, it takes a level of shamelessness and audacity that surprises even me, and I have a PhD. in cynicism.
While the ever-widening scope of the abuse cases at Abu Gharib is deeply upsetting to me, trying to state that this is all Rumsfeld’s fault, or a direct result of our Gitmo policy, or anything in that vein, is disgusting. All you have to do is trace Kerry’s statements to see the motivation for this putsch against Rumsfeld- watch as they started out benign, then, when the Democrats thought they had something they could use against Bush and the Pelosi’s and the Rangel’s started in with their fiery rhetoric, Kerry’s statements started to become more heated and fiery.
Could you guys try to be less transparent?

On the positive side of things, I guess I won’t be hearing about the successes of “Clinton’s Army” again any time soon.
