    Heck of a job, Rummy.

    You beat me to it. Just saw it on CNN.

    What's so amazing is he waited until after the election. Guess they thought they'd run along as normal if the Repubs stayed in power. Crazy stuff.

    ironic thing is if he had dumped Rummy before the election, maybe like six months ago, this electoral bloodbath might not have happened.

    No, like the war in Iraq

    they didn't plan on losing the election. But their only plan seems to be, Rummy to step down, W in a gesture of Bipartisanship will offer Traiitor Joe the position and the Con govenor will replace Joe with a Con Senator.

    Taking over for Rumsfeld is going to be a thankless job, and I can't see Joe taking it, having won a hard fought battle to stay Senator. It seems like a no-brainer. He can stay Senator for six more years, or he can throw that away and take a crap job for two years.

    Agree...cleaning up after Rummy is gonna be a thankless task. He pretty much burned all his bridges in the Pentagon.

    I just worry about the Cons coming collecting on 'all their help"

    If I was Joe, I'd tuck my tail between my legs and get back with the DNC a learned man.
    I'd say "Thanx for all your help SUCKERS" to the RNC and redeclare himself a Dem a day or 2 after his sworn in.

    That was me. My voice carried across the US to fill in the sound bite.

    I'm glad to see the old Bush Sr CIA head, Gates, take over. Guy has serious credibility. I wonder if Sr has given little Jr a reprimand?

    Flip-Flop is so yesterday. It's more accurate to say that Bush cut-and-ran from his stay the course policy on Rumsfeld.

    Chris Matthews saying that Bush over-ruled Cheney, who wanted to keep Rummy.

    and Gates is part of his father's old team, along with Baker and Scowcroft.


    Looks like Boy George is running true to form. whenever he runs something into the ground, he goes running to Daddy and Daddy's powerful friends to come in and bail him out.

    I guess I should have taken 2 seconds to search the forum before starting my own thread on the subject...but regardless:

    They certainly are dumping stay the course...whats next? Sufficent body armor? Being greeted as liberators? My head is swirling...so confused.....

    What's sad is Rummy didn't resign because of his poor performance, he resigned over politics. The Dems were/are gonna make his life miserable. At least now his time will be freed up to testify before Congress as to his utter failures... Just cause he resigned it doesn't absolve him of war crimes.

    It's ironic. If Bush let Rummy go sooner, it would have made yesterday's results somewhat unlikely. America wants accountability. When Bush told everyone to go stuff it, that he was gonna "stay the course" and "full speed ahead with Iraq," regardless of dissenting opinions he caused the bloodbath last night. And of course he blamed Rove today... It's never his fault... Bush is just a dick!

    I'm confused guys...what does Rummy resigning have to do with the Dems winning?

    Isn't it obvious he was going to resign anyways, but they never change war plans right before an election. They would blow the only advantage they have, the perception of being stronger on defense.

    Just my 2 cents...

    It doesn't seem possible to you that W see's the Dem. hordes on the horizon coming for them subpoenas in hand? That he is trying to do his best to save face and distance himself? Instead of having someone on the stand who is actively messing up in Iraq, he now can point out that he has "taken steps towards a new direction in Iraq." Do you see how that might make sense?

    I certainly don't have a problem with that. From initial reaction, I'm stoked that Gates was called in. Gates, a member of the Iraq Study Group, served 26yrs in the CIA/NSA...career non-partisan guy. I trust someone with that much professional experience in an area that relates to the #1 issue for Americans, while also knowing he's been associated with traditional non-ideological Republicans from the Bush Sr era. From Bush's speech, it seems they're not going to part ways from the neo-con garbage. Cheney just got over-ruled for the Gates ruling. Neo-conservatives have been given the sign: time for dumping. I can deal with the old Republican foreign policy strategy... it offers a strategic retreat from radical right.

    As Russert just said, this is going to be a time of "hard-headed pragmatism" with Baker and Gates leading the way to getting Iraq worked out.

    As an independent, I'm really pumped. Fingers crossed that Pelosi brings a "moderate" Democrat influence and is tough on Bush wrt to Iraq.

    In a very good mood right now.
