We usually do not post Ripublican news stories – not yet. This is our first Ripublican article ever. Only after the Democratic Party nominee is officially chosen will we begin to examine the Ripublican offering. We wait with anticipation for the day when we can compare the Democratic Party nominee and her excellent record with the Ripublican candidate and his flawed record and history.
That said there are two Ripublican related news items we thought are worthy of note today.
Item 1: After a sixth place finish in Saturday’s Iowa straw poll, Tommy Thompson, the four-term governor of Wisconsin and former secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, said he was ending his presidential bid.
Tommy Thompson quitting the race means that Iowa has taken down at least 1 candidate. We don’t know if after the new primary/caucus schedule is announced Iowa will still command this type of clout. For the time being: Iowa 1. Will Iowa get to knock out the next Thompson (Fred)?
Item 2: Karl Rove, a political adviser to President George W. Bush and a lightning rod for anger among Democrats, will leave the White House at the end of this month, Rove told the Wall Street Journal.
“I just think it’s time,” Rove said in an interview with the newspaper published on Monday.
“There’s always something that can keep you here, and as much as I’d like to be here, I’ve got to do this for the sake of my family.
We were never impressed with Karl Rove and never understood the fear Democrats had for the plump “Bush Brain”. Rove’s laughable theories about realignment, McKinley, and Bush as a transformational figure always struck us as deluded. Why the news media ever gave him credit especially after the 2000 election mess he mastermined is a mystery. But this is good news. It is further proof of the unraveling Bush occupancy of the White House.
We do love the “for the sake of my family” excuse. Ripublicans always use the “family” excuse. Some day soon we will get the real reason Rove was pushed out or was convinced to leave.
For the first time ever, good news from the Bush occupied White House.
We always knew that to get Karl Rove out – It Takes A Family.
