Libby Will Be The Fall Guy Friday, October 28, 2005

I've thought for sometime Scooter Libby will be the one to take the hit for the administration this thing. If anything comes down it will be on Libby. Here's why. The administration simply cannot afford to do without Karl Rove. Libby will be a tremendous hit but Rove would be bigger. The investigation has been going on for two years and this has been all over the headlines. If nothing happens, the Democrats might go into armed revolt. Someone's head must roll. It won't be Bush or Cheney. Bush as the faceman and Cheney as part of the brains and the "Cabal of Evil" must remain in place. I could be totally wrong but the White House is genuinely worried as an AP story pointed out.

White House colleagues feared Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, would be indicted Friday for at least false statements but held out hope that presidential political adviser Karl Rove might escape criminal charges for the time being.

A person outside the legal profession familiar with recent developments in the case said Thursday night that Rove's team does not believe he is out of legal jeopardy yet but likely would be spared bad news Friday when the White House fears the first indictments will be issued.



What does it mean? It means things could potentially get uglier still. Even Fox News is raising questions about the GOP future because many running for office probably won't want Bush to help them campaign. It's not a good sign for the fearless leader.

I didn't imagine that Libby would be indicted before Karl Rove. But I am naive sometimes. This country is being run by a bunch of corrupt, incompetent idiots. And I said I would refrain from name-calling.
