Just "SHOVE IT" Reid...

It's been a while since I've made a post about politics and hence the name, "Austin's Political Blog," here we go. "Scooter" Libby has not been found guilty of anything at this time. Somehow the democrats are filtering this back to President Bush because they absolutely hate his guts. Over the past few months, I have held in my feelings about Bush's performance in the White House during the first year of his second term. Overall, I feel the president could do better. Am I turning against him? No. When he chose Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court I was shocked. After weeks of asking to hear her views, it finally became too much and she withdrew. Through the radio airwaves I've heard the words, "Bush," and "Failed President," constantly. HE HAS THREE MORE YEARS TO GO PEOPLE. THREE. Lay off the guy a little. Who voted for him? The citizens of the United States of America. That's right. The same people who are complaining now. As for the War in Iraq and Cindy Sheehan, I wonder how her son feels with the way she is acting. Remember, no draft is in effect and no draft will be put into effect. So how did he get over there? He joined. She can attach herself to the White House fence all she wants. She can get arrested twenty times and I still won't care. Imagine how we will look if we pull out now? The terrorists will feel as if they have won. Fighting in their homeland, keeps them off ours. As for Harry Reid asking for Bush and Cheney to apologize, that is just insane. Next thing you know he [Bush] will be apologizing for apologizing for something. I just ask that you don't do it again Reid, you don't have to say sorry. ;)

Reid Says Bush, Cheney Should Apologize

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said Sunday that President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should apologize for the actions of their aides in the CIA leak case. Reid, D-Nev., also said Bush should pledge not to pardon any aides convicted as a result of the investigation into the disclosure of CIA officer Valerie Plame's identity. "There has not been an apology to the American people for this obvious problem in the White House," Reid said. He said Bush and Cheney "should come clean with the American public." Reid added, "This has gotten way out of hand, and the American people deserve better than this."

Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, resigned Friday after he was indicted on five charges relating to statements he made to the FBI and a grand jury investigating the Plame leak. Reid also said that Karl Rove, the president's closest political adviser, should step down. Rove has not been charged with a crime.
