Oedipus Wrecks

Joe Wilson is coming out swinging, and he seems to know exactly which buttons to push. I was thinking earlier today that if the press wants to get under Junior's skin, they will ask something along the lines of: "How can you be certain that Karl Rove did not leak Valerie Plame's identity to reporters including Robert Novak when your father fired Karl Rove for leaking information to Novak in 1992?"

Joe Wilson is way ahead of me. He's going to be on NBC's Today on Thursday.
(H)e told The BRAD BLOG that he planned to read a letter on air which he received from Bush’s father, President George H.W. Bush shortly after an article of his was printed in the San Jose Weekly News, on October 13, 2002, in which Wilson related his concerns about the pitfalls of the approach to Iraq being taken at the time by both the U.N. and the U.S.

In reply to that article, Wilson said that the former President wrote that he had "read your article and I agree with a lot of it."

Additionally, Wilson explained, Bush 41’s own National Security Advisor, Brett Scowcroft had contacted him to ask whether he "could walk on over to the White House with the letter" at the time. Which apparently he did.

Wilson also had sent the article to Bush 41’s Secretary of State, James Baker.

"None of them responded saying you’re a Democratic partisan hack and your views suck," said Wilson.

Comparing Junior to Poppy is as good a way as any to push his buttons.

Push, push, push the Bush.

I whole heartedly agree with this one. If Junior is even allowed to hear it. He makes a point of not having to hear anything like that, because he starts twitching for the whole-world to see.

It is going to be a cold-day in hell when he gives another press conference. It sure as hell won't be while the press coorps is hopping mad for lying right in their faces.

He really cannot afford to "disasemble" now and he does not want to hear those famous words, "What did the president and when did he know it?"
