Unlike the other rogue Republican Presidents before him, George W. will be left swinging in the wind by his handlers as he attempts to extricate himself from the lies and deception in which he wrapped himself. He violated every domestic and international law pursuing political and financial gain for himself and his friends through the destruction and invasion of a sovereign nation against the will of the world, including the killing and maiming of thousands of innocent men, women and children in the process. He will soon have to account for his crimes.


Tricky Dickey Nixon insulated himself from his high crimes and misdemeanors through his close knit organization who would have all fallen on their swords for the treasonous leader to “protect the presidency” which would have extended his rule maybe even beyond legal limits and would certainly have added four, six....maybe 8 more years to War in Vietnam. Except for the dumbest move in all world politics since the beginning of time, that being Nixon’s secret tape recording of himself and everyone in his inner circle as they discussed their crimes and illegal actions. Over 50 of Nixon’s staff, cabinet and directors were either indicted, found guilty, jailed or confessed to a virtual encyclopedia of felonies and misdemeanors. Only Nixon escaped thanks to a final shielding and insulation from prosecution as a result of a Presidential Pardon “for any and all crimes that MAY have been committed...” by a grateful President Ford.


Regan was likewise shielded from his crimes and those of his administration. He was always given “plausible deniability” while his underlings carried out his orders and took the heat when things went sour. With the assassination attempt and later on loosing his marbles, he needed the assistance of his devoted wife and her Ouija board to insulate Ronald from responsibilities of his government. His aspirations and goals had to be put on hold until his replacement could be sworn in.


George Bush I, chip of the old Ronald McDonald block, retained Regan’s entire criminal enterprise and then some. Rogue military men conducted their exploits and illegal deals with terrorists, while defying Congress and engineering further erosion of America resulting in investigations and criminal trials which landed many in jail, found most everyone in the administration guilty of something, but Bush himself escaped unscathed, protected by all those loyalists that surrounded him. Not one of them would give up their Commander-in-Chief, regardless of the deal offered. Bush himself did nothing to hurt himself and avoided shooting himself in the foot by not making himself available for questions about Iran-Contra, all the while claiming that he knew nothing of the scandal. He did know enough to pardon everyone on his way out.


Nothing above will carry over to the new Commander-in Thief. Bush II the Omni-Potent has stuck his face and his mouth way out ahead of his Iraq invasion, using every possible opportunity to make it known that HE himself has decided to take action, and that “you’re either with us or against us” or that he doesn’t care what anyone else thinks, he didn't’t even care if anyone else would join us in this invasion, he decided to make war on Iraq and that’s that!  His link of 9-11 to Iraq was pure magic, as was his guarantee that Iraq had weapons of Mass Destruction. With his assurance that the U.S.A. itself was in “eminent danger”, he indicated that he was on a mission from God and had His blessings, which the Far Christian Right rubber stamped. Think of the difficulty Bush will have in laying this failure on God for being wrong. Even Faldwell will have a hard time swallowing that one.


Undoubtedly, Ashcroft, Rove, Cheney, Wolfowitz, and the usual suspects are busy behind the curtain pulling the strings while Bush dances, but they are leaving HIM out front this time and when it hits the fan, they could all claim they were following the orders of Bush himself. Not one of them will shield Bush II. They will have finally wised up.


Call it lessons learned from the 80’s. After all, why sacrifice dozens while ONE accomplishes the same thing. The criminal back room remains viable, while Bush is left to twist in the wind!
