Card's Departure Still Puzzling
Thursday, March 30, 2006
(SNN Washington) When White House Chief of Staff Andy Card a couple of days ago, the thought going through everyone's head was "What has Andy done to get indicted?"
Card does not seem to be guilty of anything
But even coming after the President announced that there would be no shakeup in his administration just last week, Andy Card doesn't seem to have anything at all to be indicted. Unlike other members of the administration, Card does not seem to be guilty of anything, not leaking top secret information, obstruction of justice or stealing from Target stores.
It has been theorized that Card's resignation is a concession to Republicans unhappy with the handling of the War in Iraq. In doing this, they lose someone who is seemingly well liked in Washington and competent, but get to keep those that have been managing the war. This would be consistent with the logic that the Bush administration has displayed in the past.
The Bush administration does not reward success or punish failure. They reward those who stay the course, and punish the weak. For instance, the last time Donald Rumsfeld offered his resignation, Bush refused him, but had three members of the White House cleaning staff killed.
"all things are presumed to be lawfully done, until it is shown [to be] in the reverse"
I can't help feeling that the Bible is a foreign concept to this administration. Or, I should say the Holy Bible. They probably are all familar with Bob's Bar Bible, 1001 Drink Recipes.
