High Crimes

The current revelations that Bush authorized the leak of classified information should come as no surprise to us on this side of the political fence. This kind of behavior has been the hallmark of this Whitehouse from the get go. Everything they do is for political reasons.It also follows that information they are getting from the illegal wiretaps is being used for political purposes either now or in the near future. If you don't think Rove will use whatever he can get his hands on from whatever source, legal or not then you are kidding yourself.
I am not sure that George W. Bush is the most dishonest President in history but the damage he has wrought through his dishonest dealings with the American people, the Congress and the rest of the world will surely set a very high benchmark. Goddess forbid we ever have another President give it a challenge.
It will be very interesting to see how this develops over the next few days. This cannot play out well in the heartland. When the base realizes how cavalierly Bush compromised national security for purely political reasons it will begin to dawn on even the slowest that Bush really doesn't have our security as close to his heart as he so loudly and often professes.
