He's now saying he didn't know last week that he would be making this decision. He hadn't confirmed anything with Rumsfield or Gates.

I report...you figure it out.

This is killing me. I can't believe it. What on earth is wrong with him today? It's like something much more than just the elections has him rattled to the core.

I have cried enough for us all. I take things too serious sometimes but I am really hurt. The President is speaking now and I love him so dearly. Thanks to the MSM, they got their way. They are happiest when they are beating this man up. Maybe the MSM should realize that sadness comes to each family and it can come to some of them also. I understand your feelings.

We aren't going to get fresh eyes, we are getting a new bird who will take the fall.

Just think of what is going to happen when all the defense spending bills don't make it out of committee.

he can't really polish this turd...

He knows dang well what the remaining 2 years of his administration will be.

My guesses on "investigation of the month"
1. WMD INtelligence "failure"
2. Iraq War "failure"
3. "loss" of OBL
4. Katrina "Failure"
5. Energy Policy of Evil Dick Cheney
and a couple more..."Corruption" investigations

now figure 2-4 months each and we're ready for Presidential primaries!

This Administration is pretty much over, but Bush will keep swinging with what he has left.

On the "Compromise" side we will also see amnesty for illegals, increased minimum wage, expanded benefits for seniors, increased entitlements

Yes, Bush just said he lied to a reporter, so as to not effect the election.

I'm not sure that it would have helped republicans at all in the election for Bush to announce this last week, as I think we can see conservatives would have been disallusioned, and I don't think too many people would have voted republicans just because Rumsfeld was going.

I do like that this is being seen as an election on Iraq, whch it was. That should make it hard for the democrats to pass much of their agenda, since they never got votes based on Iraq.

Bush is also right that the other big factor was scandal, and while some was manufactured and democrat scandal was ignored so far, the republicans did have problems with scandal, Abramoff was not a good thing, and that also doesn't help democrats pass their agenda.

If it wasn't for Judges and Immigration, I wouldn't be upset (that and losing my own Senator really sucks, I'd love to be able to say that at least Virginia did it's part, but we didn't, and my OWN COUNTY didn't go for Allen, which sickens me).

Bush will still send good Judges, they just won't get voted on, but he was for immigration reform that will now pass.

OK, so now Bush is saying he did not LIE about Rumsfeld, because he hadn't made the decision before he talked to Gates, and Bush wasn't going to make the final decision until after the election because he didn't want it to be political.

So that's good. At least he didn't lie to the reporters.

The big SELLOUT. RWR wouldn't be cowing down.

When I saw W standing on the rubble at Ground Zero with a bullhorn, I thought, "We got ourselves a president!" Now its 180 degree turn.

Pres. Bush: I didn't want to inject a major policy decision like this in the middle of an election. I gave you that answer to move you onto your next question. I also had not finished talking with Gates

No, Bush knew that firing Rumsfeld before the election would anger the base, so he held off. However, I don't think the final decision was made until last night, when they saw the magnitude of the losses. They are just doing damage control, bring in some one new, gain some time, take away a mayor talking point away from the opposition.

Even Rush didn't know how to respond and just went to break.

Rush just cut the presser on WABC - Rush sounds completely drained. he knows, as we do, that this presser is a total disaster.

Reporters are kind of dumb.

The VP is elected, not appointed.

A resignation would be at Cheney's option, not GW's.

I figure if I talk to myself I will always have an intelligent audience.

Now a big part of my brain thinks that this Commander-in-Chief HAS to know what he's doing.

Did he threaten the congress pubbies with throwing Rumsfeld under the bus if they lose? Better, did he PROMISE the congress pubbies with throwing Rumsfeld under the bus if they lose?

I'm trying to be calm but it's going to take a lot to convince me that this so obvious capitulation to the loonies is a good thing and further, WHY NOW?

I'm not done yet. Kinda like talking to myself.
