Not Much to Say - Rumsfeld Resigns

Today is one of those days – I really don't want to write anything. Not sure why I don't, but I don't.

I was talking to hubbie last night, and I cannot believe how time flies. It seems like we have 50 million things to do, and I just can't get everything done I want done. I want to write more (no time). I want to read more (no time). I want to get an advanced degree in astrophysics (no time).

I just heard Donald Rumsfeld resigned. Donald Rumsfeld sent in his resignation after the Abu Ghraib Prison incidents, and President Bush did not accept his resignation. After the mid-term elections, it looks like Rumsfeld resigned again and this time Bush accepted the resignation. Bush is speaking now, and what I don't understand is that Rumsfeld has so much more to do with Abu Ghraib Prison than he does with pulling out of Iraq.

Bush said that people in the US are concerned with a lack of progress in Iraq. You know, some of us don't think we should have gone there in the first place (second place, the first attach of Iraq was different). I still don't see how attaching Iraq gives us less terrorists. None of this has to do with Rumsfeld.

Rumsfeld changed the military - and many don't like what he has done. I don't know exactly what he did, but he has privatized much of the military. If I had more time, I guess I could find out exactly what that means.

I just don't feel good. Maybe tomorrow.

Everytime Bush opens his mouth, my eyes bleed.

Scuttlebutt is that Rummy didn't resign, but "resigned", if you get my drift.

I think Rumsfeld timed his resignation to help deflect some of the criticism away from Bush after the election losses on Tuesday. This doesn't just happen overnight. How better to steal the Democrat's thunder than by giving the media an even bigger story to chase after? It's pure genius, it also allows Bush to change some of his tactics in Iraq without losing face. He can say that the new guy brought in "valuable new perspectives" and he doesn't have to publicly oppose Rummie. It's political timing at it's best.

And I do hope you feel better as well.

As I wrote in my own blog this morning, Rumsfeld was the best ally the Democrats could have had in that election.
I hope you're feeling better soon.

The first thing the dems should do is seek repeal the 22nd ammendment of the constitution and let Bush run for a third time. Bush is the best candidate that the dems have!

I hope you're feeling better today, Leesa -- even though you haven't posted anything yet. It's often YOU who is the cheerful, encouraging one when someone's feeling down (I remember some of the truly touching posts you wrote when Musey was going through her own tough times). Now it's our turn to send some positive, heartfelt energy YOUR way! Hang in there, sweetie; this too shall pass...

Positive heartfelt energy.

I hope you die one day.


I think that's pretty positive! At least you're reminded your human and everyone has their bad days. ^_^
