    For years these rats followed their pied piper Dick Cheney wherever he would lead them, whether is was to war or to torture or to destroy the Constitution. Now they are trying to avoid following Dick off of a cliff and into the abyss.

    I say we push them over the edge.

   
    Spin, spin, spin

    Watch John Cornyn, John Kyl, Judd Gregg and John McCain try to find some reason why Dick Cheney and the CIA is not criminal, but those mean allegations are going to put us all at risk.

    Pity the poor CIA, and poor helpless Dick Cheney.
   

More, plus Action below the fold

Please Recommend this call to action for investigations and a Special Prosecutor for Bush/Cheney so that others can use the contact information below throughout the day

       

    Dick Cheney is a War Criminal. War Crimes, High Crimes and Crimes against Humanity were committed by the Bush/Cheney Administration with the full endorsement of the Republican party. The rats are not stupid. They can tell the ship is sinking. They can tell that the public, We The People, want Justice. They will tell you torture is necessary and empathy is not. They will tell you nothing is illegal if a Republican does it, or the President does it, or his Vice President, or his legal adviser, whatever, Whatever it takes to keep the GOP ship from sinking. What they don't realize is that the iceberg that hit the GOP did so 8 years ago

    The ship is sinking.

    This is the beginning of the end.

    The rats are looking for the best place to hide.

    And we shouldn't let them get away with this.

    For years these politicians in the GOP have told us all how necessary this was, how very necessary and important in order to keep us safe.

    Despite being lead to war on false evidence.

    While defending torture.

    While perverting the Constitution to abridge the rights of citizens.

    While war crimes were going on under our noses.

   
    And now these same politicians want to blame the Democrats, blame them for drudging up the past. Blame Speaker Pelosi for daring to question the might of the C.I.A., blame President Obama for daring to even thinking of holding the Bush/Cheney regime accountable for the War Crimes and other High Crimes committed during their watch. Blame anybody, just as long as it isn't a Republican.

    The GOP knows that if Dick Cheney goes down they will all go down with him. The GOP knows that if full investigations do proceed their goose is cooked.

    Excuses, excuses.

    Well, excuses just won't cut it anymore. George W. Bush IS NOT THE PRESIDENT ANYMORE. No matter what the GOP thinks or how bad the Corporate media would like to pretend he is. Barack Obama is the President of the United States now. We The People elected him, and elections have consequences. Accountability must be one of them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
