Firing Dick Cheney
The Los Angeles Times has called on Bush to fire his
Last week Press Secretary Scott McClellan resigned, and Karl Rove
The Times editorial said “The remaking of the president in the public eye likely will require more than last week’s game of musical chairs.” Treasury Secretary John Snow is considered most likely to be the next chair thrown off the Titanic.
The Times said it would be more meaningful if Rumsfeld resigned and Cheney was fired. “Throwing Cheney overboard would be an implicit repudiation of the excessively hawkish foreign policy with which the vice president, even more than Rumsfeld, has been associated.”
The paper also said “Bush has acknowledged that he has spent much of his political capital on Iraq, and the way to replenish the reserves is to replace the officials most associated with the overreaching that led to the tragedy in Iraq — and with the administration's broader disdain for diplomacy.”
Well, it’s a thought, but is it possible? Dick Cheney getting fired by George W. Bush — imagine that, a ventriloquist getting fired by his dummy.
