Water Is Wet

Another of the Shrubbery’s staff is resigning to spend more time with his family legal team according to the Associated Press: Bush aide resigns for alleged wrongdoing

WASHINGTON – An aide to President Bush has resigned because of his alleged misuse of grant money from the U.S. Agency for International Development when he worked for a Cuban democracy organization.

Felipe Sixto was promoted on March 1 as a special assistant to the president for intergovernmental affairs and stepped forward on March 20 to reveal his alleged wrongdoing and to resign, White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said Friday. He said Sixto took that step after learning that his former employer, the Center for a Free Cuba, was prepared to bring legal action against him.

Stanzel said the alleged wrongdoing involved the misuse of money when Sixto was an official at the center.

It’s a good thing that people who work at the White House go through those extensive background checks. 😈

You mean that background check Bushmoron/Darth Cheney give them in the West wing when they tell them to drop their pants and bend over? Ahhhh… How sad dougboy Rove must be that he’s missing all that action now.

Must be that. I can’t possibly think of any other kind of background check that people such as ourselves had done. Oh… there is the pledge to love the Bushgod for ever, no matter what… I almost forgot that one. 🙂

Of course you know that the ‘Morons in Office'(tm) believe totally that any 100% loyal asskisser can just learn what they need to know on the job. It’s all easy, anyone can do it. Bushmoron certainly proved that beyond any doubt, right? LMAO

PS. It’s good to be back! 😉 LOL

How does he do it? Bush’s major talent seems to be finding, appointing, breeding and instructing felons. It takes a mighty insight to find so many.

I’m beginning to believe that this is part of the “frat boy” mentality. Among certain fraternities [and their low-rent counterpart – street gangs] you have to commit a crime as a rite of initiation so everyone can enforce loyalty with the threat of exposure.

Of course, once the crime is exposed, the hold is lost and they have to go. Loyalty is everything, overriding every other qualification.

Bernie Kerik is a prime example – there is no way the most cursory of background checks wouldn’t have produced some information on the various forms of misconduct the man had engaged in over the years. They aren’t even trying anymore.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they hired Osama bin Laden at this White House.

Non-felons need not apply, as they are in the business of dirty work.

“We like the dark,” said all the [Bushists]. “Dark for dark business. There are many hours before the dawn.” (Apologies to Tolkien, and to his admirable dwarves.)

This administration is as near to a criminal conspiracy as anything I’ve seen in American politics, and yes, I believe they’re worse than Nixon’s crew. The only background checks are the government checks these folks secretly write to their cronies.

Wonder what they’d have hired Osama bin Laden to do…

Well, Michael, the last time they hired him to create an insurgency in Afghanistan to fight foreign troops, so he probably still has a federal contractor number. His association with St. Ronnie should make him a shoo in.

Nixon didn’t end wars without a lot of pushing, but he also didn’t wander around starting them, and he did do some good on the environmental sector and energy conservation. The Shrubbery only copies the worst of Nixon’s policies.
