The question Bush can't answer.Follow stormbear

That is the big question isn't it?
I know Cheney is the real President and Bush is the puppet, but how will things go without Rove? Will Rove simply phone it in? I don't think that level of governmental and media manipulation can occur if you are in the middle of Texas armed with nothing but a Blackberry.
My theory is, the push into Iran will continue along with everything else on Cheney's to-do list, but Rove won't be around to hold together what is left of the GOP. That was something Rove was good at, keeping the Republicans in Congress on track even though BushCo was ripping the nation apart. Without Rove's hands-on cheerleading / arm twisting / bald-faced lies, I doubt the Congressional GOP will stay on track with President Bush as much as they have been.
What will keep them on board? Cheney's warm, loving presence?
If anything, Rove's departure may destabilize the GOP. At some point, they know they will need to start covering their ass and without Rove's people management skills, there may be a sea change coming for this White House.
SPECIAL FAVOR SECTION
Never let it be said liberals don't support the troops.
During the first Gulf War, I began collecting books to send to my college friends serving in Saudi Arabia. I must have sent hundreds of books. When US troops got deployed to Iraq, I started doing it again but I knew the job was too big for one person to do it, so I set up Books For Soldiers, a 501 (c)(3) charity to send free books, dvds and video games to deployed US soldiers.
But I wasn't that smart since I only thought the war would last 6 weeks tops in Iraq. What was I thinking? Now, FOUR years later, we are still shipping books.
But today I need your help. There is a contest sponsored by VAJoe.com, they will contribute $2,000 to charitable military organizations next month in its Charity for Charities event. You can vote on your favorite charitable military organizations. The top four charitable organizations and a randomly selected organization will share $2,000 in donations from VAJoe. Books for Soldiers has been included in the event.
The Alexa Traffic Rank for BooksForSoldiers.com is 242,975 and you would not believe our bandwidth bills!
So these next few days, I am asking (begging actually) for your vote for Books For Soldiers. It won't take you 30 seconds to help a liberal out!
