President "I don't do speeches or press conferences" Bush scheduling another speech on Iraq? Hmmmmm...
U.S. and Iraqi troops are on the offensive against insurgents who want to disrupt Iraq's October 15 vote on a new constitution, President Bush said Wednesday, and he plans to give a detailed speech on the progress of the broader conflict against terrorism Thursday.When is it that President Bush makes terrorism speeches that make him look "presidential?" Oh yeah, when they desperately want to deflect from something really bad!
The D.C. Rumor mill is thrumming with whispers that 22 indictments are about to be handed down on the outed-CIA agent Valerie Plame case. The last time the wires buzzed this loud — that Tom DeLay would be indicted and would step down from his leadership post in the House — the scuttlebutters got it right.By the way..."Radar" is a very well-read "inside-the-beltway" publication so chances are good there is something to this.
Can it be a coincidence that the White House appears to be distancing President Bush from embattled aide Karl Rove? “He’s been missing in action at more than one major presidential event,” a member of the White House press corps tells us.
If the word on the street is right a second time, we have a bit of advice for Rove: Go with vertical stripes, they’re way more slimming.
Isn't there some saying about "chickens coming home to roost?"
