It's obvious to anyone who is willing to think about it outside of the crafted view handed out by the MSM, that the goal around the whole "PlameGate" non-event is to bring down Bush with any conceivable scandal possible. Jeff's post today makes the point, and there is abundant evidence of it everywhere. Eric Pfeiffer has just such evidence in an article up at National Review that details his encounter with MoveOn.org in D.C. This blurb says it all:
When it was my turn to speak, I asked Matzzie if it was fair for MoveOn to be demanding Rove’s termination when he had not even been formally accused, let alone found guilty, of any wrongdoing. Matzzie looked irritated and said, “I have to go speak to the group," before hustling into the crowd of protesters who had begun moving from the White House gates back onto Pennsylvania Avenue. Just when I thought I had missed my opportunity, Mattzie reemerged, pointed a finger at me and shouted, “He needs to be held accountable! Now!" before disappearing back into the crowd.
As the protesters encircled Mattzie with shouts of “Whose house? Our house!” the MoveOn operative waved a MoveOn press release in the air then repeated his talking points to the crowd. Mattzie seemed to struggle with his words, stumbling over the line about Rove and patriotism, before finding the strength to yell, “Rove must go!” Meanwhile, near the back of the crowd a small group had decided to take the protest in a different direction. I heard cries of “Bush’s Iraq policy…” before a MoveOn organizer quickly rushed to the scene and put the demonstrators back on message.
And their message is clear. Rove has long been a target of MoveOn, but he is far from the big prize. The group’s press release was more forward, asking, “Next Question: Did Rove Act Alone? What did Bush and Cheney know and when did they know it?” Mattzie is further quoted in the release stating, “While it’s nearly impossible to believe that Karl Rove didn’t know he was outing an undercover CIA agent to a reporter, the fact remains he did reveal her identity as Ambassador Joe Wilson’s wife who worked for the CIA. Rove either broke the law or was grossly negligent. The president should fire him as promised last year. Rove may be only the tip of the iceberg: What did the president, the vice president and their top aides know about any of this, and when did they know it?” [emphasis mine]
