from MSNBC interesting comments from Joe, a big supporter, now turning on GWB.. it seems less and less are affiliating with him, pretty soon it is gonna just be GWB, Savage, Malkin, Limbaugh and a few other right wing nut jobs.. comments about how if Clinton went against top commanders, impeachment proceedings would begin are tellling. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16313163/ MICHAEL CROWLEY, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“THE NEW REPUBLICĂ˘â‚¬: Yes, I mean, Joe, thereĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs something very unsettling about what weĂ˘â‚¬Ëśre starting to hear from Bush. For so long, his mantra was that he was taking his lead from the commanders on the ground, and that was thisĂ˘â‚¬â€ťyou know, this ultimate card he could play of credibility... SCARBOROUGH: And Michael, as long as he said thatĂ˘â‚¬â€ťexactly. As long as he said that, it didnĂ˘â‚¬Ëśt matter that only 12 percent of Americans support this presidentĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs effort to send more troops to Iraq. But when all of his generals abandon him, when the Joint Chiefs abandon him, the admirals abandon him, when John Abizaid abandons him, when Colin Powell abandons him, everybody abandons him, heĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs standing alone! He just doesnĂ˘â‚¬Ëśt seem to have any credibility. And this is extraordinarily disturbing to me, as a guy who supported this war and supported this president twice. CROWLEY: No, thereĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs something almost kind of alarming about it. I mean, heĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs been telling us the whole time, These guys know whatĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs best, I take their lead. And theyĂ˘â‚¬Ëśre saying, This is notĂ˘â‚¬â€ťnot uniformly, but many of them, many of the senior guys, the smartest guys, Abizaid, people with a lot of credibility, are saying this is not the way to go, and it looks likes heĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs not going to listen to them. And thereĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs something quite alarming about that. You know, things areĂ˘â‚¬â€ťyou thought things couldnĂ˘â‚¬Ëśt get worse, and now you have a situation where, gosh, heĂ˘â‚¬Ëśs overruling the people who really do seem to know best. And weĂ˘â‚¬Ëśre sort of in uncharted territory here, if you ask me. SCARBOROUGH: Well, this is uncharted territory. And Josh Green, I want you, if you will, to imagine, how would Republicans have responded if President Bill Clinton had ignored the advice of all of his Joint Chiefs, his top general in the war zone, his former secretary of state, and 80 percent of Americans? Is it not a stretch to say that many Republicans would have considered impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton if this situation were identical?
