The Meaning Of The Word "If"

Oh, so now Dubya says heads will roll in Bushco “if a crime has been committed" (hmmm...).

Under that logic, let’s consider this. The Enron scandal broke around February-March of 2002, right? So it is now July 2005, and Ken Lay, former chief executive and chairman, STILL has not come to trial (though that is scheduled to take place next January). So does Dubya mean that we could be looking at the possibility of THREE YEARS worth of investigations of Rove, “Scooter” Libby, Cheney et al before a verdict would be rendered in a potential criminal trial (which, in all likelihood, would not take place until after this crew is mercifully out of office anyway)?

Putting aside the fact that this is an unbelievable flip flop by Smirk (which he got caught in because, when he made his original statement about people being let go from the Plame mess, he probably didn’t expect it to amount to much), it also points out a basic fact of Bushco life, and that is that Rove runs everything, and he quite simply is not going to go anywhere unless he is manacled and let out of the White House by U.S. marshals (and wouldn’t we all LOVE to see that!).
