PCR figures it out
Paul Craig Roberts speculates on the real reason for Spygate:
One reason is that the Bush administration is being used to concentrate power in the executive. The old conservative movement, which honors the separation of powers, has been swept away. Its place has been taken by a neoconservative movement that worships executive power.Hmmm...Maybe it was Hillary who had the affair with Monica, while Bill was fooling around with John Kerry. That would explain pretty much everything. Seriously, I'm pretty sure we've got NAFTA and welfare "reform" and a whole lot of other crappy stuff only because the Repugs had the dirt on Clinton right from the start.
The other reason is that the Bush administration could not go to the FISA secret court for warrants because it was not spying for legitimate reasons and, therefore, had to keep the court in the dark about its activities.
What might these illegitimate reasons be? Could it be that the Bush administration used the spy apparatus of the US government in order to influence the outcome of the presidential election?
Could we attribute the feebleness of the Democrats as an opposition party to information obtained through illegal spying that would subject them to blackmail?
