Rumsfeld Resignation

| | Comments (0)
This keeps cropping up. There are a few people who want Rumsfeld to resign because they think he has not well-implemented policy, or because he is simply not good at his job. But overwhelmingly, most people want him to resign because they disagree with Iraq policy and think it is a failure; but Rummy is only doing what Bush wants in that respect, so a new SecDef would presumably not change anything.

So why a new SecDef? In case it is not already obvious to you: it is because a new SecDef requires Senate hearings, which would give the Democrats an opportunity to attack Bush and the Iraq policies on TV, 24/7, for a week or two.

That's it. That's the reason. And now you know, if you didn't already.
