The Man Behind the Curtain
Congressional Republicans have also been signaling that they want to put some distance between their agenda and the White House's potential legal and political woes, seeking to cast the leak case as an inside-the-Beltway phenomenon of little interest to most voters.
"I think we just need to stick to our knitting on the topics and the subjects the American people care about," Senator Sam Brownback, Republican of Kansas, said on "Fox News Sunday."
All I can say is : if Senator Brownback thinks that the American public is not interested in a case where a highly trained employee of the United States government is rendered unemployable and many highly sensitive investigations are threatened... Senator Brownback would be wrong.
If Senator Brownback thinks that the American public is not interested in a case of the United States President lying to us in order to convince us to go halfway around the world and visit Shock and Awe upon an innocent population who were just living out their lives before we got there..... Then Senator Brownback would be wrong.
If Senator Brownback thinks that the American public is uninterested in a case where high officials (who btw are consulting with and offering advice to the president on a daily basis) of the president's administration have committed felonies, not to mention TREASON while in office.... well then Senator Brownback would be wrong.
When are the republicans going to realize that we've looked at the emperor and seen him naked, and the picture is not a nice one. No amount of "move on, just move on, there's nothing here to see - ignore the man behind the curtain - he's not important." is gonna cut it - we've seen the man behind the curtain too, and we are not impressed.
