Why the republiCons are defending torture so vehemently.
The republiCon parth bought into Sonny-boy bush and Darth Cheney hook line and sinker. So go them so go the party. So the republiCons last ditch defense is to rationalize and justify torture.

And if President Obama lets this slide, he will be playing into their hands. They will rebound stronger than ever. They will say it is a vindication for their sociopathic behavior.

1. Thank Gawd the pubbies are idiots
Because if they got on the right side of things and helped us put Bushco away for this most obvious of criminal acts, they'd be redeemed in most people's eyes.

But since they are idiots, and Osama Bin Laden (laden with 9/11) is still on the loose, they are looking even worse than they did just two days ago.

For the good of My country, I would like to see Justice done. If the pubbies believe in Justice and the good of the country, they will join us in lancing the Bush error.

But they won't, they will forever be known as the party that had it all and blew it.

9. They do, but...
Their followers are losing their faith in Bushco and as we proceed with investigations their faith will be utterly destroyed.

Remember, after 9/11 Bushco had 90% approval. Now it's about 20%. They are going down!!

2. They can't admit that they were wrong
Edited on Sun Apr-26-09 11:47 AM by supernova
to overthrow two centuries of American scruples codified into our laws. To do so, means, in their world, that their whole POV is a house of cards. Which it is. Their egos can't take it. They'll all have mental breakdowns if they, for a minute, realize what they've done.

3. They can't think of a way of getting something for themselves by admitting torture
They're only hope is to be contrarians, you know, just in case there's still some political capital in that act all by itself.
