Republicans Urging Bush To Release Abramoff Meeting Records

This is interesting. I think it’s strategy. A rope-a-dope maneuver, if you will.

Bush’s immediate stonewalling of the media has them absolutely salivating to get their hands on the records. It also has all the leftist pundits pushing all sorts of innuendo about what those records will reveal. In reality, though, I don’t think those records of meetings between White House aides and Abramoff hold anything all that damning at all.

So what’s going to happen is this: Bush is going to let the calls for the records build to a fevered pitch. Congressional Republicans are going to ask Bush to release them so that they look like good guys interested in transparency and “getting to the bottom of things.” Then, in the next week or so, Bush will release the records. Everybody will see there’s nothing all that important in them and the whole thing will go away with those in the media and on the left who cried the loudest for the release of the records looking a little foolish.
Of course, this is all just speculation on my part, but if you think back it is exactly what happened with Bush’s military medical records. The media kept pushing and demanding to see the records and Bush kept resisting. Finally, when the demands had reached their peak, Bush released them and the media was stuck having to report to the public that the most important thing in these all-important records they’d demanded was some details about the removal of a hemorrhoid from Bush’s bottom.
