    Back when Paul Wolfowitz was nominated to head the World Bank, there was a discussion on the board where we were questioning whether he was the best choice for the position. I did a search, but cannot seem to find that discussion. Since then,

    So, if I understand him correctly, the unclear rules are to blame?
    Hmmmmmm.......

    Wolfowitz is not a conservative, and it appears he will not "step down." That being the case, does it bother you that he won't?

    Yeah, rub it in.
    I am back home in Tampa, after a LONG business trip. Now it's back to the Commonwealth for the big celebration. It's next weekend, you know.

    God's Blessings to you and your family,
    BiR

    I was talking about "us" conservatives. Those of us on this board. I didn't include Wolfie.

    I said he should step own. But I have bigger things on my mind to be upset about, I suppose if it does bother some folks, they should turn up the heat on the guy. But it's not an issue I'm going to get worked up over.

    Mother's day ? What celebration are we talking about ?

    It snowed yet again today, BTW.

    And Tampa, that's by Cuba, right ? :wavey:

    I guess he never said he would restore integrity to the office though, did he?

    All kidding aside, I remember having the discussion back when he was nominated, and I expressed my belief that Wolfowitz was a very bad choice. Unfortunately, it appears that I was correct.

    Shame on you, Bro. Curtis :laugh:

    I have my tickets, and I'll be there to participate in the big party. You and yours are most certainly invited!

    Again, God's Blessings to you and yours,
    BiR (it's not snowing here in Tampa)

    Yes, and we even celebrate the fact that settlers in Virginia were here for one reason: to make money.

    What would you have called a pacifist in Nazi Germany? A traitor I suppose.

    It does look like ethics rules were broken, and I still think he should step down.


    SaN, I have no idea where your idiotic statement came from, and why you try and make people you don't like look bad, but I have talked with you enought to know that you are not worth talking to. This question, as all others from you, will go unanswered. Have a nice day.

    Brother Curtis,
    You scared me for a second. I thought that SaN stood for me. Sorry for the misunderstanding

    Apparently, the Administration disagrees with you.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aig8Q4CytIqs&refer=home

    "A very good president of the World Bank?"

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18665386/

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18588462/

    Wolfowitz has their "strong support."

    Wow.......

    Bush is wrong. Should be a no-brainer, eh ? How many times you want us to say it ?

    Bye, bye, Mr. Wolfowitz.
    :wavey:
    I would've never thought it possible to do such a horribly bad job at managing the World Bank. Undoubtedly, he will turn up somewhere else in the Administration, or perhaps he will secure a fellowship at the Husdon Institute - with Scooter Libby.

    The big question is who will be nominated by the Administration. Judging by the stellar performance of Mr. Wolfowitz, I can only imagine........

    The best "take" on this subject thus far:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18729537/

    Can't..................stop......................LAUGHING.
    :laugh:

    This is further proof that the editorial page of the WSJ simply has no credibility.
