Tennessee Bush "Pioneers" I know should be outraged

Chances are you have met one of the Bush "pioneers" - those individuals who have contributed $100,000 to elect, or re-elect Bush as President - right here in our home state.
I know three "pioneers" myself - a Nashville attorney, a Nashville physician and a Middle Tennessee local elected official. All are honest, hard working, decent individuals who love their country and are sincere in their belief that the President is the right man for the job. They proudly wear their "pioneer" lapel pin/badge, and are happy to talk to you about why they support this President.
I will not poke fun at these individuals. I believe that people have the right to support whomever they want for elected office. While I certainly disagree on their choice for President, I admire their devotion and commitment to a cause.
But I wonder how my friends and their fellow Tennessee "pioneers" think about all this to do about fellow Bush "pioneer" Jack Abramoff. Abramoff is the DC lobbyist who has admitted to conspiracy, bribery and a whole host of other illegal activities.
In recent weeks, responding to falling poll #s for the President and Republican politicians across the board on matters of ethics, the Bush White House and Republican operatives have started to try to shift attention away from their own Party's dealings with Abramoff by claiming that Democrats should share the blame for the lobbyist.
The facts are that Abramoff is a Bush "pioneer", that he had secret visits to the White House (the Bush Administration continues to hold its ground by not releasing any details of his visits and meetings), and that he was a by-product of the Republican Party's K-Street strategy to put GOP operatives in positions of influence as lobbyists in DC.
Abramoff's Republican roots and training as a GOP operative even go back to his days as a college Republican, working alongside other notables GOP leaders such as Grover Norquist (one of the architects of the failed Bush economic agenda), and Ralph Reed (one of the architects of the Bush so-called moral/religious agenda).
The "pioneers" I know should be outraged by what Abramoff did, and should be especially disgusted by their own Party's attempts to shift responsibility for creating Abramoff and giving his the tools he needed to do his dirty work in DC.

This White House and Congress are prime example what happens when one group of people are in power for too long of a period of time.
It is tiem for a change and the White House should release are document concerning this matter.

In case anyone forgets or gets confused, Jack Abramoff made ZERO contributions to Democrats. NO Democrats are implicated in the Abramoff investigations, unlike, say, the former House Majority Leader, and up to 20 some-odd Republicans.

O c'mon. Then why are there several Dems rushing to give their Abramoff-connected money to charity? (CBS, New York Times, WaPo have all reported on it.)

The truth is. Abramoff directed his Indian tribe clients and his colleagues at his lobbying firm to give donations to Democrats. They got Abramoff money. You know it. I know it. Stop lying.
