    Default Is Cowen tainted by association?

    Fair enough question. We can hardly expect FF to be full of angels given their recent history? No unshamed Taoiseach since Jack Lynch.

    No not really. His tenures as a Minister precede the Haughey-era, unlike those of most of the national-profile FF politicians implicated in the Tribunal scandals.

    Yes. as is anyone who believes Bertie. Their blind belief proves them so gullible that one can only question their ability.

    Could you imagine that same level of credulity in a tough EU negotiation, for example?

    We'll not know until he goes after the money and investigates what the situation is re: St Lukes.

    We now know why El Berto didn't go after Flynnstone etc

    Of course he is tainted, he has been standing beside Bertie for years, he might not know all the local stuff around Drumcondra, but he will know Bertie's m.o. with his mates JB,DR and TC and has to know the answers to the bigger questions/doubts otherwise how can he deny them.
    Albert will have clued him up as to what he was/is dealing with in Bertie, Cowen could make a good start tonight by postponing a decision on Bev until he is in the saddle proper and call the Flynn family's bluff once and for all.
    Albert could help give him a good start on Fri by putting the boot into Bertie.

    Of course he is. He stated on many occasions that he believed Bertie didn't do anything wrong, so we know how low his standards are.

    The fact that he is willing to let Cooper Flynn rejoin FF is further evidence of his low standards.
