Karl Rove

Ok I have kept this under my skin for long enough.
Karl Rove is known at the White House as the "the architect," the strategist behind President Bush’s political victories. Sometimes he’s even called "Bush’s brain." Now "the leaker" may become his new nickname, and some wonder if the White House deputy chief of staff will survive.
For someone whose reputation is based on maneuvering behind the scenes, Rove has left himself open to attack with revelations about his role in leaking information two years ago about a CIA officer. The leak is the subject of a federal criminal investigation.
Democrats are demanding Rove’s resignation or firing. Some Republicans are nervously wondering whether he went too far and whether he was honest with Bush about what he had done. President Bush, at an Oval Office photo opportunity This week, was asked directly whether he would fire Rove, in keeping with a pledge in June, 2004, to dismiss any leakers in the case. The president of course did not respond.
This week White House press secretary Scott McClellan refused to answer questions about Rove and was slammed by the White House Press Corp in a way that is starting to hurt his crediblity.
Someone started a thread last nite regarding the WH press corps fileting of McClellen yesterday, that the reason for the new attitude of blood sport is because they no longer fear retribution.
I think there’s going to be lots of payback. imagine all the reporters who were threatened by Rove in the last two elections, they’ve been cut loose.
To David Gregory(NBC), CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the media world.
Let the games begin!

  1. Karl Rove does need to get what he deserves. However, I think the news media doesn’t have the endurance needed to take Karl Rove down. They’ve lost their edge since Clinton left office. In addition, the RNC will probably rally around their hero. I recently read in the Washington Post that the RNC is circulating talking points on how to deflect attention from this story. Their strategy is to personally attack all those that accuse Karl Rove of wrong doing and continue to do so until the President nominates his person for the Supreme Court. At which point the RNC thinks that the news media’s attention will be diverted enough that this story will pass.I certainly hope that I am wrong and that the take him down!-Troy
