    Karl Rove - Getting Out

    How long before the left-wing spinsters come up with some bs conspiracy theory as to why Karl Rove is quitting?

    I'm sure it's already happening. I honestly don't know much about Rove, other than the left hates him with a passion, and they have been on a witch hunt for quite a while. I am looking for leaders who are out addressing issues, rather than trying to bring down the opposition. That seems pretty rare right now though.

    Good luck finding that in the Republican party.

    I'm sure if a dem gets elected president the reps will do the same thing the dems have been doing over the last 6+ years.

    It's even funnier when either party destroys itself as the case with the Dems during Clinton's second term as well as the reps with Bush's second.

    Anyone else see history repeating itself?

    Maybe some of the ethical and moral values of the Christian groups he's been manipulating over the years have rubbed off on him, and he's sprouted a conscience...

    Or, maybe it's just no fun anymore, since his buddies Tom DeLay and Ralph Reed aren't around...

    Gotta love the useless political jab.

    Sorry but this is the stuff that annoys me about politics...and it happens from both sides.

    Re: Karl Rove - Getting Out

    And the intial two posts before CyGal's weren't useless political jabs?

    Nothing about Rove? Nothing about what'll happen to the administration without him? Nothing about going forward? Just a shot at "left-wingers"

    Re: Karl Rove - Getting Out

    Don't read anything into this, but did anyone see the "Daily Show" farewell to Karl Rove last night? Some of the funniest comedy I think I've ever seen!

    I saw what you posted that the first time.

    I just found it somewhat amusing you choose to reply to, and quote, the Dem response.....

    Re: Karl Rove - Getting Out

    I'm surprised he's leaving. I thought that out of anyone in Bush's inner circle that Rove would be the one to stay with him until the end of his term.

    Re: Karl Rove - Getting Out

    Maybe they're thinking it'll be easier for Bush to pardon him at a later point, if he's not still a member of the White House, but rather a private citizen?

    Seriously - I'm surprised too. Perhaps he has his sights on joining a new campaign? Little breather before the RNC?

    Personally, I'm glad to see him go. Right or wrong (I think right more oft than not) he's the lightning rod for trouble.

    I figure he was discussing oil revenues with fired prosecutors when he leaked the name of a CIA operative that Cheney had shot in the face with an Iraqi WMD. He's getting out before it comes to light.

    Bingo. There are no elections left for Bush.
