On Saturday, he was cozying up over hot dogs and french fries with French President Nicholas Sarkozy, and Monday morning the news dropped that Karl Rove, the man behind George W. Bush’s throne, is leaving the White House!!!
Rove is universally regarded as the guy who has been String-Puller Numero Uno. Certainly, no one would deny that our country would not be where it is today without Karl Rove?
And for that there ought to be a spot in a federal penitentiary with his name on it, eh?
Ah, but he departs in his inimitable style, giving the Democrat most likely to replace Mr. Bush a swift kick between the legs in his Wall Street Journal farewell.
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rove predicted, would be the Democratic nominee, and he then called her a “tough, tenacious, fatally flawed candidate.”
But let's leave Hillary alone for a second and keep the light shining on you and yours.
The Bush Boys, you and yours, have lost the confidence and basic trust of the American people and deservedly so. There's no doubt about it. Obviously, your departure is designed to get the heat off the Bush White House and the Bush Administration and some how. some way, save a few Republican congressional seats in November 2008.
The question is, will it?
