Karl Rove Resigns
With the disgraced and scandal-plagued Bush regime in tatters, what better time could Rove choose to walk? Karl Rove is resigning effective Aug. 31.
Rove gave the scoop to the far-right WSJ editorial page (the same GOP cheerleaders who so love Harold Ford).
Karl Rove, infamous for promising to build a permanent Republican majority, said in his WSJ interview that he does not intend to be involved in the 2008 presidential election. He said he wants to spend more time with his family.
A more likely story is that Karl wants to spend more time with his attorneys. The truth-challenged White House says Rove's resignation has nothing to do with investigations.
Rove suggested that Republicans will be victorious in 2008. He made a similar prediction for the 2006 election.
Skeptics who doubt that Karl Rove has an honest bone in his body point out that the timing of this resignation is perfect timing if Rove should want to spend time with the top tier non candidate who most resembles Bush. Fred Thompson is expected to announce on or around September 5th -- unless he changes his mind again.
Update: "MSNBC host Chris Matthews predicted Congressional Democrats will "have a better chance" of compelling Karl Rove to testify on his role in the firing of nine US Attorneys now that he is resigning from the White House."
