Latest Karl Rove Items
As I sat by my window and staring out at the wonderful Washington, D.C., landscape, my office announced a phone call from Air Force One.
White House press secretary Tony Snow yesterday said he will leave the Bush administration before the end of the president's term, joining a long — and growing — list of top officials streaming out of the White House.
President Bush has just lost his right-hand man, but he's about to gain a son.
Soon after his arrival in Washington with the newly minted President Bush, I joked with Karl Rove, "Don't worry about buying silverware for your house. Just turn your back in this town and a whole new cutlery set will be plunged into it."
It is indicative of the bias that gusts through our media that when the most successful political strategist in memory, Karl Rove, retires from his powerful position in the Bush White House, the press reports his departure tsk-tskingly. Somehow Mr. Rove's departure must suggest his failure and disgrace. Or as some nitwit anchoring the midday CNN news broadcast, "Your World Today," put it when I was walking past a television monitor, "Does that mean the Bush administration is essentially over?" And we are told the Fox News is biased. What about stupid?
What? Karl Rove leaving the George Bush White House? I read the words; I can't digest them. Going home to Texas to write a book and, not only that, leaving politics altogether? So he announces. We'll see.
