Apparently, my wife has a creme brule addiction. I don’t think she’d mine me sharing that information, but using Karl Rove and Karl Rove’s attorney Robert Luskin’s language, I could insinuate to my wife that I had not done so by stating that I didn’t use her name.
Compare that to:
Bush ignores question on Rove: “[Time’s Matt Cooper] had spoken to Rove, who described the wife of former U.S. Ambassador and Bush administration critic Joe Wilson as someone who ‘apparently works” at the CIA, Newsweek magazine reported.”
What’s the difference between “Joe Wilson’s Wife” and “Valerie Plame?” Very shaky ground to stand on if you’re Karl Rove.
Sadly, our president has offered little to know help straightening out this leak from within his owe staff. Joshua Micah Marshall explains George W Bush’s shortfallings below:
Talking Points Memo – July 11, 2005″ . . . the president has known about this as long as the rest of us — that is, almost exactly two years.
And he — unlike anyone else in the country — had the power to call Rove into his office and ask him whether he did this or knew who did?”
Bush’s inability to deal with bad news coming from his own staff or the War in Iraq is damaging our country.
