I don't give a shit if they fire Karl Rove

I've seen a lot of people demanding that Karl Rove get fired, which they probably should be since the White House made it pretty clear (you know, back when they were still commenting on it) that they would fire anyone involved in leaking this information. But personally, I don't care if they fire him or not. Of course, he should be fired, based on what he did and especially considering the statements from the White House about it in the past, but everyday that goes by that they try to ignore this, now, after one of their own has been implicated (as opposed to their big talk before), just goes to show that Bush cares more about being loyal to his buddies than he does in either upholding the law, upholding his own personal integrity and that of his administration, and in being accountable to the American people. An I think the more people that get to recognize that that is the case, the better. I'm not worried that we have someone like Karl Rove continuing to work at such a high level and that that compromises our security, because I think this entire administration does that regardless of whether he is a part of it or not. If Rove was gone, they would simply get someone else to do whatever it is he might do. So, I hope they do stick by him, because honestly, this story isn't about a failure of Karl Rove, it's a about a failure of this administration as a whole, and I think they all need to pay the price for it.

I wouldn't mind seeing Karl go, but not until his actions get tied to the whole administration, and I posted as much this morning.

Is this a case of great minds thinking alike, or small ones seldom differing?

Well, I know my mind is great, so we'll just go with that one.

I don't care if he gets fired, he needs to be prosecuted, what he did was a crime.

If Rove goes down, the Bush administration suffers a huge defeat. That's enough for me.

Ha ha...John...I can't believe that you used integrity in the same sentence with Bush!
