Rove abandons ship
Guess he’s getting out as the Titanic he set sail is pointing nose first and sinking fast. I doubt he’ll get off his Crackberry addiction — trust me, he’ll always be on speed dial to Bush. (AP):
“Obviously it’s a big loss to us,” White House deputy press secretary Dana Perino said. “He’s a great colleague, a good friend, and a brilliant mind. He will be greatly missed, but we know he wouldn’t be going if he wasn’t sure this was the right time to be giving more to his family, his wife Darby and their son. He will continue to be one of the president’s greatest friends.”
…”I just think it’s time,” Rove said in an interview at this home on Saturday. He first floated the idea of leaving to Bush a year ago, the newspaper said, and friends confirmed he’d been talking about it even earlier. However, he said he didn’t want to depart right after the Democrats regained control of Congress and then got drawn into policy battles over the Iraq war and immigration.
The interview was in the Wall Street Journal.
He plans to write a book — will there be even a nugget of “truth” in it?
