No one has been closer to the president longer, or bailed him out of more tight spots, than Karl Rove, his chief political adviser.
I will say that if Bush decided to bite the bullett and fire Rove it would increase my opinion of the man and might even increase his popularity rating.

I can hardly wait to see where this goes. If Rove is guilty, Mr. Bush has to do something about the "brains" in this government, I would think.

Bush is a felon and that didnt stop him from becoming POTUS so I think any charges against Rove will just bring them closer together.
Karl Rove is such a traitor, what a scum bag.

I am more than willing to give Rove the presumption of innocent till proven guilty. However if he is convicted it is not merely a crime, it is a crime called TREASON. And at this point the evidence that has come out is quite damning should it prove to be factual.
Whoever, as a result of having authorized access to classified information, learns the identify of a covert agent and intentionally discloses any information identifying such covert agent to any individual not authorized to receive classified information, knowing that the information disclosed so identifies such covert agent and that the United States is taking affirmative measures to conceal such covert agent's intelligence relationship to the United States, shall be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.
The guy is guilty as sin.
and not to mention Laura Bush killed someone while driving drunk
it was proven
No, there's no evidence to suggest Alcahol was involved, but then again, Laura Welsh didn't even get a ticket for so much as "Unsafe Movement" despite the fact she was faulted in the accident, so no telling what happened eh?

One poster wrote "....Bush is a a felon." ... first time I've heard that; may I ask for what?
This is the 1976 Maine police document recording the arrest of George W. Bush for driving under the influence of alcohol. Bush, who was 30 at the time, was popped over the Labor Day weekend near his family's Kennebunkport summer home. Bush pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor DUI charge, paid a $150 fine, and had his driving privileges briefly revoked in the state of Maine. The arrest record card was released November 2 by Kennebunkport police. The Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles also released this summary of Bush's DUI conviction.
Where I come from, DUI is a felony. He recklessly endangered the lives of everyone on the road that night. If I could write laws I would class DUI as attempted manslaughter.

Well I do hate the fact that the Bush family money came from killing Americans during WWII. If that's what you mean?
That kind of do anything for money and power seems to pervade this White House (Chaney running day-day operations for the benefit of cronies) and George Bush not interested in the details.
It must be ok as long as he is assured his cut of the spoils.
I checked my taxes and I'm paying more than before and not making any more money. So Bush is a sham and he should hang his head in shame, but that has no effect on a pathological idiot. Poor Bush.
