Despite what you may personally think of President Bush and his mental facilities, never delude yourself into thinking he is not a shrewed politician. When this thing with the CIA agent first broke he and his spokespeople were very clear in stating that if anyone in the administration released the name of a CIA agent they would be fired. Rove didn’t say her name, and you can’t tell me that Bush didn’t know about his involvement when this all first started. Now? He’s stating that if someone committed a crime they would be fired.
Rove didn’t actually say her name, and from what I’ve heard the special prosecutor isn’t planning on pressing charges.
Thus, Rove isn’t going anywhere and Bush is going to continue doing whatever the hell he wants with a self righteous smirk on his face.
