Rove plays hooky

Karl Rove decided to skip the latest liberal photo-op being held by the Senate Judiciary Committee, and rightly so. Dems accuse him of hiding behind executive privilege, but there is a fair amount of precedent for refusing to testify on such grounds, with both Republican and Democrat administrations falling back on it in times of trouble.

The fact is Democrats foam at the mouth at any opportunity to put Rove on television in a compromising position. They have failed at every turn to let the public see him sweat, but their taste for blood did not go unquenched, as a 29-year-old White House aide did appear before Sen. Patrick Leahy’s mob of pitchfork-wielding townsfolk, also known as the Judiciary Committee.

For all the talk about “getting to the bottom” of…something…the Dems don’t seem to be making much headway. But true witch hunts never do. The list of conspirators will grow, as will the accusations, and before too long, we’ll have forgotten how this whole thing started in the first place. Oh, wait, was it because Bush was reelected in 2004? Or does it have something to do with the Dems winning Congress in 2006? I can never tell.

  • This issue is about dishonesty in todays administration. Why reference “witch hunt”? Why are you too not seeking the truth in government? Do party politics weigh that heavily on ones ability to seek a properly run administration,of the people and for whom????

  • Tou are starting to sound paranoid and desperate.

  • 1. Witch hunt because the Democrats are calling on everyone they can possibly find to collect a massive pile of transcripts to which they can point and say that the administration was playing politics in the firing of federal prosecutors.

    2. Truth in government is found by people outside it, not one or the other political party. Democrats aren’t looking for truth – they’re looking to nail the president. Period.

    3. Your last question is all over the place, but I will say this: federal prosecutors serve at the pleasure of the president of the United States. If he decides to fire one, a few, or all of them (as Bill Clinton did), that’s his perogative. Why did this all the sudden become a problem? Because the Democrats found a way to get some leverage over on the administration.

    I’m not paranoid nor desperate. That’s a job for liberals.
    Cheers!
