Rove Resigns

I awoke this morning to the news that Carl Rove will leave Washington on Aug. 31. Most Bush opponents will be saying about time. He, Rove, says he is leaving to spend more time with his family. This is the political cop-out the politicos use to avoid the real reason they are leaving. I mean come on did he just realize he has a family. I do not buy it. Is it because of the subpeonas that are dogging him? well, that does not wash, he will still have to deal with them whether he is in Washington or some jerk water town in Texas.

I see acouple of things as intersting in this resignation. The deal of 'executive priviledge' will be tested in court no doubt. And the biggie here is Cheney. Dick will probably become the focal point of the Democrats ire. While Rove will not be out of the woods completely, but Cheney will be there and confrontational and a magnet of opposition. I forsee the Democrats loading up for a showdown with Cheney and Bush. Will it be successful? Probably not, for the Dems are still wimps, after all is said and done.

Also the reason for Rove leaving, IMO, is there is no election he can direct. Since the re-election of Bush, he has been on the hotseat with the Dems. Plus, he smells the millions of dollars that await him in the private sector. I think that is more of a motivator than the family BS.

Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Hey Hey GOODBYE!

IMO, he will not be gone for too long. He will rest up and find a new dummie to run his hand up his butt and dictate policy.
