Editor, the Tribune:
From a few reports, I have heard Karl Rove is the one who is mentioned in the Time magazine reporters notes. If he is the one who retaliated against the CIA agent by leaking her name to the press, he should be immediately fired, arrested and prosecuted.
Where is the outraged press? The press and the Republican Party repeatedly attacked and prosecuted former President Bill Clinton for lying about a consensual sex act that had no direct effect on any American, and yet the Bush administration lied to all of Americans about the reason for the Iraq war. This lie has cost Americans more than $150 billion of our tax dollars and over 1,500 American lives and counting.
We know Rove has been in charge of the dirty politics and smear campaigns against Bushs opponents for many years, dating back to the Texas election in which he smeared Anne Richards. He smeared Sen. John McCain and his family in the South Carolina primary. He was in charge when his party attacked John Kerry, who is an American war hero! Where is the outrage?
Now we hear he has illegally leaked information to Robert Novak, a reporter for the right-wing agenda, about the wife of a former U.S. ambassador, Joseph Wilson. Wilson questioned the Bush case for the war against Iraq, and Rove retaliated by telling the press that Wilsons wife was an undercover CIA agent, therefore jeopardizing her safety and future career. Where is the outraged press?
Bush wins another round.....
"Bring it On!"
My, my. Doesn't this writer have his panties in a knot?
Amazing, just amazing the level of ignorance.
The press and the Republican Party repeatedly attacked and prosecuted former President Bill Clinton for lying about a consensual sex act that had no direct effect on any American,
and we have been paying the price in the incidences of sexual diseases and misconduct ever since with kids and young adults. Some shining example that Bubba IS... !!!
John who served in the military? When, Where?
Are you even near reality?
Where is the gag alert?
Where is the outraged press?
Where in the h ll has this guy been?
Restated: I have not done my own research into the matter of Karl Rove....
I'm from Columbia and you can't take anything serious written in this rag. They can't even give the paper away anymore.
And if Rove killed JFK he should be prosecuted for that.. what about presumption of innocence? What about balance? What about the they NY Time and Time Magazine have had the stories for two years and can't make anything out of it and YET still every day there 10 new stories. Meanwhile President Bush today is at a black expo in Indiana - arranged last year by Rove - where he stands to gain little and isn't running for anything - he is there on principle to reach out and help people and that barely gets any press. That is really sad.
This is rehashing the same tripe we've heard all along. I guess they think that if they tell the lie often enough, it stops being a lie. Silly sods.
I love the way the writer starts,I HAVE HEARD.
Yup got a purple heart...got shot in the bum with rice...that takes talent.
Scanning newspapers around the country today, it is obvious that the MoveOn minions have been given their orders to write Rove letters, and given the text to paste into them.
