Skip to comments.Kristol: ‘Mood is Bleak’ at White House (uh-huh)

Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, said he expects indictments this week in the CIA leak case involving White House advisers Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.
Kristol said "the mood is bleak in the White House today, and said the environment surrounding the federal grand jury testimony is "pretty grim. Although the indictments may not ultimately result in anything substantive, Kristol said there is a pins-and-needles feel to the grand jury investigation into the leaking of a CIA agent's name to the media in 2003.
"The net has been cast wide, Kristol told Fox News Tuesday. "Lots of junior aides have testified. Its been a very comprehensive investigation by the prosecutor. I think there will be indictments and the mood is pretty bleak in the White House.
As for what this means for President Bush and the daily working of the White House, Kristol said it is too early to tell.
"The White House has to ask, How do we segregate this? This is a problem, but the legal system has to run its course.
"Meanwhile, Kristol said, "the president has to take the initiative on foreign policy and economic policy and sort of set this aside.
Kristol's simply beating the newest Dem Strategy Drum as reported minutes ago in the Am. Spect. re: The Whitehouse is in the Tank for '06... more "wishful thinking " by the hopelessly lost Dem so-called strategists.
I must admit this is getting better almost daily. Three years ago, when Kristol and his buddies were advocating the police action in Iraq, they could do no wrong. Now the same men who cheered for the administration dare to question it and they're thrown under the bus with namecalling.
Makes no difference to me, never liked Kristol and the cheerleaders. I just find it amusing
Oh yeah, Kristol has great WH sources. He's one of their biggest friends, trusted by all, unquestionable loyalty. Sheesh....
That's where my money's on.
I thought homo's were suppose to be gay?
Sounds like a fishing expedition to me. I think the prosecutor is trying to find something, somewhere, but has come up empty. If he had anything, there would be focused testimony. I think no indictments are forthcoming.

As for Bill Kristol, see my tag line.
I would prefer he hold it...there's enough hot air from his direction.
Wasn't there a story about Regan that when the liberals were all mad that his comment was: "I wonder what is bothering them?"
Are you confusing Kristol with Andrew Sullivan?
Now they are tossing Hannah's name into the mix . . . who next? Every day they have a new suspect; makes me think they know nothing.
The Weekly Standard has some writers I admire. Kristol isn't one of them.
My dead dog is more welcome in the White House than the perfumed prancing prince Ballless Krystal. My dog died 15 years ago.
This sounds like the wet dreams that the gay writers for the NY/LA Slimes put out about GW for 5 years.
Krystal would be lucky to have the White House Rotor Rooter guy share his opionions with this worthless POS.
Bill Kristol was anything but universally admired on this website. To suggest the he "could do no wrong" is a stretch.
