The Politico's Jim VandeHei reacts to Rove's resignation.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Karl Rove said Monday his resignation as President Bush's senior political adviser was not forced and that he plans to spend his post-White House career writing a book and teaching.
Perhaps Bush's most powerful White House aide, Rove submitted his resignation to Bush on Friday, he told CNN's Suzanne Malveaux in an e-mail.
When asked for his reaction to those who say he's being "run out of town," Rove responded, "That sounds like the rooster claiming to have called up the sun."
It's about time. Rove should have gone along time ago!
Good God! Teaching WHAT???? I can think of only one University that could stomach him.
Oh, darn – and he was doing such a swell job, too. Who's going to secretly run the country now?
How convenient that he gets out after screwing over the country but before he can be held accountable for it.
Hallelujah! Guess he didn't want to end up like Scooter – he just looks like a crook. Maybe he and Cheney should start a new company called "Birds of a Feather" and sell secrets to the Middle East. Good riddance.
Rove will probably, if he hasn't already be living in a Summer Home close to Crawford Texas where Bush can keep an eye on him.
His book will likely be titled:
My Years in the White House as the
Senior Spin Doctor.
Hopefully Americans won't add to his personal savings account and honour his disservice by purchasing a copy!
how can he teach, he never graduated from any of the five colleges he attended.
The Republican party caters to the wealthy and manipulates the ignorant, that is Karl Roves' legacy.
