(CNN) - Karl Rove - the former top aide to President George W. Bush - and his wife, Darby, were granted a divorce last week, family friend Dana Perino confirmed to CNN.
"The couple came to the decision mutually and amicably, and they maintain a close relationship and a strong friendship. There will be no further comment and the family requests that its privacy be respected," Perino said in an e-mail to CNN.
The two were married in 1986 and have one son.
Hasn't he spent his life decrying easy divorce and its corrosive effects on "Family Values"? I thought divorce was the easy way out for the 'Me' generation, the "instant gratification" crowd? Didn't he sit down and get counseled by his Minister and ask Jesus for guidance? Isn't that what good "Christian" Americans do? Stick with it through hard times?
Hypocrite. He even chose a slow news day to announce it. What a despicable excuse for a human being.
No surprise. How anyone could stand that pompos hypocrit.
And, if justice is ever served the man will end up in prison, so
she made a smart move.
After he helped destroy this country, he wants privacy – HA
He's old enough his wants won't hurt him.
Go after him CNN – don't let up for one minute. I smell something rotten.
How could you live much less be married to such a horribly evil, disgusting, ugly (inside & out), corrupt individual anyway? I mean really.. at what point did she realize she made the wrong choice. I do respect her for getting out with some self respect and honor.
slow day at cnn
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Maybe she will spill the dirt on him.
I'm so glad he stood up for the sanctity of marriage and was/is so strongly opposed to gay couples marrying. Instead of denying gays the legal right to marry, the government should ban divorce. If marriage is so sacred....Anyway, let's see how long it takes for Karl to hook-up with the next Mrs. Rove. Rush is on his fourth.
karl rover is a looooooosseeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!! good he doesn't deserve anything happy
All I can say is that your chickens come home to roost.
is this foxnews breaking news? or it doesn't fit into the family values image of the hypocrites.
Now that Karl is back on the prowl, it is time to raise the threat level to 'Orange' for all young women.
So much for Rove's "family values."
I guess she got tired of living with one of the most evil men in America, eh?
Yet another "family values" Right winger quitting on his family.
Here's some karma. He's requesting privacy! LOL After HE outed a CIA agent, which is TREASON, he's asking for privacy?
This man will get exactly what he deserves if the media shreds him over this.
Charity starts at home. If he can not manage his own marriage, why should anyone seek any advise from him on how to manage things!
Who could possibly find anything wrong with being married to a war criminal known as "turd blossom"? Chalk up another score for family values Repugnants.
So the turd has gone and screwed up his marriage the way he and his boss screwed up the country. I'm sure she said good riddance like the majority of the American people did.
She finally got sick of this dirtbag's lies. Way to go Darby.
How is this important? I don't care who marries or divorces, that is none of our business. I want some REAL news please!!!!
But...but...but......I thought it was gay people who were the threat to "traditional marriage". I guess when Republicans use "no-fault" divorce laws to leave their second wife like Rove just did, that should be ok...right?
Karl taught Bush to lie with a straight face, so there will always be room for him on Fox.
Another "Family Values" champion bites the dust. I wish them both good luck. Divorce is never easy. I would like to think this event will moderate Mr. Rove's views towards others' lifestyle choices.
I could use this to say horrible things about Rove, but it's really none of my business. Divorce is hard, so I wish them the best.
Maybe now we can finally stop saying one party is better than the other on "family values".
