Washington Post - "The emerging GOP strategy -- devised by Mehlman and other Rove loyalists outside of the White House -- is to try to undermine those Democrats calling for Rove's ouster, play down Rove's role and wait for President Bush's forthcoming Supreme Court selection to drown out the controversy, according to several high-level Republicans."
Karl Rove endangered an American agent's life for a political smear.
And the scummy GOP not only DEFENDS an act of possible treason, the ONLY thing that they care about is the POLITICAL side of it.
A guy who compromised national security and leaked confidential intelligence is in the White house, with access to the President, and free access to OTHER confidential intelligence.
And the Republicans response to this is to smear the opposition, and hope that some OTHER story will deflect attention away from it.
These people care not at ALL about America.
ALL that they care about is their political party.
