As you know, I’ve always liked him and think he has this country’s interests at heart. Even when I disagree with him.
Captain Ed todays suggests reading the Rush interview with Rove. I loved this:
RUSH: … You’ve been the brunt of all kinds of assaults and attacks, personally and otherwise, along with the president. How do you guys deal with it?
KARL ROVE: Rush, you ignore it. I mean, if you have to wake up in the morning to be validated by the editorial page of the New York Times, you got a pretty sorry existence. So the best thing you could do is just ignore it, plow on, stay focused. The president is very good about saying, “Look, we came here for a reason. We have an obligation on the country,” and press on by it. I’ll be hyperventilating about the latest attack on him by somebody, and he’ll say, “Don’t worry. History will get it right and we’ll both be dead.” So it’s a good, healthy attitude about how to take it.
History will get it right and we’ll both be dead. LOL. You go Mr. President.
And then in today’s Washington Post Michael Fletcher’s story about how Rumsfield was going just BEFORE the last election and if only, if only……….
The President made the choice to not try to play the political game with Rumsfield’s resignation and not being a politico, I’m not sure it was the best choice politically, but humanly, I admire him.
“I know that one of the things that the president wanted to avoid was the appearance of trying to make this a political decision,” she said.[Dana Perino] “And that was very important to him, and I think that the American people can appreciate not playing politics with such an important decision.”
