As Mandrake points out, the Republicans have thier official talking points out regarding Karl Rove on Raw Story.
Here are a couple of highlights:
- “Once again, Democrats are engaging in blatent political attacks”
- “Karl Rove discouraged a reporter from writing a false story based on a false premise” (this one enrages me. Making the traitor out to be a “hero..”)
Following the bulleted list the is (practically) a dissertation that goes on, essentially, to smear Wilson.
I am sick to my stomach. Do these people have no shame? They actually think treasonous behavior is okay? The fact of the matter is that Rove leaked the name of a CIA agent to the press, revealing her identity to the public. That is a crime. Do you want to read the United States Code that specifically states that this is a crime? Here it is. Rove committed a federal crime. He needs to pay for that. The sooner the Republican party realizes this, the better we will be. Now is not the time for partisan politics. Now is the time to send to jail a dispicable, evil man who has committed a federal offense. And now is the time to investigate the Bush administration to see how involved this administration was in this affair. This is serious shit. This is not a blow job. This is treason. I, as an American Citizen, want to know how involved the President is in all of this.
Since Rove is Bush’s right hand man, it is my inclination to believe that Bush is very involved.
I swear, if Rove gets away with this, and if Bush isn’t investigated for this….we, as a nation have got to do something. I’m tired of just sitting back and writing about it. we need to take back our friggen country! It is being held hostage by criminals!

Rove: Dems Didn’t Get 9/11 Consequences – Yahoo! News
Speaking in a Manhattan ballroom just a few miles north of ground zero, Karl Rove said on Wednesday night that the Democratic party did not understand the consequences of the Sept. 11 attacks.
I am getting seething mad reading this news article. Seriously. We don’t get it? WTF? is he kidding? 9-11 was the most horrific, horrible day of my life, and I don’t even personally know anyone who died that day. I live on the other side of the Country, and it was the most horrific thing I have ever experienced. Where does he get off?
I just caught this on AmericaBlog, so I don’t know what other bloggers are saying about this at the moment. But I agree with John at AmericaBlog. Rove must resign. But he won’t, of course.
I clicked to see AmericaBlog’s homepage, and it looks like they are following this story closely. The last post says that the White House stands by Rove’s statement. Okay. Now I’m really getting pissed. What is Bush trying to do here? This is kind of freaking me out a little bit. Actually, a lot.
I just read this post at the blog, Ornicus. this is why we have to fight. I will not stand by and allow these conservative bastards to spread this hatred. Reading this post really lights a fire under me to continue the fight. I will not allow this bigotry, this utter contempt to be the norm. I will not bow down this this agenda of hate. I will never do it. These people are relentless. If you think there is going to be “bridge-building” you have another thing coming. There will certainly not be any “healing” whatsoever. There will be no attempt at trying to patch up this divide. Not when I am hearing comments from the right like:
Let’s face a hard truth: this was the bitterest Presidential campaign in living memory. The Democrats and their allies staked everything on the defeat of this President. All of the resources they had accumulated over a generation of struggle were thrown into this battle: and they have failed. Despite all of their tricks, despite all of their lies, the people have rejected them. They mean nothing. They are worth nothing. There’s no point in trying to reach out to them because they won’t be reached out to. We’ve got their teeth clutching the sidewalk and out boot above their head. Now’s the time to curb-stomp the bastards. – Adam Yoshida
No, we need to take these bastards down. All of ’em. To quote Ornicus: “heal this“
