Rove is still calling the shots
Appearing on "Your World with Neil Cavuto" [Fox News] on Friday (March 10, 2006), Kristol lamented the loss of the deal by which Dubai Ports World purchased the contract for operating the ports from a British corporation, P&O.
Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, said he thought Bush could have won over Congressional Republicans to the matter if he had been around to fight the issue. But instead, he issued the veto threat and then went overseas to India and Pakistan for two weeks, allowing opposition to grow unchecked, Kristol said.
"Karl Rove calls the people in Dubai two nights ago and tells them pull the plug on the deal, and I think as a result, the president looks weak, frankly," Kristol said.
rove should be trying to talk satan out of calling in the marker on his soul but, instead, he's still doing his dastardly best to stay in control of bush, just like he has been for the past 30+ years...
supposedly, some senior r's in memphis this weekend are floating the notion that bush might want to dump he-who-must-not-be-
named... the chances of that happening...?
Some senior Republicans with ties to the White House, who asked for anonymity because they did not want to be identified describing internal White House deliberations, said there was a widespread feeling here that Mr. Bush would be well served to bring in new advisers, either replacing Andrew H. Card Jr., his chief of staff, or Karl Rove, his senior political adviser.
But one Republican with close ties to the White House said the investigation of Mr. Rove's role in leaking the name of a C.I.A. operative was making it nearly impossible to make any changes until it was resolved.
