Breaking news in the Baltimore Sun says that Press Secretary Scott McClellan is resigning as Bush’s Press Secretary.
But I see the bigger news as the mention that Carl Rove is “giving up oversight of policy development” . The reason for the reassignment is to “focus more on politics with the approach of the fall elections”
The Washington Post says it better in it’s subheadline “Karl Rove Gives up Policy Post to Focus on 2006 Election.”
I think we here in Washington state and across the country can expect and should prepare for the worst. This ‘reassignment” is really another admission that the Republicans are worried about their prospects this fall. They are releasing their pit bull.
We can expect to see a lot more dirty politics. Don’t take my word for it. If you haven’t read either, Bush’s Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W Bush President or Boy Genius: Karl Rove, the Brains Behind the Remarkable Political Triumph of George W Bush now is a good time to do so.
Read the Reviews. Then read the books. The Republicans’ backs are against the wall and anything goes. Sort of like what we’ve been seeing , only expect more now.
