MN Lefty Liberal

So much for plain spoken and upfront (like that was EVER the case) He said he would fire anyone involved in the leak. Then he changed his mind of anyone convicted of a crime. Now it comes
out that he did indeed push forward the announcement of his Supreme Court nominee to shield Karl Rove from the CIA investigation for his involvement in the leak:

Bush accelerated his search for a Supreme Court nominee in part because of special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into the leak of a CIA agent's name, according to Republicans familiar with administration strategy.

Bush originally had planned to announce a replacement for retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on July 26 or 27, just before his planned July 28 departure for a month-long vacation at his Crawford, Texas, ranch, said two administration officials, who spoke on the condition they not be named.

The officials said those plans changed because Rove has become a focus of Fitzgerald's interest and of news accounts about the matter.

If you can’t trust your own government, who can you trust?
