QUESTION: Are there discussions in the White House about whether or not Karl Rove will remain in his job?

BUSH: Elizabeth, the investigation on Karl as you know is not complete and therefore I will not comment on him and/or the investigation. I understand the anxiety and angst by the press corps to talk about this. On the other hand, It’s a serious investigation, and we take it seriously.

Think Progress has more.

For those who think Rove is free and clear-guess again. Also, Bush dodged his bad poll numbers by saying:

"The way you earn credibility with the American people is to set a clear agenda that everybody can understand, an agenda that relates to their lives, and get the job done," he said. "And the agenda that I'm working on now is one that is important to the American people."

Obviously-the American people don't seem to be with you on this Mr. President.
