Harry Reid Says Rove Should Resign Sunday, October 30, 2005

Senator Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) called for presidential aide Karl Rove to resign today because of his connections in the Valerie Plame controversy. Scooter Libby was indicted and subsequently resigned on Friday and the whole thing is still ongoing. Rover is still under investigation.

The Washington Post covered the shake down on Sunday morning news programs today and Reid was one of several calling for some major changes in the administration. While no one has called for the resignation of Vice President Dick Cheney, it's go to be in people's minds. Right now, the scandals are paralyzing the administration and Bush needs to surprise everyone and not only take charge of his administration but to also actually exercise intellectual capacity, which seems a stretch for him, to get our country going in a direction. Right now, we're caught in a malestrom and he's going to take us down.

"I think Karl Rove should step down," Reid said about the White House deputy chief of staff. "Here is a man who the president said if he was involved, if anyone in the administration was involved, out they would go. Anybody who is involved in this, they're gone."


Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.), speaking on "Fox News Sunday," urged the president to make changes in his staff but did not explicitly call for the dismissal of Rove. He said the president's chief strategist should decide for himself if he is a distraction to the administration.

But Lott said Bush "should always be looking for new blood, new energy. I'm not talking about wholesale changes, but you ought to reach out."

Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.), speaking on the same show, said he agreed that Bush should shake up his staff "but that's really the president's call."

Bush needs to get real because while I'm a Democrat, I also hate seeing our country flounder like this and it has been for four+ years now. He's wrecking things and he needs to get rid of Cheney and follow the line down.
