Rove carefully orchestrating his own demise!
Knowing he is either guilty of leaking, leading a conspiracy to leap, and masterminding a cover-up, not to mention perjury in the Plame case, or that he will be so damaged that he'll have to leave the administration, Rove is masterfully manipulating the story to do as little political damage as possible and to stay on as long as possible. Getting Roberts on the front-burner as fast as he and W. did was a way to bury the story for a time. Unless other facts, memos, leaks about leaking come forward, the story won't re-emerge until the prosecutor's indictments or report. The Friday before that action, Rove can quietly clean out his drawers before the afternoon announcement.

Ironically, the methods that brought him to fame, too injudiciously applied brought him down. Now he uses them to prolong and fashion his departure.

What can change this? Little, it seems, without new facts coming to light.

What do you think?

1. "Without new facts coming to light"
Rove doesn't even know what Fitzgerald has. Stay tuned.. I have a feeling he will have an encyclopedia of "new facts" very soon that will obliterate Rove as well as BushCo in general.

2. That's the question. . . How soon? Or, we could ask, how long does Rove
have until the end. Is he simply trying to mute the entire, or does he has a bigger "fish up his sleeve," like Iran?

5. This is just my opinion and Lord knows I don't know what I'm
talking half the time, but I think that if they pre-emptively attack Iran, they will be total toast. The polls show Americans are getting weary of the war in Iraq and certainly Afghanistan, then they attack Iran? I really don't think so.

6. Yeah, I know. I just can't imagine a world so fine in which they would
be playing for time simply and fatalistically.

I'm concerned that a BFEE "representative" pays a visit to Fitzgerald and informs him of the health risks he's subjecting his immediate family to by continuing to pursue this Plame investigation.

If Fitz does an about face you can guarentee something like this has happened.

4. Don't know about his parents and siblings,
but according to the article about him to which several DU threads have linked, he's not married and doesn't have any kids.
