Dumb Headline/Story of the Day

On Yahoo: Bush Passes on Public Endorsement of Rove
President Bush passed up a chance Wednesday to express confidence in senior aide Karl Rove in a political fight over a news leak that exposed a CIA officer's identity. The lack of endorsement surprised some White House officials who had been told Bush would back his embattled friend.
Perhaps they failed to notice Mr. Rove seated behind the President in his usual cabinet meeting spot? The President lets his actions speak for him. If he were about to toss Rove out, I doubt Mr. Rove would be at such a high level meeting. It is a little concept Democrats don't know about called Loyalty.
