When Karl Rove left his job at the White House in August 2007, he told the Washington Post, “I’m leaving on my own terms.” But a new book by former Time magazine reporter Paul Alexander claims that Bush actually fired Rove, telling him “It’s time for you to go” during the summer of 2007:

Bush accompanied Karl Rove to the Episcopalian Church Rove sometimes attended,” writes Alexander. “They made their way to the front of the congregation. Then, during their time in the church, Bush gave Rove some stunning news. ‘Karl,’ Bush said, ‘there’s too much heat on you. It’s time for you to go.’”
