Bush Doesn’t Have to Wait

After a cabinet meeting on yesterday, President Bush was asked a question about Karl Rove:

Q Can I ask you if you have spoken with your Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove about the Valerie Plame matter? And do you think he acted improperly in talking about it with reporters?

THE PRESIDENT: Mark, I have instructed every member of my staff to fully cooperate in this investigation. I also will not prejudge the investigation based on media reports.

This makes absolutely no sense. Bush doesn’t need to rely on media reports. He could get this information immediately. Rove is one of his closest advisors and Bush could ask him exactly what happened.


Maybe in this case, ignorance is bliss.
