The "Apology" drill again!

They Don't Apologize

Dan Froomkin, writing in his blog "White House Briefing" over the Washington Post moans:

"There are at least two reasons why no one should expect any apologies from Karl Rove or the White House for Rove's controversial comments Tuesday night, in which he described the liberal approach to national security as being weak and possibly even treasonous.

1) This White House doesn't apologize.

2) Why apologize when you said exactly what you meant to say?

Karl Rove didn't get George W. Bush this far just by luck. Rove has a brilliant and so far unbeatable strategy when it comes to political warfare: He doesn't defend his candidate's weaknesses, he attacks his opponent's strengths. Unapologetically.

Consider the 2004 campaign, when Rove was faced with a Vietnam problem. A war hero was running against his boss, who had opted to stay well out of harm's way. Rather than defend, Rove attacked -- and put John Kerry on the defensive."

I'll leave alone the fact that as far as I'm concerned I know about war heros, and John Kerry is no war hero.

But I digress.

Remember last year when the MSM was on the "Mr. President, is there anything you would like to apologize for?" trip. He thoroghly pissed them off when he wouldn't say, "I'm sorry." They 'crucified' him for it. Mr. Froomkin here is just trying to drive in another nail.

I guess Rove should use the "Durbin Example" of an apology (I'm sorry, wink, wink, nudge-nudge..), but for what? Here Mr. Froomkin get's it right - Rove said what he said, meant what he said, because - hold on to yourself Mr. Froomkin, but it is true.

Of course in the rest of his "briefing" Mr. Froomkin "alerts" us to all the stuff Bush is planning for the future ....ooooh, evil Bush!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
