So we've all heard that Fitz is still fumbling around but has now decided, after every Grand Jury shot him down mind you, to NOT indict Karl Rove.  

President Bush’s political adviser Karl Rove won’t be charged with any wrongdoing in connection to the investigation of the leak of a covert CIA officer’s identity, Rove's lawyer said Tuesday.

Rove learned of Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's decision on Monday after he stepped off a plane in New Hampshire where he was delivering a speech to state Republican officials.

“We believe that the special counsel's decision should put an end to the baseless speculation about Mr. Rove's conduct,” Rove attorney Robert Luskin said in a statement. "In deference to the pending case, we will not make any further public statements about the subject matter of the investigation."

Fitzgerald’s decision ends speculation into the investigation that started in 2004 that Bush could lose his longtime political aide if criminal charges came down against him.

Jason Leopold where are you?  Jason is the guy at Truth Out who stated emphatically that Rove WILL be indicted.  It appears they are in denial: (via TPM Muckraker)

But — the one publication to report, repeatedly, that Rove was definitely going to be indicted — isn't buying it.

I reached Truthout editor Marc Ash on his cel phone this morning. "I wasn't aware that he had said that," he said of Luskin's announcement, but insisted that Truthout was "absolutely" standing by its earlier reporting.

"We've done a lot of work on this story, we've talked to a lot of people," he said, "and some of the people who provided information for the story are absolutely in a position to know."

So if Truthout's reporting — by correspondent Jason Leopold — is correct, is Ruskin lying? "Robert Luskin's allegations are in the best interest of his client, not necessarily the press," Ash said. "I think that the information he is providing is directly contradicted by the information we have."

These guys will be part of the tin foil hat brigade until the bitter end. 

Fitz has spent millions and two years in a witchhunt against the Bush administration and all he has to show for it is a petty perjury charge against Libby which will NEVER see the light of day in a courtroom.  Fitz is a bumbling partisan hack who will have to come to grips with the fact that he has lost.  There is nothing to this "leak".  Never has been and never will be.

“The fact is this, I thought it was wrong when you had people like Howard Dean and (Sen.) Harry Reid presuming that he was guilty,” Republican Party Chairman Ken Mehlman told FOX News.

“This is an enormous burden lifted off his shoulders. He always believed that he was totally innocent and that nothing would happen,” former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich said of Rove.

Gingrich added that Rove’s situation shows that something is wrong with the current legal system.

“There’s something wrong when your entire life can be under this kind of threat for two full years, you spend lots and lots of money on lawyers, lots of time going to the grand jury and there’s nothing there,” Gingrich said.

Here is Ken Mehlman statement:

Par for the course with the left.  Assume your guilty prior to innocence.  They are doing in Haditha, they have done it in the Plame case.  It's called wishful thinking. 

Of course the left is getting a bit upset and engaging in a some wishful thinking judging by some of the comments coming from the DummiesU alumni:

  • I wonder if Rover gave up Cheney to get off—not a bad proposition, IMO
  • The Grinch stole Fitzmas! So the greased pig slipped out of Fitgerald's grasp and I am pissed off. That fat bastard should be slow roasting with a rotten apple in his mouth for treason against America. What happened? Did KKKarl have a get out of jail free card or did Fitz just blow it? I am so disillusioned by this country. We only have a sense of freedom, democracy is crumbling, and justice is a whore to the rich!

Here is a DummiesU alumni with a bit of common sense:

  • DailyMuck : Truthout stands by its story!!!! Yeah, Marc. Might as well stick by your story. You're as fucked as you could possibly be.

    We have to demand accountability. TruthOut needs to shut down. It's the only way to resolve this

But just one of the few, most are so filled with hatred they cannot contain themselves:

  • The fix is in.
  • IOKIYAR — These motherf*ckers get away with anything, don't they?
    IOKIYAR = It's OK If You Are Republican

    If only a Clinton adviser had done half of what Rove did, the Republicans wouldn't have stopped until the guy had gotten the chair. They would have instituted special prosecutors and gone relentlessly all the way until indictments were handed, no matter what.

    Heck, these bastards shoot old people in the face, and then their victims have to apologize to them.

  • I'm so disappointed – when I heard it on NPR I just said "Fuck!" and turned off the radio.
  • My Heart Is Broken, My Spirit Crushed, My Faith in America Destroyed
    On the other hand, I am sure that there are numerous other criminal enterprises that Kkkarl has participated in, so we just have to keep digging. Perhaps Fitz is doing just that–he has the license to do so.

    Or am I approaching the definition of insanity, here?

  • "someone probably intervened"—yeah, like all of BushCo, Inc. & their BigOil buddies with deep, deep pockets.

Take a look at this guy who finds boogiemen everywhere:

  • Libby is neither from one of the billionaire families nor friends with such

    a family. Unlike the Bush’s, Libby is fair game.

    When I entered the structured investment game in New York in 1997 I was amazed at how many “folks” could cut a $5 billion dollar check as a third party to a given deal. The money is all hidden – and I am sure even more money is hidden now. The checks were not corporate checks – indeed there were no checks and no trail – money just moved. “Families” have the money under the control of an individual – it truly was a different world from mine.

More wishful thinking:

  • This could definitely be tied to a deal between Fitz and Rove to get Cheney.
  • But mostly just the shrill cries and moans from the schizophrenic:

  • Bush Crime Family wins again, It must make you proud.
  • This is what it must feel like to get a 500 lb. bomb dropped on you. I was so hoping that Leopold was correct. Why, why, why!!! We need to get these bastards and soon.
  • One cannot think clearly while dwelling on tragedy.

    We need all the clear thinking we can find, right now.

    I’m getting off it as fast as I can. This evil empire has to be destroyed; Ameryca and the world depend on it.

    The wishful tool that was just removed from the board reveals the vile rotten ness is even deeper and nastier than we had hoped.

Here is someone who is coming to grips with reality….slowly:

  • I’m beginning to think *NOTHING* important will come out of Fitz’s investigation

The left better up their dosage of psych meds today or it's going to get bad.


I can’t help myself. The posting at DummiesU is just too good to pass up. This one takes the cake:

  • I can’t help thinking back to the whole Rather-documents thing. We all know that Bush skipped out in Vietnam and got special treatment as a rich kid. But they question one document, and the press jumps all over it. That one document was never even proven as a forgery, and there was a lot more than one document. But the average Joe on the street hears about Bush skipping out on Vietnam, and he thinks “Oh that was all faked. That was a forged document.” And they got away with that. Hide the truth behind a little lie.

What reality do these people live in?



What do the Wilson’s have to say? Just a “there will be a reckoning” kind of statement:

Statement of Christopher Wolf, Proskauer Rose LLP, Counsel for Ambassador Joseph Wilson and Valerie Plame Wilson

“We have become aware of the communication between Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr. Luskin concerning Karl. Rove’s status in the criminal investigation. We have no first-hand knowledge of the reason for the communication or what further developments in the criminal investigation it may signal. While it appears that Mr. Rove will not be called to answer in criminal court for his participation in the wrongful disclosure of Valerie Wilson’s classified employment status at the CIA in retaliation against Joe Wilson for questioning the rationale for war in Iraq, that obviously does not end the matter. The day still may come when Mr. Rove and others are called to account in a court of law for their attacks on the Wilsons.”

THE DAY WILL COME….you hear me? You are doomed! Doomed I say!


Another winner from DummiesU:

  • Having seen “Bush’s Brain” I knew he’d get out of it, he is evil to the core and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.



Someone stop me, I cant help myself…more from DummiesU:

  • Was it a letter, a phone call, a fax or all of the above?

    The last one? A freaking FAX????

    That falls under the “not believable” category for official communication. Luskin might be able to trace the origin of the fax back to Tony Snow’s computer. Just sayin…

Yes, now it’s a one big conspiracy because no one knows if the notice came in the form of a call, letter or fax…

One big conspiracy I tell you!

  • Fitzgerald is a complete distraction.

    A real prosecutor assigned to the Bush regime would have nailed them instantly for their six-year-plus violation of the Presidential Records Act, an act of Congress (therefore superior to any executive order) under which the Reagan White House records should have been released in 2001. Open and shut case. Let the Supreme Court rule otherwise.

    A real prosecutor would march up with writs for Zakheim and Rumsfeld and demand an independent review of the audit that found the Pentagon could not account for 2.3 trillion dollars (sic) in assets.

    A real 9/11 investigation would have caused the resignation of the whole crew and indictments at the least for criminal negligence of the top civilian and miltary echelons.

    A magistrate with courage would go after them for violating constitutional rights of the citizens (“enemy combatant”) and using and condoning torture around the world.

    A real prosecutor could have bagged the Office of Special Plans and the White House Iraq Group for conspiracy to mislead the public and launch a war of aggression (worst crime on the Nuremberg charges) long ago.

Man, that Bushitler is evil huh?


At least one of them has a sense of humor:

  • My Source: TO story is a part of the vast alien cover-up.

    I have a secret source who says this is hard evidence of the conspiracy. You see the trip President Bush took to Iraq wasn’t really about meeting the new PM, but it was about meeting these aliens from another planet. These are the aliens who keep stealing my socks all the time. (You probably know them.)

    Anyway back to the story. It appears Mr. Rove is an alien.

    See Mr. Rove couldn’t be indicted because he was an alien. Fitz didn’t know this, so he did the investigation, he even indicted Rove, just like TO said, but then he found out he had come to close to “the cover-up.”


Via Mike’s America come’s this poem:

As lefties were huddled all cold in their beds, there came over the left a feeling of dread. As Fitzgerald rose, lefties bolted and woke. There would be “NO INDICTMENT OF ROVE” were the words ole Fitz spoke.

And as the news spread, one thing became clear: lefties knew now for sure: No FITZMAS THIS YEAR!
