Staying Away from the "Rove Ship"! GOP Could Learn From Titanic
Painting of Titanic Sinking
In 2003, Karl Rove participated in creating a leak from the White House about the identity of Valerie Plame, tying her to the CIA.
And now President Bush's "approval rating" is sinking!

Being concerned about what one is supposed to do in the event of a ship sinking, I found this:
The first objective is to swim (or paddle) as far as possible away from the ship before it goes under. Ships can suck people under as they sink. Once the ship has sunk, if you are able to swim or paddle back to the wreckage area, you might be able to find many useful things floating around.As one headline reported:
NEWS ANALYSISAs the great "Rove Ship" continues to go "down", the President continues to embrace his discredited advisor. Bush has made a point in recent photo-ops to show his closeness to Rove.
President unlikely to abandon Rove
Grand jury action could test special relationship to Bush
Rove and Bush departing the White House this past week
Mr. President it is time to abandon the Rove ship.
Don't hang on!
It will suck you down into the depth of political neverland.
Get onto the lifeboat!
You may survive another day.
The White House doesn't need this excitement. We don't need an Administration that allows leaks that produce that sinking confidence in our leaders!
America deserves better!
