President Bush on Thursday acknowledged publicly for the first time that someone in his administration likely leaked the name of a CIA operative, although he also said he hopes the controversy over his decision to spare prison for a former White House aide has "run its course."
"And now we're going to move on," Bush said in a White House news conference.
Right..we will forget it and move on..sweet Jesus on a Ritz..wtf? Pardon me dude but thats a heavy-duty admission coming out of your lying ass. Oh, then there is this:
Bush would not directly address answer a question about whether he is disappointed in the White House officials who leaked Plame's name.
"I'm aware of the fact that perhaps somebody in the administration did disclose the name of that person," Bush said. "I've often thought about what would have happened if that person had come forth and said, 'I did it.' Would we have had this endless hours of investigation and a lot of money being spent on this matter? But, so, it's been a tough issue for a lot of people in the White House. It's run its course and now we're going to move on."
Yep, he saved the ass of his pals and sorry bout your luck Valerie Plame but there are other more important things than keeping our governments secrets in the name of political gain to address.
He then prattled on about Scooters upcoming pardon by saying: "As to the future, I rule nothing in and nothing out,"Oh no kidding. This is a shocker. And he says it all with a straight face. The stench of arrogance had to be strong in that room, I am telling you.
And that my dear reader is your BushCo moment for today.
