Joseph Wilson Calls on Bush to Fire Rove

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Ambassador Joseph Wilson called on President Bush Thursday to fire deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, saying Bush's top-level aide engaged in an "abuse of power" by discussing Wilson's wife's job with a reporter.

Power? What power does he have other than to advise? Hence, Deputy Chief of Staff.

Wilson, in an interview broadcast Thursday on NBC's "Today" show, said he thinks the White House's posture in this controversy represents a continuing "cover-up of the web of lies that underpin the justification for going to war in Iraq."

Just as I thought, a moron. Or STILL a moron. Depends on how you look at it.

Wilson was asked about statements by Rove's defenders noting that an e-mail describing Rove's conversation with Time reporter Matthew Cooper indicated that Rove did not specifically mention Valerie Plame by name.

WTF? How did he leak her name without saying it?

"My wife's name is Mrs. Joseph Wilson," he replied. "It is Mrs. Valerie Wilson. He named her. He identified her," Wilson said. "So that argument doesn't stand the smell test ... What I do know is that Mr. Rove is talking to the press and he is saying things like my wife is fair game. That's an outrage. That's an abuse of power."

My wife’s name is Mrs. Valerie Wilson? I did not know that until YOU told me.

Asked how he and his wife were coping with the continuing controversy, Wilson said, "We have two 5-year-old twins and they occupy most of our free time. She's obviously nonplussed at this unwanted attention brought to our family. But she's tough."

Again, the moron theory; they have TWO five-year-old TWINS... So there are FOUR?

"The president has said repeatedly, "I am a man of my word,'" Wilson added. "He should stand up and prove that his word is his bond and fire Karl Rove."

Did I miss something? When did the President say he was going to fire Karl Rove?
