Today’s question is President George W. Bush.
LP: Mr. President, in two separate instances in autumn of 2003 you and your spokesman, Scott McLellan, made clear that if whoever leaked the name of Valerie Plame to the press worked at the White House, that person would be fired. Since we abhor those who would give aid and comfort to America’s enemies, we wholeheartedly applaud that unqualified support for our intelligence community. Now that it has become clear that the leak was in fact your right-hand man (or, in the snarky view of some administration critics, your immediate superior) Karl Rove, when can we expect you to act on your promise and your obligation to those who risk their lives in service to our great nation? In the event you decide not to honor your word, can you give us some idea what your next spectacular breach of trust with the nation will be so we can get started with our background research?
