I seriously would not be surprised is Mr. Rove left the White House today to go work on Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
Mitt Romney won Saturday, 11th of August. Karl Rove resigns from the White House on Monday, 13th of August. For most of us, the Iowa straw poll does not mean anything. So why have it in the first place? To waste more taxpayer money? That is possible. Our government loves wasting our money. Giving 30 billion dollars to Israel, and spending over a billion dollars on a U.S. embassy in Iraq is evidence of our government wasting money that could better be spent on education, health care, our soldiers, flood & hurricane survivors.
But Karl Rove resigning the first week day after the Iowa Republican straw poll was more than coincidence. Of course, I am just theorizing here. For me, the timing is far too suspicious.
