I thought it might be interesting to look back on some Dailykos coverage of the Rove-not Rove-Cheney-Libby-Rove-not Rove-Armitage/Plame affair.
7/10/05, based on "direct" evidence Rove would be revealed as the source:
The call for Rove's resignation needs to go out now. Rove must resign.
there's mounting evidence that Novak and Rove not only lied to the FBI and grand jury, but they conspired to obstruct justice.
Libby clearly lied and he was the source of outing a CIA agent- VP Cheney gave him the info and Cheney, Rove and Libby were apprently working togather on this- Shouldn't Cheney and Rove be fired for this-shouldn't you clean house;
7/2/05, quoting a very reliable source:
MSNBC political analyst Lawrence O'Donnell claims to know the identity of the source of the Valerie Plame leak, and points the finger at Karl Rove.
This was treason, leaking DEEP CLASSIFIED INFO (I wonder if they still feel the same way now that Armitage is revealed)
It's looking like this week's revelations are going to show that Fitzgerald has enough to indict Rove for obstruction of justice
If Karl Rove is identified as the source for the Plave link, it will not come as a big surprise.
Get the champaign ready! We may very well have an indictment in time for Christmas, er Fitzmas!
Well, Karl, you broke the law.
Mr. Rove, please accept my humble apologies.
That last, from houndcat, is obviously sarcasm. Looking back on the history though, which is far to large to quote in any substance here, it seems clear that the morons at Kos do in fact owe Rove an apology. Of course, that just ensures he will never get one.
On another note, the outrage over Rove's "leaking" does not at all seem to have transfered to Armitage. The leak was only important as long as it could be used to fry Rove. Instead, they continue to cling desperately to some vague Cheney/Libby connection.
It's not politics folks, it's an obsession.
