From their latest story on Karl Rove's improprieties:
"President Bush subtly shifted his language yesterday about punishing anyone working for him who may have leaked the name of a CIA agent, suggesting his new standard of firing a staff member is whether a crime has been committed."
My question is how is this a subtle shift in language? It's a complete about-face, by anyone's reckoning. He originally said he'd fire him, and how he says he won't. The only change in the situation? The White House got caught with its hand in the cookie jar.
Says Bush, "I will only stand by my word if you don't discover my lies."
Too much circular logic for my taste.
