Really, Karl, a year ago would have been okay.

UPDATE:  Bill Plante with CBS had a parting question for the president regarding Rove’s tenure. 

Too bad we didn’t get to hear the response to that.  I suspect it was under his breath.

UPDATE:  Jim Treacher at The Daily Gut asks a question on many of our minds.  And, the answer is…and the answer is…

Oh, well.  I suppose we will find out soon enough.  Won’t we?

For now, say goodbye to M.C. Rove, as he rides off into the sunset.

UPDATE:   Is there any truth to the rumor that Rove may be jumping ship to the Thompson non-campaign campaign or an officially announced campaign?  Surely not, with the way Rove has been polling.  And, we all know how campaigns are about poll numbers.

Karl Rove, White House Deputy Chief of Staff and President Bush’s longtime political advisor, has decided to step down

Karl Rove, President Bush’s close friend and chief political strategist, plans to leave the White House at the end of August, joining a lengthening line of senior officials heading for the exits in the final 1 1/2 years of the administration.

A longtime member of Bush’s inner circle, Rove was nicknamed “the architect” by the president for designing the strategy that twice won him the White House.

A criminal investigation put Rove under scrutiny for months during the investigation into the leak of a CIA operative’s name but he was never charged with any crime.

Bush was expected to make a statement Monday with Rove.   more…

I’m with Rove, “I just think it’s time.”  Of course, a year ago, when he first started thinking about it, wouldn’t have been too bad either.

Michelle Malkin has more on it here, outlining some of Rove’s “legacy“.
