Poor Bush: Out of the loop again

Via Digby, we are reminded that in 2004 Bush was with seeming earnestness expressing a desire to find out who the Plame leaker was (though of course he didn't deem it a big enough deal to, like, actually ASK anyone at the White House:

WASHINGTON (CNN) --President Bush said Tuesday he welcomes a Justice Department investigation into who revealed the classified identity of a CIA operative.

"If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is," Bush told reporters at an impromptu news conference during a fund-raising stop in Chicago, Illinois.

Of course, now we all know it's Bush's right hand man, the porcine and vengeful Karl Rove.

So unless Bush was lying in 2004, heaven forbid, he was clueless about the nefarious manueverings of his top aide Rove. How embarrassing for Bush. Despite his protestations to the contrary, he is SO obviously not in charge. He had to wait for orders from Cheney on 9/11; when a plane entered restricted air space in DC, he was the last to know; and now this.

Poor Bush. He's a like a mushroom. They keep in the dark and feed him shit.

I wonder if they tell him his approval ratings are way up? "Yes sir, everything's great! Your ratings are sky-high! The people love you and they love what you're doing! Just stay the course, sir, stay the course! Remember . . . 'Resolve!' Eh!? Eh? 'Resolve,' baby, that's the word! You da MAN, sir, you da man!"
