Andy Card

Powerline has the thought of the day.
One more point: Polman and many others assume that Bush dismissed Card and replaced him with Bolten. That may well be true, but I'm not aware of any evidence to that effect. One persistent report is that Card resigned in order to join Mitt Romney's Presidential campaign. Again, I have no idea whether that's true or not; my point is that it's unwarranted to assume that every time a significant Executive Branch official resigns, he's been fired.
President Bush is known for his loyalty AND for overworking his employees! Put those two together and I really doubt Mr. Card was "fired". I'm quite certain he's tired though.
