    The unusual part is that some GOoPers actually convinced Bush this will turn things around.

      Rumored for a month, it is about time Mr. Card resigned. We are looking forward to Mr. Bolten's tenure in the office of White House Chief of Staff. Mr. Bolten has been in the Office of Management and Budget where he has privately been a reasonable voice willing to control spending. We have been disappointed with the budget process as led by the White House, but we understand that Mr. Bolten favors more restraints and executive action to control and cut spending than Mr. Card ever did.

      The President appears to have listened to those who think the White House needs new blood and new ideas. Mr. Bolten has been a forward thinker and we welcome him to the job. While the President suffers from lame duck syndrome and a stagnant administration at present, we should remember that at this point in his administration, Reagan was the same way. He then picked a new Chief of Staff, turned a corner, and revitalized his Presidency.

      We hope for the same from President Bush.

      Mmmm, KoolAid. Trust Dear Leader. Dear Leader knows what is good for you. Dear Leader will make everything better.

        hahaha. I just posted below that the comments are already starting about his not being new blood and not what people had in mind to change things. Heard from news guy on MSNBC.

        Do they really believe that anybody besides political junkies actually care who the Chief of Staff is?

        Ditch Rumsfeld or Cheney; then, maybe, you'd see some effect.

        nobody in this administration should ever quit.  On the way out, they will dump blame for every problem on you.  The budget deficit is Andy Card's fault?  Good analysis RedState.  It would be ridiculous to blame a Republican congress for sucha thing.
