Bush: Rove has 'my compete confidence'

Is there anything Karl Rove could do -- murder the Pope, plant IEDs in the Capitol, bugger the First Lady -- that would turm Pinnochio against Gepetto?

President Bush on Monday declared "complete confidence" in his top political adviser, Karl Rove, despite his alleged role in leaking a covert CIA operative's identity, according to an interview.

Federal investigators are trying to determine who outed covert CIA agent Valerie Plame, whose name first appeared in a column by newspaper journalist Robert Novak on July 14, 2003.

"Karl's got my complete confidence. He's a valuable member of my team," Bush said in his strongest defense yet of Rove, the architect of his presidential campaigns.

Not bloody likely.
