The city council of the city that really knows terrorism wants Rove out.


The City Council is weighing in on the controversial comments made by President George W. Bush's top adviser about the 9/11 attacks.

Democratic Speaker Gifford Miller says the Council will introduce a resolution next week that calls on the president to fire White House Senior Adviser Karl Rove.

The resolution reads: "Rove's rhetoric and cynical strategy of dividing Americans against each other for partisan gain has no place in our nation's public discourse."

And who could blame them? It was Bush, of course, who was asleep at the wheel on 9/11.

But we were all Americans- even the French, for Voidsakes- after 9/11.

But Rove has given aid and comfort to the enemy by trying to divide us for his own political purposes.

The fact that he did it within a few miles of Ground Zero was equivalent to spitting in the face of every New Yorker who isn't a conservative- and that's the overwhelming majority of them. It is grossly offensive to a group of people who've really known terrorism- and who really lived through it.

It's time for Rove to go. He's an embarassment to freedom loving Americans, and to New Yorkers, the folks who died and lived through 9/11 especially.
