Rove case emblematic of Bush White House

"Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer on the Rove case (Windows Media Player video) and here in transcript form:

Instead this White House did what it usually does when challenged: it went into attack mode, called charges that the White House had leaked the name ridiculous and allowed controversy to boil until the Special Prosecutor had to be appointed. Now two years and millions of tax dollars later, the president's trusted friend and strategist Karl Rove has emerged as the top suspect, and we're left to wonder, can anything said from the White House podium be taken at face value, or does the White House just deny automatically anything that reflects badly on them?

That about summarizes what's wrong with the Bush Administration as concisely as possible.
