    Perhaps after working pretty much non stop for 5 1/2 years a person wants to take a break.

    A guy works in an incredibly stressful job for 6 years and decides to resign. So naturally the obvious conclusion is that he is "falling on his sword" for something....

    I mean totally ignore the fact that:

    1)There is no evidence that he is resigning for any reason other than he is tired of his current position and wants to move on with the rest of his life.

    2)There isn't even a "something" that he could be "falling on his sword" for.

    No, its obvious there is some secret plot here.

    Apparently, Bush and Card traded back pats as they left the press conference. Doesn't sound like sword-falling to me.

    Stop getting your news from msnbc.com. It's another coverup, it's falling on the sword, it's Bush's pole numbers,,,it's he wants to stop working 14 hour days. :boobies:

    Yes 5 1/2 years at 16 hours a day. He has lasted more than twice as long as any chief of staff in recent history.
    I wish him the best of luck...Maybe he will run for vice president someday?? :)

    I bet it was another secret Neocon plot to get Josh Bolten closer to Bush. :rock:
