Bush Announces Resignation of Chief of Staff

QUOTE
President Bush today announced the resignation of his chief of staff, Andrew H. Card Jr., in the first major staffing change of his troubled second term.

Mr. Card will be replaced by Joshua Bolten, the budget director.

At a brief White House ceremony, Mr. Bush said that Mr. Card had approached him "and raised the possibility of stepping down."

"He thought it might be time to return to private life," Mr. Bush said, adding that he had decided last weekend to accept Mr. Card's resignation.

Yet another, irrelevant fall guy for the Bush Administration.

Many Republicans felt that even without Mr. Bush's mounting problems some new faces were needed. Mr. Card was approaching the record of the longest serving White House chief of staff, with a tenure rivaling that of Sherman Adams, the chief of staff to President Eisenhower.

Mr. Bush said Mr. Card had "served me and our country in historic times, on a terrible day when America was attacked, during economic recession and recovery, through storms of unprecedented destructive power, in peace and in war."

Hrmm...so he has been in the office a lot longer than the usual chiefs of staffs...and then decided it was time to go back to private life?

What is the big deal? :roll:

Republicans have for months argued that the Bush administration fumbled a number of key issues and high-profile changes were needed, the BBC's James Westhead in Washington says.
