From a reader:
Larry Lindsey (whose name Babs misspells) has become an icon of the
antiBush left, fired for telling the truth. He would be a better example
if he believed this too. Larry is a huge Bush supporter to this day, who
writes op-eds in support of the President. Plus, oddly enough, Larry does
not express the belief that he was fired. Larry intended to stay for
around 2 years, at the pleasure of the President, and left in December
2002. While O’Neill got in his car and drove off to Pittsburgh, Larry
remained in the White House until his successor arrived, and worked with
him for a few weeks to help get him started.
Karl Rove and Don Evans “roasted” Larry at the party celebrating his
departure. Senior Bush staffers (campaign and appointees) attended his
recent 50th birthday party.
