The View from the White House How are President Bush and Karl Rove taking all this? The Hotline blog has a few tidbits: "From White House spokesperson Emily Lawrimore: 'Karl has informed the president that they've lost the majority in the House. He's obviously disappointed, but he's eager to work with Congress on his priorities and issues important to Americans." The president called NRCC chair Tom Reynolds tonight, but that was his only call. He's not talked to Hastert or Pelosi. He'll make those calls in the a.m.'"
