Default President Bush "tends not to email"

The storm over the firing of eight U.S. attorneys continues to swirl in Washington. On Thursday, senators grilled former Justice Department operative D. Kyle Sampson, who said that his boss, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, did have a direct hand in the dismissals.

Gonzales had earlier claimed he wasn't personally involved, and on that point the paper trail didn't contradict him. Because in all the thousands of pages of emails released by the White House so far, there's not one email from the Attorney General himself. Apparently he doesn't use email.

And he's not the only Cabinet official. Donald Rumsfeld claimed not to use it. Ditto for Condoleezza Rice and Michael Chertoff. In fact, the President himself told CNBC last year that he didn't touch the stuff.

PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH: I tend not to email – or not only tend not to email -I don't email, because of the different record requests that could happen to a president. I don't want to receive emails, ‘cause, you know, there's no telling what somebody would e-mail me - and it would show up as a, you know, a part some kind of a story. And I wouldn't be able to say, well, I didn't read the email. But I sent it to your address. How can you say you didn't? So, in other words, I'm very cautious about emailing.

In the wake of the prosecutor purge, some are questioning whether Bush and his staffers are really steering clear of email altogether or just their official White House accounts.

Recently released documents show that one aide to Karl Rove helped orchestrate the firings using an account registered to the Republican National Committee. And Rove himself reportedly uses his RNC account for about 95 percent of his emailing.

If I were a president.. i'd probably be rather afraid of email as well.

He doesn't use e-mail for the same reason no president tapes their conversations anymore.

See, I'm still pretty sure he's the one sending me chain letters about how Jeebus loves me, so I'm fairly certain someone here is lying about something.

The main thing is, though, they just aren't using White House email. Sounds like people like Rove use his RNC one quite a bit, and others will just use random "non-official" email addresses they can access from their Blackberries and whatnot whenever they want. And we know certain Congressmen are familiar with email... and instant messaging...

I believe that he doesn't use email. I think technology scares and confuses him.
