Karl Rove Calls Out the Opposition In New Book

As the administration of President George W. Bush lurches to a close, there is always room for parting gifts. One of which, by virtue of the Huffington Post, deals with a story behind what political operative and current FOX News consultant Karl Rove plans to reveal in his upcoming book. After the ink was dried on the $1.5 million dollar publishing deal, the former Deputy White House Chief of Staff to the 43rd President of the United States has vowed to point out people who opposed Mr. Bush during the leader’s time in office.

Why, that almost sounds like another situation entirely, doesn’t it?

Read it for yourself from the Huffington Post article:

Also reserved for between the covers of Rove’s book is his checklist of the “great many of the political actors in this town (who) never accepted [Bush] as a legitimate president.”

“I’ve got behind-the-scenes episodes that are going to show how unreceiving they were of this man as president of the United States,” Rove said, adding: “I’m going to name names and show examples.”

Let’s get something clear. Mr. Rove can name names all he wants, but the evidence shows otherwise why Mr. Bush was not treated as legitimate in some circles. Why, he must have been asleep the last eight years as Mr. Bush dragged this country right down the toilet. Well heck. He also must have missed the fact that sometimes, Mr. Bush even brought this lack of respect upon himself.

So while Mr. Rove thinks he can use such outing tactics to shame others via the printed word, there are folks who have gotten wise to his modus operandi.

After all, Executive Privilege does not last forever.

    Easy way to see who didnt support Bush. Look at all the qualified people that “resigned” during his terms. The main one being Colin Powell. I am not a fan of Rove. My opinion is he should be in jail instead of Libby. Anything he says I view as propaganda. I guess that makes him a politician.

    I agree with you, except for one thing: Karl Rove is no politician. He’s a crook. He mentored under Lee Atwater. After Atwater’s death, Rove carried out what he learned with ruthless precision. And he committed wrongdoing all the way up the food chain and was able to flaunt these endeavors in public as he served Bush 43.

    And Rove has the hubris to say that he has “Executive Privilege” to hide behind?

    Although it is very sickening to see Newsweek and FOX News employ this man, the only hope lies after January. After the 111th Congress is sworn in, he will still be in contempt of court. I wonder–with no Bush in the White House–how he presumes to get out of it in light of that.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Mr. Conyers and the rest of the House Judiciary to do their jobs.
