Karl Rove’s memoir based on fantasy?

By Doug Thompson

Karl Rove: A work of fiction?

Karl Rove, shifting from strategist to apologist for the failed administration of his former boss, George W. Bush, claims in a new book that the White House did not lie about that non-existent weapons of mass destruction that served as the centerpiece for the rationale for invading Iraq in 2003.

The man who was called “Bush’s brain” admits the failure to find any such weapons damaged the credibility of the administration but claims Democrats made the same claims and then acted like they didn’t when they turned on the President with what he calls “a poison-tipped dagger aimed at the heart of the Bush presidency.”

But while Rove defends Bush is expected passion, he admits some mistakes by the administration.

The White House’s lackluster response, he admits was “too passive for two long.” But he lays most of the blame on Democrats in Louisiana.

Rove also reserves some space to attack President Barack Obama and his health care plan.

The book is titled “Courage and Consequence” and critics say it belongs in the fiction section of bookstores.

    I’m sorry Karl Rove decided to protect his own political arse with a book of fiction. I don’t believe that even he has any concept of the damage that his Administration did to the Republican Party and the Federal Government. The change in agenda starting with Bush 41 removed much of the old agenda that won elections. Without the White House programs of financially supporting the churches, Bush 43 would never have won the White House. I had been a Republican but followed the old agenda of fiscal responsibility and individual freedoms.

    Without this fiscal agenda, the GOP stood for nothing but religious values and the control over gays and abortions. I sat through the campaign against President Obama and not once was I tempted to return to the GOP. It is gone, destroyed and sadly winning votes. The GOP is nothing but a war on terrorism, drugs, gays and women. They do not campaign for anything. This I blame on Karl Rove and the Tea Party group.

    The GOP needs an offensive plan with a good coach. Corruption runs the party with a silly bimbo playing Lucy searching for a defense move. “Turd Blossom” was responsible for Bush’s failures who gave every damn Republican a feeling of guilt. We all witnessed the downfall of the American government under the level of a holy crusade of hell.

      It amazes me that everyone talks about how incompetent GWB was but yet credit him for derailing an entire world order. It doesn’t work that way. Get a clue.

    Karl’s whole ideology is based on fantasy, so shouldn’t his book be too?

    Is there a possibility that Carl Rove, although quite bright, is also a narcissistic sociopath who doesn’t have the ability to see the error of his ways? If so, his writings are simply a testament to these mental debilities. : |

    The man has a serious mental problem, he definitely needs some professional help. Maybe Mr. Rove and Dick Cheney could get a discount from a “shrink” if they both go in together. But in all seriousness, with people such as these two, what hope is there for this country? Do or did any of our “leaders” have the welfare of this nation at “heart”?
