Karl Rove's Memoir: Apparently, A Work of Fiction

The Associated Press reports that in his new memoir, Karl Rove continues to use the September 11 attacks to justify the invasion of Iraq. He also blames himself for failing to convince the public that President Bush did not start the war under false pretenses once the hunt for weapons of mass destruction came up dry. Rove insists however, that Bush did not knowingly mislead the public. Rove also praises Bush's handling of Hurricane Katrina and claims that local officials are the ones responsible for the terrible response. Rove's memoir should make a splash on the Best-Selling Fiction list.

Well, it can't be any worse than Twilight, I guess.

Well we do live in fictitious times.
Check out Karl Rove: Courage and Consequence, the unabridged audio instead.

Even liberals like Darren, who is smart and sometimes makes an effort to be an honest and objective observer of politics, sometimes can't help but make a fool of themselves. What is missing from Darren's assessment of Rove's book? He hasn't read it. No problem, let's attack anyway - he is the evil Rove. If anyone watched Rove on television, they would realize that he is a serious and mostly honest guy (especially honest for a political operative).

Kansas City: You state that Darren's post lacks an assessment of the book, and is therefore flawed. Yet you state that Karl Rove is a serious and honest guy, while providing no evidence to back your statement up.

I said that if anyone watched Rove on television, they would realize he is serious and honest. This means that I have watched him numerous times and have found him to be serious and honest. He obviously is conservative and partisan, but he also comes across as honest - much different than the man attacked by democrats for all those years. I realize this is a subjective assessment, but you should watch him and reach your own conclusions. For example, you could compare him to Carville, Beckel, O'Brien and Begalla (and for that matter Matlin), and I think you would see Rove as a far more honest commentator than those folks, even though they held similar political positions before becoming a commentator.

KC: We don't call folks fools around here....Anyway, if you thought this was a book review, then you need to learn a little bit about relaxation. Rove's history speaks for itself, by the way. Who needs to watch him on television AGAIN?
