Karl Rove, President Bush's close friend and chief political strategist, plans to leave the White House at the end of August, joining a lengthening line of senior officials heading for the exits in the final 1 1/2 years of the administration.Karl Rove is an evil little man with no scruples. His leaving the White House must be more than just his desire to spend more time with his family.
On board with Bush since the beginning of his political career in Texas, Rove was nicknamed "the architect" and "boy genius" by the president for designing the strategy that twice won him the White House. Critics call Rove "Bush's brain."
He has been involved with every scandal in the Bush White House. He was nearly indicted for the outing of Valerie Plame. He was intimately involved in the U.S. Attorney firings and is in general considered a snake politically. The War in Iraq would have never taken place if Karl Rove did not see political advantage to such an undertaking. The death and destruction caused by this war were acceptable to make President Bush a war President.
The unfortunate consequence of Mr. Rove's political calculations is that they were wrong. His advice has given us the most unpopular President in a generation, an endless war, huge budget deficits and a cynicism that hasn't been seen in politics since Watergate. That is the true legacy of Karl Rove.
The President has a nickname for Rove and that is "turd blossom". I would drop the "blossom". Karl Rove is truly a turd. Look for this freak to show up soon in the Republican clown car of 2008. Anyone want to wager a guess on which campaign he will join? My money is on Fred Thompson.
