No Conscience

The Rove Goes on Forever -- by James Moore
"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way." -- Franklin Delano Roosevelt

When I first started reporting on Karl Rove in the late 1970s, I was impressed by his singularity of purpose and his willingness to say or do whatever was necessary to succeed. This amorality, a complete lack of concern for right or wrong or harm done, will be his legacy in the American political process. Lives and careers might be destroyed, great institutions compromised, the truth sullied until it is unrecognizable, but all of that will be acceptable collateral damage to Karl as long as he and his party and candidates have won the day.

Here we see a sociopath at the highest level of government.
And he is leaving the White House for even greener pastures.
God help us all.

He is a sociopath and you can be assured he isn't going away, he is mad with power.

I will never understand why Rove is STILL celebrated as some sort of political "genius".

If we had a decent society and decent media, Rove would have been unceremoniously sent off as a hack who had no buiness in politics whatsoever.

It dosn't take a genius to realize race, hatred, and smear tactics can be used to win elections.

LET'S TALK said...

You all forget that, Rove was embraced by the Republican party, neocons, Evangelical Christians and such. Whatever they are, he is as well.

Just wish I could make half the millions he stands to make out there in the world of the rich.

hey, Larry--
agreed. he'll keep going till he's arrested which won't happen till Bush and Cheney are.

absolutely, Poli--
race, hatred, fear and smear have won WAY more elections than issues ever have.

and the guy who took those to the highest level in generations is touted as some sort of boy genius? give me a break.

hey, LT--
acourse, you're at a distinct disadvantage -- you have a conscience. that's why you won't make the millions he'll make -- you want to be able to look in a mirror without cringing.
