Karl Rove – He who lives in a glass house . . .
Portsmouth, Virginia, Mike Barefield – Contributor
Karl Rove served as Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush from 2000–2007 and Deputy Chief of Staff from 2004–2007. At the White House he oversaw the Offices of Strategic Initiatives, Political Affairs, Public Liaison, and Intergovernmental Affairs and was Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy, coordinating the White House policy making process. In other words, he was the chief propagandist and chiefly responsible for the lies to the nation which resulted in many of us cheerleading our troops to go look for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The ones that we never found, because they did not exist. He is suspected of numerous other crimes. Still, he has the audacity to call into question Vice President Joe Biden’s integrity. See CNN’s report at Rove Calls Biden ….
Let me be very clear that I am not at all certain that the story VP Biden told about a private conversation he had with former President Bush in the oval office, in which he claims he called Bush down for calling himself a “leader” is true. President Obama once stated that Joe was prone to “rhetorical flourishes.” Even those of us who love VP Biden for his wit, congeniality and political perspective know that you have to take what he says with a grain of salt. There is a significant difference in the VP’s almost child-like “fibbing” (if he told an untruth at all), though, and the malicious, egregious lies constructed by Rove and his ilk which have cost thousands and thousands of lives and helped plunge this country and the world into the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression.
To say that Rove’s calling Biden a liar is the pot calling the kettle black just doesn’t seem to do the situation justice. I wish I could think of something better.
