Karl Rove: A Great Man Rides into the Sunset

Filed under: Breaking News,President Bush,Republicans — Psycheout @ 11:36 am

Karl RoveIt’s official. The greatest strategist in modern Republican history is heading home. He’s leaving the Bush Administration, effective August 31, 2007 after years of keeping it on an even keel.

Karl Rove, President Bush’s longtime political adviser, is resigning as White House deputy chief of staff effective Aug. 31, and returning to Texas, marking a turning point for the Bush presidency.

An emotional President Bush had this to say:

President Bush made the announcement Monday morning. “Karl Rove is moving on down the road,” Mr. Bush said, appearing grim-faced on the White House’s South Lawn with Mr. Rove at his side. “We’ve been friends for a long time and we’re still going to be friends … I’ll be on the road behind you here in a bit,” he said.

Equally choked up was the big man himself, Karl Christian Rove:

“I’m grateful to have been a witness to history. It has been the joy and the honor of a lifetime,” said Mr. Rove, his voice quivering at times. “But now is the time. .. At month’s end,” Mr. Rove said, “I will join those whom you meet in your travels, the ordinary Americans who tell you they are praying for you.”

Karl Rove is a great American and a brilliant political strategist. You will be missed, old friend.

  1. Yeah, Rove, the man who nearly lost a war-time election for an incumbent and turned what looked to be endless Republican dominance into what looks like now near irrelevancy for a generation. Some genius, that Turdblossom.

  3. Well Brad, he managed to engineer the colossal bamboozlement that was selling the Iraq war to the American people. Gotta give him some credit.

  4. Karl will be an unsung hero but it was his wind that lifted the eagle that is GW Bush to the same heights of American glory that Washington, Lincoln and Regan are at. Rove has served this country well.
