Karl Rove’s Memoir Out in March, to Cover ‘Often-Controversial Role’

November 18, 2009

(ChattahBox)–Karl Rove, former Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff to former President George W. Bush is publishing his memoirs entitled, “Courage and Consequence,” due out on March 9, 2010. Rove, often referred to as “Bush’s brain,” was also a long-time Republican political operative known for his ruthless tactics. Rove now appears on the right-wing media outlet Fox News, where he regularly rewrites the history of the failed Bush presidency and attacks the Obama administration.

His dirty political tactics were aptly illustrated during the 2000 Republican primary, when he conducted a vile push poll asking, “Would you be more likely or less likely to vote for John McCain for president if you knew he had fathered an illegitimate black child? Rove resigned from the Bush administration on August 31, 2007, in the wake of his alleged involvement in several mounting scandals, including the Valerie Plame leak, the White House e-mail controversy and the firing of U.S. attorneys for political reasons.

Rove’s upcoming book will be published by Threshold Editions, a conservative arm of Simon Schuster. According to the publisher, “Courage and Consequence,” “frankly responds to critics, passionately articulates his political philosophy and openly explains the reasons behind his decisions in campaigns and the White House.”

Rove said in a statement that his book would be “a frank account of what I witnessed and my often-controversial role.”

Rove previously said, he would “name names” of individuals who did not accept Bush, as a “legitimate president.”

    A left-leaning column if I ever read one. No straight reporting here, nosiree. “His dirty political tactics…” and “…conducted a vile push poll” are the blogger’s way of infusing partisan reporting. No wonder everyone believes journalism is dead.
