God bless President Obama for his courage, and shame on the media

sez Karl Rove.

Republican strategist Karl Rove ripped the media on Tuesday for attacking Bush administration officials who justified the use of torture. He also praised President Barack Obama for using drone strikes to kill suspected terrorists, including U.S. citizens.

The former Bush adviser said on Fox News that officials like Alberto Gonzales, John Yoo, Jay Bybee and others were “excoriated” and “hounded” by liberals and the media. Yet the Obama administration has faced little criticism for justifying the use of drone strikes against U.S. citizens.

Though Rove believed the “cowardly” media was “hypocritical” and “callow,” he said he supported the President’s use of drones.

“I want to be clear, I’m not with them on the side of believing this is a wrong policy. I want to give the President the benefit of the doubt. I do believe the president has to have the tools like this to deal with people like al-Awlaki,” Rove said, noting the U.S. citizen was actively involved in terrorism plots against the United States. “And God bless President Obama for having the courage to take him out.”

6. Wow, Rove actually said, " God bless President Obama! "

We should insert that quote into a few ads.

8. I will rest easy tonight knowing that Karl Rove supports Obama...

I remember the good ole days of DU and all the Karl Rove defenders. DUers would explode at the news of torture and rendition but when Karl Rove would pipe up to defend the practices, DUers would calm down and purr like kittens.

15. Karl Rove is a turdblossom

that the M$M seems to feed on like hogs to slop. Why he still has work, is amazing to me.

Oh right, Socksnews. The people that employed Sarah Palin.

What did he say when our POTUS ordered OBL killed?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/post/karl-rove-bin-laden-killing-was-no-biggie/2012/03/22/gIQAMtjeTS_blog.html

"Keep an eye on this one, too, because it will also be central to GOP efforts to rewrite the history of the Obama presidency.

In his big Wall Street Journal Op ed piece today attacking Obama’s campaign documentary and minimizing the magnitude of the economic crisis Obama inherited, Karl Rove also claims the killing of Osama Bin Laden was no big deal.

Rove cites this quote from Bill Clinton in the documentary to make the case that any president would have made the call Obama made:"

SO...what is the deal here?

I know...Karl Rove is a horrible liar and knows Iraq will be on his hands just like his bosses.

Probably wants everyone to forget about Afghanistan too.

A pile of shit is a pile of shit is a Karl Rove. What he says is secondary.
