GOP counts on Rove to head off disaster
http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2006-08-20-karl...

Karl Rove was waiting for the Southwest Airlines flight to New Hampshire to take off in June when his attorney sent him a welcome four-word message on his BlackBerry: "Fitzgerald called. Case over." Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald wasn't going to try to indict the deputy White House chief of staff over the leak of a CIA officer's name.

"You could see he was relieved," recalls Wayne Semprini, the state Republican chairman who greeted him in Manchester. Relieved, and ready to unleash a typically caustic attack on Democrats for criticizing the Iraq war. "They may be with you for the first shot," Rove said at a dinner that netted $60,000 for the state GOP. "But they're not going ... to be with you through the tough battles."

Rove knows something about tough battles, and he's in another one. Freed from the uncertainty over whether he would face criminal charges an indictment would have forced him to vacate his West Wing office Bush's top strategist is focusing his full attention on the fall elections.

Some Republicans see him as their best hope for heading off disaster in November.

1. His pic is front and center on USAToday and my
husband brings that home daily. I haven't had the curiosity or inclination to look at it yet. Ugh, I hate that man.

3. I couldn't watch it because I know how important Rove is. I'm
shocked this hasn't gotten more face-time.
Please put this up there again.

4. normally, this would be a good thing...
...as everything Rove has touched has turned to shit; the only thing saving the GOP from Rove's mistakes are the obsequiousness of the M$M, and the brain-dead cowardice of Democrats. With those to consistant pillars of support, i am very pessimistic about Democrat's taking back either chamber of congress.

5. Rove's number is up
The tide is turning against him, and the Republicans. People are fed up with their immaturity, name-calling and nonsense. They Dems will prevail.

:wtf:

I love how these cowardly chickenhawk motherfuckers throw this military imagery around. Go join up, lardass!
