By ADAM NAGOURNEY and JIM RUTENBERG

WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 Karl Rove, the presidents chief political adviser, is struggling to steer the Republican Party to victory this fall at a time when he appears to have the least political authority since he came to Washington, party officials said.

Mr. Rove remains a dominant adviser to President Bush, administration officials say. But outside the White House, as Mr. Bushs popularity has waned, and as questions have arisen among Republicans about the White Houses political acumen, the partys candidates are going their own way in this difficult election season far more than they have in any other campaign Mr. Rove has overseen.

Some are disregarding Mr. Roves advice, despite his reputation as the nations premier strategist. They are criticizing Mr. Bush or his policies. They are avoiding public events with the president and Mr. Rove.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Authority, like respect, must be earned. And what did this war mongering, agent outing, college flunkie filthy political dirty trickster whore get this once great nation of ours?

1. rove and the rethugs
Anyone that believes this crap is not too smart. Rove and the planners are giving the instructions and they don't care if their candidates run away from bush, as control is what they want. After the elections all the rethugs will get in line again.

4. And what's the story with this paragraph?
"The White House said that Mr. Rove would consider an interview for this article if it were conducted off the record, with the provision that quotations could be put on the record with White House approval, a condition it said was set for other interviews with Mr. Rove. The New York Times declined."

Yeah, Rove will talk, but it has to be off the record, but we'll let you quote him if he doesn't say anything stupid or that otherwise reflects badly on himself or his boss. After all, as the former employer of Judith Miller, the Times has agreed to this before.

Has the Times finally wised up to how this administration has played them like a fucking Stradivarius for the last five years and more?

7. This time
How many other times are we reading White House vetted and approved quotes in the Times and elsewhere? I realize we the taxpayers are on the hook for all sorts of government propaganda in ads, press releases, and even supposedly independent columnists like Armstrong Williams and Maggie Gallagher; but what's the New York Times' angle in serving as yet another propaganda arm for the corrupt Bush administration? Are they getting paid off, or do they just do it for free?

8. No, they haven't wised up
They're still trying to place all the blame for the Plame lead on Armitage, remember?

NYT is not to be trusted.
