Will you buy Karl Rove's new book?

Former president George W. Bush did not mislead the nation about weapons of mass destruction as a way to "lie us" into war, his former top political aide, Karl Rove, asserts in a new memoir, "Courage and Consequence." Read the full article.

Are you kidding? I wouldn't even use pages of Rove's book to wipe my backside with. Who knows what kind of soul-eating disease I'd end up with.

HAH!!!!!!! I wouldn't use it for toilet paper. I'd probably get infected. Ken

Why would anyone want to read this revisionist history from this pathological liar?

Posted by: jckdoors | March 4, 2010 1:20 PM

I've noticed that the only people willing to discuss the Bush Administration in a positive light are former Bush Administration officials. Even hard-core Republicans just wish that the Bushies would disappear forever.

Most of America took hits in their retirement funds,
Millions lost their jobs.
Millions lost their health insurance.
Millions lost their houses.

Mr. Rove became rich and now writes fiction about his wonderful experiences.

TerdBlossom is a very apt name for him.

Rove is among the top 2 or 3 people who did more to damage this country than bin Ladin et al. Cheney, Gonzales, Rove were even worse than Bush himself. He was just too dumb. Thye were deliberate.

Posted by: jmsbh | March 4, 2010 2:11 PM

He didn't seem to like the US Constitution very much.
Will it tell us why?

If Josef Goebbels had survived the Third Reich, would anyone have paid him to write his version of the Hitler years? Would anyone have paid money to read it? Karl Rove was nothing but a propagandist for the Bush Administration. Since when do propagandists become truth tellers? He helped an incompetent become president and used fear to get him re-elected. Now Rove is not sorry that he helped start an un-necessary war, but only that he was not fast enough on the "spin" when the excuses for that war were revealed to be lies. He has gone unrepentant and unpunished for his part in the disastrous Bush Administration. Is he to be rewarded now with book royalties? I think not.

A bunch of bulk buys will push the book up.

I think this should have been the front cover of the book.

It would give you a reference point for what you were about to read.

Karl "Joseph Goebbels" Rove is a true enemy of this state. The direction set by him and others at Bush Administration have placed USA on an irreparable path to dissolution as The world power.

The man should be behind bars, not making money writing fiction.

Too bad he wasn't releasing this closer to November; lest the easily distracted public forget that Obama actually inherited a monstrous mess and didn't just create it like Bush did.

I certainly couldn't read the disseminating dribble from this real life troll and not break the cardinal rule of buring a book. After all that's his type of neo-facist fantasy.

Posted by: theobserver4 | March 4, 2010 3:53 PM

A fool and his / her money are soon parted.

Rove ? you're kidding, right ? A writer ?

Is this what they meant when it was asserted that the Acts of the GWBush admin. would be seen as positive actions in history ?

Sorry Rove; history will demand a true story, and lasts longer than your lifetime, to boot.

He(GWB)will NOT be one of those heroic, currency-ready US Presidents, as you would like to imagine, Mister Rove.

and throwing a book out at this time is more of a propaganda move than anything.

Yeah, propaganda. You KNEW this was coming, didn't you America?

The true "axis of evil"("w", DICKY, DONNIE, KARL, Condo, and a few others)should be in real prisons for the rest of their miserable lives. Prison is the perfect place for these despicable little pieces of lifeform to enjoy their legacy. TFL, Ken

Buy his book? Are you kidding? Why on earth would anyone in his right mind want to hear MORE of his lies?

I'll buy it ..might come with some free pills.

Posted by: cmsatown | March 4, 2010 4:31 PM

Wow! You folks are clearly on another Bush hate binge here. Can't you accept that he isn't President anymore?

If you could drop the blind rage for a moment or two, you might learn something from reading the book, but then that would require some intelligent thought and well, judging from the comments, that just isn't going to happen with this crowd. That is too bad. Hate is not a great thing.

So tell me, given the intensity of your hatred, why would any Republican want to work with you? Maybe someday you will return to rationality and then we can start working on making the country a better place for everyone.

No thanks, I've already heard enough from Rove's book. One good sample of that steaming pile of self-serving deceit and denial was plenty. Oh sure, Bush wouldn't have invaded Iraq if he hadn't believed it had weapons of mass destruction. Talk about moot. Bush's belief was impervious to the facts. He needed an excuse for something he already planned to do. Does anybody remember the Downing Street memo?

Posted by: fzdybel | March 4, 2010 5:28 PM

"Can't you accept that he isn't President anymore? "

That's not the problem. The problem is the mess he left behind. We're still dealing with it. You'll just have to put up with our complaints. As for Republicans getting upset about that, don't worry sweetie. Like all politicians, they're on the take. They work hand in hand with the Democrats to sell this country down the river, each and every day.

Why buy it when I can get it at the library.

Posted by: josephmccolley | March 4, 2010 8:03 PM

Only if I ran out of bathroom tissue.

Posted by: tuttlegroup | March 4, 2010 8:07 PM

Buy his book ? No, No, No ... but I will chip in to buy his bus ticket to the nearest Federal Prison !!

Posted by: loretoguy | March 4, 2010 8:19 PM

Are you kidding me ? No, No, No !!
But I will contribute a share toward his bus ticket to the nearest Federal Prison.

Karl Rove, got to love him. He's been kicking the stupid demtards butts for years. All he has to do is get out his little white note board and the demwits are baffled. Jeez, real numbers and facts, oh my, how am I going to deal with it. lol.......democrat party is the party of stupid.

Posted by: twotimetuna | March 4, 2010 8:30 PM

Rove is vile piece of crap that should have never been born. I hope he dies tomorrow.

Posted by: misterbumbles | March 4, 2010 9:22 PM

Rove is living proof, of many assertions such as;
Advertising men and politicians are dangerous if they are separated. Together they are diabolical.
Phillip Adams

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.
Douglas MacArthur

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the
country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country Herman Georing

The arts of power and it's minions are the same in all countries and in all ages. It marks it's victim; denounces it; and excites the public odium and the public hatred, to conceal it's own abuses and encroachments. ( Henry Clay, March 14, 1834 )

Sad American

Posted by: jpenergy | March 4, 2010 11:06 PM

Rove is a fxxxxxx traitor to this nation and to the CIA and every American Intelligence Officer. He and Cheney and the rest of that Nazi group laughed like all hell when they destroyed the longterm patriotic career of Ms Plame out of revenge.
That told every single hard working and dedicated Intelligence Officer that nothing would get in their way at getting what they wanted and anyone trying to would get wacked by Cheney's office.
Rove, another fleshy, frightened, foul white man is and has always been too cowardly to every put his own body on the line for America.
He has never felt one ounce of sorrow for the thousands of lives he helped to slaughter in Iraq. This piece of garbage is more than likely the architect of the slander and smears thrown at Ms Cindy Shepard as she struggled with grief over the loss of her only son. Rove never gave a damn about her or any other Mother.
Fox Fools will buy his lies and promote his socalled book, but Rove knows in his heart millions of Americans know him for the dirty dog he is. No one respects him and one day he will be just like Lee Atwater was on his dying bed, begging for forgiveness for being a rotten human being and destroying other people's lives.

Posted by: papafritz571 | March 4, 2010 11:10 PM

For those Bush and Cheney lovers who would buy Rove's book ... go ahead and give Rove your money and suck up his stories. Drink the Kool-aid. You people believe any fantasy that he spins out. That's sad. He'll just feed you the half-truths and distortions that support your ideology. That's what I like about you right-wingers. You don't let the facts interfere with their beliefs.

Posted by: crudblue | March 5, 2010 12:02 AM

I don't tend to read fiction.

Posted by: jeffc6578 | March 5, 2010 3:02 AM

It ought to be subtitled "Karl's big book of lies and delusions". I wouldn't use this as toilet paper for my dog.
