The absurdity of the control we allowed Karl Rove to gain over our nation . . .

It was Rove's casting of G.W. Bush as a victim--in real life--that was, and still is, absurd. Rove victimized Congress as well. Robert Byrd's voice of reason was a voice in the wilderness at that time.

Condemnation of G.W. Bush is clearly the view of a majority of grassroots Democrats, as well as two of our foremost intellectual leaders Paul Krugman and Maureen Dowd for whom I have the utmost respect. However, G.W. Bush was as much a victim of Rove as was the Republican Party and the rest of us.

Rove was not just an evil genius, acting alone. He aligned himself with Tom Donohue, Bill Canary, and Dick Addington in 1994, as well as with Boyden Gray, whose primary family loyalty was to the tobacco industry. In early 2000, out of desperation, Rove again aligned himself with Donohue, in his new capacity as head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and gave him a blank check drawn against the treasury of the United States Government.

Rove sold us--Democrats, Republicans and Independents--down the river, to gain control of the Presidency and our government for himself.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
