Karl Rove is either losing his mind or thinks the American public is a bunch of chumps. Get this. Mr. spinmister recently made the assertion it was Congress that drove the country to war in 2002. Wow!
Forgetting for a moment it was administration officials such as Condi Rice and Dick Cheney who beat the war drums throughout 2001 and 2002, Rove actually blames former Senator Tom Daschle for the nation's rush to war. Rove seems oblivious to the fact the republiCONS controlled Congress when the Iraq war resolution passed. And as such it was the republiCONS, not Senator Daschle who had the power to slow down the race to war.
But a simple fact won't deter Karl. Rather, it probably won't be long before the spinmister claims Democrats were actually in charge of Congress at the start of the war. But why stop at merely blaming the Democrats for the war? Karl's real aim seems to be Bush's complete exoneration of any responsibility for the Iraq quagmire. So look for Karl soon after Georgie leaves office in 2009, to place total blame for the war on the left by not only claiming the Democrats were in charge of Congress when the first bombs fell on Baghdad, but more importantly Bush wasn't even President at the time.
