Rove's Manufactured Reality

By       (Page 1 of 2 pages)   1 comment
Perhaps emboldened by the recent news that he will not be indicted, Bush’s brain is once again spewing full tilt partisan propaganda with no regard for the truth, as the midterm congressional elections approach. Shocker, huh?

Karl Rove gave an exclusive interview to New Hampshire based last week, during which he bemoaned the "hate and anger" being directed at his Manchurian president and conservatives by “the Left of the Democratic party” via the Internet.

Before I get to Karl’s witless words, a quick look at Victory NH. The group bills itself as a citizen activist network, but looks more like just another neocon front group, cobbled together by party bosses to push the nefarious Bush crime family agenda.

From their site:
"Victory NH began as a small, informal group of like-minded activists, determined to spread the truth about our troops’ successes in the War on Terror. Those early efforts have now grown into a network of activists and activist groups, dedicated to defending the principles and policies of lower taxes, smaller government, a strong national defense, and our free enterprise system. We believe the facts about these issues are consistently being ignored or distorted, and it is our desire to see that the truth be told."

I guess they’re no longer concerned about "spreading the truth about our troops’ successes in the War on Terror," though, because you won’t find a single example on their site. Nor will you find any examples of what they consider factual distortions of the other issues they mention, or their version of the facts.

Doesn’t exactly leave them with an overabundance of credibility, does it? Maybe this is why Rove decided to anoint them with his "greatness" in an exclusive interview. He likes to stick with his own kind, I guess.

Rove’s words:
"The Internet for the Left of the Democratic Party has served as a way to mobilize hate and anger - hate and anger, first and foremost, at this President and Conservatives, but then also at people within their own party whom they consider to be less than completely loyal to this very narrow, very out-of-the-mainstream, very far Left-wing ideology that they tend to represent."

Gee, Mr. Rove, what about those of us who aren’t Democrats? What about those of us who place truth, integrity, the rule of law and respect for our Constitution above whatever political affiliation we may choose to align ourselves with? Are you really saying that people who have the nerve to demand transparency and accountability from our government represent a "very narrow, very out-of-the-mainstream, very far Left-wing ideology"?

That disingenuous crap might work with your kool-aid drinking lemming base, but the rest of us (in other words, the majority of Americans) can see right through you, Karl. The emperor isn’t the only one without clothes.

More Rovian spin, on the Line Item Veto:
"In reality, there are 3 parties in Congress: Republicans, Democrats, and Appropriators. And guess what? The Republicans and Democrats are in a minority. So you need to have this important and executive tool that allows a President to shine a bright light on some unnecessary spending and then to have Congress vote up or down as to whether or not to override his veto."

Tell me something Karl. Why does a president need the Line Item Veto when he believes (as Bush does) that he can grant himself the power to ignore any law (or aspects thereof) as he sees fit by simply issuing a bogus "signing statement" when signing legislation?

We need no extra tools to shine an incredibly bright light on the unnecessary spending of the Bush administration. We’re spending 250 million dollars per day for your Oval Office puppet’s illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq, which has now killed 2500 of our troops, and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis, while the needs of Americans at home are ignored.

Tell me something else, Karl. What’s the noble cause? Why have all these fine young Americans and innocent Iraqis died?

Freedom and democracy in Iraq, you say?

If this is the reason, why are we not respecting that freedom and democracy by honoring the wishes of the 80 percent of Iraqis that want us to leave?

Don’t give me any Bushie garbage about how Iraq will descend into complete chaos if we leave. What is it now? Utopia? Please. America is not nearly as blind as you think we are, Karl.
