article imageKarl Rove: I wasn't George W. Bush's brain

By Andrew Moran     Mar 5, 2010 in Politics
Karl Rove, senior adviser to former President George W. Bush, told NBC's Matt Lauer, while promoting his latest book, that he was not "Bush's brain" during his tenure.
Karl Rove, who is promoting his latest book “Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight,” told NBC’s Matt Lauer on Friday that he was not former President George W. Bush’s brain, according to MSNBC. Rove feels that being given that moniker isn’t really a compliment to him but an insult to the former President.
Rove explained that he has known Bush for almost four decades and the former Texas Governor is a really smart man, “If you really want to diminish a candidate, depict him as the foil of his handler. This is as old in American politics as politics itself. It’s easy to point at me. I’m convenient.”
The former Deputy Chief of Staff stated that Bush administration and the invasion of Iraq in 2003 will ultimately defined by history. Politico reports that Rove further added that the tragic day of Sept. 11, 2001 determined the President to do all he could to prevent another attack like that and also to avoid weapons of mass destruction into the hands of the “world’s most dangerous dictators.”
According to USA Today, Rove claims in his 596-page book that he does not hate President Barack Obama, while his memoir slightly attacks Democratic Senate Majority leader Harry Reid by discussing a phone conversation with the Nevada Senator, “I was stunned at his cynicism and willingness to treat judicial nominees as if they were minor-league baseball prospects to be traded.”
