Former senior advisor to George W. Bush, Karl Rove seems to be leading the disenchanted Bush-era dialogue into a dismal legacy. The new Fox News correspondent (of course) spoke with the Today Show’s Matt Lauer about the current state of Obamanation and the stimulus bill that has recently passed with considerable Republication speculation. In a video posted by the Washington Post, a defensive Rove responds to a comment from Obama senior advisor David Axelrod in which Axelrod said:
“The last thing that I think we are looking for at this juncture is advice on fiscal integrity or ethics from Karl Rove — anyone who’s read the newspapers for the last eight years would laugh at that.”
Rove goes on to pass the blame for the recession to Bill Clinton. Sparks flew throughout the comments. I chimmed in with a well homeworked comment pointing out that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s downfall happened under the Bush administration’s watch and not to blame Clinton! Democrats and liberals alike really come out of the wood work whenever their administration is attacked. Bipartisianism at its absolute worst.
