Karl Rove Wishes That Everyone Would Forget About His Crimes

Karl Rove Wishes Everyone Would Forget About His Crimes
Sadly, this image will never be real.
Karl Rove was on Fox News last night discussing the recent incident where Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans tried to make a citizen’s arrest against him because of his crimes during the Bush administration at a California book signing event, but instead of addressing or apologizing for his crimes, Rove told Fox News that he just wishes people would forget about them.

Here is video of the incident from CBS News:

Here is Karl Rove on Fox News last night courtesy of Think Progress:

When asked about the incident by Bill O’Reilly, Rove said, “Well, you know, what was interesting was I thought this was a well-organized event, it was supposed to be a prestige venue as my publisher said and it was the first and it will be the last book tour stop I have where there was not security. But, you know what? I wish there wasn’t so much attention paid to it. Because I had a fantastic swing through California.” Rove then went on to tout how many books he sold in California.

This is a different tone from Rove than at the time of the confrontation on April 30 when he said that citizen’s arrest attempt “shows the totalitarianism of the left.” At this point we all need to stop and ask ourselves how a democratic concept like the citizen’s arrest could possibly reflect totalitarianism. Keep in mind that Rove was confronted by a woman in a pink hat not the secret police. (Although judging from his Bush administration track record, a secret police is an idea that would tickle Rove’s fancy).

The idea that Karl Rove of all people would complain about totalitarianism is absurd to say the least. Here are just a few of the highlights from Rove’s Bush years, secret prisons, never charging detainees, torture, the outing of a CIA agent, lying to lead the United States into an unnecessary war, and a secret illegal wiretapping of his fellow American citizens. I am sure that Karl Rove does want the American people to go back to sleep, stop paying attention, and forget about his crimes. In the case of Rove, Rumsfeld, Cheney and many others in the Bush Administration, I hope they get harassed every time they appear in public. They will never face criminal charges, but the American people should never be allowed to forget what these individuals did in our names.

  1. Only 40-ish people showed up to see the Rotund One, so his spin that it went well is…well, a lie. Hardly the worst of his lies, but nonetheless, a lie.

    The fact that he is scared of the Pink Ladies is just….delicious.

  2. Too bad the fetid, bloated slug known as Karl Rove isn’t in jail, but he will always know that he is despised far and wide. I wouldn’t trade places with the sweaty one for all the tea in China.

  3. P.S. Hey, what happened to toad-boy’s Texas accent???

    P.P.S. “Pink is a good color for you but not for me.”
    No, starfish brown is YOUR color, rover.

    (30) Karl Rove souhaite que tout le monde serait oublier ses crimes
    Sorry, Karl, no one will forget your crimes, not here, not other places in the world. Can’t wait for Karma to slap him, hard.
