Without a trace of self-consciousness, Rove complained that politics in DC have become too negative because it’s gotten personal and nasty. He blames it on the Beltway predilection for carrying a grudge, unlike the folks down in Texas, where he says everyone shakes hands, moves on, and gets along.Yes, because Bush and Rove were known for their magnanimity and grace towards their political enemies. Oh wait:
Hottest exchange: The first audience member to ask a question during the open Q&A wanted to know when Rove would stand trial for treason for his involvement in the outing of Valerie Plame. It was the only time all night Rove really seemed rattled. Visibly angry, Rove sputtered about the “stupid civil lawsuits” filed by Plame and her husband, Joe Wilson.
Just remember. Our great moral President not only hired Rove, but he protected him after Rove outed a CIA agent who worked FOR US!
