Karl Rove's Parting Shot

"So how might history view the 43rd president? I can hardly be considered an objective observer, but in this highly polarized period, who is?"
That quote is from the man arguably most responsible for this "highly polarized period." There aren't many sane people who will have fond memories of the Turd Blossom, least of all me. My only wish for him is that someday, somehow, he reaps what he has sown. He talks of how Bush will be viewed by history. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll ever get a full, accurate account of how Rove featured in that historical perspective. But I'm sure he wouldn't fare very well.
I believe history will provide a more clear-eyed verdict on this president’s leadership than the anger of current critics would suggest.
President Bush will be viewed as a far-sighted leader who confronted the key test of the 21st century.
He will be judged as a man of moral clarity who put America on wartime footing in the dangerous struggle against radical Islamic terrorism.
Following the horrors of 9/11, this president changed American foreign policy by declaring terror sponsors responsible for the deeds of those they shelter, train, and fund. America, he said, will not wait until dangers fully materialize with attacks on our homeland before confronting those threats. . .
Oh, just make it stop. If you really want to read this crap, be my guest.
