Quote For The Day: Karl Rove & Wall St. Journal Edition
Karl Rove, in a Wall Street Journal Op Ed on Thursday, lambasting Barack Obama’s presidency:
As for the killing of Osama bin Laden, Mr. Obama did what virtually any commander in chief would have done in the same situation. Even President Bill Clinton says in the film “that’s the call I would have made.” For this to be portrayed as the epic achievement of the first term tells you how bare the White House cupboards are.
What president Bill Clinton actually said:
He took the harder and the more honorable path. When I saw what had happened, I thought to myself, `I hope that’s the call I would have made.’
What Karl Rove’s Op Ed says today, after Rove’s lie was exposed, decried and widely discussed in the blogosphere and the mainstream media:
As for the killing of Osama bin Laden, Mr. Obama did what virtually any commander in chief would have done in the same situation. Even President Bill Clinton says in the film “I hope that’s the call I would have made.” For this to be portrayed as the epic achievement of the first term tells you how bare the White House cupboards are.
How the Wall Street Journal explains the correction:
Editor’s note: An earlier version of this column included an incomplete quote from Bill Clinton in the last paragraph.

Any Preznit except the one Karl Rove worked for…
You know, the guy who “let” 9/11 happen.
The same guy who said: “I really don’t spend much time thinking about him(Bin Laden)”
The guy who pulled forces gunning for OBL out of Tora Bora when they had him surrounded.
The guy who authorized the closing down of the CIA unit assigned to track him in 2006
Yeah, that one. W aka Bunnypants aka Karl Rove’s boss.
They don’t call him Turdblossom for nothin’.
In related “pot calling the kettle black” news, I give you Pope Hitlerjügend:
After Mexico he will visit Cuba. He said Marxism there was no longer working.
He believes the ideology no longer corresponds to reality and called for “new models” to be found.
He’s also some 30 years too late with that (marxism sucks) pronouncement
