'Mark of Rove': Attack, leave no trail
Dallas Morning News ^ | 7/13/05 | Wayne Slater

Posted on 07/13/2005 7:16:19 AM PDT by Tumbleweed_Connection

As Texas' top political operative, Karl Rove honed an ability to damage an opponent without clear evidence that he was responsible.

The pattern exasperated Democrats but always served Mr. Rove well – until, perhaps, the case of Valerie Plame.

Despite early White House denials of his involvement, Mr. Rove has come under attack for his role in the unmasking of a covert CIA operative – an act that appeared aimed at punishing a Bush administration critic, Ms. Plame's husband.

It's not the first time that President Bush's most-trusted political adviser has been accused of political hardball or dirty tricks. But usually, there are no fingerprints.

"I don't think anybody who has ever been on the other side of a campaign from Karl Rove could ever be surprised by the allegations, whether well-founded or not," said Austin political consultant Chuck McDonald. "Karl is relentless in his pursuit of whatever his agenda is."

Political operatives in Texas have long seen a pattern they call "the Mark of Rove." Level an opponent, leave no evidence.

A decade ago, Mr. McDonald was advising Democrat Lena Guerrero, a rising political star, when Mr. Rove leaked word to a reporter that Ms. Guerrero, whose resume claimed she was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Texas, didn't even have a degree.

The leak, and subsequent firestorm of publicity, damaged Ms. Guerrero, a railroad commissioner, and a Rove client defeated her.

In the 1986 governor's race in which he represented Republican Bill Clements, Mr. Rove announced he had found an electronic listening device in his office.

The controversy, coming on the eve of a key debate, helped Mr. Clements unseat incumbent Mark White.

Many Texas Democrats believe the episode was a political dirty trick. Mr. Rove denied he concocted the story.

In 1990, Mr. Rove recruited a little-known West Texas legislator named Rick Perry to challenge Agriculture Commissioner Jim Hightower. Stories leaked to newspapers questioned ethical practices within Mr. Hightower's agency, prompting an FBI investigation.

Two Agriculture Department officials went to prison, and Mr. Hightower, who was not charged with wrongdoing, lost the election.

Four years later, when Mr. Rove directed Mr. Bush's first run for governor, a whisper campaign in East Texas targeted incumbent Ann Richards' appointment of gays in her administration. Mr. Rove said he was not involved, but analysts said the incident damaged Ms. Richards' re-election chances.

And in the 2000 presidential race, Mr. Bush faced a serious challenge in the Republican primary from Sen. John McCain. Bush allies questioned whether years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam had left Mr. McCain temperamentally ill-suited for the presidency.

Mr. Rove said he played no role in the attack on Mr. McCain. He also denied involvement in last year's successful attack by an independent group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, on Democrat John Kerry's service in Vietnam.

Much of the early money bankrolling the Swift Boat Veterans, though, came from a Houston homebuilder whom Mr. Rove recruited two decades ago to help bankroll the emerging Texas GOP.

The Kerry campaign was quick to see a pattern, even as Rove and Team Bush denied there was one.

"This town is built on myths," Mr. Rove told Fox News. "And I've become a convenient myth."

Perhaps the closest parallel to the current controversy over the outing of the CIA official occurred more than a decade ago.

In that political dustup, a newspaper columnist wrote a damaging piece in 1992 about Rove political rivals within the Texas Republican Party. Although Mr. Rove denied that he was the leaker, Republican leaders believed he was responsible and canceled his direct-mail contract with the Texas GOP.

The columnist in that episode, as in the Valerie Plame case, was Robert Novak.

Oh, I see. Since there is no evidence that Rove is the leaker, it proves Rove is the leaker.

They have officially gone round the bend. Call the men in the white coats.

Macavity's a Mystery Cat: he's called the Hidden Paw--
For he's the master criminal who can defy the Law.
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair:
For when they reach the scene of crime--Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no on like Macavity,
He's broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity.
His powers of levitation would make a fakir stare,
And when you reach the scene of crime--Macavity's not there!
You may seek him in the basement, you may look up in the air--
But I tell you once and once again, Macavity's not there!

Rove alone, is smarter than the whole DNC put together. They cannot stand it -- he shows, through strategy and words alone, how IRRELEVANT and ANTI-AMERICAN the left is.

Just the sort of "balanced" reporting for which the Dallas Morning Spew is (in)famous.

Still not as bad as CNN's feature last night, with the subtitle "Worse than Watergate?" running across the bottom of the screen throughout.

For over twenty years I subscribed to the Dallas Morning News and now you know why I quit. They have a decent sports section but other than that its the same old MSM trash.

They recently sent me a letter wanting me to start the paper again for free, as they can't sell their junk any longer.

They said they wanted to win me back, well printing lies and mis-information is why I quit in the first place.

This is insanity: there is nothing in this latest stupid article but innuendo and no facts. And how many times can they go back to the South Carolina primary and bring up John McCain? This whole story is getting very interesting but not for the reasons the MSM and the dems --sorry for the redundancy there-- are hoping for.

Guerrero was a liar and a fraud (much like Joe Wilson) and somehow it's Karl Rove's fault?

I am getting much entertainment from this fiasco. Since they have been informed by the people who wrote the darn law that NO LAW WAS BROKEN, they are now apparently going with the "Rove isn't good enough for the President" line.

ANY of these Rats who stick their heads up with this BS should be pounded down like whack-a-mole dummies.

You notice that when the could attribut things to Rove, it was that he was putting out facts that liberals were attempting to hide.

So basically these reporters are accusing him of doing their jobs for them and exposing the truth.

One the other hand, the liberals attack with lies, half truths, and quotes taken out of context, and the press supports their efforts.

Are these reporters really that stupid that they can't see how one sided they are? Do they really believe that they are trying to inform the public? Or are they really that amoral that they have no problem using lies to push their agenda on people they believe are too stupid to make good decisions if they were given the truth?

One of the reasons I like the President so much is his LOYALTY. You would think that the press would realize that he isn't going to dump an old friend because of Rat whining.

BUT NOOOOOO, they just keep flailing around.

A long time ago, back in 2000, I read a British article about how the President has some Scots blood. As a half-Scot myself, I will tell you that loyalty is ingrained in the heritage; despite my family's feuding on occasions over politics, we are remarkably close-knit and will defend each other from outsiders no matter what.

The President will NEVER turn on a friend. He would resign himself before he would do that.

Lots and lots of hearsay in this article. It almost sounds like the writer is jealous of Rove. I still don't understand the motive in the Plame case. Why would anyone think outing Plame (even though she was already out) would be in retaliation to Joe Wilson's report. How could this possibly hurt him?? Actually he is benefiting from it.

Funny how he didn't clarify that Guerrero did NOT have a degree - much less a Phi Beta Kappa graduate.
John McCain? A thinking person did not need Operative Rove to tell them that McCain was a loose cannon. And McCain himself has proved thinking persons correct since.
Ann Richards? Wrong on that one too. George Bush himself was the reason she lost that election.
This column is nothing but spitwads against Rove.

Aldrich Aimes, a CIA former officer outed her years ago in the 1990's. This is nothing more than a witch hunt by the liberals falling flat on its face as the MSM fains outrage to promote the Democrats agenda, like peas in a pod.

We are told to believe that Karl Rove is an evil genieus yet a bumbling loose lipped idiot, the same thing they said about President Bush.

Excellent idea! Zell would have a good time, and the press would have their heads explode.

Hey, how about a rotating press officer? One day Zell, the next day Ann Coulter, then Mark Levin, then Dennis Miller. By the time Scott had his turn in the rotation, I bet they would be a whole lot more polite to him!

Hey guys, Im a young republican, and maybe its just that I'm young and confused, or maybe its because I can't get a straight fix on this story. But my question is, wtf happened? Was there a leak? What did Rove do? What is the straight story? All I hear is that there was a leak of a CIA agents wife's name that was undercover. Why are the Dem's making a big deal of this? I feel as if them making a big deal out of it would be putting the identity of the agent more in jeapordy than Carl Rove saying the ladies name. Im just confused. So did Carl Rove say, "Oh, so and so is an undercover CIA agent"

WHY CANT THE MEDIA GIVE ME A STRAIGHT STORY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED?

Thanks,
Pork

Very good, it describes Rove to a "T". The Democrats try and try and they just don't have it, or get it. They are in a very bad state of affairs when they have nothing to chase except this issue and its going nowhere, in fact, it'll backfire on them. (once again)

The leadership of the Dim party constantly attacks, mocks, ridicules, and belittles my faith, beliefs, and lifestyle. Is there any wonder that they do the same to Mr. Rove?

According to Dims, Rove is a liar, a cheat and I am small minded, easily manipulated, a bigot, homophobic, and just plain stoooopid.

Is this their way of wooing a vote from me? If Mr. Rove is under attack from these people, then I feel I am in good company.

I almost feel sorry for them, but they are like the wounded guy who tries to squeeze off one more shot before before they bleed to death instead of making peace with their maker. They are the refuse swirling at the bottom of the toilet bowl the needs a second flush.

So many attacks and assaults that have been much to do about nothing have left them bitter and angry. Sore loser does not begin to describe them.

At least when the emperor realized he had no clothes he had the sense to run and hide. These people seem to embrace humiliation like a teddy bear. They can't get enough of it. They drink deeply and often. They will never grow weary of running in to themselves.

" Obviously the leftist-MSM thinks the public is dumb and has no other access to facts. So 1970's of them."

It's like Dan Rather's on air response the Friday after he showed the fake memos. He used his newscast to show brief pictures of superscript from the seventies (which looked nothing like the document) to prove the documents were authentic. In the previous century it would have convinced enough people.

In the 21st century there are too many sources available to enough of the public that one cannot get away with it any more. The truth WILL percolate to the surface, and quickly.

The Dems and MSM haven't a chance with this sort of smear any more.
