Rove memo found in Nixon archive
WASHINGTON, July 14 (UPI) -- Even as a 22-year-old, U.S. Republican political operative Karl Rove had a propensity for slicing and dicing the electorate, it was reported Saturday.
The New York Times said it found early evidence of Rove's organizational ability tucked inside 78,000 pages of Nixon administration documents released last week by the National Archives.
Within those pages is a nine-page memo written in 1973 by Rove, who would go on to become the architect of George W. Bush's rise to political power.
Rove outlines for Anne Armstrong, then co-chairman of the Republican National Committee, how to strengthen the GOP by motivating students.
Rove suggests having college Republican clubs show "nonpolitical films for fundraising (e.g. John Wayne flicks, 'Reefer Madness')," the latter a reference to a torrid anti-marijuana propaganda film later revived as a cult film.
In a telephone interview Friday, Rove, now 56, pleaded forgetfulness. "God, this is 1973!" he said. "You work the math. I don't remember it all."
Armstrong later became ambassador to Britain and then returned to Texas, where she today owns the ranch where Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot a fellow hunter last year.
Rove Advises Lincoln On Civil War Matters
LOL. What next?
Rove probably can’t remember it because he was perfecting his weather machine.
OMG, the EEEEEeeeeevil Rove-monster!!!
Rove is an evil genius.
Weather machines, Tsunami machines... he was involved in every conspiracy that ever was since Nixon...
That’s why we like him.
What’s this doing on Science Daily?
The circle of conspiracy. Rove was arranging for Cheney’s shooting incident more than 30 years ago.
What’s this post doing for the umpteenth time today? Moderator!!!!!!!! Old news, move on, folks, nothing here.
Science Daily has a Breaking News section.
Imagine, trying to lure young voters in with ENTERTAINMENT!
The diabolical cunning of the man.
Thanks. That was great. Boy, I remember how much I dislike Dan Rather.
that youtube video, certainly put things in perspective. Look at our cbs cynically attack Republicans back then, by Dan Rather
Dan Rather still sucks
Rove helped Caesar.
A stroll down memory laned...
Just wonderin’. Thanks!
I saw a 25 year retrospective on Watergate where they condemned Daniel Sagretti (remember the Nixon “dirty trickster”) for ordering pizzas and having them delivered to a Democrat function that was supposed to be black tie or something. Twenty five years later, and that was the most sinister thing they could recount!
