Remember back to 2004, Rove’s behind-the-scenes mantra was “No More War in ‘04.”

He’ll deny it now, but he was going to his close friend Grover Norquist’s Wednesday meetings telling conservative policy wonks that they needed to get the war off the front pages to be able to push their domestic agenda.

This was by design. It wasn’t a mere mistake. It was an irresponsible miscalculation in which he threw our war effort under the bus for pure politics. And if you look at their “compassionate conservative” domestic policies, it leaves you wondering, “What for?”

And people should remember that part of those politics was immigration “reform,” which Rove is every bit as bad on as Obama, though he ducks the issue now. That too was a serious “mistake,” that wasn’t truly a “mistake,” but a political miscalculation designed to payback Hispanic voters for helping Bush in Texas.

Yes, GWB’s shameful attempt to shove amnesty down our throats is an ugly blot on an otherwise fine presidency.
