A lot of Reagan’s “supporters” did all they could to destroy him till it became apparent that he was beating them. Then they latched on like leeches in a mudhole and have claimed him to be a middle of the road moderate ever since.
He wasn’t perfect but his biggest fault is that he was too trusting.
Next thing you’ll know, Rove will claim he drew Patton’s battle plans for Messina.
So Karl Rove initially supported GHWB and then fell in line to support Reagan. That’s not surprising seeing as the Bush Family paid all his family’s bills for most of Rove’s life.
I don’t trust Rove from a policy perspective nor from campaigning perspective. His judgment in both areas has been shown to be lacking. Now, he wants to be King of the Moderates and push aside the Tea Party. The Tea Party movement could use some political mentoring, but not from the likes of him. The Tea Party needs someone with the skills the departed Breitbart to navigate the new media, not a conventional, old tech Repub establishment guy.
One thing is for sure. If Reagan was around today then he would have Rove tossed out on his Butt.
Besides S/H-in around tejas pols. Did this guy ever manage a successful campaign even dog catcher and all that goes with it ?-
If the information in this article is correct, Rove is guilty of misrepresentation. This ought, in a just world, to cost him his position with Fox News.
There is a reason most freepers call him “Tokyo Rove”....
Rove should have been the director of trash... aka a janitor...
He is a FRAUD!!
It appears that Rove is taking his ques from the Liar in Chief himself. After all, Obama can’t open his mouth without pure lies spewing forth. Perhaps he figures if Obama can do it and get away with it why not do it himself. Next he will saying the only reason Reagan won was because of his brainy stewardship.
“Karl Rove campaigned in 1980 against Ronald Reagan and for George Herbert Walker Bush in the Republican presidential primary in Texas.
Rove is a liar. He has always been on the side of the globalist big government types and opposed to real American patriotic conservatives. Both Bushes worked against conservatives.
