Duffy also challenged Ata’s testimony regarding what Rezko told him about Karl Rove and an Illinois GOP operative, Robert Kjellander, plotting to replace Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. Duffy asked Ata, “you believe Tony Rezko could actually influence President Bush?” Ata, replied, “No.” Duffy followed by saying, “Well, the president chooses the U.S. attorney, right?” Ata replied, “Yes.”

“So you’re suggesting that Mr. Rezko had the influence and power to influence the president?” Ata replied, “Tony Rezko informed me that Bob Kjellander was working with Karl Rove to change the U.S. attorney in Chicago.” Karl Rove’s attorney denies this claim

The 11th thing I did not know is why the eff' we are worried about a pissant like Rove right now?

I am far more worried about Iran, Israel, a communist marxist in the White Hut, George Soros pulling the strings, the media being complicit in the demise of our country, a planted "Slut" at Columbia trying to ruin Rush's life, and a thousand other US ending issues...but hey, let's vet a pundit. Why not....I'm bored with planning to live without money and freedom.

Stop the side shows...Rove is an idiot, yet has become non-consequential. That is, if we let him stay that way.

The Karl Rove/ Ken Mehlman mafia are running the Romney campaign along with The Drudge Report. I wonder what they’re really up to.

Weird that they left that out, if you hadn’t mentioned it, I would have interpreted the article to say they were still married.

Article is from 2007. Divorce was in 2009.

Ken Mehlman is that former GOP faggot who’s running around pushing gay “marriage” these days, isn’t he?

Ashcroft the Pure threw down for Romney this week. They are about GOP-e and getting that gov’t money, in my opinion. It is going to take more than ousting the democrats, we need to clean our house, too. Crooks and globalist on both sides.

I can’t believe this appeared in US New & World reports. The writing is abysmal.

Take the first item:

1. Karl Christian Rove was born on Christmas Day 1950 in Denver. His family moved a lot until settling in Salt Lake City. Rove’s parents divorced when his stepfather, whom he considered his father, came out as gay. Rove would meet his biological father 20 years later.

Was his mother ever married to his father?

“I wonder if he inherited his seething rage against Sarah Palin from his gay stepfather.”

His misogyny is somewhat queen-ish.

rat rove was as responsible as bumbrain bush jr for the mess were in...he was the key advisor who pushed laws that never anticipated how another new president could steal our freedom and undermine our religious culture...that anyone would listen to him and his 40 yr old dumb whiteboard presentations shows that conservatives need help with critical analysis...

the electorate rebelled against this idiot and, but for him and bush, obama would never have been elected

i vomit everytime he shows up on fox...

Rove's gay lisp surfaces whenever he lashes out at Sarah Palin. It's as queer as they come.

Karl Rove and the GOP-e are not conservatives.

Karl Rove is the political genius behind compassionate conservatism. For that unforgivable sin, he should live in sackcloth and ashes on an uninhabited Mediterranean island and never be heard from again.


Definitely.

It appears that Karl Rove’s mom wasn’t married to his biological father and didn’t even tell Karl about it until late in life. Karl’s gay stepfather’s name was Louis Rove.

It could be that his second wife divorced the turd blossom and not the other way around.

Thanks for the clarification, not that it’s any of my business, but it was just a tad confusing.

Oh well, I’m sorry his stepfather was gay (I think that’s the one thing I’d find unforgiveable myself, but then again, why would your gay spouse want to stay with you?), but I hope he was a good dad.

Rove can be quite, quite, annoying and even destructive, but at least he’s not a bum on welfare or in jail, so his parents can take pride in that.
