Karl Rove was the #2 guy at the White House as Deputy Chief of Staff and Kavanaugh was about the #6 guy and worked for Rove. I’ll bet I could find pictures of your boss being friendly to you if I knew who you were and visa versa. Right?

I hope he is on our side.
Too many of the Bush people are not.
We are losing our country.

According to what I heard earlier, he was hired as their token conservative - so don’t read too much into this.
