Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove's Secret Kingdom of Power by Craig Unger
Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove's Secret Kingdom of Power

Beth Spencer, November 10, 2012

"The epic 2012 presidential contest between President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney represents the stunning comeback of GOP boss Karl Rove, the brilliant political operator whose scorched-earth partisanship infamously earned him the moniker “Bush’s Brain” and provoked some observers to label him as dangerous to American democracy. How, after leaving the Bush administration in disgrace, did Rove rise again, and what does it mean that he is back in power? This timely, meticulous account by New York Times bestselling investigative reporter Craig Unger provides the surprising and disturbing answers."

Stunning comeback? Rise again? His publisher may want to dial back the ballyhoo. Ol' Turd Blossom just spent almost half a billion bucks LOSING his guy the presidential race, despite district gerrymandering, vote-flipping machinery, and a cadre of Koch whores helping him out. I hope he loses a bunch more on this poorly conceived book.
