It’s Rove, Not Rush

BY FRANK P. BELCASTRO

The real intellectual force behind the Republican Party is still Karl Rove.

Recently, on television he was, calmly, lucidly, and shamelessly trying to eviscerate President Obama’s proposals to get us out of the economic mess – without ever once acknowledging that he was one of the prime architects of the mess.

Having Rove on to pontificate about the economy is like having Bernie Madoff on to offer advice about investing.

Frank P. Belcastro lives in Dubuque, IA and is a regular contributor to The Oklahoma Observer

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
