Karl Rove on Barack Obama

For former Bush mastermind Karl Rove to portray Obama as a Gatsby-esque smoothie, as he did to a group of DC Republicans the other day, was a fascinating piece of race and class voodoo. “Even if you never met him,” Rove said, “You know this guy. He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.”

No wonder his wife’s so mad.

Rove’s comment translates in tactical terms as the weirdly implausible, “If we can’t portray him as an angry black man, what the hell — we’ll portray him as a privileged, elitist, white man.”

Wow…very telling. So what do you think of the translation?

    I don’t have a response to that “comment” because it isn’t an actual quote.

    If you read your source it says:

    Rove’s comment translates in tactical terms as the weirdly implausible, “If we can’t portray him as an angry black man, what the hell — we’ll portray him as a privileged, elitist, white man.”

    Let’s ask some questions about the article instead.

    How can you “translate” something that was spoken in English to something written in English?

    I can understand someone being upset with Rove’s impression of Obama. But, to take his comments and spin them to infer meaning is clearly someone with an agenda.

    My question to you is: Why would you take their “translation” and post it as a direct quote?

    I’m not saying you can’t be pro-Obama on your own blog. What I will say is that it makes me (as a reader) curious what your agenda is. What are you trying to get me to believe and why?

  2. B-Dub…thought is was a direct quote…groggy when I typed it…sounded like something Rove would say. Not trying to get you to believe anything.

    Oh…well that’s a good reason and totally understandable. :) Thank you for clearing that up.

  4. Thanks for pointing it out. MC Rove is used to it…I’m sure.

    None of this really matters because The International Bankers, Rockefella, Rothschilds, Warburg and company, will still call all the shots. The more I think about it Obama, like all Presidents, will only serve as a “figurehead”.

    The elitists are not about to relinquish their power over the entire world regardless of who`s President. However, they may not have much to rule in the near future because America is under divine judgement.

    The floods, storms and fires are no accident. These are the signs of the times along with the falling economy. Gas prices, oil prices, food prices, etc. are all a part of the domino effect. America, as we know it, is on its way out.

    The Most High is collecting payment on all of America`s atrocities. It is, however, the only way that true peace can be attained on The Earth. Even if Obama becomes President he`ll be the leader of a criminal enterprise.

    This system has to be destroyed for it is the synogague of Satan. A new system has to be brought into reality in order for the world to realize true peace…
