A Meeting with Karl Rove and an Interview with Bruce Herschensohn

The Tygrrrr Express has two incredible pieces up, one about his meeting with Karl Rove which is a must read as well as showing people who and what Karl Rove really is.

For those who see Rove as a puppet master pulling strings, Rove made it clear that he knew who the boss was, and it was not him. The President has nicknamed him “Boy Genius,” and “Turd Blossom.” In fact, when Rove would enter the room, President Bush would say to another subordinate, “That idea is so f-ing bad that it must be something Rove came up with.” Sometimes President Bush would say to Rove or one of his other staffers, when they would ramble in business meetings, “Y’all think this is worth wasting the President’s time over?”

Just a teaser...go read the rest.

His second piece is just as fascinating which is his interview with Bruce Herschensohn.

Bruce Herschensohn is a Professor at Pepperdine University.

Bruce Herschensohn has been a television and radio political commentator for the last two decades. After service in the U.S. Air Force he began his own motion picture company, and then was appointed Director of Motion Pictures and Television for the United States Information Agency.
