Karl Rove is out with a new column in the Wall Street Journal called (unabashedly) “How to Stop Socialized Health Care“.
What’s completely hypocritical of this is that Rove was one of the main promoters of the Medicare prescription drug benefit in 2003, which was the biggest move in 40 years toward what Rove now slams as “socialized health care”.
Why does anyone pay attention to this jerk? I do like the suggestion of the Cato Institute (a libertarian think tank):
Karl Rove should have been named Man of the Year at some point by the Democratic National Committee. The political consultant/Bush adviser played a big role in expanding the burden of government, convincing Bush to saddle the nation with fiscal disasters such as the “no-bureaucrat-left-behind” education bill, the corrupt farm bills, the pork-filled transportation bills, and the horrific new entitlement for prescription drugs. He also helped ruin the GOP image with his inside-the-beltway version of “compassionate conservatism,” thus paving the way for big Democratic victories in 2006 and 2008.
