About this title

Synopsis:

America's most brilliant political mastermind recounts his controversial journey through Republican politics and into George W. Bush's White House. From the moment he set foot on it, Karl Rove has rocked America's political stage. He ran the national College Republicans at twenty-two, and turned a Texas dominated by Democrats into a bastion for Republicans. He launched George W. Bush to national renown by unseating a popular Democratic governor, and then orchestrated a GOP White House win at a time when voters had little reason to throw out the incumbent party. For engineering victory after unlikely victory, Rove became known as "the Architect." Because of his success, Rove has been attacked his entire career, accused of everything from campaign chicanery to ideological divisiveness. In this frank memoir, Rove responds to critics, passionately articulates his political philosophy, and defends the choices he made on the campaign trail and in the White House. In the course of putting the record straight, Rove takes on Democratic leaders like Harry Reid and Tom Daschle who acted cynically or deviously behind closed doors, and even Republicans who lacked backbone at crucial moments. Among other controversial topics Rove addresses, he sets the record straight on: -The facts of his mother's suicide and reports of his father's alleged homosexuality -The accusation that he bugged his own office in Texas -The real story of how George W. Bush defeated governor Ann Richards -The details of Bush's stealth campaign to win the White House in 2000 -Why Bush cratered in New Hampshire but prevailed in South Carolina in 2000 -How Bush chose Dick Cheney as his presidential running mate -How the Bush campaign managed Bush's DUI -The defection of Vermont Senator Jim Jeffords -The frustrating challenges of Hurricane Katrina -The facts behind Rove's painful three years fending off a federal indictment, and -Why Obama is wrong on healthcare.

About the Author:

Karl Rove served as Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush from 2000–2007 and Deputy Chief of Staff from 2004–2007. He now writes a weekly op-ed for The Wall Street Journal and is a Fox News contributor. Before he became known as “The Architect” of President Bush’s 2000 and 2004 campaigns, Rove was president of Karl Rove + Company, an Austin-based public affairs firm that was involved in over seventy-five campaigns for Republican candidates for president, governor and senator, as well as handling non-partisan causes and non-profit groups.
