The More Rove and Cheney Speak, The More Attention Brought to the Failed Policies of the Past Eight Years
Washington, DC – Last night on Fox News Channel, Karl Rove called President Obama arrogant - an incredible statement from a man who helped lead one of the most secretive and arrogant Presidential Administration's in American History. Rove's comments, which only highlight the failed and arrogant policies of the past eight years which have left America less safe and in the grips of the worst economic crisis in decades, comes on the heels of former Vice President Cheney's criticisms of President Obama's national security policies. Cheney's comments were widely viewed to have backfired as they highlighted the failure of the Bush Administration to successfully conclude either of two wars or to capture, kill or bring to trial the perpetrators of 9/11.
“If Karl Rove wants to call someone arrogant, perhaps he and Dick Cheney should look in the mirror," said DNC Communications Director Brad Woodhouse. "It was, after all, the Administration he worked for and helped lead that left America entangled in two wars, tarnished our reputation aboard, squandered a budget surplus and drove the American economy into the deepest economic crises since the Great Depression by insisting on their arrogant, 'our way or the highway,' ideological approach to domestic and foreign policies. Arrogance was a staple of the Bush-Cheney-Rove approach to politics and policy - eschewing accountability, blaming others and failing to level with the American people. The only thing the America people are interested in right now is the type of measured, informed action the President detailed last night to stabilize and grow the economy, improve health care and education, create green jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. They are not interested in the musings of the men who, more than anyone else, are responsible for creating the challenges we currently face.”
