Rove Revelations, or Lack Thereof

More

Karl Rove's book came out without the massive drive of public interest and scrutiny that has followed the release of, say, Sarah Palin's "Going Rogue," and there have been no ultra-salacious details revealed about the Bush presidency.

So what Rove's critics are taking away from the book, The Atlantic Wire's Max Fisher finds, is that Rove has revised history--and that this, in itself, reveals something: that Rove's book amounts to spin driven by loyalty to his old bosses, and that this facet of "Courage and Consequence" is just just an extension of what motivated the Bush administration that Rove ran, in part, as the president's chief strategist.
