Karl Roves Lies About The Left Revealed As Lies (About The Left)

Mystery Pollster pretty much covers it: When Rove claimed that liberals "saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers. In the wake of 9/11, conservatives believed it was time to unleash the might and power of the United States military against the Taliban," he was clearly engaging in that most Bush-like of hobbies, slandering people and lying through his teeth for political gain.

And White House Spokesman Scott McClellan's claim that Rove was only talking about people like "Michael Moore and organizations like," is so incredibly bogus you'd think that Ari Fleischer had said it. Look over the transcripts of what Rove said: he says "liberals," not "Michael Moore and" Look, Mr. McClellan, if you're incapable of telling the truth then why don't you join the Bush administration. O, wait...

But the kicker is that Mystery Pollster shows that in a CBS/New York Times poll from 9/20-23/2001, the question "Do you think the U.S. SHOULD take military action against whoever is responsible for the attacks?" received the following responses from people self-identifying with various political ideologies: "Yes: 84% of liberals, 93% of moderates, 95% of conservatives."

I.e., and this is a point that cannot be made enough times, Karl Rove is a lying prick.
