Karl Rove should RESIGN NOW!

I can't believe that this SOB would still try to use 9-11 for political gain and now he says that liberals don't understand the consequences of 9-11 and want American troops to fail.

Speaking in a Manhattan ballroom just a few miles north of ground zero, Karl Rove said on Wednesday night that the Democratic party did not understand the consequences of the Sept. 11 attacks.


"Conservatives saw what happened to us on 9/11 and said we will defeat our enemies. Liberals saw what happened to us and said we must understand our enemies."

Rove also denounced Sen. Dick Durbin's comments comparing interrogation at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp to the methods of Nazis and other repressive regimes. He said the statements have been broadcast throughout the Middle East, putting American troops in greater danger. Durbin has since apologized for the remarks.

"No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals," Rove said.

This is complete BS and it's time for liberals to fight back against this type of wingnut rhetoric. These jerks shamelessly use 9-11 anytime their back is against the wall and NOW their using 9-11 to attack liberals and say that we want our troops to die in Iraq?!?

F-U Rove! You're the most despicable politician I've ever known (man, I thought Gary Franks was bad). You should be ashamed of yourself for making those sickening remarks and btw, who the f#@% made you the spokeperson for the 3,000+ people who died on that horrible day.
If a Democrat said those words, you wingnuts would be demanding an apology. Look at what they did to Durbin after he told the truth about Gitmo (I'm STILL pissed that he apologized). Funny how the Republicans jumped down Durbin's throat but give Rove a pass (where are you Frist, McCain, DeLay, Santurum).

I'm happy that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is demanding that Rove resign and Democrats should use statements like this against the Republicans next fall and make them pay for their arrogance.

I am deeply disturbed and disappointed that the Bush White House would continue to use the national tragedy of September 11th to try and divide the country. The lesson our country learned on that terrible morning is that we are strongest when we unite together, that America’s power is in its common spirit of democracy and freedom.

“Karl Rove should immediately and fully apologize for his remarks or he should resign. The lesson of September 11th is not different for conservatives, liberals or moderates. It is equally shared and was repeatedly demonstrated in the weeks and months following this tragedy as Americans of all backgrounds and their elected representatives rallied behind the victims and their families, united in our common determination to bring to justice those responsible for these terrible attacks.

“It is time to stop using September 11th as a political wedge issue. Dividing our country for political gain is an insult to all Americans and to the common memory we all carry with us from that day. When it comes to standing up to terrorists, there are no Republicans or Democrats, only Americans. The Administration should be focused on uniting Americans behind our troops and providing them a strategy for success in the war on terror and the conflict in Iraq. I hope the president will join me in repudiating these remarks and urge Mr. Rove to take appropriate action to right this terrible wrong.”
