Karl Rove Hits The Mark On The Oil Spill, Sestak-Gate

Say what you want about Karl Rove, he is one astute political animal. In the above clip, he hangs Chris Dodd (D-Countrywide) out to dry for attempting to put the BP oil spill on the Bush Administration, roasts Obama for constantly blaming his problems on the previous administration and weighs in on Sestak-Gate:

Obama Administration officials last year short-circuited the process and allowed Transocean and British Petroleum to drill this well to put this unit at the place that they were drilling and to do so without full environmental review and a full safety review.

It was Obama Administration officials.

Chris Dodd, you know, is reaching back. I wish he knew the facts. He clearly knew that facts when he got that improper mortgage from people he was writing legislation benefits for, but he doesn't have the facts known here.

In fact, it was on the front page of the New York Times....that the decision to allow this rig to drill in this place was granted last year with expedited approvals without a full environmental and safety review by Obama Administration officials.{...}

Look, the American people don't elect a president with the hope that he's going to spend most of his time blaming his predecessor. They elect a president to get things done.

I think it hurts President Obama. It makes him look weak. You know, this constant 'poor us, we were handed a bad thing, all the problems are the problems of the previous administration.' You know, look, when Bush came into office he had a recession.

You didn't hear Bush go out and say, 'Well you know Clinton, the stock market peaked in March of 2000. NASDAQ lost 50% of it's value. We were headed to a recession and it's all Clinton's fault and we are cleaning up after the Clinton mess.'

The American people don't want to hear that. So, look, that's fine if they want to do that because I think it hurts them. It diminishes them. It makes them look weak and pitiful and that's not what the American people want.

The reason why the President has such a low approval rating when he should have high ones, is because of the way he conducts himself in office.

please helps me write more gooder!
