(CNN) – Enemies of President Bush take heed: Karl Rove is set to name names.
The man widely credited with Bush's two presidential victories says his new book will include an accounting of those in Washington who never accepted the president as a legitimate commander-in-chief.
"I've got behind-the-scenes episodes that are going to show how unreceiving they were of this man as president of the United States," Rove told Cox News in an interview published Sunday. "I'm going to name names and show examples."
Rove signed a deal with publishing giant Simon & Schuster last year, reported be worth over $1.5 million.
In the wide-ranging interview, Rove also suggested the criticisms the president and his aides took were partly because they were not part of the Washington establishment.
"You'll notice there was outrage when it was thought that I was the person behind outing Valerie Plame. And then when it came out that it was the sainted [Deputy Secretary of State] Richard Armitage, there was no interest," Rove said. "I don't remember seeing anybody camped out on his doorstep like they were camped out on mine. [It's]because he was part of the acceptable culture of Washington, and I was not. I was one of those Texans who came up. He was one of those perpetual I'll-scratch-your-back-if-you'll-scratch-mine Washington leakers. "
He's going to name names like he named Valerie Plame. It's a name game and Plame was blamed. A plain shame!
Wine, whine, whine... Will he except blame for anything he did, or just continue to blame everybody else?
Shouldn't he be sharing a bed with OJ?
I find it funny the hate for Karl Rove. Democrats talked about the decisiveness of him, yet Obama (Change agent) appoints Emanuel who is just as divisive if not more than Rove.
And Zandra, if you are going to call someone a loser, you might learn how to spell it. You spelling that wrong kind of makes you look, well like a "looser."
I have absolutely no respect for anyone who feels the need to write a "tell all" book after serving in any President's administration. Who cares? If it was so important to tell the American people these so-called "truths" or "facts", why the hell don't the authors come forward while they're still IN the adminsitration.
Nobody cares after the fact. It's sort of like closing the old barn door after all the horses and cows have gotten out.
I would feel honored if Rove named me. Can you believe we are actually going to have a President who can speak in complete sentences and has a good command of the english language.
This should be good. Now they can go after him and if he can tell all then he cannot plead executive privilege then can he when Congress calls him up.
This idiot who helped mastermind the Iraq debacle should never again be given a public forum–4,000 brave soldiers are dead, 100,000 Iraqi civilians are dead, and a trillion taxpayer dollars have been wasted because of Rove and his cronies.
So he's going to write something that looks like the world's largest phone book?
Yes Karl, please give us the names of those heroes. There were only a prcious few in the last 8 years.
Baha... Bahaha... Bahahahahahahaha...
Way to go Karl! They hate you because you beat them time and time again.
Send the list to the Haig, then the war crime's trial can start!!!!
Step aside, Rove, it's over.
Rove sounds like someone that is getting ready to go to prison, sing song bird sing!
If there's any justice in America, Mr. Rove will soon be on trial for his treasonous deceit and conspiracies and won't be able to tell people that right is wrong and wrong is right any more.
ooh ooh how can I get my name on that list. I never accepted the WORST PRESIDENT EVER as my President.
So he's going to name the entire american public. We can't stand you Karl and I'm sure you know that by now. You should have known when that lady tried to handcuff you on stage and make a citizens arrest. LOL
Karl – Please add my name to the list as well.
Add me ...Jonathan W. Norwood
WOW...Rove comes off as a bitter tired old has been man.....sad....very very sad. Clearly he was ALWAYS slimy...but now, he is just pathetic old news!
Maybe if Bush had acted presidential instead acting like a self centered,
self serving, arrogant, egomaniac he would have been received as presidential.
It is so nice to here from you nice little boys and girls. Your "JACK" of a president Billy Boy Clinton has been crying in his soda for years. I suppose were all bad if we don't believe in your SOCIALIST views! Looks like you all found a home here to sob.....
Will he call the book"Memoirs from Prison"?Is he trying to blackmail people to stay out of prison?Hes going to look good in Orange.
Karl Rove has more money than all of you chumps who hate him. And he will have even $1.5 million more while you chumps struggle to pay your subprime mortgages.
Rove for President! The whining would never stop.
Have fun defending Obama/Pelosi/Reid. When Bush/Cheney/Rove are all gone, who will you chumps blame all your troubles on?
Is it my imagination or does Karl look a lot like "Chucky" in the horror movies?
