Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight

Courage and Consequence - Karl RoveCourage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight

From the moment he entered the country, Karl Rove shook America's political stage. At age 22, he led the National College Republicans and turned a Democrat-dominated Texas into a bastion for Republicans. He launched George W. Bush to national reputation by deposing a popular Democratic governor, and then orchestrated a win of the GOP White House at a time when voters had little reason to throw away the reigning party. For the technical victory after the unlikely victory Rove was known as "the architect".

Because of his success, Rove was attacked throughout his career, from everything from campaigning chicane to ideological splitting. In this righteous memoir, Rove responds to critics, passionately articulates his political philosophy, and defends the choices he made in the election campaign and the White House. As the record progresses, Rove picks up Democratic leaders like Harry Reid and Tom Daschle, who act cynically or sneakily behind closed doors, and even Republicans who lacked the spine at key moments
