Dreaming of Rove

Karl Rove consulente elettorale di Silvio Berlusconi per aiutarlo a battere la sinistra fu notizia troppo bella per essere vera. Infatti, smentita del premier a parte (che lascia il tempo che trova), lo stratega delle vittorie elettorali di George W. Bush dice cose come queste, in questo modo splendido (le ha dette appena ieri al meeting del Republican National Committee):
«To those Democrats who want to take the money out of your pocket by opposing making the tax cuts permanent, our response is: No You Don't. To those Democrats who want to raise your taxes in order to increase the size of government, our response is: No You Won't. And to those Democrats who say they can spend your money better than the American people can, our response is: No You Can't».

Soprattutto, Rove ottiene risultati come questi:
«In 2000, George W. Bush ran against an incumbent Vice President who had loads of national experience, a reputation as a great debater, and with a very strong economy on his side - and yet the then-Governor of Texas won a very close race.
In the 2002 mid-terms, President Bush and Republicans ran against history - and prevailed. President Bush became the first President in more than a half-century - and only the second President ever - to have mid-term gains in both houses of Congress - and for the first time, the party of the President captured control of the Senate in a mid-term.

In 2004 George W. Bush, a Republican and proud conservative, won the Presidency for a second time, receiving the most votes in history. He is the first President since FDR to be re-elected while his party gained seats in the House and Senate - and the first Republican President since 1924 to get re-elected while re- electing Republican House and Senate majorities.
Republicans have now won seven of the last 10 Presidential elections. They hold 55 Senate seats; 231 House seats; and 28 governorships
».
Ovvio che la notizia del suo ingaggio da parte del premier non potesse che essere priva di fondamento. Del resto, se i repubblicani americani possono fregiarsi del titolo di "partito delle idee", che nessun partito della Cdl può attribuirsi, un motivo c'è.

PS: Gli antiamericani potranno capire bene qui cosa ne pensiamo di tutto il casino montato contro Karl Rove da liberal e sinistra.

"The GOP Remains the Party of Ideas" by Karl Rove.
