...random thoughts after a long day working on my taxes.
I FREAKING hate doing taxes. I hate PAYING taxes even more. (Thank goodness that my pal and hard-core CPA Steve Moskowitz here in San Francisco takes the job and makes it spotless for the IRS.)
Somebody, anybody, PLEASE campaign on a flat tax reform.
But I digress.
I was watching Bill O'Reilly's re-broadcast tonight, trying to catch up on the video from General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker's appearance before Congress on Capitol Hill. (Go back and read this link after you finish mine. You'll laugh. I did.)
So I am thinking to myself-- Wow!
Fox News has made a stunningly brilliant move in hiring Karl Rove as a commentator.
KARL ROVE UNLEASHED.
Why wasn't this Karl Rove (the one I saw with the graphs and goofy erase-a-board) out there for the past 7 and a half years talking to the American public the way I saw him this evening?
This guy can COMMUNICATE. He's witty, smart, personable, and slays the Democrats and their ridiculous arguements on every subject, especially the one nearest and dearest to my heart --The War on Terror.
The Bush Administration could NOT communicate.
The Bush Administration made some stupid, stupid decisions early on that resulted in the Lefty's re-defining why we went into Iraq, why we stay there, and how it will affect generations to come if we prematurely leave the battlefield.
It's legacy building time for President Bush. Rove is out there now, correcting the record in an understandable way.
But Rove (and others) let so many opportunities go by, dissing conservatives who wanted to help them (including me) by stiff-arming us when the going got tough.
To quote my teenager - "Whatever."
