KARL ROVE served as Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush from 2000-2007 and Deputy Chief of Staff from 2004-2007.
Karl has been described by respected author and columnist Michael Barone in U.S. News & World Report as "…unique…no Presidential appointee has ever had such a strong influence on politics and policy, and none is likely to do so again anytime soon."
Washington Post columnist David Broder has called Karl a master political strategist whose "game has always been long term…and he plays it with an intensity and attention to detail that few can match."
Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard, has called Karl “the greatest political mind of his generation and probably of any generation.…He knows history, understands the moods of the public, and is a visionary on matters of public policy.”
Before Karl became known as “The Architect” of President Bush’s 2000 and 2004 campaigns, he was president of Karl Rove & Company, an Austin-based public affairs firm. His clients included over 75 Republican U.S. Senate, Congressional, and gubernatorial candidates in 24 states.
Karl is a Fox News contributor, writes weekly for The Wall Street Journal and is a Newsweek columnist.
In his new memoir, Courage and Consequence, Karl Rove takes readers behind the scenes of two presidential campaigns—and into the heart of the Bush White House in war and controversy.
With never-before-told details about his own groundbreaking career, the legacy of the Bush presidency, and the story of a nation under attack, Rove sets the record straight, explodes myths, responds frankly to critics, and passionately articulates why he made the choices he did as a conservative in the center of politics.
