Is there no limits to the depth of depravity of President in Fact, Karl Rove? Remember that President, by Supreme Court edict, George Bush has appointed Rove to head the Katrina recovery effort.
From the Mississippi Clarion-Ledger. Full Story here.
“The Clarion-Ledger has obtained a copy of an internal e-mail the U.S. Department of Justice sent out this week to various U.S. attorneys’ offices: “Has your district defended any cases on behalf of the (U.S.) Army Corps of Engineers against claims brought by environmental groups seeking to block or otherwise impede the Corps work on the levees protecting New Orleans? If so, please describe the case and the outcome of the litigation.'”
What became of the republican “talking point” that now is not the time for affixing blame for the Katrina response debacle? None-the-less, the Justice Department, not to mention its apologists at the “National Review Online,” got it wrong. As the article notes, the levees subject of environmental law suits were Mississippi River levees, not the Lake Pontchartrain levees that failed and flooded New Orleans. So not only is Karl Rove depraved, he’s also inept, except, of course, when it comes to smearing folks who don’t agree with him.
