Gee, looks like Rove had his hands in the war pretty deep.

Many people inside and outside the White House feared Rove, a number of them truly admired him (professionally and personally), but of very few can it be said that they ever trusted him.
-No one but the Boy King Bush trusted Rove.

"'We live in a poisonous atmosphere in which Democrats . . . are engaged in a wave of investigations and requests for documents that ill-serve the country and serve as an excuse for them to investigate rather than legislate,' Rove said."
-A quest fror documents Rove himself destroyed - Opps
