Political consultant as the Oz-like man behind the curtain.
4 November 2004 | by (Denver, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Behind the scenes political consultant who has carefully crafted W's image and choices at any cost. Only a 9 if politics and propaganda are subjects you are interested in. Follows Rove's career since pre-Bush days as he steps on people and does dirty tricks to defeat the many "other guys" he or his clients go against, quite often ending their careers. As a resident of Texas until 2000, I was more familiar with some of the players and "plays" in the first half and enjoyed hearing the story behind the story. As a mediocre governor, and my governor at the time, I was amazed when "W" got his parties nod in 2000 and now I see how he accomplished this. A bit slow or off the path in places, it still makes it's point very well. By the way if Robert Novak isn't held accountable for exposing the CIA operative, there is truly no justice in this world.
