A quotation from Karl Rove

This is nothing truly groundbreaking. (My little observation or the quote.) I just thought it was interesting that I read something from Karl Rove the day after he announced his resignation.

Here it is, as published on the Aug. 14 page of the Freedom Forum's First Amendment desk calendar:

"If more people in government knew about the press and more people in the press knew about governing, the world would be a better place to live."

I'm not sure "The Architect," as his buddy and boss sometimes calls him, is a huge fan of the media, but his statement is true. The people who run the government are supposed to realize the laws that protect the ability for us to report information through our jobs are as important as those they often quote or use to protect themselves. But we, as journalists, should also be educated enough to properly cover these people and what they do.

Time will tell if Rove or anyone else in the Bush administration will be remembered for anything like those words from 2005.

This may be the first time I have agreed with anything Karl Rove said.

I agree with your blog, Adam. However, you might have gotten even more hits if you had referred to Rove as "Turd Blossom" instead of "The Architect." :)

LOL! Right on, Pedro! Will you be my new agent? That is brilliant marketing. Long time no see! How's the land man business? Say hi to my buddy, Hayes.
