Karl Rove (born December 25, 1950) was the leading architect behind the ultimately unsuccessful George W. Bush Administration, and the loss of Republican control of Congress in 2006. Robert Novak observed that Rove had become "part of the problem" hindering the Republican Party. He did nothing to avert the disastrous wipe-out of Republicans in the 2008 election.

By 2012, Rove had reinvented himself with funding by Las Vegas casino billionaires for Rove's Super PAC, American Crossroads. Rove married for the third time and was flown on his honeymoon in a private jet owned by a Las Vegas casino mogul.

In August 2012, showing his true colors, Rove unsuccessfully led the charge to try to force pro-life leader Todd Akin to withdraw from the race for the U.S. Senate after Akin had been nominated.

Liberal Newsweek, the Wall Street Journal, and Fox News promote Rove heavily, although it is unclear his political advice and the ads run by his American Crossroads is having any positive effect.

Background

Rove was the Deputy Chief of Staff in the Bush administration. Rove's longtime partnership with George W. Bush dates back to Bush's terms as governor of Texas. Rove ran all of Bush's campaigns for governor and for president.

Rove started his political career early, attending the University of Utah to work in the College Republican National Committee. Often called "the brains behind Bush" or "the Architect," Rove is credited as the chief architect of the 2000 and 2004 presidential campaigns.

Resignation

On August 13, 2007, the Wall Street Journal published an interview with Rove in which he announced that he would be resigning from his position of deputy Chief of Staff at the end of the month. [1] Rove explained the move as motivated by his dedication to his family.
