"Six years into President Bush’s tenure, White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove has developed a mixed reputation among Republicans on Capitol Hill, many of whom view him as both the GOP’s greatest electoral tactician of the decade and, increasingly, as the mastermind behind some of the party’s major policy and political fiascos," Erin P. Billings and Susan Davis write for Roll Call.
The paper asked Minority Whip Trent Lott (R-Miss) if he believes Rove "still holds the same stature among Republicans that he once enjoyed."
"Certainly not," Lott told Roll Call. "Obviously, I’m not a fan."Guess it's hard to be a fan of someone who doesn't meet the minimal moral, developmental, civil, and constitutional standards for being a fellow human-American.
