Dan, John and I just finished listening to Karl Rove at the Reagan Library. Thanks to Princess Leah for joining us as our date for the night!
Rove gave a rousing reminder why Reagan was such a great leader and how he changed America’s trajectory in economic, security and national purpose.
Rove also gave a blistering attack on how Obama campaigned as a centrist but is governing as a leftist. America was duped by a con man — those are my words. The facts that Rove articulated about the fiscal impact of healthcare reform are chilling.
Rove is still the optimist. I wish I shared his sunny view that we can change the course. But as Rove said, like Reagan, I have to have faith in the American people.
Before the speech, I took these photos around the Reagan Library.
The words on Reagan’s grave above are ones that he spoke during life: “I know in my heart that man is good/ That what is right will always eventually triumph/ And there is purpose and worth to each and every life.”
