EVERY WORD OUT OF ROVE'S MOUTH IS A LIE, INCLUDING "AND" AND "THE"
From Adam Nagourney's article "In McCain's Uphill Battle, Winning Is an Option," in today's New York Times;
"It's an uphill battle," said Karl Rove, who was the chief strategist for President Bush going back to Mr. Bush's first run for governor in 1994. "But I remember seven days out from the Texas gubernatorial race, and everybody was like, 'It's all over, we're cooked!' And we won by seven points."
New York Times, November 7, 1994:
The final poll by The Dallas Morning News and The Houston Chronicle, based on 1,297 interviews conducted through last Thursday, showed Mr. Bush with 46.6 percent and Ms. Richards with 44.3 percent.
New York Times, November 2, 1994:
A recent Texas Poll showed Ms. Richards leading by 12 points among women, but trailing by 17 points among men.
Dallas Morning News, November 8, 1994:
if the pollsters are right, this year's contest promises to be another squeaker, a real down-to-the-quick nail-biter.
See any resemblance between Bush's poll numbers in '94 and McCain's now? Me either.
