That is what David Kuo, the former second in command in President Bush’s Office of Faith Based Initiatives says that Karl Rove called some of the nations most prominent evangelical leaders according to his new book.
He says some of the nation’s most prominent evangelical leaders were known in the office of presidential political strategist Karl Rove as “the nuts.”
“National Christian leaders received hugs and smiles in person and then were dismissed behind their backs and described as ‘ridiculous,’ ‘out of control,’ and just plain ‘goofy,’” Kuo writes.
More seriously, Kuo alleges that then-White House political affairs director Ken Mehlman knowingly participated in a scheme to use the office, and taxpayer funds, to mount ostensibly “nonpartisan” events that were, in reality, designed with the intent of mobilizing religious voters in 20 targeted races.
I am sure President Bush isn’t going to be too happy about another “tell all” book that pisses off one of the few remaining groups left in his ever dwindling Conservative base.
