GOP-Bush-RNC-Managed Missing Emails in 2007: The Media Basically Ducked

Can't Hide from the Public Record Despite GOP Efforts Otherwise

This story from here. My introduction is simple:

The GOP has mastered the duck and dodge PR game and this flashback proves it beyond any rational explanation. The headlines from here:

When 5 Million Bush White House Emails Were Lost (kept in RNC private accounts) It Did Not Even Trigger a Small Media Shrug, just a Yawn

I ask: Why is that? Short answer: GOP hypocrisy on a huge scale.

Even for the Geo. W. Bush White House that was badly stumbling through his sixth year in office, an on April 12, 2007, was shocking.

Responding to congressional demands for emails in connection with its investigation into the GOP/partisan firing of eight U.S. attorneys, the White House announced that as many as five million emails, covering a two-year span, had been lost.

The man at the center at that time was none other than Karl Christian Rove, Mr. Bush’s senior White House adviser.

Rove in essence says he can’t recall the contents of those lost emails. However, he has also proven that he can cite all congressional election results in percentages dating back 30 years but not what emails he had deleted recently. What is the best label for that thinking: genius or slick political operative?  Easy peasy as they say. A no-brainer in fact.

Thanks for stopping by.
