He ran the national College Republicans at 22, and turned a Texas dominated by Democrats into a bastion for Republicans. He launched George W. Bush to national renown by unseating a popular Democratic governor, and then orchestrated a GOP White House win at a time when voters had little reason to throw out the incumbent party. For engineering victory after unlikely victory, Rove became known as "the Architect." Because of his success, Rove has been attacked his entire career, accused of everything from campaign chicanery to ideological divisiveness. In this frank memoir, Rove responds to critics, passionately articulates his political philosophy, and defends the choices he made on the campaign trail and in the White House.--From publisher description. 590 Gift of Dr. Gary Jason. 600 10 Rove, Karl. 600 10 Bush, George W.|q(George Walker),|d1946- 610 20 Republican Party (U.S. : 1854- )|vBiography. 650 0 Political consultants|zUnited States|vBiography. 650 0 Political campaigns. 651 0 United States|xPolitics and government|y1993-2001. 651 0 United States|xPolitics and government|y2001-2009. 910 js 201309
