Even Rove Thinks McCain is Lying

All I can say is, wow.

The former Bush chief strategist, appearing on Fox News Sunday, said that John McCain had stretched the truth in his recent round of attacks against Barack Obama, in the process opening up the Arizonan to a round of effective counter-attacks.

“McCain has gone in his ads one step too far, and sort of attributing to Obama things that are, you know, beyond the 100-percent-truth test,” said Rove. “Both campaigns ought to be careful about… there ought to be an adult who says: ‘Do we really need to go that far in this ad? Don’t we make our point and get broader acceptance and deny the opposition an opportunity to attack us if we don’t include that one little last tweak in the ad?'”

For Karl Rove, partisan hack and the brain behind the Republican lying machine, to criticize McCain is big.

  1. Well, when Karl Rove calls you a liar, what the heck does that say about you?

    McCain’s twin acts of alienating the press and running an almost exclusively negative campaign is a combination that might ruin his chances. The media is having a field day reporting on his lies and negativity, there are stories every day.
