I really think an educated, highly motivated, courageous and bilingual Iraqi refugee and expatriate is in a much better position to weigh the relative merits of our brutal nonsensical invasion and occupation of Iraq than some well fed entitled Republican with a highly dubious and self serving theory about the inherent good will of Americans in general ("Iraqi student should send Karl Rove a thank you note," Readers respond, Feb. 23). That the letter writer claims the student should thank Karl Rove for his good fortune is like thanking Wall Street Ponzi schemes for one's unemployment.

Hillary Clinton hasn't even thrown her hat into the 2016 presidential ring yet, but Republican tremors over the very thought have already unleashed red flares about her age and health that question her qualifications for the office. It's an old partisan tactic, this time invoked by Karl Rove - the man who brought you George W. Bush, who with neither his age nor his health impeding his election arguably went on to be the worst American president to date with his Iraq invasion in 2003.

Human events are intriguing. So many points of view of the same event demand tolerance if we are going to get along at all. Our guest Ahmed at Goucher College is an emotional reminder of this dilemma of life (" Iraqi student's education goes far beyond Goucher," Feb. 21). I can not imagine the tragedies the people of Iraq have endured since the U.S. led invasion of 2003. Confronting Karl Rove had to be a critical moment of Ahmed's life. In so doing, he joined the long American tradition of protesting war. We the people have always spoke out against war, dating back to the late 1700s during the quasi-war with France during President John Adams' administration.

The slow summer political season is inevitably leading to speculation about what may happen in next year's congressional elections, on which President Barack Obama's prospects for his final two years in the Oval Office may rest. It's widely assumed that if he doesn't somehow gain control of Congress in 2014, he'll wind up with a host of unrealized legislative ambitions, Not content with rehashing that story, the political community is advancing the speculation mill another two years to the 2016 presidential race, when Mr. Obama will watch leading fellow Democrats contest to replace him as the party's nominee.

It's pundit time, again. The 2010-11 Baltimore Speaker Series line-up announced Tuesday morning features a plethora of political heavyweights, capped by a sparring match between Republican Karl Rove and Democrat Howard Dean. The April 26 event will pit Rove, deputy chief of staff for former president George W. Bush, against Dean, the former Vermont governor and candidate for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination. The two will make individual presentations about their experience in politics, and then respond to each other's presentation.

National Democrats said yesterday that Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele should cancel a fund-raising event featuring White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove because of Rove's possible involvement in the leak of the name of a CIA officer. Steele is exploring a bid for U.S. Senate, and a July 26 event in Washington - featuring Rove and hosted by Sen. Elizabeth Dole and the National Republican Senatorial Committee - is expected to be one of his first large-scale money-raising functions. Rove has been under fire in recent days as the possible source who leaked information that Valerie Plame, wife of former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, was a Central Intelligence Agency agent.

Republican strategist Karl Rove's political foes have given him many nicknames, including Darth Vader, the Antichrist and several unfit for print in a family newspaper. "The Architect" is what President Bush called him the morning after they won re-election. That should make him an excellent profile subject. And the Frontline episode "The Architect" is fascinating, but ultimately disappointing. It tells us what Rove has accomplished and what he would like to do. But who Rove is and why he is so devoted to conservatism is underexamined.

WASHINGTON -- Presidential adviser Karl Rove was called again before a federal grand jury yesterday, a surprise appearance signaling that a perjury and obstruction investigation into his role in a CIA leak case remains alive. As the White House was introducing a new press spokesman in an attempt to put a new face on a troubled administration, Rove testified for three hours before the grand jury at the U.S. courthouse in Washington. A special prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald, is investigating whether Rove lied to investigators in connection with the summer 2003 disclosure of the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame.

WASHINGTON - A top assistant to White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove appeared last week before the federal grand jury investigating possible criminal wrongdoing by the Bush administration in the exposing of a CIA operative, a person familiar with the case said yesterday. The interest in Susan Ralston, Rove's longtime executive assistant, was unexplained, but it comes as special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald has been focusing on differences in witness statements made to federal agents and the grand jury investigating who revealed the identity of Valerie Plame.

WASHINGTON - A spy outed. A reporter jailed. And now, a White House operative fingered. Democrats couldn't have spun a more intriguing conspiracy theory around Karl Rove, President Bush's political guru and top adviser, if they'd tried. As Rove emerges as a central figure in an ever-more-provocative case involving the unmasking of a CIA agent, Democrats and liberal groups are seizing on the story as proof of their more sweeping charge that Bush has put partisan loyalty and political advantage ahead of national security.

In a recent commentary, former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. described several examples of what he saw as over-the-top political correctness on college and university campuses ("Campus liberals run amok," Feb. 24). However, one does not need to resort to such extreme examples. An undercurrent of liberal thought runs through day-to-day life on every public college and university campus. There seem to be at least two reasons for this dreadful problem. First, professors are trained to think through issues, and they are charged with teaching students to do so as well.

There was a time when the lines between the practices of politics and journalism were clear-cut. Professional politicians did their thing, which was getting elected and getting others elected. Professional journalists did theirs, writing and telling how the politicians did what they did. Seldom did the two meet in public opinion forums Today, political operatives are regular commentators and analysts on radio, television and the Internet, and journalists of all political persuasions run for public office, sometimes getting elected.

While much is being made of Karl Rove's post-election return to the air this week on Fox, I don't think that's really the news that matters these days at Rupert Murdoch's channel. Reflecting in a way the very post-election GOP malaise that they discussed, both Bill O'Reilly and Rove seemed off their games Wednesday night on "The O'Reilly Factor. " Two of the most self-confident blowhards in American media and political life seemed less confident, less energized, less animated than I have ever seen either when it comes to saying bad things about President Obama.

It was fairly obvious by about 10:15 p.m. Tuesday that most cable and network analysts thought President Obama was going to be re-elected. But they didn't have the data to make the call until 11:17. When that happened at NBC News and CNN, viewers were offered as clear a snapshot as I have seen of the difference between a news gathering operation like CNN and an ideologically driven enterprise like MSNBC. "We've got a really major projection to make right now," CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer said.

In a Chrysler advertisement aired during halftime of Sunday's Super Bowl, actor and director Clint Eastwood says, "I've seen a lot of tough eras, a lot of tough downturns in my life, times when we didn't understand each other. It seems we've lost our heart at times, and the fog of discord, division and blame made it hard to see what lies ahead. But after those trials, we all rallied around what was right and acted as one. " To judge from the reaction he got, we haven't achieved that last stage just yet. Mr. Eastwood was pilloried the next morning by Republican political strategist and Fox News commentator Karl Rove, among others, as a tool of President Barack Obama's re-election strategy.

WASHINGTON - A new partisan firestorm erupted yesterday as Democrats assailed President Bush's top political strategist, Karl Rove, for criticizing liberals for what he deemed their tepid response to the Sept. 11 attacks. The White House said it would not heed Democratic demands for an apology from Rove or a presidential condemnation of the adviser's remarks, and it rejected Democratic charges that Rove's words amounted to a Bush administration attempt to exploit the war on terrorism for political gain.

WASHINGTON - -After years of silence, top Bush administration political adviser Karl Rove went on a public relations offensive Thursday, saying he did nothing wrong in the controversial firings of nine U.S. attorneys and that soon-to-be-released White House documents and his closed-door congressional testimony on the subject will bear that out. Rove's comments, made through his lawyer Robert D. Luskin, prompted immediate charges of foul play by congressional...

Karl Rove spoke at the Johns Hopkins University last week. Mr. Rove delivered the final lecture for the Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, which is entirely student run and sponsored by the university. I am a co-chair of this organization. Unsurprisingly, there was a considerable amount of protest. Karl Rove comes to speak, people are going to dissent. I fully understand. He is a controversial public figure. I have been told that I should be "ashamed" of myself for inviting Mr. Rove to campus.

About 15 protesters were asked to leave a speech by Karl Rove at Johns Hopkins University after staging "organized disruption," a university official said. Some protesters were forcibly removed from the auditorium, said spokeswoman Tracey A. Reeves. The protesters were not believed to be Hopkins students, she said. They were affiliated with the Baltimore offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Shortly after 10 p.m. the group, which goes by the name Occupy Baltimore, shared via Twitter a six-minute YouTube video of the incident.
