There was major political theater involving President Bush’s former chief of staff Karl Rove. A protestor tried to arrest Rove for treason Tuesday morning while he was speaking at the Mortgage Bankers Association Convention, continuing in San Francisco.
There were three protests during a very lively back and forth between former senate majority leader George Mitchell and Karl Rove. Rove blamed the Democrats for everything wrong with the economy.
A protestor tried to smack handcuffs on Karl Rove, but Rove slapped back, and the woman was taken off stage.
There was also this interesting observation from Karl Rove:
“So the regulators in 2005 were the Republicans and the deregulators, the anti-regulators, the let them do anything they want crowd, were all Democrats – with all due respect,” said Rove.
