Liar Up-Front


CANYON, Texas—Karl Rove, former deputy chief of staff and senior adviser to President George W. Bush, will speak at 7 p.m. Friday, May 8 at West Texas A&M University as part of the University’s spring commencement activities.

Rove will deliver a pre-commencement address at the First United Bank Center the night before WTAMU’s two commencement exercises on Saturday, May 9. His presentation is open to the University’s 2009 graduates, their friends and family as well as the Texas Panhandle community.

Rove’s appearance at the First United Bank Center is free and open to the public. For more information about WTAMU’s spring commencement activities, call 806-651-2044.


From the official announcement at WT's web page about Karl "LSOS" Rove.

“Karl Rove is a nationally prominent individual who for seven years served in an extremely important position in the Bush administration. He has been referred to as a ‘master political strategist,’ a ‘passionate advocate’ for his positions, and ‘The Architect’ of two successful presidential campaigns,” Dr. J. Patrick O’Brien, WTAMU president, said. “Bringing Karl Rove to the WTAMU campus won’t be without controversy, but this is an individual with tremendous experience and insight in the workings of the executive branch of the U.S. Government. We are excited to have him speak on the WT campus.”

How can we let Rove know he is unwelcome where people believe in our constitution, and democracy?

This POS should be rotting in jail, not on the speaking circuit. He lied to a grand jury about Valerie Plame, and Iraq, the US Attorney purges, etc.

The smug, "boys will be boys, we need diverse speakers" shit coming from the office of the Pres/CEO of WTAMU.

Why not have someone who believes the earth is flat? Or a Grand Dragon of the KKK. Jeff Dahmer is dead, but the unabomber could do a webinar!

Give me a damn break.

More to come on how we are helping to organize a financial and physical protest.

This blog has requested a full list of speakers for 2009. We will see how "diverse" the speakers will be.
