Karl Rove: Architect of Socialism?

Responding to Michael Steele — and agreeing with Steele that a Republican “litmus test” is a bad idea — legendary conservative fundraiser Richard Viguerie wrote this:

The current Republican leadership has consistently supported our national slide to socialism. I’m talking about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader John Boehner, and the leading architect of Republican endorsed socialist-statism, former Bush White House political advisor Karl Rove.

Viguerie’s application of the “s-word” to McConnell, Boehner and Rove is sure to spark controversy. In his blog post, Viguerie specifically names the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003 and the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the Wall Street bailout that doomed John McCain to defeat last year.

Some would say that it is unfair to use “socialism” to describe those GOP-supported policies. But if conservatives are going to call Barack Obama’s policies socialist, then it’s hard to argue with Viguerie’s consistency in applying the “s-word” to big-government Republicans.
