Karl Rove Quotes

Just get me a fucking faith-based thing. Got it?

 
Context
Rove pandered to the Religious Right for political purposes, but was not a serious believer himself. The Faith Based Initiative was an unsuccessful program whereby government funds were transferred to religious organizations—almost all of which were evangelical Christian Protestants. This is an example of terrible management. The Faith-Based Initiative was a flop, and Kuo, a religious man himself, was offended, left the government and wrote a book exposing the administration’s failure with the program that President Bush had campaigned on.
