On a Tuesday evening in Chapel Hill, former Senior Adviser to the Bush Administration Karl Rove broke down the issues before a packed audience at UNC’s Memorial Hall.
“I’m here to talk about America’s challenges and the 2010 elections,” he announced.
Characteristically plain spoken, yet armed to the teeth with facts and figures, Mr. Rove addressed a wide range of issues including many of the problematic aspects of Obamacare and the stimulus programs.
He lamented the vast waste of taxpayer money caused by the stimulus, citing stimulus projects like a $5 million for smoking cessation and obesity counseling.
In addition, he criticized the overhauls of the student loan program by the federal government, the proceeds of which, he informed the audience, will be going to paying off Obamacare.
After his warmly received speech, he answered a series of tough questions ranging from the construction of the mosque near ground zero, potential front runners for the 2012 Presidential election, to his work under the George Bush administration.
