Protesters to greet former White House aide Karl Rove

A year ago, two top Republican strategists sat down for lunch at the venerable Mayflower Hotel, five blocks from the White House, to calculate how to exploit the voter anger they had seen erupt at Democratic town hall meetings that summer. Today, a coordinated GOP-allied attack led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Karl Rove-inspired American Crossroads has stunned opponents and even its architects with the breadth of its success.

Former White House aide and television news commentator Karl Rove is set to deliver remarks Tuesday before the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. He’ll likely discuss last week’s Republican congressional victories.
Rove was the driving force behind former President George W. Bush’s two successful presidential campaigns.
While Rove and guests are inside a downtown hotel eating lunch, anti war protesters plan to be outside the hotel performing a mock arrest of an actor dressed like Rove for war crimes.
A spokesman for the End the War coalition tells The Arizona Republic Rove committed war crimes when “he tried to sell the 2003 invasion of Iraq to the public.”
