Karl Rove engineered a Republican takeover of the Texas Supreme Court a few decades ago and then went on to groom Rick Perry to become the Texas agriculture commissioner in 1990. Perry later became Lt. Governor of Texas in 1998 and eventually became Governor of Texas in 2000 when G. W. Bush resigned to become President.
However, according to various reports, Karl Rove may not be so happy with how Rick Perry turned out, especially his bull in China shop-like comments about Mr. Bernanke.

The Problem with Making Copies of Copies
Karl Rove coached G. W. Bush before he became President. Then Karl Rove coached Rick Perry. However, Rick Perry has certain similarities to G. W. Bush but he seems to be more extreme. Did Rick Perry turn out similar to Michael Keaton’s character “Doug” in the movie Multiplicity when Doug made clone copies of himself and then his copy, Doug#3, made a copy of Doug #2 which resulted in Doug#4 who is a little off or “special”?
Is Rick Perry a bad copy of G. W. Bush? In the movie Multiplicity, Doug #3 said that sometimes “when you make a copy of a copy it isn’t quite as sharp as the original.” Is that what happened with Perry?

Has Rick Perry taken his education in learning how to use manipulative talking points to a completely different level than perhaps Karl Rove envisioned? Karl Rove how is your protege Rick Perry doing now?
