Karl Rove: "the full story of the disaster" will be told

An overlooked item from Dan Froomkin's Friday column on visit to a North Carolina fundraiser this past week bears scrutiny:
Karl Rove managed to tear himself away from his reconstruction duties yesterday for a fundraising visit to Greensboro, N.C.

The Greensboro News and Record reports that he attended a Republican National Committee fundraiser at a private home.

"Guilford County Republican Party Chairman Marcus Kindley said Rove answered questions from guests around the state.

"The Bush administration has been criticized for being slow to respond to the damage spawned by Hurricane .

"Kindley said Rove reassured the crowd that the full story of the disaster would be told.

" 'He told us to hang in there,' Kindley said."(emphasis added)
I can just see him, reassuring the "have-mores" that the White House has yet to unload its guns on this just just you all be patient and the "full story" will soon be told...

I think he may have a challenge re-writing this piece of history given what the world has seen, if that's what he's planning. And from the sounds of things, he's having to shore up the base already.

So let's wait and see whether Karl starts telling the "full story"...
