What was Karl Rove doing on the morning of 9/11/01?

What was Karl Rove doing when he learned about the attack on the World Trade Center?

Here is a short video from a speech Rove gave at the Lancaster County Republican Party's 150th anniversary dinner in Lancaster, Pa. in May of 2006.

According to his recollection Rove learned about the attack at 8:48 a.m. from one of his advisors.

He then goes on to say a mobile command center was installed in an adjacent classroom where Bush was reading "My Pet Goat."

An interesting tidbit into what was going on that morning. I'm not sure if it's believable, but at least Rove puts his actions on the record.

So fake. So evil.

So fake. So evil.

Now, wait a minute...

ROVE: “I’ll never forget when my cell phone rang, sitting outside an elementary school in Sarasota, Florida, and my assistant said to me, 'There’s a report that a plane has flown into the World Trade Center. We don’t know whether it’s a small plane or a jet, y’know, whether it’s commercial or private.' And I went over at 8:48 a.m. on that bright Sunday… that bright September morning and told the President of the United States.”

Hm. Well, that’s not how George Bush remembers it:

BUSH: “I was sitting outside the classroom, waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower of … Y’know the TV was obviously on, and I … I used to fly myself, and I said 'Well, there’s one terrible pilot.' And uh, said 'It musta been a horrible accident.' But I was whisked off there and I didn’t have much time to think about it.”

Geez. You'd think they'd try to get their stories straight.
