"Bush's Brain" chronicles the life and work of Karl Rove, currently the Senior Advisor to President Bush. When this documentary was shot Karl Rove was unknown to most Americans. He was the most powerful man America had never heard of. He was the 'Wizard of Oz' behind the curtain of the Bush Presidency.
Things have certainly changed since 2004. For example, many Americans now know the name 'Karl Rove.' They probably even know him by the nickname "Bush's Brain". They know he has engineered two Presidential victories for George W. Bush. They know he is smart. They know he is effective. They may even think of him as ruthless. Machiavellian.
But, even now, what most Americans don't know or understandâ€¦ is the "Rove M.O.". They don't know how Karl Rove actually operates. "Bush's Brain" is a primer on how Karl Rove operates. If you want to understand what happened in the elections of 2000 and 2004, you should watch this film.
