BUSH'S BRAIN is a documentary that introduces the country to Karl Rove, the man known as "Bush's Brain", the most powerful political figure America has never heard of, the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain of today's Presidential politics. It is based on the best-selling book BUSH'S BRAIN (Wiley, 2003) by journalists James Moore and Wayne Slater.
Karl Rove is President George W. Bush's closest adviser. He is a man who has almost single-handedly shaped the policies of our nation. A brilliant tactician, ruthless opponent, savvy policy maker, and one of the greatest political minds in the history of the Republic.
The relationship between Karl Rove and President George W Bush is one of the most unique political marriages in history. Feared and admired by Republicans and Democrats alike, Rove has raised a new and disturbing question for Americans: Who really runs the country?
BUSH'S BRAIN explores Rove's remarkable political journey and the extraordinary role he has played in George Bush's rise to the top. From his masterful political skills, to the secret machinations he has carefully orchestrated, to his dramatic influence on foreign policy, the fingerprints of Karl Rove can be found throughout the political process.
