    Rove taunted at University of Iowa

    (CNN) ? Former top Bush aide Karl Rove didn't get the friendliest of receptions at the University of Iowa Sunday, CNN affiliate KCRG reports.

    Rove, who was paid $40,000 to speak at the University, was confronted with an at-times hostile crowd of 1,000, and was interrupted on several occasions.

    At one point during the speech, Rove reportedly lashed out at some of the students, saying, "You got a chance to ask your questions later and make your stupid statements, let me make mine."

    Police also were forced to remove two people after they tried to perform a citizen?s arrest on Rove for what they said were his crimes while a member of the Bush Administration.

    At one point, a person asked Rove if he has ever shed a tear over the war in Iraq.

    "I shed a lot of tears and I have been inspired by many of the people who feel their son or daughter should not have to die in vain," he replied.

    Toward the end of the speech a member of the crowd yelled, "Can we have our $40,000 back?"

    Rove replied, ?No, you can't.?

    Radio Iowa also reports one audience member told Rove that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann named him the "worst person ever."

    "Ever?" Rove joked. "Yea, worse than Hitler, worse than Stalin, worse than Mao and worse than the person who introduced aluminum baseball bats."

    Cameras were only allowed to film the beginning of the speech.

    I bet he doesn;t care he made his money.

    I hope someone finishes him.

    I wonder who thought to invite him to (1) speak at the University; and, (2) pay $40K to do so?

    Could one say they have bats in their belfry (aluminum or not)?

    Funny you should say that. Here's a link with comments:

    My favorite one is near the bottom. Someone says "Too bad those students were not armed, they could have done their country proud."

    The University of Iowa is a Liberal Hotbed, it doesn't surprise me at all that he was received the way he was. I lived in Iowa City for a few years after college and it was amazing at how liberal they were.

    They were so fanatical that they would not listen to a different point of view.

    I would be willing to bet that if say Clinton was treated that way at another college then they would be up in arms demanding an apology.

    I grew up in Sibley, repressed and all. I moved to the grandaddy of liberal hotbeds - Evanston, Illinois.

    Can't make this stuff up.

    There has been much reporting in the ISU Daily about Rove speaking at Iowa. Rove was very insistent that cameras not be allowed after a certain point. Why would that be?
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
