Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

If I were Karl Rove, I'd be very, very scared.

He just bilked some very rich people out of tens of millions of dollars, giving them promises he could not keep. I think I'd be hiding somewhere right now. Truly. I've met Sheldon Adelson. He's not a friendly guy.

1. I hope they file a lawsuit against Karl, demanding their money back.

7. Yeah, and Rove didn't deliver.

My question is how much he skimmed. That may be their question, too. Skimming ain't a good thing.

6. No. Political contributions are not deductible.

They may try to funnel it through 501 (c)s, but I don't think they'll get away with it in the end.

8. Then, the more fool Sheldon Adelson.

I won't ever meet him again, but if I did I'd say, "So, Shelly, how'd that Romney thing work out for ya?"

11. seeing this turd sweat is wonderful

I take such a delight in this, it is unreal. This is clearly the greatest election I have ever been a part of, even better than 08, because the cons knew deep down they were going to lose that one. Rove & company are still shell shocked!! Suckers!!!! I just wish I could hear the call with Rove and the turds supporting his super pacs.

12. If I was Rove

I'd be a bit worried about Trump. Trump seems really really a tad upset.

13. Trump scares no one except his barber. That guy is fucking terrified.

Trump is a blowhard nobody with no political clout whatsoever.

He doesn't even realize that the vast majority in this country think he's an idiot.

16. I suspect

he's winding up his lawyers to take a run at suing Obama for 50 quardrillibillobibbity dollars for ruining his good name, as is par for the course for Trump. Blowhard moran.

but he is very fond of his money. He & his ilk know no bounds.

20. Rove's position, having not engineered the election of Romney,

is that of a grifter. He snookered billionaires out of serious money and they got nothing in the deal. They won't see it as a bad investment, a risk. They will see it as losing money, prestige, and power.

21. What happened in Ohio?

Ham Rove totally dropped the ball. He was supposed to make sure Ohio went to Romney, right?

It sure looks suspicious, anyway.
Speculate away. Nothing is too dirty or unethical for that creep.
