Response to Karl Rove's claim that Obama won by "denigrating" Romney's character



So, Rover, you claim that the Obama campaign is guilty of voter suppression because it questioned Romney's character and painted him as a vulture capitalist.

Rover, all the Obama people had to do to accomplish that was play back the video tape of Romney speaking on YouTube.

Mitt the Twit lied with the frequency of your former client, Bush the Frat Boy (who never made a factual statement that contained the word Iraq). While it is true that The Twit was recorded surreptitiously while saying it, no one from the Obama camp twisted his arm to make those remarks about nearly half the American people being lazy moochers who feel entitled to government handouts. That remark was made to an audience of billionaires who feel entitled to taxpayer bailouts. That's also pretty much the message in the post election analysis from your pals on Fox News. Bill O'Reilly even added a racist remark in his take and moaned how white males don't have the influence they used to have. Ah, those were the days, eh, Rover? when state and local governments imposed literacy tests to keep poor people from voting and the Ku Klux Klan lynched any poor blacks who thought out loud about voting. Now you've got crooked state legislators in debt to the bribes large campaign contributions from the Koch brothers to pass voter ID laws, crooked Secretaries of State in Ohio dreaming up creative ways to keep blacks and latinos from voting and crooked Governors in Florida to purge the voter rolls and cut early voting days. Your charge that the Democrats suppressed Republican votes is idiotic. Is irony so lost on you that you can say such a stupid thing over public airwaves and expect intelligent people to believe it?

You know what, Rover? I think Obama would have won a free and fair election by a wider margin than he won with the shit you and the Koch brothers and Jon Husted and Governor Slick Rott tried to pull off. You guys are nothing but a bunch of fascists who hate democracy and send brown shirts to polling places to intimidate voters who aren't white.

As for The Twit's business experience, it was a business that measured success by companies bankrupted and jobs lost rather than making any positive contribution to sustainable growth. I'm not saying that The Twit did anything illegal, just immoral and harmful to working Americans. Bain Capital is the kind of enterprise that no healthy economy can afford. It is the kind of enterprise that can be found praiseworthy only in the sophistry of Ayn Rand where robber barons like The Twit and Jaimie Dimon are Nietzshean ‹bermenschen who have an existential right to treat us peons like shit because they're just better than we are.

Let me give you and Mr. Ryan, whose intellectual growth was stunted when as a teenager he read Atlas Shrugged, the inconvenient truth that robber barons are not better than the peons who make them rich. They need us more than we need them, and nobody needs Bain Captial any more than anybody needed Enron.

The Twit didn't need anyone's help in appearing like a low character born in a high place with few positive achievements to point to in his past. He did that all by himself and you, Rover, have a real talent for finding such people.

Your time is over, Rover. Now go crawl under a stone and write a self-serving work of fiction that you will call your memoirs.

2. The daily Show did a good job on this

showing all the clips of FOX news idiots in the Republican primary painting Romney as a soulless venture capitalist. As usual Rove is projecting what Republicans did on Democrats. All Obama did was point out the obvious label that Rove and friends had already painted on Romney.

5. He'll Be Back...

...fools never learn lessons easily; especially rich ones. Remember, most of these losers live in the Bullshit Mountain Bubble...totally detached from only the most stark forms of reality...such as getting their asses kicked last Tuesday. They really didn't see it coming and the obvious explanations don't fit their conveluted narratives...ones turdblossom has cultivated for years. When they looked for the answers, Karl tap danced and they appear to be applauding. He's telling them they didn't lose...it was either an "act of god" or voter "suppression" (yes I find that irony all but off the scales) or voter apathy (the Chick Fil A rushpublicans stayed home)...the more bullshit the better...as long as you can distract from the fact that these goons just got fleeced and Rove's setting up his marks again.

We're already seeing the unhinged haven't learned much from Tuesday. The problem is "branding"...or that Willard wasn't "severely conservative" enough. Hate radio, as expected, is trying to whip up the anger in hopes of exploiting it and to continue its non-stop effort to try to make nullify the election and continue to delegitimize the President. The echo chamber is what Rover relies upon to quickly erase the sting of squandering so much money (not including Karl's commissions) and get them ready to start cutting checks for 2014 and 16...

6. If you ever want to know what republicans are up to...

...just look at what they accuse others of doing. I would love for Turdblossom, or anyone else of his ilk, to come up with a legitimate concrete example of where the President, or any of his surrogates, "denigrated' that jackass his party put up as their presidential candidate. We all know they can't.

We only told the truth about him! LOL

12. Since Mitt's character has already been established and not open for debate....

It's a little silly to give President Obama the credit for defining Mitt's character. Mitt did that all by himself. And there is plenty to document that character and is not subject to idle conjecture. It's a fact, KKKarl. You advisors didn't do him any favors either by encouraging him to double down on the lies and then go one further by picking someone who just might be a bigger liar than he is. What were the American people supposed to do to dissuade themselves of the idea that Mitt and Paul were the biggest pair of liars to ever run for the two highest elected offices in the land, if not the world? They were reminded of that day after day every time they opened their mouths or ran an ad against Obama/Biden.

Mitt's reputation as a "job creator" and businessman was also something he crafted quite well by himself. There are also a whole slew of folks who were the victims of his tactics as a corporate vulture. No Apologies, indeed. This man has wrecked lives across our nation and all with the sole purpose of furthering his own ambitions and bank accounts. And he has never apologized for the harm he caused and further more, has told us he has no intentions of doing that. What does THAT say about his character, KKKarl? Or lack of it.

I agree with Jack Rabbit....your time is over, KKKarl. You have had your day and we have had quite enough of you. In your time you have made plenty of money to take care of you until you days on earth are done. So do us all a favor and hit the road, beat it, amscray. We can't stand the sight of you for one more minute. And be sure to tell you old pal, Mittens and his side kick, we're sick and tired of them, too. Just stay out of our sight and leave us the hell alone.

14. Questioning Romney's character like Santorum, Gingrich, and Perry did?

Santorum said he was the worst person to represent the party. Gingrich called Romney a liar on national television. Perry is the one who began the vulture capitalist theme to describe Romney. When everyone, even members of the home team are pointing out deadly flaws in the candidate it's no longer just a paint job, it's the general consensus of opinion in the entire nation.
