My tinfoil is tingling ...

During the primary season I stated unequivocally to like-minded friends that Mitt would be the nominee because he had the backing of the Bush family and the neo- cons. I also wondered aloud if the true goal of this cabal was to pave the way for Jeb to run in 2016.

Question: All of the PAC money that was given to Rove - do the investors really know how it was spent?

or planning that effectively. Just last Tuesday we saw what a spectacular clusterfuck they could make out of the election they were currently trying to manage; I hardly think this bunch of ideologues and clueless plutocrats could competently plan ahead for an election four years in the future.
