Karl "Untouchable" Rove Defends His $300 Million Disaster

Karl Rove Defends His $300 Million Disaster

Benjy Sarlin

Karl Rove boasted on the eve of Tuesday’s election that all signs pointed towards an electoral college landslide. He was right about the result, just wrong about the candidate. And now it’s up to Rove to explain to donors why, after blowing through $300 million of their money, President Obama is still President Obama and Harry Reid still runs the Senate.

<...>

As Rove’s complaints dragged on, Kelly marched over personally to Fox’s election experts who told her live that they had “99.95%” confidence in their projection, no matter what the network’s on-air talent thought. The segment was passed around endlessly the next day and nearly caused Jon Stewart to die of laughter.

Two days later, Rove started the hard work of explaining why the Democrats were simply too much for any one billionaire-funded super PAC to handle.

He offered up a litany of culprits behind Obama’s victory in a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Thursday. People to blame included:

This is the asshole made "untouchable" by myth.

If Anonymous has definitive proof that Rove tried to hack the vote, present it.

2. I think he is untouchable by "us"

however, he has a LOT to answer for to "them". They bought an election from him and he didn't deliver it. These sorts of folks don't take kindly to being swindled.

They may well indeed take care of the problem for all of us OR they may throw him to the wolves.

4. It's all about the money to them

It's really amazing how blatant it is. They had the money and should have won. That's it. Their attitude does not include issues or the remote possibility Americans agree with Democrats on the issues. To them, it's all personalities.

6. We know where you're aiming and it's not at Rove

Could you please knock it off?

Everyone even slightly to the left of Obama is not the enemy no matter how much you might think they are.

7. "Could you please knock it off? "

Could you please keep your conspiracy theories to yourself?

"Everyone even slightly to the left of Obama is not the enemy no matter how much you might think they are. "

...and is this paranoia? I'm a progressive, not easily misled by conspiracy theories, and when challenged I rarely become authoritative.

Take your own advice: "knock it off"
