Author Bob Woodward on Sunday blasted Republican strategist Karl Rove for creating a super PAC that acts as a Soviet-style “Politburo” with the de facto power to decide Republican primaries.
During a panel segment on Fox News Sunday, Rove insisted that he had founded the Conservative Victory Project super PAC to “avoid having stupid candidates who can’t win general elections… because this money is too difficult to raise to be spending it on behalf of candidates who have little chance of winning in general elections.”
Also appearing on the panel, Woodward seemed shocked that Rove was still successful in courting Republican donors after his American Crossroads super PAC got only only a 1 percent return on $103 million in spending during 2012 election.
“My last book is going to be called ‘Some People Never Go Away’ and Karl’s going to get his own chapter because he never goes away,” Woodward snarked. “Maybe two chapters because you never know what the next bounce will be with you.”
Heh, Bob, it's not the people that vote who count; it's the people that count who vote. /sarcasm off.
