Karl Rove Begins To Make Excuses For Possible Romney Loss

More: http://www.eclectablog.com/2012/11/karl-rove-begins-to-give-his-excuses-for-wasting-300-million-of-other-peoples-money.html

In 2000, Karl Rove predicted George W. Bush would win 320 electoral votes. Bush won 271–if you count Florida.

In 2006, he said he had “THE math” that showed the GOP would keep the House of Representatives. They lost 30 seats and the House.

In 2008, when he wasn’t closely involved in the McCain campaign, he came out with a map just before the election that pretty much predicted the president’s landslide.

1. Now there is a flaw in President Obama's Presidency. Karl Rove should be in jail, not out there

 

trying to steal an election for Mitt! We need to look backward as well as forward in order to move this country forward.

3. You'd think he'd be thanking Obama and shutting his big mouth up

for not having him arrested, but no.

...who penned an op-Ed just a few days ago that predicted a Romney landslide.

Rove is a carnival barker. So is Dick Morris. Their role in this campaign has been to whip their base into a white-hot fusion of rage and blind optimism based on made-up shit.

They are ridiculous ass wipes.

The fact that they are signaling REALITY--a Romney loss--is because they're trying to save their own asses.

They've done a disservice to their base, by feeding them some bizarre universe in which Romney was going to win. It's been clear to anyone who can read, that Obama held clear advantage in the critical swing states. But Rove and others kept the party faithful doped up on national polls and cherry-picked data. It's reallly been disgraceful to watch this great bamboozling.

When will these Americans turn off Fox News and dump these liars and charlatans who keep them amped up and addicted to lies, fear and hate? Fox makes a ton of dough off of the misery and ignorance of their sudience. Will they ever tire of being used?

4. Good question! When will enough republicans who

also happen to be decent people (yes, they are out there) finally get sick of being lied to and played for fools by the likes of fox news (sic), Rove, Limbaugh, and all the other gas bags making a fortune at their expense. If only enough relatively honest republicans would speak up, maybe the hord of lemmings and racists would wake up to who's really taking them for a ride.

I'm not holding my breath for a quick awakening. They do so love to hate. Part of that self-projection thing they do.

5. just playing the devil's advocate for a moment...

there are times when I wondered if Obama wasn't a Karl Rove plant, designed to get white righties so pissed off they'd vote for Alfred E. Newman just out of their bigotry. I mean Obama DID do a lot for gun sales, health insurance companies, Wall Street, bankers, CEO's, drone manufacturers, etc. So they act as if they hate him, to keep base incensed, and advertising companies and the media make Billion$ off of this election. What more could a Karl Rove ask for? I think he'll get more out of an Obama 2nd term than we will! I wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't in favor of four more years hisself! Just sayin,
