Inside Karl Rove's Secret Effort to Defeat Obama's Re-Election With Billionaire Donors' Help



DemocracyNow.org - Karl Rove, the man once known as "Bush's Brain," has helped found two groups that plan to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for television, radio and online attack ads to defeat President Obama and restore Republican control of Washington this November. The groups -- American Crossroads, whose donors are public, and Crossroads GPS, a so-called "social welfare" organization whose donors are anonymous -- operate out of the same offices, share many of the same staff, and pay millions to air similar attack ads. We're joined by Paul Barrett, assistant managing editor at Bloomberg Businessweek about his article published today called, "Karl Rove: He's Back, Big Time."

1. Any time Turdblossom is involved in an election

Watch your back. Just ask any of his casualties (those who are still alive, anyway).

Mitt may seem laughable now, but so did W in 2000. And we're much worse off now in terms of the integrity of our electoral process than we were then.

I honestly believe there is no low to which Turdblossom will sink in order to "win".
