The President should apologize

for not having the good manners to lose.

According to Rove:

He was behind "voters suppression." Never mind that so many Republican legislators were behind all the photo ID laws, tampering with early voting and unpreparedness for the polls.

He spent so much more than Romney - yeah, after the Republicans and their justices gave us Citizens United. And Sheldon Adelson, and the Kock monsters.

He attacked Romney personally. Oh, no one ever went after Obama: the monkey jokes, the watermelon jokes, both he and Michelle as angry blacks, the birthers - all the attacks from which the Romney campaign never tried to distance itself.

One has to wonder whether Rove actually believes in this nonsense or, as Meghan-what's-her-name-and-spelling asked whether it is just a self-preservation. (I don't watch Fox, but that story on the Daily Show was priceless).

Add to this the stories about no concession speech, ready with fireworks; a campaign or, at least, a candidate completely clueless about the possibility of a loss and one has to imagine - shudder - a Romney administration where groupthink rules. For the younger ones - this is what was happening in the White House that led to the Bay of Pigs.

1. I thought that it was hilarious that Rove accused Obama of "suppressing voters" by attacking Romney

and calling him out on his lies. When I heard about that, my brain nearly exploded at the hypocrisy.

2. Rove attacks people on his weakness, not just on their strengths

He's praying that his billionaire benefactors believe him. And they just might.

3. Money speaks louder than Rove

Remember they didn't just lose the money the invested in this campaign. they have also loss future millions because their tax rate isn't going down to zero.

4. Don't need any excuse for Obama here

stating facts is not attacking him personally. Obama NEVER attacked Romney personally. He stated the guys record, that's all. If Romney's life work is so bad that he considers it an attack, maybe it's time to do some different work.

"He attacked Romney personally. Oh, no one ever went after Obama: the monkey jokes, the watermelon jokes, both he and Michelle as angry blacks, the birthers - all the attacks from which the Romney campaign never tried to distance itself."
