25. Couldn't get past "The call was civil" Hahaha....oh really.

If I spent the kind of money these pos spent, I would be many things, civil would be at the bottom of the list.

Nothing negative, no recriminations, or blame?! Republicans lie about everything, they deflect. I don't believe any of the money bags weren't irate and wanting a piece of Rove's scalp! I certainly don't believe anything Politico says or spins.

Donors “weren’t saying anything like, ‘Hey, you dumb son of a b—,’” added Hubbard, who has donated to both the Rove-conceived American Crossroads super PAC and its secret-money nonprofit affiliate Crossroads GPS. “It was all very businesslike. It was as if you were in a business conference and you were a retailer and ‘why didn’t this product sell better?’

On the call, some donors even told Rove, “’I’m glad I gave to you. I feel we made progress,’” recalled Hubbard. “Every quarterback, every coach doesn’t call every play 100 percent right,” he added. “I don’t know how you’re going to blame him. What are you going to blame Karl for?”

No, not buying it. These folks didn't get what they paid for and spents a boatload for their golden tickets.
