Christine was not the best candidate, thats for sure, but Rove should have shut his mouth until after the election, period. His criticism would have come across as much more constructive. Now, the haters will reject what he says, as good as his advice might be. He should have been the bigger and smarter man.
You’re right, he shouldn’t have said what he did. But it’s fascinating how o’Donnell’s fans see no other reason for her crushing failure than that one comment. NO other reason. I’ve never seen anything like the closed-mindedness, the unwillingness to be honest with oneself about a terribly flawed candidates blindingly obvious failures.
Please tell me where the support or non-support of Michael Steele, or a mountain of criticism from the MSM, or party infighting completely destroyed ANY OTHER race by double digits.
Yet somehow, O’Donnell, who once polled at FOUR PERCENT and then lost to Biden by double-digits, who made two of the most laughable and laughed-at ads of the campaign, who gave interviews where she clearly exhibited her lack of knowledge on important topics...she was on her way to victory, until Karl Rove bitched on a TV show most voters didn’t even see.
The dems were stymied, they were frozen in their tracks by O’Donnell’s smarts and skill at winning elections, at her incredible experience...but then Karl Rove spouted well-known complaints about her, and suddenly they realized they could attack her and win!
Forget that she was ALWAYS behind in the race. No, Rove’s words struck like lightning, wiping out all her support.
This utterly embarassing candidate is supported by utterly blind cheerleaders who would be mocking her incessantly if she had a D after her name, and they know it.
