TAMPA, Fla. Karl Rove on Monday predicted Rep. Todd Akin will lose by the widest margin of any Republican candidate in modern history if he remains in his Missouri Senate race against Sen. Claire McCaskill.
What he said was indefensible and the way he handled it made it worse, Rove told POLITICOs Mike Allen at the first POLITICO Playbook Breakfast at the Republican National Convention.
This is a program that he taped and obviously he saw nothing wrong with it in his tape, Rove said, pointing out that Akin didnt respond to the taped interview until two days later.
Rove said Akin has no option other than getting out of the race.

and it was ours to win.
Rove is a hater.
Get your head out of your butts. Shooting at your own side every day does NOTHING to win elections.
Rove is full of himself.
He may be a hater, but he is right that Akin will lose, I don’t know if he’ll lose by the largest margin in history, perhaps for his state, but don’t know about history. He’s also going to be a drag on every race, and cost the GOP some close ones.
I hope that Karl Rove, David Gergen, Colin Powell and Ed Rollins have a Special place in the lake of fire reserved for them.
Rove is a hater.And to think he was born on Christmas.
Time for MO to prove Rove wrong!
Someone on Akin’s team (if he still has a team) should put this Rove clip on YouTube and email the link to their lists. Rove is WAY more hated than Akin is.
Karl Rove should shut the hell up on this. they are determined to force him out.
Akin said somethign stupid, OK- get over it. None of us are perfect.
But his opponent is a baby-murder supporting, Obama ass-kissing liberal who will NOT repeal Obamacare, GOT IT???
My guess is that Rove is way off on this, unless he actually starts doing ads for McCaskill. Which could happen.
I know it is true and you know it is true, but posting ANYTHING from Karl Rove (let alone an Akin piece) on this site will bring you hostile fire.
Thanks for posting.
I hope that Karl Rove, David Gergen, Colin Powell and Ed Rollins have a Special place in the lake of fire reserved for them.They'll have company!
Rove is exactly right. Inadvertant as it may be, Akin handed that once-winnable contest to McCaskill with that fateful comment... and he`s hurting the national ticket, IMO.
But, hey.. we must move on... Akin has amassed almost $100K (vs McCaskill`s multi-million$), and he`s picking up broad support (among democrats). Plus, he`s dead set on winning (2nd place).
If Akin pulls this out I will be willing to write a mea culpa vanity on this site. You can write to me and tell me what I need to include in that post.
If Akin loses I want to see EACH Akin supporter write their own mea culpa which would include the admission that not all people who want him to drop out are ESTABLISHMENT types. That some of us WERE GENUINELY OFFENDED by what he said and are bonafide conservatives too.
If Romney loses Missouri because of this I want those same supporters to admit that they put ego ahead of reality, which is what they do if they decide not to vote for Romney because of this.
Rove hates conservatives.
Yes, indeed! Rove is going to make sure Akin loses....why, he had the gall and audacity not to obey Rove.
