Carl Rove is the “architect” of losing the House and Senate in 2006, when the unemployment rate was 4.5%———and his strategy was followed by Mitt Romney and resulted in losing the White House and seats in the House and Senate in 2012 to a president and party running trillion dollar deficits for 5 straight years when the unemployment rate is over 7.5% and higher than when Obama took office. Why would you sign the demolition man to a new multi-year contract????? So he can figure out new ways to lose elections and create more independents????? “Let’s see-——this county in Ohio has lots of registered Republicans, so if we can just get all of those registered Republicans to the polls to vote for us, then maybe we can beat those 47% of registered Democrats—as long as they don’t show up to vote in the same numbers”. So he campaigned only in areas with huge Republican registration advantages, trying to stir up only Republicans to vote for him.......and it looked as though he was the rich, white candidate seeking the rich, white Republican vote against the black president —who campaigned as a “moderate” for everybody’s votes and not just his supposed “base”. Obama campaigned in the cities, the towns, the rural areas, whereas Romney didn’t even go near a minority district or a city!!!!! Carl Rove is all about politics and not ideas. He is the problem. And he is wishy washy on immigration. Republicans are supposed to make a deal with Democrats on immigration that we KNOW Democrats have no intention of keeping their end of the deal-—because their end of the deal is ONLY a “promise” to crack down on illegal immigration after they pocket the real goods of more legal immigration and putting 10 million Democrats on the path to voting. Bush was panderer and chief—and cost our party greatly.
I always get the impression that Rove really thinks he is the true voice, the unelected leader, if you will, of the Republican Party. I don’t think he could lead a one car funeral procession. His ideas are totally out of touch with real middle-class Republicans.

GOOD simile with the characterization of “demolition man”,
extending the question further: would you hire a demolition contractor rather than a building contractor to build your house?
