Karl Rove picker more losers and drove opportunity into the ground and wasted more money than ANY conservative candidate he can mention.
In fact, he is directly responsible for the loss in the Missouri Senate Race.
He led the piling on by republicans, something that democrats NEVER would have done.
Fwiw, democrats stopped standing by Toricelli, Spitzer, and Weiner when it was obvious they couldn't win for their stupidity.........don't kid yourself, they like to win.......
If there wasn't a Rove, you guys would have to invent them. When bad candidates get destroyed, you need someone to blame other than the candidate, and an all-powerful bogeyman is just the ticket.
Most of the electorate hasn't heard of Karl Rove and doesn't care what he says. Yet, astonishingly, a collection of nitwits can delude themselves into believing that Rove, simply by saying unpleasant things about a candidate, is personally responsible for Akin losing by FIFTEEN points and Christine O'Donnell losing by SEVENTEEN points.
Do you really think there are millions of voters out there (be they Republicans, indpenedents, or swing Democrats) that sit around anxiously waiting for Karl Rove to tell them who to vote for?
Both candidates lost, of course, because they were terrible and incompentent (and in the case of O'Donnell, unelectable in her state), not because of Rove.
>he is directly responsible for the loss in the Missouri Senate Race
That line of “thinking” will only lead to more arm chair gynecologists getting nominated to lose the election.
akin sunk himself with his own mouth and should have stepped down. It looks like some have not learned from his mistakes.
