“Karl Rove is the solution to the Republican problem. If he would shut his stupid mouth and disappear into the dust bin of history, problem solved. Oh and Karl take all your RINO friends with you.”
Well, You’re correct in that Rove is not a hard core conservative. It appears to me that he’s a pragmatic Republican. In other words, he’s willing to take the Republican with the best chance of winning over allowing a Democrat have the seat. Two examples, Akin and O’Donnell, the two did irreparable damage to themselves by their stupid statements. And then, especially, Akin, when this became obvious refused to step aside in favor of someone who had a chance. So, Rove ain’t the biggest problem we Conservatives face. It’s the stupid candidate syndrome existing amongst our ranks that’s killing us.

I believe that is untrue. It is when the GOP establishment piles on and attacks a candidate that they become falsely portrayed as making stupid statements.
Karl Rove's most important candidate, George Bush, said lots of stupid things and mangled his words. The Left published entire books of "Bush-isms" compiling all the stupid things that Karl Rove's George Bush said.
George Bush was convicted of a DWI. Bush failed in business after business. What sucess Bush had was from his daddy's connections. Even his mother Barbara Bush lamented that the Bush men can't seem to talk without tripping over their words.
But Karl Rove didn't quit on George Bush. By contrast, at the slightest mistake, the GOP establishment FALSELY accuses conservative candidates, piles on, and dramatizes routine and normal slips of the tongue.
For example, Obama clamed that the US Constitution is 2,000 years old. Why isn't that a stupd thing that should disqualify Obama from winning an election -- twice?

Rove probably picked Notre Dame to beat Alabama in the BCS championship. Akin and O’Donnell were not my picks. But who did Rove help win a seat that made a difference in the balance?
