Rove, Romney and Ridiculousness

Go here, read this if you are interested in why Romney lost and why the GOP are still on track to repeat their mistakes.  It seems many of us know the problem but some of the "right" people still don't.  Know the problem before you try to solve it or else you will fail.

Here's an excerpt from King Shamus.  He definitely gets it, but he's not in Karl Rove:
This should be an iron-clad rule in politics: If your ideological positions are not helping you, they will be used by your opponent to hurt you. This is especially true when it comes to abortion, which is far more emotional and polarizing then an issue like energy independence or entitlement reform. Mitt and his team forgot this law of partisan warfare and it cost them dearly.

I’ll admit that this post is a lot of gussied-up Monday morning quarterbacking. On the other hand, the Republican Party consultant class gets paid to figure this out before the election and they still don’t know how to play the game. If you listen to Karl Rove and his ilk, they still think the GOP’s problems are caused by being too right-wing. They’ve had just as much time as I’ve had to do a post-game analysis of the November debacle. Their strongest recommendations involve letting Obama get his way on everything, then lather-rinse-repeat until 2016.


  1. Thanks for linkage, mi amigo.

    Rove is just a symptom of the intellectual rot in the GOP. It's pathetic.

  2. No problem King.

    Rove's not an idiot but he's not what the GOP needs. To me he's the GOP's Axelrod - right place, right time and making a career out of that success.

    If he really is the apex of the GOP strategy, that apex is underwater right now.
