HUBRIS: Karl Rove, who tried to influence the presidential election with his American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS super PACs, is crying foul, saying the Obama campaign “succeeded in suppressing the vote.” Um, funny he should use the word suppressing, since it’s evident from the deliberate actions by Republican leaders in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania to suppress voters. I also didn’t realize Karl Rove was the spokesman for the Republican Party, but then again, in an earlier post, I said the GOP had a Karl Rove problem.
Karl Rove defended Republicans’ work this election cycle, arguing that President Obama only won by making neither candidate look palatable and that Mitt Romney, not outside groups, should have fought back harder.
The president’s campaign “succeeded by suppressing the vote,” Rove told Fox News. “They effectively denigrated Mitt Romney’s character, business acumen, experience.” Source
