    It's the most discustingly hypocritical thing to come out of that asshole's mouth. He invented demonizing/defining politicians of the opposition i.e. Democrats. D:

    They'll probably still cough up plenty of millions of dollars for the various super PACs. Apparently they are quite able to afford to do that but completely unable to afford keeping their peasants employed or paying the Clinton era tax rates.

    So true. The job creators can't create jobs until we get rid of obamacare, slash taxes to the negatives, and get rid of all regulations.

    That is an accurate perception of the Obama campaign.

    In the various stages of GOP death in 2012, first there is denial, and then comes the bargaining, as the GOP is a very long way from the acceptance of the final reality.

    After all, did the GOP fail America, or is the real cop out answer is that the American people failed to be worthy of the GOP. Which is why so many in the GOP will advocate a scorched earth policy to punish America.

    As a new GOP Moses will lead America to wander in the desert for 80 years until all of the present generation is consumed. Don't look back or your lot will being turned into a pillar of salt.

    Rove's exceptional ability to win elections based on a mountain of lies and half-truths just flat out did not work this time around. Why? Because this time around the Repubs made perfectly clear their intentions such that Rove could not wave his magic wand of obfuscation and rattle his staff of truthiness to make things appear as they were not. The Repubs used plain language and overt legislative ploys to get their way over the past four years and even more so as the elections got nearer ie - voter fraud laws, voter suppression laws, etc.

    Gone are the days of crafty disengenuous political parlance. Gone are the ways of expert sleight of hand imagery and misleading titles given to legislation that did just the opposite of how they were titled.

    This time around all pretense was given up as to what the Repub agenda was/is and Rove could only preach to the choir, as the rest of the nation knew exactly where the Repubs stood on issues concerning privatizing federal assistance programs, promulgating with fanfare their laws opposing women's rights, killing off the Affordable Care Act and on and on and on.

    No Mr. Rove is projecting onto President Obama what Mr. Rove has done himself. He has done it so everyone else must have the same strategies for elections.

    Hell, he painted that himself willingly with his 47% moment of truth.

    The video of Mr Romney talking about how 47% of the US are moochers did more to show that he is a rich asshole than anything Mr Obama's campaign was able to do.

    Republicans keep expressing their loathing of anyone who is not a white male and are shocked when these people do not vote for them.

    the US now has a critical mass of moochers and parasites. It's now the United Moochers of America. The silver lining in it all is the moochers and parasites that voted for the obama have given the rest of the country license to line up and demand their entitlements. Elections have consequences.

    Yes they do, and it was referring to 47% of America as moochers that likely cost Romney the Presidency.

    47 percent are moochers and the remaining 53 percent are wanna be moochers.

    I haven't been in here for a couple days. I'd thought the P&L forum would have imploded by now. Like that house at the end of the Poltergeist movie.

    I just glanced in here to maybe catch the headline "Karl Rove straps on explosives and takes Fox News Network hostage".

    Too soon, I guess.... Maybe back in a few hours.

    Well, just following from the GOP's own primary campaigns sent against Romney.

    Way to go, rubes. You handed the fight to the opposition on a silver platter.

    color me skeptical, but I think extracting the life essence of people like IGBT will not fetch much demand on the open market.
