Rove is very smart and know what he is doing. I know people want to cite his mini-tirade on FOX the other night, and predict his fall from grace within the GOP, but while he was doing that I was watching MSNBC and saw O'Donnell admit that if Rove believed the numbers and results needed to be waited on and checked then he felt that it would be legitimate given Rove's reputation and record.
The GOP needs to appeal to women and hispanics. If they do that, Rove is plenty good to help them win an election.
You know as well as I do that there were plenty of people that were voting for Obama no matter what negative ads or positive ads Rove could have created.
Not sure what the totals were for the independent voters but that might be another indicator used to judge how the Super PACs did.
I dont mean to say Rove was the reason Romney lost, not at all.
Billionaires like to see results and by the "return on investment" measurement the article talked about, he didn't do well.
I'm curious to see if he still attracts the big money.
