Rove: Obama won 'by suppressing the vote' - POLITICO.com

    And so what ? Its about winning and if running a nasty campaign to discourage the other party's base from voting does it, so be it.
    Especially if you are the incumbent and the folks may be ambivalent towards your continued time in office.  Don't let the public get it in their head that the opponent is an acceptable or desirable alternative.
    So Karl Rove is right that the Obama campaign was all about suppressing enthusiasm for Mitt Romney, knowing there were a lot of people out there not willing to vote for the President.
     Karl acts like team Obama did something wrong...They didn't...They played hard ball and won.  Mitt Romney ended up a better candidate than many thought, but the seeds of his demise were planted last spring and summer just like they were for one local candidate.

Straight out of the Karl Rove playbook… commit the wrongdoing and then blame the opposition.

Nice try Karl, but no one in their right mind is buying it, save for the far right. But then, they’re clearly not in their right mind.

Now please go away...

Amazing. It is the GOP that did everything possible to surpress the vote, requiring voter ID in many states, intimidating minority voters, making calls telling people they could vote over the phone etc. The GOP surpressed enthusiasm in their own party by selecting Romney as their nominee and then he further dampened it by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate.

I know three people that went to vote and were told their name was not on the list. They were told they must of waited too long since the last time they voted. How is that for voter suppression?

Rove is grasping at straws here and frankly was totally embarrassed nationally on election night b his total misread of the demographic wave and just how out of synch the GOP strategy was both crafted and operation aliased. he. Is now FIGHTING for his consulting life and is now proven for all to see that he is one exit past relevancy . ;)

I dont buy that at all.. Doheny planted the seeds for his defeat many years ago. His actions have left him less than a credible canidate for any public office except possibly mayor of Watertown.. Let it go mayor yu lost fair and square... Let him die a natural quiet death and disappear into the sunset on his Islands.
I cant believe hes not going to challange Patty Ritchie in 14...

Karl Rove the "Swift Boat" genius who made a joke out of Kerry, who actually went to 'Nam and won a silver star, and a hero out of "W" who barely made stateside reserve duty.

Then, he is so embarrassingly diabolical he is released from the Bush White House Staff.

Karl Rove is now as credible as Donald Trump.

You just cant give up on Doheny can you mayor...
Obama suppressed the vote..
You are deppressing your readers
Doheny lost by his lack of integrety and character. He didnt have a clue and certainly no viable solutions.

Rove is more of a joke than Dick "Toe Sucker" Morris and Hannity, Limbaugh and most of the FAUX gnus team ... really ... the only one worse: The Donald.
