The president was also lucky. This time, the October surprise was not a dirty trick but an act of God. Hurricane Sandy interrupted Mr. Romney’s momentum and allowed Mr. Obama to look presidential and bipartisan.
Rove’s embarrassing display on Fox of unhinged hysteria on election night is one for the books. He succumbed to the line of crap he was selling to the public to the tune of hundreds of millions of anonymous corporate dollars. His astonishment and anger at being denied what he felt entitled to (yes that was a deliberate choice of words), namely the White House, was as clear as the glare off his bald head. Now he has to find 1001 excuses as to why he failed his masters.
The president wasn’t lucky, Karl. he was smarter than you. You thought you could just pick any moron in a suit and buy an election. Who knows? It might even work in 2016. But right now? Congratulations, Karl Rove! You’re the crybaby of the day!
