Karl Rove says President Obama "succeeded by suppressing the vote" WTF????— Ed Schultz (@edshow) November 8, 2012
See, last I checked it was the Republicans busy suppressing votes because their leaders understood that in a country that was becoming less and less white it would be impossible for them to win elections when they are becoming more and more dependent upon the white vote.
Of course, I have no doubt that those in the crazy wing of the Republican Party will lap this up like it's the G-d's honest truth. Rather than provide a voice of sanity and reason, like some in the GOP are doing at the moment, Rove is busy serving his red meat and casting his lot in with the crazies. While I can see someone like Bachmann or West or Ryan doing this, it's surprising coming from Rove. He's an operative, so he understands how the numbers work, his public posturing about math and Ohio aside.
I'm just going to sit back and laugh. Rove lost every race he was involved in on Tuesday and now he's busy trying to justify his failure. Please, Mr. Rove, do continue. I'll laugh while President Obama is busy taking his second inaugural parade journey down Pennsylvania Avenue with a strengthened majority in the Senate.

Rove argued that Obama won with a smaller popular vote and a smaller margin of victory than in the 2008 election against Sen. John McCain. Instead of expanding voters, Rove argued, Obama "suppressed the vote" by demonizing former Gov. Mitt Romney and encouraging people not to vote.
This only makes it even more laughable because it describes, to a tee, exactly what the Republican game plan for victory is in pretty much any election that they run these days.
