<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The real lightning bolts being thrown on Wednesday were by the party's super donors, who played a historic role in this election after a 2010 Supreme Court decision allowed them to give unlimited amounts to outside groups.

Many of the lightning bolts were aimed at none other than Karl Rove, the former Bush administration political genius who oversaw the deployment of nearly <span style='font-size: 14pt'><u>$400 million</u> in campaign spending through outside groups American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS toward the presidential race and toward numerous Senate and House races.</span>

"The billionaire donors I hear are livid," one Republican operative told The Huffington Post. "There is some holy hell to pay. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Karl Rove has a lot of explaining to do I don't know how you tell your donors that we spent $390 million and got nothing."</span><span style="color: #990000">LOL</span>

Rove even suffered the indignity of being insulted on Twitter by the blustery Donald Trump, who had attended Romney's election night party here on Tuesday night, but left early after it was clear that Obama had won a second term.

"Congrats to @KarlRove on blowing $400 million this cycle. Every race @CrossroadsGPS ran ads in, the Republicans lost. What a waste of money," Trump tweeted, inaccurately.

Crossroads GPS spent money in the Nevada Senate race, where Republican incumbent Sen. Dean Heller defeated Democratic challenger Shelley Berkley. The group also spent money on numerous House races.

Rove was forced to defend his group's expenditures live on Fox News on Tuesday night, and will hold a briefing with top donors on Thursday, according to Politico.

<u>There were plenty of attacks on Romney himself,</u> as well, with Erickson saying that<span style='font-size: 14pt'> he "stood for nothing and everything at the same time,"</span> and that his advisers were " <span style='font-size: 14pt'>outside charlatans</span>, many of whom will now go work for Republican Super PACs making six-figure salaries, further draining the pockets of rich Republicans when not on television explaining how awesome and expert they are."

Ben Domenech, a conservative author, described Romney's candidacy as having <span style='font-size: 14pt'>"a message without music, delivered by a candidate with little or no personality, saddled with enormous advantages in life which become disadvantages in the world of politics.</span>" </div></div>

Exactly. If the republican Party's best candidate is Mittens, then they can't expect to win.
I saw a poll before the election that said if it was Hillary running against him, it would be a walkover.
Good to see Turd Blossom getting some payback for all his evil deeds.

Before it's all over, he may be getting more than just payback! We may finally see the Karl Rove Frogmarch, decades overdue!
