Fox News called President Obama had won Ohio on Election Night but self-appointed expert strategist Karl Rove would not accept it and began his mathmatical tirade to defend his projection that Ohio is still too soon to call and leaning Romney. After 74% of the Ohioan votes were in and what was left to be counted were pointing to Obama, Rove went into denial (aka. meltdown) and Megyn Kelly had to bring him back to Earth!
In case you missed it, here's what happened. Mr. Rove started having an epic meltdown when Fox News joined the rest of the free world in declaring that President Barack Obama had won Ohio, and, thus, the election. Mr. Rove sputtered and stuttered. He demanded justice. But Fox News anchors actually interviewed the network's own polling experts, who said that, yes, Ohio was blue. Mr. Rove stammered through some more numbers, and then, in a moment that couldn't have been more perfect, Ms. Kelly asked him this: “Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better or is this real?” Link
The Fox Network is divided against itself.
Karl Rove, the mastermind behind GWB's 2000 and 2004 elections, has now proven himself to be insignificant in facts and statistics. He is also facing major backlash from millionaires and billionaires that gave his Crossroad Superpac over $400 million dollars. After Tuesday's election results, these superrich moguls only received a whopping 1.29% in return of their investment! Hahahahahah!
Money well spent???!! No refund!!!
But Rove's denial did not subside. On Thursday, he told Fox News that Obama "succeeded in suppressing the vote" by having ads and talking points that maligns the Romney/Ryan ticket.
Gee, I define 'voter suppression' as efforts by political leaders to make it harder for people – especially people who might oppose the politically powerful at the polls – to cast ballots. The aim of voter suppression is to disenfranchise a certain population of the electorate that would vote for the opposing candidate.
What a false equivalency of such statement. Well documented as Republican tactics this election year are Voter Intimidation, Misdirection, Mis-Information and Suppression. But these Facts are never discussed nor circulated among right-wing talking points and Fox News.
Well Fox, what are you going to do now with Karl?
If you raise his salary, history has shown he cannot promise to deliver a profitable return. Is he still a wise investment?? or should you cut your losses now???
If you decide to keep Rove as a Fox News contributor, may I use the same suggestion Jon Stewart made to replace your current "Fair and Balance" logo:
