Karl Rove Just Won't Believe That Obama Can Win Re-Election

I don't know if Karl is this stupid or is being purposefully obtuse. All I can tell you is that I am positive that he's not nearly as politically savvy as Republicans insist he is.

With the 2012 elections drawing ever nearer, Karl Rove has made his prediction official: no matter who wins the Republican primary, Barack Obama is losing. On [Friday evening's] O’Reilly Factor, host Juan Williams tried to remind Rove that the Republican field is weak, at best, but received only an earful as to why President Obama is a failure with no chance of winning another four years in the White House.[..]

Williams continued to attempt to get Rove to cede that the Republican field was weak, which resulted in much barely-coherent cross-talk, thought which Williams finally made the point that each Republican candidate is severely flawed. “How do you recover if you are Mitt Romney and you have health care? How do you recover if you are Tim Pawlenty and nobody knows you? How do you recover if you are Michele Bachmann and everybody thinks you’re an extremist?” Rove compared them all to President Obama himself, an “obscure senator from Illinois who did diddly squat in the Senate.”

That's the best he's got? Really? Re-hashing tired 2008 talking points about his Senate record and pinning hopes on a poll more than eighteen months out on a generic Republican instead of the clown car crop of candidates currently vying for the Republican nomination? C'mon, Karl. That's lame, even coming from you.
