(when Scott Brown was a Tea Party candidate, he won. With Karl Rove in his corner, he lost). After a track record like that it is surprising it wasn’t renamed by donors as “American double-cross.”
This is true. The Rs that won were not moderates, they lost. Even 8 out of the 11 Ron Paul guys, endorsed by him as well won in the House.
Another question is why does Rove still get his talking slot on Fox with all this, while others lose theirs? Something to think about with Fox.
