a lot of people don't like rove and that's ok. here is what happened, though:
rove started a new group much like crossroads. it is a group to support republican candidates. one of the tea party groups had a cow and accused Rove of only being interested in supporting establishment candidates.
that's not what he's doing. remember, Rove has spent his entire political career getting republicans elected. he's got a pretty good track record. his goal with this group is to get the most conservative, ELECTABLE, candidates into office. the most electable candidate will not always be the most conservative candidate.
in my state, for instance, you'd have a hard time getting real conservatives in office. i think we have one. the best we can do is get purple candidates and hope that they can be brought along for the important votes.
so, i defend Rove in that he's doing what he's always done. he's trying to get the slots filled with R even if that is a little r.
BTW....my husband says that since i have quite smoking i have gotten a little short tempered. :evil: i think he has his head up his backside. since you have not been here to very long, don't take my short temper to heart. i tend to be pretty blunt and it does put some folks off....i don't know why.....
