"We know how to spend our money better than government."
- America's Millionaires and Billionaires
Maybe they'd like to be part of us 47%-ers after all:
Karl Rove and his investors were the biggest losers on Election Day.
The Republican strategist created the model for outside money groups that raised and spent more than $1 billion on the Nov. 6 elections -- many of which saw almost no return for their money.
Rove, through his two political outfits, American Crossroads and Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, backed unsuccessful Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney with $127 million on more than 82,000 television spots, according to Kantar Media's CMAG, an ad tracker based in New York. Down the ballot, 10 of the 12 Senate candidates and four of the nine House candidates the Rove groups supported also lost their races.
These rich Republicans were so short-sighted, so greedy, so selfish that they wouldn't dare pay another cent in taxes to fix our roads, build schools or invest in new energy.
I'm almost glad they threw there money away on this hateful venture.
But I'm sure everyone, including them, knows this money would have been better spent by government on projects that would have benefited us all -- including the most greedy and hateful among us. They are still, after all, Americans like you and me....
