    Fox News contributor Karl Rove was criticized in the media for objecting when the channel called Ohio for Barack Obama on election night. The state of Ohio did in fact go for Obama and the channel was correct in making that prediction. Like many other Fox News commentators, Rove had mistakenly forecast a Romney victory. He was only alone in thinking this was still possible as election night wore on and the results from Ohio came in.

    A more important controversy, however, is what Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush, did with the $300 million he raised from conservative donors for the purpose of defeating Barack Obama and electing a Republican Senate.


    "The bottom line is that the Republican Party cannot afford any more Rove Tuesdays," Ward and Clews argue. "The further he leads the party away from its core values, the more distant its chances of regaining either its dignity, or its dominance. And the more money he siphons away from worthy conservative organizations that reflect and project the party's principles, the less chance the GOP has of reactivating its critical base."
