Karl Rove by all accounts is a Mitt Romney supporter. Karl Rove had been on TV saying Rick Perry's candidacy was not viable. Now Roves moved on to Herman Cain, whose candidacy hes doing all he can to sink, sidetrack, or otherwise derail. Just the other day on Fox News, Rove did his best Mr. Rogers imitation by holding up a small dry-erase board with words (and phrases) for the day like abortion, neoconservative, Afghan policy, etc. According to Rove, Cains gaffes in these areas have rendered him unelectable. How so? Well, according to Rove: I think it has created an image of him as not being up to this task. Thats really deadly. Next, Rove talked about how there was a hint that Cains numbers had peaked sometime between October 6th and October 10th, and they had begun to slide slightly since then. In other words, Move on, people; theres nothing to see here. However, the latest Zogby poll, taken October 18-21, well after Cains supposed slide had begun, shows that Cain would trounce Romney and, by extension, Rove into the ground. This is something Rove can't let happen and this desperate attempt to smear Cain has Rove's fingerprints and GOP treachery all over it for the shear fact that a non politician and outsider is unstoppable right now. The bottom line is that a super majority of Republicans DO NOT LIKE Romney. They rather have a conservative and if Romney gets the nomination, then Obama will win. Karl Rove doesn't see it that way though.
