I thought Krugman was being facetious, or sarcastic, when he asked:
Well, what if we’ve been misunderstanding Rove? We’ve been seeing him as a man dedicated to helping angry right-wing billionaires take over America. But maybe he’s best thought of instead as an entrepreneur in the business of selling his services to angry right-wing billionaires, who believe that he can help them take over America. It’s not the same thing.But over at TPM I see this:
Thankfully for future GOP campaigns, the Romney team and Karl Rove seem to have successfully convinced the GOP’s billionaire mega-donors that it was all money well-spent and Romney was on course to a smashing victory until Chris Christie rode into final days on Unicorn Sandy.They quote from Washington Post story:
“A lot of people feel like Christie hurt, that we definitely lost four or five points between the storm and Chris Christie giving Obama a chance to be bigger than life,” said one of Romney’s biggest fundraisers, who requested anonymity to speak candidly.So, ummmm.... maybe not?
