Rove: Obama's the Guy at the Country Club Holding a Martini Making Snide Comments About Everyone Else (Jake Tapper, June 23, 2008, ABC NEWS: Political Punch)

ABC News' Christianne Klein reports that at a breakfast with Republican insiders at the Capitol Hill Club this morning, former White House senior aide Karl Rove referred to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, as "coolly arrogant."

"Even if you never met him, you know this guy," Rove said, per Christianne Klein. "He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."

Rove said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., "needs to come right at him."

Senator Obama thinks he can hide behind his race, but it's not being black that distances him from most Americans--it's his liberal elitism. Strip away the identity politics and he's John Kerry.

Wait a sec--Rove said Obama is like the guy standing against the wall at the country club? Racist! Racist! There's a racist Republican on the attack again!

Look, he's a gun-grabbing, commie-loving, baby-murderer, and--oh, did I tell you--he's Black.

This guy is beneath contempt, whether he's black, white or purple. He's run his whole life far, far to the left, and now he thinks he's going into the stealth mode, pretending to be an American, pretending to be a Christian and who knows what else.

The swindle now is that we're not supposed to go after his record because he's hiding behind his color. Well, STFB, Effendi.

I know John Kerry, John Kerry is a friend of mine (well, not really), Obama is no John Kerry.

(and when John Kerry's out of one's league, one has no business being President)

He didn't mean the wall of the caddy shack.

...and Kerry would have won save for the "wahoos" who put Marriage on the Ohio ballot.

If the election were held anytime after mid-2005, Kerry would have won.

We can be thankful McCain isn't dubya, because he'd be crushed if he was.

No, Carl Rove would have just got Guardian readers to write to more people...

If you reran Kerry v. W today the result would be the same.

As the man said, if the election were held today, I'd be very surprised.
