Rove taking lessons from GOP defeat

Other than Mitt Romney, no one may have had a worse election than Karl Rove. Most of the candidates supported by the former Bush White House adviser and his political action committees were defeated. So what lessons does Rove (who will speak in Wichita later this month at the Kansas Livestock Association convention) take from the defeat? He wrote in the Wall Street Journal that Republicans need to learn from the Democratic get-out-the-vote effort, and that Republicans “must avoid appearing judgmental and callous on social issues.” He also said the GOP “must reduce the destructiveness of the presidential primaries,” and perhaps limit its number of primary debates. And he suggested holding the GOP national convention in late June instead of late August.
