Obama’s Attacks Have Netted Karl Rove’s Political Group A $13 Million Windfall
Well, at least he’s finally stimulating one sector of the economy.
The GOP-aligned American Crossroads said Wednesday it has raised over $13 million since coming under attack from President Obama.
The group and its campaign affiliate, Crossroads GPS, said it had easily surpassed its initial fundraising goal of $50 million to spend on behalf of Republicans, and has increased its target to $65 million, according to spokesman Jonathan Collegio.
The boffo numbers come after a week in which Obama led Democrats in attacks on the group, which is affiliated with GOP strategists Ed Gillespie and Karl Rove. Both are veterans of President George W. Bush’s White House.
Does anyone else find it ironic that – from gun sales to Rush Limbaugh’s ratings to Karl Rove’s fundraising – everything Obama’s done that’s resulted in success and prosperity has been unintentional?Tags: Barack Obama, campaign finance, karl rove
