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."
Actually, that kind of reminds me of this guy:
But to call Obama coolly arrogant is to pretty much ignore the entire history of the Bush family and alcohol abuse. Is that really what Rove is channeling here? That doesn't sound like the Obama we've come to know...you know, the guy who can actually wear a cowboy hat:
Something got you running scared, Karl?
Something about this guy got you a little panicked? He sure looks like a hard sell to the American people. He looks like the 2008 version of a Bob Dole meltdown. Because I can guarantee you, the only one standing around in a country club with a hottie on his arm is the snarly looking guy who called his wife a "cunt" in front of people.
