Karl Rove reveals why he’s enthusiastic about Beto working for governor of Texas – "Nothing is as profitable as failure for him"
When former Bush Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove appeared on Fox News Thursday night, he explained why he was "excited" to see former Rep. Beto O & # 39; Rourke (D-TX), who will become the governor of the state ran, and not for the reasons you may think.
Rove calls Beto O'Rourke
Rove pointed out that O’Rourke ran unsuccessfully for the US Senate and Democratic President nomination, so he is likely to lose again for Texas governor.
"He plans to run for governor last year," said Rove. "And he was the captain who was in charge of registering Democratic voters and ending the voting effort."
“They released an autopsy report this week saying we don't know how or why, but we lost the voter registration battle to the Republicans who registered us by at least 88,000 and we have voting efforts lost. " he added.
"They expected that they would win the Senate race, that they could carry the state for Biden, that they would get at least three and maybe even seven seats in the Republican Congress," he added.

"You have zero," said Rove. “They expected to take over the Texas House of Representatives and were making absolutely no profits. You lost the race in the Senate by double digits. The president won with a comfortable re-election. "
"That was the practical work of Robert Francis O’Rourke. How do you reward that?" Rove continued. "They say we want to lead him to governor. God. The Texas Democrats can't pull themselves together."

"I look forward to seeing Robert Francis O'Rourke on the campaign trail because he's been out there about a year and a half since he lost his bleak race for the presidency. You know, nothing is as successful as failure for him. "

Rove speaks Trump
In the same interview, Rove voiced fears that Trump might use his CPAC speech this weekend to re-claim that his election was stolen.
"His last two speeches on January 5th and January 6th would indicate that, at that point, he -" I'm angry. I was defeated. The election was stolen from me. I got 74 million votes, but it was stolen from me. People in my party who are very weak. I'll punish them and go after other Republicans. I will declare the civil war. If you're not with me, you're against me and I'll beat you, "said Rove." That wasn't a particularly good tone.
Rove went on, if Trump goes down this path, "it will be a very difficult recovery."
