How to Deflect a Comment 101

Glad I got to see this on This Week this morning.  Karl Rove gives a great lesson on how you take a comment and turn it into anti-American and military hating.

Plouffe: “If Karl and a lot of Republicans want to call the election already, they ought to break out that ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner.”

Rove: “That’s cheesy, David. … You should not denigrate the mission of the USS Abraham Lincoln.”
