It might be time to turn Karl Rove out of his role as GOP strategist. During a panel discussion at the Aspen Ideas Festival late last month, Rove called Representative Amash ( R-MI) “the most liberal Republican…because he is a 100% purist libertarian.” Rove went on to criticize Amash, adding “…and if it’s not entirely perfect, ‘I’m voting with Nancy Pelosi.”
Congressman Amash got fact-y on Twitter in reply:

These inconvenient ( for Rove and his ilk) numbers are backed up by Amash’s scorecard with numerous conservative think tank groups.

You would think that after losing $325 million in donor money on the 2012 election, Rove would be a little more careful about his research. Luckily, we have people like Amash to correct him, when he is wrong. Again.
