I watched this live, and the arguments John Sununu made (while over-talking Andrea Mitchell) were 100% Rovian. Karl Rove’s strategy has always been to take your candidate’s weaknesses and attribute them to the opposition, aka projection.
Every one of the descriptions he ticked off to Mitchell applied to Willard Romney, not President Obama: Outsourcing, unemployment, taking money out of the country, caring only about himself, not caring about the people who support him, and desperate acts of class warfare.
