Karl Rove addressed expectant conservatives today with a speech sponsored by the American Enterprise Instituite. He didn't disappoint, even taking a few questions.
This speech follows another address that he made last Friday, which generally followed the same talking points:
Rove understands the mood of the country. He gets it. He also gets the poll numbers (and the difference between job approval and personal approval).
What came across in both Rove appearances is that, one, he's engaged, focused and ready for the hand to hand combat that Republicans should be ready to wage in the coming months with Democrats.
