Karl Rove is right to call Barack Obama "a sore loser" for failing to publicly congratulate Hillary Clinton on her West Virginia win, Ed Morrissey writes. Obama also missed a political opportunity to call for unity, perhaps evidence that the Illinois senator is tired, Morrissey adds. The blogger, looking at yet another special House election loss for Republicans Tuesday, also tells readers to "get ready for the deluge" of more GOP losses in November. Just like in 2006, when Republicans lost control of both houses of Congress, their candidates and leadership haven't stressed fiscal conservative principles, Morrissey writes.
