Former Bush administration political guru Karl Rove called a Democratic add targeting him "pathetic" during an appearance on Fox News.

Rove claimed the ad simply does not make sense, and blasted the ad as being poorly circulated.

"This is an effort to divert attention from growing concerns about their plans to expand the deficit, expand the budget, borrow a lot more money, and it's pathetic," Rove said. "It's lowering and demeaning to the White House."
