While President Obama scored a political victory by passing the stimulus package less than a month after being sworn in, the plan was "rushed" through Congress, former White House adviser Karl Rove said in an interview on NBC's "Today" show this morning.

"Well it's a great accomplishment -- 667 hours and 10 minutes, that's how long the president has been president, and they got this bill done in less than that time. On the other hand, it was rushed at the end, and, as a result, people's confidence in this bill is necessarily shaken," Rove said when asked if passage of the stimulus drew his admiration.
