Rove: Obama jobs speech ‘about politics’

Karl Rove, the top political adviser to former President George W. Bush, said Friday that President Obama’s decision to raise funds off his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress shows “that this is more about politics than it is about the economy.”

Appearing on Fox News, Rove criticized the content of an Obama fundraising email, saying that if the administration was seeking a bipartisian solution, it wouldn’t “immediately send out a fundraising email signed by the president decrying the political opposition for opposing a plan [he has] yet to lay out.”
