That’s just blood under the bridge

This is a mixture of “water under the bridge” (something that has happened that cannot be changed) and I think “blood in the water” (exhibition of weakness from another party in a competitive situation).   The speaker wanted to say water under the bridge but perhaps he was still very upset about an outcome he could not change (Karl Rove?).
