Real estate mogul Donald Trump said that Republican political consultant Karl Rove, who served as a senior adviser and deputy chief of staff to President George W. Bush, was responsible for helping Barack Obama win the presidency in the 2008 election.
Then, commenting on how a political action committee founded by Rove raised and then spent money in the 2012 elections, Trump said, The thing that really bothers me, however, is he raised $400 millionspent $400 million on fighting Democratsdidnt win a race. Didnt do well in any races and just took $400 million and threw it out the window.

Has Trump been converted from being a conservative ‘Rat?
Trump is right. Good for him!
Rove wiped his elitist backside with donations and flushed $400 million down the toilet..
and FOX broadcasting pays him to do it..
You & me both! Sometimes the Trumpster is good....othertimes he will fall in with the deranged libturds. As I recall, I believe he supported 0dumb0 in 2008 and then switched in 2012. My question to him, would be how could he be so stupid to support 0dumb0 in 2008 (as well as his model daughter) and now they oppose him? I guess I would say that Trump flips back & forth on issues, and mainly just shoots from the hip, primarily because he's a billionaire and can do so. And just when you think he's finally reigned in, he will turn around make some stupid, embarrassing & self-defeating comment.
That said, yeah, Rove is the enemy.

I think the reason his actions are so puzzling to us is that we have actual core convictions, whereas people like him are just opportunists who act out of self-interest always. So someone like that can vote for a charlatan like Obama if he thinks he will personally benefit from an Obama administration.
Personally, I can’t stand Trump, and I do not understand the FReepers who fall all over him just because he says something we like from time to time.
This might seem a little like inside Cricket show talk.
But Trump said this yesterday 2/13/ on Mark Levin’s talk show. If there was another source because Trump may have made several guest appearances on different venues promoting his book. Chapman should have cited them.
Unless this was an 1 on 1 interview
I think you hit the nail on the head with Trump... He does not really have any core convictions. Any position (or support for a candidate) can be altered if he feels there is something to gain by it.
And that is different from how Karl Rove thinks in exactly what way?
You won't get any argument from me on that. I despise Karl Rove, always have, always will! Plus he looks like the Pillsbury Dough Boy, no slam intended against Pillsbury, just Karl Rove.
Well, Rove didn't throw it ALL out the window, I'm sure a hefty chunk of that fell right into his pocket.
You are correct.
