Listening to Karl Rove is like drinking raw eggs
Coach is Right ^ | 3/17/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Listening to what Karl Rove has to say about elective politics–or most everything else–is about as inviting as swallowing a few raw eggs. He is so consistently wrong that only the consistently wrong GOPe can stand to listen to him.

Half-truths and ignoring reality comprise his inexcusable M.O.

Almost before the last bit of confetti fluttered to the floor at David Jolly’s victory party last Tuesday night, Rove was leading the GOP establishment’s charge to “caution against thinking he won because of Obamacare.” Despite Democrat Alex Sink’s support of the mess Barack Obama made of our once great healthcare delivery system Rove was unable, or more to the point, unwilling to acknowledge she doomed herself by talking about “repair not repeal.”

Sink brought many tangible advantages into the campaign to fill a vacant Congressional seat, but Jolly won largely by...

Not sure what raw eggs have to do with this. They have no taste and can be healthy.

Should be more like swallowing guinea pig cage bedding. Tastes like crap and is dry and smelly.

Is Rove still around? I have unplugged myself from everyday politics. It’s great. I never see or hear any of these people any more.

There were a lot of people here who praised Rove when Bush Jr was POTUS. Some of us saw him for what he really was and that is nothing more than a loud mouth elitist who won one or two battles but for the most part is a jerk.
He is no grand stagiest. He is just a whore.

People say the funniest things to avoid saying turds, but we all know Rove is handing them out to anyone stupid enough to take them.

“Listening to Karl Rove is like drinking raw eggs”

Not really.

For enough money I would drink raw eggs.

Karl Rove is a living example of the difference between merely having an exceptional memory, and actually useable intelligence. Rove knows all about yesterday's voting patterns; he is absolutely clueless as to how to change those patterns in a constructive direction. He is the last person in America to whom anyone should look for campaign advice.

How many times are those, who should know better, going to listen to the fantasy "pragmatism" of this unprincipled buffoon?

See Karl Rove Revisited. It was Rove's folly that led to the disastrous Republican defeat in 2006, which lost Congress, and set up the greater disaster in 2008. (2006 Disaster)

Just think of what could have been done with the $300,000,000 that Rove squandered in 2012, if any significant part of it had been turned over to the campaigns of young, and principled, Conservative candidates?

“I have unplugged myself from everyday politics.”

Same here. I turn on FnF once in awhile; but that’s it. I am fed up with the repub infighting between the GOPe and the republican ‘new guys’. Really ticked at Paul Ryan possibly apologizing to the Black Caucus about the inner city comment Paul made.

Well, Bush did refer to him fondly as “Turdblossom”...

As long as Rove can divert efforts and money away from principled political candidates, it is not "great" to just tune him out. He is not a harmless distraction; his totally undeserved reputation is a real malignancy.

His advice needs to be challenged; his reasoning needs to be taken apart. The consequences of a "victory," based upon his avowed willingness to compromise the most basic American principles, needs to be carefully examined.

as publicly distasteful as Carl Rove is it defies common since why Fox News keeps giving him face time. The same for MCamnesty. I turn the channel or hit mute when they or the obozo comes on.

ha! I don't even know the comment to which you are referring to...it's liberating. I hate them all. Except Palin and a few others.

I still listen to some podcasts of shows that go much deeper than the Dog and Pony show of the mainstream "oppostion". I can't listen to Rush go on and on as though we are just living in ordinary times, Republicans mostly good, Democrats bad. A pox on all their houses. Or Hannity...I catch about 15 minutes of Beck taking my son to school but if he's doing the morning clown posse routine with his side kicks or kumbaya BS, he goes too.

The Republicans hire people like Rove who can tell you how many Republicans there are on a block. The Democrats hire people who tell them how to get more Democrat voters on a block.

An apt way to state the point.

No, listening to Karl Rove is like drinking a bottle of this:

I can get salmonella from listening to Carl Rove? Maybe that is why I find him so repulsive.

Karl Rove is every bit as much my enemy as Barack Obama.

I know I’m weird. But this movie was funny to me.

In this scene, Napoleon tries to earn summer cash. And they break for lunch at the farm.
