Karl Rove completely defeats the conservative message. (yes you Fox News vanity)
(vanity)

Posted on 02/18/2012 5:55:00 AM PST by Cringing Negativism Network

I haven't watched Fox News Channel since the day Fox and Drudge all went on their Romney brainwashing spree.

Today I decided I would watch my television before browsing FR.

Tried CNN, and within 15 seconds of turning on the channel there was some "news" about some gay guy.

Sure it's possible, maybe something actually did happen to a gay guy this week, but I am certain there were at least 10,000 more important things which happened in the world just so far this morning than some gay guy.

Media, just shut up about gay guys.

We don't actually care about gay guys, and we change the channel every time you obsess about gay guys. It's why you are forever losing market share.

You are not a gay channel CNN. Or maybe you are?...

Frankly I am completely sick and tired of forever hearing about gay guys (I never hear about straight guys, why should I hear about gay guys all the time), and so I turned off CNN once again.

Idiot liberal "journalists" who are actually just gay propagandists.

Changed the channel to Fox...

And there was Karl Rove.

Dammit, Fox.

Of all the "conservative" spokespeople in all the gin joints in all the world.

Why. Must we be subjected to that unpleasant, uninspired, uninformative Potato Head.

So I turned my television off.

The “News Cycle” is completely irrelevant.

Fact is, the RINOs like Rove don’t believe in conservatism. That’s why they’ll say Santorum, Gingrich or Paul are “too conservative” to win. They say they won’t appeal to moderate voters. They don’t believe if you present conservative vs. liberalism to an undecided voter that the conservative will be seen as a better option.

Not that it means anything..but which Conservative candidate was he bashing this morning? I imagine it was Santorum’s turn.
Did he have his “Mitt or Bust” sweatshirt on?

Actually Rove was attempting to criticize Obama for the price of gas.

Ironically that’s a potentially powerful message.

Rove completely ruined it. Who wants to hear Rove talk about gas prices??

Rove is counter-productive. He’s a wet blanket. He’s the single worst conservative spokesperson I’ve ever listened to.

RINO? It is the Republican Party; not the Conservative Party. These guys are not RINOs, they are true blue Republicans doing what Republicans do.

Does anyone know much about his Crossroads PAC that he claims is going to raise enough money to single handedly defeat Bam?

And I had the misfortune of also catching a minute or two of Byron York on Fox yesterday. Are he and Rove going to go on a Rino Road show, traveling cross country in a painted bus(singing “American Pie” at the top of their lungs),stopping at Tea Party gatherings to shake marbles in milk cartons?

Which one is Thelma and which Louise?

Read the Platform. The RINOs don't support our Platform... that means they only give lip-service to being a Republican. I think the definition still fits.

We are seeing a marriage of government, the media, and corporate interests that are in bed with government. This form of government is rightly called fascism.

Don’t expect anything other that propaganda from any of the networks...they have all chosen side...most have signed up with Obama...but even the Republicans have joined TeamRomney.

This is the new normal, get used to it.

You realize, of course, that he is absolutely correct.

No true conservative has a chance of winning in this country. Too many people depend on government “entitlements”, among the most egregious of which, are the government school collectives where children are brainwashed into socialism, homosexual normalization, and are taught to despise the patriarchal traditional family.

Many Leftist college students will vote at least twice. In their home towns by absentee ballot, and again at least once in their campus town.

Many Leftist snowbirds will do the same.

Illegal immigrants will be allowed to vote.

This nation is finished as a Constitutional Republic, at least until we raise a generation of children who have been properly educated.

To do that, conservatives must breed copiously and educate their own children, either at home, or in cooperatives formed by like-minded parents.

You're exactly right. We use RINO to mean non-conservative Republicans, but in truth we are the RINOs, as the elites are determining what their party is and is not. It's getting closer and closer to time for conservatives to just turn their backs on the Republicans completely.

I hate to say it, but I think you're right. For the reasons you mentioned, the Republican party will go the way of the Whig party. Then our two choices will be hard left Democratic candidates or soft left Democratic candidates.

The only way out is another Reagan, and it had better be soon (see my tagline). But I don't see the next Reagan out there now. Maybe it was Palin a couple of years ago, but her missteps and the MSM ruined her.

I don't watch Fox but my better half said O’Really claimed the contraception debate was causing a drop in ratings for Fox. I think it's the 24/7 Romney commercial. Anyone know where I can find TV ratings?

Now that for the most part Freepers will agree that Rove is RINO. Keep in mind this was W's right hand man.

So the Freepers that got mad at W as being too much of a liberal were not so off after all. They just saw it sooner, then many people that were too dedicated to the Republican party vs. Conservatism.

I recall the Democrats getting mad at Ronald Reagan. Reagan's reply was “I never left the party... the party left me”.

Well many Freepers, Conservatives, Tea Party, etc... feel the EXACT same way with the Republican Party. It's astounding to see how the Republican Establishment has been forcing a Socialist like Romney down are throats. When we have a perfect opportunity to win an election.

It's amazing to me how a President with

horrible economy, high unemployment rate, high gas prices, taxing, regulating, spending like there is no tomorrow, American Hostages in Egypt (which the media will not even mention), blaming our country for every wrong in the world, fast and furious, etc.... has even a remote chance to be reelected?

Why would the Republican Party put a Democrat Light (aka Socialist) in office vs. a conservative that believes America's best days are ahead of us?

Answer: Because there is only one party in Washington. The sooner conservatives realize this the sooner we will be better off.

The Republican Party use to be an opposition party. Think that changed with the first Bush.
