Posted on 02/12/2013 6:16:21 AM PST by Sir Napsalot
Karl Rove continues to explain why his political action committee is not anti-Tea Party and will help elect the most electable conservative candidate.

Looks like it turned out Roberts pick the same as Bush Sr.
Alito went through the confirmation not due to Arlen Specter's effort.
Just because a group is paranoid doesn’t mean that Rove isn’t out to get them.
The GOP is looking more and more like the damage control party of the NWO: They give us the illusion of choice but they are really on the same side as the Democrats.
Based on what assumptions, there Karl. Let us see your metrics, Chart Boy.
Karl Rove, you lie.
Rove is the one who said his group would fight the “far right”...
who gets to decide who is “the most electable” ??
He ain’t fooling anyone
Even in an alleged effort to reassure us he can’t help insulting us.
Paranoid = crazy.
Rove can do whatever he wants with his PAC. That’s his right. If he says he’s going to support the most electable conservative, then let’s see if he proves it in 2014. If he helps Tea Party favorites, especially after they win nominations, then good for us. However, his track record is less than stellar.
Paranoid?? Really? Specter over Toomey, Crist over Rubio, Grayson over Paul, Bennett over Lee, Dewhurst over Cruz, Castle over O’Donnell, Murkowski over Miller, Mack over Hasner, Fiorina over Devore. The list goes on and on.
And the establishment always says, support the republican nominee, like when Specter won over Toomey in 2004. But the establishment didn’t support and worked to remove Santorum two years later. The establishment didn’t get behind Christine O’Donnell but instead bad-mouthed her (good candidate or not, she was the republican nominee), when Miller won the primary in Alaska, they got behind Lisa Murkowski and her independent run.
At every turn, Rove and his buddies get behind the more moderate, more established, go-along candidate, then demand that all republicans support them. And at the same time, they work to undermine any conservative challenger in the primarie, or nominee in the general.
It’s not paranoia. It’s history and observation.
rinos are absolutely more dangerous than democrats, but they are really getting pegged, now, and they are squirming like the worms that they are.
Don’t vote for who you want, vote for who you think others want.
Kind of neurotic, eh?
Accusing others of paranoia while ignoring your own neurosis is sort of like what psychologists call “projection”.
Glad to see how well these psychic abilities of knowing what others want worked w/McCain and Romney.
Or perhaps they paid too much attention to phone and internet polls while ignoring the biggest poll of all - the 2010 election that put many tea party folks in office.
In that case, he’d simply be lying.
Lips moving = LIAR, LIAR
“Come with me!” said the spider to the fly.
I was wondering who was going to tell me when I should be paranoid.
The very words “tea party” were not even allowed to be uttered at the GOP convention, Palin was basically told to “get lost,” and state delegate rules were changed to kneecap the grassroots. That’s all I need to know about where the the GOP-establishment stands.
I trust Rove about as much as I trust Obama.
Don’t trust this guy. He is a Wolf is sheep’s clothing. He screwed us many, many years ago- and he will keep doing it , if it gets invited to the right cocktail parties.
” - - - the most electable conservative candidate. - - - “
Rove wants to control the following:
1.) Who HE thinks is a “Conservative” without listing ANY of HIS criteria.
2.) Who HE thinks will be elected, based on HIS opinion of what the voters will do on election day.
This is one arrogant S.O.B.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rove is desperate to claim leadership of those GOP-Elite who endorse, in Zombie Fashion, the next GOP Candidate to lose again to a Counterculture Democrat.
“Turd Blossom” Rove has proven that he is skilled at picking Candidates that are certain to lose.
Time to buy a few head of cattle Karly-Boy, and enjoy your own pasture filled with Turd Blossom Cow Pies as the Sun sets, without a tear, on the zombie GOP-Elite.
Rove. verb (intransigent): to roam or wander aimlessly about the political landscape.
Karl Rove: the man who got the last election so wrong now wants us to believe he can pick the most electable conservative candidate for the next election? He is still trying to convince us he is the smartest man in the room. Sorry Karl, I’m not buying what you’re selling.
The Republican Party can either have Liberal Losers like Rove, or the Conservative Grass Roots like me.
The best thing Rove could do is drop out of the political scene, and find something useful to do with his life. He can’t undo all the damage he has done, but making himself scarce would be a good start.
If conservatives ever stand a chance of taking over the Republican party, the likes of Rove and his peers must be disappeared. The GOP-e have a stranglehold on the GOP in the same manner the commies have taken over the RAT party. Between the two parties in America, they both have shifted in unison to the left. I grew up in the 1940s and my uncle was a US Rep from MN - he would be rolling over in his grave if he could see the landscape today, and he would not “serve”.
State delegate rules were changed to kneecap the grassroots.
Another politician telling us how we are....
This is why I have been advocating massive and dedicated conservative involvement in the Republican Party for awhile now. It is the best means I can see at both taking over the GOP and preventing an indefinite Democrat rule at the federal and eventually the state level. Too many on our side are still unwilling to do much more than vote and maybe donate money for campaigns. That simply isn’t cutting it. We need to be involved in the party system at all times.
Tokyo Rove is a loser.
Won 2000 by 535 votes and a court challenge.
Won 2004 by 12,000 votes in one state,Ohio.
Lost the 2006 mid-terms.
Fought against Tea Party candidates in 2010.
Some architect. More like a wrecking ball.
No, Rove, they just recognize that you’re a giant, establisment dumbass.
I am coming to the same conclusion. The GOPe would rather a Democrat win than a conservative. DeeDee Scozzafava comes to mind.
This reminds me of a scene in “Mars Attacks” where the martians are running through the streets zapping everyone around and one of them is carrying the translator machine saying, “We come in peace!”
He’s acting like a RAT mole.
