Rove Credits Obama For GOP Victory, Not Tea Party
Fox News ^ | 11/03/2010 | Oshkalaboomboom

Posted on 11/03/2010 5:00:42 AM PDT by Oshkalaboomboom

Karl Rove was just on the Fox News morning show. When asked who deserves the credit for the Republican tsunami he mentioned Obama but no credit at all for the Tea Party. He also gloated over his forecasting prowess.

Exit polls in Delaware showed that Christine O'Donnell won a majority of Independents but didn't have enough Republican support. Does Rove take credit for that also?

Hard to argue with.

NRA indicated that our pResident was the best Gun salesman ever.

Our pResident certainly paved the road for the Tea Party didn't he.

Don't get me wrong though. The Tea Party (Movement) is here to stay. Conservatism is back.

What is Tokyo Rove smoking? If it weren’t for the Tea Party, he and his RINO friends would be lying on the ground begging Obama for mercy. They’d be taking further losses this midterm as the Obama/Democrat steamroller mowed them down.

Rove is kidding himself if he thinks he is still in the catbird’s seat. He has been forever branded as a RINO after the Christine O’Donnell debacle and nothing he does from now on will make that go away. Say ‘goodnight’ Karl.

1) Rove only has it half right, it was Obama and Pelosi that killed Democrats.

2) I made more accurate predictions than him, I predicted a huge Dem loss for yesterday back in 2008, as I predicted McCain would lose.

3) I dont know about the Tea party but those 2009 rallies and Obama-care town-hall meetings started the fall of democrats.

But FNC isnt going to give me that cushy job he has.

He’s kind of right...without Obama we would not have the “tea party”. It was his policies and his lack of consideration for the will of the American people that caused the phenomenon in the first place.

It was 0bama’s agenda. But the Tea Party was established BECAUSE of 0bama’s agenda and the freedoms taken away, the horribly wasteful spending and growth of the federal government that helped the Tea Party be successful.

Karl was both right and wrong. You can’t discount the power of the Tea Party.

Every single week, Gov. Palin took on Obama and the corrupt DNC.
Meanwhile, the other RINOs (led by Rove) attacked
select GOP-election-chosen candidates thought to eventually be a threat
to .... Mitt Romney.
Meanwhile, Romney’s poodles in California and Massachusetts
appear to have been clubbed to death by citizens who hate Romney,
his surrogates and his RomneyCARE.

Rove has ruined forever the opportunity to put a GOP candidate in TODAY
before January 2011.

Tea Party has a lot to do with State Legislatures flipping from blue to red. Grassroots ground game. Remember, Tea Party is in infancy stage. KR can toot his horn all he wants, but it seems clear that business is not as usual.

All Rove cares about is keeping the same ruling political class in place.

They all need to be swept aside.

Good God, can we just leave him aside and stop shrieking about his buffoonish behavior?

What is wrong with us? The Tea Party has just had a major electoral victory, enough with this petty whining about one commentator.

We’re the winners, let’s act like it, and ignore the buzzing of meaningless commentators. No wonder the cable talking heads think they’re so important.

Sounds to me like the Republican Party through Christine under da bus (and maybe Joe Miller also) to keep them Tea Partiers under control. If so it's war! And Karl Rove you are on the front line.

Yea, Rove annoys the hell out of me these days. I find myself turning the channel when I see him on the tube ever since his O’Donnell primary meltdown. He just about broke down crying when his RINO good friend and I suspect client lost. But I’d have to say there is a grain of truth in your post’s headline. ZerO and his “Change” is what brought the tea-party movement together in the first place. Of course, Mr insider-establishment conveniently leaves out “the rest of the story...”, as Paul Harvey would say.

Um, and who exactly did 0 rile up, Karl. It sure as s*it wasn't the Republicans who couldn't even bring themselves to vote for Christine O'Donnell.

Hey Karl, do you think Pat Toomey might win in Pa? How about Rubio in Florida?

Just imagine how much better of this country would be if we had Arlen Specter AND Charlie Crist as respected Republican members of the U.S. Senate /s

Concur w/your analysis on the DE Senate race.

Rove and his type must be dealt with; however, going after FOX, as some are suggesting, is likely not going to be enough to accomplish what needs to be done. Tea Partiers need to let future candidates know that they will not support ANY candidate who hires Rove or allows him to be associated w/their campaign.

Rove is not an “impartial analyst” as he now likes to portray himself. He is, and always has been, a political hack and “gun for hire.” He serves whatever master will pay him the most money. Karl Rove is about Karl Rove; simple as that. His name needs to become anathema to Tea Partiers and Conservative politics in general.

Rove was the co chair of college Young Republicans, and came to Swampington at age 21, picked by HW “No New Taxes” Bush. He’s been there ever since. Never had a real job save being a establishment coatholder and court vizer. He’s a top, trickled down to the unwashed boobs guy. Elitists, wonk to the core. Not very educated in a classical old school liberal way. He’s lived amongst lawyers, staff and politicians all his life. Anything good, he’s in on, anything bad it because you didn’t follow my advice or the people didn’t ‘get’ our message. Heads I win, tails you lose type of guy.

Rove and the NRA repeatedly shot themselves in their feet this election.

The National Rifle Association threw all its members under the bus by endorsing Democrats from coast to coast.

Rove cost us control of the Senate and probably a few more House races.

The Bush family put the GOP in a 20 year decline. If the GOP had embraced and extended Reaganism, instead of reverting back to its elitist roots, the country would be much better off, and Democrats would be a permanent minority.

That’s two of us. Keep that recipe for crow on hold.

BTW, if we are passing around high fives, we could have had a Republican Senate, if KR would have eaten another truck, instead of trashing REPUBLICAN nominees. He trashed Angle, O’Donnell and Miller. Thanks, you FB.

All I can say folks is lets keep our eyes on the Republicans and keep their feet to the fire. Without the Senate they cant override Obamacare but they can cut funds. In two years if they havent tried we must put some Independents in there. We know Democrats march in lockstep!

so many opportunities have been squandered since 1988 but it looks like we may be on the road to turning things around

Rove is correct in that w/o Obama there is no tea party movement. It’s not really much different in that Clinton gave rise to the ‘94 Contract w/ America election.

Now here is where the difference is — Contract w/ America was a campaign prop. and only self-policed by the winners where convenient. The TP will be actively monitoring candidate performance and if they fall into the typical politician mode will not think twice to mobilize against them.

I just hope that, if a conservative candidate does win the GOP nomination in '12, that he/she will not feel obligated to selected a 'centrist/moderate/country-club' candidate as VP.
