Ingraham: "Is anyone going to run as a Bush Republican in 2012 and if so who?" Rove: "Every one of them is going to run as a Bush Republican by saying 'I want to continue to fight the war on terror' -- with maybe one or two exceptions -- and, 'I want to continue the Bush tax cuts

Actually, the “blue bloods” comment WAS necessary. One thing about Sarah to be admired is she doesn’t take any guff. Unlike the blue blood Bushes who sat back and let the dems set the terms of debate.

Sarah’s comment might not have been necessary, but neither was Mrs. Bush’s snarky comment - that’s what started it.

EXACTLY....Mrs. Bush (the elder) did herself NO PR good with her “snarky comment.” Lowered my opinion of her....sounds as though they are resentful and that Palin may be an obstacle to them continuing THEIR dynasty, i.e. Jeb, etc.

Karl’s upset that a Republican would upset the teacart at the country club.

Democrats treat politics like a barroom brawl fight...the Pubbies traditionally like a dispute over country club rules-wouldn’t want to appear “unseemly” in public now would we....

That is what I like about Reagan, he wasn’t a “go along to get along” type of person and didn’t play games. That is what I didn’t like about Bush especially Bush Sr. More of “go along to get along” even when being talked down by the democrats. Reagan didn’t put up with it !

Put Rove in the laundry, wash him and bleach him. hang hin out to dry, and retire him.

He is a s bad as the leftist prigs we are fighting.

He is an elitist of the worst kind , who would sell out America, rather than to allow a populist conservative movement, democratically elected, run the nation.

In fact Rove is whay may be called “ A radical leftist liberal fascist enabler.”

Time to retire Karl. Your usefulness is at an end.

Dear Tokyo,

Times have changed.

Many Americans now recognize RINOs for the anti-Constitutionalist elitists that they are. Their time (and yours, apparently) has passed.

Of course, he’ll run. That’s what Barbara was attacking Palin for. “Go back to Alaska, Sarah. Leave Presidential politics to the pros.”

I am sick and tired of the Bushes. GW had his chance and failed to return the country to its founding principles. He was the answer to the wrong issues.

Have you ever hoped someone was so wrong that it hurt? Perhaps Rove knows that the RNC is only looking to support RINO’s. Rino’s that are clones to Bush. I wish there was a way to clone Reagan. Just a thought.

This kind of puts into perspective the oft quoted saying about politicians, “they’re all the same.”

Bush Sr. didn’t have Reagan’s resolve and determination to accomplish things he believed in. Bush Jr., I agree, was more of a go-long guy who trusted too much in those he put into positions of authority - it was just his management style and it led to his being ‘handled’ by people like Rove. What I hear in Palin is the return of resolve and determination. Our nation desperately needs determined conservatives and if they are blue bloods or whatever, that’s fine, Rove should realize this too. But it is not surprising to hear critics from those who used to have more power and who sense that their voices will be diminished. What is going to be tragic are the number of hours fellow republicans will spend watching their backs in the months to come. The common opponent is Obama, his policies and his ideologies. I wonder if Rove thinks we have enough ammunition to shoot both at ourselves AND at Obama. It is tedious of him to pick one little comment, the word ‘blueblood’, and make an issue of it. Perhaps he wants to stay in the news cycle or perhaps he has someone else in mind for the presidency. Either way, he has not been a team player for a few months now. But like him or not, Rove will be in the picture for quite a while.

Not only are Karl’s repeated comments about Palin ‘unnecessary’, but she’s paid presumably even more than he is to offer her views as a professional pundit herself.

i’m not perfect but the pulse here on this sort of stuff has come more around to my way of thinking than vice versa

i never liked any of that too much and they got less appealing the more we learned

they way they demagogued amnesty and harriet miers didn't work for me

I agree. It was completely unnecessary for Barbara Bush to say what she said and...oh, he meant it was completely unnecessary for Sarah Palin to say what she said. Well, if Mrs. Bush hadn’t said anything about Mrs. Palin, Mrs. Palin wouldn’t have had the need to say anything back.

Now the Roves and the Bushes combine the worst of both worlds: going along to get along with the Dems and the MSM—but playing ugly games to attack Palin and her disciples.

Rove says a lot of things I agree with but the fact of the matter is the mismanagement of the Bush presidiency brought discredit on conservatism and paved the way for Obama’s election. “Blue-Blooded” Republicanism has failed; it’s nothing more than a slower pace toward EuroSocialism. Sarah has neatly drawn the battle lines. Conservatives want fundamental change. Blue Bloods can get on the bus or get out of the way.
