Skip to comments.Karl Rove To Sarah Palin: Get A "Thicker Skin"
Posted on 08/25/2011 9:01:23 AM PDT by indianrightwinger
Karl Rove responds to controversy over his speculation if Fmr. Gov. Sarah Palin will indeed enter the GOP field. Rove said chances are she will jump in, but was not definitive in his observation.
"I'm mystified," Rove said about reaction to his speculation. "Look, she is all upset about this saying how I am trying to sabatouge her in some way. How do I speculate on her future."
"Look, if she doesn't want to be speculated about a potential presidential candidate there is an easy way to end the speculation. Simply say 'I'm not running.' Instead, every time she pops up in the public eye like she did on CNN, at the Iowa State fair a short number of days ago. she said 'I haven't made a decision.'"
"I'm just speculating that more likely than not she is going to be a candidate."
"Now I said 'I wouldn't bet a lot of money on it' because it is such a close thing and I am not privy to her thought-making process. But it is sign of enormous thin-skin that if we speculate about her, she gets upset. And I suspect if we didn't speculate about her, she would be upset and getting ways to get us to speculate about her."

Karl Rove to consumers of political news: Pay attention to meeeeeeee!
It’s not her skin thickness, Karl.
She doesn’t like you or the rest of the establishment RINO’s.
Get a grip and speculate all you want.
Another false premise reported as news from the MSM.
There is no person, male or female, who has been attacked like Sarah Palin has. She has thick skin.
I am a big fan of SP. Love her dearly. However, among the people I know who are not, they commonly cite the fact that she resigned her job as a governor of Alaska. I think this will come back to haunt her. My wife is an independent voter-—does not like BHO at all. But she said of SP, if she can’t handle all of the flak she was getting in Alaska, how is she going to handle it on a national level? I had no ready response.
I have never heard Sarah say she was upset with anything Rino Rove had to say, he is just trying to keep himself in the spot light.
Sarah to Karl: “Grow a pair, Nancy”
Yeah, I’m getting sick of Hannity and others calling him the Architect . . . He’s a RINO, hanging around well past his time, and playing into to hands of Keith Overbite and all the other worthless a$$holes on the left.
If he doesn’t have a job, then why not retire or something. All he does is give the left reasons to continue attacking Palin and Bachmann, two very lovely and well-accomplished women. What has he done?
I don't trust the guy; I don't trust his motives. And I have not donated to the RNC since; I give funds directly to specific candidates only.
Karl, take your own advice. As your conduct over the 2010 Delaware Senate campaign shows, you are one of the top 5 thinnest skinned people in politics.
Sadly, I agree with Rove on this. For this voter, I’d really like to know if she is a candidate in 2012 or not. Can’t think of a reason why she is not letting the voters know one way or another. For me, this approach has gotten tiresome and I wonder how she would deal with a national emergency. No attacks please—I do not dislike her personally; in fact to me she is a very remarkable woman. I believe others feel the same way. IMHO
Sounds like the right-wing Leftists (aka RINOs,) like RINO Rove, are getting a little miffed because she isn’t talking with them about what she is planning to do!
I got sick of sycophant Hannity when he had leg tingles for Rudy Giuliani....back in the last presidential election season....
....I lost all respect for Hannity at that time...haven't listened to or watched him since.
Rove has a point. How can Sarah be upset at speculation about her potential candidacy when she is touring the country in a bus and shaking hands in Iowa? Her rabid followers on FR seem to have the same thin-skin as well if anything less than glowing is posted about her.
RomneyBOT wussy, Tokyo Rove projecting is."
