Karl Rove to Herman Cain: True or false?
Politico ^ | 11/31/11

Posted on 10/31/2011 8:25:28 PM PDT by truthandlife

Karl Rove said Monday that Herman Cain has failed to properly respond to the POLITICO report that at least two women accused him of inappropriate behavior, saying he needs to say “yes or no.”

“He’s not denying, but he ain’t responding and that’s not the best place to be,” Rove said on Fox News. “If these allegations are not true, say they aren’t true and put it behind you. If not, better get everything out sooner rather than later because in a situation like this, if there is something there, that something’s going to come out.” Continue Reading Text Size

Asked whether he considered the Cain campaign’s response to the allegations as sufficient, the former George W. Bush strategist answered “no,” criticizing the decision to evade questions about whether there were ever any financial settlements with the women.

“I think Geraldo had it right last night — you simply can’t say go talk to the National Restaurant Association and refuse to answer the question, ‘Were there any monetary settlements involved in these things.....’”

Rove added, “You can’t simply say go ask, go talk to somebody else. You either need to say yes or no. And if no, say no immediately. Say absolutely or not and get on with it. But if you’re sitting there saying go talk to somebody else, it’s not going to help you.”

Rove’s dirty tactics have backfired and only served to make Cain’s support even stronger.

Cain has already said it is not true. Rove ought to know this. So why is he harassing Cain about it?

Typical Establishment RINO.

When did Karl Rove become the spokesperson for the Republican Party? He's past his prime.

Karl, take your chalk board and go home.

With “friends” like Rove & the National Review who needs enemies? Whether you like Cain as a candidate or not (I do) we should be circling the wagons and calling out the blatantly unfair attack by Politico using vague charges and anonymous sources. Instead we get these thinly veiled attacks on Cain from those claiming to be conservatives.

There was a day I really liked Karl Rove...what the hell happened to him???

tonight on Bill O'R. show he had a shitty grin, that I would have loved to slap off his fat little cheeks, so I just turned the channel, then turned TV off until Greta came on..she did a great interview with Herman Cain..

The media in this country has really hit their lowest key for me...we MUST vote Obama and his gang OUT in Nov. 2012..

No they won’t. Moderate Dems are going to Romney. That was the lefts strategy all along. That is now in serious danger. Cain is under attack because Romney might just lose and that leaves Obama in the wind.

All of this has me thinking about this video taped off of Fox last Sunday. The video starts with Wallace and Hume writing off Cain. Then there was this statement from Chris Wallace (scrubbed from the original) at the 3:25 mark:

Chris Wallace: “Let’s tell a dirty little secret which is that we, because we don’t want this to be an Obama-Romney race next year, want to see a Republican primary race. And I get the sense, Kim, that you’re suggesting that there is going to be an effort, either on his part or our part to kind of resuscitate Rick Perry.”

Cain said no, emphatically.

Rove, you piece of crap. The fact you are ignoring his denial makes me suspect your involvement.

“There was a day I really liked Karl Rove...what the hell happened to him???”

Karl Rove hasn't changed since he entered politics. In the very first campaign he worked on, Rove stole some of the opposition's stationery and forged letters making the opponent look bad.

Rove always has been a corrupt, unethical, dishonest slimeball. You just liked him when he was being a corrupt, unethical, dishonest slimeball for Bush43.

Now we know why we have Obama.

Just think this a$$hole was advising Bush. No wonder why we have so many problems with Leftist.

With Republicans like Rove, who has time for enemies?

What a back stabbing jerk!

Rove is what he always was--a not very sagacious whore. Bush thought he was smart, which says nothing very good about Bush. Rove basically blew Bush's tenure by bad judgment and bad advice, contibuting to the washouts in 2006 and 2008.

He has no credibility outside the media beltway bell jar. Work for Romney? Hell yes, why not, nobody else wanted to pick up his option. Outside of Fox pity bits, he's been basically on the street since he sank the good ship Dubya.

If this attack did come from Rove or Perry supporters it was a huge mistake. Mr. Cain needs to stay in the spotlight to increase his name recognition. People in general have a short attention span for everything but sex. People only want to hear so much from Mr. Cain about the 999 plan, abortion, or foreign policy. He now has a whole new subject to talk about and look like he is the victim of some heinous smear campaign. This one probably got the attention of a bunch of people who still didn't even know who he was.

The whole “scandal” is a straw man that can easily be disproved. Mr. Cain is as straight an arrow as a man can be. I see only positives for him in this. It will get Mr. Cain a whole lot of more free air time on just about every network. And people are going to tune in and listen to him because it is about sex. His numbers are going to just keep getting stronger.

Yep, HC was the top of the news lineup most of the day, was the topic for most of both Rush, Ingraham, and Hannity, and was the main topic on at least three of my CA shows. Cain’s campaign says their rate of donations has doubled today.

Just wait until someone tattles on the campaign that perpetrated this smear.

The more the Roves of the world reveal their character, the more people will be drawn to the anti-establishment candidate. Rove can keep talking all he wants - every word will drive sane people farther from him and into the camp of somebody like Cain.

The more I see of the lies about Cain, the more I despise Romney - if only because he attracts followers who have no integrity. The lies will only backfire, as they are doing now.

I think a lot of people are finally realizing that Fox News is not conservative. Many ignored the sleaze and filth that Fox News thinks is news, and just a few days ago many ignored FNC conveniently forgetting to mention that the brother of the Saudi offering a $1 million bounty for Israeli soldiers is a News Corp investor.

But I think FReepers are finally coming around to seeing how horrible Fox News is since they are providing a platform for Rove to try and tear down every conservative candidate from Bachmann to Perry to Cain.

It's actually surprising, because FNC is/was run by a very good friend of Rick Perry's and Rudy Giuliani's. It makes me wonder who has their fingers in the pie.

Karl Rove is what is wrong with the GOP. He is the voice of the Washington Establishment and is totally in Romney’s camp. He opposes the Tea Party almost every time.
Karl, please just STFU.
