Skip to comments.Trump: ‘Karl Rove basically is a loser’
Posted on 12/06/2011 12:01:10 AM PST by Mozilla
In response to comments from Karl Rove that candidates should skip the debate at the end of December to be moderated by Donald Trump, Trump said that in his opinion Rove was highly overrated, and basically is a loser. Rove says that a Trump-moderated debate would trivialize the process
I dont think that Karl Rove is a smart person. I think hes highly overrated, said Trump, on a conference call about his new book. Ive watched Karl Rove for years. Hes a man who is only after Karl Rove, and hes part of the problem with the Republican Party.
Rove, he said, did such a bad job with Bush in that final period of time that no Republican could have possibly beaten Obama or any other Democrat.

Yes, yes he is. Thanks for saying that out aloud, Don.
I don’t really know what Trump’s game is or who he’s really working for but I’m no fan of Rove’s either.
Anything to piss off ROVE, who was part of the Wurlitzer effort (repeating the same thing as liberal POLITICO) to get his enemy Herman Cain out of the race.
The problem with Trump is although he occasionally lands a very good right hook, as you say, you are never sure when he is going to start swinging a LEFT hook.
Trumps game is himself, he doesn't "work" for anyone (and apparently not even his shareholders). There is no higher power with him, the upside of that, is that he is free to say whatever he wants, whenever he wants and get away with things.
The downside, is that Trump is no conservative either, he may not like Rove, but make no mistake, he isn't that different in that he is always always after his own agenda.......
Can’t disagree - but Rove has shown himself to be nothing but an anti-conservative sellout GOP establishment propaganda tool - what a mess
Trump is a fool; Rove was the ‘magnificient bastard’ time and time yet again.
Well just looking at Roves achievements since ‘04, they are pretty thin. Loser seems apt.
Rove is now looser, like a cannon.
where is that Capt’n Obvious gif
I love it
Sometimes I love the stuff that comes out of Trump’s mouth—he can see through all the garbage and get to the fact of the matter. He really understands psychology, also.
He is applying psychological warfare-—exactly how the Leftists fight. Good for him.
He never met a Con he didn't abhor and is a chartered member in good standing of the Washington Establishment Republican Class who are more concerned with the status quo than EVER working towards the election of a Con as those A-Holes know they can not "control" such a person and said person is apt to upset their little "apple cart."
They are all part and parcel of the "Can't we jist' all git' along" (Rats and Republi-Tards) who believe in "Compromise" and "Crossing the aisle" to work with the opposing party, no matter what the outcome or consequences.
Even though, a victory by Trump would probably result in the end of our electoral party system. After yet finishes off what Obama started, no one would ever trust any political party again.
Unless and until Donald Trump runs for election - he is doing the work that the media refuses to do - as a private citizen.
He is a celebrity attention addict - a self-made, rich Bill Clinton.
As the old nursery rhyme: When he is good he is very, very good and when he is bad - he is horrid.
Never been much of a fan of The Donald, but this time he earns five stars from me. It’s the “basically” adverb that really gets me—it’s so, well, so “Donaldian.” I can just hear him saying, “Rove is, well, basically, a loser.”
Couldn’ta happened to a more deserving victim.
I had my eyes opened re: Rove the night he was on Hannity’s show and threw a hissy fit when Christine O’Donnell beat out incumbent Mike Castle in the 2010 Delaware election...Rove was so ugly, it left Hannity speechless...and that’s an accomplishment!...just wish I could get a refund on Rove’s “Courage and Consequence”...waste of money to be sure.
Rove's an overated @$$!
In 2000, he inched out a victory in Florida to have Bush barely beat the corrupt clown of a VP of an impeached president.
In 2004 the SwiftVets faught & won the battle over a fraud of war hero who was actually and demonstratably either a useful idiot or agent of America's enemies since Vietnam. And FR exposed his in the tank media in the Rather-National-Guard-Memo capper. Rove/Bush did NOTHING in both cases.
As for the Bush administration's governance from 2001-2007: Cheney was central to everything good (War on Terror & foreign policies). Rove was central to everything rotten (domestic policies as Immigration reform & Harriet Miers SCOTUS nomination).
To a conservative, Rove is even less reliable than Trump. But RINOs always loved him.
ROFL. “Highly overrated and basically a loser”!
Yes, indeed and a smug hater of the TEA Party and our conservatives.
That may explain his past cooperation with the liberals. For quite some time, Libs have been in a position to make his business efforts VERY difficult. Now that the Pubbies are running the House, he feels he can speak out in a "conservative" way without any backlash.
Karl Rove is toxic; Rove is a limp wristed panty waist who’s lost all credibility with the GOP base.
This is like the pot calling the kettle black. Trump is all about Trump. At least I’ve never heard Rove threaten to run for president if the Republican nominee doesn’t suit him, thus throwing the election to Obama.
So it’s ok with you if Trump (who is an egomaniac) runs for president as a third party and throws the election to Obama, just as long as Rove gets embarrassed in the process. I can’t believe what I’m reading
You’re both losers.
The ball is in their court. Obama's reelection depends on whether we have a clear alternative to Obama who will reverse Obamanism, not Socialist Lite with an (R) after its name. Yes, in answer to your question. Thank you for asking. It is a question asked every four years. It is never asked nor does it need to be asked, when we have a Conservative standard bearer.
No doubt that if there is one person in America who is capable of identifying that particular character trait, it's comb-over boy.
Tokyo Rove is a moron. He’s one of the reasons I stopped watching the FOX Neocon Channel. (FNC)
Well, who gave Trump this kind of knowledge that ANY true lover of this country wants Obama to win if we can't have it our way.
This is STUPID!!!
Trump is a nutcase.
Well, at least you can see that—that’ more than the rest of these lemmings here on FR. They’re more than willing to see Trump reassure the reelection of Obama, so long as they can stick their finger in Rove’s eye. This is childish beyond belief.
