Skip to comments.Karl Rove has declared war* on the Tea Party Movement. Our response? BRING IT!

Establishment Republicans like Karl Rove has diluted what is supposed to be the conservative principles and message of the Republican Party. In a misguided attempt to 'appeal to moderates', Rove and his ilk have alienated conservatives within the Republican Party and sent the Democrats a clear message. They have no spine.
Rove has some nerve attacking a movement that infused the right with such enthusiasm that it gave the Republican Party its biggest gains in 2010. If he wants to point the finger of blame at anyone, he needs only look in the mirror for it was Rove that was the primary driver in Bush's becoming the second biggest spender of all time, right behind Barack Obama. This caused the Republican Party to lose all credibility for fiscal conservatism in 2006, paving the way for Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and eschewing in Barack Obama and the freedom sucking ObamaCare.
This is war, my fellow Patriots. It is shameful that we are not only at war with the Progressive Democrat Party whose objective is to 'fundamentally transform America' and wipe away the death, sweat, and tears that were paid by those that came before us so that we might have freedom. But now, RINO Rove has made it plainly evident that he lacks commitment to the principles of a constitutionally limited government, personal responsibility, fiscal sanity, and freedom by declaring war on a group of every day Americans who only want to preserve the America that our founders left for us for the generations to come. Help us fight Karl Rove in showing him that the Tea Party Movement is not going anywhere HERE.
Does Rove believe that Americans should be enslaved to a government that views their hard earned money as belonging to government first? Does Rove believe that government should have the power to decide which guns we should be allowed to own and have the power to limit our Second Amendment rights? Does Rove believe that Americans should be silenced and shamed from fighting for the freedoms that are guaranteed and promised to us within the Constitution? That is precisely the message that he is sending by declaring war on the good people within the Tea Party Movement.
Ladies and gentlemen, we must not let this stand! We must band together to send a message to Karl Rove that America is worth fighting for; the Constitution is worth standing for; our freedoms are worth every single stance, word, and action that we take to maintain. Unlike Karl Rove, we are not funded by millionaires and billionaires. Our funding comes in the average amount of $43 from every day moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, and singles who have a common bond....a belief in the United States of America and a desire to fight for her. Please help us fight establishment Republicans like Karl Rove who see you as a threat.
Someone needs to give Karl Rove an atomic wedgie and then stuffed into a locker!
I am sick of seeing/hearing this rove guy. Just got an email from Rand Paul looking for donations to RandPac. Anyone know anything about this group? He and SarahPac may be my first political donations.
McConnell, Cornyn, Alexander, Collins, Cochrane, Enzi, and Graham need to be primaried. And strong conservatives need to be chosen for the open seats in WV, GA and IA and strong conservatives against democrats Hagen, Begich, Landrieu, Johnson, Pryor, Franken, Warner, Shaheen and any other democrat.
No more Allens, Rehbergs, Thompsons, Lingles, Browns, Macks, or Wilsons. More establishment picks lost last time than conservative picks!
With friends like Rove, who needs enemies?
Perhaps Rove is still mad at Romney for not winning? And mitt didn’t tell him yet that he is not a conservative nor part of any the tea party but the ABO certainly worked on those suckers - mission accomplished.
With friends like Rove, who needs enemies?
My question for rovian moderates is this.
Why do you continue to try moderating the already comatose GOP while the democrats goose step into full on fascism completely unchecked?
Exactly what side are you on?
This guy is solid and a patriot. Please check him out and donate.
It was fun watching him wee wee up the libs, but his 15 minutes are up now and he should just move along to MSNBC with his buds.
I think it's less that he is trying to appeal to moderates than that he is himself a moderate, and is trying to mold the party to his tastes. It's not like he's a conservative acting pragmatically; he's a lib at heart.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
How many Millions did your PAC waste in 2012?
Why would anyone believe a word you have to say.
Go Home Karl, your a sore Loser. Conservatives are tired of listening to your BS.
PS Take your friends with you.
Some estimates are the Rove made 60 to 100 million
dollars by fleecing donations that SHOULD have gone
to ads. He belongs in prison.
Howze this gonna set with BigBud Hannity??? Take out the trash.
Karl Rove is living proof that it is absolutely impossible to polish a turd, no matter how the Republican elite establishment tries.
I read on here that Hannity is STILL having him on his show and introducing him as “The Architect.”
See Rove on TV, change stations
SCF Scores All 3 GOP Wins in 2012
The Republican establishment got their preferred candidates in most of the 2012 races, yet they were all defeated. Notable examples include the candidates in Wisconsin, New Mexico, Maine, Michigan, Connecticut, North Dakota, Montana, and Hawaii.
Go away Karl.
About Senate Conservatives Fund
Electing true conservatives to the U.S. Senate
SCF is a grassroots organization dedicated to electing strong conservative leaders to the United States Senate. We do not support liberal Republicans and we’re not affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its campaign committees.
SCF seeks to bring bold conservative leadership to Washington by supporting candidates who have the courage to fight for the timeless conservative principles of limited government, strong national defense, and traditional family values.
Our goal is to enact policies that will restore America’s greatness. Therefore, we only support candidates who have the courage to:
Congress must be forced to cut spending. SCF candidates support a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget without raising taxes.
President Obama’s health care takeover is set to destroy American medicine and bankrupt our country. SCF candidates support the full repeal of this dangerous law.
The federal government has failed to enforce our nation’s immigration laws. SCF candidates support real border enforcement and oppose all forms of amnesty.
Defend the 2nd Amendment
The 2nd Amendment protects our freedom to keep and bear arms. SCF candidates oppose all efforts to eliminate or restrict this right.
Bailouts force taxpayers to reward failure and punish success. SCF candidates oppose bailouts and believe corporations should be forced to compete.
Congressional earmarks are a gateway drug to higher spending. SCF candidates support a permanent ban on earmarks to break Washington’s addiction to pork.
Americans should not be forced to fund activities they find morally objectionable. SCF candidates oppose taxpayer funding for abortion.
Adopt Term Limits
Our country is being destroyed by career politicians. SCF candidates support a constitutional amendment establishing congressional term limits.
Read more about our endorsement process.
SCF helps candidates by raising support from thousands of freedom-loving Americans across the country, and by running hard-hitting radio and television ads in key battleground states. In the 2010 election cycle, SCF helped elect five conservative standouts: Pat Toomey (PA), Marco Rubio (FL), Rand Paul (KY), Mike Lee (UT), and Ron Johnson (WI). In 2012, SCF helped elect three more principled conservatives: Ted Cruz (TX), Jeff Flake (AZ), and Deb Fischer (NE).
SCF members live in every state and come from all walks of life. They love America and don’t want to see liberal policies destroy it. SCF members know that change in Washington means changing the people we send there, and they know that building a conservative majority in the U.S. Senate is critical to saving our country.
LOL...I'm sure he experienced that at least once a week all through high school!
I just discovered Rand Paul will be the keynote speaker at the Lincoln Day dinner here in Palatine, IL. I am definitely going to see what he has to say. He has been on a tear lately.
Unfortunately, RINO Kirk will be hosting the event. Maybe I can get a minute with him and tell him to get back on track and stop playing nice with the Democrats.
Dumping FOX and their efforts to act as our blood pressure injector is step one, for me at least, in leaving the Establishment.
Losing election after election forever, while at least standing upright, is preferable to the frog water-warming going on at FOX every night.
Rove & Company have already given conservatives an open invitation to leave the Company, in the form of a clarion call, and are now engaging in action similar to open banishment.
How many times do we have to be shown that the Tea Party is the only banner of unity available to us that repels Karl Marx Rove and unifies us?
The Tea Party needs some teeth, and leaders who are not already bought by either celebrity incomes and political machines. Grassroots need to measure action and not BS and rhetoric, leading us absolutely nowhere since Obama skated in, in November, 2008.
These individual PACS are a ruse, for elevating individuals, raising their profiles, keeping their individual careers afloat, rather than doing a dang thing meaningful for the cause, or for the conservativecandidates.
Both sides do it. Conservatives do it. We’re being worked over, right now.
The architect is now the archaic.
I’ve been saying it - the GOP are become nothing but the Judenrat for the MarxoFascists.
Clearly the GOPe firewall against conservatives was in the Senate (And white house) this time around. Fortunately plent of tea party and conservative candidates did win or hold house and state seats.
Rove has declared war on a lot more than just the Tea Party. He just pissed off a lot of state/local establishment as well who see a turf war in the future thanks to DC consultants.
Rove, the little fat kid that got beat up in school.
GOP politics bump for later.....
One of my good friends who is now the Chair of a mid-size county GOP calls Rove “Super Genius” sarcastically in the Wile E Coyote sense.
Start practicing this phrase: President Hitlery Clinton, in office from 2017 to 2025.
The Republican/conservative alliance doesn’t need enemies like Obamugabe. We are slitting our own throats, to the delight of the left.
Karl Rove ain’t dog squeeze under my shoes.
Rand Paul voted YEA to allowing Lurch to impose his perverted views through the Department of State.
The ONLY Senators with the guts to vote against Lurch were Cruz, Cornyn, and Inhofe.
I agree with you about Rand, btw, but this illustrates my point that no one is going to be perfect....and the way we in the Conservative movement are ripping each other up, it may be DECADES before we ever get the reins.
Karl Rove, for instance, wants to be sure, as I understand it, that our candidates aren’t prone to foot-in-mouth disease. That should be ALL of our goal. But he is being ripped for that.
Makes me sad.
In the links that follow each essay, you will find other links that discuss various aspects of Rove's serious damage to American interests & Republican prospects. The flirtation of establishment types with Rove has been an unmitigated disaster!
"Karl Rove, for instance, wants to be sure, as I understand it, that our candidates arent prone to foot-in-mouth disease."
While I agree that candidates on our side often get into issues that they are not properly prepared to handle, correctly; Rove has come down against true Conservatives who were quite adequate; but who put principle ahead of Rove's very confused views of what is practical.
Please see my reply #39.
That’s about right
I’d be more inclined if they chopped the 2nd A. and just put in ‘Follow the Constitution as written and currently amended’
I stopped listening to Hannity since the election, with him spouting the ‘saving’ SS & Medicare. If he were a Conservative, or better a (L) [like me] :P, he’d be screaming to let it go under and kill kill it off....
Wait, I remember when he was touted here as "Rove You Magnificent B@stard."
Hopefully we can now move on and just lose the first three words in that meme, when we address him.
The Conservative movement is a work in progress. We have to keep plowing away at finding a Conservative candidate, who CAN win, and then win the election. Period. Don't know how long that will take...have to keep fighting for what we want. There will be lots of in-fighting...certain folks want to keep their piece of the power pie. Actions speak louder than words...look to what these politicians do, just as we must with obozo, and not with what they say. This is a hell of a time to be living in this country...my parents had a fight on their hands with WWII. And now it is my turn to win this war against the socialists/communists/marxists/revolutionaries/muslim sympathizers in this country.
I do hope you can buttonhole Mark Kirk and deliver the message. Today I did read that he voted again Hagel, and that is good news. But Kirk's praise for Dick Durban turns my stomach..Republicans are stupid...it's as if they are book smart and street stupid, as the saying goes. They know nothing about how to conduct themselves with the enemy.
I’m going to my first local Tea Party meeting next week. As far as I am concerned it is the best hope to take back our country without resorting to musketry.
Supporting Paul and Palin sounds like a good idea.
Paul is one of the very few in the GOP that is worthwhile; however, both he and Palin represent our segment of the population and the sycophantic media will try everthing to discredit them.
I'll rip the turd not for wanting Candidates from sticking their foot in there mouth but rather the fact that when one did, it was ROVE that wouldn't let it die. The little fat turd was on 24/7 tearing the candidates apart on LIBERAL shows. How the F@#$ did that help ANY candidate on the right? He wanted to show everyone how smart he was, instead he HELPED defeat Conservatives and wasted 100 Million dollars on Left Leaning Candidates that got beat by far left Commie Bastards. He was also behind GW's great government Expansion. I wish he would go play in the middle of a freeway.
Kommy Rove... GET LOST....
