Posted on 02/08/2013 7:38:57 AM PST by bigbob
fter smearing movement conservative icon Brent Bozell as a "hater" who has a "sordid history of hating Karl Rove," Jonathan Collegio of American Crossroads mocked a group of prominent conservatives who wrote a letter to Crossroads GPS President Steven Law demanding Collegio be fired.
Ive been trying to get my friends to sign it, because itll make for a funnier story once I get it framed, Collegio said, in response to the letter to the Washington Examiner. It would be flattering, if it werent so absurd.
In an interview with Breitbart News editor Larry O'Connor on WMAL's "Mornings on the Mall" radio show in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, Collegio said, "Bozell is a hater and he also has a long sordid history hating Karl Rove. He has weird personal axes to grind." Collegio was on the show to talk about the group's new super PAC, which many believe has declared war on the Tea Party.
He subsequently apologized for his remarks, but that apology was not enough for some of the conservative movement's most prominent leaders. Collegio also seemed to be taking a swipe at Mark Levin when he criticized conservatives who supported failed Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell in 2010. Collegio said those were the types of candidates his new organization is trying to prevent from winning the GOP nomination.
On behalf of the conservative movement, we are demanding you terminate Mr. Collegio," they wrote. An apology is not acceptable."

Why would this smart a** be hired by anyone who wanted to win future elections? Rove must be getting big bucks from Obama to sink the GOP.
As opposed to, what? Mike Castle and his liberal voting record?
We were told election cycle after election cycle to support the GOP primary winner, even it if was the RINO. But when the conservative beat the RINO in Delaware and other states, the knives came out. And the Tea Party candidates did better in 2012 than the GOP-E choices.
These idiots are displaying the liberal hallmark of believing the solution to failure is to do more of what is failing in hopes that it eventually works. Their belief system is more in-line with Democrats than conservatives. And the mask that they used to pretend otherwise has been stripped off.
O'Donnnell had flaws. But those could have been overcome if the GOP-E had tried to help her instead of joining the Dems and the MSM in beating her up.
I think the “Tokyo Rove” moniker is beginning to stick. I’ve seen it in several places recently.
Newsflash, Jonathan Collegio found in alleyway with a size 10 steeltoe boot lodged firmly in his person making sitting difficult.
Afterwards, Collegio walked stiffly in a tip toe gait while ranting that he showed them all.
He entered his vehicle and sat on a hiney donut before gingerly driving off.
These GOP elitists are living in their own little appeasing world apparently. They believe illegals and citizen hispanics will vote for GOP if we give illegals amnesty. Didn’t happen in 1986 aftermath and never will.
The word has gone out around the world. Come to America; it is ripe for the raping. Entitlements? No worries. We’ll (current illegals and other immigrants and sympathizers) walk you through all the motions of getting on the dole. We’ll get you a driver’s license (and register to vote, to boot), we’ll get you WICs, EITC (with a fake SS number), TANF, SNAP, Section 8 housing, and all the rest.
Hey! We’ll also show you the list of all those Christian Free Pantries you can hit up for groceries when your lottos don’t pay off and you’ve ATM’d the hell out of your EBT card....We’ll teach you EVERYTHING! In return? You only have to vote Democrat.
My heart isn’t in ‘Republican-anything” any more. I think I’m just gonna vote against them wherever I see a RINO that needs a lesson.....in the end, it’s the same outcome.
Pay attention people.
Be civil and respectful, but Rove needs to go now.
He has done far to much damage already.
bu..bu...but....what about the “fact” that the GOP-E went to all the right schools, have all the right connections, and are oh-so-much smarter than the rest of us?
The American Spectator absolutely nailed it a couple of years ago and it’s worth passing along the link again. “America’s Ruling Class” explains Rove etc and a lot more:
Always with the Christine O’Donnell or Todd Akin bashing. Were they perfect candidates? No, but they won their primaries, deserved to be supported by Republicans of all stripes (conservative OR moderate), and were clearly much better than the Democrats who won. That’s my beef with moderate Republicans!
Romney, for example, was the squishiest of squishy Republicans, but a whole lot of conservatives still showed up at the polls to vote for a man they shared very little with. Why? Because it was better to support the party’s nominee than turn the election over to an avowed Marxist.
Now why in the world can’t those squishy moderates return the favor when one of our guys or gals win? Fight like crazy for your RINOs, but if you lose, show us the same courtesy that you ask from us! Support the nominee. Even if you hate them, suck it up until AFTER the election.
Would O’Donnell or Akin really have been worse than what was elected? Since the RINOs did everything in their power to destroy the O’Donnell and Akin campaigns after they were OUR nominees, I guess they thought so, and that says a bunch about the moderates.
Kapo Karl just wants the perks.
“Now why in the world cant those squishy moderates return the favor when one of our guys or gals win?”
Because the squishes HATE conservatives and agree with the liberals.
The squishes would rather see a liberal in office than a hated conservative.
I agree. I’ve had it with this fat RINO pig.
Rove and his lackeys think they are untouchable.
I think O’Donnell was a very strong candidate, and never agreed one single bit with the bashing.
She should run again. Maybe move some place more conservative first though. :D
dirtboy: “We were told election cycle after election cycle to support the GOP primary winner, even it if was the RINO.”
That’s actually very reasonable advice for people on the same team, but the moderates are in it for something else. I don’t know what, but it can’t be about winning elections. O’Donnell, for example, may have been destined for failure no matter what, but the GOPe piled on when it should have been helping her. I guess we don’t call them squishes for nothing, eh?
Things like this new Rove PAC makes me want to defeat the moderates almost as bad as I want to beat the Democrats, but you know what? I still vote for RINOs when they win nominations, because it’s better than letting the Democrats win. Well, maybe...
Moderate Republicans have repeatedly proven themselves to be both untrustworthy and dishonorable. Even when they’re beaten fairly, they try to undermine the result. They’re much like the left in that regard.
Karl has been licking on that D.C. creamsicle all his adult life. He's all in.
Darksheare: “The squishes would rather see a liberal in office than a hated conservative.”
I don’t think there can be any other conclusion. The squishes aren’t even good losers. Castle, Lugar, and all the rest acted like a bunch of sore losers. Honorable statesmen? Don’t make me laugh! I can think of far more appropriate terms for them, but the admin would delete my post.
That said, I would have voted for any of these “honorable statesmen” (LOL!) over the opposition, but I’ve gotta be honest. That’s getting much, much harder to do when they refuse to return the favor. (and, yeah. I’m still happy Castle went down in flames even if it lost us the seat!)
These two maybe weren't as intelligent or eloquent as a Ted Cruz, but I bet their voting records would have been almost identical to Cruz, and I would sure settle for that in most Senate races.
Maybe picking a fight is the only way to get conservatives to rise up and fight back?
During recent Rovian history, the eGOP almost won when Sarah Palin added some conservative enthusiasm to McLame's eGOP stink, then won big in 2010 with the TEA party rising up and then lost big when the TEA party stayed home.
Quite honestly, the eGOP has been getting its butt kicked consistently when it relies upon its progressive follower, appeasement/compromise ideology.
