Donations to Karl Rove's Groups Drop 98% after Targeting Tea Party
Breitbart. ^ | 1 Feb 2014, 11:59 AM PDT | Tony Lee

Posted on 02/01/2014 1:12:28 PM PST by RedMDer

After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove's three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013.

....

Since then, as Breitbart News reported, "Rove’s organization has been so tarnished among the conservative base that candidates fear donors will not contribute to any group associated with him." Aware of this, Rove's Crossroads network has reloaded with groups that share donors but are technically not affiliated on paper with them.

See my tag line why Rove would do such a thing.

It’s been a 100+ year con that people haven’t realized until now.

There needs to be a master list of those organizations that are affiliated with Rove and his RINO scoundrels.

For all intents and purposes they are no different than the Soros created fake Catholic organizations, that attack Catholicism, yet try to fool Catholics into sending them money to do so.

This is great. Not only are the GOPe’s knees cut out from under them, now the RATS have to wonder and fear ‘what rough beast from Bethlem’ is coming their way? They are incapable of understanding TEA to begin with, which is good, they won’t see the shot David fired at their Goliath.

[rubbing hands] EXCELLENT.

Well, I guess that illustrates the break-out of the Republican voters/donors.

From now on I will only donate to candidates of my choosing, and to organizations that support conservatives only. The RNC with their candidates who are playing the race card against their own constituents can consider my hang ups a stiff middle finger in their face.

I want to celebrate, but this isn’t an apples-to-apples comparison: $325 million in “the last election cycle;” $6 million last year. I would like to compare 2013 to 2009.

I read somewhere that unions are funding GOPe groups now. If true, then the tea part is causing a massive drain on democrats, as they now have to fund democrats and GOPe candidates.

Amazingly, having proved in the prior election cycle that there was indeed this anti establishment grass roots sentiment all across the nation, getting candidates nominated if not elected, this genius Rove decided rather than try and meet us he would oppose us. This somehow doesn’t strike me as one of the more intelligent people i know or know of.

Rove is decent enough with targeting numbers and demographics, but he’s really showing himself to be an idiot here.

You NEVER take on a true grassroots mass movement. You need to be able to kill it dead, which is very very hard and that only results in a pyrric victory.

You have to do what the Dems did with their grassroots following the Clinton Admin: listen to them, show them respect, involve them and work together to plot a common path forward ...

What is wrong with the other 2%. Are they brain dead?

Maybe they are liberal Democrats trying to help Rove in his war against the tea party.

"donations ... decreased by 98% last year"

This is good, but it is mostly because because 2013 was not an election year and 2012 was a major election year.

They keep putting him on because he is the so called “Architect” for the republican party. You can ask Rove or Hannity and they will agree that he is brilliant. Ask almost anyone here on FR and you will get the true answer. He is no conservative.
