  • Clashes between Karl Rove and conservatives becoming more frequent

    The Daily Caller ^ | 10/27/2011 | Alex Pappas
    Democrats have long enjoyed bashing Karl Rove, former White House adviser and architect of the campaigns that put President George W. Bush in office. But clashing with the longtime Republican operative and Fox News contributor is now catching on for another group: conservatives, especially those affiliated with the tea party movement. Among the most high profile of these recent attackers are former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and, now, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.
  • Like Obama, Karl Rove Seems Willing to Subvert the Constitution to Win in 2012

    The Post & Email ^ | October 26, 2011 | Lawrence Sellin
    First of all, no one should take Karl Rove too seriously. He acts purely out of self-interest. Rove cares little about the Constitution, the rule of law or the country. He is only interested in winning elections because each election he wins increases his power, prestige and the size of his financial portfolio. Rove is part of the Republican establishment, who long ago decided that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney will be their Presidential candidate in 2012 and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) will be chosen for the Vice Presidency. Romney has the mega-money backers and a national campaign organization, key...

    TOKYO ROVE” STRIKES AGAIN© 2011 by Anthony James Sour Grapes Karl Just Can’t Help Himself. As former president Ronald Reagan would say, “There you go again, Karl.” On Wednesday evening on Greta Van Susteren’s top-rated FOX TV news and talk show, “On The Record,” former Bush political adviser and the man euphemistically referred to as “The Architect” for his alleged contributions to George W. Bush’s winning campaign strategies in 2000 and 2004, Karl Rove just inexplicably and repeatedly soiled himself in front of the American public again and again. Greta had asked him why he felt it was that the...

    Karl Rove responds to controversy over his speculation if Fmr. Gov. Sarah Palin will indeed enter the GOP field. Rove said chances are she will jump in, but was not definitive in his observation. "I mystified," Rove said about his speculation. "Look, she is all upset about this saying how I am trying to sabatouge her in some way. How do I speculate on her future." "Look, if she doesn't want to be speculated about a potential presidential candidate there is an easy way to end the speculation. Simply say 'I'm not running.' Instead, every time she pops up in...

    Karl Rove’s Money Machine Goes Live With $20 Million Anti-Obama Campaign (VIDEO) Evan McMorris-Santoro June 24, 2011 The real starting gun of the 2012 presidential race may be sounding Monday, and it's coming in the form of massive attack ad campaign aimed squarely at President Obama's economic record. Crossroads GPS, anonymous-money collecting arm of the Citzens United-inspired political machine founded by Karl Rove and other Republican heavyweights, is going live with a $20 million television ad campaign targeting the president 497 days before voters head to the polls in November 2012. The ads will start appearing on Monday, and will...

    Former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell says the Federal Elections Commission has dropped a campaign finance complaint filed against last year her by the state’s Republican Party. Writing on Twitter early Thursday afternoon, the tea party-backed Republican announced “Breaking News! FEC dismissed the DE GOP Ex-Chair’s complaint against me.” O’Donnell’s Christine PAC did not immediately respond to POLITICO’s request for comment. The complaint against O’Donnell alleged that she and the Tea Party Express had violated campaign finance rules barring coordination between PACs and candidates.

    Republican strategist Karl Rove says President Barack Obama is taking delight in the fact that Donald Trump is pressing so hard for him to produce his birth certificate, “because that’s exactly what Obama wants conservatives to do.” Speaking to Sean Hannity Thursday on his radio show, Rove also questioned Trump’s conservative credentials. Hannity started the interview by asking Rove why he was going after Trump. “Well, I think Trump’s got a thin skin — I don’t think I’m going after Trump,” Rove said. “A guy who says that he doesn’t know what Ronald Reagan is hiding behind his smile, and...

    Donald Trump, fresh from a Gallup poll showing him tied with former Gov. Mike Huckabee for the lead in the Republican race for the White House, is firing back at GOP strategist Karl Rove for calling Trump a "joke candidate." Trump, who says that Rove has proven himself to be out of touch with Americans, released the following statement to Newsmax: "Karl Rove is a loser. He is doing the Republican Party a great disservice by trying to stop the discussion about the president not being able to present his birth certificate to the American people – or to assure...

    Karl Rove appears to be in panic mode. The once sought after ‘Bush’s Brain’ or “republican strategist” is now revealing what many republicans  and conservatives don’t know–that Rove was one of the key architects behind the ‘election’ of Obama in 2008, and is secretly behind an Obama re-election in 2012.Yes, you read that right. And read the lines and between them here. Who did Karl Rove fear as a republican strategist in 2007 and 2008?  Hillary Clinton.  He knew that HRC would beat any republican candidate after eight years of Bush/Cheney/Rove. He had to knock her out so collaborated with...

    Donald Trump fired back at Karl Rove on Tuesday for labeling his possible White House bid a “joke,” saying the one-time senior adviser to President George W. Bush “should be ashamed of himself” for the role he played in pushing an agenda that turned voters against Republicans and paved the way for the Obama presidency. Mr. Trump, the billionaire real estate developer and reality-TV-show star still weighing a 2012 race, said in an interview that the Republican brand was so tarnished after the Bush-Rove years that even “Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have beaten” President Obama in the 2008 presidential race. “Honestly,...

    Only 59 of the 240+ House Republicans voted against this deal. It seems we have a long way to go. Boehner, whose staff will hang up on you if you call and ask him to take a stand against Obamacare, did get almost 80 democrats to vote for it though. What does that tell you?

    Democrats were apparently under-represented in Delaware’s US Senate race on November 2, 2010, according to CNN exit polls taken on election night. Voter registration for Delaware’s 2010 election totaled Democrats: 47 %. Republicans: 29.4%. “Other” & Independents: 23.5% (Voter registration closed on October 9, 2010. Registration totals are as of October 21, 2010.) http://elections.delaware.gov/services/candidate/regtotals.shtml However, actual voter turn out according to CNN’s exit poll was: Democrats: 44%. Republicans: 30%. “Other” & Independents: 27% http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2010/results/polls/#val=DES01p1 Thus Democrats were under-represented among the actual voters who turned out in the November 2 election. Only 44% of actual voters were Democrats although 47% of...

    The State Column ^ | December 8, 2010
    Former presidential adviser Karl Rove said Tuesday that the race for the Republican Party presidential nomination is wide open. “There is no front-runner in Iowa; there’s no front-runner in America,” Rove said on Fox News. “We should welcome that.” Since November, Mr. Rove has made similar comments during his speaking tours. He has openly criticized a number of Republican nominees, including Republican Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell. Ms. O’Donnell eventually lost to Democratic U.S. Senator Chris Coons. He noted that recent polls show four candidates who are consistently ahead. Among those included likely include former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin,...

    GOP strategist Karl Rove doesn't think Sarah Palin's reality show will earn her any points for a presidential run, but said Friday that putting three of her 16 book tour stops in Iowa is "a smart thing to do." Palin is hitting the road, including in the early presidential state, to promote her new book "America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag." "It gives her an excuse to be there as something other than a candidate, which is really important," Rove said on Fox News. "That's a pretty smart move if you're thinking about running for president," he...

    You know, many mediocre politicians are using the tea party as a vehicle to get elected.. It's weird. Many politicians claim they are conservative but don't have a track record we can check. Other politicians who are truly conservative, but unfortunately have this long track record, are brutally attacked for any little mistake they made in the past. This is ridiculous. Maybe the best way to get true conservatives elected is to put substance over rhetoric.

    There is a singular event that shoved the Republican Senate car over the cliff. That event was the primary victory of Christine O'Donnell. This morning she used a phrase that is right on the money. That description is "Republican Cannibalism." I personally hold Karl Rove to blame, followed closely by Senator John Cornyn. Rove is an establishment Progressive Republican of the first order. Following O'Donnell's message of values victory in Delaware, Rove started slinging mud in her direction because he realized she was a woman that couldn't be bought & sold on a D.C. street corner. It was Rove who...

    Karl Rove, Republican political strategist and the general behind George Bush's presidential victories, has been taking pot shots at some conservative favorites. His latest target, former Alaska governor and Tea Party darling, Sara Palin. Palin, Mr. Rove told Britain's The Daily Telegraph, lacked the "gravitas" to be president in 2012. He dissed her new Alaska reality series as a bad political move. “With all due candour, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of 'that helps me see you in the Oval Office’,” Rove told the...
