If there was one big loser on November 6th - other than Mitt Romney - it was Karl Rove. Despite trying to portray himself as little more than an observer, “the architect” had his hands all over the election. Via his two political organizations, Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies and American Crossroads, Rove squandered hundreds of millions of dollars and came away with absolutely nothing to show for it. First, he spent months bragging that he’d managed to raise $300 million to spend in the upcoming contest
Then, he(Rove spent millions more purchasing spots that were designed to help a whole host of candidates for the Senate and the House. Ten out of 12 would-be Senators and 4 out of 9 hopeful representatives lost their races.
When it was all over, Rove had burned through (by some accounts) close to $400 million dollars. Yet, in nearly every Rove-involved race, the GOP got hammered. This, of course, led to his on-air Fox News meltdown and a temporary ejection from his “contributor” gig.
These are the numbers that Rove, the Republican Establishment, and the pom-pom waivers hope you never see. They can site selected Tea Party backed candidates, but in comparison their track record is abysmal in comparison.
Rove is a progressive looking to usher Jeb in...he is part of the elite eunuch class...Can him
Give us Rand Paul...and a bare knuckles fight...and destroy the thieving electonic voting machines...If our government thought to keep the vote store in Iraq, there needed be THE PURPLE FINGER...then give us THE PURPLE FINGER...NO ELECTRONICS...and VOTING DAY...ONE DAY...that´s it one day
Get to work locally...we´re already on life support..locally, a ground game..no Project Orca...door to door old fashioned ground...if we still exist...
Karl Rove, like other Establishment Republicans is stabbing TEA Party people in the back. I think we´ve just about had enough of these traitors. Obama couldn´t ask for a better friend than Karl Rove. Could Rove be acting like some kind of secret agent for the ´RATS? The GOP seems to be filled with traitors these days. What better way to demoralize Conservatives?
Once, I thought Karl was smart. But only until W was out of office. Then every stupidity attributable to him was revealed.
He´s not smart. He´s not wise. He´s coyote-like, like a power hungry dem. Politically he´s a donkey. Just as dems think not of consequences, nor does he.
If these political people could just tell me where the book is that defines their kind of smart, I might begin to understand. There is nothing in any of my previous research about mental capacity, and performance, that comes close to defining what these piously political pontificators claim for themselves.
I hold Karl Rove primarily responsible for G. W. Bush´s lack of response as the Democraps and LSM destroyed his Presidency via a ´Death by a Thousand Knife Cuts´.
I believe if GW had stood up on his hind feet during his second term and fought like the President of the United States of America and challenged the crap thrown at him by Pelosi/Reid and the LSM instead of going about his normal business, enough ´normal´ Americans would not have voted for the Kenyan.
It is my opinion that Karl Rove is intimately associated with bringing the curse that is Barak Hussein Obama upon our country and we should never forget that!
Like the rest of him, Barack Obama’s mass circulated photos from photo-ops like yesterday’s Mandela Memorial, are phony. The photo of Obama tweeted by the White House on Dec. 5 in response to Nelson Mandela’s death was taken six months earlier at the Robben Island prison where Mandela spent 27 years of his life. You can call ‘Obama Behind Bars in Robben Island Prison’ Obama’s prepper picture. While America is being held in an ObamaCare stranglehold, blood pressure shot up when a photo of Obama shaking Cuban President Raul Castro’s hand went viral on the Net yesterday. As that photo was still burning
President Barack Obama may have already known the real date of Nelson Mandela’s death and studiously planned funeral when he made his June 2013 African trip—and was even able to take the photo he would later Tweet on the day of Mandela’s officially announced death while he was still in South Africa. Claiming to defer to Mandela family members on visiting the ailing Mandela during his June 28-30 whistle-stop trip through Johannesburg, Obama instead met with South African President Jacob Zuma. Zuma was one of the key figures who kept the news that doctors had been keeping Mandela alive in a vegetative
Psychological projection was described by Sigmund Freud as an immature “defense mechanism in which a person unconsciously rejects his or her own unacceptable attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world.” (Sigmund Freud, Case Histories II, p. 132) So it is that Democracy for America, the progressive organizational arm of the Democrat Party, agitating their voting constituents against the rest of the country, has sent out a memo, accusing Republicans of waging a War on Christmas – “Well, this year there is a real ‘War on Christmas;’ and it’s not being waged by the ACLU or the
President Barack Obama never even once visited the iconic Nelson Mandela while he was still alive, but count on him hogging all the limelight he can at the freedom hero’s funeral. It is a matter of public record that Obama ignored Mr. Mandela during all four years of his first term as president. Michelle Obama briefly visited Mandela during her 2011 South African trip before going on safari with her two daughters. During Obama’s June 2013 South African trip, Obama “deferred” to the family of an ailing Mandela by not visiting Mandela at his sick bed. Does anyone notice how Obama excels at latching
Ugh! The falling-fast-in-popularity-polls Barack Hussein Obama is diving for cover under the cassock of Pope Francis, and it’s going to require a take-no-prisoners Catholic League president like Bill Donohue to drag him back out. Obama’s M.O. for hiding under Francis skirts? ‘The Artful Dodger of the White House’ counts on people thinking that If the pope can be a Marxist, then the Marxist Fundamental Transformation of America can’t be all bad. The big difference here is that no one, not the mainstream media or the talking heads jumped on the man they call Obama when he ran for the presidency back in
The House Republican leadership with its Dec. 3 vote to extend the ban on “undetectable” guns proved again it excels at political cowardice and betrayal of conservatives. Do not bother looking for the roll call of the yeas and nays on the vote, the GOP leaders, working with Democrats, suspended the rules and passed the measure with a voice vote—with maybe 15 actual congressmen on the House floor. In another profile in cowardice, Republicans put up Rep. J. Howard Coble (R.-N.C) to sponsor the bill, H.R. 3626. The 82-year-old congressman announced his retirement a month ago, so let’s just say he took
In a world where the New York Times can posit that the ‘Knockout Game’ Trend has no import—and gets away with it—no one can know the future, but with the way things are going it is only commonsense to worry your way into trying to do something about it. People old enough to remember 70 years of Communism in the Soviet Union and its satellites before communism made its hurried move for a safe North America landing, stand their ground against the misery of Marxism planned for America by President Barack Obama. But young people, who now over populate the ‘Me
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
