How to beat Karl Rove at
his own game

Politico, by Steve Deace

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/6/2013 8:26:53 AM

Karl Rove was once known as the “architect” but now a more appropriate nickname might be “demolition man.” Give Rove credit for one thing. He knows how to coalesce the conservative movement. He was the master strategist credited with getting the movement on one page to propel George W. Bush to eight years in the White House. But conservative dissatisfaction with Bush’s big government policies grew, and then eventually boiled over in the Obama years to what we now know as the tea party movement.

Comments:
The best article on this issue I have read. It not only points out the problem, but to a solution as well.

Well done Mr.Deace!

Wow, and in the state run media! Deace, you speak my heart.

Yes, it was Bush´s big government policies that paved the way for Obama and dispirited freedom loving conservatives. Karl Rove was at "front and center" of those policies. May he indeed be hoisted on his own petard!

The GOP use to pick their candidates at the conventions. I believe this was deemed unfair because party bosses ruled and picked the candidate and the individual member´s vote didn´t count. Interesting that the solution is to go back to conventions to pick the candidate.

Sometime someone will get too big for their britches and in this case it was reported in the NYTs of all places. Backtracking on national cable show (from what I heard) will do nothing to change the first picture painted even tho NYTs changed the article and removed Rove´s name and just left Atty Law as the one responsible for the contents of the article.
Ooooooooops, Too late, Rove. Your true colors are boldly shown.

Rove went on Hannity to walk back the NYTimes article and claim common cause with the Tea Party. You be the judge:

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/02/05/Rove-I-do-not-want-fight-tea-party

Going back to a convention, smoke-filled-room system seems like a really dumb solution. That system is even more easily controlled by a small, powerful group.

Don´t accept anything from Politico without questioning motives. Also, join my battle to get Politco off of C-span if accepted as a balanced source. Infuriating and another reason I don´t watch them as I used to.

I to think W was one of our great POTUS but fault him for listening to karl raving about not confronting or responding to the lies and spinning by the demoncrats!
Who could stand without answering the charges for 8 yrs from a lunatic party whose anger is solely the genesis is the impeachment of willy and the 2000 election, called early by the lsm, which went throught the turmoil of the recount!
God bless the patriots that stormed the locked office in FL and forced the recount in the open!!

Predictably, the Bush diehards always man the barricades whenever a discouraging word is said about their boy; a colossal incompetent who ushered in Obama, just as his father did Clinton. Iraq is Exhibit A. After Kuwait, the USAF had imposed ´no fly zones´ radiating north from Mosul and south from Basra. We had absolute control of the skies and ´killed´ anything that moved, at will. We could easily have shifted those zones and isolated Baghdad as Saddam was defenseless and prostrate. Instead, George the Compassionate opted for a land war which Tommy Franks orchestrated brilliantly in a 100 day helo-tank blitz through the Euphrates/Tigris Valley. The toppling of Saddam´s statue was the decisive moment. So where was the plan to impose our will and pacify Iraq????? There was no plan and the rest is history. The fruits of our victory were squandered and 99.2% of our casualties were sustained after that day. Today Iraq remains a seething cauldron of religious hatred, ethnic violence and economic decay; mute testament to the failure of the Bush Presidency.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love that picture from the Bundy Ranch. You know the one that I’m talking about: I’m talking about all of them. I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power. Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform. Then one bright day, a fruit stand

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

The chairman of the Mississippi GOP, Joe Nosef, reacted angrily to Tea Party groups calling for his resignation this week, accusing one local activist of secretly working to elect Democrats and saying some “fanatical” Tea Party groups could jeopardize the GOP´s hold on a senate seat in one of the most Republican states in the nation, according to emails obtained by Breitbart News. In the emails, Joe Nosef, the chairman of the Mississippi Republican party, told Mississippi Tea Party president Janis Lane that “help[ing] Democrats win...appears to be your goal.” Nosef also emailed to a list of Republicans that the

Speaker John Boehner´s primary challenger is going there. In a provocative new video from GOP candidate J.D. Winteregg, an announcer asks if Boehner suffer from "electile dysfunction"? "Sometimes, when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head," the announcer says as clips flash on-screen of John Boehner laughing with President Obama, John Boehner on the golf course with Obama, and John Boehner smiling while giving Obama a glowing "thumbs up" at the State of the Union address. The ad - titled "When the Moment is Right" - is a spoof of Cialis commercials which air during 60 Minutes

Paul and Bush Duke It Out
on Immigration
American Spectator, by Natalie deMacedo    Original Article

Presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Jeb Bush got in a slight scuffle over immigration yesterday. Bush called illegal immigration “an act of love” committed by people wanting to support their families, adding that most of them are here illegally because they can’t get in legally. This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results.
