While Barack Obama is busy shredding the Constitution, Washington, D.C. insider Karl Rove is busy trying to destroy what is left of the Republican Party by launching a multi-million dollar Super PAC to usurp representative democracy, disenfranchise American voters, and concentrate even more power in Washington DC. Rove and the professional “consultant class” think that only Washington D.C. insiders like them – not the American people – should get to decide who runs for public office. That’s why he is launching the “Conservative Victory Project” – a Super PAC whose mandate is

FTA: "What happened the last time Washington D.C. insiders hand-picked our candidate? We got Mitt Romney"
Nobody hand-picked Romney. After endless televised debates with with Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Ron Huntsman, Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Gary Johnson, Tim Pawlenty, and a handful of others, followed by some hard fought state republican primaries, for anyone to claim Romney was "hand picked" is just rediculous. Romney may not have been your preferred candidate, but no one picked him for us.
I´m no fan of Rove, but this approach is not helpful.
Rove had a hand in spreading rumors about the other candidates and not offering any support to the candidacy of anyone OTHER than Romney. NIght after night on Fox. The same old tired reasons from him and Ann Coulter why Romney was the ONLY one that had the credibility to stop Obama. Yeah, right....Romneycare cred. No going- on- the- offense cred regarding Benghazi. I´ll never forget the look on his face in the Candy Crowley debate....."really Mr. President?" Mitt said with the look of disbelief on his face and then the entire subject was DROPPED!!!!! This is in part why Hillary got to escape criticism at her hearing. If there had been a cogent drum beat of BENGHAZIGATe, these creeps would not have gotten away with murder. Karl Rove was too busy calculating numbers on his "white board" on how much of a landslide Romney would win by. Jackwagon. No use for him whatsoever.
Thank you, #3. You´re right. #5, do you have a source for your "rumor" accusation? And, I´m not sure why Romney would have contributed to his opponents. I´m not sure that´s ever happened in the history of political campaigns.
The woman who wrote this is flinging a lot of furious spittle, but very little substantive information.
Most of the Fox talking heads...with the possible exception of Hannity and even he was cautious...SEEMED to be under orders to say something positive about Romney whenever his name came up. These same people routinely discredited the most conservative candidate of the Primaries (Perry). I once spent an entire week counting seconds when Romney was discussed and comparing it to the "mention time" of the other Primary candidates. Unless someone else was actually being interviewed, Romney got far and away the most airtime on Fox.
Fox lost a lot of cred (as well as Coulter) for their unflagging support of a man who was, at best, a temporary conservative.
Yes, he was a better candidate than Obama. That´s why I voted for him. But he wasn´t good enough for many conservatives. When is Rove going to learn that his time in the sun is O-V-E-R????
The GOP candidate of choice couldn´t even beat a marxist of questionable heritage with a horrible track record. Why do we even listen to these clowns? Rove and his ilk are failures, interested only in feathering their country club nests. The words "conservative" and "rove" should never be uttered in the same sentence. Karl may have gotten bush elected, but he also got obama elected-twice.
Karl Rove & the Establishment (sounds like a boy band) repeatedly told us that Romney was the only one that could win. Wrongo, MaryLou! We tried it their way in 2008 and 2012. It is time we tried a REAL conservative! One that will fight fire with fire and not hold anything back.
Doesn´t it seem suspicious that any time a primary candidate other than Romney started getting attention, a massive amount of dirt was dumped about him (or her) within hours? I dont need to see the feces to know what the smell is.
Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."
Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.
Now we can say it without a doubt: Seattle has the loudest fans in the world. During the Seahawks-49ers game Sunday, the 12th Man broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd roar, the record attempt’s organizer said. We have yet to officially confirm the report from former Seahawks player Joe Tafoya, but he tweeted from the field that the record had been broken. Seahawks fans hit 131.9 decibels, according to The Seattle Times, after the Seahawks and 49ers returned to the field from a weather delay. The previous record was 131.76 decibels, set during a 2011 soccer match at
It was an overcast, albeit relatively mild August day by Washington D.C. standards, fifty years ago today, as I joined the thousands walking along Constitution Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial. Many of those in the crowd who had traveled vast distances by busses and cars from all over the nation, but in particular the deep South, had a look of apprehension bordering on fear, not knowing what to expect from the police and those vehemently opposed to unfettered civil rights. Despite the trepidation and regardless of skin color, nationality or faith all were determined to compel the nation to listen
Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”
Back in September of 2008, Sarah Palin spoke at a Colorado Springs rally. During her address, she lamented the all-encompassing power of government sponsored mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. (Snip) She was, of course, pilloried for this. Virtually every mainstream media outlet pounced, accused her of ignorance, and reminded the American people that these were not taxpayer funded entities. Taxpayers simply weren’t a factor.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
