Nuclear war over Rove´s
claims to work for Reagan;
Gipper biographer says no

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/8/2013 3:24:18 PM

The war of words between conservatives and former Bush advisor Karl Rove has gone nuclear, this time over Rove´s claim that he worked for Ronald Reagan´s 1980 campaign and on a Reagan advisory board. The bottom line: While Rove told The O´Reilly Factor Thursday that he worked for the Gipper, Reagan´s acclaimed biographer Craig Shirley says there´s no evidence to back Rove up. Worse: In an email Shirley is sending to conservative leaders, he reveals that Rove backed former President Ford in 1976 and in 1980 worked for former Texas governor who didn´t back Reagan until after he was nominated.

Comments:
This is really starting to get ugly. I hate to see terrible fighting within the party. We have to unite to beat the Democrats.

Mark Levin was THERE. He never saw hide nor hair of what´s-his-name. Levin would at least have known somebody who would have known of Rove. Rove lies and this is hardly the first time. Rove looking more desperate every day, trying to rebuild some cred so he can attract some big $$$$ donors.

Rove does look desperate, and he deserves it.

Maybe Karl can get a photoshooped picture of President Reagan and himself made at the same lab that Obama uses.

Rove further exposed as the snake he has been...

God bless Shirley for this clarity... And confirming what Mark Levin said... [A true American hero who loves our Country and Constitution!]

Rove and ilk need to go... as does the inept RNC...

Bye-bye, Rove.

Good riddance.

Can´t happen soon enough.

It´s time for him and the Republican Party to get a divorce.

Unite behind what, indeed. It´s time to take off the gloves and if it has to start with our so-called ´ betters ´ then let´s get it over with asap. I guess there are those that have forgotten or completely missed the excitement from the early Tea Party days when we kicked liberal as well as RINO butt in 2010. Karl Rove is trying to erode that concept in the same way and for the same reason that the left does. Power.

I thought Levin´s claim to fame was that he worked for Nixon but quit in a huff.

Karl "Stupidhead" Rove

If they could just keep their stupidity inside the beltway I wouldn´t care. It would be like one of those reality shows I don´t watch - ridiculous, unreal, unentertaining, disconnected,etc.

Outside of Washington DC, there are books on the different forms of intelligence. I´ve read them. With Washingtonians constantly claiming to be smart, I´m at a loss as to what kind of smart that might be.

Perhaps there is a parallel reality out there that normal people can´t inhabit, much less understand. In the other reality reside politicians from the cities and counties, states and Feds.

Citizens aren´t allowed to witness, without a filter imposed by congress, the reality of politicians and their worker bees - they just wouldn´t understand.

Just how in, the case of the rovester, who is supposed to be so smart, could he believe he could lie about something available to his less than adoring public?

Some might say its arrogance. Maybe.

Some might say it doesn´t matter. Okay.

Whatever it is, I don´t find it wise.

Reince Priebus should NEVER have been reappointed.
Debbie washerwoman shultz was everywhere before the election, but WHO remembers Priebus?
He also lied to Mark Levin on National radio about giving money to Michele Bachmann´s re-election campaign. The RNC wanted to beat Bachmann..and would have been happy to have a democrat take her seat.
Snakes in the grass.

Rove was pretty young at the time, it´s entirely possible he worked to help get Reagan elected but not in an official capacity. Or a capacity that would go noticed.

This in-fighting is not helpful. But I will say this: Rove and his gang started it.

Then I would suggest to the OP that they and all the others who have wrinkled noses bent out of joint from all the "infighting" tell Rove and other moderate/RINO people within the RNC to shape up and learn how to play with others instead of trying to be the mean girls within the conservative movement. They started it, they had better learn to swallow the flack thats come back their way.

In politics, you can´t have power for long by winning primaries and losing general elections. People have forgotten that, in Georgia, hard right Republicans won primary after primary and lost General Election after General Election up and down the ticket. I´m a broken glass Republican but I´m honest enough to admit that it took a non-angry, moderate, former Democrat to win the Governor´s race and unleash Republican power in Georgia. The monopoly we now enjoy in both Houses and all Constitutional offices was initially delivered to us by the hated moderates, not my brothers and sisters of the rock-ribbed hard right.

The last two presidential elections the only people Republicans were willing to fight was other republicans, particularly those more conservative. Now, they howl for the conservatives to unite behind them. They are acting like democrats.

I stated earlier in another thread that this schism is unlikley to be bridged; now it looks like it is even wider. Rove has now been branded a liar by the royal court. It is a safe bet, however, he will never leave willingly; and he will continue to prevent the party having any chance to heal.

Psst, Costa Rica is looking better and better, along with a couple of other countries.

Rove worked on the GHW Bush 1980 campaign in a relatively high position. Don´t you think he would continue to work for the Reagan-Bush ticket in 1980 thus working for the head of the ticket?

Karl Rove is a progressive cancer on the Republican Party and is not going away.

I´m hoping Sarah Palin, Col. West, Michelle Bachman Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Ted Cruz, Tim Scott, Rand Paul and other high profile conservatives ditch the Republican Party.

Actually, I believe I heard him say that when he worked in the Reagan administration it was as Chief of Staff to Bill Bennett at the DOE. So yeah, he would definitely know that Rove is lying.

I would think that anyone here who thinks Rove represents the conservative wing of the republican party, is in the wrong forum.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
