Ex-Texas GOP Chairman: Rove Was
in ‘Anti-Reagan Faction’

American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/9/2013 9:00:18 AM

Former Texas Republican State Chairman and ex-Reagan administration official Tom Pauken has released this statement on Karl Rove: Karl Rove campaigned in 1980 against Ronald Reagan and for George Herbert Walker Bush in the Republican presidential primary in Texas. In the general election, I never heard at the time that Karl was running the Reagan campaign in our state. Karl was working for Gov. Clements, but the Reagan leaders in Texas were Ray Barnhart and Ernie Angelo. I knew most of the Reagan leaders around the state, and Karl was not part of that group

In another words, Rove is being revealed as a lying opportunist.

All I know is Rove and Bush left my party in scrambles, with most of the American People confused on what separates the two Partiy´s. Bush owed the American people and the members of his team Republicans a safe, strong economic viable country instead we get a wannabe demigod, shallow dictator who never takes responsibility, and people complaining to me there ain´t a dimes worth of difference between the two party´s (something I still don´t believe).

Get a grip, guys. Rove raised money for Reagan and was part of the Texas effort, but only after the primaries when Texan George H.W. Bush had lost.

This is silliness compounded.

Karl Rove...really. Whose idea was "compassionate conservatism"? I´m with #2. "The Architect", indeed.

Who cares whether Rove got on the Reagan train once he saw how the wind was blowing. Anybody with eyes and a brain can tell that Rove and both Bushes are RINOs or Dem-lites and that is Rove´s first choice.

We need a Reagan personality to win over the Rove establishment. People vote more on personality than issues which they are mostly ignorant of. Too busy making a living to be concerned with filthy politics! Unless there is a tiresome endless war or a bad recession again.

We do need a personality who can appeal to ultra-conservatives, the moderate conservaties and the moderates. I refuse to believe we have any liberals, so we´ll assume we´re to the right of middle. It would help if we stopped the name-calling from both sides. Tea Party Patriots are raising money for candidates and I don´t know why that is ok but it´s not okay for anyone else to do it. I think most of us would agree that we don´t all like the same political figures. We´re going to have to figure this out, though, if we´re ever going to win enough power to exercise it efficiently. Some of you who are condemning Rove for his group´s mission, should actively and loudly encourage whomever you have faith in to stand up and do the same.

#7, try to remember that Reagan didn´t skate to a 1980 nomination victory. There were many of us who supported others until he won the nomination. That doesn´t make Karl Rove or anyone else a devil, a RINO or anything similar.

I´ve said it before, and I guess I´ll say it again--Karl Rove is no conservative, he is an opportunist. I respect him for what he does best--raise money. But do I want him choosing our next candidate? No,no,no,no!

The architect of the last two lost presidential elections. But that was apparently not his fault, it was conservatives who lost those elections. At least that is what we´re frequently told here.

Like many LDots I´ve had reasons to lose some confidence in Rove of late, but the idea that he once supported GHWB against Reagan 30+ years ago is not one of them. Using that reasoning we should have REALLY disliked Reagan himself because he used to be a Democrat.

Mr. Rove is a Godless, joyless, Machiavellian eunuch.. Or as my daughter says, he´s a "tool".
His time is up...he needs to go to ( jail).
Don´t forget this man has a history of treason. He outed a CIA agent ( even though she deserved it) and caused unknown deaths.
The only person or cause Karl Rove cares about is Karl Rove.
Don´t tread on me!

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

"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.

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

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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
