Karl Rove Dismisses Tea Party
Backlash: We Need ‘Fewer Christine
O’Donnells And More Rand Pauls’

Through his new Conservative Victory Project, aimed at backing conservative candidates who will actually win elections, Karl Rove has upset some conservatives and Tea Partiers. This weekend, he paid a visit to Fox News Sunday, where Wallace confronted him with some of that backlash. Rove said his favorite reaction was that of Mark Levin, who called him “queen for a day.” They did spent $30 million on Tea Party candidates, Rove said, specifically citing Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). “Look, Todd Akin was not a Tea Party candidate,” he added. Their objective, he said,

I agree.

I disagree, the Republican party is stronger at the local level then the national party, so why should I think national intervention would help?

Akin was Claire McCaskill´s candidate. O´Donnell and Angle were just nuttier than can be. I´ve always felt the problem is turnout. Primary turnout is usually so low a fringe candidate can rally a small group of supporters and win.

How many tea party candidates won and how many lost. The focus is always on Angle, Aikin and O´Donnell. Karl Rove is a tub of lard desperate to stay in the lime light.

Instead of always blaming the right, how about pointing fingers to the real enemies on the left. We all know the left is dirty and the media knows how to destroy. Angle lost when Reid imported the union vote to Nevada. O´Donnell did herself a disfavor by acting naive. Once that happened the media took over her campaign. Akin should have never been on the ticket. Some blame goes to the GOP but more to McCaskill who did what she had to do to keep her seat. Let´s face it, the Dems do a better job of finding ways to win.
It´s time to toughen up and turn the page.

Rand Paul needs Rove´s approval like he needs a hole in his head.
Go away Rove, you showed your stripes, now go away.

Excuse me Karl, but Todd Akin did win general elections since he was in the U.S. House of Representatives for 12 years. I´m not saying Akin was the Senate candidate I wanted but Karl Rove speculating on Akin´s murder is beyond the pale. I simply won´t support Rove people.

Don´t consultants like Karl Rove make their money on how much they get others to contribute PLUS all the media buys? Surely he has made enough money by now from the wealthy donors he has shaken down. My big question is these wealthy donors aren´t stupid men...pretty soon they are going to want some action for their money...not just Karl´s dud candidates who don´t win.

Like I wrote before...surely that is enough time and treasure spent on one big hot air balloon...time to toddle off, Karl.

I did not like the way that increasingly obnoxious little Chris Wallace purposely set Rove up this morning to let him answer and frame his critics. When he bragged about supporting Rubio? Well duh with the other alternative being Charlie Crist, wow, hard decision!!! Karl is one desperate-looking, bing, walking talking point. Stick a fork in him. He is done.

I say welcome to any who are willing to put time and effort into finding, recruiting, supporting and, hopefully, electing good Republicans. If you don´t care for Karl Rove´s choices, send money to some other group. Good for all of them.

Rove, you helped destroy O´Donnell prior to the election with your loud mouth on national TV because she beat your $$$$$$$$$ man. Now, instead of always talking about Murdock and Akin, Rove should mention the 10 to 12 he endorsed who LOST in the general. The only 3 new Senators inducted as a result of the 2012 election were endorsed by Gov. Palin and the T.E.A. movement participants with the establishment/elites/Rove endorsing their peer in the primary, i.e., Dewherst.

I say forget about the "backlash" and just get Uncle Karl off the national airwaves! His uncanny resemblance to Sturmbannfuhrer Arnold Ernst Toht, the Gestapo agent, in "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" is, quite frankly, doing great harm to the GOP´s ongoing efforts to "win the hearts and minds" of the American People!

Dems May Regret Steyer’s Keystone Payoff
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/20/2014 5:39:33 PM     Post Reply
After a lengthy study of the plans for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, the U.S. State Department issued an 11-volume report back in January confirming what most experts had already concluded long before then: the vital project would not damage the environment or increase the rate of carbon pollution. But liberal activists weren’t happy and have used the 90-day automatic review process that followed that report to furiously lobby the administration to stop the construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf Coast refineries. The key player in that effort was Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmental

Stevens: Fix Second Amendment to Remove
“Any Limits” on Government Power

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens supports gutting the Second Amendment in order to remove any limit on government infringements on the right of self-defense. In his new book Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution, Stevens — who generally favored maximum government power during his 35-year tenure on the high court — proposes, among other things, changing the language of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution so that the amendment would read, “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms [when serving in the militia] shall not be infringed.” Stevens acknowledged in

A man on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program has been charged with kidnapping, raping, and torturing a 16-year-old girl in South Los Angeles, and detectives suspect he may be connected to three other recent murders. Robert L. Ranson, 30, was arrested in late March after the girl escaped from a U-Haul van in an alley near Imperial Highway and New Hampshire Ave., according to police and booking records. The girl was covered in gasoline and said her attacker, later identified as Ranson, had tied her hands and taped her mouth, and was trying to light her on

Dem Senator Nearly Hit by Train During

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) has been waging a campaign demanding safety accountability for the Metro-North railway this week after it was discovered that the MTA has had 139 violations resulting in $552,000 worth of fines over the last ten years. But as he discovered this week, there is also an element of personal responsibility when it comes to commuter train safety. Blumenthal was holding a press conference Friday on the Milford Metro-North station platform when an Amtrak train came barreling into the station and almost knocked him out cold. Just as Milford Mayor Ben Blake was saying, “safety, as you know,

With little fanfare, Vermont is preparing to become the first state to implement a single-payer, government-run health-care system. The Vermont plan, if implemented, would abolish private health insurance in the state and replace it with a taxpayer-funded system under which the state government directly pays doctors and hospitals. Of course the state is having a bit of trouble figuring out how to pay for the program’s estimated $2 billion price tag, considering that the entire state government’s operating budget is currently just $2.7 billion. Currently under consideration is an increase in the state sales tax from 6.9% to 29%. At

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.

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, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. 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. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

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
