About That ´Permanent
Democratic Majority´

Wall Street Journal, by Karl Rove

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/31/2013 6:04:46 AM

Many are arguing these days that President Obama has forged a new majority coalition of women, minorities, young people and upscale cultural liberals so large and durable that he can do what no president has done before—pursue a very liberal agenda without serious opposition or defections from his own party. Demography is destiny, this argument holds, and it is irrevocably on the side of Mr. Obama and the Democratic Party. (Snip)Start with the obvious: If demographics were determinative, then Republicans shouldn´t have gained 63 seats in the House of Representatives in 2010—the largest midterm shift since 1938—while also

Yeah yeah. Both "parties" are looking too similar to me, only interested in their own power. The people need a voice.

The dems would be a permanent minority if they stopped illegal immigration,had a national ID voters card and lazy white suburbanites would get off their ass and vote.

We have to completely negate the media /punditry created belief that your vote only matters if you live in Ohio. If I had a dollar for every time I heard ´´it all comes down to Ohio´´.... How many voters stayed home because their local races were boring and they´d been told by their betters their vote for POTUS wouldn´t make a difference?

Local GOP has made big strides in blue States. If you don´t bother to ask for people´s votes you surely won´t get them. We have fifty States. Make your case in every one.

Plus the vote, er, enhancers can focus like laser beam on a state or two.

Every time a party wins the White House for a second term, there are tons of articles about the long-term impeding doom of the opposition party. I´ve been reading them since I was a high school kid in 1972 and 1973.

And guess what? The other party comes back, maybe because the new "kings" over-reach, they screw up the economy one more time, or whatever. Admittedly, the Democrats have a few more opportunities to blame the Republicans because the refs (media) are in the RAT´s pocket -- and currently I´m not sure it´s a back pocket, but let´s move on.

The GOP -- or a new conservative party if the GOP elite doesn´t realize there is a change in tactics, especially by the RAT media and academia -- will rise again. And I think the 2014 midterms and the 2016 presidential race could be the proof.

That bulbous, balloon head of Rove´s is so full of methane gas that it can blow any moment. I can´t stand this blabber mouth. I´ve put him into the same category with Peggy Noonan - the category of not worth reading or listening to any longer.
Shut up Karl and just go away. (The only other Karl that I know of that spelled his name with a K was Karl Marx.)

Well, it´s settled, then. Listen to Rove, stick with the GOP, amnesty some illegals, and stand by for the dawning of the next era of establishment Republican Party opportunism.

Karl Rove needs to rearrange his deck chair over to the side with the iceberg.

We need to learn to tolerate people who do not think exactly as we do. Do we have so many Republicans in our party that we can start urging people to get lost?

It used to be Boehner who was asked to get lost, now many are praising him. The same could happen with Rove. Someday he will do something you approve of.

Rove, How did your backing of RINOs work for you in the 2012 Election-----being a liberal Republican wasn´t exactly a pathway to election. I believe you are irrelevant and your endorsement wasn´t worth ´snot´.
Did I hear your comment correctly when you said this about Gov. Palin-----who was the boot strap holder of the 3 new Senators elected to Congress in 2012. Yep, one was Ted Cruz who put your pretty boy "go along to get along RINO" Dewhurst in the back seat, right?

Personally, the only guy that makes me happy lately is the new Congressman from Texas. Cruz is the only guy I´ve heard stand up for what he said and refuse to apologize for having an opinion outside what the press considers proper. I don´t care what any others say right now. I only want to hear a man who means what he says and is truly Conservative.

The hard fact is that there are a lot of people who want to get their hands on taxpayer funds. The Dims are by far the worst culprits.

When the majority focuses on what these kind of people are doing with the public money there may be a restoration of sanity.

The Republicans have a "messaging" problem within their own party. That´s why so many "Republicans" stayed home and let BO win a second term. Personally I don´t get it, the worst Republican was far better than BO but they did it anyway. So what´s up with that? Are some demanding absolute compliance with hard lined Conservatism? Good luck with that. You will never win an election or have an effective voice. Issues like immigration are not going to be concluded by kicking all illegals out of the Country. Not going to happen. I would love to see Social Security become a private account but I doubt I will ever see it. Maybe the IRA system could be enhanced. But I know I have to "settle" for less than my desires. So what can we "live with" and what "must" get done?

#18, I agree you, but you may not have been here when some of the loudest posters were telling us that any Democrat is better than a "RINO", thus the cheering when Republican senators were defeated at the polls by the ones with a D behind the name. There was even cheering for Granny Warren over our own Scott Brown, because Brown didn´t fit the template. I will never comprehend the logic of preferring any Democrat over a Republican incumbent. The numbers matter. Obviously, I wasn´t a fan of some of the R´s, either, but there´s no way I´m cheering for a Democrat to defeat one of our own.

I keep hearing about the millions of conservatives that stayed home and didn´t vote. Can someone prove that? I never heard a word about Romney being a Mormon or that anyone wouldn´t vote for him. Early on I heard he was not a true conservative but if he were the candidate, they would vote for him. If someone was truly a conservative, I can´t believe they didn´t go to the polls and vote for Romney because even if he had 3 eyes, he would have been better than the other guy. If that many conservatives did truly not vote, then I guess we deserve what we got. But I´d like to see proof. Saying it doesn´t make it so.

True Conservatives are tired of being sucked in. We find ourselves unable to trust either party. Both lie to us, both think more highly of themselves than they do of our Country. That is what angers us and that is we seem to be eating our own at times. Our own have become too much like d´rats. All Conservatves ask is that we nominate a True Conservative, we stand behind that person as a group and we work to elect that person. IF the GOP were to find that Right person, then and only then would there be no problem. No degree needed to figure that out.

Texas Race Has Democratic Party Squirming

AUSTIN, Texas—As it makes a bid for relevance in the Lone Star State, the Texas Democratic Party is contending with a "Kinky" problem. The state party had lined up a preferred slate of candidates under gubernatorial nominee Wendy Davis for this fall, as it seeks to win a statewide office for the first time since 1994. But Richard "Kinky" Friedman, a cigar-chomping, cowboy-hat-wearing humorist, crashed the party. He knocked out the establishment Democrats´ favored candidate, Hugh Asa Fitzsimons III, in this month´s primary for agriculture commissioner, a powerful position that oversees an agency with 700 employees and a $550 million annual

It’s an unseasonably warm February afternoon in Terlingua, and the power of the cloudless sky’s white sun reflected off the pale desert dirt is so overwhelming it bleaches the color out of everything it touches. Everything except the jalapeño-red facade of the Chili Pepper Cafe and Michael Drinkard’s lizard-patterned green shirt. Drinkard works with the Terlingua chapter of the Family Crisis Center of the Big Bend, a nonprofit that serves as the community’s de facto social services office, handling everything from domestic violence to food shortages. Right now, he says over a Texas-size iced tea, he should be planning the center’s

NEW ORLEANS -- I came to Louisiana to do some reporting on Sen. Mary Landrieu´s bid to win a fourth term in a tough political year. But before heading to the key parishes that will determine Landrieu´s fate this November, I stopped by the Lower Ninth Ward to see how rebuilding efforts are faring nearly nine years after Hurricane Katrina. I visited one particular spot — the area where in August 2005 a flood wall holding the waters of the Industrial Canal broke, setting off a calamity that continues to this day.

Union representatives from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are now accompanying federal government safety inspectors on site visits to review labor complaints at nonunion private businesses, The Daily Caller has learned. SEIU and other labor unions can accompany the government inspectors on site visits due to a quiet and contested Obama administration rule clarification issued last year in response to a request from a union representative. SEIU agents recently accompanied an inspector from the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a division of the Department of Labor, on three visits to nonunion work sites under contract with the Houston-based janitorial

Some lies just won’t go away. In February the Washington Post published an article with the following headline: “Why There’s No Democratic Version of the Koch Brothers’ Organization.” It was the umpteenth attempt to explain, in a particularly simplistic manner, how the millionaires and billionaires who donate money to the Democratic Party are nothing, absolutely nothing, like those meanie cancer research philanthropists Charles and David Koch. The author, Reid Wilson, interviewed “Democratic strategists who deal frequently with high-dollar donors,” and these Democratic strategists told him, strategically, that their high-dollar donors are better than Republican ones. “For the Koch brothers, electing the

As the prognosticators have adjusted their horoscopes and hesitantly determined that the Republicans may well have a fruitful November, President Obama has sought refuge in a fantasy. “In midterms,” Obama complained to donors last night, “we get clobbered, either because we don’t think it’s important or because we get so discouraged about what’s happening in Washington that we think it’s not worth our while.” Noting obsequiously how grateful he was for their money and support, the president went on to hit a bittersweet note. “We’re going to have to get over that,” he insisted. “This is a top priority.” Comforting as

Fred Phelps, the “God Hates Fags” chronic cleric protester from so-called Westboro Church, who died yesterday, proved America’s endless capacity to hype charlatans and kooks. He became a national personality because he persuaded his family cult of several dozen children, grandchildren and in-laws to follow his absurd crusade. Many of the Phelps progeny are lawyers, so they sustained their sect by litigation, often against their adversaries, while spending reputedly hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to demonstrate around the country. Their signage was printed at their own print shop. Phelps was himself a disbarred lawyer who in his early years apparently litigated

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

A Washington Post story purporting to expose the Koch brothers as behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the Keystone Pipeline has been exposed as an utterly false propaganda operation, hilariously wrong and politically malicious. Even worse, one of the writers behind the story is married to a political operative in the left wing Koch-demonization machine. The Washington Post was recently purchased by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, who ought to take a hard look at the reporters and editors who collaborated with the left wing smear machine, and while he is at it, should send a note of thanks to John Hinderaker, the blogger

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at
