The Atlantic Wire, by Elspeth Reeve

Original Article

Posted By:Rakasha, 2/4/2013 12:34:43 PM

Karl Rove´s American Crossroads has started a new group to make sure the 2014 Senate races produce zero Todd Akins. But it turns out some conservatives like Rove less than Akin. The Conservative Victory Project will spend money in Republican primaries to defeat far-right candidates, The New York Times´ Jeff Zeleny reported this weekend. (snip)But conservatives noted that establishment Republicans who didn´t talk about rape lost, too.

The GOP needs to get rid of idiots like Akins. Focus on what we need to do. next thing is to organize a ground game.

I don´t necessarily disagree with you, #2, but not every Republican destroyed by the left for a simple slip of the tongue or for pointing out the truth is an idiot.

George Allen
Sarah Palin
Dan Quale
and on and on...

We should not be so quick to help the left do that to us and it sounds a little like Rove is doing exactly that. I also don´t think Rove and his buds really care about what their activity results in as long as they make big bucks doing it.

In the original NYT interview , Steven J Law said “We don’t view ourselves as being in the incumbent protection business, but we want to pick the most conservative candidate who can win.”
How dare they !
As Jim DeMint is quoted as saying -he would rather be in the minority and not sacrifice his principles,
than to be in the majority.
The left and some on the right are purposefully distorting the comments and aim of the new PAC.
And happily pitting one faction of the Republican party against another.
The media , on both sides ,
always plays the right like a fiddle.
The far right is predictably going to expend energy in a fury at this Republican PAC , when they should be expending energy at Democrats.
The Conservative Victory Group said their goal is to field the most electable conservatives
to run in the primaries.
The far right should say -That´s our goal, too.
But, No-they announce that their goal is to defeat Rove and Law and the Conservative Victory Group.
In 21 months , Democrats just need to flip 17 more House seats to retake control and give Obama
free reign for his last two years.
Well played media and Democrats.

Mr. Rove is a hypocrite of the worst kind. He claims to love Republican values but hates real conservativism. He and his RINO posse have seriously damaged the Republican brand, and they need to go (to the Democrats where they belong). It´s time for real conservatives to take back the Party by standing up and pledging support to leaders like Palin, Akins, Limbaugh, Engel, and O´Donnell.

"It seems to me, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that is really rare. If it´s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down," Akin said. "But let´s assume that maybe that didn´t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child."

TA was relating info told to him. He equivocates (´To try´) and the Right piled on him, as opposed to grabbing the narrative and rebutting the calumny of the Left.

If he was TOTALLY wrong, there would be no such a thing as ´miscarriages´.

No, we went after the wrong people. Once again, we did the heavy lifing for the Left.

How about schooling our candidates on how to respond to gotcha´ questions.
Such as, "Since I do not totally agree with the premise of your question, as stated, I will not honor it with a reply."
Rove has turned into a RINO of the worst kind; one able to raise $$$ from the easily swayed or those corporations whose main aim is diversity.

If the GOP would like to win elections with te help of conservatives, they need to get rid of people like Rove.

THEN, they need to get rid of morons like Akin and Mourdock. Intelligent people will never vote for idiots who utter ridiculous, stupid, and poorly thought out utterances.

Rove is more than all right with me, as is his ex-boss, with whom he is undoubtedly in tune. Rove is a realist, and compared to the hard right, a moderate. I think he´s doing his best to support the same values as conservatives, but is doing so in a in a realistic way, which some do not recognize as necessary. There is more than one way to the same goal, ya know, and why kick someone in the shins who is doing their best to get there in the best way they know how? And to accuse him of cynical pecuniary motivations without believing in the cause he´s espousing I think says more about the accuser than about Rove.

#6, you cannot possibly be serious in referring to Akin and O´Donnell as leaders. Leaders of what? O´Donnell was a flake, plain and simple. Akin was a jerk whose ego cost us a winnable senate seat. John Brunner, the actual Tea Party-endorsed candidate, would have made a fine replacement for Claire McAskill.

In some ways, Rove and our friend, poster #8 have it right.

"No more Akins" means no more stupid idiot comments. Only Democrats and liberals are allowed to say idiocy and get away with it.

Is it right? No. But it is what it is.

We need to tell the stenographers for the Obama Regime and the RAT stooge party (ie, the media) to stick it in their ear when they ask a stupid question. And move on.

That´s what "No More Akins" means to me.

#11, agree or disagree with the stand, but Akin was making a pretty salient point:

Why are we punishing the baby just because his father is a bad man?
Yes, that was lost in the mad rush of REPUBLICANS going out of their way to perform the evisceration FOR the Left, but his statement is in line with his Pro-Life stand. A leader stands by his principles.

O´Donnell was no more a flake than you or I. You know what a flake is? A grown man PROUDLY proclaiming himself a "marxist".
NOT a progressive, not a liberal but a MARXIST.
Which is EXACTLY what Senator Coons self identifies as.
But hey, at least Rove et al saved us from O´Donnell........and sacrificed the Country.

"No more Akins"? The issue should be what exactly are Torpedoman´s Mate Tokyo Rove´s values!

Mr. Akin, the former conservative Representative from Missouri´s 2nd Congressional District, holds engineering and divinity degrees, served as an engineering officer in the National Guard/Army Reserves, is a devout Christian, has raised six children, including three sons who graduated from the USNA and served as officers in the USMC, worked for IBM, helped manage his family´s steel business and has been married for going on thirty-eight years to his first and only wife.

And so, because the GOP knows we have nowhere else to go, they trash traditional conservatives to woo the wishy washy. They promote "moderates" who are nothing more than democrat lites, and the nation continues its spiral into Eurosocialism.
No more. They cannot count on my vote. Winning is no longer worth the price. If I must live as a slave, let it at least be without my consent.

Where does all this anger come from? If Karl Rove wants to raise money to support candidates he likes, it is his absolute right to do so. We should welcome all such efforts from the ones on our side. And, yes, Rove is one of us. If you disagree with him or his causes, then there are other focus and fund-raising groups you might prefer. But, it is just so self-defeating for us to condemn those who don´t fit into our rigid political requirements. But, the list of "leaders" from #6 doesn´t contain a single person who is putting together something from which to lead. I guess it might be comforting for you to dream of one of those people stepping forth, #6, but until they do it´s more productive to support those who are actually working toward success.

I can´t stand Rove and the more he talks the less I listen. Instead of bringing people into the party he is going out of his way to throw people out and never let them in. Sorry but Republicans are the party of stupid, they are more concerned about what someone will say about them than standing on principal. He is worried about Akin, yet the democrats have Pelosi, Menendez, that idiot from TX, Sheila Jackson Lee, oh lets not forget Debbie Wasserman Schultz, they always say stupid things but they are not being bullied like Akin is.

Rove is totally right. Akin is a certifiable jerk. He and all those who denigrate women really should leave the GOP and start their own party.

Those who have so little love for humankind and care only for themselves and those who agree with them - should honestly start their own party. That is NOT what the republican aprty is about. These loud mouths are nothing more than that - mouths - who try to shout down everyone else - because they are too stupid to be persuasive. Please - please leave the party!

The anger comes from watching those who step up to lead - those who´s ideals some of us share - get trashed by the Party that they have supported and that, ostensibly, supported them. Sarah Palin was chosen to be McCain´s Vice President. She had run as a Republican as Mayor of Wassilla and Governor of Alaska. Suddenly, coincidentally, right at the time she became very popular with the Republican electorate at large, she was a ´poor choice´. She was ´uninformed´, ´uneducated´, ´petty´ and ´stupid´ according to some. She was abandoned and hung out to dry and when she didn´t shrivel up she was attacked.

Allen West was cut out of his election bid by Republican gerrymandering after a very successful run and, coincidentally, after pointing out that some of the Democrats currently in Congress are communists. That wasn´t a surprise to some of us but apparently it was a real shocker to the higher ups in the Republican Party. Or maybe it just made it embarrassing to sit down mext to those Congressmen at the next luncheon.

Akin, a Republican acceptable enough to be elected several times in the past made a - granted - not thought out comment and the same people who defended Romney for tying a dog crate to the roof of his car (you have to admit, not well thought out) were calling for his head.

In my own Congressional district, a man who was good enough to be endorsed by several Republicans when they were sure that McCotter had the position sewn up was run down, disparaged and faced an attempt to overthrow his election chances with a write-in campaign for an ´established´ (their word) incumbant by the same Republicans that had endorsed him.

The people attempting to influence candidates and votes are not working to support candidates working toward success. They are attempting to control the Republican narrative even if they have to wrest it from the hands of the Republican voters. And they are doing it because Conservatives do not fit into their rigid political requirements.

That is why we are angry.

You cannot compare Allen West to these morons Akin and Mourdock. Allen West is conservative not a religious fanatic. We really need men of character Akin and Mourdock knew they had lost after their stupid comments, they could have dropped out but they didn´t, they where to selfish and concerned with only themselves.

Being a decent person is not sufficient qualification to fight the fascist takeover of our country, #15, as Mr. Akins has made abundantly clear. As soon as he made those comments it was clear he would lose. He chose to stay in the race, putting self above country, and in my book that is contemptible.

True Republican core values are: smaller (minimal) government, lower taxes, strict adherence to the Constitution, equality for all under the law, free market capitalism, fiscal and economic responsibility, championing the individual above the state, freedom, liberty, upholding inalienable individual rights, recognizing and upholding private property rights. Those are the only principles we should be demanding are upheld at party level. Anything else is individual choice and beliefs and most should be handled at the state level. My point is that we are NOT the party of Christian zealots only--nor should we be. We have people of all different beliefs and backgrounds as it should be. Most moral social issues should not be at the party level as they have become. It is killing the party and any chance to move forward. That said, Rove is WRONG! While Akin should not have taken the bait on the gotcha issue, he probably should have stepped aside because even if his answer was qualified with "try to", it was very harmful to the party. Still that doesn´t mean that we should be killing every candidate that puts his foot in his mouth either. And we certainly do not need to have our candidates chosen for us like the elitest establishment Rove wants to do.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as

“Morning has broken, like the first morning.” Whatever your faith, if you’ve got any at all, that’s pretty much what it boils down to. The sun comes up, and we give it another shot.(snip) Stevens converted to Islam in the late 1970s, and he angered a lot of fans when he appeared to support the fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie with comments he made in 1989. But for a kid in thrall to the kinetic power of the spinning records in his father’s hi-fi console, Stevens seemed to be living proof that popular music (he had 11 Top 40 hits in
