Levin to Rove: "Bring it on, Karl baby.
Bring it on, doughboy. Bring on
your little whiteboard"

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Hooverdog, 2/8/2013 7:49:12 AM

The back-and-forth verbal jabs between former Bush White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, his deputies at American Crossroads and some of the conservative movement’s so-called “critically important figures” took another intense turn on Mark Levin’s radio show on Thursday, with Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King entering the fray. “[L]et me put something to you folks about Karl Rove — what a propagandist this man is,” Levin said at the end of his program.

This is small ball and childish. We should be aiming our verbal guns at the Dems.

#1 is right. Maybe Levin doesn´t realize there is a world beyond Karl Rove´s fundraising group.

To the contrary - Mark Levin is 100% correct. Rove is a threat to conservatism, hence the survival of this country. Rove is spewing hate against our best people, in order to maintain the RINO elite at Versailles on the Potomoc, including himself. If Rove wins, the Republican Party will be a permanent minority without meaning or principle.

Thank you #3 - as numbers 1 and 2, from deep inside the RNC or Rove´s Super PAC, needed redirection badly.

No Nimby, Rove is, and has. You see the R by his name and go completely blind to the devastation he has wrought to the conservative vision for America, not to mention the R losses he has caused. I mean, are you Rove´s mama?

Take a serious look at what he has done since 2000. No single person has done more to hurt conservatism than Karl Rove.

It started when his decision to sit on the Bush DUI story lead to the election fiasco. Then his strategery of hand picking moderate candidates cost us control of the house then the senate and the presidency.

Rove has advised candidates to ´just ignore´ left-wing bull-shite attacks on the grounds that it is ´beneath your dignity´ to respond.

THAT is his biggest mistake....his belief that the sheeple will know whats BS and what´s not.

His mode is to take the money, sit back, and not do a damned thing

Oh, give it a rest, the last post about GW having a drinking problem eons ago did not hurt GW and neither did Karl Rove do anything against the sainted (s/o) levin, greeneyed monster got to levin and makes him look like a fool. I have no idea why this is even considered newsworthy. levin would do well to help x out the dims and leave our donors alone.

This schism in the Republican Party has been in the making for years and it is not going to be bridged. Rove aggravated this with his words specifically targeting the Tea Party.

All those calling for focus and unity on defeating the democrats fail to understand that noone is going to be effective in defeating an opponent when they have no confidence in those standing beside or behind them. Rove has demonstrated he is happy to put a knife in the back of Conservatives.

It is a shame this situation exists because the party is comprised of great people but the leadership is only about themselves. People tout Cruz and Rubio has saviors. Guess what? Neither one has been there long enough to be immune to the corrupting forces. Seriously, Rubio is already joining forces with McCain, Graham, and Schumer.

So the rift will remain and the vitriol will get worse, and I am afraid the GOP has been fatally wounded.

Optimism motivates you to get out of bed. Realism puts food on your table.

I am flabergasted by all the Rove sycophants posting today. And yes, that last minute reveal about GW´s drinking problem from years ago, 3 days before election nearly cost him the election. I believe that is why we were subjected to the Florida decision from the Supremes. Bush never truly lived that down. Rove is a huge problem, and the quicker he is dealt with, the faster we can start taking back our party. Reagan would not have idly sat by and done nothing.

I´d say Rove´s bunch fired the first shot in this little dust-up. It´s been simmering for a long time and the Republicans on both sides are too polite, civilized and insipid to bring the discussion into the public arena. I´m happy to see just a little passion our of our side - furthermore I believe this is exactly the right time to get this out of our collective systems. Are we Constitution conservatives or is the party just another power-structure that seeks to do only what it takes to garner enough votes to keep the ruling class in the public eye so they can occasionally be voted into office.

It is better to handle the serpent in your own nest first. Rove and his ilk are akin to the Dem elites, just a different stripe.

Loyal Republicans who are still playing by the old paradigm are going to watch the GOP go up in flames and unless they open their eyes to see what happened, they will go to their graves lamenting the ´evil´ conservatives and the Tea Party, never quite understanding that unprincipled and power hungry individuals have been running the Republican Party for years. They have been playing you. Wake. The. Hell. Up.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.

Those who can´t stand Levin´s passion ( I´m married to one) don´t understand how much he loves this country , understands what´s at stake and how to fix it. If you take the time to read his books you will see why he is so fearful of a Karl Rove - an elitist ( yeah, I hear his drawl-get over it) who derives power from hearing himself called someone else´s brain.

#7 - Yes, our country faces extinction. Why is that? Because liberals in both parties spent us into oblivion trying to buy votes. They refuse to reform the entitlements, and the Republicans continuously sell us out and kick the can down the road.

Real Conservatives have offered solutions and people like Rove cut them off at the knees, so he and his ilk can remain at the trough. I will never give money to the RNC again, and Rove and his cronies are dead to me.

What a monumental waste of hundreds of millions of precious resources went down in the last election! Third party or bust! RNC-phooey!

I love Mark Levin. I think he is a patriot BUT we part ways as far as his thinking about the republican party. Levin and Limbaugh have huge audiences and they have done as much to divide the republican party as Obama and his ilk have. I would much rather have seen them handle things as Hannity did. I felt Hannity was extremely fair to all that were trying to get the GOP nod and did not show favortism. They hammered Romney during the primaries then once he secured the nomination it was less than enthusiastic support for the man. Espcially Levin. Say what you want about the democrat party but they rally behind their candidate and until we begin to do that we are finished as a party.

I am becoming convinced, # 18, that many of the Loyal Republicans have their eyes wide open and they like what they are seeing. Their pseudo-placatory comments and soothing platitudes are nothing more than ill disguised attempts to keep conservatives on the plantation a little longer because they know full well that if we leave before they have garnered enough moderates and fed-up dems their party is sunk.

In short, we are the ones being played.

I say it´s time for a new game and new rules. Conservatism wins when its message is clearly understood. If the Republican Party can´t - or won´t - articulate that message then we need a new messenger. Don´t let them tell us that it can´t be done when what they mean is that they don´t want it done. Don´t forget the House revolution of 2010. That was brought about by conservatives. We only got in trouble when we let The Party carry our message, believing that we were all on the same team. It is clear now that we are not.

We can win. But not with coaches and managers who do not believe in us and won´t let us play our best game.

Dr. Levin is right. Rove is despised by the grassroots. And why do I suspect that the usual suspects here don´t even listen to the show? I know I´m right and you know I´m right. As Levin would say, "Get off the phone, you big dope."

Karl Rove didn´t help the Republicans to gain any sweeping victories. He gave us "skin-of-the-teeth" victories, and we all know how that played out in 2000. Rove looked absolutely ridiculous and panicked on election night last November. He was so sure that Romney would win. Then came the Ohio results. And there was Rove fumbling around in disbelief.

Rove is desperately trying to be relevant. I could care less what he has to say; he´s not the least big enlightening. We don´t need his advice or his little whiteboard.

The future of the Republican Party is at stake right now and it is people like Rove who are taking it down. They are pushing candidates who will consolidate RINO power around THEM. If you care about the country get on board to take it back.

After the 2008 election the GOP barely existed and no one was upset about it. McConnell said on camera the GOP was really just a regional southeast group. The only reason anyone started to talk about the GOP again was because of the Tea Party. The GOP did not want the people we gave them in Nov. 2010, moved from day one to crush them and did. The GOP today has no ideology. They can´t describe why they´re much better than democrats. They don´t want their candidates to differentiate themselves from democrats. They want big gov. just as much. What more do you need to see that this is pointless? Mark Levin talks about what has been obvious to me for a long time, which is that the entire GOP establishment must leave the public stage if we´re to have a chance of saving this country. Rove is just one. Roger Ailes is Rove´s enabler. It all must be dealt with because there´s no choice.

For all you Mark Levin bashers who don´t even listen to his program , here is my response on a Karl Rove thread from yesterday. I listen to Mark daily. STOP bashing HIM!!

Rove had a hand in spreading rumors about the other candidates and not offering any support to the candidacy of anyone OTHER than Romney.
NIght after night on Fox. The same old tired reasons from him and Ann Coulter why Romney was the ONLY one that had the credibility to stop Obama.
Yeah, right....Romneycare cred. No going- on- the- offense cred regarding Benghazi. I´ll never forget the look on his face in the Candy Crowley debate....."really Mr. President?" Mitt said with the look of disbelief on his face and then the entire subject was DROPPED!!!!! This is in part why Hillary got to escape criticism at her hearing. If there had been a cogent drum beat of BENGHAZIGATe, these creeps would not have gotten away with murder. Karl Rove was too busy calculating numbers on his "white board" on how much of a landslide Romney would win by.
Jackwagon.
No use for him whatsoever.

I like listening to Levin most of the time (though I don´t learn much from him that I don´t already know). But stuff like this makes him look like a slightly less dyspeptic Michael Savage. Remember, Mark, a house divided against itself cannot stand--you are doing the same thing you accuse Rove of doing.

Levin is one of the main reasons for the low turn out of conservatives for Romney. His initial vitirol against Romney coupled with his reluctant support after the nomination did more to elect Obama than anything Karl Rove did.

I agree with Mark Levin, Rove can take his white board and go home. This rhetoric of circular firing squads is ridiculous. Rove has been lining up Conservative candidates against political walls and using his influence and PACs as the firing squads.

Karl Rove has slandered and destroyed way too many Conservatives running for office.

The best thing about an article like this is that is once again shows who the Moderates are and who the Conservatives are on L.COM. I enjoy reading the Moderates posts blaming Rush, Levin and Conservatives in general for all the ills of the GOP. The Moderates out number the Conservatives so we get candidates like McCain and Romney. Then when Conservatives disagree with said Moderates we are the bad guys. We are suppose to just go along with the Moderates. Sounds like the Lefts talking points. I realize the Moderates despise Conservatives but when you continue to poke us in the eye and then get mad when we don´t see how you are correct and we are the problem, well, tough luck.

What #43 said. IMO, we need look no further than some of the comments about what is going on in the Republican party. No wonder the demonrats are hysterical with laughter at the infighting in the GOP. Even Marco Rubio gets hammered for talking of "immigration". It´s no wonder we continue to lose elections. I agree #7, but it´s just so much fun to denigrate Republicans who are not at 110% agreement with the "true" Conservatives in the once grand old party. There is no hope as long as outside interests are running the GOP, and I don´t mean Karl Rove.

I don´t think the GOP knows how close it is to becoming the Whig party of the 21st century which is amazing really.

There is huge part of the party that has basically said enough is enough. They have held their nose since GH Bush and voted for the establishment candidate. In return their ideas and themselves are ignored and mocked. However, they are suppose still sing kumbaya with the very people that take their donations and support candidates opposed to their core beliefs.

I come from a strong Republican family but my allegiance is the Constitution and not the party. The party no longer cares about the Constitution and what it represents. Since it doesn´t represent the Constitution it doesn´t represent me.

I say let it all rip. Both sides argue loud and long and make your points. The rest of us will decide what we think and what we believe.

We are upside down in this country, so passion for a direction is a very good thing.

Most days I feel as if the First Amendment is hanging by a spider´s web thread, so say everything and anything you want about the direction for the country as long as we have the Constitutional to support free speech.

Not surprising that the "Rovers" are also the primary Palin haters on this site. So, I guess it´s OK for you to hate and destroy a fellow Republican, but not OK for the rest of us to do the same?

Rove is a proven loser, he needs to sit down, shut up, and get out of the way. It´s pathetic the way he and his ilk hang onto their power, and how any serious Conservative can give him any is beyond me.

# 50, You may have missed American Crossroads spokesman Jonathan Collegio´s vitriolic and dismissive comments toward Brent Bozell and several other well known conservatives.

http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=722467

As a Palin supporter you are certainly also aware of the vitriol aimed at her by her fellow Republicans. An above poster has it absolutely right. This is not a circular firing squad; Conservatives have been fired upon and now those that fired on us are angry because, instead of ducking for cover and raising the white flag, we are firing back.

They do not fight for the constitution or try to represent us. They only care about reelection and political preservation for themselves. We have to fight this battle, too, at every primary.

#18 & #30 are insightful. While the rank and file is conservative, the R leadership, most emphatically, is not and has never been. The GOP and its POTUS nominees, w/the exception of Coolidge and Reagan; have always been secular, progressive and corporatist which is why they have no problem w/big government and high taxes; despite the usual election year sanctimony. This long overdue fight is between principle and principal. Predictably, the usual suspects trot out their banalities about ´the eleventh commandment, we gotta win, circular firing squad´ etc. Reality is simple. One is either a principled conservative first or one is a republican.
They are as mutually exclusive as a Catholic Muslim.

We conservatives have our core values and if we falter, and compromise on our core beliefs, we are no better than the democrats.
GW Bush ran on being a "compassionate conservative"..which was a slap at conservatives..as if we were NOT compassionate..that started me watching his campaign very carefully.
I am with Levin all the way..we either take back our party to conservative, basic values, or the party is dead.
Moderates, or middle of the road people end up as road kill.
Stand for something you believe in.
Lower taxes
Smaller Government
Family values
More businesses and jobs

I´m with #54.

If you don´t have core principles, you have nothing.

Rove only cares about Rove´s bank account.
If you are behind, and your group is REALLY determined to win, they will give you more money to make it happen. When it doesn´t, and things get worse, you need even more money from those people that REALLY want to win. Rinse. Repeat. Wake UP!

Levin is sounding more and more like Michael Savage with the name-calling. What is he, in 7th grade?

The fight for control of the Republican Party has to happen; there really isn´t any alternative. It is easier and faster for actual conservatives to take control of the Republican Party than to start a 3rd. It may not work, but the present course is definitely not working.

Demoncrats are stealing elections and ruining the country and giant egos on our side are attacking Rove. Now that´s a winning strategy. We are playing the msm medias game.

10 reasons we shouldn’t discount
Rick Perry for 2016
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin    Original Article

Is Texas Gov. Rick Perry “sitting pretty” for 2016 as one journalist put it, or is another presidential run likely to be a flop, a campaign that barely gets off the ground? At the Conservative Political Action Conference gathering last month, Perry showed that he can still deliver a stem-winder. And at a Fort Hood news conference after the shooting, he showed the maturity and calm that voters will look for in a presidential contender: “There aren’t any easy answers to what occurred here, and there’s no way to wish away the suffering that’s occurring. Right now today, millions of

Are there no heroes left in America anymore? President Obama turns out to be an incompetent fraud who has never actually read the U.S. Constitution. Edward Snowden tucked tail and fled to Siberia. Washington Nationals star Ryan Zimmerman can no longer be relied upon to scoop up a crazy bouncer just inside third base line, pirouette and throw like a laser into first baseman Adam LaRoche’s mitt.

HOUSTON – Deputies have arrested and charged a Spring couple accused of keeping a 5-year-old boy malnourished inside the stairway closet of their home. Investigators said the child was found in his diaper in the small closet by his 16-year -old brother at 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Then the teen confronted his father Bradley Bleimeyer. The teen and father got into a fist fight and officers were called to the house located in the 21500 block of Castlemont. By the time officers arrived, they said the victim’s stepmother Tammi Bleimeyer and biological father took off with the little boy. On Friday,

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston Mayor Annise Parker married her long-time partner, Kathy Hubbard, in a California wedding Thursday. Eyewitness News was the only Houston television station in Palm Springs for the wedding, and Mayor Parker told us shortly after she tied the knot that her wedding was "lovely." "We had a beautiful day," Parker told us. The city of Houston says Parker and Hubbard were married before a small group of people Thursday on the 23rd anniversary of their relationship. Parker´s mother and Hubbard´s sister were on hand for the exchange of vows, which were presided over by the Reverend

The Pasadena Star news reports that a San Diego woman has called for the Rose Parade to be boycotted because it will feature a gay wedding atop a float. The float, sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), is titled, “Love is the Best Protection.” The parade will be watched by an estimated 68 million people around the world. San Diegan Karen Grube, who said her protest is not out of her religious convictions, and says she is opposed to having any wedding featured in the parade, has requested that corporate sponsors drop their funding of the parade if the

The Advocate reports that the Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal´s office will cancel food stamp benefits for anyone who participated in a fraud and shopping spree catalyzed by an EBT malfunction. More than 12,000 people were sent an insufficient funds notice when the problem with the EBT cards was fixed on Oct. 12; those who transgressed may lose their EBT cards for a year. Suzy Sonnier, the secretary of state at the Department of Children and Family Services, released a statement saying: "We must protect the program for those who receive and use their benefits appropriately according to the law.

Senator Marco Rubio began this year amid buzz that he was the logical choice to win the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. He is likely to finish it on a decidedly lower note, partly removed from the national spotlight, eclipsed by the rising star from Texas, Ted Cruz. Last week, attendees at the conservative Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., overwhelmingly chose Cruz as their preferred GOP candidate for 2016. The freshman senator blew away the competition with 42 percent of the vote. Rubio, meanwhile, placed fifth, behind Senator Rand Paul, political novice Dr. Ben Carson, and unsuccessful 2012 candidate

A billboard showing a tattooed Jesus Christ has stirred up quite a bit of buzz in the heart of the Bible Belt. The ad, which is the work of the website Jesustattoo.org, popped up along a West Lubbock, Texas, highway, and it’s got people talking. It shows a man, ostensibly Jesus Christ, with outstretched arms tattooed with such words as “Outcast,” “Addicted, “Jealous.” “I don’t like the picture. I think it’s very derogatory,” a local-area resident told the CBS affiliate KEYE-TV. On the website, a video casts Jesus as a tattoo artist and shows several tattooed individuals approaching him to

The Kolache: Czech, Texan or

HOUSTON — Morgan Weber grew up eating poppy-seed kolaches baked by his Czech grandmother, who honed her technique on a wood stove. Kolaches, soft pastries of yeasted dough with a divot in the center, traditionally filled with sweetened cheese or fruit, are a humble link to the Old World. But in the Revival Market in this city’s Heights neighborhood, Mr. Weber and his business partner, Ryan Pera, the market’s chef, serve sweet and savory pastries that are decidedly American: kolaches laden with satsuma oranges or filled with strawberries and ricotta cheese, and savory versions girded with house-made sausages poached in

The same sign is up at the McDonald’s at Westheimer and Kirkwood too. And hey, it looks like Happy Meals are $1.99 on Tuesdays now.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has warned that the Catholic Church´s moral structure might "fall like a house of cards" if it doesn´t balance its divisive rules about abortion, gays and contraception with the greater need to make the church a merciful, more welcoming place for all. Six months into his papacy, Francis set out his vision for the church and his priorities as pope in a remarkably lengthy and self-critical interview with La Civilta Cattolica, the Italian Jesuit magazine. It was published simultaneously Thursday in Jesuit journals in 16 countries, including America magazine in the U.S. In the

In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir of her time in the Obama Administration will be released on June 10, according to a website for the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Shuster, will cover key moments during her time as Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to early 2013. Clinton also shares her thoughts on how to “navigate the challenges of the 21st century,”according to the website. It will be her second memoir after 2003´s Living History. The publisher has not yet released a title or a design of the book’s sleeve, though its contents are highly anticipated in the period leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
