Tea Party Groups Attack Rove Machine
Big Government (Breitbart News), by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/10/2013 7:50:30 AM

With Karl Rove under heavy fire after his group, the Conservative Victory Project, took to the pages of the New York Times to attack the Tea Party, donors are beginning to turn on the Project. Politico reports Friday morning that the Project will “essentially preform oppo research and grade potential candidates on a variety of factors that might affect their ability to win a general election contest.” Some donors are overjoyed at the opportunity, including media honcho Stan Hubbard and Fred Malek of the American Action Network. But others don’t trust Rove and the American Crossroads

The number of the day:
94.3% = The amount of money Karl Rove and American Crossroads wasted on losing candidates. Most of which are they very same candidates they now propose to be looking for in the next election cycle.

Got Tea?

"others don´t trust Rove" - how about I don´t trust ANY of them on EITHER side of the aisle!! They are out for themselves and their futures knowing they can steal from the taxpayer to fund their lifestyle, their power hunt and their futures. I say get them ALL out of office and start with a clean slate.

Sigh. I read this morning that the Tea Party Patriots said it was unfair for Karl Rove´s group to "fund candidates using money".

Anyone see a flaw in that comment?

Looks like Karl needs to get online and fill out his Social Security App. The Conservatives who remember Reagan Landslides are getting tired of hanging chad elections and close losses to radical leftist. Whatever Karl and the political "know it all´s" in the party are selling it ain´t working. Maybe a little unapologetic Conservationism should be tried.

I think I´ll market a new fitness product and call it the " Rove Machine". It costs a lot of money, guarantees that you´ll be in the best shape possible and you never notice that it´s still stuck in the corner of the room.
It will however be useful for drying sweaters.And you´re going to need sweaters.

First point: Karl Rove doesn´t pick winners either. Rove didn´t just think Mitt Romney would win; he thought he did win, and was the second-to-last guy to figure it out on election night. Romney sitting in a hotel room with his acceptance speech watching all the warning signs he´d ignored for weeks becoming reality is sad. Rove actively arguing against reality on live TV is scary. Second point: Where do you think all that opposition research that Rove is funding to pre-qualify our candidates is going to end up? Perhaps the most distasteful aspect of Mitt Romney´s GOP primary campaign was the relentless and dishonest use of opposition research to attack fellow Republicans via the liberal press. Victory by Oppo Drop is an ugly way to win that divides the party and does nothing to prepare the winner to articulate and defend conservative ideas in the general. Karl Rove may not care about that, but I do, and I do not trust his judgement.

A lot of cliches come to mind, like, "Don´t air your dirty laundry." I, for one, am sick andtred of hearing the complaints, small and large, groused about so loudly... seems like a lot of big egos

Then there´s the maxim: "A house divided against itself can not stand." You will note that there is no dissension among the Dem/lefties. They have done a very good Leninist-type job of crushing intra-Party dissent with an "iron fist," eradicating "factionalism."

Unless the Opposition entities --conservatives, TEA Partiers, Repubs et al-- find a way to unite on core principles, instead of flailing about like a herd of cats, the Opposition will flounder and fail.

And with every election, we are further down the precipitous path to the destruction of our Constitutional Republic.

This problem is very serious. Time is running out, 2014 is already here. Remember Franklin´s (pre-)Revolutionary flag with the severed snake: "Unite, or die!"

Let´s be honest, the tea party was cutting into Rove´s money making scam of being a campaign guru. If the tea party paid Rove to choreograph tea party campaigns (and bask in his wisdom) Carl would very quickly change his tune. It´s all about money, most specificaly, Carl´s money.

There is a rising chorus on the left, most recently articulated in an op-ed by Neera Tanden and Michael Linden (“Deficits are not destiny”) of the Center for American Progress, that our fiscal conversation should be declared over and plans for meaningful entitlement reforms mothballed. These voices argue that we can have substantial new spending on public investments, a secure safety net, no middle-class tax increase — all without addressing entitlement spending. Lo, if it were so. But the left’s reasoning is predicated on four fiscal fantasies that Democrats must see through

Former U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett stood Friday before a group and gleefully proclaimed that, because he will never again appear on a ballot, he can say anything he wants. Then he did. The Utah Republican was the invited guest luncheon speaker at The Leonardo in Salt Lake City during the annual conference of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. He knew he was speaking to a few dozen folks who earn a living making fun of politicians like him. And he knew he was going to be quoted.

“The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It is understanding. We are swimming in the former. We are desperately lacking in the latter.” ? Malcolm Gladwell, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking The Republican Party’s senior operatives publicly are committing the cardinal sin of promising to spend tens of millions of dollars of its most generous donors’ money to lard up on data: knowledge. What, instead, is required — to restore its ability to make good, winning, decisions — is virtue: understanding. This critical distinction appears lost on the politicos.

On Sunday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin denounced the Senate´s immigration bill in an exclusive opinion piece for Breitbart News. One week before that, though, Palin laid out a promise and a warning to her own party in a speech to the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C. She said Americans do not deserve the exceptional country its founding fathers left them if they do not keep faith with the working class. And she said that that faith would be lost if the the Gang of Eight´s bill, passed by the Senate on Thursday, became law. Her words are especially important as

A lot has been said about why Mitt Romney lost the presidential election, from his failure to turn out more white working-class voters to his failure to win more of the Latino voters who did turn out. Republican strategist Karl Rove offered the latest take Thursday in remarks detailing how he tried, from his perch at an outside group forbidden by law from coordinating with the campaign, to signal to Romney´s team that they should make changes in course and defend their candidate more fiercely.

The Gang of Eight's so-called "immigration overhaul" is pretty much dead on arrival in the House, but that isn't stopping Senators Marco Rubio and Kelly Ayotte from voting for it. But apparently, the House not taking up the bill isn't all these two, and maybe other Republicans, have to worry about. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is calling for both to be primaried. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has the most influence among conservative voters in Republican primaries, told Breitbart News on Tuesday that Sens.

On Monday, GOP political commentator Karl Rove sharply criticized a recent Breitbart News article on new language in the Senate amnesty bill. Appearing on FoxNews to defend the bill´s security provisions, Rove singled out a Breitbart story which appeared Friday as "simply not true." Rove´s criticism, however, was factually incorrect. The article Rove attacked, detailed a new provision in the then-Corker-Hoeven amendment which would allow immigrants on work visas who overstayed their visas to still apply for a green card. In other words, breaking immigration law in the future would not prevent

Is there anyone remaining with an IQ above room temperature who actually believes that the Republican Party believes in limited government, as defined by the U.S. constitution? If so, they have either been hibernating or have been in complete self-denial. Every election cycle the Republican Party counts on its “conservative base” to dutifully turn out and mark their ballot for whatever candidate has been selected by the GOP leadership. We are told ad infinitum that doing so will keep the Democrat liberal demons from furthering their agenda. The inside-the-beltway establishment has been chanting this mantra for years

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.

Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster.

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.

Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.
