Much Ado About Rove
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/22/2013 5:47:19 AM

In the aftermath of their presidential election defeat, many Republicans took out their frustration on Mitt Romney and his staff. Their manifold shortcomings and mistakes, both in terms of judgment and technical gaffes, were raked over with consummate thoroughness by conservative commentators. But with Romney sensibly gone to ground (though he will break his silence this month at the annual CPAC conference) and his advisors making poor targets on their own, that got boring after a while. So with the people who determined the GOP fate in 2012 no longer such inviting targets, the spleen of some conservatives

It really isn´t all about Karl Rove. It´s about Rove and his PAC and the Big Money behind a concerted effort to support so-called ´moderate´ Republican candidates. It´s about wiping out the Tea Party influence that got Rubio, Cruz and Paul elected. It isn´t about returning to grassroots conservative values. It is about shifting political power from one Party to another.

#1, why isn´t Karl Rove as entitled to raise money and support candidates as anyone else? Those who don´t want his guidance are free to send money to any other PAC? I´m pretty sure that if Sarah Palin opted to use her formidable PAC funds to actually support political candidates, it would be fine with her fans. There are many PACs out there. Choose one you like instead of declaring Karl Rove has no place in the political fundraising arena.

Republicans and conservatives can sit around handwringing and finger pointing to the cows come home but nothings going to change unless they figure ot how to stop election fraud,especially in swing states.

They also have to figure out how to reach and motivate millions of voters who don´t bother to vote.One of the reasons for this is a lot of non voters don´t see a difference in the parties. The right knuckling under to immigration is the latest example.This started with Bush´s push on immigration,we´ve been going downhill ever since.

There is a big difference between a PAC supporting their preferred candidate and a PAC trying to influence the nomination process in order to eliminate potential candidates. One is a legitimate part of the election process, the other is kingmaking.

Amusing. These articles in defense of Rove are sweet. Anyone with half a brain can read between the lines.

Rove and his backers chose unwisely. They mucked things up, they exposed themselves as more interested in power and position than principle. They relentlessly attacked conservatives within their own party, and now they are crying foul. Tough. Stop whining. Go to a cocktail party and don´t let the door slam on your way out.

I believe the only ones "whining" are the ones who seem to fear Karl Rove. Man up and realize that the act of supporting a particular candidate means other candidates are being voted against. It´s the way primaries work. I assume all of us are free to go with the one we prefer. I won´t demand those I don´t prefer not be allowed to participate.

I despise this man. He thinks he´s so smart. He might be but he´s also clueless about his fellow Republicans. If he chooses another candidate in 2016 - I won´t vote. Period. Well unless the Tea Party runs someone. But no one will win against the current system the Democrats have set up. They´ve brought election stealing to an art form.

What #2 said. IMO, If the GOP has gotten to the point of bashing anyone for raising millions of dollars to elect Republicans, there is no hope. Karl Rove DID donate from his PAC to Rubio AND Cruz and many other "tea-party" endorsed Conservatives. It´s time to stop allowing the "msm" to play the GOP like a pathetic violin and tell US who is good and who is NOT good in the GOP. "Karl Rove "frog-marched out of the W.H. in handcuffs". Anyone remember that line? Good grief!

WHY can´t we learn to focus on what UNITES us, rather than our differences? Why turn our backs on each other, when we´re our own closest allies? We´ll never be successful unless we consider saving our PARTY just as important as saving our COUNTRY. I´m not a Rove fan, but have we really become so rigid that we can´t tolerate differing views? Don´t we trust our fellow Republicans to make their own good judgments?
As long as we continue to view fellow Republicans as enemies the Demos can just sit back and laugh as we continue to self-destruct. Why any conservative would want to satisfy the Demos, the libs or the media is beyond me.

I watched Karl Rove on Hannity´s show Wednesday night. He tried to sound reasonable. I have no problem with him wasting another three hundred million like he did in 2012 if there are enough fools to trust him with their money.
Karl was the one who came out of the box declaring war on the Tea Party. That doesn´t build co-operation among groups who may want to support GOP candidates. Karl is a has been politically that has no other skill to keep him out of trouble.

Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch should get some credit. Fox News gives the Ruling Class GOP the canons to silence ordinary Americans. As Mr. Codevilla explains, the main point uniting the Ruling Class (which includes both R and D) is a deep disdain for ordinary Americans. This motivates Rove,the Bush crowd, Beltway GOP in general. Big Time. It isn´t principle because they have none. It´s not accurate to say any of us could compete with Rove. The Ruling Class has staged a successful revolution in the US. As Codevilla says, the majority of Americans who identify as R are orphaned, have no political party to represent them and their views. Rove is part of a larger point.

FTA: "But those reviling and writing off Rove need to get a better grip on reality"

Oh, really? I think that it´s YOU and others in the Rockefeller wing of the party that need to get a grip on reality, as you currently have no such grip.

The next election cycle will go a long way in pointing out to the Rockefellers, that the Tafts no longer look to them, nor will they adhere to their big government philosophy, which runs counter to conservatism. Yes, the GOP will lose badly, without conservatives voting for their worthless candidates.

People like Rove, miscreants who gain fleeting popularity, yet command a disproportionate amount of influence, are the kinds of people who take a good thing, and turn it to garbage that no one wants anymore.

It´s all about ratings and readers so entire segments of our so called right wingers have morphed into Joe Scarborough types.

A pox on both their houses. That way they believe they can entice more listeners and/or readers.

Well, a pox on those on the right who tear down our party and don´t care if they jeopardise our troops, our economy and the next USSC nominee.

It´s all in the numbers folks. They have more we lose. No committee chair, no gavel, no power at all.

No it really isn´t about Rove; it is about the audacity of certain people to think they know what is best for ´we the people´. If you don´t believe that, here is my prediction. Jeb Bush has already been the chosen presidential candidate by the ruling class. This is all a set up for that point in time. Rove and others are guiding us to that end. If that is the result, many more Republicans will not turn out to vote, since we don´t need another mushy Bush. As far as loving their family, I think they are wonderful people; but we need a leader with better ideas than any of them have or will have.

Mr. Rove adheres to a double standard. If his candidate wins the primary, he expects and most of us do support that candidate. If the candidate he did not support wins the primary, we expect, and rightly so, him to also support that candidate. However, he doesn´t and funds are held back from that campaign. It´s his guy or nobody. That´s not the way it should work. If we have to hold our nose to vote for his candidate why shouldn´t he support ours?

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk.

It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being.
