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.

Read Angelo Condevilla´s article in today´s Lucianne and you will know what I mean.

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?

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says.

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas.

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

CHICAGO -- Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it´s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison. The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn´t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught. On Feb.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
