Former Bush Adviser Continues
Crusade Against Palin, Conservatives

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 3/9/2013 6:44:54 AM

Former George W. Bush chief political strategist Matt Dowd continued to try to diminish Sarah Palin and conservatives by once again making false claims about the former Alaska governor. On Sunday´s "ABC´s This Week," Dowd assailed CPAC for, in his mind, lessening its credibility by inviting conservatives like Palin and not liberal Republicans favored by the northeastern elite like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. “CPAC, to me, has totally diminished its credibility as an organization,” Dowd said

Comments:
The Republican Establishment will have to be dragged away from Washington D.C. kicking and screaming, but they will be leaving. Whether or not the current establishment burns the Republican Party to the ground before they go is their choice. Palin, Cruz, and Paul are just the beginning.

Got Tea?

Matthew Dowd is not the only one justifiably criticizing some of the CPAC choices. Bringing in a flim-flammer such as Donald Trump diminishes the impact and credibility of the the whole conference.

Does Dowd know what the initials CPAC stand for?

CPAC is not the Repub party. It is a private organization that is CONSERVATIVE. It does not need to kiss up the Pubs.

Dowd seems to desire "BAU" (business as usual) to keep status quo in the Washington establishment. Sorry, Dowd, as McCain and Graham should have learned,the days of the good ol´ boys are coming to an end.

Palin will be the biggest rock star speaker at this convention and there´s little that the traitor Dowd can do about it. Christie´s situation is of his own making,you have to realize sucking up to Obama is a death knell among conservatives. Obama doesn´t deserve the benefit of the doubt on anything,he´s a cut through,incompetent commie.

#1 we both should buy Power Ball tickets today because I completely agree with you 100%. Donald Trump is nothing but a clown with a ridiculous comb-over dressed in a business suit. That being said, I think of John McCain the same though, but with less charisma.

Although I´m not a complete Palin devotee, I have to respect the fact that after all this time she continues to hit raw nerves, even in her recent quietude... Both Dowd and James Carville felt the need to take gratuitous shots at her on that ´´ABC´s This Week´´ last Sunday. And the ostensibly astute Dowd is somehow oblivious to the treachery of Christie´s self-serving Sandy hug of The Won as well as the truly bizarre nature of his Romney-less keynote at the RNC last summer.

These people don´t have credibility with anyone to start with. Did anyone see the seriously angry look from McCain when Rand was filibustering? He was with his buddy Obama at the time, I´m sure. How dare anyone go against the ruling elites in the GOP.

Here´s my prediction for the day - the GOP has learned nothing. Hillary will win next election. This country as we knew it is dead. And all their panties are in a wad over Palin? Disgusting.

Glad to read that the powerball posters are showing us again that their brand of Republicanism is the same as it was with Dole/McCain/Romney and who next: Bush, Christie? Not sure but what in the hearts of Brand Republicans is a huge desire for Hilary to change parties and carry their flag. There is a fear among the GOP about change even if it gave them and their children more freedom and a reform to our institutions. Strange is the moderate. What exactly do they have against Palin, Cruz, Rand Paul? Fear leads to hate as we see when Palin´s name is in the title of an article. The faith moderates have in Rove´s brand, Dowd´s opinions, and any of the other professional ´experts´ and advisors...is very very strange and shows a blind spot that may never be reasoned with. I don´t even know what Powerballs believe in that is so threatened by reform to our bloated government and changes in the power structure so cherished by Dems and Repubs alike. Corruption is in DC. Personally, I am tired of listening to the same lies over and over by the moderates. Sounds too much like the main stream media lies. If Dowd is the hero of the Repubs then tell us why.

Attention: People With Short Memories! Chris Christie’s speech at the Republican National Convention was promised to be the stem-winding, barn-burning oratory of the Century. Instead, he delivered a lackluster, disappointing yawner. His highly hyped performance didn’t even come close to delivering the goods. So, let’s stick with reality instead of some make-believe journey into the world of wishful thinking. Christie’s your basic, garden variety loose cannon.

Sarah Palin bespeaks Conservatism. She lives it. What I love and respect most about her is that she is everything Barack Hussein Obama isn’t, and then some. How’s THAT for a résumé!

conservatives and Tea Party types need to be clear that they will not vote for any more Doles, Bushes, McCains and Romneys. This is the leverage that they have that is undeniable.

If the repugs continue to ignore the base then a new party is needed. we will know when the budget deal is done this summer.

Why doesn´t Karl Rove´s organization, which is dedicated to electing liberal Republicans, hold its OWN CONFERENCE to showcase liberal Republicans, Chris Christie, for example, instead of blaming the CONSERVATIVE CPAC for not including liberal Republicans in its annual national forum?

Maybe because liberal Republicans like John McCain, Lindsay Graham, etc., have nothing to say except to either endorse Democratic policies or attack Conservative Republicans who DO have something to say, like Rand Paul.

In fact, every Sunday the team of McCain & Graham does its usual routine of Democratic endorsements and anti-Republican attacks on TV talkshows. Would any rational individual want to attend an entire convention to listen to four days of McCains and Grahams?

For good or for naught...Sarah Palin´s time has passed. I liked her because she was fearless in the face of the Establishment Republicans.

Establishment Republicans, who, by the way, were handed a big diss by the President this week probably during their oh-so-fancy dinner on Sunday. Did anyone else notice the Military Commissions/Tribunals have been disbanded. In your face, McCain and Miss Lindsey!

I was absolutely shocked to hear that dweeb had been a Bush adviser, after hearing his liberal garbage on ABC´s morning show for sometime. Who´d a thought?

He is an insecure fairy: he´ll spew some liberal/lefty talking point and then get this look on his face that he hopes the next speaker commenting on his statement approves, as if he´s about get witch-slapped(as he should). What a liberal pansy! Nooo credibility. If he ever got elbowed out of the way, he´d run off crying.

One of the best kept secrets of the last 60 years is slowly becoming widespread knowledge: the Republican party is NOT a party of conservatives. In addition to that, the "big tent" turned out to have no room for conservatives. Too many "Republicans" crowding the trough.

Time to move on and start a 3rd party.

Isn´t this guy the conservative brother that Maureen Dowd has talked about in the past? As to #8 and #9, CPAC is not for moderates or liberals. Time to recognize your heros for what they are and admit you don´t like Palin because she is actually a Christian conservative who stands behind her beliefs. Chris Christie revealed his beliefs by submarining Romney´s chances less than a week before the election.

Anyway, every convention needs a floor show, and this year it is Trump´s turn.

Dowd continues the progressive crusade against Sarah Palin and is "justified" as he assails CPAC even though they are a conservative organization NOT under the auspices of the Republican Party. Just wondering, for future references, does this behavior fall into the "circular firing squad" definition? Or, as I believe it to be, "Do as I say, not as I do." Well, get ready for more of this, as it is becoming clear that the lines have already been drawn. Conservatives will become verbally bolder as more of these people show their colors, and that will be a good thing in the long run. This country needs to hear an unadulterated conservative message.

This is silly. There were posters complaining the other day that CPAC is an organization for promoting liberal Republicans because Romney and Jeb Bush are speaking. There are plenty of conservative speakers attending. Ted Cruz was given the top speaking spot. Allen West, Mike Lee, Ken Cuccinelli, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Ben Carson, Tim Scott, and John Barrasso are featured speakers.

Why Donald Trump was included, other than for comic relief, I don´t know.

Rejected by the Republican Party, Federalist conservatives, a.k.a. Reaganites, worked, and I mean WORKED, their way into leadership of the Republican Party, making posssible the Reagan Revolution. If today´s Federalist conservatives don´t have the will to WORK their way into the same kind of leadership of the Republican Party, then they need to form a Conservative Party and take the ideological fight to the battlefield now shared by Democrats and Republicans.

You can always count on the Moderates to come out behind Lindsey´s dress when there is an article bashing Conservatives. The Moderates "big tent", which includes gay marriage and amnesty for illegals, does not have room for Conservatives. They love to shove their views in our face, thus the quaint "hi-5".

You´re defending Donald Trump as a conservative requiring protection from unidentified "moderates" on this thread, #33? Maybe a pair of glasses would help, because the high 5 was in agreement with #8´s view of the Trumpster. #16 misread the OP/8 and 9´s comments, too, all directed at Donald Trump.

Republicans (establishment old horses) have indeed learned nothing. They are tearing the party apart and are so out-of-touch with the people of this country and the US Constitution. They have done nothing and are useless. They are a reflection of obambie and following in his pathetic footsteps. There is no real opposition to obambie and the establishment GOP actually has distain for their own constituency...look at the spectical McCain. He is an absolute disgrace as a conservative. Maybe he can go cry on obambie´s shoulders at their next dinner party.

Well, I´m impressed! Just about 25% of the posters on this thread are apparently avid Donald Trump fans. I come to that conclusion because that number believe he is somehow being dissed by a comment about Powerball and a high five. One poster even assumes some L-Dotters are supporters of gay marriage and illegal immigration because of their lack of love for The Donald.
Sarah Palin suffered not a single sling nor arrow, but the defenders rose up anyway. Well done, Sarah Palin.

Sarah is absolutely not finished with America, nor are we with her.
McCain and Graham are missing the boat, and will be left at the dock. They are too close to the actors in Washington, and business as usual. They see only variations of past bipartisan BS, not the real existential threat by the commienazis to RUIN the country for spite, and their elitist masters.
I don´t know about you, but it seems the mist is lifting, and the battle positions are becoming clear. Obama is readying for a civil war against all resistance.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love that picture from the Bundy Ranch. You know the one that I’m talking about: I’m talking about all of them.

And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power.

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

"Sometimes, when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head," the announcer says as clips flash on-screen of John Boehner laughing with President Obama, John Boehner on the golf course with Obama, and John Boehner smiling while giving Obama a glowing "thumbs up" at the State of the Union address. The ad - titled "When the Moment is Right" - is a spoof of Cialis commercials which air during 60 Minutes

Paul and Bush Duke It Out
on Immigration

Presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Jeb Bush got in a slight scuffle over immigration yesterday. Bush called illegal immigration “an act of love” committed by people wanting to support their families, adding that most of them are here illegally because they can’t get in legally. This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were

Republicans are famously divided on immigration reform, but Democrats pretty much unanimously support it. There´s a reason for that. In stark, partisan political terms, continuing the high level of immigration of recent decades, and certainly increasing immigration as envisioned by many reformers, will result in more Democrats winning more elections in coming years

GOP Needs to Pledge to Clean
Up Washington´s Sleazy Culture

There is a culture of sleaze in Washington that´s worse than ever. Too-big, all-powerful government not only cripples the freedoms of the regular people who have to live under it, it also creates a whole shadow infrastructure dedicated to working it to the advantage of the elite and the connected. Three recent stories illustrate the point: Matt Continetti´s piece about the divorce of lobbyists Tony and Heather Podesta shows how connected insiders can make out like bandits in Obama´s Washington. The Podestas have offered their vast and wealthy clients little in the way of objective value. Rather, they´ve gotten rich just

By now most people are familiar with the potentially deadly situation emerging at the Bundy ranch in Nevada. Right now, the back-story is not nearly as important as the immediate necessity to de-escalate this life-and liberty threatening situation, although it does play an important role and must be addressed. The fact that this situation could have been pulled from the script of the 1974 movie Chinatown or any of the Godfather movies is well known and must be exposed, but not before immediate action is taken to assure the preservation of life and liberty. The current critical nature of the crisis cannot

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

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. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
