Karl Rove: Here Are the 2 Tactical Fails
That Cost Romney the Election

The Atlantic, by Garance Franke-Ruta

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 6/27/2013 5:20:55 PM

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.

Comments:
Karl Rove throwing Romney under the bus in hopes of solidifying his chances of being paid to lose another election. Its almost comical how this incestuous cabal of D.C. K Street consultant hookers are able to continue to find willing clients even after they have infected the entire city with political S.T.D.s.

Romney never had a chance. Stupid people vote for stupid politicians for free stuff. Until the republicans start to give away money faster than the democrats, they will continue to lose national elections. Of course, in 40 years, we won´t be having a country that with elections, so it is a moot point.

It was a rigged election when the IRS and NSA could listen to all of Romney´s phone messages and see every key stroke of his emails and pass it all along to their boss in the White House. Until these flying monkeys of the DNC are nutted there will never again be a fair election in what was once called America.

Between the free stuff handed out by the Øbunghole admin and the protestant evangelicals who refused to vote for a Mormon, Romney had no chance, unfortunately. People wouldnt have died in Benghazi, if we had elected Mitt.

What happened was that the street smart, corrupt, and dishonest Chicago political operatives who were running the Obama campaign fraudulently destroyed both Romney´s personal and professional reputations with casual voters before Romney ever got off his lounge chair and got on his campaign´s starting line. Then in a G.W. Bush and establishment Republican gentlemanly fashion Romney never fought back effectively. On top of that Romney is a Mormon and unfortunately there were a lot of Republican types who just would not vote for a Mormon and of course the Republicans won´t mention that factor.

Additionally you can´t win very many Hispanic votes when you have ignorant Republican politicians running around saying that Hispanics should be deported, or that they should self-deport, as Hispanics who are US citizens can vote. That was crazy, when all Romney had to say that the believed that the immigration laws should be effectively enforced, but of course he did not. If you were to ask Hispanic US citizens if they thought that the immigration laws should be effectively enforced most would say yes, but if you ask them if Hispanics should be deported or self-deport they would mostly say no. Then we observed the "binders full of women" exercise, what kind of baloney was that!

Of course Romney was running against the first black President, and with US racial politics being what they are, there was nothing that Romney could say or do as just about every black person was going to vote for Obama no matter what, no doubt some of them voted for Obama more then once in different polling places using different names.

Bottom line, Romney had no chance!

Instead of hearing an uplifting powerful speech from Sarah Palin, we were spoonfed Chris Christie. Then a parade of hispanics and blacks telling us that hard work pays off. (Like they would connect with that)..
Romney and Ryan fell flat.
Now go away Karl Rove.

Nixon refused to say anything when presented with evidence of voter fraud. However, Rove even having to tell Romney camp to be more aggressive in his defense is worse than pathetic. We out here in flyover country were screaming that every day.

I love the "stolen election" meme. If it was stolen, then it was Romney´s duty to contest it and fight on behalf of those who voted for him. If he had no stomach to fight for the sanctity of a citizens vote to be counted fairly, what the hell would have done if elected.

I believe that the true problem is with those who cannot face the reality that the man was a poor candidate who after essentially 8 years of running for president, massive amounts of campaign cash, and reportedly the best minds in the business consulting him, Romney and the Republican Establishment still couldn´t get it done.

Stolen election? No. More like thrown away. But I supposed granting ILLEGAL immigrants a free pass is somehow going to fix it.

Ask Karl.........

Karl, please let go. You´ve made your excuses and you´ve shown WP what you are and how you feel. Let It go. We realize it is over, and you and the other elites on the beltway have destroyed the goodness and greatness that was this country, formerly known as AMERICA. Zip your lip, sit down and think about what you have done...to yourself, your party, your country, and future generations of should have been Americans. Benjamin Franklin warned us about people like you...but teachers no longer teach that in schools today. The same almost outweighs the fury. But my rage is abundant. And it will do nothing but grow.

This is nonsense by Rove. If you have an election between two major party candidates, one of whom has done evey thing possible to penalize the hiring class and to spread the wealth, and the other
( Romney)who is ten times as qualified by both government and private industry executive experience, the vote of concerned Amercans should turn out it itself.

Query: if you havve a buck to protect, or have children or hrandchildren who have a buck to protect, why would you vote for a person who has ostentatiously promised you he will speread the bucks (wealth) around?

We were shafted by little old ladies who sat at home rather than vote for a Mormon, and Tea Partiers, who would have preferred idiots like Gingrich, Santorumn, or Ron Paul, all of whom had ostentatiously disqualified themselves.

I think a "turn out the vote" effort would be unnecesary under the circumstances I have described.

There are on;y two major parties. If you don´t vote for the party which most nearly represents your views, the other party will ( and did) win. And we will pay,and pay, and pay.

#19, your dimissing the "´stolen election´ meme" doesn´t make it any less true. And, all of this pretzel twisting on the part of establishment Republicans to figure out how we can win elections going forward will come to nothing if we cannot get a handle on democrat vote fraud. But, that is exactly what the dems are counting on, and we are being played like puppets on a string.

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah launched an “anti-cronyism” agenda Monday with a column in the National Review urging the Republican Party to advocate populist, free-market reforms over tax loopholes, government subsidies and federal bailouts. That kind of Republican party, he writes “could not only unify and excite conservatives, but appeal to hardworking families in the purple and blue communities that President [Barack] Obama’s special-interest favoritism is leaving behind.” Mr. Lee is scheduled to continue the rollout with television appearances, town halls, a speech at the Heritage Foundation on April 30, and several pieces of legislation.

Will the real Republican Establishment please stand up? In the four years since the Supreme Court struck down fundraising regulations that effectively gave the Democratic and Republican parties a monopoly on large-scale political activity, a collection of Tea Party-affiliated organizations has arisen in Washington that competes with the GOP for campaign contributors, money and influence -- and over what legislation to push and which candidates to nominate. The groups, including the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund, have moved aggressively to kill legislation they oppose and oust incumbent Republicans they deem insufficiently conservative.

An Arizona conservative congressman is shining light on how President Barack Obama is using $3 million of taxpayer money to teach National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) officials how to lobby Congress. In the first of a series of efforts targeting wasteful government spending, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) wrote to House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) last week to pressure him to include language banning the Obama administration from spending money on the program. The program, highlighted by outgoing Sen.

“To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws,” Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan said Wednesday, “it’s really a question of ‘when.’” Ryan, who was making the economic case for reforming our nation’s immigration system, was speaking at a breakfast hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Ryan called the nation’s immigration laws “chief” among the problems that are curbing economic growth. Noting the rate of retirement among baby boomers, Ryan said reforming the immigration system is necessary to fill future jobs. “Please know that we understand the value of immigration,” Ryan told the crowd. “We

A group of conservative House Republicans put a Medicare “doc fix” bill in mortal peril with their objections – but then acquiesced to a plan from GOP leadership to pass it without a vote. The vote was repeatedly delayed this morning as top Republicans scrambled to find the necessary votes for the legislation. Making the problem more difficult: the bill was brought to the floor under suspension of the rules, meaning it needed a 2/3 majority rather than the normal 1/2 majority. Huddling with leadership in an ornate room off the House floor, a group of GOP lawmakers who form

When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered? ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America. Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat.

Maine’s tea party governor, reared in poverty, is on a mission to reform the state’s welfare system. Gov. Paul LePage rolled out a four-proposal package on Monday that will get committee hearings in the legislature Tuesday afternoon. The reforms, which mostly tighten restrictions around the program, are part of an ongoing crusade against what LePage has described as a bloated program. “Big, expensive welfare programs riddled with fraud and abuse threaten our future,” he said in his state of the state speech last month. “Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not — and never will— create prosperity.”

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 new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
