How Karl Rove went from GOP
mastermind to the right´s
political punching bag

The Week, by Jon Terbush

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 12/25/2013 9:23:24 AM

A decade ago, Karl Rove was President George W. Bush´s right-hand man and one of the most powerful political figures in America. And even after his fortunes briefly dipped at the end of the Bush era, Rove roared to life again, tapping into and fueling the Tea Party movement through his massive super PAC, American Crossroads. But today, with a GOP civil war raging between establishment types and upstart conservatives in the mold of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R), Rove´s once-strong influence has begun to wane. An embodiment of the Bush-era Republicans who have fallen out of favor of late, Rove, too, has begun to come

Comments:
Time to flush "T. Blossom"! Rove and the rest of the Republican Establishment have been exposed. Collecting money from this man will most likely cost you more votes than that money will buy. 300 Million spent and only 16.7% of Rove and Republican Establishment backed candidates won.

No matter how many times the Rovites drag out Mrs. O´Donnel, the fact is that the Tea Party and their candidates were far more successful with just a fraction of the money spent.

Got Tea?

FTA: Rove´s super PAC went dormant this year because of "an unexpected dearth of funds."

Thank you, OP. This definitely brightened my morning to learn that Rove had a success rate of 16.7% after spending $300 million! Similar to the way his kind runs government when they are in charge of the big show.

Merry Christmas!

Is this writer accurate when he says Rove capitalized on the tea party movement? I don´t remember that.

I just remember Rove/43 ever increasing spending, Medicare part D - similar to today´s Immigration/Amnesty debate, not defending the President and his policies from attack, not pardoning Scooter Libby, and TARP in the baseline budget on his way out the door. Not a good advisor to his boss. If these really were GWB policies and not Rove´s, he should have quit.

I don´ share the enmity many feel toward Rove but I have always questioned his approach to political campaigns. He seems to see politics as a pie with a fixed number of potential voter that merely have to be identified. He doesn´t seem to understand the importance of messaging in increasing the size of that pie. Or that effective messaging if crucial importance given the increasingly partisan nature of the media.

Hmmmm . . . it occurs to me that the political parties consider "winning" much like a winning a football or baseball game for their parties´ sake. A novel idea for me would be how about winning one for the sake if the country. I would think that O´Donnell would have been a better person than Coons, same way with Angle. Surely she would be a better person than Harry Reid. Are you kidding me? I´m very sure Mourdock would have been better than Reid´s rubber stamp we now have in Joe Donelly. Rove and company didn´t even try, in fact he was desparaging to these candidates all through the process. Mourdock could have won!

Rove is the face of the current GOP whose support comes from assorted big business crony capitalist types such as the Insurance Industry; as well as the the auto and banking industries who were bailed out by buffoon Bush. The GOP has always been but an errand boy for corporate interests and their K Street hustlers. It´s all about their subsidies and tax breaks. It´s never been about the average voter or the R rank and file. And most emphatically, traditional conservative principle has no place in either the actions and thoughts of these frauds.

The Rove crowd is part of sabotage Republicans who are active all over winning elections for the radical left. For example, angry Rockefeller Republican former Senator John Danforth has made a side career sabotaging the GOP in the NY Times and in person in his home state of Missouri. At least twice Danforth has inserted himself in GOP races in Missouri in which he thought GOP candidates were just too weak, and he wanted to add an additional candidate. Danforth dramatically did this in the middle of the 2012 GOP primary race in Missouri in which Todd Akin, Sarah Steelman, and John Brunner were running. Two weeks went by as Missouri voters waited to see if Danforth´s candidate was going to enter the race. The voting public had no choice but to assume the three existing GOP candidates must be complete losers. Danforth´s candidate ended up not entering the race. Who would want to be a GOP candidate if this is the way the party operates? Akin ended up winning the primary which was before he made his rape remarks. The point is Danforth had weakened all 3 GOP candidates and made the GOP itself look like a joke.

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. I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. 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. Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform. Then one bright day, a fruit stand

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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'

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.

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall.
