Rove: ‘Shame on Conservatives and
Republicans’ Fueling Impeachment Talk

Mediaite, by Eddie Scarry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/30/2014 12:30:37 PM

Karl Rove, former adviser to president George W. Bush, unleashed on Republicans and conservatives Tuesday who he says “helped” Democrats and the White House by calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has denied that he would seek impeachment. GOP House Majority Leader

Comments:
Shame on Rove for always attacking conservatives in the party instead of the lawless, corrupt, destructive Barack Hussein Obama!!

The nice thing about Rove and the other pundits (never mind who they are) is that we don´t have to agree with them. We don´t even have to listen to them.

We have our own minds. Use them. Read and listen and draw your own conclusions. Don´t ever let ANY so-called pundit do your thinking for you.

´Bye, Karl...

As Rush is saying, conservatives and republicans are doing no such thing.

The media are setting this up so that no matter what our lawless president does, republicans will get the blame.

He´s right that there is no more journalism, only political advocacy masquerading as news.

Exactly right to above posters. Good advice #1. We need to be calm, not let Rove bother us one bit. We know he is the mouthpiece for the GOP blob that serves
the crony capitalists that keep him in six figures and a big house.

Oh shut up Karl. Considering Obama´s many unconstitutional acts it´s only natural folks would bring it up. Obama is the poster child for why our Founders made sure we had this remedy.

That being said, Republicans are not going to impeach him and this is just a diversion (which by the way your big mouth is contributing to). Unfortunately considering how lame our Republican leadership is they will roll over and let the Dems control the narrative.

Response from all Republicans should be:
Although Obama has committed numerous unlawful acts such as Obamacare law changes, not enforcing the border laws, etc. and shows much cause to be impeached, at this time Republicans have to go to work to protect the American People from illegal aliens, and must focus on the economy.

Well, one very prominent and, at least by some on this forum, much-loved political celebrity has made a very big deal out of demanding impeachment. I assume that person doesn´t fit either "republican" or "conservative" in Limbaugh´s estimation?

Rove is the political consultant´s version of a two dollar whore. Looking for the easy mark, the "smart" come on. It should be to our everlasting shame that such persons have influence and a rapt audience.
We can disagree as to whether a serious effort to impeach and remove Obama is the "smart" move. But there is no doubt whatever that it is what his actions merit. Or that even a tiny sense of duty DEMANDS.
We have failed our ancestors and our progeny as well, and have sold our noble birthright for toxic pottage. All to appear "smart". May the Lord forgive us.

Karl Rove, cashing in on his celebrity status. He is far more entertaining than she will ever be. The second tier hacks who breathlessly wait for what he says are no less comical. Quick quiz: what did Karl Rove ever win? What does he stand for? What principles will he encourage others to advance? He raises money by bashing conservatives, has raised negative ops to an art form, at campaign time, overspends by buying adtime on conservative outlets, which make him money but get no additional votes. This man is a fraud.

Karl, honey, you need a new press aide. Let me help you.

"All of us know that this President has accumulated an unprecedented record of lawlessness. Only the most brazen partisans in Congress and the media deny it. We deplore and denounce this President´s abandonment of our best allies, and his efforts to aide those who want only to destabilize the world order in his quest to replace our free market-driven economy and traditional moral liberties with a divisive, dangerous brand of Marxism.

But we also face acute threats to our national sovereignty, including the crisis at our southern border and the loss of international influence in keeping peace through strength. So while all patriotic Americans agree that Mr. Obama deserves to be impeached and removed from office, we should now agree to put all of our energy into saving our nation from further damage, and try to undo the damage already done by this feckless, reckless president, and put aside impeachment efforts until we have secured our border and humanely sent illegal immigrants home. But let us be clear, Mr. President, that if you persist in your denigration of our Constitution, we most certainly will pursue all options, including lawsuits and impeachment. We the people deserve justice and we will serve it to you when the time is right."

No charge for my service, Karl, but I´ll take a glass of tea when you´re through.

Always Wrong Rove, the Dick Morris wannabe, is no conservative and never has been. He´s a college dropout that snagged a big deal with GWB, and gave him bad advice all eight years, taking tremendous popularity and squandering it. I use Rove as a reverse barometer - talking impeachment is what will make people vote R -even the democrats I know think Obama is a failure. He does not have the support Bill Clinton had, and the fallout would be not be like in 1998.

We are supposed to be ashamed for being run over, mugged, and robbed by the Obama administration? Rove counsels doing nothing. Boehner says no to using his power, and counsels doing nothing.

Thinking out loud about having Obama thrown from office in ignominy is anything but shameful. Many of us have concluded that a character who does just about everything wrong is erring deliberately, and should be despised. Tokyo Rove´s use of "shame" in referring to overeager Republicans is shameful on his part, clear evidence that he has little use for the party´s base. Typical RINO.

The fact that FNC keeps putting him in front of its audience convinces me that it´s time for free marketeers with sufficient wealth to buy one of the Big Three networks, totally clean house, and provide Fox with a real competitor, for once in our lifetimes.

Obama more than deserves to pitched face first from the residence at 1600 PA, but let´s keep our powder dry, win big in the November elections, and see what the new composition of Congress will be. Any moves to remove Obama from office must have significant Democrat support. It´s possible that Obama might screw up so badly (or so deliberately) in the next thirty months that his own Party will want nothing further to do with him. A truly bipartisan impeachment movement, as unlikely as it might be, would kill his soul.

Morally, Gov. Palin is right, and the predictable sniping at her from certain of us is petulant and unbecoming. Strategically, she isn´t right this time, although I can forgive this great American for occasionally favoring policies that will backfire and invigorate the opposition.

President Obama began outlining a sweeping and long-term strategy Wednesday night for combatting the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, launching what could be the biggest counterterrorism campaign of his presidency. “Tonight, I want to speak to you about what the United States will do with our friends and allies to degrade, and ultimately destroy, the terrorist group known as ISIL,” Obama said in a prime-time speech delivered from the White House. According to prepared remarks, Obama said the offensive against the militant group will not involve combat troops but a “steady, relentless effort” through

In this hyperpartisan age, there is one point of agreement between Republicans and Democrats on foreign policy--that is, in addition to the newfound conviction that Congress need not exercise its constitutional authority over war: namely, that there shall be no "boots on the ground in Iraq." It is a view requiring immediate clarification: there may be more U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq, but no combat troops will be sent. President Barack Obama offered that reassurance in his addresses to the nation. His former rival, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said the same in an interview with the BBC on Hard Talk this

For the 2008 Presidential GOP convention I was asked to narrate more than 80 percent of the videos shown over those few days. The 9/11 tribute video was something I especially wanted to do. For me, the most important issue of our 21st century is the War on Terror, specifically from that which it is engendered, radical Islam. While, of course, both conventions that year had their partisan speeches and differences, at least the nation would be united on the 9/11 tribute. I was wrong. Instead of a unanimous, heartfelt response, some on the left began to vehemently criticize and politicize the tribute.

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign. [Snip] The "comprehensive strategy," as described by one White House official, will involve "US military action and support for the forces combating ISIL [Islamic State] on the ground–both the opposition in Syria and a new, inclusive Iraqi government."

As we suspected, President Obama tried in his Wednesday-night speech to make it sound like he was doing something new when he, in fact, he is not. Moreover, in describing his response, he made plain that he doesn’t take the threat to the homeland seriously. For a threat his advisers say is greater than that posed by al-Qaeda after 2001, he proposed measures suitable for Yemen and Somalia. No, really — that’s the plan. For starters, the president doesn’t believe the Islamic State is a current threat to the U.S.: “So ISIL poses a threat to the people of Iraq

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat.

And this is why you will always eventually regret voting for somebody who boasted of all the coke and dope he did while smoldering about his absentee father.President Choom Gang has demilitarized our military.

And now he wants to deploy American troops into West Africa to combat the Ebola virus. Boy, is this confusing. Mr. President, with all due respect: Are you still smoking dope? Just when

A new report from NBC claims that President Obama couldn´t get a tee time during a recent visit to New York.

He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion. "No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of [the Islamic State´s] victims

Tonight, exactly one year after Barack Obama strode to a microphone in the East Room of the White House to make a prime-time televised address to the nation on "what to do about Syria", the US president is preparing once again to do…just that. Even by the tortured standards of Mr Obama, the 2013 address was a truly dismal affair in which the President could be heard arguing with himself over his own non-response to the Assad regime´s use of chemical weapons.
