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

Mediaite, by Eddie Scarry

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

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.

NOW he is a tough guy. Gee, Karl, the world could have used a little bit of that fight back during the Bush years. Then maybe Barney Frank and the Dem congress would have been tagged with their role in the financial meltdown. Instead YOU took the high road. YOU turned the other cheek and they all slide away like Andrew Cuomo. Nothing to answer for instead they got elected or retired wealthy.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general?

Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War.
