Why Karl Rove and the GOP
Establishment Will Lose Again

American Thinker, by C. Edmund Wright

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/29/2014 8:12:45 AM

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina. This is not merely snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- this is snatching defeat from the bowels of victory -- in astonishing tone-deaf fashion. There is absolutely no excuse for not winning these two races. So how is the one-time “boy genius” doing this? By running ads attacking Senators Mark Pryor and Kay Hagan from the left. Yes, you heard that right. Rove’s Crossroads GPS PAC is insisting in their latest

Karl Rove reportedly raised millions and millions of dollars last election cycle. Where is all that money? Where are the results? He is not the architect or the brain. He was lucky to be paired with the rich connected famous son of a rich connected famous president. How hard could it have been really to engineer the election of W especially against the childish and wooden Gore?

I believe the point is why worry about anything Karl Rove might do or say or finance if we´re all supposed to vote for the Democrats anyway. Rove is pretty immaterial under those circumstances.

Tillis was the front-runner in the NC primary for the entire campaign, but still had to go through that process. In the meantime Hagan has been running ads against him all year, accusing him of gutting education and medicare and all the other tried-and-true Democrat talking points. (Tillis is currently speaker of the house in the NC legislature. The Dems have proposed a host of ridiculous items this year that had no chance of passing, just to create fodder for Hagan. For example, the $500 million "cut" to education that Hagan constantly harps on - the truth is that the education budget actually increased, but by $500 mil less than the Dems asked for.) The bottom line is that Hagan had the first opportunity to define Tillis (most voters couldn´t name anyone in state government beyond the governor)and he is now having to unpaint the image she portrayed of him. Plus, Hagan has tons of money at her disposal.

To correct # 6´s lies. I do not advocate voting for dems except for the US Senate. Remember the "establishment" CoC backed RINO´s won all the senate primaries because WAR was declared on conservatives by mitch mcConnell (the man to replace dingy harry). It makes no sense for a conservative to vote for mitch mcConnell.

At least with dingy harry and a R House their agenda is stymied. Does anyone here really think mitch will send bills to obama that face a sure veto, thus a gov shutdown. Remember mitch has already promised he will not allow another shutdown.

If/when the "establishment" continues to abuse it´s conservative base the longer they will continue to lose. You need us more than we need you, we have already seen what the CoC establishment promotes and it is not the conservative agenda thus I will not support the backstabbers again.

Oh come on do the ads really say that Cotton and Tillis would make better liberals than Hagan and Pryor? That´s out there. It might be a democrat tactic to attack those who want to diminish social program eligibility but if it works against democrats, run with it.

´ disagree with the article´s premise to use different tactics in different races is bad idea: It is ok to be adaptive to the individual races. After all these are midterms not presidential elections. Most citizens won´t know what issues are being fought over in other states anyway.

FTA: Rove made a point to personally insult my book at a GOP convention in Charlotte in 2013, calling it a “poorly researched piece of trash.”

Rove can´t handle the truth. Wright´s book "W*F? How Karl Rove and the Establishment Lost...Again" skewers the establishment Republicans, who he shortened to GOPe, I hope Wright doesn´t mind if we use that here.

From Wright´s book: The subject of Obama’s awfulness was not what the establishment wanted because Mitt’s not very good at that subject. The arrogant and controlling establishment was telling us to shut up, sit down, and listen to our bettors – and everything would work out just fine. In this way, the GOP establishment is similar to very thing we fight against in the Federal government, the arrogant controlling assumption that the elites know what we really need...They flaunt a faux bipartisanship to gain Washington credibility by trashing other Republicans, especially conservative ones.

Wright speaks the absolute truth and if we don´t follow his advice we will lose once again.

"Conservatives´ are stiff-necked and filled with pride to the point that they are the reason will lose again.

Those who will not see the centrist light and will threaten my way or the highway could give us a Clinton presidency--but then as religious folks we all might know it must be God´s will?

Our choice to freely make but His to use us all to His purposes? What part will we play And who will blame whom? Most everyone but the only ones they can control, themselves?

Ditto those who say this is a must Must Read.

C. Edmund Wright said very clearly and succinctly what many of us have been thinking and saying in one way or another for some time.

I know this much. If Republicans adopt liberal policies - if voters with deeply held moral, conservative values are not given a choice of standing for those moral and conservative values at the ballot box - many will not vote. It has nothing to do with animus toward any particular person. It has to do with deliberately supporting something God has condemned. That would mean moving beyond supporting the lesser of two evils to supporting evil. No amount of chiding or rationalizing the "temporary" selling of one´s soul to the devil in order to achieve an immediate purpose will change that. We are at the point of ´choose you this day´.

While there is apparently no love lost between Mr. Wright and Mr. Rove, the article cuts Karl too much slack.

It is more than a matter of tactics vs strategy. It is a matter of allegiance. There are (at least) three distinct interest groups in America:
1) Investors, corporatists, and globalists - the Wall Street types that back the GOPe;
2) The Democrat constituents of dependants, illegal immigrants, labor unions, over the hill sixties hippies and their modern day recruits, and media lackeys;
3) Main street blue collar, first level white collar, and independent small business types who work hard, try to follow the rules, and struggle to get by and provide a future for their families. (aka: the "screwees")

While there is overlap (picture a Venn diagram) the three are distinct. Immigration is one issue that separates them.

Unfortunately for now, there is no political party that represents the third group. Perot´s effort exposed the vacuum (until the aliens landed on Ross´ lawn). The Tea Party movement gained momentum and traction in 2010, but has been co-opted (I believe deliberately) by Agenda 21 and similar issues, and by obsession with 501(c)(3) status. What is needed is a formal, organized political party to represent it.

I believe that the GOP is on the same path that led the Whigs into oblivion. The denial the Rove displayed on FNC the evening of 11/6/12, when he challenged Chris Stirewalt´s call of the Ohio results, highlighted that.

# 24 an exercise to help you out.
1). Retrive (get) a sheet of paper from your printer.
2). Place it landscape (long side down) in front of you
3). Draw a small circle (trace a dime if you need to) on each end of the paper
4). Using a straight edge (ruler) draw a line between the two circles
5). Repeat until you can "connect the dots" mentally.

On September 12, 2014 Breitbart posted an infuriating report, “Facebook’s Marc Andreessen: Jeff Sessions ‘Clinically Insane’ for Supporting U.S. Workers.” The title of the report made it clear that at best, Andreessen lacks respect or compassion for his fellow Americans and those who support unfortunately all-too-rare politicians such as Senator Jeff Sessions, whose unwavering support of American citizens through effective enforcement of America’s already existent immigration laws have evoked such a vile and outrageous response from Andreessen.

A fact that every politician and news talking-head in the world seems to be certain of is that you can’t win a war by air power alone. Even the media-hired retired generals throw it out as an absolute truth of warfare, as if it had fallen from the lips of Sun Tzu himself. Ask anyone, civilian, military, whatever, and he will quickly inform you of the truth of that unassailable rule of modern warfare.

On Sunday night, Nigel Farage, the Chairman of the United Kingdom Independent Party (UKIP), said that the next time Republicans prop up a “continuity, establishment candidate” for President of the United Sates, they are not going to win. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday, airing at 7-10 pm ET on Sirius XM Patriot Radio and speaking with Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, Farage said that unless you can “energize and engage, to use an old fashioned term, the blue collar voter, you are not going to beat the Democrats.”

Al Franken, said in a statement Thursday, reported by Politico. “This is a job for Congress, and it’s time for the House to act.” In recent weeks Democrats in red states facing tough reelection races have pushed back against the president taking unilateral action on immigration reform.

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted. Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible. "I expect their recommendations before the end of summer, and I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay," Obama explained in June, referring to a requested proposal from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Third Parties Won´t Save Our Country

Thirty-six seats are up for grabs in the Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested. Of those 36 Senate seats, 15 are currently held by Republicans while 21 are held by Democrats. Clearly, the math is on the Republican side, as is the fact that the incumbent party typically loses seats in mid-term elections. This upcoming November 2014 election is crucial for America and voting for a third party candidate will not achieve the victory. To end the Obama “Rule by Decree” power grab, we have to wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats.

If our Congress wishes to fight its steady march into irrelevance it will have to actually go back to doing its job. Once upon a time, the first Article of the Constitution established all the powers that the Congress has and obligations that Congress must adhere to as they conduct their legislative business. Then, beginning in the 1930’s and 40’s, through the passage of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and other actions, Congress abdicated part of its legislative authority to an ever increasing number of federal departments and agencies.

A substantial number of political prognosticators, including the likes of the highly respected Nate Silver´s 538.com blog, give the Republicans a substantial chance of not only picking up senate seats in November, but of getting at least 51 and thus a working majority (50 seats would see a tie with Vice-President Biden giving the Dem´s a majority). Where the seers differ is not only the percentage probability of the Republicans gaining control of the senate, just how many seats the GOP will end up with.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

The United States government is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration´s Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night.

The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight
