Rove: Palin Endorsement “Not Worth Snot” For Gingrich
Buzzfeed ^ | 3-7-12 | Miller

Posted on 03/07/2012 1:27:19 PM PST by VinL

Karl Rove mockingly dismissed the value of Sarah and Todd Palin's endorsements on a private conference call today, noting that their backing of Newt Gingrich in Alaska "demonstrated that endorsements don’t mean snot."

BuzzFeed obtained the dial-in information for the conference call with Barclays Capital clients and employees, in which Rove outlined the state of the Republican race for the presidency and the path forward for the candidates.

It’s no secret that Rove, who orchestrated President George W. Bush’s presidential wins, is no fan of the Palins, and has repeatedly sparred over with the former Alaska Governor since she entered the national political scene in 2008.

Rove criticized Palin for being hyper-sensitive to criticism last year, saying she’d need to get a “a slightly thicker skin” if she wanted to run for president. In 2008 he called her selection as John McCain's running mate a political decision, as opposed to a decision to be best prepared to govern.

Rove also said on the call that he expects Democrats to hold the Senate, and that Newt Gingrich is on the brink of becoming "irrelevant" to the presidential race.

Rove--now there's a class act.

Whether intended or not, Gov. Palin is now seen as "in" for Newt. I hope she goes all in-- and gets on the campaign trail.

I have always despised Rove.....the little weasel never fooled me for one second. But he sure fooled many a FReeper over the years.

Karl Rove thinks he is SOOO smart - and maybe he is, but knowing the fact intellectually does not make it any the more palatable.

Wonkishness is not an endearing quality.

What is a Karl Rove? He's 'snot' anything. Go Sarah! Go Newt!

Rove is no Republican. He’s just an egotistical opportunist.
Rush trying to tell a caller today that Karl is good at what he does.

I think I know the answer to this question but was he duping her? :-)

That would be the same Karl Rove who turned what should have been two run away wins into an extra inning affair and a late inning comeback???

In fairness, hge said [ANY] “endorsements don’t mean snot.” - not singling out the Palins’ endorsements.

But he doesn’t deserve fairness the little weasel enemy of conservatism with his Romney and Romney-clone candidates.
His one-trick pony died after 2004, and he wasn’t so well then.

Karl sounds a little stressed out. Maybe it’s because his boy Mittens can’t get it done. The Resistance is winning.

Karl Rove is almost single handedly responsible for creating the fracture between the Hawaii Republican Party (HRP) and the various islands wide Tea Party movement in 2010 .
Things have very improved since either .

Poor Rove. NO POWER, and relegated to being a talking head pundit with NOT a lot of influence.

I think he is going away. After that Dance exhibition he gave at a campaign stop in 2008 I think he is going to be on Dancing with the Stars.
