Skip to comments.Rove: Palin Endorsement “Not Worth Snot” For Gingrich
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 dont 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.
Its no secret that Rove, who orchestrated President George W. Bushs 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 shed 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.
I 2nd that
Blow-hard!—your nose, Rove!
Well, if ANYONE knows about Snot and Snottiness it would be Karl Rove. But I think that what Rove is observing is the Snot on his eyeglasses which is obscuring his view of REALITY.
Karl Rove is not worth snot.
Gutsy Sarah woludn’t need Todd.
She’d kick the everliving SNOT out of Tokyo all by herself.
It seems that the two pics show two different views of (nearly) the same moment in time...but...the top pic shows a banner behind the signing party that is not in the bottom pic. Interesting.
Wanna bet it’s not worth the tissue used for that snot? NOT!
Rove has backed every Republican moderate that has ran for a Presidential election. He thinks he has the power to turn elections to whom he wants. Where did the first Bush get us? Where did the 2nd Bush get us? Where did McCain get us? Where will Romney get us? He needs to shut up and let the voters decide. Cannot believe Fox pays this man to comment with his chalk board.
“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”
If anybody should know about becoming irrelevant its Tokyo. His credibility was gone after the Christine O’Donnell campaign. Foxney News is the only place he can still be on the air.
Rove, you malfeasant bastard!
Gop-e Rove is now Robamney’s water carrier We don’t want your lefty rino’s Karl go away
I wish Fox would let Palin and Rove have a little Mono on Mono roundtable. Palin would eat Rove’s lunch. Notice how Fox never has Rove and Palin interviewed at the same time? I wonder why?
what a POS....I’ve been watching him, but this end it......
” Palin would eat Roves lunch. Notice how Fox never has Rove and Palin interviewed at the same time? I wonder why?”
Uh......no you don’t : )
Far too many on FR have a habit of placing politicians and pundits on pedestals just before they get pissed on...
