Karl Rove calls victory of Deb Fischer a "big win" for GOP
FOX News

Posted on 05/16/2012 7:21:31 PM PDT by Hugin

So I'm watching Greta on FOX and turdblossom is asked about the victory of Palin backed Deb Fischer in the NE Sanate primary. And he says it's a great victory for the GOP, singing the praises of what a great candidate she is. HUH?

This is good. Rove controls America at the Crossroads, an organization that gave millions to Tea Party Senate candidates in 2010. (despite the fact that he was down on Chrisine O’Donnell)

He spend millions on Angle and millions in Colorado on Buck. Same with Rubio and Rand Paul.

Rove is a complete POS but isn’t a dumb POS. He got his eyes opened and is smart enough to understand what happened!

Rove knows the true conservatives are on to him. He may have praised this candidate but he sure as hell supported the biggest rino for president..Mitt Romney! Rove can go to hell and take Coulter with him.

Do not trust any RINO! We must remember back in 2010 they were caught saying that they would have to COOPT the new Tea Party types in Congress. It seems to have been quite successful.

Of course he spent a lot of money on Tea Party candidates. But you wouldn’t read any acknowledgement in Free Republic. Too often we demonize people we don’t like and make them a complete evil without bother looking at the fact.

Rove is highly paid to deliver Republicans.

He has no skin in patriots but for delivering the R’s.

He will take care of the new and green ones in due time, when he turns them over to the DC Establisment, where they will be then pulverized, sanitized and mummyfied. Made virtually useless.

Is it or isn’t a fact that Rove provided money to many Tea Party candidates in 2010? I know you don’t like him, Jim. Yes, he supported many RINO candidates as well, but it doesn’t negate the fact that his organizations supported many candidates that many Freepers supported as well.

Check Romney’s record on appointing judges.

I know. But the liberals MADE him do it. Just like they MADE him advance abortionism, homosexualism, global warming, gun control, big government, socialized health care, government mandates against individuals, homosexual marriage, $50 tax payer funded abortion, statism, etc. Romney has no will of his own. And there is no principle of liberty that he will not betray for power and money.

I have a personal email from Turdblossom in which he calls Free Republic a “site for irrelevant whiners and moaners”.

This is a fact to add to the many reasons to detest him.

Conservatives need to understand that Karl Rove is not their friend, and that he will do all he can to destroy the Tea Party. In the last three years I have heard him criticized conservatives as much if not more so than the liberal talking heads of CNN, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, and NPR.

The only reason he was kind to Deb Fischer, is because she will help give the Republicans the Senate, but he will turn on her and other conservatives the moment he and his establishment friends have the Senate.

I remember watching Rove on Fox and friends last year and he was publicly attacking Palin for having a reality show. He told Steve that she lacked the “gravitas” to be POTUS. He even declared that she was too thin skinned for the White House because she dared to defend herself against the ongoing attacks from Rove.

Earlier this year he then attacked Cain, Bachmann, Perry, Santorum, and Gingrich for running too far to the right during the primary. A few days later I read that Eric Boehlert of Media Matters praising Rove as a “voice of reason. The guy said the rest of the right-wing media was certifiably insane and that Rove stood alone as a moderate and thoughtful one pundit who understood hopw out of touch conservatives really are.

This from Media matters of all friggen places. Does anyhting more need to be said about the Benedict Arnold?

Hahaha! I had an interesting e-mail debate with Rove over his trashing our Tea Party candidates. His last retort to me was, “I’ve been trying to get republicans elected! What have YOU been doing.” My reply was, “I’ve been writing big checks to YOU with the money my boss allows me to spend...CHECK IT OUT! But you’ll not get another freaking dime from this pen. I’ll send our money directly to the candidates!” This man is a slime bucket. When I kept asking him how much he had invested in contracts with the other republican candidates while he was trashing ours, he kept evading an answer. It’s all about the money!

I hate rove. But we are gonna need all hands on deck to stop are current communist dictator from winning a 2nd term.

I also don’t like Mittens at all. But I have 2 kids. I cannot sit out this election and watch their futures go down the toilet.

Mittens and rove are “all we got,”

So we can sit on the sidelines (like I have been very inclined to do) or at least try to slow down this madness.

Rove funded some tea party candidates after they won their primaries.

But he, often using American Crossroads, has done as much as anyone to undermine the tea party and real conservatives.

And his nasty front and back stabbing of Sarah Palin is as ugly as it gets.

A few dollars that he’s obligated to kick to some tea party candidates after they win the primaries in order to keep his American Crossroads gig going should do nothing to cloud our understanding of who Rove is.

Don’t be gobsmacked. The asswipe Rove has seen his name and reputation become an obscenity to the conservative base and he is in massive damage control mode.

Too little - too late. He was part of the Romney Carpet Bombing Air Wing. His credibility is forever gone.

This may sound like a dumb question, but I’m serious. Can someone provide me links to articles discussing what is wrong with Rove?

For years, I’ve been reading lots of liberal stuff attacking Rove as being a right-wing Republican hatchet-man who cannot be trusted and is an evil genius. I’m not defending Rove, but I’d like to know more about what he’s done to be considered a RINO.

Gov Romney's record on judicial appointments.."The Boston Globe in 2005 said the following: Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans, has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters (75%) of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced, instead tapping registered Democrats or independents – including two gay lawyers who have supported expanded same-sex rights.

Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.

In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unrolled voters, and 14 registered Democrats. Even a liberal outfit like the Boston Globe saw the obvious hypocrisy in Romney’s appointments. We don’t need to guess what Mitt Romney’s judicial appointments would be like as President. We need only to look at his existing record. The record shows it all and is further evidence that Mitt Romney is no conservative. Mitt Romney is a liberal.

They trash him (1) Because of his connection to GW and they hate Bush (2) He didn't support Christine O-Donnell because he didn't think she could win (3) He didn't support the more conservative candidate running against Dee Dee Scozzafava in NY 23.

Of course, him being a strategy guy, like Newt who they now love, he didn't think O'Donnell and NY guy could win and he's all about banking on majorities to gain control of Congress.

So, in short, it doesn't matter his reasoning or his absolute dedication to beating the Democrats...he wasn't pure (as they are) and must have "RINO" screamed at him whenever he appears in a thread.

You're welcome.
