Posted on 12/06/2011 4:57:29 PM PST by TBBT
Karl Rove isnt officially affiliated with any of the GOP candidates, but if you listen to him, its becoming increasingly clear he has a favorite. Were not the first to notice, but Karl Rove seems firmly in the Mitt Romney camp. Whats more, hes goes on TV a lot to lob attacks at just about every other candidate.
Rove has taken a stab at just about every candidate other than Romney, and on Tuesday it was Newt Gingrichs turn. With multiple polls showing Newt Gingrich surging in Iowa, Rove took to Fox News, to undermined the former speaker:
If in the polls newt is leading by 10 or 11 or 12 points going into the Iowa caucuses and doesnt win by that margin people are going to say, well, he didnt meet his mark. That is a challenge for somebody who has not built organization.

It seems like Rove always goes for the most liberal candidate.
I am not sure who I am supporting at this point, but what I do know is that I want Porky Pig face to STFU and go away!!
To think, I once rather admired Rove.
Fat Boy wants to be a Playa !
Rove can talk all he wants, but all I hear is white noise.
First Newt gets a Christmas present from Piglosi.
Now he gets one from an actual pig.
I’m really sick of Rove.
Wow. I once really liked Karl. Now... not so much.
Your list keeps growing. LOL!
Rove is certainly a POS, but I dont see the attack here. Just seems like his egitistical opinion to me.
“That is a challenge for somebody who has not built organization.
That is because Newt has not had much money to work with. His campaign has been on a shoe string and one of the reasons he skipped signing up for Missouri. With the surge in the polls maybe more money will be flowing his way. I think he has done quite well working on a shoestring budget.
This election is rapidly becoming the republican establishment and the democrats against the American people ( at least the producing varity)
Lots of progressives need FReeping.
In this capitalist society I do not understand the market for a Karl Rove.
The best way to silence Rovio is to shut off FNC!!
On the mild mannered treatment of Romney, someone please explain the difference between Rove and Bachman. On running interference for Romney, against all the other candidates, someone please explain the difference between the full throated efforts of Bachman on stage, and Rove off stage, against everyone else.
Dying to hear the many different versions of why this is acceptable conduct for Bachman but unacceptable from Rove.
Oh come on, we NEED Mittens so we ALL can be forced to bail out the Massachusetts health care debacle.
