This is characterized as a joke, and it probably was intended that way, but it is in the context of GETTING RID OF TODD AKIN.
This is far worse than anything Todd Akin said.
I don’t care who you are, this was stupid.
The GOPe has become as disgusting and deranged as the democrats.
Justice ain’t gonna be pretty.
When are these idiots going to learn to stop shooting themselves in the foot??
Rove is the Democrat Party's best ally.
Shut up Karl.
all of the establishment is.
They saw in 2008 qne then 2010 that their power was under threat, they have worked so hard to take out any people who are socially and fscally conservaties, in their elitist party they only care about how much tax they pay and ot hell with conservatives.
Sarah, Col Allen West, where were they this week?
The elitist establishment have gone liberal on social issues and only want their ivy league lot in power.
To hell with the eltist north east, beltway establishment.
America is not the beltway or the north east or the west coast , we in the south and th emidwest and AK do not go along with their homosexual cross dressing, elitist ivy league thinking.
That goes for FOX too who seems to think NY City is America
Even though I strongly believe Rove to be a despicable hack, I also have to consider the source of this piece.
As long as we aren’t talking about the President committing Treason on a hot mike I’m sure Politico will be happy.
Not cool at all. Murder jokes, no matter who is the butt of them, are just not a good idea and are unseemly.
Rove sure has the delusions of grandeur.
Does anyone know anything about the Rove divorce, BTW? Is he a toe-sucker, does he like the DC hooker brigade? Does he sport teenage arm candy?
Sometimes this doughy little twerp really p^^^es me off.
Rove is totally despicable, if only for what he did to California.
Akin can best be helped out at this point by donations! Please.
That’s not funny. Hopefully this will help Todd Akin sheesh. Talk about stupid whose stupid mouth got ahead of its brain this time Karl?
“We dont care who the nominee is, other than get Akin out.
Yep, dont care if another RINO candidate takes Akins’s place. Simply disgusting.
Oh, that rove. He is a real card, ain’t he? He looks like a kewpie doll on steroids.
It orignated with businessweek and politico simply reported it.
He either said it or didn’t say it.
Is Rove some sort of closet alcoholic?
We always say about the liberal media, "If that had been a republican who said that, they'd be strung up."
About the GOP-E and Karl Rove: "If that had been a conservative, he'd have lost his job."
This was unbelievably stupid.
What is worse is that it WAS IN THE CONTEXT OF actually getting rid of Todd Akin.
I don’t understand it. Rove, just to be honest, generally is very much in control of his tongue.
This is very, very odd.
It was at a business fundraiser and maybe he had had one too many drinks.
Akin misused the word “illegitimate” according to some.
I wonder if they think Rove misused the word “murder”?
rove stole the joke. I think the original had donald young and obama.
Unbelievably stupid. If Lord forbid something were to happen to Mr. Akin, The Architect would have a whole lotta ‘splainin to do.
Truth of the matter is this....Much of the GOP Establishment would love nothing better than to be rid of all us Pro lifer/family values crowd.
Most of them share the words of Jonah Goldberg a few years ago.....
” I wish the Republican party would drop it`s pro life family values platform so that we can start winning elections again”
That`s pretty close to his exact words, I paraphrase a degree from poor memory
that businessweek quote is found at:
The Republicans have NO MORAL AUTHORITY to criticize Democrats for murder and assassination 'jokes' any more.
We need a new political party. The other two are effing BROKEN.
Here are the five polls of record on the matter to date:
and the one statement that all seem to agree upon:
Theres clearly a disconnect on Akins candidacy between GOP leaders in Washington DC and actual GOP voters back in Missouri.
answer; I saw West and Palin on Fox.
They are onboard with the ticket.
I also saw Santorum and Ryan speak......
Last week at rhe platform hearings I also saw Schafly(A CHOICE Not An Echo) and Barton (of Beck fame), playing prominent roles.
not sure if you are saying FOX is balanced because they have been anything but. They got their guy in after the attacks they did to Newt.
The numbers for FOX are down by the millions thus far and it’s no surprise to most why.
Well, no, because then they wouldn't be able to count on (at least some of) our votes.
Happiness is that even PPP with an oversampling of Democrats puts Akin tied with Claire. Rove may well finding himself kissing the butt of the toes he stamps on.
When a derogatory remark is said in jest and it becomes amplified by one leftie agency and reamplified by Politico. They aren’t simply reporting, they are advancing an agenda to hurt both targets.
You know I believe this. I do.
Rove is a maniacal sicko and I’m not surprised he’d make a comment such as that.
I disagree with people on their politics all the time, especially people on the left but there is no way at anytime any place I’d ever even think to make a joke about murdering them.
You know normal people aren’t wired that way Karl.
Goldberg`s thinking is that once they drop the pro life Christian family values platform, they will do just fine between Rep establishment and Democrat cross overs, or cross dressers whatever
He spent $5 dollars on a whiteboard so we should listen to him.
I am praying for Todd Akin. I think what was done to him was underhanded and dirty, and as much as I despised the gop e before, I loathe and have nothing but contempt for them them now. THIS is exactly what they did with murkowski in Alaska so a true CONSERVATIVE would lose. And make no mistake, they would rather have mccaskill than a straight up Conservative who would puncture their balloons.
I hope Akin wins and wins big. I would make a fortune at the duct tape concession.
I really hope Akin wins. Talk about a Senator who will own absolutely noting to the GOP machine.

At the event, Rove urged attendees to urge Akin to get out of the race, citing Missouris Senate race as a major obstacle to Republicans taking over the Senate.
We have five people who are interested in replacing Akin as the Senate candidate, Rove said. We dont care who the nominee is, other than get Akin out.
I'm really interested in who the "we" is that Rove refers to. (The GOP-E, some elitest group, Rove & his Mom???) This is a fundraiser, and he is speaking to those who could potentially help fund Akin.
Sometimes it's nice to catch a glimpse of the smoky back room.
Good point. I can see how Rove and the rest of the GOPe look down their nose at conservatives as the fringe of the fringe.
Your allegations sound more like Dick Morris tthan Rove.
Karl Rove is despicable.
Not funny, Rove. I’m not Akins biggest fan, but... yeesh.
Where are the calls for Rove to resign???
Remember — Rove’s candidate for President is Romney.
The Republican Establishment hates social conservatives.
