Steven J. Law, the president of the super PAC AmericanCrossroads, is the man behind the Conservative Victory Project, a new effort aimed at supporting conservative candidates whom it deems capable of winning general elections and opposing those it deems incapable of that task. Law told the New York Times on Sunday,We dont view ourselves as being in the incumbent-protection business, but we want to pick the most conservative candidate who can win.
Law spoke to NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINEs Jim Geraghty Wednesday afternoon.
JIM GERAGHTY: You guys havestirred up quite a reaction since the New York Times article Sunday. So, think of this as a second shot: What do you want to tell the conservative grass roots about the Conservative Victory Project, and is there anything thats gotten misconstrued since that piece appeared?
STEVEN LAW: I actually didnt think the New York Times piece was that far off. I think it ended up being misinterpreted following the initial reporting.
We start from a premise that almost anybody can agree with:that 2012 was a really tough year for Republicans, for conservatives, and from my perspective, for the country. Its the sort of election we dont want to see repeated again. And were engaged in some very serious criticalanalysisof what went wrong and what can be improved upon, and that starts with us. Were reevaluating how we run ads, how we use research, all those sorts of things. As a result, well do some things much better in the next cycle.
But in addition to that, one of the things we encountered was candidates on our side who just werent competitive for a varietyofreasons.
Looking back at our investments last cycle and looking back to 2010, where I think there were some weaknesses masked by what was otherwise a very strong year, we saw that we faced a problem of candidate quality that we think we need to address. A lot of the focus has been on candidates who weremuch more conservative than others, but only because some of them self-destructed so spectacularly and Im thinking in particular of Todd Akinin Missouri and Richard Mourdock in Indiana but there were plenty of weaknesses from candidates across the spectrum, including those who might be thought of as establishment candidates.
Steven J. Law = Karl Rove’s sock puppet....
Steven J. Law = Karl Rove = John Boehner = Mitch McConnell = John McCain = The Judenrat GOP for the MarxoFascists.
Make no mistake.
They are not even surrender monkeys. They are COLLABORATORS in destroying Conservatism and the TEA Party.
Yes, and I think I remember the NRO (Notorious Rhinos Organization) helping to ram Romney down our throats and dis the other Repub. candidates during the early parts of the last campaign cycle.
Steve Law-—still digging Rove’s hole to China.
First of all guys like Rove and others ignored the mechanics of basic campaigning. They allowed the M.ainline S.ocialist M.edia drive the issues and are still doing so they learned nothing from their disasters.I find it inexcuseable for Rove to allow his boss GWB get continuosly trashed without responding.
These people I call them GOPES because it rhymes with dopes right now are falling into the same trap. Limbaugh and Levin, God bless them ...realize that what Limbaugh calls the LIVs (low intelligence voters) actually believe that Obama is offering the proverbial olive branch to Republicans when actually he is proceeding on his path to complete socialism. AND THEY CANT CALL HIM A LIAR .
This administration came up with a policy on energy which had driven up the cost on everything. It was on the tongue of every black, white. yellow,and brown skined person living in the US....IT WENT UNTOUCHED in the 2012 campaign....WORSE YET IT IS STILL GOING UNCHALLANGED
Now the GOPES are buying into the demographic argument offered by the MSM. Here you have an issue staring at them straight in the face affecting every man,woman,and child of every skin color and you cant bring it up and they talk about demographics being pushed by the socialist media .
They should be decrying the philosphy of demographics by stating theyre Americans first not Afro-Americans. not Hispanic-Americans and not-Asian-Americans, or White-Americans. The counter charge should be these are socialist tactics neing pushed by the hypenated Demo-coms. Democrats in socialist/fascist clothing. Let alone not mention the booing of God’s name during their convention then belittle those Republicans who express a religious conviction even to the point of suggesting that those that do shouldn’t run for political office.
Rove and his RINOS are wrong for the Republicans .
or at least that is what real Conservatives should call it.
The Democrat-lite Victory Project....simpering liberals, the lot of them.
