Former presidential adviser Karl Rove said Tuesday that the race for the Republican Party presidential nomination is wide open.
There is no front-runner in Iowa; theres no front-runner in America, Rove said on Fox News. We should welcome that.
Since November, Mr. Rove has made similar comments during his speaking tours. He has openly criticized a number of Republican nominees, including Republican Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine ODonnell. Ms. ODonnell eventually lost to Democratic U.S. Senator Chris Coons.
He noted that recent polls show four candidates who are consistently ahead. Among those included likely include former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, all of whom have been touted as possible presidential candidates.
The fact that no single candidate is leading in early polls means this contest is going to be wide open, Mr. Rove said, adding that a wide open race is good for conservatives.
Rove blew it. Someone needs to tell him. He is over.
Impossible for him to say as NO ONE had announced yet.
Karl, you ought to ask Sarah if she will accept your endorsement now, before it’s too late.
Rove wants conservtives to wallow around with a half dozen potential candidates while some RINO walks away with the prize. We need one conservative front runner by spring.
Rove truly has become the bastard, but not a magnificent one, as many FReepers once assigned to him.
He is an idiot. Someone tell Sean Hainnity who has RINO idiots like Rove and Newt on his radio show.
Karl is looking rather irrelevant these days.
He doesn’t know anything, but he sure is more than willing to spout off utter tripe.
Every true conservative who does not kowtow to the RINO line will always be shut down by Rove.
He’s for hire. The more they wallow the more he can shop himself. Dude is past tense, no longer relevant, and stumping still for the Bush faction.
Karl Rove is as much my enemy as Nancy P. Is. Why, you might ask?
Answer: He opposes Conservatism as much as she does, and further more he supports DC corruption as much as she does, pure and simple.
Know thy friends and enemies, and then proceed wisely, that’s my outlook!
Karl, Newt, The Huskster and others are paid against dedicated to the destruction of Our Republic because they operate for money at hand, and have no principles that they are willing to sacrifice for. JMHO
there really is no front runner,it’s too early to declare anyone as the potential winner.Chris Matthews especially has declared Sarah Palin as the winner. Maybe it’s because he wants her to win? so he can continue bashing her for the next two years? I am still sticking with my earlier predictions of either Pence or Thune(even though many Freepers don’t agree with me).
Oh, shut it Karl.
I’ll bet Rove will soon come out and tell us that it’s Dick Lugar’s turn in the GOP nomination barrel.
I thought he made some good points on the National Review cruise, but when I discussed my thoughts with the unassailable Kate O’Bierne, she said he was defending W’s and his policies.
Palin 2012... and Rove can KMA.
Translation: Romney has dropped in the polls! Sarah is surging...We need to do something quick!
