Exclusive: Karl Rove Discusses CO House Prospects
National Review ^ | October 1, 2010 | Michael Sandoval

Posted on 10/02/2010 2:24:25 PM PDT by george76

Karl Rove, whose American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS have raised millions of dollars on behalf of GOP candidates all over the country, has spent at least $1.3 million targeting Sen. Michael Bennet...

Rove turned to Colorado’s Congressional battles, featuring Republicans Cory Gardner in CO-4, Scott Tipton in CO-3, and Ryan Frazier in CO-7. Rove held a fundraiser in Aspen, Colorado, for the three candidates last week. “I’m feeling good about Cory. In fact, you’re starting to see the Democrats start to dial back some of their buys in the Markey district,” said Rove to Battle ‘10.

“Tipton has a really good shot at beating him [Rep. John Salazar],” added Rove. “But,” as he sounded a bit of caution, “this race is going to be fought right until the end, because they won’t pull back from Salazar.”

Rove also highlighted the race between Frazier and Rep. Ed Perlmutter. “The interesting one is going to be Frazier,” said Rove. “He represents the quintessential Colorado swing district. These others [Gardner, Tipton] are Republican districts that fell into Democrat hands. This is a district that is fully capable of being won by either party,”

The American Future Fund is pouring $560,000 into Colorado’s 7th district, targeting Perlmutter.

I am monumentally disinterested in anything Karl Rove thinks.

The challenge Frazier in a swing district is earning the support of ticket-splitting voters.

Agreed; he has shown that he cannot be counted on to be fair. He let his desire to back a winner cloud his judgement when his ‘winner’ actually lost

There is a second possibility.

“Tipton has a really good shot at beating him [Rep. John Salazar],”

Maybe Karl ought to help Salazar out by calling Tipton a crazy liar.

Maybe Karl is just going back to his old playbook of disrupting campaigns? Anyone remember his little incident from the Alan Dixon campaign a long time ago? Karl has a habit of doing sh*t to disrupt campaigns?

Would this be the Karl Rove who told Tancredo to never darken the White House steps and called Tancredo a ‘traitor to the Republican party’ because of Tancredo’s position against amesty for illegal aliens?.

I have marginilized Karl Rove since his revealing remarks about Christine O’Donnell. When he appears on the radio or t.v., I simply change the channel.

Karl Rove is toxic sewage waste. I would be very leery of any “Republican” that is supported by Rove. Rove is a PROVEN RINO and he is trying to elect more RINOs.

I agree with Karl Rove’s assessment on the Colorado Congressional races. Cory Gardner is probably in. Betsy Markey campaigned as an independent-minded moderate and voted for the Obama agenda. Voters don’t like being lied to. The Scott Tipton/John Salazar race could go either way and could decide control of the House.

Ryan Frazier is more problematic. He is a solid candidate, but Earl Perlmutter is one of the tougher ‘Rat incumbents. He’s run ahead of party lines in every election.

Karl Rove has always been such a smart-ass, ego jerk. And a zillion folks loved him here on FR.

I disliked him from the beginning. He was/is a phony. And on top of that, since Bush never had a brain, this creature was doing Bush’s think for him.

P.S.

It appears to me Karl was and has been taking orders from the elite kingmakers and was telling George what to do. This is why he went nuts last week or so when he realized he had no control over the Tea Party Movement to elect the Tea Party Movement’s choice rather than the elite’s choice.

What a fat ugly ass he is.
