Karl Rove questions Sarah Palin's suitability for president (in the British "Telegraph")
The Telegraph (Britain) ^ | 10/27/2010 | By Alex Spillius in Washington

"Expressing the strongest public reservations about the conservative star made by any senior Republican figure, Mr Rove said it was unlikely that voters would regard someone starring in a reality show as presidential material."

I agree. We need a good solid dose of Nationalism not more internationalist sell outs. I understand that we live in a global economy but free trade has become as irrational a religion as the “global warming” pimps. We need to trade but we need to WIN that trade.

We need a government that puts the interests of this country first. I may not approve of the actions of Russia or China but the governments of those countries are not confused about their priorities. Our security, our prosperity, our influence in the world is what is important to me.

Rove, Bush, etc. are decent well intentioned men but they saw the chessboard from too high a perch. Down here in the mud things are looking ugly.

Anyone that Rove is against I am now all for.

He's a sleazy bastard and Bush's presidency will be rightfully seen as weak and hapless because of Rove's personal ambitions.

Spot on!

Rove was such a genius that he lost the popular vote in 2000, saw the Senate flip during his first year as Chief of Staff, lost the House in ‘06, all while supporting bigger Government and Amnesty. Now, because of this “genius”, who was so good he helped his President to an approval rating in the 20’s, we have Obama.

Now this Genius and ultimate Washington insider is going to help Romney the way he helped the former President? Fine with me.

I still think Rove has Jeb Bush in mind.

A documentary on Alaska is a reality show?

Rove is at war with conservatives, this is his version of an October surprise, it does not help anyone that Palin has endorsed, and it steps on the campaigning that she is doing this week for two Senatorial candidates that the GOP has already acted against, Joe Miller, and Christine O’Donnell, not to mention how it hurts conservative chances against Mitt Romney for 2012.

Karl Rove and the Romney wing of the GOP really should not be the benefactors of your trolling nonsense at all, but especially, only days before the election when he is working against us.

Rove, you and your boss helped wreck the USA. You guys just aren’t that bright.

Unlike Levin, Hannity never fails to fawn over Rove and give him an audience. When will Levin realize Hannity is a “back bencher?”

I seldom listen to Hannity, but today I did for a while, now I remember why I can’t stand his show. Has he ever allowed anyone that disagrees with him complete a sentence? He does it in such an annoying way, unlike Levin that just attacks and gets it over with. When Hannity is not interrupting a caller he’s telling them how humble he is.

Sarah Palin has proven she is not loyal to elites in her own party when they are doing wrong.

No doubt some Republican elites don't want to see upstarts gain so much influence, and the Rove ego and self-importance doubtless make it that much more difficult for "The Architect".

(I wish someone would slap Hannity every time he uses that term for Rove. Rove was the architect of the Republican nose dive from 2004 through 2008.)

i question Karl Rove’s sanity, he is like a yo yo. Or is possible that Karl Rove is a mysogynoist (he hates woman - my spelling might be a little off). He seems to have this love hate relationship with Republicans and women. He seems to endorse the men but fails to endorse the women. What is wrong with the women are they too conservative or is that Karl Rove is just lacking in a weine and balls. Lets face the woman have more balls than he does in their little pinky than he has. Karl Rove is an emasculated male. Correct me if I am wrong but I see Karl Rove and Barack Obama as the same type of person when it comes to woman whom challenge him. Maybe the woman are to strong for him so he has to bash them utilizing name calling and belittling them. Karl Rove cannot deal with a woman that has more strength of character than he does. He is intimaidate by palin, O’Donnell and et al.

So many words, none of which explain why Rove should not have his own opinion.

Do you reckon anyone who does not agree 100% with you should just shut the hell up?

She’s the guest on Fox News Sunday and Rove wants attention.

Thanks for the reminder! Karl seems to have a problem with the Tea Party movement. Even though it started as (and still is) a grass roots movement,Palin is one of the biggest names behind it that has kept it in the limelight.

These candidates might be less polished than the typical ones, but they are real, they are new blood, and they know their mission.

Karl needs to see their infusion into the Rep. party as the means to stop the obama/dem train wreck. The old guard won't do it.

I've almost stopped listening to Hannity. I find more and more that he irritates me, and his callers irritate me. And his constant fawning over "The Architect" really irritates me.

Some of his other guests can be informative at times, if I happen to decide to listen or watch.

I wouldn’t agree with what he said, regardless of when he might have said it, BUT, 6 flipping days before the damn election!!

What folks need to remember about Rove is that everything he does, he does for his own personal gain.

I STRONGLY suspect that bastard is working for Romney.
