ROVE IS POLITICALLY DEAD!
I will personally spend the next two years to make sure that every candidate Karl Rove supports loses in the primary. I will repeat every bad story and every rumor about Karl Rove to make sure I do all I can to destroy any future he has left in politics.
We lost the chance to win the United States Senate only because Rove decided to attack and defame the candidate we the people chose to represent the party. Had he been a real man and just supported the conservative after they won the primary, than those conservatives would have won. Especially now that we know ODonnell lost only because Republicans vote for the communist.
Aside from the Senate, it has been a great night, and it could still be even better if Fiorina beats Boxer. Great job on the House. I could still be right on my projections that the Republicans will win over 80 seats and possibly 100. The battle continues as we will now take the fight to 2012.
Hmmmm. Tokyo Rove or Sarah Palin. Hmmmmm.
Karl Rove is an elitist, inside the belt way POS. He should retire and never be heard from again.
The guy was more aggressive against Christine O’Donnel than he was against democrats when he was in the White House. Go Tea Party - Don’t Tread on Me!
Rove is a right-wing Leftist. And like most Leftists, they tend to have an elitist streak within them.
So has it already begun? Conservative cannibalism.
I’m continually amazed at how many FReepers think that everyone who has an opinion that differs from their own is evil.
Even families disagree, but they work together to further common causes.
Find something positive and worthwhile to do. We need to get Obama out of Washington and flip another one-third of the Senate in two years.
And here you are carping against a man who votes with you but didn’t like one of your candidates.
Self-defeating behavior, but it’s your life.
Stupid thread, stupid post.
Once, he was a ‘magnificent bastard’. Now, he’s just a bastard.
We must work together to destroy him.
Not one penny to the GOP. Donate only to candidates.
Anyone have an email address for Rove?
I’ve already put the call for any candidate that even eyeballs a contract with Karl Rove in the next elections!!!
Tea Party, resistnet, grassfire, WAM08.org
And that includes the establishment leadership including John Cornyn who didn’t lift a finger to help O’Donnell...
The reason folks are mad is because Rove has engaged in “conservative cannibalism” by attacking the candidates that were not Rove approved.
Well, Rove is deplorable, but Mike Castle and other RINOs certainly deserve some blame. What if this had been a normal race where the party unified and the losers endorsed and campaigned for the winning nominee? No. The RINOs had to bash Christine (she is, indeed, quite conservative, literally down the line with conservatives on every issue). They acted as spoilers and got what they wanted. Now they are giddy that they can rub conservative noses in this loss. They won this particular battle, but this war is far from over, my FRiend. The RINO hunt has just started, and I can hardly wait for 2012!
He thinks he is a King-maker.
Turn the channel every time he is on, and the loss of money will do the talking.
No, it has to do with the fact that all this time conservatives have been told to shut up and tow the party line. However, when the conservative candidate wins the primary the elitist in the GOP don’t do the same and instead demean the conservative candidate.
“Even families disagree, but they work together to further common causes”
Ohhhhhh i get it. You mean like how Rove did? Wait, no, that can’t be it, Rove the butt-boy sabotaged O’Donnell all he could. Even before she was able to begin an acceptance speech.
What's disgusting is that they won the battle by giving a senate seat to a marxist. How is that not shameful?
We gotta get rid of the RINOs.
Jedidah: “Even families disagree, but they work together to further common causes.”
Rove did NOT work together for the common cause of electing a Republican in Delaware. Your point is moot.
Like the Liberal Elite, the GOP Elite ignore our concerns.
They spend too much time "reaching across the aisle" when they should pursue conservative goals.
Try your cute little speech on the GOP Hierarchy; they're the problem. Report back with their response.
Rove is paid to tell it like he sees it. With his background and experience, his insight is often right. I would much rather listen to an analyst who speaks with honesty than one who plays to an audience.
Sometimes the truth hurts.
Rove snarking at O’Donnell after the voters in Delaware blew his candidate out of the water was bad enough, but he then doubles down by doing a Natalie Maines overseas. This guy about blew up Bush in 2004 but the Swift Boat Vets saved his hide.
He has offically outed himself, he is the enemy.
Karl did not just have a different opinion. He personally attacked conservatives who won the primaries at a time when they needed his help to get the vote. When he attacks the Tea party, he attacks ME!
Karl, is NOT a conservative. He is a inside the beltway counytry club Republican. And he is going DOWM!
Don’t believe me?
As a conservative Christian, I have more power in my keyboard and articles with my hometown newspaper than he does anymore.
KARL IS DEAD POLITICALLY!
It was after all his choice, and he chose political death when he attacked conservatives like ODonnell & Sarah Palin.
nothing like shooting yourself in the foot. Happens every time a group of humans get together for a cause.
Take no prisoners, and out the spies and traitors like Rove!
You missed Rove and Juan Williams going at it on Fox just now. Classic.
“Hey, I was just speaking truth to power. I get paid to tell it like it is not what you want it to be”.
That’s basically what he said as his I, Myself and Me-UHHHHHHH Culpa after trashing Christine.
Hmmmm.... That would be hilarious if he went to work for Mutt Wrongly.
I see by your tag line that you are waiting to go home. Will you be welcome with your attitude?
All FReepers should keep Proverbs 11:29 in the back of their minds -
"He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool [shall be] servant to the wise of heart"
Karl is still relevant to a point. He does have some good observations however when it comes to making policy and supporting conservatives and a conservative agenda, he has jumped the shark.
Thought we were stuck around 60? Which is fine, I didn’t expect more and it’s a win anyway.
You are right. We need a strong coaltion of right and center-right to defeat the Marxist in the WH in 2012.
Ain’t that the truth?! Good grief, he was being realistic! Yes, we all want conservatives to win, but in an ocean blue state, she wasn’t going to win. No wonder this site is losing people, with the attitude like alot have here anymore...if you don’t agree with me 100% of the time you are toast. Get over yourselves!
He is a master strategist and we need his intelligence and brilliant analytical mind to help us win in 2012.
I just wish he would warm up to Sarah Palin. He should see that she is our best bet.
God the internet is slow, could you speed it up ?
Back to you.
Yes, remember these are projections, not actual counts.
Well said.....I’m certain he’s not going to lose one second of sleep because he knows damn well that threats have no meaning if those that make them have no power to do anything but make noise.
Three strikes he is OUT! Hoping the Mama Grizzly in Chief takes him out really soon.
Heat up the tar and I’ll get the feathers.
It’s time to decorate the pudgy albino toad.
Hey Karl, how many of those you endorsed won? Now, how many that Sarah Palin, the one you dissed, endorsed won? So who is the real loser Karl? (And the cry goes out, “Karl, Karl Karl”)Hey Karl, isn’t there a bathroom that needs cleaning?
Karl Rove and John Cornyn...both let their masks drop in the lead up to this election.
Is Rove your boyfriend or something?
Hannity? Is that you?
I agree, 100%.
And if you look back, you can see plenty of it earlier.
Rove was the guy who gave us Arnold Schwarzenneger in California, and blew the Republicans’ one chance to change things there.
He was the guy who gave us Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania, which cost Rick Santorum his seat in the Senate.
I wouldn’t quarrel with him if he had supported Mike Castle over O’Donnell BEFORE the primary results. But he went out of his way to destroy her AFTER she won the primary, and AFTER she was booby-trapped by the drive-by media.
If it hadn’t been for Rove, she almost certainly would have won the race.
Sorry, he is not a smart operator. He is a selfish RINO jerk. He was a loser, who took Bush’s sweeping victory in the 2004 election and turned it into a sweeping defeat in 2006. No principles, and politically stupid to boot.
Sarah will not give him the time of day. As I said, he is politically dead.
I do have an old Down Feather pillow.
He should have kept his opinion to himself and worked for promoting the candidates chosen.
But they weren’t one of his inside hand jobs like Lame McCain which drained most of us of any energy and motivation to work the 2008 elections.
That drab Old Man and the rest of Milktoasts, who did nothing but glad hand each other and even give high praise to Fauxbama are doddering old men and I don’t see their names ever again.
The last election was suppose to be about ideas. Two parties jostling it out until the field winnowed to two candidates and their ideas.
Instead, we got a bunch of guys saying “I agree with the gentleman and blah, blah, blah”.
There wasn’t a razors width difference between any of them except who was in a bigger hurry.
If a Republican had prevailed he would have acted oh so gentlemanly and strode with their egalitarian gait, as we slowly continued the direction we were headed.
As it is, we got Barry, The Kenyan, and he did what I half expected him to do: He filled up the gas tank, slapped the go pedal to the carpet and drove us off a cliff.
Karl can go Fleck himself. His words were not in the slightest helpful and just plain arrogant.
It was as if the RNC and other country clubbers were telling the rest of us “Son, you made a choice that wasn’t what I wanted and now I am going to show you who is boss”.
I will never give to the country club ever again and if they ever pull what they did again, you can be sure I will work against their candidates that are lame and that will mean I spend money on Democrats.
But that’s my 2 cents and some immeasurable amount after taxes.
If he pushes his Rinos, they are DOA IMO. Rove can go FH.
As other have pointed out, Rove was behind some of the worst of the Bush policies along with some great strategy. The problem as that as time went on, it was more bad policies than anything else. I firmly believe it was Rove who advised W to cynically sign McCain-Feingold, and that represented for me the beginning of the downhill slide that culminated in the bailout bill.
