Then at about 3:00 Rove says:
"It's one thing to say the president should put forth his birth certificate, and I don't understand why he isn't, and it is another thing to go out there and do what Trump has done and feed this paranoia that Obama is somehow not born in the United States of America"
This looks to me like a green light to Rove-blessed GOP establishment candidates to say that you don't know why Obama hasn't "put forth" his BC!
I’d say that statement is definitely a change of position... maybe Mr. Rove’s employer Ms. Bachmann wasn’t too happy with the feedback she almost certainly received today.
If Rove wants to be considered a voice to listen to he better start targeting obama instead of other conservatives.
Either Rove screwed up....or too many fraud Cons are taking his talking points
Calling Birthers crazy and attacking them is no way to beat Barack Hussein Obama.
And, you can bet radio stations carrying Rush Limbaugh and Mark Lah-vin shows are feeling the heat now. Calling the base kooks and karazees does not help your ratings.
While she sounded like she was saying the COLB would be OK, she clearly was making the point that Obama hasn't actually submitted it to any court or authorities who could verify it.
I suspect that Romney is Rove’s favored candidate, not Bachmann, and it will be interesting to see if Romney picks up on this line of “Why hasn't he put forth the BC?”
Interesting, because it seems that Rove wants Romney, and Romney has said it is a non issue. Maybe the Corsi book jumping to number 1 at Amazon has him reevaluating his position.
In politics its important to hammer home certain things and say one thing over and over....
I think “Why doesnt Obama release his BC ? “ is a non complicated thing to ask
I think Bachmann was saying well if Obama were to submit a BC _and_ it were authenticated that would be OK.
While she sounded like she was saying the COLB would be OK, she clearly was making the point that Obama hasn’t actually submitted it to any court or authorities who could verify it.
After seeing and reading Bachmann’s recent comments....she did not seem so sure in saying all is OK in the Stephy interview. The Liberal Media is quite anti-Birther and will spin any comment favoring Obama
And, inconsistency is not Bachmann’s thing.
Also, note, she has never attacked Birthers
the MSM covers for him insinuating it is an official document.
So trump has forced rove’s hand, that is pretty impresive.
Just last week Gretta re-played the tape on this video of Rove saying Trump was “off in the nutty right”!
Now, with Trump's poll numbers rising Rove is trying to make his way back to the front of the parade, only he wants to school Trump on how to be more moderately credible as a “birther” by avoiding false statements.
I really do turn the channel when Rove come on... With FOX, that does seem to require a liberal use of the remote...
According to Rove you just aren't supposed to say it like that crass Donald Trump!
Too Late Rove.. Too late... We know you are a rat and it’s why we now have Obama. Thanks for nothing!
Obama has not released his LONG FORM birth certificate.
For whatever reason.
Also, Obama has a Connecticut SS#.
Strange stuff by anyone’s standards.
If Rove takes a position, run the other way.
Rove’s policy advice and influence on George Bush during his presidency are a major reason why Barack Obama sits in the White House today.
B...Bu...But Ted Baxter says he has actually seen the BC... so how is it that Tokyo Rove doesn't understand why obamao hasn't put forth the BC?
How could Ted Baxter have seen it if it hasn't been put forth?
I'm so confused... /sarc
Corsi you magnificent bastard!
Rove must have got a word that it maybe revealed that Obama is not a U.S. citizen, and it’s why all of sudden he has changed his tune? Just don’t forget where he was 24 hours ago.
Keep in mind folks Trump is not going to say something unless he already knows that he has won. Trump is not stupid enough to say what he did without already knowing all the cards on the table. That’s why he is a billionaire.
Even if you do not plan to vote for Trump... You should be cheering him on against Obama with this birth issue. We have to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.
You can continue to cheer on all candidates that go against Obama, but then vote for who you like when the time comes.
Corsi you magnificent bastard!
I think he SwiftRove Rove
Rove just the other day saying the issue is Inconsequential and a Joke.
That twit sticks his smelly finger in the air...Rove’s a toad.
Corsi is going to make Rove and company look like fools. Rove is probably just figuring that out...
Whats ON that darned thing!?..
Political ideology, when it becomes the religion of a person, is more difficult to change directions about than turning a battleship in a shipyard.
Rove will hold to his RINO principles and talking points until they drown him like a lead weight.
>> Maybe the Corsi book jumping to number 1 at Amazon has him reevaluating his position.
Is this “The Book” where all is supposedly revealed?
Corsi is great. I sent in my 25.00 to run the new commercials. Can’t wait to see them!!!
But yes, Corsi’s book is about to slam into the Islamic Kremlin on the Potomac at full speed. This is why we see communist cockroaches such as Stephonopolis getting so angry.
Romney is a Commie... Rove’s favorite..
If that's true then it sounds like Rove fell for Trump's play.
Since when does a reporter accept "none of your business" as an answer about possible new and revealing information about a POTUS? Stephanie outed himself as a partisan toadie with no interest in reporting real news by ignoring that.
It’s one thing to say the president should put forth his birth certificate, and I don’t understand why he isn’t,
Bush called Rove
I’ll take the Obama BC seriously only when the National Review and Weakly Standard give me the go ahead! (sarc)
I cannot understand why instead of supporting their constituencies, the Rove, O’Reilly, Levin, etc have decided to attack all who want the hidden background on this Fraud Prez to be released...I’m starting to distrust the whole bunch including Coulter, Rush and Ingram!
I love how Trump slaps around the media. It’s about time someone did it.
0’Reilly’s constituency is 0’Reilly’s mirror. As for the others I don’t know. It’s tough to take on an issue when the opposition has absolute control over the only evidence.
It is beyond me why conservatives look to Rove as the “kingmaker”.
Rove ? GO POUND SAND ! we don’t care what you say or think anymore... now get back up on the turnip wagon where you belong you dope... and keep Mark Levin company.
He is simply an in the Beltway RHINO and has power with those in power. Unfortunately for him, he is fast losing any credibility with anyone outside of the Beltway - ie the people.
That is good for Republicans since he and his minions have had power for way too long and continue to pursue to old style politics of and little bit less Democratic...
May he and his cohorts be disparaged in the next election...
My friends at FR, you all are missing the huge story. BHO has committed Social Security fraud. This is in the Book, “Where’s The Birth Certificate?” It is already a best seller.
Rove should STFU and go away. I’m not interested in anything that POS traitor has to say. His number one target for the past several years has been conservatives and, like the media, he gives Obama a pass on everything. Rove has never been elected to anything and doesn’t speak for anyone but his fat stupid self. I detest the basturd.
