Not an endorsement, but food for thought
Ok. He's ugly too.
I left the R’s when they controlled the two branches and still spent like drunken sailors. It seems with every news article I read about the party’s vision, I feel more vindicated.
That's exactly the problem with Rove & Co.
Maybe Karl Rove Has a Point...yeah, on his head.
Maybe Karl Rove Has a Point
Yeah, check the top of his head!
“Human Events” is a RINO/GOP-e SUCK A$$ RAG!
I believe in the Constitution as it was written by our Founding Fathers.
I am a Christian who believes Our Nation was founded by Christian men who warned future generations that failure to abide by Christian teachings would be our downfall.
If that makes me a fanatic, so be it.
“Lets put ideology aside for a moment”, couldn’t EVEN get it right from the first sentence.
I'm sick of socialists, progressives and liberals destroying the country and the constitution.
I am sick of women killing their babies at the altar of 'Choice'
I am sick of RINOs who are little different from the socialists, progressives and liberals destroying the country
We need strong conservatives to take back our party and the country.
To see one look in a mirror Karl.
We, as conservatives, have let ideology cloud our judgement a bit here and there.
Don't get me wrong, we need rock solid true conservatives, but we do also need to make sure they are not amateur gynecologists or part time witches.
The author's point is solid. However, Rove's solution of looking for media savvy ideologically milquetoast pretty boys is capitulation.
All the media has to do is omit or take a word or two out of context, or ignore context, and presto - the 'wacko' narrative.
No, if the GOP wishes to begin win more elections they're going to have to fight, persuade, lead. There is no substitute.
BFD. He turned what should have been two run away wins into an extra inning affair and a late inning come back.
And thanks to the "New Tone" crap helped usher in what will be at least an eight year march to the destruction of this Republic.
Rove put his stamp of approval on the doddering Tommy Thompson, helping him defeat Eric Hovde in the primary. Hovde would have made mincemeat of Baldwin, but he was determined to be "too risky and unproven".
I have mixed feelings about this. On the on e hand, I am a Conservative and want to see true conservatives in the Senate. On the other hand, it is important that the candidate nominated can beat the Democrat. In the last 2 election cycles, the Republicans threw away winnable Senate seats, notably Harry Reid’s seat in Nevada in 2010 as well as the Maryland seat that same year. In 2012, they lost seats they should have won in Indiana and Missouri. I probably have missed a few, but because of fielding unelectable candidates, they most likely forfeited the Senate Majority to Harry Reid and his gang. They have a real possibility of winning the Majority in 2014, but if they don’t have strong candidates we will get more of the same.
Bottom line. When someone like Rove brings up Akin, McDonnell and Angle, but ignores the stories behind Crist/Rubio and Cruz/Dewhurst, etc.
There is no guarantee with any one candidate, and pointing out one or two losses while ignoring a historic wave election is dishonest and disingenuous. 2010 was the biggest year on record for our party, and lot were underdogs in the primaries. I, for one, and thrilled with that class of freshman, as we had more true conservatives, more business people, and more ‘real people’ elected than any other year in my lifetime.
The DC idiots will signal out a loss in NV as proof that the base can’t select a candidate, but they ignore that we lost easy pickups in CO that year, and a slew of easy Senate pickups in 2012 from ‘safe’ candidates.
Impeach Rove (so to speak). Get him off the air now.
Well you have to admit, we’d be much better off if Christine O’Donnell, Sharon Angle, Todd Akin, and Richard Mourdock hadn’t been nominated. They all took lead pipe cinches for the R’s, and gave them to the D’s.
And yes, the people they beat for the nominations weren’t as conservative. However, if you want to be a purist, then don’t complain when your party is perpetually in the minority.
Karl Rove picker more losers and drove opportunity into the ground and wasted more money than ANY conservative candidate he can mention.
In fact, he is directly responsible for the loss in the Missouri Senate Race.
He led the piling on by republicans, something that democrats NEVER would have done.
