Tea party activists bomb email list of Crossroads donors
CNN ^ | Mar. 14, 2013 | Paul Steinhauser and CNN's Ashley Killough

Posted on 03/14/2013 12:34:38 PM PDT by AuntB

About 200 donors on the email distribution list for Karl Rove's group "American Crossroads" may be receiving an interesting message Thursday: Don't donate to American Crossroads.

Conservative activist Brent Bozell, chairman of the group ForAmerica, obtained the distribution list and plans to send a letter blasting Crossroads' role in last year's election and the creation of its new independent group for the 2014 mid-term elections.

Rove, the former top political adviser to President George W. Bush, generated strong pushback from tea party groups earlier this year when he announced the formation of another offshoot, "Conservative Victory Project," dedicated to helping electable candidates sail through Republican primaries

"Mr. Rove and his allies must stop blaming conservatives for his disastrous results," the email read. "It is time for him to take ownership of his record. He must also stop posturing himself as a conservative: his record supporting wasteful government spending and moderate candidates over conservatives spans decades."

Leaders from other conservative and tea party groups–including Tea Party Patriots, Family Research Council, Tea Party Express–co-signed the letter, which went to donors who've made six- or seven-figure contributions to Crossroads.

During the last cycle, American Crossroads and its non-profit arm, Crossroads GPS, spent more than $104 million on federal elections with a success rate of 1.3%, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Regardless of its success rate in 2012, Crossroads played a major role in the election and in the 2010 mid-terms, when Republicans took back the House of Representatives.

These Tea Party groups need to PUBLICLY denounce the groups using the tea party label to confuse conservatives and raise money for their own causes...one likely being to destroy the tea party movement since they work with ROVE. They should be more worried about where Rove's pac money is going, than who gives it.

Rove's pac gave $4million to Grover Norquist/ATR who with his CPAC henchmen have hijacked the tea party label under teaparty.net & TPNN to DESTROY it! They are k st lobbyists only interested in their own pocket books. Rove & Norquist are joined at the hip! Norquist wrote the Bush Amnesty and brought in radical islamists into the Bush white house at Rove's behest!

What a horrible waste of time and money. Why not save this kind of hatred for Democrats? Some of what had been said about Rove and Congressman King turned out to be false. Use this energy to attack Obamacare.

“What a horrible waste of time and money. Why not save this kind of hatred for Democrats? Some of what had been said about Rove and Congressman King turned out to be false. Use this energy to attack Obamacare.”

And YOU are the voter these guys just love! Do you understand Rove, Norquist, Al Cardenas who have cooped the tea party label & CPAC are the enemy within? How do we fight Obama when WORSE is going on in our own ranks.

Some of us are trying to WARN you! People like you are the tories who would have just as soon shot Paul Revere off his horse!

Now, try to soak some of this in, this nation depends on it.
It takes some time and work, which is why most people won’t get it!

There ya go! Perfect example. And ALL their candidates will be squishy open border hacks!

Cuban born Al Cardenas (endorses gang of 8 amnesty), head of ACU, along with Grover Norquist run CPAC and are using the tea party label under teaparty.net & TPNN to further THEIR GOALS. THIS is the enemy within!

What has Rove accomplished? He barely beat Gore, and if it wasn’t for the Swift Boat Vets, he’d could have lost to Kerry. Rove is not a king maker. He’s no friend of Conservatives.

Exactly! Many conservatives hold Grover Norquist as an icon because he uses all the right words with his Americans for Tax reform...but the same question...WHAT in all these years has he accomplished...show me anything other than fund raising and laundering money from one non profit to the other.

Did you see the checks that Pam Geller found, where a convicted radical islamist wrote to Grover Norquist’s Islamic Institute?

When you state that Republicans are worse than Democrats, you've lost all credibility. You are wrong!!!

This website has gone nuts. Why not change the name to Anti-Republican rather than Free Republic? This website has brainwashed a whole bunch of good folks where they have lost all ability to think logically.

CPAC didn't ban talk of Islam, it was on this am. Even if they had excluded talk of Islam, so what? They still have plenty of very good speakers, so what would be your point?

What do you want us to do? Vote Democrat?

“When you state that Republicans are worse than Democrats, you’ve lost all credibility. You are wrong!!!”

THAT is NOT what I said. YOU are dishonest. You sound like a democrat...defending the indefensible. People like you are why the right is being destroyed from within.

What I said was”How do we fight Obama when WORSE is going on in our own ranks.”

We can’t beat the left when our side is being destroyed!
WHO will fight them when we are wiped out by OUR OWN????

HMMM??? THINK for a change instead of getting emotional with your panties in a wad

I’m a great grandmother too, but I’m not senile!

The name Free Republic has nothing to do with Republicans.
It is a name that describes Liberty and our type of government. A Republic. We are not a democracy but a Republic.

How do we fight Obama when WORSE is going on in our own ranks.This is your quote. Doesn't that mean that Republicans are worse than Democrats?

You know what I want? I want ALL of us to get on the same page and aim all our fire at Democrats. They deserve it. Obama deserves it. I cannot even come up with words to describe Obama and what he is doing to this country and all I see on FR any more is vitriol toward other Republicans. It has been interesting watching it but it is destructive. Our ire MUST be directed at Democrats.

I have no idea what Republicans you like--if any, but I view Obama and Democrats to be so evil, any Republican has to be far superior to any Democrat.

You go right ahead and do what you want. I’ll attack corruption where ever I see it. You bury your head in the sand if you want. It’s not your job to tell me what to do. And what are you doing besides pissing and moaning at those of us who do something???

Done with you, you’re a waste of time.

I am buoyed by the quality of those speaking at CPAC. We have a great bench coming up. We must focus like a laser on the real enemies of this republic—Democrats!!! Today, Cruz gave idiot Feinstein a primer on the Constitution. I loved it. Now, Rubio is giving a great speech. Perry was great today. Paul was great. We have a great team. Rejoice and declare war on Democrats, liberalism, Obama and Obamacare.
