Donald Trump has slammed Karl Rove as “the most over-rated person in politics” claiming the Republican strategist’s attack ads on actress Ashley Judd have increased her chances of winning a senate seat.

“This is the same mind that spent $400 million and didn’t win a race. He’s the most overrated person in politics,” Trump said during a press conference following his Friday morning speech at CPAC 2013.

Judd is widely expected to launch a bid for the Democratic nomination for the senate seat in Kentucky where she would take on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2014 if she was successful. …

While Trump himself is pretty overrated I gotta agree with him on Rove.

Trump: Rove ‘The Most Overrated MEN in Politics’

I think that’s more accurate.

I give Trump a lot of credit. He’s says exactly what he believes, and he’s not afraid to offend the delicate sensibilities of the ruling class.

Maybe. But The Donald is giving Rove a run for his money in that area.

You may not like Trump—but in this case he is spot on. Rove did as much as Obama to ensure a Romney defeat. Time for Rove to retire.

I don’t know what Ashley Judd’s rating is for her qualification(s) to be a US Senator, but whatever it is it’s overrated.

don’t read me wrong. I enjoy the Trump when he is on, tho I don’t watch his show, this makes up for all the time he’s off.. Rove is a FauX Golden Child.. time to move on.. put him out to pasture on W’s ranch.

“from one carnival barker to another, that’s a heck of a compliment in a way.”

Hey, at least Trump operates on his own money, unlike Rove and his pal Grover Norquist & the crooks running CPAC who operate on ours by collusion and corruption.

It’s all on this thread.

Thanks!

collusion and corruption .. it’s made a lot of folk a lot of dough .. and sent many to prison.. and worse.

If there is a political purgatory, Karl and Grover won’t be alone.

How Norquist has managed to escape prison is beyond me. He’s laundered more money than the Fed. He makes his old pal Jack Abramoff look like a choirboy.

BTW...did you see where Rove’s crossroads pac gave Norquist FOUR million $ last year?
[snip]“And he’s [Norquist] personally doing fine: Lee Fang at the Nation revealed this week that he gets two-thirds of his funding from two big corporate billionaire-backed nonprofits: the Center to Protect Patients Rights, which donated $4,189,000 to Americans for Tax Reform in 2010, and Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS, which gave him $4 million.”

http://www.salon.com/2012/11/28/grover_gets_weird/

Rove is working to destroy the tea party while Grover and his CPAC groups have hijacked the tea party label for their own use and in my opinion to discredit it under the name of teaparty.net & TPNN.

[snip]”Karl Rove has founded a new group designed not to beat Democrats, but to destroy a wing of his own coalition: the Tea Party. The newly-formed Conservative Victory Project, an “offshoot” of Rove’s American Crossroads super PAC, is designed to pump big money into local congressional primaries and prevent Tea Party-endorsed candidates from scoring Senate nominations.”

I can't think of anything good to say about Rove, until now. If combover boy dislikes him that much, Rove must have some redeeming characteristic, somewhere.

Memory Lane;

<First He was..>

Rove you Magnificent B@stard.

<Then he was demoted to >

Tokyo Rove.

My own opinion all along was that the traitor gave us a democratic house and senate to go along with the mushy Bush, the younger. You remember him right? The guy who said he must destroy Capitalism in order to save it.

He did build the fence though, twice.</sarcasm>
