Skip to comments.Rove: Obama a ‘Minor Actor’ in DC as His Power Wanes
Posted on 03/28/2013 12:31:04 PM PDT by Olog-hai
President Barack Obamas influence is disappearing to the point that he is just a minor actor on Capitol Hill and even Democrats believe he is doing little but get in the way, Karl Rove has charged.
No president is ever irrelevant, but less than 10 weeks into his second term Mr. Obamas power is waning, Rove writes in Thursdays Wall Street Journal. Even members of his own party view him as an obstacle to getting things done.

It’s a mistake to underestimate Obama...
lol. I guess that means you need a microscope to find Rove’s.
In a just world, Rove would be standing on a streetcorner with a cardboard sign begging for handouts. Instead, he sits in a fancy office with fancy clothes, spouting nonsense and — begging for handouts.
If Rove believes that to be true I am worried.
But, but, but, this was written by Karl Rove. He's the smartest man alive. Ask him. He'll tell you. I mean Didn't he win the popular vote for W in 2000? (ummm No.) Didn't he crush that feminine, anti-American Traitor John Kerry in 2004 after having spent over $1 billion dollars? (ummm No.) Didn't he destroy the Nancy Pelosi led Congress in 2006 and bring about a Conservative resurgence? (ummmm No again!)....
Karl Rove is full of sh*t.
Obama is not waning by any meahs. He is eading the gun confiscation battle, he is winning the Obamacare battle, He is telling the Democrats what to do and they are doing it.
Where does Rove come up with this BS.
Anyway, Rove's remark is a starting point to demonstrate the opposite of what Rove says.
I can see it now:
“Will Manage Your Campaign For Food”
Perhaps, but it is also a mistake to overestimate him, remember this the man that wasted 18 months pushing through a healthcare plan when he should have been able to ram it through in a month considering his party held a filibuster proof majority in the Senate and a huge majority in the house. Then he spent the last year and a half trying to push through a "jobs bill" that seems of late to have simply been forgotten. Now he is trying for a gun bill, which his own party seems to be lukewarm about at best.
Obama might not be Jimmy Carter, but sure as heck isn't Lincoln either...
If any one of those senators tells you they did not vote to fund Obamacare or, in fact, voted against funding Obamacare, they are being mendacious. They may have voted for Ted Cruzs amendment, but after it failed, they still knowingly and willingly voted to fund Obamacare. And now they are lying to their constituents who call them out on it.
Many of these same Senators are also supporting separate legislation to foist a massive tax increase on the American people.
As George Bushes’ adviser, Rove had his chance to help turn the country away from a self destructive path.
But he did just the opposite.
If Dubya have governed as a conservative, or even as a responsible, small government republican, Barack Obama would not be in the White House today.
He would be back to working as a communist organizer in Chicago, scamming little old black ladies out of their government handouts.
“But, but, but, this was written by Karl Rove. He’s the smartest man alive. Ask him. He’ll tell you.”
I’ve also heard that Barack Obama is the smartest man alive. They can’t BOTH be the smartest man alive.
And frankly, I doubt that EITHER of them is, although Obama was apparently clever enough to convince a lot of people that he’s on their side.
The whole damn country is racing down the sewer and being “transformed” according to Obama’s plans, via Obamacare, amnesty, and fag marriage... and Rove just looks at all this through some kind of political beltway game in which Obama is a “minor actor?”
I absolutely LOATHE Rove. Hope the scumbag goes to sleep tonight and drowns to death in his vomit. He’s practically as much a player in the country’s demise as Obama.
Sorry. Rove is not that clever.
Obama is LOSING the fun control battle you mean.
Sure he’S frantically trying to talk up the issue but it can’T pass even in a Den controlled senate.
Obama isn’t going to be able to use the lib mantra on spending nearly as much anymore now that sequester is in place. Without that dems have far less power to demagogue. Its going to be an interesting 4 years.
“We have nothing to fear with Barack Obama in the White House.”
McCain and Rove think alike.
I think Rove is trying to make himself a darling of the base again.
I am sad to hear he is not a believer.
and a bigger one to give Rove any credibility.
“Its going to be an interesting 4 years.”
3 years, 10 months ... but who’s counting ;-)?!
This coming from a really important big shot. /sarc
Karl Rove is “PROJECTING”... it is HIS power in Washington D.C. that is “waning”...
He has become a “stink” in conservative noses and the white stripe on his back is showing.. i.e. skunk..
Karl and Francois Kerry have become the “Laurel and Hardy” of Washington..
But if he's right, we won't know or be able or willing to say or admit for years.
And if he's right, it may not even be for the right reason.
It may just be more Washington positioning games, rather than a thoughtful observation or reflection.
I’ve never understood attributing supernatural powers to Soros’ bumbling house boy.
Minor actor? Pot, meet kettle.
He is telling the Democrats what to do and they are doing it.”
BO is also telling the Republicans what to do and they are doing it.
We soon will have no medical care, no guns, 20 million more people looking for work because of all our new “citizens”, people can marry whomever and whatever they want, all children will become the property of the Government, and the list goes on and on.
He is a drama queen though, and his remark could easily be designed as nothing more than a needle under Obama’s skin. And, while he’s doing that, he (Rove) gets some press for himself. No such thing as bad press, etc.
People confuse glibness with intelligence, a belief encourage by the media.
A microscope, a tweezer and some kind of separator to hold apart his rolls of fat.
Read between the Lines Karl Rove - I need a job I am hungry. Please hire me. I am a DC insider and no one will hire me. There is the answer. Unless Karl Rove has decided to use the Saul Alinsky Textbook Ridicule Obama.
“Its a mistake to underestimate Obama...”
Indeed. He has quite a groupie fan base including the MSM.
I've always preferred "Dome and Domer."
“Obama: Rove a Minor Actor in DC as His Power Wanes”
lol. I guess that means you need a microscope to find Roves.
Or perhaps the CERN Accelerator since Rove may be approaching sub-atomic size (other than his head)?
It's written on one of those lame Hannity footballs that Rove catches for his night job.
I agree completely.
Rove is as much an enemy of our Republic as Obama.
Why does Rove think he has any credibility after this last election?
Obama is not a "minor player" now as Rove falsely states....nor will he be one in the near future. He's a dedicated communist and will not sit around sucking his thumb for the remainder of his term in office.
Communists never rest on their laurels. They never abandon their agenda. He's been very successful so far in getting embedded much of the wealth re-distribution and nationalization projects he embarked upon almost five years ago. He'll be a danger to this Republic up till the last day of his final presidential years.....and no doubt even on his last day he'll pardon every terrorist we hold in captivity plus all his traitorous and corrupt political cronies lolling in Club Feds across the fruited plain.
Remember 'executive orders'.....stroke of the pen, law of the land. With this authority he can wreak havoc till his last moments in the White House implementing only his busy little writing pen.
BS Rove, the little turd bastid is a member of the GOP inc. As such he has a ticket to the DC games and will never leave. He has become as much a parasite as McCain or Schumer. He is the go to expert for the low-brow Hannity and bloviating O’Reilly.
Karl Rove's Guaranteed Weight Loss Plan
The big Dem push is to reclaim the House in 2014 to pass things that didn’t make it through in 09-10 (cap n tax, card check, etc).
That’s why the MSM is pushing hard on the “happy days are here again” economy story, stock market record levels, real estate, etc.
The minute rove come on TV, I flip the channel.
And he knows he's got to use it before the next election, because that is when the chickens of Obamacare are going to come home to roost. (to borrow a "Farrakan-ism")
It may be that is what Rove wants us to believe... When do you believe Generalissimo Ob@ma's 'last moments in the White House' might be? :-/
