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.
