Rove group slams Clinton on Benghazi in first 2016 attack ad
CBS ^ | 5/13/13

Posted on 05/13/2013 5:55:32 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

And they're off: With no defined field of candidates and the last election just six months in the rearview mirror, American Crossroads on Sunday aired the first attack ad of the 2016 presidential campaign, panning Hillary Clinton for her role in the "cover-up" of an attack last Sept. 11 on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The 90-second paid spot - manufactured by the Karl Rove-founded "super PAC" - was posted Friday online and ran Sunday morning on CBS during a broadcast of "Face the Nation." Previewing the ongoing saga that's likely to haunt Clinton's White House ambitions...

Karl Rove's atheism has made me reconsider supporting his PAC with my money.

Nevertheless, I APPLAUD anyone taking on the Murderess of Benghazi.

Too little too late:it was Rovian and establishment thinking, including on the part of the RR Campaign and the RNC, that failed on Benghazi during the campaign.

Karl Rove is doing the work the Obama and Hillary buttlicking media WON’T DO.

A fundraising ploy by Tokyo Rove and nothing more. The money he raises by bashing Hitlery will be used against conservatives in 2014.

More beltway sham, its the support system to these D politicians that must be deconstructed. If one day Obama or Clinton woke to find that their media blowhard propagandist stormtroopers had fled the field of battle because they were called out then the Wizards of the Whitehouse would be toast. But NO, hucksters like Rove play the game and allow the support system for the Ds to skate away unscathed. No money for Rove.

Rove could care less about Hitlery. His goal is to do what ever he can to raise money to pimp amnesty and bash conservatives.

Consider the source; CBS. A brother of the president of CBS is a national security official with the Obama regime.

Rove has helped Obama TWICE (two elections)
and is trying to make this saliently PARTISAN,
so that it will be dismissed.

Sorry Karl. You had your chance and proved your incompetence. You took over $100 million from conservatives in the last election cycle and spent it so incompetently that you might as well have thrown it in the furnace. Now you want more with this fundraising gimick? He must be a Dem plant.

Exactly right. Too late for last year’s election and way too soon for a 2016, especially with the short and feeble memories of low-info voters. Waste of money, IMO..

...Rove’s money raised will be used against Conservatives in 2014”.

I am SOOO done with ROVE. He ranks up there with the $^&#@ Grover Norquist, etc. They are NOT conservatives. Rove has become a legend in his own mind, found a way to garner $$$ out of this political game, has fooled us one too many times. Fools us once........ blah blah.

DONE with Tokyo Rove. He is the enemy too.

Rove can’t raise money by bashing conservatives.

Rove can’t raise money by pimping amnesty.

So how is he going to pay his bills?

By trotting out Hitlery Clinton...

His nose is growing.

Tokyo Rove is just doing this for fund-raising.

The best thing to do now is not let the investigations look partisan, because they aren't.

Levin is gone and it looks like Gary Peters will be the democrat candidate to replace Levin. Funny thing is that it looks like he's going to try to distance himself from the left to run.

Democrat U.S. Rep. Gary Peters Praises Michigan's GOP-Led Recovery (But then resorts back to Democratic talking points and says Michigan rebound because of auto bailout)

Finally.

I think I have the most established anti-Rove cred anywhere, but I must disagree with you on 1.5 of your two points. On fund raising: perhaps, but just because something is self serving, it doesn't necessarily disqualify it as a good thing. It is for fund raising, but this is a good things.

But MORE IMPORTANTLY: there is no no no no no way we won't be accused of being partisan. So what? They'll ALWAYS accuse us of "jumping up and down and screaming" (what Beschloss said this weekend) - regardless of how we tip toe into something. Thus, we might as well let her rip, because we'll be accused of that anyway.

With due respect, I submit that your hatred of Rove (understandable) is clouding your take on this. It is NEVER too early for ads. The reason we get beat is because we try and fight a full time war as if it is a temporary campaign. Face it, one problem with big government is that by definition, we are ALWAYS in campaign season. It's not a good thing, but we darn well better recognize it.

Tokyo Rove is having fundraising problems.

So if he needs to use Hitlery to keep the lights on, he’s going use her. Regardless of the consequences to the Congressional investigations.

Rove is desperate because his anti-conservative and pro-amnesty fundraising are flopping.
