Skip to comments.SESSIONS MOCKS, BLISTERS ROVE, 'FAT CAT' DONORS
Posted on 06/22/2013 1:09:45 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
On the Senate floor on Friday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) mocked and blistered Karl Rove and his "fat cat" and "country club" pals at American Crossroads for being out of touch with working class Americas on immigration.
Sessions, one of the staunchest opponents of the Senate's immigration bill, said Rove "raised a bunch of money for Crossroads to run ads in the last election that was supposed to elect Mr. Romney. Didn't do so well, Karl. Sorry about that. Wish you'd been more effective." American Crossroads wasted more $100 million last year and supported no winning candidates.
He suggested Rove and his "Crossroads guys" may have been more effective if they talked to regular people and discovered their opposition to amnesty.
"But the crew, the Crossroads guys that go to the country clubs and drink with each other and plot and think they know something about politics--and haven't been out talking to real people in decades--they thought they knew better," Sessions said. "And they've been telling us all how we're supposed to do this and what good politics is."
He said Rove recently said in an op-ed that, "it's important that Republicans avoid calling a 'pathway to citizenship' amnesty."

Rove, after backstabbing Gov. Palin and throwing the
Election of 2008 to Obama,
worked with Soros for Obama to destroy conservatives
and the throw the Election of 2012, also to Obama.
Fools are conservatives who trust the GOP led by Rove.
Go get ‘em Jeff! We are proud of you.
Hannity has this guy on his show far too much. He’s a political pimp who makes millions from his clients and leads them all down the road to defeat. It wouldn’t surprise me if this guy was on the DNC payroll.
This man fights for us! I am wishing a long life and many more years in the US Senate for Senator Jeff Sessions. The man who cannot be bought by the open borders Billionaire Boys club>>>
Which also includes the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson>>>>> Mega GOP contributors who have many Republicans becoming their immigration whores for campaign contributions. Sadly enough even Newt was susceptible. Adelson was his major backer in the primaries
I’m adopting Sen. Sessions as my senator.
Good job, Jeff. I can’t wait to hear Karl’s blubbering.
if I ever meet Rove, I’ll need bail money
Immigration bump for later....
You never know who is behind the curtain pulling the levers. I think some of the big corporate donors would just as gladly go over to the democrats if they could make a deal for their advantage.
This is what I am beginning to see about the Republicans, they are supported by big businesses and those businesses only care about their bottom line. They do not care about the country, they only care about their corporate profits. If they could make a deal with the democrats for some cut in taxes for themselves or they could get a big contract with the government, they would be perfectly happy getting it from the democrats as republicans. And I think there is a lot of *reaching across the aisle* when it comes to presidential elections, such as when the democrats have a popular encumbent, the republicans will give the election over to him by running a weak candidate against him.
Sessions has been my fav senator for years now. Low key and incredibly effective. If only we had 50+ more Jeff Sessions in the Senate (66 would be even better).
I shook Rove’s hand during the 2000 recount. I can’t wash the stench off.
American Crossroads wasted more $100 million last year and supported no winning candidates.
***That’s pretty stunning. It qualifies as an EPIC FAIL. CINOs have ruined the republican party.
Rove is an elitist establishment ass hole who I will never forgive after what he and his country club boys did to Sarah.
Sarah and Cruz please run and Sessions getting balls WOW, not if Hannity stopped giving time to his establishment pals
Hannity is an establishment shrill who cowers when it comes to conservative social issues like homosexual marriage or don’t ask.
I gave up on him after he refused to cover don’t ask
A Democrat message of big government is a losing message if you are running as a Republican.
Rove is stupid because stupidity is repeating the same thing time and again and expecting a different outcome.You cannot win an election by claiming to be a conservative and acting like a Democrat unless you happen to be one those established RINO senators like Juan, Goober......
Rove must be feared however, because he looks to be third or fourth in charge at the Fox News Channel just below Murdoch, Ailes and possibly O'Reilly.
That said Jeff Sessions has had a great week, mocking Rubio about some guy in a commercial pretending to be him.
And now scolding Tokyo Rove for lecturing Republicans on not using the term amnesty.
Senator Sessions is da bomb and right on target.
I want him on the Supreme Court! What a great Chief Justuce he would make.
“I am wishing a long life and many more years in the US Senate for Senator Jeff Sessions. “
He is 66 and up for election next year.
The country is burning and one man says it honesty about Karl Rove. Jeff Sessions is one cool man. I have always admired him. That is what a real patriot looks like.
“Rove recently said in an op-ed that, “it’s important that Republicans avoid calling a ‘pathway to citizenship’ amnesty.”
Rove also told Tom Tacredo never to “darken the doorstep of the White House” after Tancredo fought Jorge Bush on amnesty in 2002.
Bravo for Sessions. He’s naming names and kicking rear ends. No one is opposing the latest amnesty disaster more than Sessions.
Two people I dislike.
Perhaps Adelson was deliberately bankrolling Newt to help divide primary votes so Romney could win????????
Great idea, and I agree!
A most righteous smack down by Senator Sessions.
These bastards fear nothing. That has to change.
Don’t forget what he did to Christine O’Donnell on the very hour of her primary win.
I will never forgive the sonofabitch for that.
he;s a country club elitist who thinks of all this as a game as do the others like him on his side and the left
