Karl Rove won’t get involved in Wyoming Cheney-Enzi fight
Daily Caller ^ | 7/19/13 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 07/20/2013 3:39:53 PM PDT by jimbo123

Former Bush strategist Karl Rove says he’s staying out of Wyoming’s Republican U.S. Senate primary between incumbent Mike Enzi and newly-announced challenger Liz Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

“Liz is a friend of mine,” Rove told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday. “I also respect Sen. Enzi. This is going to be up to the people of Wyoming. They don’t need a Texan coming in there, and I grew up in the mountain west and you and I both know — particularly in the Rocky Mountain states and small states like Wyoming — they know everybody and want to make up their own minds about it.”

Rove has been criticized in recent months for his involvement with the Conservative Victory Project, which has been described as an effort to elect “establishment Republican candidates” over more conservative challengers.

Not a surprise.

Good news is that Tokyo Rove's Amnesty advertising campaign was a total flop and waste of his donors' funds.

And both of his Super Pacs are failing to raise anywhere near the amount of money he needs.

$100,000 advertising campaigns won't get you anywhere, Tokyo!

He won’t get involved openly because he knows it would wreck whoever he’s backing. However that doesn’t mean the race will be free of his oozing manipulations in the background.

“Liz a friend”

“respect Enzi”

I’d decode that as favoring Cheney, but staying out lest he taint her needlessly.

He’s right about people up there resenting outsiders who attempt to try to gain power in their territory.

Come to think of it, that sort of describes Liz Cheney, who wasn’t born there, hasn’t lived there as an adult, didn’t go to school there.

Just dropping in from DC to Jackson has a severe elitist taint to it.

Her father has Wyoming bona fides and she doesn’t.

Rove shutting up is always good for conservatism.

This douchebag is single-handedly responsible for every single bad thing that has happened to REAL conservatism in the last decade.

Liz Cheney supports Amnesty and Homo Marriage. So I think we all know who Tokyo Rove is really supporting.

Absolutely. He may not get his fingerprints on it directly, but you know he will be involved behind the scenes.

“They don’t need a Texan coming in there”

Yet for some reason other states do? Take your money and shove it where the sun don’t shine, Tokyo Rove.

Liz Cheney supports Amnesty and Homo Marriage.

And her Dad thinks it's treason to point out that the Federal government is collecting our phone and Internet records. Used to admire the Cheneys.

Way over that.

Who cares? Worked for Hillary in NY who didn't even have ties............

with that being said, I suspect Ms. Cheney is far more conservative than the proven Rino Enzi..

The people in Wyoming know Cheney and have supported him throughout his career. There's no reason for them not to support his daughter........

When has Liz Cheney supported amnesty?

From The Daily Caller:

Q: Would you have voted for the Gang of 8's immigration bill?

Liz Cheney:
I wouldn’t have voted for it. I think that there were too many good amendments, for example, that were not accepted, such as those offered by Sen. Cruz, that would have provided much more insurance in terms of border security. I am not comfortable with leaving so much discretion in the hands of the secretary for Homeland Security – to decide whether to carry out those provisions of the bill. And I think the bill as it stands now doesn’t deal with the most important issue we’ve got to address first, which is to secure the border.

Thanks very much.
I didn’t remember her being for amnesty.
Homosexual marriage, yes, but not amnesty.

Actually, her mother, Lynne, has much stronger Wyoming bona fides.

Dick moved to Wyoming with his parents when he was in high school. Lynne was born here.

You forgot one new item for his CV: Rubio’s chief of staff.

He was also assistant to Dick Cheney while he was VP.

He’s a snake in the grass. And he’s hip-by-jowl with the Cheneys.

Another reason to dispense with Lizzie’s senate bid.

Rove...what the hell is his win/loss record?

In the case of Wyoming....must be looking for a win/win by staying out of the way.

It does surprise me because I’ve always suspected that Rove is a bit fruity and Liz is a big supporter of the homosexual agenda.

Please show me any link to any statement Liz Cheney ever made on amnesty/immigration any reference. I have looked for hours and gone over dozens of links and can’t find anything I sure would appreciate it.

I too would lover to see Lynn win this fight mostly because the party needs good conservative leadership.She has the potential to be a national leader. I never heard of Enzi. My one caveat is that I don’t want to be Marcoed again.
If Liz is weak on immigration especially a border fence I want to find out now.
