Karl Rove hits Rand Paul for Bill Clinton bashing (always protect the democrats!)
politico.com ^ | 2/11/14 | Natalie Villacorta

Posted on 02/11/2014 8:59:06 AM PST by cotton1706

Karl Rove took a shot at Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday for attacking Bill Clinton over his “predatory” behavior toward Monica Lewinsky, saying that it’s not good strategy for running for president.

“Frankly, Rand Paul spending a lot of time talking about the mistakes of Bill Clinton does not look like a big agenda for the future of the country,” Rove said on Fox’s “America’s Newsroom.”

Rove said that candidates for the presidency need to do two things in 2014: make their campaigns about something larger their personal ambitions and strengthen their skills.

“I’m not certain, again, that beating up on Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky is a particularly good thing to strengthen your skills,” Rove said.

Now I know none of us give a damn what Karl Rove says, but isn't it telling that conservatives can always be bashed to the hilt but democrats must get a light touch and be protected.

Rove, one guy I sure would not wish to be in foxhole with. He would probably think that shooting at the enemy was not the thing to do and probably shoot me.

That, and the fact that DemocRATS attack Republicans non-stop; but Rove doesn’t seem to be worried about that.

Bill Clinton has no expertise to offer, only his personal charm for deal making. Clinton should be castigated every time he makes a public appearance.

Rove is a snake.

Rand's comments are more directed toward the next Donk presidential candidate. Rove doesn't understand that.

Keep it up Karl!

We want you to isolate the RINOs from us.

Please give NO reason to vote for any RINOs!

I read it because I know the establishment reads it. It’s a window into how they think.

Giving this idiot a soapbox is one of the many reasons FOX is NOT “Fair and Balanced” and why we need better coverage of events by The Blaze to challenge them for a conservative audience.

Clinton and Hillary told the press Monica and her mother were ‘unstable’ - mentally ill. The two had the ‘sluts and nuts’ attacks down pat and used them against women who had been used and were ready to be discarded.

The fact that Rove doesn’t see this - that he thinks it’s ‘just sex’ makes him a fool. It’s time for him to join up with democrats and he can take Rubio with him. Our side has nothing to lose with these two gone..

It would seem that Rove is the one who convinced Bush that it was better to sit quietly while he was unfairly attacked in the media.

Brilliant strategy on Rove's part! /sarc

Bush was blamed for EVERYTHING by the Democrats and the MSM. And not a whimper out of him in his own defense..

Roves RINOs and The Obama Campaign are in cahoots to terminate the Tea Party. Likely Rove and the Dems have collaborated to keep the Tea Party and Conservatives from fund raising by sicking the IRS on conservative groups.

ROVE is as much a tyrant as Obama, he is just another fascist in waiting.

Rove needs to just GO HOME and CHUT UP! Yes thats “CHUT UP!”

The only diff between Bubba and the Dork is that Bubba is a much more likeable liar and grifter.

Oh, forgot, Bubba actually can prove where he was born and where he went to school...although schooling apparently didn’t take on either POS. I’ll guaran-d*mn_tee that the Obamadork couldn’t pass a high school course in anything.

None of us give a damn what Karl Rove says

This is telling. RINOs do nothing to save constitutional conservatives from unfair attacks from the dems about women's rights issues. Meanwhile, we should not comment about Clinton's abuse of a much younger employee and hillary's abetting it?

It s**** that we can probably win the presidency with a Cruz/RandPaul ticket, but first have to defeat the RINO globalist backstabbers.

Karl, whose payroll are you on? Looks like Hillary’s. FYI Jerkwad, the dems declare that we have a war on women, yet, your buddies Bill and Hill rape, assault and molest women. What a standard the heads of the Dem Party are setting for us women! So glad you agree with their standard! IOW Jerkwad, STFU!

Texan's need to kick Lieutenant Governor "Dirty" David Dewhurst to the curb as well.

Texans should never forget the dirty campaign he ran against Ted Cruz to replace Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson.

Jerry Patterson or Dan Patrick are viable alternatives, don't know Todd Staples but I'm sure he's better than Dewhurst.

I wonder if Rand Paul will fire back at Rove. Paul doesn’t usually just take this kind of thing. I think we might see a counter-punch; maybe something about Rove siding with the Clintons.
