Karl Rove: GOP Has Strong 'Cast of Characters' to Win Back Senate
Newsmax ^ | March 16, 2014

GOP strategist Karl Rove is joining the growing list of pundits who believe their party will take over the Senate in November.

"It’s highly likely that Republicans pick up the majority," Rove said on "Fox News Sunday."

Rove pointed out that many Democratic senators are retiring and President Barack Obama has low approval ratings in red states where Democratic incumbents are seeking re-election. He also said new GOP candidates such as Rep. Cory Gardner in Colorado and former Sen. Scott Brown in New Hampshire, offer hope.

And what will happen with Mcconnell as majority leader? The incompetence happening with him as minority leader.

No kidding. With predictions like this, then we are screwed. Furthermore, the GOP is the stupid party. The prescription for victory is to run against failed Obamacare and the bad Obama economy. The recent Jolly race is evidence of that. However, I see them doing stupid stuff such as insulting their base and running on amnesty.

Didn’t Karl Rove argue FL and OH were Romney pick ups on Election Night?

He had egg on his face after it was all over.

The GOP shouldn’t be overconfident. Obama ran them out of town in 2012.

“And what will happen with Mcconnell as majority leader? The incompetence happening with him as minority leader.”
******************************************************************

My expectation is that McConnell will NOT be returning to the Senate in January 2015—he’ll either lose the primary (not likely) or lose the general election. And he’ll be forever etched in our memories as a despicable piece of self-centered garbage.

If people who meet Karl Rove’s specifications are going to get elected then it would be no victory at all.

Glad you think so, Rove. Now are you still trying to recruit Dave "debt ceiling" Camp to run because you aren't a Terri Lynn Land (who won statewide twice) fan?

Smooth sailing for Obama's last two years with Yertle the Turtle running things!

Huh. And here I thought the GOP had about a 60-40 shot at taking back the Senate. Guess the Dems keep it now that the “genius” Rove has weighed in.

He was probably too busy counting Romney votes.

Really? I couldn't listen to Cornyn's ads proclaming he is against Obama's spending all the while he voted for cloture. I'm not voting for Cornyn, I can't vote for a liar!

If the repubs win majority, I’d bet they do “power share” again. Feckless fools.

“First Woman Majority Leader!!!” Susan Collins will make us wish he was back.

Yes, I’m serious. If we don’t get a couple more conservatives in November the RINOs will definitely give her the Leadership.

The upside of the gopE taking control of the senate will be not having to see that smug Harry Reid talking trash.

We have the same thing here in Kentucky. McConnell is running ads saying he is a Conservative while he tells the NYT he wants to crush Conservatives

Then you will be voting for the Dem, but I guess you will tell yourself all kinds of BS in order to sleep at night.

Well, is his conservative opponent using his comments against him in an attack ad? If not, why?
