Karl Rove-Backed American Crossroads Attacks GOP Candidate as "Perennial Loser"
Mother Jones ^ | Jun. 10, 2014 | Andy Kroll

Last year, American Crossroads, the super-PAC conceived of by Republican operative and fundraiser Karl Rove, hatched a plan: Inject itself into 2014 GOP primary races to protect incumbents from hard-line challengers in the mold of Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock who could cost the party winnable seats in Congress. Immediately, conservatives howled with outrage over an establishment group targeting tea partiers—Mike Huckabee called it "fratricide." The plan never got off the ground, and American Crossroads itself has largely shied away from picking primary fights.

But here's an exception: A brand-new Crossroads ad slams Matt Doheny, who's vying with Elise Stefanik to be the GOP nominee in New York's 21st congressional district, as a "perennial loser."

Rove calls others losers? How’s president Romney working out for him?

David Cornhole likes this story because it highlights an interparty fight.

Does Cornhole pay much attention to the Warren v. Hitlery battle going on in the DemonRAT party? Nope.

I watched the American Crossroads ad. Pretty weak.

I’d like to know more about the individual candidates involved, instead of what label they carry.

I’ve seen “Tea Party” hijacked as a label...and not applicable to the person or organization involved.

And I’ve seen “GOP-e” attached to people as a mark of shame, and that doesn’t always work either.

Just sayin’: we need to look at the PEOPLE, not the label.

Majority Leader Eric Cantor is infected with the cancer of BOEHNERISM.

An always present symptom of BOEHNERISM is that the infected Republican Politician ALWAYS Caves-In to whatever any Democrat Politician wants.

Replacing anyone in the US House Leadership who is terminally infected with the cancer of BOEHNERISM, in the words of President Ronald Reagan: “- - - wouldn’t make any sense at all.”

Ain't that the truth. As conservatives, I don't know that we've got a dog in any pissing contest between Mother Jones and Karl Rove.

Anybody from NY-21 that can elucidate us???
