Karl Rove to GOP: Work with Obama
politico.com ^ | Sarah Smith

Posted on 07/10/2014 4:33:51 PM PDT by cotton1706

Unlike many of his Republican colleagues, Karl Rove advocated Thursday for bipartisan compromise on immigration.

“Republicans have to look at this as an opportunity that they have to work,” the Republican strategist said on the Fox News program “Happening Now.”

“It’s an opportunity to get some things done to help secure the border.”

He suggested that in working with President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion request for additional funds to deal with the current immigration crisis, Republicans could make policy gains like increasing the amount of border patrols.

“They ought to sit down in good faith,” he said of Republicans and the administration.

For Obama’s part, Rove recommended flexibility on what the president expected Congress to give him.

“I hope the president isn’t stuck in the mud on, ‘I have to have $3.7 billion,’ and the Republicans shouldn’t feel compelled to give it to him.”

More border patrols that would be ORDERED not to act, or to help the illegals, as they have been!

We're not falling for this anymore Karl.

good faith?

We are supposed to trust a president who has no regard for the rule of law, to enforce some meaningless compromise he uses to give more handouts at the expense of the U S taxpayer. Rove thinks ALL americans are as dumb as the ones that elected Obama....twice.

He is wrong.

Of course he does. Treason has never been unacceptable to Karl Rove.

Who made this jackass the spokesman for everyone especially conservatives in the GOP? His meddling and W’s meddling in what would have been Conservative wins instead either being lost to DEMs or won by RINO’s are half of what got us to this point. I’m more than sick and tired of FOX News parading him and John McAmnesty on TV day after day up to several times a day in some cases. I’ve had enough of Rove and enough Rove’s GOP-E politics. Your policies the ones you lobby for are screwing our beloved nation over Mr. Rove and were sick and tired of it.

Comprehensive immigration reform MUST include:

1. Closing borders effectively meaning no one is able to cross the border illegally. There must be milestones to be satisfied before gong to step 2. below.

2. All illegals are placed at the end of line of foreigners waiting for permanent residence status in US.

Anything else is unacceptable to me.

$3.7 Billion over 1954 miles of the Tex-Mex border gives about $1.9 Million per mile.

That should be a good start on the fence. One the fence is up, we can talk.

The reason Tokyo Rove spells his "Karl" with a "K" is because he was named after Karl Marx.

Rove knows that this could be the Trojan Horse the amnesty supporters want. The Senate and the House pass Obama's bill and then add all kinds of things during the conference process. The result is comprehensive immigration reform, which is what Obama and Rove have wanted all along.

Rove is a snake.

The GOP left needs to get over its crush on illegals and amnesty. It’s not a romance that will help them, and we are seeing just how bad it can be for this country. Rove and the Bushefellers need to do this country a big favor, and go away. I hear Central American countries have lots of room for them, and they can enjoy the cultures they want to implant here.

Not too long ago, Rove was known around F.R. as, “Magnificent Bastard” .

Oh well, he’s retained half of that title.

"... Karl Rove advocated Thursday for bipartisan compromise on immigration."
FR: Never Accept the Premise of Your Opponent’s Argument

If Obama guard dog Karl Rove wants GOP to work with Obama on immigration then he first needs to do the following.

Since the states have never delegated to the feds, expressly via the Constitution, the specific power to regulate immigration, immigration a 10th Amendment-protected state power issue, Rove needs to encourage Congress to propose an immigration amendment to the Constitution to the states. And if the states choose to ratify Rove's amendment then the feds will have the power to regulate immigration and Rove will be a hero.

Laura Ingraham downplaying a Ted Cruz run in 2016. Apparently the establishment would ‘crush’ him in Florida. Has she been hanging with Ann Coulter?

GOPIGGY strategerist and surrender artist extraordinaire Karl Rove, lavishly compensated servant of the U.S. Chamber of Crony Corruption, campaign manager to the Demonrats Lite, suggests working with Comrade Obozo. What a surprise!

Next the GOPIGGY will suggest sensible policies like adopting a maximum wage of 50 cents an hour in blue collar occupations to replace current minimum wage laws along with minimum interest rates, say 10%, to be charged by banks on home mortgages and consumer loans, 25% on credit cards, and a maximum rate on savings accounts of, say minus 1%. The peasants should consider themselves honored for their lordships to be accepting their deposits.

Are they serious? Rove is just the mouthpiece for the entire freakin Republican Establishment. They all advocate caving in on amnesty.
