Rove lays the SMACKDOWN on Colmes (Video)
Youtube ^

Posted on 09/18/2008 7:45:07 AM PDT by ConservativeMan55

Colmes: I don't know how John McCain and Sarah Palin present themselves as reformers. she took oil money when she ran for Lt. Governor. John McCain has oil lobbyists.
Rick Davis who's campaign manager..

Rove: You know Alan..

Colmes: was a lobbyist..

Rove: Alan with all due respect you can rattle on all you want about this. But if this is the standard then you have to tell me why Tom Daschle is in charge of the transition for Senator Obama?
And why Jim Johnson the former head of Fannie Mae was the head of his Vice Presidential Search Committee?
And why is Franklin Raines one of his close advisors?
We can get in this tit for tat all day long.

Colmes: But Karl..?

Rove: The fact of the matter is John McCain are reform minded mavericks and the American people see them as such.

Colmes So all candidates have oil related lobbyists? They all have people in the financial community running their campaigns?
McCain has more lobbysists.. McCain..

Rove Look Alan. With all due respect Axelrod the Chief consultant to the Obama campaign makes his living by having a grassroots lobbying firm to even out his billings in between elections.
Please do not sit there and lecture me that the special interest money from trial lawyers and labor unions somehow disappears because you found 19 people inside the McCain campaign who've been lobbyists.

Colmes: Well actually it's 59. That's more than any other Presidential candidate running this time.
You can't paint a one sided picture and say McCain's the only reformer and he's done none of this stuff and he's totally clean and everybody else is on the take and..

Rove: Alan you sound suspiciously like that Obama commercial that calls McCain dishonorable. Nobody believes that John McCain who took on Jack Abramoff and Campaign Finance Reform is in the pocket of lobbyists.

Colmes: I'm not saying he's dishonorable I'm saying he's got more lobbyists..

Rove: You're better than that Alan. Alan please. You are embarrassing yourself. I'm sorry but this is ridiculous.

Colmes: I think that's a rather insulting thing to say when I'm pointing out a fact that he has X number of lobbyists working on his campaign..

Rove: SO WHAT!! He probably has 2 or 3-thousand fundraisers raising money for his campaign.

Colmes: Alright.. mumble.. mumble.. let's move on.

Rove: He has 10's of thousands of Volunteers.. so what Alan!?!? So what if 19 of them are lobbysists?!

Colmes: Well if you campaign as a sole reformer here.. We'll be back with more from Karl Rove after the break.

I’m not sure a total smackdown but he did put Colmes back a bit...
McCains campaign people NEED to expose the DEMS on this Fannie Mae fiasco...sure the republicans were at some fault for not driving for reform after 2003 but the fact remains this was a Dem driven program with the Gov’t bailing it out. A small step for socialism really....

I watched this last night — it was a bootifull thang to behold. I tried to get on FR to see if folks were talking about it, but unfortunately, FR was completely down.

Rove took Holmes head off, put it on a plate, as if to say, “Holmes, since you were not using it, I have your brain here. What would you like me to do with it, dweeb?

I was watching, it was awesome...especially “Rove: You’re better than that Alan. Alan please. You are embarrassing yourself. I’m sorry but this is ridiculous.”

To look on colmes face for the remaining few minutes - priceless.....I just wish that that sort of thing would happen more often to him. He’s a talkover liberal wanker.

Yeah, the Crypt Keeper tries to talk over you if you make him look foolish, but that is easy to do with Colmes. Rove slammed him, hard.

Typical lib weasel. Tries to change the subject when the argument isn’t going his way. Colmes also uses ‘jamming’ - the lefty technique of talking (shouting) over under and through whatever your opponent is trying to say.

Just makes you want to take a 2x4 t ohim.

Yeah, in one segment with Alan Colmes, Rove showed more aggressive defense of the conservative argument than the entire Bush Administration did in 8 years. I guess 8 years of tentative, wuss-ass, egg-shell-walking by Rove and his team was enough to cause him to grow a pair.

Ya it was beautiful.

Colmes is always interrupting with his idiot statements trying to derail anything of worth an opponent has begun.

He is distasteful and I have no idea why Fox continue to
let him sit there and play the fool. Or why he chooses to.

It’s when they have to veer from the talking points. Colmes ran out of time, or he would have interjected “the failed policies of the Bush Administration.”

The thing I did not get during that segment was when Sean asked Rove about needing to do an ad and Rove just dissed it by saying “ads are not important” and went on about some other point. Whats up with that?

I kinda feel sorry for Alan.

It has to be a burden for him to know that he wouldn't amount to a rat's ass if it were not for Sean Hannity.

Imagine the "Alan Colmes Show" in the H&C time slot.

Try to find the Alan Colmes show on radio....and if you happen to find it, you can listen for about 30 milliseconds.

Try to find his book anywhere.

Yes, Alan is a sad character...tied to Hannity....and should be down on his knees every day thanking God that Hannity continues to support him.

My husband sat here saying: “Go Carl.” It’s about time someone spoke up that way. That’s the language they understand. He shut up Alan so quickly the camera was on Carl the whole time. He totally SHUT ALAN OUT! My God...a magnificent brain up against the left...can’t beat it. Would like to see all people speak to the issues and push the truth into the faces of the left. Carl was outstanding. Alan showed his ignorance but then again..he always does.

I see nothing “Fair & Balanced” about having a liar on the show. Colmes has spewed night after night of nothing but propaganda, telling pure lies and half-truths. There is nothing fair or balanced about being lied to.

Poor Alan has been getting more absurd all the time.

Lately, I think even he doesn’t believe the BS talking points that he has to present on behalf of Obama and company. The stress on him is starting to really show.

He was sharper a year to two ago. But fighting for Obama wears people out with all the double-think.
