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 noticed that too!!!
In come ways I feel sorry for Alan. He has been drinking the kool-aid so long and now they give him 0bama the doofus to defend.
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.
Alan would not really be anything without Sean.
I hadn’t thought about it that way before now... lol.... no self respecting (ha, as if) liberal would watch that show because it is on the evil FOX network, so he’s really just an ugly shill for Hannity.
You know after the camera went off Alan did the face-palm.. and was like
“Why am I defending this guy Obama?”
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.
Alan Colmes should be arrested as a common night walker, but that would be unfair to honest whores.
Defending Obama has to be one tough job.
He’s gotta memorize those talking points you know
“The failed policies of the Bush Administration” LOL
“I have no idea why Fox continue to
let him sit there and play the fool. “
You answered it in our own question.
What better way to show the Liberal side.
Then again, I doubt you can find a Liberal that doesn’t come off that way.
Agreed. Sometimes it’s painfully obvious he doesn’t believe the things he’s saying.
nice living if you can get it........he has a radio show that I never heard of and has written a book that failed as bad as pelosi’s .......but hey, he’s probably getting raises, albiet smaller than sean’s
I was going to ping you, too! ;)
I was jumping on the bed... YEAH WHEN ROVE DID THE KO On
(badly dyed black FOREheaded) Colmbs.
That's what made it so priceless.
Rove just used standard liberal tactics back at him by overriding Colmes' snotty little voice.
Difference was that Rove sounds like an adult when he does it.
I’d have said something like: Let’s talk about Rezko, the Chicago crook, Acorn, and Soros, somebody REALLY trying to buy influence, etc.
