I agree - Rove is off my list big time.

As for the attacks now on Romney, I do NOT believe any of this, it has nothing to do with Romney. I support Romney, however at this juncture, since I hate so much what the liberal socialist pigs are doing to Cain right now, I am switching my vote to Cain.

And I will be on his website shortly to give my donation to his campaign.

If Mitt was part of this smear, then Cain has good reason to re-think his earlier gestures of comity towards Mitt. Some say it wasn’t Mitt — it was Perry. Maybe it was just Rove.

See this post, the commies call themselves progressives these days, they inhabit both parties, and will sell out their own to hold on to the power.

The ride to the bottom will be bumpy to be sure, but it will not take long from here.

Karl Rove may be a lot of things but one of the things he is definitely not is STUPID. There is no way Rove and Romney orchestrated this hit on Cain. But that’s what the libs would like you to think . . . and you play right into their hands with this nonsense. Bend over while Obama has his way with you.

Karl Rove a PRO at destroying reputations and ruining the lives of good folks to advance his personal political agenda:

1992 George H. W. Bush presidential campaign Rove was fired from the 1992 Bush presidential campaign after he planted a negative story with columnist Robert Novak about dissatisfaction with campaign fundraising chief Robert Mosbacher Jr. (Esquire Magazine, January 2003). Novak provided some evidence of motive in his column describing the firing of Mosbacher by former Senator Phil Gramm: “Also attending the session was political consultant Karl Rove, who had been shoved aside by Mosbacher.” Novak and Rove deny that Rove was the leaker, but Mosbacher maintained that “Rove is the only one with a motive to leak this. We let him go. I still believe he did it.”[25] During testimony before the CIA leak grand jury, Rove apparently confirmed his prior involvement with Novak in the 1992 campaign leak, according to National Journal reporter Murray Waas.[26]

Romney has been carrying on as a treacherous flip flopper, and Cain has not. If Mitt stays true to form, he would be very, very difficult to deal with as a president, at least as difficult for conservatives as for the leftiest Democrats.

Whenever Team Romney had rumors they wanted to start about other candidates,
Jonathan Martin has been their go-to guy to get those rumors in writing in front of a national audience.

“And The Most Irresponsible Journalist Award Goes to The Politico’s Jonathan Martin!
So tell me, how do you write a “news” story about an organization paying for a speaker when you don’t even know if the organization is paying for the speaker?
Ask “journalist” Jonathan Martin. He knows all about it.
You see, Jonny wrote a piss poor story the other day about how the Iowa Family Policy Center will be paying a large speaker fee if Sarah Palin comes to Iowa to keynote the IFPC’s fall funderaiser.
The only problem is that Jonny has no sources confirming that any exorbitant fee is being charged or paid.
Jonny also got some inside info from David Kochel, who was a top aide to former (and future) presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.
Hey Dave, didn’t I just read a story about how Mitt Romney tried to buy off the Iowa Christian Alliance?
I heard you helped facilitate that little scheme. And somehow you are shocked at the thought of a well-known political figure (who very likely isn’t running for president) getting paid a speaker’s fee for (gasp) a public speaking appearance? ..
and then we’ve got Tim Albrecht quoted. He was the Iowa spokesman for Romney’s 2008 caucus campaign.”
And it always seemed like, whenever the Romney people had rumors they wanted to start about other candidates,
Jonny was their go-to guy to get those rumors in writing in front of a national audience.


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


Who benefits most from Sanford meltdown? Californian (that's right) Mitt Romney


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Don’t be hasty about that either. Jonathan Martin was just on TV and said Politico has been working on this story for weeks, and implied he has talked to the women. This story did not happen overnight.

Also, do you remember if Politico broke the painted-over rock at the hunting lease story?

Karl Rove to Herman Cain: True or false?

Karl Rove said Monday that Herman Cain has failed to properly respond to the POLITICO report that at least two women accused him of inappropriate behavior, saying he needs to say “yes or no.”

“I think Geraldo had it right last night — you simply can’t say go talk to the National Restaurant Association and refuse to answer the question, ‘Were there any monetary settlements involved in these things,’” Rove said, referring to Fox News host Geraldo Rivera’s phone interview with Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon Sunday night hours after the report was first published, in which Rivera repeatedly asked whether there had been any cash settlements.

Are you kidding?

Romney, dog abuser, fake badge user,
is NOTHING but a carpetbagging, backstabber.

"But the details of the event are more than unseemly - they may, in fact, be illegal. Massachusetts's animal cruelty laws specifically prohibit anyone from carrying an animal "in or upon a vehicle, or otherwise, in an unnecessarily cruel or inhuman manner or in a way and manner which might endanger the animal carried thereon. "An officer for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals responded to a description of the situation saying "it's definitely something I'd want to check out." The officer, Nadia Branca, declined to give a definitive opinion on whether Romney broke the law but did note that it's against state law to have a dog in an open bed of a pick-up truck, and "if the dog was being carried in a way that endangers it, that would be illegal."


"Dog on Roof? What Was It Like for Romney's Pooch? - Scientists Say Dog Likely Experienced Wind-Whipped, Uncomfortable Trip - "Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family's hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and attached it to the station wagon's roof rack. e'd built a windshield for the carrier, to make the ride more comfortable for the dog,".. Jordan Kaplan, the owner of Petaholics, a dog walking service in New York City,
and a lifelong dog owner and dog lover, said Romney's actions were uncalled for"


"Romney's dog - This is a distinction Mitt Romney probably could do without, but he is surely the first presidential candidate to be attacked for putting a dog with diarrhea in a carrier and tying it to the top of a station wagon. Romney's defense: Seamus liked it. [like the citizens under Romney's RomneyCARE, etc.?] "


"As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. ''Dad!'' he yelled. ''Gross!'' A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who'd been riding on the roof in the wind for hours. As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway."

"Story about dog on car roof comes back to bite Romney - 200 comments from readers complaining of animal cruelty"

Romney's bad behavior Exposed by Seamus

"Romney Loses Nomination Over Dog Abuse? - Romney was traveling that summer with his wife, five sons, and Seamus to his parent's cottage on Lake Huron. But hours into the ride, Seamus apparently suffered diarrhea, which ran down the back window of the car. .David Kravitz wrote on BlueMassGroup, a liberal blog. "It also strikes me as classic Romney: it solves a problem efficiently, in a business-like manner, and with no regard whatsoever for the suffering that the solution may cause."

President Hussein's team.

Just like a anonymous, west Texas yellow dog brought attention to Perry's painted over N-rock. No need to find the rock and present it to the MSM, the tale is enough.

Hussein is digging up dirt on the GOP candidates who are the real threat to his reign.

Nonsense. This is definitely a democratic party operation. I know on first-hand evidence that they have hit squads to go after rising Republicans, particularly individuals who come from groups that they consider “theirs”: women, blacks, hispanics.

We also see that in the last primary for governor of NJ, they ran ads pretending to be by candidates in the Republican Primary, which were really pre-emptive attacks on the candidates who might win. This was designed to sow intraparty hostility among Republicans, and to tarnish the reputation of whoever eventually won.

The tactic was explained to me in person by the eventual winner of the primary, Chris Christie, who went on to win in the general election.

Blaming Karl Rove is a smokescreen.

No, he's not. Not officially, anyway.

His day job is with "American Crossroads", a 527 organization that raises money and supports Republican candidates and causes.

In this capacity, he essentially represents big money donors.

Rove is such a filth. Cain already said that investigation had proven there was no basis to the accusations, and restaurateurs are not exactly known to be rock ribbed conservatives. Now Rove wants to know if some insurance company paid the wenches off on the restaurant association’s behalf in order to cut the expenses of defending from a possible lawsuit? The wenches were lower than whale poop, but Rove is lower yet.

Obama fears Mitt in just what way?

Mitt has more waffles than the waffle hut, and many conservative lights (including the estimable Jim Rob) are ready to bolt if Mitt ever (hypothetically) gets the official GOP nod.

I’m not going to tell on you, Saundra, but Mitt boosting, or even what Jim Rob thinks might be Mitt boosting, will get you zotted here. He is not nearly as easy on Mitt as in 2008.
