Skip to comments.Rove: Public 'Enraged,' GOP Should Focus on Debt Ceiling Fight
Posted on 10/03/2013 8:53:57 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
Republican strategist Karl Rove, writing in The Wall Street Journal's opinion pages Wednesday, warned that "the public is increasingly impatient, even enraged, with Washington's dysfunction."
He implied that senate Republican tactics are politically hard to defend, and urged GOP congressional leaders to be ready to hit the ground running for the bigger fight ahead: the debt-ceiling vote.
In advance of that October 17 deadline, Rove advocated having "a serious debt-ceiling plan ready quickly." Otherwise, he warned Democrats led by President Obama and, alluding to Tea Party stalwarts, "a faction within the GOP's own ranks can whipsaw the party."
Rove made this stark warning: "Whoever misplays the debt-ceiling debate" could suffer "enduring political damage."

In short, Bush took Rove’s advise.
Rove is misinterpreting the anger out here. Like the rest of the GOP-e and beltway he has fallen out of touch with the common freeman.
This is the current talking point from progressives (read: communists)in both parties:
The GOP has no plan for what to do next, so they should just give up and wait for the debt ceiling fight.
Peruse Rove's bio more carefully. He was NEVER in touch nor an advocate for the common freeman. Pay attention to his actions and their consequences, not his words.
The boy in the plastic bubble speaks - Begone!
Arguably, they lost the White House and the Senate, because the GOP was a do nothing operation with zero plans to stop Obama.
And Rove is still at it. Rove lost in 2006, 2008, 2010 (Tea Party won), 2012 and is on the path to lose in 2014.
Who bothers to listen to this guy anymore? He still has the ear of the millionaires and billionaires who fund his political operations to the tune of tens of millions of dollars every year. Rove deserves not another dime. Please, people.
Rove is not in office nor voted on a single bill.
Redirect your anger to someone who can do something.
Rove is a bloviator on FNC, that is all.
As it stands, there is no delay. Mark Levin is the guy
that makes sense.
Tokyo. Always screwed up.
Can’t say I agree with you here, but I do agree that Levin is the one making sense.
In my world, it’s still screw rove and his smarmy back room deals.
