    TAMPA, Fla.— Karl Rove on Monday predicted Rep. Todd Akin will lose by the widest margin of any Republican candidate in modern history if he remains in his Missouri Senate race against Sen. Claire McCaskill. “What he said was indefensible and the way he handled it made it worse,” Rove told POLITICO’s Mike Allen at the first POLITICO Playbook Breakfast at the Republican National Convention. “This is a program that he taped and obviously he saw nothing wrong with it in his tape,” Rove said, pointing out that Akin didn’t respond to the taped interview until two days later. Rove...
  • Political Predictions for 2012 (per Karl Rove.........)

    Political Predictions for 2012 Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid or both will leave the Democratic leadership by year's end. By KARL ROVE As New Year's approaches, here are a baker's dozen predictions for 2012. • Republicans will keep the U.S. House, albeit with their 25-seat majority slightly reduced. In the 10 presidential re-elections since 1936, the party in control of the White House has added House seats in seven contests and lost them in three. The average gain has been 12 seats. The largest pickup was 24 seats in 1944—but President Barack Obama is no FDR, despite what he said in...

    The Karl Rove-related conservative PAC is about to launch $500,000 worth of cable TV ads against President Obama that features Fremont’s most famous bankrupt solar company, Solyndra. Just a guess: The three ads won’t be positive. Indeed.They paint as Obama as feeding the beast that is “crony capitalism” — exemplified by Solyndra, the high-tech solar panel manufacturer that incinerated $528 million in taxpayer-funded federal loan guarantees when it declared bankruptcy. H/T to the AP for getting the jump on this one. Says the A-to-the-P: “The nationwide ad by Crossroads GPS is aimed at ‘exposing this ugly underbelly of Obama’s vision,’...

    Pumping money, for sure, but one doesn't normally associate Karl Rove with pumping iron. That was before the owner of Gold's Gym International Inc. kicked in $2 million to a Rove operation very much involved in Tuesday's election.That the operation is financing candidates avowedly opposed to all manner of gay rights issues - adoption, marriage, job discrimination, serving in the military - has proved too much for the chain's Bay Area franchise. "Our member base made us aware of this, and we decided on a course of action," Don Dickerson, the franchise's director of operations, said in an interview. After...

Nonetheless, Bush's Brain was the rock star attraction at a dinner Thursday night at The Ritz-Carlton to kick off the debut of the Heritage Foundation's new San Francisco Bay branch. (For the past couple of years, the premier conservative thinktank has been establishing outposts around the country to stoke the grassroots brush fires all year-round. And anybody who lives in the Bay Area knows that there's a lot of closeted conservatives here. Why do you...

    Karl Rove, that evil conservative strategist and professional boogeyman to the left, has gone on record asserting that Obama is winging it, and suggesting that our newly minted Dear Leader may be incompetent. In an article for the Wall Street Journal today, Rove takes the point in demonstrating the many many signs that our nation is currently being led by an empty suit with a head full of leftist dogma.....

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- There was major political theater involving President Bush's former chief of staff Karl Rove. A protestor tried to arrest Rove for treason Tuesday morning while he was speaking at the Mortgage Bankers Association Convention, continuing in San Francisco. There were three protests during a very lively back and forth between former senate majority leader George Mitchell and Karl Rove. Rove blamed the Democrats for everything wrong with the economy. A protestor tried to smack handcuffs on Karl Rove, but Rove slapped back, and the woman was taken off stage.

    CNN ^ | July 10, 2008
    Karl Rove, President Bush's longtime political guru, refused to obey an order to testify before a House Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday. Rove's lawyer asserted that Rove was "immune" from the subpoena the committee had issued, arguing that the committee could not compel him to testify due to "executive privilege." The panel is investigating allegations that Rove and his White House allies dismissed U.S. attorneys and prosecuted officials who they saw as political opponents. The panel subpoenaed Rove in May after his lawyer, Robert D. Luskin, made clear the former White House deputy chief of staff would not appear voluntarily. Luskin...

    Washington (AP) Karl Rove says he didn't interfere with the Justice Department's prosecution of a former Alabama governor. President Bush's former chief political adviser told ABC's "This Week" program today that he only learned about the investigation and indictment of Don Siegelman "by reading about it in the newspaper." Siegelman was sentenced to more than seven years in prison for a 2006 bribery conviction. He was released in March thanks to a federal appeals court ruling. He has accused Republican operatives of pushing his prosecution. Rove also told ABC today that it will be up to the courts to decide...

    The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed former White House adviser Karl Rove as part of its inquiry into whether the Bush administration politically meddled at the Justice Department. Accusations of politics governing decisions at the agency led to the resignation of former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. The subpoena issued Thursday orders Rove to testify before the House panel on July 10. He is expected to face questions about the White House's role in firing nine U.S. attorneys in 2006 and the prosecution of former Gov. Don Siegelman of Alabama, a Democrat.

    The House Judiciary Committee threatened Thursday to subpoena former White House adviser Karl Rove if he does not agree by May 12 to testify about former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman's corruption case. In a letter to Rove's attorney, committee Democrats called it "completely unacceptable" that the Republican political strategist has rejected the panel's request for sworn testimony even as he discusses the matter publicly through the media. "We can see no justification for his refusal to speak on the record to the committee," the letter states. "We urge you and your client to reconsider ... or we will have no...

    One of the main themes of my new book, Right Is Wrong, is the role the media have played in allowing the lunatic fringe now in control of the Republican Party -- the people who believe in torture but don't believe in evolution -- to hijack our democracy. I document how the real problem comes not from Fox News or the likes of Limbaugh and O'Reilly, but from a mainstream media that has so internalized the Right's framing and messages they have now become a part of its DNA. And the media seem intent on confirming this point again and...

Bush said Sunday. "That is when we get engaged in a dialogue about things they want...
