let them know we will not support any message from Karl Rove and that we will not be told who our candidates will be. I reminded the staffers that it was the people that they are employed by NOT FATBOY KARL ROVE, and if they do not want to lose in 2014 they better start listening to us or expect a really low turnout in 2014. I will not support any candidate endorsed by karl or the gop establishment.
here are the names of the GOP Leadership: John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Cathy McMorris Rogers, and James Langford. phone number to capitol is 202-224-3121. I got through to mccarthy (where meeting with rove was held) and rogers. cantor's mailbox is full. will try boehner and langford next.
There is only one political party in this country and that is the Progressive Party. The D's and the R's in the Congress and Senate are mostly Progressives. We haven't had a non-progressive president in the last 100 years. We need to get a new Constitution Party started or we will become just another European style Socialist country.
I wouldn't let Rove fix my septic tank let alone messaging for the Republican party. Show him the door or you can kiss 2014 good-bye.
The GOP just will not learn. Their jump into the bed with Rove will just set them further back. Rove is a closet RINO.
Someone on twitter asked a good question. Why is Ted Cruz trashed by the GOP and Menendez is treated with respect?
The House GOP leaders going to Karl Rove for advice on fixing their messaging problem...is like the Jacksonville Jaguars going to the Cleveland Browns on advice of how to get to the Super Bowl.
Stupid Party? You Betcha!
There's only one person they should have called...Gingrich. He knows how to talk nice to liberals while he's making them do exactly what he wants. Every article he's written at Human Events makes more sense than anything the House has done so far. Here's one of them.
IF Rove and the GOP "So Called" leadership are the Messengers,
There has never been a more appropriate time to shoot the Messenger.
And that is the pure, unadulterated TRUTH. It is clear that the Republican leaders know that conservatives are out to "get them out" and have turned to Rove to salvage their jobs. Rove is throwing out the "grassroots" terminology to "hook" folks who don't know his (or Boehner's or McConnell's or Cantor's ) track record of being WEAK and ineffectual when it mattered to THE WELLBEING AND SURVIVAL OF THIS COUNTRY. I am hoping that Rove's attempts fail miserably, as they should, and that the Tea Party rises up and slaps him in the derriere. Rove will fight, Boehner, McConnell, et al., will fight for their political lives BUT they must be defeated and kicked to the curb. Rove thinks that just by using the term "grassroots" will give him credibility - it won't. The Tea Party is the only "grassroots" organization(s) that are grassroots conservative and Rove is NOT a conservative. The Republican leaders/elite are well aware of their tenuous positions and are trying to (in the most feeble way possible - not really convincing anyone) show that they can "speak up" (their mamby pamby attempts). Well, fellas, it's too late. You should have spoken up BEFORE Obama got reelected and you should have DEFUNDED Obamacare like you said you would and you should have said NO to Obama's debt ceiling demands and you should have supported conservative Tea Party candidates to pay the Tea Party back for giving you the HOUSE in 2010. You did NONE of that and now I hope you sweat it out. Rove is OVER. I haven't watched FOX News since November and now that they have renewed Rove for further commentary - I will not watch FOX again. Watching the fallout of the November elections is interesting. Scott Brown now on FOX - another RINO!!!! Rove's contract being renewed - West kicked to the curb. Sarah Palin's contract not being renewed (although, she may have not wanted it to be). Testing the waters for Jeb Bush as a candidate in 2016 - ugh. I'm not even sure that Rubio is the right person for 2016. All I do know is that I'm am still livid over the voter fraud that is not being investigated or brought to light. Still outraged at CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and the other "news" organizations that continue to manipulate/censor the NEWS to keep Obama's failures and outright treasonous actions from the public. I refuse to donate to the RNC and Reince Preibus. Personally, I'm gearing up to get involved again and it won't be for the RINOs or Rove or FOX. Conservatives must do all they can possibly do to defeat the entrenched RINOs, the entrenched incumbents and any and all Democrats.
I do not think Conservatism will ever dominate the GOP, even with Reagan as President and Newt as Speaker the blue blood rockafeller establishment had a lot of power and control.
IMO it will take a fresh new party to return the country to constitutional principles and values.
The majority of senators and congressmen in both parties are invested too much in their own personal wealth, power, position and prestige.
We have created our own welfare state of representatives, most of them have done nothing more in their lives than live off the government tit, and have learned that they can write their own payroll checks.
The Rove R's are very happy with the status quo and do not want the Conservatives upsetting the Big Gov. agenda they are more than happy to assit the D's in growing. The only difference is the Rove R's want to be in charge of the growing and hope to some day. That's why Rove insists any electable fool will do as long as they put that R behind their name.
He is a DECEPTICON... a deceptive conservative! They make you think they are doing something one way when they are doing it another... John McCain, Linsay Graham, Jeff Flake and Mitch McConnell to name a few are also DeceptiCons! Im not using the Rino name any longer.
Jeffrey Lord calls them Cotton Conservatives. It's a VERY appropriate name. We need to hang it around their necks, because of the very salient reminder of the Cotton Whigs, and their willingness to accept slavery "in order to win." It's what led to the Whigs demise.
It will lead to the demise of the Republicans, too. Time for something better.
Karl Rove is a disease. The only way to save the Republican Party is to excise him from the body, like the cancer he, and his followers, are.
Yep Rove, It's "Your Message". Not the fact that you and the vast majority of repubs in Washington are pushing the dems agenda. sarc
I guess these idiots have to learn the hard way that we conservatives intend to kick Rove and all his RINO friends to the curb.
Nothing good will come of this.
The Republican leadership... spineless and ignorant as they are... have learned absolutely nothing. Not a damn thing.
A study by the Sunlight Foundation, which tracks political spending, concluded that Rove’s super PAC, American Crossroads, had a success rate of just 1 percent on $103 million in attack ads — one of the lowest “returns on investment” (ROIs) of any outside spending group in 2012 elections.
Rove isn't going down without a fight.
Unfortunately, he has help from the gutless, shameless, lilly livered RINOS who seem to think the sun still shines brightly out of Rove's back passage. Them along with the idiots at FOX News who have renewed Rove's contract who also think Rove is the best thing since sliced bread.
The only losers here are the American people and conservative values and principles.......
Why not call Obama what he is, a typical Tax & Spend liberal? That sort of language helped to make liberal politicians un-electable in the past, so why not use it now? After all, it's the truth, too.
Don't forget he's a nice guy, but a bad President, too. Yes, that's the ticket. All nice guys call terrorists friends, right?
What a bunch of idiots...no wonder our side in is trouble. They are listening to a loser with a losing record.
Keep the heat on Rove!!!
Dumb and Dumber. These people never learn from their mistakes. At least, they are not leading our men and women into battle.
"We are a country going bankrupt to fund a bloated, distant, and often corrupt federal government led by venal politicians more concerned with paying off their campaign cronies and consolidating their own power than in preserving the constitutional republic..."
- Sarah Palin
She wasn't just talking about Democrats. The Republicans better pay attention. They have a choice to make. Rove has poked the grass roots with a stick and Palin/Levin are ready to whirl around and tear his face off. GAME ON!
Just how stupid are these people? Why are they taking advice from a proven failure? I give Rove a big part of the blame for Obama winning in 2008 because Bush/Rove did not defend themselves against the Democrats attacks on them. The low-information voters were convinced that Bush caused the recession because the Bush WH made no attempt to defend themselves. Why they didn't pin the collapse on the Dem Congress is beyond stupid. The mortgage/construction industry collapsed because people were loaned money they couldn't afford to pay back. That's all on Congress, but Rove allowed the Dems to blame Bush.
His failures in 2012 are well documented.
