No More Karl Rove Candidates

photo credit: jd_wmwmKarl Rove has declared war on grass-roots conservatives and tea partiers. Rove, who had the richest super PAC in 2012 (American Crossroads, which reportedly spent $300 million in the 2012 election cycle), has started a new fund called Conservative Victory Project to spend big bucks in the 2014 Republican primaries to defeat Republican candidates not approved by the Establishment.

Rove’s big-money spending last year, which was similarly designed to help only Establishment candidates, especially if they had defeated a real conservative in the primary, was notoriously unsuccessful. Of the 31 races in which Rove aired TV ads, Republicans won only 9, so his donors got little return on their investment.

Establishment losers included Rick Berg who lost in North Dakota and Denny Rehberg who lost in Montana, even while Romney was carrying both those states. Other Establishment losers were George Allen in Virginia, Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin, Connie Mack in Florida and Heather Wilson in New Mexico.

Meanwhile, Rove was helping Harry Reid to keep control of the Senate by trying to defeat real conservatives nominated by grass-roots Republicans. Rove made nasty and hurtful remarks about conservative candidates he didn’t like.

After Missouri Republicans nominated Todd Akin in the primary, Rove told his super PAC donors that they should all apply pressure to “sink Todd Akin,” and that if Akin were “found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts.” When this malicious comment was reported by Businessweek, Rove tried to pass it off as a joke, but suggesting the murder of a congressman is not funny.

  • The Republican Party will surely go down in defeat if we follow the likes of Phyllis Schlafly and The Tea Party how many people has she elected? I’ll keep Karl to help bring back the real Republican Party.

    • If Rove’s idea of Republican is the definition of a “real” Republican, I’m outta here! Rove’s Republicans like Murkowski and Branstad are nothing but go-to guys for big government, anti-American bigotry. Murkowski has voted with Obama more times than some Democrats and she is on Obama’s speeddial when he needs a swing vote for his socialist uncontitutional agenda to bring America down.
      No Thanks Rove! We have had enough of your brand! I’ll take a conservative Republican who has the stalwart and sagacious attitude and determination to defend and restore American liberty and freedom like Joe Miller does, a thousand times before I would listen to or give any credibility to Karl Rove.

    Karl Rove, is the reason we are in this mess, he has no interest in winning, while his delusions go berserk, in his manipulation for ‘metro’ candidates, he’s turned the party into a collection of ‘minutia’ driven group of “intellectual illiterates” like he is. This phenomena was evident, when the National Socialist Democratic Party, tried to become an ally to the ascending Nazi Party, in 1932, the National Socialists were marginalized to the point, they ceased to exist.
    According to a statement from Nancy Pelosi, back in 2008, her goal was to eliminate the Republicans from any and all Government posts, it appears, they have read the History of what made the Nazi Party so effective and why the Single Party State is the only way to go. The ‘redefined’ language gives a lot of double speak, what the Progressives of Austria and Germany called “Soziolekt”, but when this was defied your “Group Speech” would classify you as “Socially Maladjusted” then your life would stop, assassinated socially, politically, and economically, there really will be no choice. Karl Rove is an Obama “submissive” his purposes are suspect. Since his placement as “architect” the Republican Party, has ceased to exist worst enemy for Conservatives and Republicans, is having a Karl Rove.
