Mark Levin to Karl Rove: ´Get
the hell off the stage already,
will you pal?´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 11/13/2012 9:32:49 AM

On his Monday radio program, talk show host Mark Levin, author of “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America,” rejected the notion that the Republican Party should become more moderate to win over voters and blasted several commentators who suggested otherwise. Levin added that the so-called Republican “consultant class” — including MSNBC analyst and former John McCain adviser Steve Schmidt — should be required to disclose how much they’re being paid before they’re allowed to try to steer the party. “This consultant class, ladies and gentlemen, is very, very dangerous,” Levin said. “And all this money you contribute to the campaigns

With the ways things went in that last election, the Great One is right that the GOP is in need in a bad way of some new leadership.

Mark is a true patriot. He´s absolutely correct about this, and it´s why I no longer donate to the RNC, only individual candidates. Rove looked utterly ridiculous on election night when OH was lost and he was desperately clinging to the possibility that perhaps the count was wrong. I´d also like to know how much he´s getting paid.

Does not matter where Rove is. The early polling/organizational efforts and early voting give the DNC all the information they need on how many fraudulent votes to manufacture and where to stuff them. I guess a better Republican candidate and campaign might have done better, but they would have still lost Philadelphia and Cleveland and that means PA and Ohio. No candidate can start out that far behind.

Elites are elites, regardless of party affiliation. And they all hold We the People in very low regard. It´s all a game tto them.OUR LIVES are just a game to them.

Mark Levin has it right.
It is past time for the "consultants" to be fired.
Where is Trump when we need him?
Rove and Schmidt failed. They called for a candidate who did not feel our pain. Whatever else one thinks of Clinton, he emoted like crazy. Emote, schmooze, get out there and hit folks in their feelings. Romney is a technocrat. Romney is a re-incarnation of Herbert Hoover, and we saw how that worked out.
What do you do with the bearers of bad advice? Replace them.

Let us get some real leaders in the Republican party: how about those who win elections? Is that too radical?

And conservatives win. This is a matter of historic fact.

Either that or let the Republican Party join the Whigs. Let us start a Constitution Party. Bring back the Founding Fathers. Let us do what wins.

Way to go, Mark! Thank you for saying what so many of us think. We don´t need leaders who are willing to cave at every turn.

Karl Rove is the one who forced ´compassionate conservatism´ down our throats, instead of defending naturally compassionate conservative principles like self reliance, hard work, and freedom.

What is so wrong with encouraging people to go after their dreams, and flee the economic slavery that comes with government dependence?

Trolls reveal themselves so readily.

Let´s check the score card.
Rove: Bush and son get elected 3x, presided over GOP majority in house and senate
Levin: cheerleader for Santorum, West, Akin, Mourdock, O´Donnell, Palin, Angle, Christie (before he was against him), Mia Love

Yup, Levin should take his own advice.

I hate to see fellow conservatives start pointing fingers. They did nothing wrong.
The dims won due to a changing dumbed down population that got the election close enough for voter fraud to do the rest.
To become more moderate to win, only pushes the USA in the communist direction faster.
If we change anything it should be to win over hispanics and other franchise groups by ideas not gifts.
Otherwise whats the point. Is it better to have a conservative party that is a minority, or is it better to have two left wing parties, one a majority and one a minority. I am a conservative American first and a Republican second.

#14. Mark Levin is a true Patriot. He supports the Constitution and is a scholar on the writings of the Founding Fathers.
He live streams at 6pm eastern, Marklevinshow.com why not listen to him for a few days. I learn something new everyday.
Rove is 100% wrong about amnesty being the tipping point with hispanics. They are the largest consumers of gov´t benefits and will always vote for the party that writes their checks. I am leaning toward a mass deportation push, since our gov´t will not enforce our border laws. We cannot reward 20 million illegals with amnesty which will give democrats a permanent majority.

We do not win elections by tossing people out of the party.

We won the last one but had it stolen.

If we only do one thing it must be to create a fool proof electronic voting system.

We MUST do this.

What would be any value in having a Republican party if it is simply Democrat lite? I also agree that the reason people vote for the Democrats is their push of expanding government services and redistribution of wealth by taxing other people. The majority of people are getting free stuff and want more free stuff. Me, I think entitlements need to be reformed and I´m surprised that the young people don´t see it.

Social Security is not sustainable. My wife and I receive over $33,000 per year in SS payments. I would like to thank the six or eight low earning Obama supporters that are paying my social security.

We may be in the "minority" for the moment, but I agree with #14, #20, and especially #27. When is the eternal circular firing squad going to be disbanded? Personally I am sick and tired of all the attacks on fellow Republicans who disagree with anything some people agree with. IMHO, "Group-think" is not a winning strategy, unless you´re a demonrat.

Mark Levin IS the only one who puts his $$ where his mouth is.
He, through Landmark Legal, does yeomans work for all
things conservative.
INMO he is the ONLY with his experience and love for his country that has never wavered in his convictions.
That is why he stuck with Akin and wasn´t a fair weather friend.
Who would support Biden in the democrat party if they threw
him under the bus for every moronic, evil duncelike things
that roll off his tongue daily?? Looks pretty popular among his "sheople" to me.
Long Live Mark Levin!!
The others should get off the stage. Will no longer watch O´Reilly, Morris or Rove again.

Mark Levin´s "rant" sounds like a response to the apparently concerted effort to rid the Republican Party of conservatives. Mark Levin is maligned for speaking his mind, and Steve Schmidt is given "a platform for seriousness", as a consultant, while calling for conservatives to be silenced?!?


Kathryn Jean Lopez review of Mark Levin´s book Liberty and Tyranny includes much info about him.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/227140/mark-his-words/kathryn-jean-lopez

----------------------------

Beginning in 1981, Mark R. Levin served as advisor to several members of President Ronald Reagan´s Cabinet, eventually becoming Associate Director of Presidential Personnel and ultimately Chief of Staff to Attorney General Edwin Meese; Levin also served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education at the U.S. Department of Education, and Deputy Solicitor of the U.S. Department of the Interior. He has practiced law in the private sector, and is president of the Landmark Legal Foundation in Leesburg, Virginia. He holds a B.A. from Temple University, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude, as well as a J.D. from the Temple University Beasley School of Law.

In 2001, the American Conservative Union named Levin the recipient of the prestigious Ronald Reagan Award.

#34 and #35 BRAVO. I find it funny that as the GOP crashes and buns (again!) old guard Republcans consider Mr. Levin´s blunt truthful analyses "vulgar." OK, you just stick with all those "classy" GOP analysts/strategists/former Bush administration toadies. Steve Schmidt, Nicole Wallace (who had a big hand in helping MSM destroy Sarah), Rove, Andy Card, even Ari Fleischer and Dana Perino. They are all out there sticking up for the old guard who have brought us to this.

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W.

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction.

Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.

On Dennis Miller’s radio show on Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said that because of American weakness in the Middle East, “the chances of an Israeli strike on Iran have risen, are probably double.” Krauthammer, author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” called the United States’ position in the region “the weakest” in memory and blamed that on President Barack Obama. “We’re the weakest we’ve been in the region in memory,” he said. “The big deal in the region was 1970, when Egypt kicked out the Soviets and aligned itself

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer predicted on Friday that should President Barack Obama make a misstep when dealing with Syria, he could spark a “major regional war.” In his column published in Friday’s Washington Post, Krauthammer alluded to the “guns of August,” a reference to 1914 and the build-up that led to the start of World War I. That reference was a comparison to the current situation in Middle East involving Syria and a pending U.S. strike over the use of chemical weapons, and how those seemingly isolated events could unfold into something bigger.

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen.

McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Sarah Palin, the tea-party-darling former Alaska governor who ran for vice president in 2008, is leaving the door open for a president run in 2016. ´It depends on what it is that Americans really, really want in a candidate,´ Palin said Friday night. ´If they want a fighter, if they want someone who can so respect our exceptionalism, everything that makes America great, the promise of America. And if we don´t find that, then I would run.´ [Snip] Asked who her favorite presidential hopefuls are so far, she singled out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul while

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

The White House said the US president told his Russian counterpart that Russia’s actions were a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. During the hour-long phone call, President Obama urged Russian forces to return to their bases. The White House said it hoped the crisis could be settled diplomatically and urged the Russian and Ukrainian governments to hold direct talks in an effort to find a settlement. The President called for an agreement which would protect the interests of both Ukrainians and ethnic Russians living in Ukraine. This was the second phone call between the two leaders in a

The millionaire attorney funding a ‘spoiled’ cheerleader’s lawsuit against her own parents let the teenager drink in his house, threw ‘alcoholic parties’ and apparently allowed her to have her first drop of booze, according to court documents. When Rachel Canning was a 15-year-old freshman she got so drunk on vodka at Jon Inglesino’s home that she was sick all over the sidewalk and into a garbage can after her dad Sean picked her up for a basketball game. And according to the Canning family, Inglesino’s wife Amy gave Rachel and her friends wine coolers in the back of a limo

Disbelieving family and friends of an ex-Navy SEAL who died of an apparent drugs overdose on the ship made famous in the movie Captain Phillips are convinced of a ´cover-up´ and have called for a US investigation into his death, MailOnline can reveal today. The body of Mark Kennedy, a super fit, highly-decorated member of the elite fighting force, was found inside a cabin on the cargo ship Maersk Alabama - the vessel involved in a 2009 hijacking that ended with Somali pirates shot dead by SEALs. Another former SEAL, Jeffrey Reynolds, was found alongside him, also dead from a suspected drug

A Georgia Tech graduate student who set himself on fire while apparently experimenting with bomb-making elements in his apartment last month has died, officials confirmed Thursday. Saamer Akhshabi, an Iranian national, had burns on more than 90 percent of his body following the February 4 explosion in his apartment near the university, where Akhshabi was studying in the College of Computing. [Snip] ´The FBI has relayed that, to date, they have not developed any information or evidence indicating criminal intent in this investigation.´ Law enforcement officials determined that Akhshabi wasn´t a threat to the Georgia Tech community, but it remains

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide. He saw his approval rating crater within months of taking office; it now sits at
