Karl Rove and the Cotton Conservatives
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/6/2013 7:39:33 AM

Cotton, conscience, and Karl Rove. It’s time for a family discussion within the Republican Party. A serious conversation intended to be respectful conversation, and yes perhaps at times a tough-love kind of conversation. A conversation among friends. A conversation about politics, history, the Republican Party and America. Karl Rove, the former Bush 43 White House aide, has jump-started such a conversation with the announcement in the New York Times of the formation of something called “The Conservative Victory Project.” Described thusly in the Times:

Comments:
It is time to face the facts. The only goal and purpose of the Republican Establishment to feed off taxpayer money, pay off its heavy political donors, and resist any significant change to the way business is done in Washington D.C..

Many say J.F.K. would be a Republican in todays political climate. You could argue Reagan would be a Tea Party candidate in todays Republican Party, the very type of person Rove hopes to keep out of office.

Rove sure the hell isn´t no Reagan.

No one is required to send money to Rove´s group or to any other political group. At least he´s trying to do something. The OP says the purpose is to "resist any significant change", but do you really believe Karl Rove doesn´t want to take the Senate and solidify the GOP in the House? And to elect Republican state officials across the nation?

Yes, I really do believe that Rove and the Republican Establishment have no intention of limiting spending and shrinking government. An educated assessment based on the Republican Party recent historical record. Talk is cheap and eventually actions either prove you to be honest or fraudulent.

The one thing that all conservatives agree upon is the limitation of government and its spending. All other issues are secondary and personal. The Republican Party has failed on this basic conservative principle and refuses to change the status quo. Its purpose is now fully corrupted by Rove and his followers thus the end of the Republican Party as it exists now is near.

If you want to debate Rove on the future of the party then you either have to take on the plan he´s proposed and its intent - no more Aikens or Mourdouchs.

If you just want to stuff words in his mouth like the MSM then you´re basically doing an Alinksy on him.

I am not Rove´s biggest fan BUT.. I am also tired of the Tea Party people backing a candidate because he/she comes out saying.."I am against abortion"..after that it is Katie bar the door for the TP... I think there is a place for everyone but I do not want anymore candidates that talk about legal rape and witches and etc..I am tired of abortion being the #1 issue. I am against abortion too, but I also want my country back and dwelling on all things "below the waist" every freakin election isn´t going to do it..
The media/Dems back the Repubs in a corner every election ....war on women..birth control..abortion..NO MORE!!

I am a lifetime republican and I would like to see new people lead our party. I´m tired of RINO´s and and republican office holders too weak to stand up and fight for conservative principles. Rove has had his day and it is time for him to move out of the way. Let him raise money to give to republican primary winners not to try and choose the primary winners.

Well clearly, we´ve got ´Cotton Republicans´ aplenty here on Lucianne. The truth is, the Republican party is headed for a spit - and, as a life-long Republican, I will be on the fiscal and moral side of it. The Republican establishment is, as Mr. Lord has indicated, more about the Democrat goals of power, money and position than anything else and I, for one, will no longer support that. I yearn for the man who will do what´s best for these United States and our Constitution.

Thanks to Mr Lord for the history lesson; present days viewed through that context, it is easy to see how we are making the same moves now. #3 and I agree also. For every general election since Reagan, the establishment GOP hasn´t bothered to hide the fact that their aim is to maintain the status quo. Otherwise, why let Dole, McCain and Romney anywhere near a primary? The establishment GOP should just admit they consider themselves part of the ruling elite and change their Rs into Ds.

An excellent article worthy of reading and thoughtful consideration. I´ve worked with Karl Rove and know he believes he´s right. As the phrase goes, he´s not evil-he´s just wrong.

Republicans have to get back to their foundational issues and avoid the peripheral, like gays or immigration, which have always been there and always will. Shrinking the size of government addresses every important issue.

#3.Mikkens is correct. Most grasp that the GOP has nothing to do w/principled conservatism and never did. Ever. Since 1870 the Party has been and remains secular, progressive and corporatist. A Conservative Republican is in the same category as a Catholic Muslim; ie, a fantasy. Bury the carcass.

By now most people are familiar with the potentially deadly situation emerging at the Bundy ranch in Nevada. Right now, the back-story is not nearly as important as the immediate necessity to de-escalate this life-and liberty threatening situation, although it does play an important role and must be addressed. The fact that this situation could have been pulled from the script of the 1974 movie Chinatown or any of the Godfather movies is well known and must be exposed, but not before immediate action is taken to assure the preservation of life and liberty. The current critical nature of the crisis cannot

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The continuing battle between the establishment and antiestablishment forces within the Grand Old Party is getting bitter. Scott Reed, a chief political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, quips that the antiestablishment Club for Growth has morphed into the “Club for Dopes.” Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller charges that the head of a Washington-based pro-incumbent political group, the Main Street Republican Partnership, “may have eaten a lot paint chips as a kid.” Maybe that is what happens in any family feud.

Out of the woodwork came a parade of Hugoslavians, tyrant-lovers who could overlook the heathen’s badness for the sake of coolness. See, someone can be truly evil.

On the day the House Oversight Committee held Lois Lerner in contempt, Sen.

In a Thursday appearance on Sean Hannity´s radio program, Cruz said Holder should be impeached for "defying Congress and the rule of law." He said Holder´s actions were not in the spirit of the Department of Justice, which Cruz said has "a bipartisan tradition of resisting partisan pressure and upholding the rule of law."

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah launched an “anti-cronyism” agenda Monday with a column in the National Review urging the Republican Party to advocate populist, free-market reforms over tax loopholes, government subsidies and federal bailouts. That kind of Republican party, he writes “could not only unify and excite conservatives, but appeal to hardworking families in the purple and blue communities that President [Barack] Obama’s special-interest favoritism is leaving behind.” Mr. Lee is scheduled to continue the rollout with television appearances, town halls, a speech at the Heritage Foundation on April 30, and several pieces of legislation.

Will the real Republican Establishment please stand up? In the four years since the Supreme Court struck down fundraising regulations that effectively gave the Democratic and Republican parties a monopoly on large-scale political activity, a collection of Tea Party-affiliated organizations has arisen in Washington that competes with the GOP for campaign contributors, money and influence -- and over what legislation to push and which candidates to nominate. The groups, including the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund, have moved aggressively to kill legislation they oppose and oust incumbent Republicans they deem insufficiently conservative.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record
