Karl Rove Dismisses Tea Party
Backlash: We Need ‘Fewer Christine
O’Donnells And More Rand Pauls’

Mediaite, by Meenal Vamburkar

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/17/2013 2:44:12 PM

Through his new Conservative Victory Project, aimed at backing conservative candidates who will actually win elections, Karl Rove has upset some conservatives and Tea Partiers. This weekend, he paid a visit to Fox News Sunday, where Wallace confronted him with some of that backlash. Rove said his favorite reaction was that of Mark Levin, who called him “queen for a day.” They did spent $30 million on Tea Party candidates, Rove said, specifically citing Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). “Look, Todd Akin was not a Tea Party candidate,” he added. Their objective, he said,

I disagree, the Republican party is stronger at the local level then the national party, so why should I think national intervention would help?

Akin was Claire McCaskill´s candidate. O´Donnell and Angle were just nuttier than can be. I´ve always felt the problem is turnout. Primary turnout is usually so low a fringe candidate can rally a small group of supporters and win.

How many tea party candidates won and how many lost. The focus is always on Angle, Aikin and O´Donnell. Karl Rove is a tub of lard desperate to stay in the lime light.

Instead of always blaming the right, how about pointing fingers to the real enemies on the left. We all know the left is dirty and the media knows how to destroy. Angle lost when Reid imported the union vote to Nevada. O´Donnell did herself a disfavor by acting naive. Once that happened the media took over her campaign. Akin should have never been on the ticket. Some blame goes to the GOP but more to McCaskill who did what she had to do to keep her seat. Let´s face it, the Dems do a better job of finding ways to win.
It´s time to toughen up and turn the page.

Excuse me Karl, but Todd Akin did win general elections since he was in the U.S. House of Representatives for 12 years. I´m not saying Akin was the Senate candidate I wanted but Karl Rove speculating on Akin´s murder is beyond the pale. I simply won´t support Rove people.

Don´t consultants like Karl Rove make their money on how much they get others to contribute PLUS all the media buys? Surely he has made enough money by now from the wealthy donors he has shaken down. My big question is these wealthy donors aren´t stupid men...pretty soon they are going to want some action for their money...not just Karl´s dud candidates who don´t win.

Well duh with the other alternative being Charlie Crist, wow, hard decision!!! Karl is one desperate-looking, bing, walking talking point. Stick a fork in him. He is done.

Rove, you helped destroy O´Donnell prior to the election with your loud mouth on national TV because she beat your $$$$$$$$$ man. Now, instead of always talking about Murdock and Akin, Rove should mention the 10 to 12 he endorsed who LOST in the general. The only 3 new Senators inducted as a result of the 2012 election were endorsed by Gov. Palin and the T.E.A. movement participants with the establishment/elites/Rove endorsing their peer in the primary, i.e., Dewherst.

His uncanny resemblance to Sturmbannfuhrer Arnold Ernst Toht, the Gestapo agent, in "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" is, quite frankly, doing great harm to the GOP´s ongoing efforts to "win the hearts and minds" of the American People!

It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization.

Nobody was surprised when Attorney General Eric Holder decided the special prosecutor requested by Sen. Ted Cruz to investigate the IRS scandal isn´t needed. Why? Because Holder and his boss in the Oval Office refuse to make the same mistake that led to Richard Nixon´s undoing in the Watergate scandal. Nixon allowed his attorney general to name a special prosecutor to investigate Watergate, confident that his Justice Department loyalists could contain any ensuing damage. But Nixon miscalculated and it ended disastrously for him with the infamous Saturday Night Massacre. Nixon fired special prosecutor Archibald Cox, thus precipitating resignations from Attorney

Another day, another unwelcome poll for the White House. Pew reports that Hispanic support for Obamacare has lurched downwards from 60-plus percent in September 2013 to 47 percent. That matters a lot, because it possibly means there’s less chance that the GOP’s campaign against Obamacare will prompt the large Hispanic turnout that President Barack Obama needs in November to keep Sen. Harry Reid in charge of the Senate. So far, Democrats have expected Latinos’ support for Obamacare will help them vote Democratic in November. But the poll showing tepid support for Obamacare might force Obama to spend more time and money pushing Obamacare up

American Medical Association: Obamacare

The American Medical Association is protesting an Obamacare provision it argues will leave doctors with the bill for up to two months of unpaid care. The provision requires insurers to allow patients with federally-subsidized health insurance plans a 90-day grace period to pay their premiums before canceling the coverage. Insurers are on the hook for the first 30 days of care, if the customer never pays up, but doctors will be stuck without payment for any services between 30 and 90 days, until the coverage is canceled. The American Medical Association was a strong supporter of Obamacare. “If a patient

By the time the second World Trade Center tower collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001, the whole world was watching it. We may assume that Vladimir Putin was watching. Mr. Putin, a quick calculator of political realities, would see that someone was going to get hit for this, and hit hard. He was right of course. The Bush presidency became a war presidency that day, and it pounded and pursued the Islamic fundamentalists of al Qaeda without let-up or apology. During that time, it was reported that Vladimir Putin, a former KGB officer in East Germany, deeply regretted the fall of the Soviet

Oh by the way, while Washington is debating whether enrollment in Obamacare is terrible or just awful, the Washington Examiner brings to our attention a February 2014 cost report by eHealthInsurance that reveals the premiums for private health insurance policies (those outside of Obamacare) have risen by 39 to 56 percent for individual and family plans. And The Hill’s Elise Viebeck writes this morning that “Health industry officials say Obamacare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration.” So Obamacare has resulted in higher costs, limited plans, restricted doctor options, a reduction

The objects are indistinct but of "reasonable size," with the largest about 24 meters (79 feet) across, said John Young, general manager of emergency response for the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.

WASHINGTON -- The crisis over Crimea is more than a dispute over whether the strategic Black Sea peninsula should be considered Russian or Ukrainian. At its root is a deeper issue: Russia´s simmering anger over its treatment by the West since the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union. Russia´s biggest grievance has been the absorption into the NATO alliance not only of former Soviet allies, such as Poland and Romania, but also three republics that were part of the Soviet Union: Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The last straw was a European Union move to draw Ukraine closer to the West through

Michigan Capitol Confidential found an interesting, and totally unconstitutional, clause in the contract between the district and the Michigan Education Association local that requires the district to provide “special consideration” to “those of the non-Christian faith” in hiring decisions: The contract ran from 2011 to 2012 but was extended to 2017. The teachers belong to the Ferndale Education Association, a division of theMichigan Education Association. Regarding promotion to

Penn is famous—or infamous—for being the chief strategist for Hillary Clinton´s 2008 presidential campaign of inevitability that turned into a colossal failure. That effort was marked by hubris, lousy messaging, poor strategic planning, and legendary internal tensions—including back-biting, leaks, and fierce inside politics—that many within the politerati blamed, fairly or not, on Penn.

Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at
