Just stick with he's a secret muslim terrorist marxist socialist who can't name the 57 states and was born in kenya with indonesian citizenship and no birth certificate.



And you wonder why your party has zero credibility with most Americans.

Looking forward to the nuttiness of seeing Karl denounced high and low as a RINO.

Karl Rove is trying to be the Conservative voice of treason, warning fellow party members trying to link Obama to the Secret Service Scandal and GSA was a bad idea

Fixed for our GOP readers

didn't he have to walk back an anti-palin comment on fox a while ago?

I remember the good old days when people thought he was as crazy as the GOP got.

A few days ago on Drudge there was a big headline that a hooker in Columbia was sent to the President's hotel. On reading the story, it was 5 days before he got there.

I love the pic they used
 
2012-04-25 11:27:32 AM  
I think it's too late for his warning given that his fellow party members are already calling this the most corrupt government in history and suggesting that the hookers were really Russian spies.
 
2012-04-25 11:30:40 AM  
Russian spies?

What year decade is this?

If Rove thinks it's a bad idea he's probably aware of how it could be used against them and/or there are some Bush era skeletons in the closet.

ThatGuyGreg: Russian spies?

It's 1962 according to the GOP. I'd warn Obama to stay out of Dallas next year.

Karl Rove is not the voice of reason. He wasn't the voice of reason when he wanted to distance from Sarah Palin. He's a brilliant political strategist (and total douchebag) and actions like this are just him trying to focus the GOP on strategies more likely to succeed.

Diogenes: there are some Bush era skeletons in the closet.


If I was Obama, I would have told Bush, Cheney, Rove, and frankly everyone else to keep their mouths shut for the next 8 years unless they want to wind up in prison charged with war crimes.

Bush, to his credit, hasn't said a peep since he left office.

I hear obama has a picture of himself handing out hundreds to the SS guys along with a treasure map, with an X marked with "best hookers in colombia" on it

Why won't you release the photo obama?

Even for Republican derp, this doesn't make any sense. So Fartbongo had nothing to do with killing bin Laden, but he should be able to stop his Secret Service officers from going out and banging hookers?

It's a stretch even by the batshiat crazy "logic" the Republican Party uses for these things.

I don't think anyone ever thought he was crazy. He was just an evil, and unfortunately adept, strategist.

2012-04-25 02:19:35 PM  
Ham likes to pick and choose among the crazy slur-fests that the GOP comes up with. Sometimes I think he just throws darts. "OK go with this one and this one, refute this one. That way I sound wise."
 
2012-04-25 02:22:07 PM  
Try going on fox.com and find the most far removed from politics article you can then go read the comments, more than half of them will be blaming Obama for whatever the article was about. Try it out and go look at the octomom article they have up now.
 
2012-04-25 02:24:22 PM  
I may believe that Karl Rove is a scum bag and a detestable human being, but you ignored his political advise at your own peril.

more Americans are republicans than democrats and they gained ,4% since February

Masso: I may believe that Karl Rove is a scum bag and a detestable human being, but you ignored his political advise at your own peril.


yep, Rove is ALWAYS the voice of reason when it comes to advising the GOP on political matters. Mofo knows what he's doing when it comes to politics.
 
2012-04-25 02:28:24 PM  
claiming a political opponent fathered an illegitimate child is, however, just peachy.
 
2012-04-25 02:28:58 PM  
Look at Karl Rove here trying to order the horses back into their flaming barn.

Look at him and laugh.

What is he going to try for an encore?

Order the tide to turn back? Try to teach the Tea Party to spell?

/Personally, I'd go with the former over the latter there.
//Ultimately, both are impossible, of course, but the tide thing would be less frustrating.
 
2012-04-25 02:29:24 PM  
Sounds like someone just realized that weeding out the bad seeds in the secret service helps the President.
 
2012-04-25 02:29:53 PM  
Issa portrayed it as evidence of "the most corrupt government in history.

Meh. More like the 2nd most corrupt of the 21st century.

Yep. When you foster a culture of fingerpointing and hate, that promotes a winning at all costs political stragety, don't be surprised when it turns on you, chews you up and uses your corpse as a stepping stool to higher political power, even if it is short sighted and short lived.

Neither one of these look good for the administration - but to link the administration with either one is a bit far fetched.....now linking Fast and Furious with Holder and this administration is dead on.

FTFA: "High-ranking Republican Rep. John Mica (FL) claimed the White House "knew about it, did nothing, kept it quiet" until forced to 'fess up. He then admitted that the scandal helps him attack Obama. "No, no, I'm not scoring political points," Mica said on Fox. "But I am labeling [President Obama] as a big spender."

$43 is big spending on hookers? Well, to be fair, most Republican representatives want their closet male whores for free.
 
2012-04-25 02:37:56 PM  
The word "conservative" and the phrase "voice of reason" have no business being in the same sentence.
 
2012-04-25 02:42:02 PM  
His ego is just bruised because they don't need him to decide what ball they're going to take and run crazy with anymore. He spun it up and now it's a perpetual derp machine that defies the laws of physics (fitting, since they don't believe in science).

Karl has not gotten over the fact that the "permanent Republican majority" never happened.

Anyone notice that TPM has basically become WND-lite? 95% of their posts are about Republicans.

More people are not Republicans than Republicans.

Simple logic would suggest that nobody who has bodyguards on the payroll would have any interest in seeing said bodyguards be banging Colombian hookers on the side, and would quickly fire those bodyguards and get someone who took the job of keeping them from getting shot a little more seriously.

But you know, let's not bring logic into this.
