Conservative Legend and Icon Blasts Karl Rove

Conservative HQ

Establishment Republican political guru Karl Rove’s plan to make himself “the decider” of which Republican primary candidates are “electable” and which are “unelectable” continues to take a battering from leaders of the conservative movement.

Phyllis SchlaflyFirst Lady of the conservative movement Phyllis Schlafly became the latest prominent conservative to oppose Rove’s self-appointment to the role of arbiter of who wins and who loses in GOP primaries by observing in a World Net Daily column that, “Of the 31 races in which Rove aired TV ads, Republicans won only 9, so his donors got little return on their investment… Rove’s 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.”

Perhaps most importantly, Schlafly also noted that “Rove built his reputation on his role in electing George W. Bush, but President Bush and his phony ‘Compassionate Conservatism’ did almost nothing for conservative goals. Bush tried hard to put the U.S. in an open-borders ‘North American Union’ with Mexico and Canada, and he inflicted our school kids with federal control over education called ‘No Child Left Behind’.”

And that’s really the crux of the matter.

    Phyllis is a tough old gal, and I’m grateful we have her. She also has THE check the archbishop of Chicago wrote for Zero’s community organizing training according to Ann B, I think.

    Phyllis Schlafly is sharp as ever and accurately identified the progressive policies George W. Bush. Glad she can still give liberals fits.

    Carl Rove is a LOSER, not conservative, and needs to be shunned until he goes away

    Hopefully donors will wake up soon

    “Carl Rove is a LOSER, not conservative, and needs to be shunned until he goes away.”

    What nonsense. A thimble would hold what you know about The Rove … with plenty of room left for what else you know about other political issues.

    But you are entitled to your wacky opinions.
