It is becoming increasingly clear that Karl Rove is what’s wrong with the Republican Party and has about the same level of credibility in my estimation as do James Carville and Dick Morris. All hyper-partisan spin doctors who have been significantly wrong about political matters and policies. It appears that Rove may be backing a Jeb Bush candidacy although the Republicans and the rest of America have not fared well under the Bush leadership. Bush 41 was all about insiders, crony capitalism, spending, and secrecy. Bush 43 was all about insiders, crony capitalism, spending, and super-secrecy. Bush 43 being responsible for the events that gave us a nobody President, Barack Hussein Obama! While a Bush Presidency is preferable to another corrupt, socialist, ideologue being elected President, trusting another Bush and their cadre of insiders is foolhardy.
I also found Karl Rove’s attack on a fellow Republican interesting …
Karl Rove Attacks Fellow Republican
In June, Karl Rove was speaking at the Aspen Ideas Festival when he made a comment that is now shocking the conservative world:
“The most liberal Republican is Justin Amash of Michigan. Far more liberal than any other Republican… And why? Because he is a 100 percent, purist libertarian… and if it’s not entirely perfect, ‘I’m voting with [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi.’”
Open Congress, a website that tracks all of the votes of our Congressmen, rates Justin Amash as the House Republican who votes least with Nancy Pelosi. He also noted on twitter that he has a lifetime conservative score of 100% from the Club for Growth, Freedom Works, and the Cato Institute (which is a conservative leaning libertarian think tank).
To be fair to Rove, Representative Amash is a libertarian Republican. He does oppose the Republican Party more than most of his colleagues… but what does it say about Amash when he is the Republican who votes least with the Democrats and least with his own Party?
If Justin Amash is voting less with the Democrats than his own Party is, doesn’t that say something about the state of our Party?
It’s high time that we cut RINO’s like Karl Rove, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham from the Republican Party. They are dragging us ever closer to the Democrat Party on issues across the board, staring with our economic principles.
Let me ask it this way – Does the fact that Justin Amash is the Republican who votes least with his own party mean he is a liberal? Or, does the fact that Justin Amash is the Republican who votes least with Nancy Pelosi mean that the Republican Party in general has become too liberal?

Rove is the guy behind the image of Bush (43) as a cowboy in the Ronald Reagan model. A great trick in and of itself. To confuse a Yale “Bonesman,” who summered in Kennebunkport Maine, with a real Texas rancher is quite a feat. Especially since the “ranch” seemed to lack horses, cattle, and transportation was by pick-up truck and mountain bikes. And, where the photo op was of Bush cutting his most populous crop, sagebrush. This guy reeked of “preppie” arrogance. Ever playing the country-club gentlemen and not engaging the enemy in a true fight over ideology.
