It’s time for Karl Rove to float away in a balloon

karl_rove_smirk_rect-460x307

Ten years ago, Karl Rove was being celebrated as — was celebrating himself as — the architect of what he called a permanent Republican majority.

Today, not so much.

In the 2012 cycle, Rove spent some $300 million of other people’s money and accomplished not a damn thing with it. These are not people who appreciate spending a lot of money and getting nothing in return. They were led to believe that their money would purchase politicians who would return their phone calls immediately. Even more important, they wanted their investment to instill a good healthy fear in those in Washington who otherwise might cross them.

Instead, they got U.S. Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren.

Frank-Morgan-as-Professor-Marvel-aka-the-Wizard-of-Oz-and-Judy-Garland-as-Dorthey-Gale-in-the-Wizard-of-Oz1Of course, the real Wizard of Oz moment came Election Night on Fox, when Rove performed his epic meltdown over the numbers coming out of Ohio. If that did not permanently damage his reputation more than the losses themselves, it certainly cemented it.

You see, a good political strategist has to be willing to listen dispassionately to what the data tell him. He does not yell angrily at that data, like a distraught husband refusing to believe that his wife just left him. In that moment, Rove exposed himself as the petty figure that he is.

As Dorothy Gale, D-Kansas, famously put it, “Why, you’re not a wizard at all, you’re just a man! And you’re a very bad man for pretending to be a wizard.”

And after that, as I recall, the defrocked wizard floated away in a balloon, unable to steer a new direction because “I don’t know how it works!”

T. Cat — “Was Patraeus affair with a man or a woman?”

Either way, he’s not running for political office now.

He was being pushed to run for something, but said on several occasions that he had no interest in it.

Why are Jay’s “supporters” constantly trying to run off his readership? The man’s going to be out of a job if he can’t attract a sufficient quantity of readers and the bean counters don’t really care if that readership agrees with him or just complains about him. At the very least you should leave it up to him to disinvite folks.

Anyway since we were so succesful on the question mark thing earlier it strikes me that this is just the place to get the skinny on something that’s bugged me off and on, mostly off of course, but I saw one again today. When a house is for sale or rent and the sign on it says “no knock” does that mean you have to get an appointment or does it mean come on in?

I seem to recall that Petraeus’ father-in-law was some high muckety-muck general himself, but I don’t recall the specifics.

Just FWIW, there used to be (still might be) a ‘cheating culture’ in the military. Before my first overseas deployment, the old lifer sergeants explained the concept of ‘what happens in Korea stays in Korea.’ Petraeus was commissioned back in the 70s, so he likely came up the officer ranks in the same climate.

It’s certainly possible that Petraeus just figured he could get away with cheating on his wife.

Karl was just another arrogant face of the GOP whose smug demeanor turns moderates away. The GOP only has ONE voice for now, that’s the voice of the judgmental, unapproachable, and most importantly hypocritical far right. Until they can listen to their own moderates they can’t be expected to listen to the George Washington Liberals.

Bob: Oh and road rage has increased this week in Cobb, I’m a better Christian than you, county.

Yep — its mighty scary out here these days! Earlier today, UsinUK posted a link to this article by Eric Dondero that’s a hoot! You can find it here:

http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/11/eric-dondero-boycott-democrat-libertarian.html

Basically he said: All family and friends, even close family and friends, who I know to be Democrats are hereby dead to me. I vow never to speak to them again for the rest of my life, or have any communications with them. They are in short, the enemies of liberty. They deserve nothing less than hatred and utter contempt.

I strongly urge all other libertarians to do the same. Are you married to someone who voted for Obama, have a girlfriend who voted ‘O’. Divorce them. Break up with them without haste. Vow not to attend family functions, Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas for example, if there will be any family members in attendance who are Democrats.

Do you work for someone who voted for Obama? Quit your job. Co-workers who voted for Obama. Simply don’t talk to them in the workplace, unless your boss instructs you too for work-related only purposes. Have clients who voted Democrat? Call them up this morning and tell them to take their business elsewhere.

And, Karl Rove worked his evil even on contenders within his own party spawning the notion that John McCain had a black baby. Of course, he couldn’t use that one against Obama, but he produced and aired some of the most dispicable political ads I’ve seen,

He may have to get a real job now, but unfortunately, about the only thing he’s qualified to do with his dastardly credentials is to run for Congress.

I’ll never forget how my heart raced as I watched hundreds of millions of dollars given by the gazillionaires to buy the Oval Office, circling and finally being swallowed by the toilet.

It’s really pathetic, if it wasn’t so funny. Romney wrote off 47% as unproductive and lazy. A Congressman said today that those who voted for Obama were “ignorant” and a Tea Party spokesman from Texas said those who voted for Obama were “maggots.”

I call those who voted for Obama “winners!”

And, those who wrote off the 47% and lapeled those who voted for Obama “ignorant” and “maggots” — well, I call them poor LOSERS!

I keep playing the track over and over in my mind: hundreds of millions of dollars given by gazillionaires to buy the Oval Office circling and circling and circling and finally be swallowed up by the toilet. Then, I see Karl Rove with a caught in the headlights look on his face as he sees the numbers coming in — already worried about what he was going to tell the gazillionaire who gave him well over $300 million to buy the Oval Office and all they ended up with is a fairy-tale excuse by the master of spin and deceit.

I just doesn’t get any better than that!

GM,

You really can’t be as stupid / misdirected as you sound!

It is a sad commentary that Obama’s existence has caused more racial tension than ever before since MLK passed!

Using comments associated with race doesn’t help anyone!!!!!!!

I love libs, their thinking allows me to know that at least 47 % is normal!

I can’t wait to inform my employees that their healthcare costs will increase at least 30%!

I wonder what “debbiedoright” does for a living. Running her business, NOT!!!!!!

Williebkind said: “Ok, lets talk about Karl Rove and forget about the layoffs that are coming.”

Well gosh then, Willie, lets just get carried bodily into the NEXT Chapter of Reich Wing Fantasy then, shall we?

True, they WANT us to focus on their Obama-grudge-layoffs, don’t they? They WANT us to be intimidated by their own sour grapes, don’t they?

So yes, I suppose we can follow THEIR Yellow Brick Road even further into the dire woods, where the only signs in evidence read, “I’d turn back, if I were you.”

“More companies laying off employees” said: “I can’t wait to inform my employees that their healthcare costs will increase at least 30%!”

And you think they will handily FORGET the thrust of business in the last decades to THROW OVER the mandate they themselves took on (when hiring was better for the worker), to pick up the healthcare costs themselves?

Funny, NOW the DESIRED “norm” is that the worker pays… And that is also the preferred avenue for revenge, for votes that business doesn’t like, it seems…

$300 million to buy an election….I thought the Republicans disfavored stimulus packages.

But seriously, one could argue the defeat would have been even greater if not for spending black money as it was spent.

For those of us outside the bubble,
NACE reports that employers expect to hire 13 percent more new college graduates from the Class of 2013 than they did from the Class of 2012..

“Employers in pharmaceutical manufacturing; computer and electronics manufacturing; retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; management consulting; and professional services anticipate double-digit increases in hiring.”

Well, Karl Robe may not have been able to win any elections, but he must have made a lot of money off the billionaires. I hope he’s paying himself a handsome salary. Let the billionaires be “livid”.
