This is one of my few opinion pieces. We all watched in horror as the Republicans, even some we know to be conservative, trashed Christine O'Donnell. Karl Rove was unrepentant last night as he was interviewed by Greta van Sustern. With what he was saying I turned to my husband and said,"he's the new Newt." Earlier in the day I had compared him to David Gergan and called him the new MSM "conservative spokesman." I know the Democrats and media are loving him.
While listening to Rush on Tuesday someone called to inform Rush and his listeners that Karl Rove worked on Castle's campaign and had asked the Delaware Tea Party to back Castle as more electable. This is from Michelle Malkin with a better take on it:
At O’Donnell’s victory speech, she invited a 9/12 patriot to speak. He sent a special message right back to Rove, recounting how Rove had met with Delaware 9/12-ers and Tea Party folks to try and convince them to back the “more electable” candidate. “No one is going to tell us how to take care of business,” the 9/12-er said he told Rove. And now, he observed, the “more electable” candidate Rove wanted them to vote for has been…unelected..
Rove showed a blantantly defiant attitude on Greta, no remorse. I thought his demeanor showed he knew he was wrong, but there was no backing down. Just more bashing and saying why O"Connell could not possibly win. A very elitist attitude by one of the Washington "establishment" who definitely wants to keep it that way.Rove Tried to Cut a Deal For Castle With Tea Party- Teaparty News- The Collier BrothersSources at the Christine O’Donnell victory party revealed to The Freedomist that in December of last year Karl Rove met with Tea Party leaders in Dover, Delaware trying to get them to cut a “deal” in which they would leave Mike Castle alone and NOT support O’Donnell.The Freedomist has also learned that Rove was allegedly acting as an operative, although in what capacity it is not known, even as he is playing the role of a political analyst on Fox New in a fair and balanced way.
