Karl Rove Vs. the 'Far Right'

I stopped watching Sean Hannity during the last election cycle because he always had Karl Rove on, and I got tired of listening to Rove regurgitate the "Republican Establishment" line. It is the Republican Establishment as well as the Democrat Party who have gotten this country into the economic and social mess we now face. Let Rove and his ilk leave the Republican Party to the Tea Party. Conservatives are tired of the SOS he spews.

I agree about Rove. The Republican Establishment evidently likes being the minority party because they go out of their way to accommodate the Dems every single time. I guess they're afraid of not being "liked" and not being invited to the DC parties. We need more people like Cruz who says what he thinks and supports conservative values all the time. I think we can predict that on immigration, for example, the Repub Establ. will take the easy way out and the next step to destroy this country.

Well said.
Too bad Hannity cannot come up with an original thought on his own.

IF there was a dollar to be made in "original thought" he might but I have serious doubts as to the strength of Hannity, Limbaugh, Gallagher, Davis, Medved et al's commitment to "conservative principles" I suspect that if "liberal principles" got higher ratings a lot of these talkers would switch sides. They live in a world that will be largely unchanged regardless of what happens in DC unlike working class folks who have a lot of their own "skin in the game"
If I were launching a new conservative venture, the last venue I'd choose for the announcement would be the New York Times. Karl Rove has gone to the Times to announce that he has created a new "conservative" entity "to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts."

Rove argues that Republican fortunes have been ruined by "far-right conservatives," but he's shamelessly calling this entity the "Conservative Victory Project." Yes, and I could call myself Ray Lewis, but it doesn't make it so.

Whaddaya know? The liberal Democrats at the Times love this idea....
