After Declaring War on Tea Party, Karl Rove Frets GOP Estab Candidates Not Getting Enough Donations

September 20, 2014

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates.  Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama’s “job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican… each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is still in doubt.” After declaring war on conservatives and the Tea Party last year, Rove now realizes that the very voters the establishment trashed are not donating to more moderate and establishment Senate candidates in states like North Carolina and Colorado. Rove says that “Republican candidates and groups must step up” to reduce the fundraising gap with Democrats. He said “Republicans must reach a certain sufficiency of advertising in the next six weeks” to “tip the needle in the GOP’s direction.” Rove said “that will only happen if Republicans open their wallets to candidates whom they may have never met, and, if

    I changed registration to Conservative and no longer donate to the GOP as well

  • James Slagowski says:

    They called me last week to contribute and I told them “NO, because the Republican Party has strayed from the principles that made this country great”. The establishment can go to where the sun does not shine as I consider them all part of the Big Government Party and it has 2 wings, left and right, but they all create more and more regulations and debt.

  • pilgrimson says:

    I signed off of the republican Party long ago and re- listed as independent.
    Haven’t donated since they trashed the tea party. Only donate to individual candidates as I vet them to be conservative. enough for me.
    When I get mail from the RNCC. and it includes a self stamped envelope I fill it with trash mail and a note telling them where they can stuff it.

    As far as I’m concerned Conservatism is the only answer to the problems our Nation faces. It should be an easy sell with the right messengers. I don’t donate to Republicans as many are too much like Democrats–liberal ones at that. Like SlipperCity my money will go to those with a Conservative message. I don’t like to lose but insulting me will not get my money nor my vote.

      I’m listening.
      I don’t know about that Rove clown, though.

    The problem is…There are too many elites thinking they are the ones to collect for their select candidates. viz; Ran Paul, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Allen West, Reince Prebis etc. etc. etc. All good people…I believe they should all get together into one request and make it simple…

  • sutherncon says:

    Thanks to loud mouths like Karl Rove, I will never again donate to a GOP or PAC initiative. Any donation I make will be directly to the candidate. Thinking he is so knowledgeable and liked, Rove has made a lot of enemies for the GOP.

  • SlipperCity says:

    Amen! I had been donating to the RNCC, my local Republican groups and candidates. Since the Republican establishment has decided to hate my conservative views and the fact that I am a member of several Tea Parties, I no longer donate to Republican political groups. If I see a candidate I like, I donate directly to that candidate.

      Good point Slipper, I had them remove my name from their donor roll.
      I now give to candidates directly.
      Especially after the Thad Cochran screwing the GOP gave to the Tea Party Candidate.

      I did the same when Dear Leader was re-elected. I had been a repub all my life, but I won’t give them a nickel now.

      I select conservatives and a few groups to support.

      The RINOs are not interested in defending us or the Constitution. As bad as the Marxist Democrats, but for different reasons. Neither one honors their oath of office.

    As long as the establishment wants to kick it’s strongest segment in the face and state that we deserve to be punched in the nose, then the establishment should not expect us to support it. Even a dog eventually learns the difference between being tripped over and being kicked.
