The Rove, The Rove, The Rove Is on Fire

January 13th, 2014 - 7:17 am

ROVE ON

Here’s the man himself on Fox News Sunday:

“There are reasons why conservatives had disagreements with Chris Christie, I don’t think that the tea party is going to seize upon Fort Lee and the George Washington Bridge as their defining difference with Christie,” Rove opined. “In fact, I think his handling of this, being straightforward, taking action — saying, ‘I’m responsible’ — firing the people probably gives him some street cred with some tea party Republicans, who say that’s what we want in a leader, somebody who steps up and takes responsibility.”

The scandal doesn’t prove anything one way or the other, except perhaps to confirm what people always suspected about New Jersey politics. Or politics in general — everybody knows it ain’t beanbag. What we do know for sure is that Christie has put himself on a tightrope which the MSM and/or DNC (but I repeat myself) will be happy to knock him off of. There is no net.

Conservatives and Tea Party types would probably help with the push, if it turns out that Christie is lying about not knowing until last week what was going on. But Rove is right when he says it’s not our “defining difference.” Christie is probably as conservative as anyone who could get elected in New Jersey, but unless he and his donor base buy his way to the GOP nomination, he is simply too far to the left to win it. Christie makes Mitt Romney look like Ronald Reagan and that is our defining difference with him.

Dear GOP-

If you want to win elections, listen to what ever karl Rove has to say. And then do the exact opposite.

Karl Rove is pronouncing himself more and more into irrelevancy.

Oh the sweet irony. Picture Chris Christie walking arm in arm with dear leader after "super storm sandy"-- (a Cat.1 storm that we in the gulf don't even bother taking in our lawn furniture), tears, bomber jacket and all and now the Feds investigating Christie for misuse of storm relief funds. I love it.

Having had my house destroyed by storm surge and my mom's incinerated in Sandy, perhaps I disagree. My insurance inspector was a Cajun guy, and he said the damage was way worse because it affected so many more houses with surge. Because Sandy was so large even if not powerrful it kept in 2 moon tides in along with a huge storm surge. The odds a storm comes in on a moon tide is once every 28 days, and that it is large enough to hold in those 2 of 3 moon cycles way longer than that.Would readily acknowledge as a wind and rain event it wasn't that big a deal, but those tides changed the whole picture.
