If there’s one thing crusty old conservatives know, it’s “fresh” and “new.” As in “fresh pseudo-scandals and slander every night on FOX “News,” and “brand new horrors, atrocities and corruption” by the hour. Karl Rove, then, can…
Is onetime Republican political maven Karl Rove too transparent for his or his party’s own good? As I noted here, Rove was back to his old tricks recently in masterfully conducting the new and old media orchestras when he made charge he could later…
There’s an old joke about a skunk who lifts his tail and, as bystanders hold their noses, says, “So do you!” Once again, Bush-era Republican maven Karl Rove has lifted his tail and altered the (ahem) atmospherics in America’s political room —…

September 25, 2013- Ever since last week's reversal of former GOP Rep. Tom DeLay's 2010 money laundering convictions by a 2-to-1 partisan decision of a three-judge Texas appeals court panel, we have been contrasting the Texas Republican's treatment in the judicial system with that of Alabama's former Democratic Governor Don Siegelman.

September 8, 2013- Fox News contributor Karl Rove repeated long-debunked falsehoods about the military response to the September 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya.
During Fox News Sunday on September 8, a panel discussion turned to the upcoming anniversary of the attacks in Benghazi. During the segment, Rove falsely asserted that no military assets were ordered to assist the Americans under attack in Benghazi. Rove soon raised his voice and, over and over again, repeated his false claim that no help was sent to Benghazi.
Ginni Thomas and her conservative allies have launched a stealth attack on the GOP's top strategist.

June 21, 2013- Highlighting the split between big-business Republicans and their more socially conservative brethren, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) on Friday mocked Karl Rove and his allies at the super PAC American Crossroads as a bunch of out-of-touch "fat cats" who spend their time sipping drinks at country clubs.
If they paid more attention to regular people, Sessions argued on the Senate floor, Rove and his pals might have advised Mitt Romney to take a more aggressive stance on immigration, which could have put the wealthy former governor in the White House.
Instead, American Crossroads and its affiliated nonprofit, Crossroads GPS, spent more than $100 million in a losing effort that Sessions belittled.
