Cornyn And Rove Must Go
Dwayne Stovall, one of seven Republicans challenging liberal Republican John Cornyn of Texas, is referencing Karl Rove’s support of Cornyn as another red flag blatantly waved in the face of We the People. Stovall said that Karl Rove has “kind of worn out his welcome with the Tea Party.”
Worn out his welcome, you say? That’s about as polite as you can put it and call Rove a traitor in the same breath. Need I remind you that an unimpeachable source confided in me, over dinner long years ago, that Rove was incensed because he had been forced to use Christian conservatives to get Bush reelected in 2004. Did you get that? Rove was not pleased that he had to use Christian conservatives to get Bush reelected.
It was Rove who told a group of billionaire donors that Tea Party backed candidate Rep. Todd Aiken, MO, should be murdered. Of course, he later apologized, but it was only after Phyllis Schlafly, myself, and others hammered him in print and on-air that he did so. And even at that, I contend his apology amounted to nothing more than crocodile tears.
Rove has publicly targeted Tea Party candidates We the People have supported and he continues to do so. Who doesn’t recall his Fox News meltdown when Tea Party backed candidate Christine O’Donnell of Delaware defeated incumbent Mike Castle in the primaries? Rove was forced to walk back his threats that O’Donnell would be frozen out of receiving RNC campaign finance support. Castle, who is further to the left than the late Arlen Specter, was Rove’s choice for Delaware.
Rove has made it clear that only GOP establishment candidates will receive campaign finance support going forward. It was Rove who led the so-called Republican Congressional leadership to abandon all efforts to defund obamacare. Saying instead that talking about it would be enough to show people how bad it was. The problem with that strategy is we know how bad obamacare is. Now we need it defunded and repealed — something he has instructed Republicans not to do.
And while we have only smudged fingerprints to go on as evidence, most of my colleagues and I are, without hesitation, convinced Rove sabotaged Herman Cain’s candidacy.
John Cornyn has long overstayed his welcome, and he needs to be put out to pasture where he can graze comfortably on his taxpayer funded six-figure lifetime retirement benefits, and the millions of dollars he amassed while holding elected office.
Cornyn claims that Rove isn’t involved in his campaign which is dishonest of him to suggest. If Rove is telling people to support Cornyn’s candidacy, and telling them to vote for Cornyn then it isn’t ipse dixit to argue Rove is involved in his campaign. In fact, it is dishonest and morally opprobrious to say he isn’t involved in Cornyn’s campaign. But it apparently isn’t out of character for Cornyn.
It’s shaping up to be quite a battle for Cornyn’s seat in Texas. The most important thing is for Texans to remember that Rove has undermined Ted Cruz’s efforts to stand up for the ordinary citizens, and Rove is supporting one of the establishment’s golden boys in Cornyn. Which should say to the voters if Rove fights against Ted Cruz, Cornyn will do the same thing if he gets reelected?
We need people like Ted Cruz. We’ve had more than our fill of the Roves and Cornyns, and it’s time to send them and their kind packing.
