Karl Rove: McCain goes "one step too far" in ads

By aileron - Posted on 14 September 2008

Seriously, how dishonest does a Republican's ads have to get before Karl Rove of all people starts calling him out on it?

Yes, yes , bwah bwah ha haaaaaa ..... (evil laugh)

Actually, Rove may be looking for another White House job .... 

Everyone seems to have his own way to endorse candidates. Wouldn't be surprised if that soundbit becomes part of a TV-Ad.

By the way, Rove also mentioned that McCain can't type on a keyboard and that the Obama-Ad statement "McCain can't send a Email" was insensitive. It is a nice spin-tactic, but it is also really stupid. Stephen Hawking is the best example. If you are conscious and can move something you can use a computer if you want to.

As I quoted on another thread, Rove sees the ads as going to far because they open the canididate up to attack in return.  LOL  Typical Rovian logic!
Karl Rove never made an genuine statement in his life. Whatever he says is calculated to produce a certain effect. It's a mistake to take anything that comes out of his mouth at face value. He is evil personified.
I was about to say this. I'm sure he's just cooking something to use later.


Hi Ellenta,

Agree with you - Rove is evil!

Not only by actions but he looks it too...


Without a soul. The whole bunch. And they are about to be replaced with a pair even worse. Sarah Palin is Bush with a mean streak.

You know conservatives have it bad when they admit that there is blame on both sides. I haven't heard them spin that line since Fox News' coverage of government "response" to Hurricane Katrina.

18hrs after Obama lets loose with a couple of tough shots, Republicans -- curiously silent on the subject up 'til now -- are suddenly all over the place lamenting the tone from both campaigns. Ya gotta love those guys. If the campaign gets so negative that negativity itself becomes an issue, McCain's people know they will take the worse hit. All of a sudden, it's time for a GREAT BIG HUGGGGG.


Nah, it's more like they're going to start blaming Obama for the negativity... just watch.
Mud slinging in politics is not new, but it sure seems like the stakes are so much higher now... maybe it always feels like that...but for their consistently way below the belt stuff to be so effective with so many people, at this stage, with so many failures they are responsible for is just mind boggling. Every single person I know, including a few that voted for Bush, TWICE, are all talking about how to move out of the country. If this is successful it will be the end of democracy as we know it. When SP gets in there and turns up the gas on incompetent, politicized appointments to the most powerful positions in government... I shudder. I've got my exit plan, and all three of my children are working on employment out of the country. I don't know what else to do, it isn't going to be safe here anymore, for many reasons.

See, it's this kind of raw paranoia that really ruins political discourse in this country.

If you or your children leave the country then farewell. While I'll be voting for Obama it will not be the end of the world if McCain and Palin win.

No kidding.
