“The Architect” Should Try Calling George Soros if He Needs Some Money

by Steve MacDonald

Breitbart is reporting that Karl Rove’s phalanx of Tea Party hating political projects has seen an 98% decrease in fundraising since he “officially” raised his flag against the movement.

As Politico notes, though, “Rove added a third group to the network in 2013, forming the Conservative Victory Project to counterbalance the influence of Tea Party and conservative grassroots forces in GOP primaries.”

Since then, as Breitbart News reported, “Rove’s organization has been so tarnished among the conservative base that candidates fear donors will not contribute to any group associated with him.” Aware of this, Rove’s Crossroads network has reloaded with groups that share donors but are technically not affiliated on paper with them.

Rove’s Conservative Victory Project, whose only goal is to defeat conservatives, is doing the Hillop Public Solutions jig–creating additional groups with no direct association, but run by Rove’s people and fed from the same pot of cursed gold.

Also, from Tony Lee

According to the New York Times, Crossroads “appears to be testing” its “new approach” in Kentucky. The Conservative Victory Project, the group formed to take on conservative candidates, has stayed out of Kentucky’s Senate primary between Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin. Instead, a group called “Kentuckians for Strong Leadership” is curiously backing McConnell while getting most of its cash from Crossroads donors. It is “legally separate from Crossroads;” but Stephen Law, the president of Crossroads, sits on its board, and the two groups share a treasurer.

Crossroads may set up “similar groups in races in which its brand may be less appealing to voters or donors.” The Times notes that this is an approach Crossroads may have to take because Rove’s organization has been so tarnished among the conservative base that candidates fear donors will not contribute to any group associated with him.

Talk about an admission of guilt.

Yeah, we hate the tea party, and that’s apparently a bad thing, but we are so committed to a place at the kiddie table in DC (and to his credit it is avery nice kiddie table) we will engage in whatever subterfuge is necessary to retain even a fleeting hold on power.

There are Democrats going “see, we told you Rove was evil.”

He always put politics before policy. He was always willing to say or do whatever people needed to hear to win.  And his most famous boss, G.W. Bush was no conservative, though he was a far cry better than either Gore or Kerry, which is a sad testament to where we have landed politically because Obama, while unique, is worse than either Gore or Kerry would have been.

The end result is business as usual, centralization of power and wealth, and the sound of vultures feeding on the carrion corpse of liberty.  Rove is just lowering himself further into progressive politics to stand side by side with the socialist left who will also do or say anything to stay in power.

Democrats should not be saying “I told you so” with regard to Rove, they should be concerned that they will be fighting more and more for the attention of the same citizens, like brown shirts and red shirts fighting over only slightly different flavors of despotism.

    I don’t hate Karl Rove but I am very much enjoying the fact that he is getting what he deserves with donations. Don’t mess with the tea-party.
