When a person amasses too much power, they often believe they are indestructible.
What Karl Rove and company did last week in the New York Times, claiming that their new “Conservative Victory Project” would cure the ills of a disappointing campaign cycle, is laughable. The so-called “Conservative Victory Project” is nothing more than an attempt by establishment Republicans to cull the conservative movement. Why does Rove think he has a monopoly on wanting to win?
At least Karl Rove and company are finally out front with their disdain for the conservative movement, and I am thankful for it. The battle lines are finally drawn, and conservatives should look at the New York Times article as our Lexington and Concord. This battle will be a long, hard slog against the establishment. Just this week, a Rove henchman attacked conservative leader Brent Bozell. But we will prevail, because we actually believe in core principles and a cause greater than our egos and money.
Karl Rove and his cabal would sell out on any issue if it means more power in the short-term, for they don’t stand for anything. Let’s just look at Rove’s record of accomplishments for Big Government causes. Rove supported the fiscally crippling expansion of Medicare, the anti-free speech McCain-Feingold campaign finance act, and the plan to reward illegal behavior when it comes to immigration reform. Under Rove’s watch, federal spending was out of control. Rove is no conservative; his decisions are made free of principle, with the deciding factor always being how he and the failing establishment try to cling to power.
America is in trouble. Supporting candidates who are willing to come to Washington to increase our national debt will only hasten our decline. Conservative donors must think twice about giving Rove money in support of this road to nowhere. Of course, those in the establishment will say that Rove was the “architect” of President George W. Bush’s electoral wins. But you only have to look at Bush’s second term when Rove was the Deputy Chief of Staff and see he was an architect of disaster. President Bush was mired in the 30% approval range through most of his second term. Those low approval numbers spurned by the genius of Karl Rove brought us President Barack Obama and Obamacare. The opposite of a permanent Republican majority, you might say.
Thanks to Rove and company, conservatives are uniting. We must beat back the attempted establishment’s coup d’état of the conservative mantel. Take to Twitter, Facebook, and other social media avenues to shine the light on Karl Rove’s cabal. #WAR
