Karl Rove's Foot in Mouth Disease

Karl Rove, called the brains of two George W. Bush Presidential election victories, is quickly relegating himself to insignificance in a conservative Republican majority.  He has failed to recognize the paradigm shift in voters toward the party labels.  It is not about Republican vs. Democrat.  It is Constitutional conservatism vs. statism.  We don't care how many Republicans are in Congress, especially when over a dozen of them are big government statists.  We want small government, conservatives who are grounded in Constitutional principles.  Unless, or until he comes to that realization, he will be irrelevant in a "new" Republican Party.

Rove’s Palin criticism provokes backlash from supporters who label him Biden of the right
By Jon Ward - The Daily Caller

Sarah Palin and her allies have not taken kindly to comments by Karl Rove this week that the former Alaska governor is not ready to be president, firing back at the former Bush White House political adviser in a fight that illustrates the simmering tensions within the Republican Party.

Palin herself made a crack about Rove Thursday but refrained from making pointed comments. But nationally syndicated conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin went after Rove with passion.

“I have to say, nice guy aside, this guy needs to get off the stage. He is yesterday’s operative,” Levin said. “There is a movement going on in this country, a movement that is trying to do serious things and substantive things, and this guy’s just running around, gassing off at the mouth, attacking some of the most conservative candidates in the field.”

“You know, Karl Rove is sort of becoming our Joe Biden, how many times he puts his foot in his mouth,” said Levin, an attorney who was chief of staff to the attorney general in the Reagan administration. “I think he’s got a Joe Biden problem.”

“There is a conservative uprising taking place, a conservative rebellion against Washington, against big government . And I don’t happen to think Rove and those guys are exactly the best face to put on it, because they had nothing to do with it. And in part – you want to know the truth? – in part it’s a reaction to them,” Levin said (see below for a transcript of Levin’s remarks).
