Karl Rove laments Democratic fundraising edge, perhaps it is time for him to look in the mirror

September 21, 2014

 Last week a poll came out which stated that the Democrats had a 51% chance of holding on to the Senate after the November election. Shortly thereafter Karl Rove warned Republicans that their chances of taking over the Senate was in doubt.

  Today Karl Rove came out again and warned the Republicans that the Democrats have a fundraising advantage at this point in the campaign.

  Here is what he had to say:

“The dynamics are good for Republicans — enthusiasm is high, Obama is low,” said Rove, whose Crossroads outfits have already spent millions on Senate races.

“The one advantage that Democrats have is a cash advantage,” Rove said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Between Labor Day and Election Day, they have booked  $107 million in television advertising. Republicans have $25 million less.”

  Karl_Rove425x283Karl Rove is right–the dynamics are good for the Republicans. The President is not popular and the Republicans seem to be energized to vote in November. Why then are the Democrats out fundraising the Republicans?

  The answer is pretty simple in my opinion and it can be summed up in two words–Karl Rove.

  Karl Rove–and we cannot let the rest of the Republican establishment off the hook here either for John Boehner has been punishing conservatives in the Republican party–has declared war on the Tea Party.

  Back in February of 2013 Karl Rove backed a Super PAC which was designed to protect the incumbent establishment Republicans from more conservative challengers in the primary, and the results of this decision, as of February of 2014, was a drop in donations to the Republican party of 98%. And apparently the decline in fundraising is continuing to this day if Karl Rove’s figures are correct and I am inclined to believe they are.

  Karl Rove, John Boehner, and the rest of the establishment Republicans have taken their base for granted because they feel the conservatives have nowhere else to go and will vote for them no matter what. And they might be right in the long run but as of right now the conservatives are speaking with their wallets and the only question is; will the establishment listen? I am inclined to believe they will not…

  If the Democrats do indeed manage to hold onto the Senate people like Karl Rove should look in the mirror for there they will find the reason for the loss.

    It’s because of people like Rove that many people do not trust the Republican Party.

      Yes, he is one of the reasons I do not trust the Republican party. He is interested in protecting the establishment because he is part of the establishment and that is all he cares about.

      When push comes to shove the establishment will protect each other and that is what we are seeing here.
