Karl Rove is Right

WNCNN crack reporters got this exclusive footage of Karl Rove's appearance before 11th District Republicans Saturday in Henderson County. Click and listen to him explain how Republicans can take back Congress and return to the White House in 2008.

It's entirely possible for you to shape the outcome of this contest by what you do in the months between now and 2008.

Guess what, folks. He's right.

I guess I'll have to.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

I'll wait and watch in the morning.

I don't want to have nightmares about the Rovemonster.

I watched it and now I've got to take a bath

just watching that makes me feel dirty. How in the world did you refrain from screaming that the only reason he got the winning votes was because the Republics denied many voters their Constitutional right to vote or just got rid of their vote?

Isn't it amazing how much Stormbear's depiction of bush's brain favors him?

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Momo, it was very very weird

It was really really hard not to shout out replies to his stupid statements. But I was already pushing my luck with the secret service rules . . . and I was there to take video of what he might say and do, not comment on it. But it was weird to be the "media" and not a citizen . . . I felt a little slimy knowing the protest was a half mile away and never got anywhere near this dude.

It was also weird to think that he never appeared with any republican candidates. Nice guest, eh? One you don't want to be seen with.

Rove is living a pipe dream...

All the Democrats have to do is place a portable LCD sign around their necks with the national debt numbers escalating in front of the public's eyes.

That alone should stop anyone cold from continuing to support the Republicans.

I agree it is very hard to watch a man who helped to orchestrate the death and destruction of tens of thousands of people, including our beautiful men and women in uniform.

Love

That's what I thought. Convenient memory he has, eh?

I edited out the part where he was saying how much Democrats outspent Repupblicans in 2006 . . . Whatever.

But, you know he's right about our ability to affect the next election. He just didn't know I was going to use it to inspire Democrats to do the same!

He is scary because he's right.

The grassroots tactics that he's talking about are what works - and it's what's going to put a Democrat in the White House in 2008. It's what's going to give NC a Democratic Senator in 2008. It's what we have to do.

I got to see some NC Republican strategy before the 2000

election and let me tell you, I was impressed. I will tell this first hand account in full someday soon when I have time to craft it, but it was a well oiled machine, I have little doubt, built by Rovebots.

They certainly plan to take back the 11th

for themselves. There's no doubt they've got plans and schemes and it's not rocket science, either. It's grassroots, door-to-door canvassing and phone banking and then a massive GOTV effort for early voting and election day. We've got to work harder because they already have existing phone trees at the churches.

That's my point, lcloud

He motivates these people by brining up 9/11 (wanna talk about icky!) or mentioning same sex marriage, and then he tells them what they need to do and then they do it.

We need to do the same (not bring up 9/11 or demonize gays) but do what he says about talking to the swing voters. And listening, too.

And to Me - That's Really Disgusting

We've got to work harder because they already have existing phone trees at the churches.

I hate how the church - any church - allows itself to be manipulated by these slimy (-R)s.

They mouth the 'magic buzzwords' and all of a sudden congregations are falling at their feet. I call BS.

Actions speak louder than words. Jesus says, 'Wherefore, by their fruits ye shall know them.' Mt. 7:20

Death, greed, corruption, and lies, lack of charity, hardened hearts, I could go on and on.

Wake up! You are being used. Spend some time in the New Testament; the New Testament fulfills the law of the Old Testament.

Anyone can 'talk the talk'; it takes maturity and grace to 'walk the walk'.

I'd really like to see the tax status

of any church that allows itself to be used as anyone's politcal tool taken away for good.

Even if the faithfull flock can't see it, separation of church and state is a cornerstone of this country.

Where does that kind of accountability start? Who do I call to get that ball rolling? any ideas?

I've never heard what happened

at the East Waynesville Baptist church that excommunicated members who voted for Kerry and other Democrats . . .

um

How would they know who voted for whom? Isn't that supposed to be private and all?

Here in Moore County

the Republics are imploding....apparently the Pinewild group that joined to beat Morgan and get the hairdresser elected are mad as hell. The faction within the party, led by Kelly, (who is owner (?)/leader of a dayschool, called Calvary Christian) tried to get their people elected for the top seats and delegate positions for the County have been threatened by the current party head with the IRS. Our old friends, Redmond and Kennedy, (who it seems take turns writing pretty nasty lte's in the Pilot) have taken a break from defending the hairdresser and have jumped on the destroy the party band wagon. It's really quite a show!

Yes, pretty darn funny.

Every body has god on their side. What a fickle god that must be!
