Something strange is going on within the GOP. First, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich calls Rep. Paul Ryanâ€™s pittance of a budget cut â€œright-wing social engineering.â€ Then Karl Rove appears on Fox and Friends, dismissing conservative presidential candidate Herman Cain as simply a â€œtalk radio guy in Atlanta,â€ a â€œformer head of a national pizza chain.â€ Rove then warns fellow Republicans that itâ€™s â€œnot just your narrative on Obama. Itâ€™s not just your own personal narrativeâ€ that wins the presidency.
Last March, the Associated Press reported that Rove established two political action committees to raise $120 million â€œahead of the 2012 elections to help make President Barrack Obama a one-term leader and elect Republicans.â€
The obvious question â€“ one the mainstream media refuses to ask â€“ is: â€œExactly what kind of Republicans does Karl Rove expect to elect?â€
I donâ€™t think the GOPâ€™s establishmentarians are nearly as worried about President Obamaâ€™s re-election as the media would have us believe. As Gingrich and Rove have clearly indicated, their enemy is Tea Party activists and the candidates they hope will end the careers of me-too, big-government Republican incumbents.
