I was listening to Hannity’s radio show on the way home and heard Karl Rove accuse Steve King of, just yesterday, refusing to disavow Todd Akin’s remarks on legitimate/illegitimate rape. He said that’s one of the reasons he thinks King will be a bad candidate for Senate in Iowa.

UPDATE: Here’s the audio and partial transcript of Karl Rove from from Hannity’s radio show:

ROVE: Now look, I must admit my personal view is he’s not a particularly strong candidate. He ran behind Mitt Romney in the most Republican district in Iowa. That just is unimaginable for a sitting Congressman who’s supposedly been able to build a lot of bridges across the line.

And I do, I personally do think he’s got some problems.

Yesterday he said he would not disavow Todd Akin’s comment that a woman’s body has the ability to distinguish between a legitimate and an illegitimate rape – whatever that means.

HANNITY: Steve King said that?

ROVE: Steve King said that YESTERDAY. YESTERDAY.

And look, he’s a strong member. But first of all there’s a sign of weakness here. When you’re a sitting Republican member of Congress and you’re running behind Mitt Romney as he’s losing the country by 3 points and by losing your state by whatever it was, 6 or 7 or 8, that ain’t a good sign for your future candidacy.

And second of all, when you refuse to distance yourself from a comment a lot of people in Iowa, especially women, are going to find obnoxious, it makes me worried.

But that’s not what happened at all. Here’s The Hill’s report on it:

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Wednesday he considers former Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) a “friend” and told a radio interviewer he would not disavow the former GOP Senate candidate over his controversial comments on “legitimate rape” and abortion.

King, who is considering a Senate run in Iowa, neither embraced nor disagreed with Akin’s comments while speaking on the nationally syndicated Andrea Tantaros show.

“Well, I had never heard of that theory before it was uttered in Missouri. I have not seen anything come out since that, so I know nothing about that theory,” King said when Tantaros pressed him on whether he agreed with Akin’s comments.

“What I have said is that I’ve served here in Congress with Todd Akin. He was a friend going in, he’ll be a friend coming out. But what happened in Missouri isn’t relevant to what goes on here in Iowa.”

Steve King won’t disavow the man, Todd Akin, because he considers him a friend. He said he knows nothing about that ‘theory’ that Akin spouted and obviously didn’t support it. But as far as the man he’s served with, he considers him a friend and won’t let the media force him to do something he knows isn’t right.

But instead of reporting it accurately, Rove basically smears him. If Rove is as good as people tell him he is, perhaps he’d bother to get the details correct because there’s a world of difference between disavowing a friend and disavowing something that friend said.

But I have another question. What the heck is Andrea Tantaros even asking Steve King about this for in the first place? Is she trying to create division? C’mon Andrea, stop acting like a Lefty and focus on issues of substance.

One last beef with Karl. I’ve heard in interview after interview Karl lump Richard Mourdock in with Akin, saying Mourdock said God intended rape. Again, that’s not what he said Karl and if you care about integrity at all, you’ll stop smearing him too. He said God intends life, not rape. Do your dang research.

UPDATE: It looks like Mark Levin agrees with me:

Karl Rove flat out lied about Rep. Steve King

He told Sean Hannity moments ago that King endorse Todd Akin’s rape comment in Missouri. Here is the article to which Rove is referring:

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/senate-races/281459-rep-steve-king-says-he-stands-by-todd-akin

King specifically did NOT endorse the comment. He said he would remain friends with Akin as they were friends when he served in the House. This is the kind of sleaziness conservatives are fed up with. And Rove went on national radio and smeared King with this lie.

  • marketcomp

    Karl Rove is a snake and evil. He just flat out lied on Hannity’s show about Steve King. Unlike Rove, Rep. King does not throw his friends under the bus. Rove is an a$$! Sean Hannity needs to see this article so he can stop giving this lying SOB a forum to spread his lies!

    • LibLoather

      Right on. Each day I have to think twice about listening to Hannity radio, he’s becoming clueless…

      • marketcomp

        Except when he comes to bashing Todd Akin! Sean hannity loves to bash Todd Akin as if Akin ran for President and lost. I just happen to tune in today and when I heard that snake Rove I regretted listening. I use to listen to Sean also but his repeating just bores me to death. So I can only listen occasionally.

        • 57thunderbird

          Never cared much for Hannity.I can’t explain it.There is just something about the guy that bugs me.Maybe the way he presents himself?He seems kind of snobby I guess.

          • marketcomp

            I think he just repeats everything for his audience. I mean I can listen to his show a month later and he’s still saying the same thing. I still watch the television show except when Karl Rove and Ann Coulter is on. I am sick of of both on them!

            • 57thunderbird

              He is definitely redundant.I do not care for Coulter any more than I care for Rove.Coulter is just another progressive republican.

              • marketcomp

                You are so right. I bought her demonic book before she started trashing Sarah Palin and Rick Santorum. But I was really surprised at how she was totally in the tank for Romney and Christie so I decided then I would never ever buy another book that she wrote.

                • 57thunderbird

                  Yep.That is what brought me to the conclusion that she was a progressive.Her support for Christie especially.But I guess that is all you can expect from a New York City republican.

              • Dick Parker

                Rove I never liked. He always set off my “devious” alarm. As for Coulter….she lost me dissing Sarah Palin on Greta’s hour with Greta right there, participating. Can someone explain to me why Fox, a supposedly “conservative” opinion network, keeps hiring and presenting anti-conservative personalities to showcase. If they had given Mark Levin just a one hour slot, for example, I’d still have cable television. Happilly, I can get Levin’s audio, and dozens of other decent conservative blogs on the internet, which I do believe is the only thing standing as a possible barrier between the free world and the heathen hordes pressing on our border. Forewarned is forearmed! The time is very near wnen we’ll have to make a choice and take a stand…….together, or lose our heritage forever. And please, don’t think it can’t happen here. It started in earnest with Wilson’s, “The League of Nations” through FDR’s 4 terms. After which we lost 5 decades culturally distracted, complacent and too fat to notice. May I suggest The Harbinger”, written by Jonathon Cahn. You’ll find it, among other things, an interesting history of the beginnings of our country.

      • HSmith

        Hannity is another one I can’t stand. He panders to these Rinos every day. I’ve tried to listen to his radio show, but shut it off after a few minutes. Likewise his show on Fox. I can take it for about 10 minutes max.

      • StrangernFiction

        But nobody can state the obvious and act like it’s cutting edge commentary like Hannity. He’s a real fighter for conservatism. He speaks truth to power like Paul Bunyan wielding an axe. We are blessed to have him.

      • Medaton

        Steve Malzberg is on NewsMax TV (LIVE) at the same time as Hannity’s show. Steve is great and you know where he stands!!

      • B-Funk

        I have to contend that he’s always been clueless. He’s got the Republican blinders on, so he doesn’t see what Beck, Rush, and Levin see has happened to the GOP. They’re goners because of people like Rove. Ah well. I haven’t listened to Hannity in years anyhow, so I’m really only guessing that he’s still a GOP bulldog, but it sounds like it.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/KYTC7EGQASGOTQYPY2KPC4XCZY Don

      What the RINOs couldn’t seem to comprehend was without the Conservatives/Tea Party they are the third party. Rove helps form a coalition of RINOs with the goal to suppress the Tea Party in areas of their choosing. Then comes the rude awakening, the RINOs immedately find their base is so small they have become irrelevant. They do what cowardly bullies do, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” Too late Lil Karl for anymore RINO arrogance and misguided cowering to those who would forfeit our country to those who would transform us into what we refuse to accept. The freedom bus has left the station and the RINOs are now on the backseat.

    I have had it with ALL the “talking heads” – Rove – Tantaros -and all the rest

    They are all self absorbed and narcissistic

    They just want to keep their job – pure and simple

    Rove LIED – Not Surprised at all!

    He is a “journalist/commentator” – lower than dog crap – no offense to dogs!

    • marketcomp

      But when he has a forum to spread his lies is just evil.

      • http://twitter.com/pbolyard Paula Bolyard

        Bill O’Reilly gave Rove a 10 minute infomercial slot on his show yesterday. O’Reilly basically began the show by agreeing with a premise that Rove wasn’t trying to protect incumbents at the expense of tea party candidates.

        I don’t recall anyone complaining that Rove is trying to protect incumbents. His vendetta against King proves that. The problem with Rove’s “Conservative Victory Sham” is that he wants to take out conservatives in primaries, incumbent or not. His little white board showing that Crossroads supported tea party candidates is a joke because he fails to show the damage he’s done over the years to conservative candidates at the primary level.

        • marketcomp

          Before I heard Rove on Hannity I was disgusted with him. But now I detest him for trying to destroy Steve King. He just flat out lied on the man in addition all the other vial and detestable acts.

      Pretty soon…… , No I dare to say he is irrelevant now, I dare to say that any candidate running and says my opponent has the support of Rove, He will be guaranteed a win, and I also read that the donors are running away from him.

  • clockwindingdown

    Rove is using leftist tactics, of perpetuating falsehoods to a desired outcome, that of damaging those on the right. The fact he is trying so hard shows he is in an uphill struggle. It also shows he wants to be in charge and believes he knows what is best, regardless of the fruition of his decisions thus far.

    Rove’s centrist ideas have lost election after election, which proves no one wants it. It only shows that he wants to be in charge, it isn’t about ideas, it is about power, and power only. Rove can then divert the peoples money through taxation to his pals and himself through contracts, just like the current regime, there really is no difference!

    If we were to list Roves actions and statements compared to a typical leftist without names attached to either side I doubt most people could tell the difference. This should give a clear indication of what and whom Rove really is.

    • aposematic

      Rove thinks that because lies work for the D’s to get what the D’s want, lies should work for the R’s to get what Rove wants. Hello Rove, R’s aren’t brainless gullible fools like the D’s. Try again…

Why don’t you admit that you are a big government type, you have NOT supported someone who CUTS spending, not lowers the amount of GROWTH in spending. You along with LINCOLN believe in a strong FEDERAL government, admit it, so others like myself will know where you stand.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steven-Valdez/1806887704 Steven Valdez

      The only thing he’s dividing is conservatives from the GOP moderates establishment class, the vast majority of conservatives have come together and agree that Rove is piece of crap and useless. Rush said Obama wanted to destroy the GOP, Rove is helping.

  • aposematic

    My first thoughts were. Why do these R’s go on these Talk/Radio shows knowing they will be raked over the coals. Then I see it was Tantaros, and I’m thinking what the heck is she doing. As for Rove, Rove is just doing what Rove does; lie like the D’s to discredit R’s he doesn’t like. Rove is scum. A note to you big crony capitalists giving Rove your money: You must really like flushing your money down the toilet to bet on Rove’s losers. If you want winners, donate to real Conservative groups and candidates.

Sean Hannity is not Conservative. A Conservative would open his eyes and see what is going on around them and not bend their morals and ideals to be eaten by a shark or taken in by one.

    I agree with all of you. When He has Ann or Karl on I shut him off. To tell you the truth I have shut off listening to him on the Radio and it has been refreshing to break free from that, and There are some great Do it Yourself tv shows on when his program is on tv.

  • clockwindingdown

    Rove is dissing Romney… Saying how bad someone is doing by polling behind Romney…, wow Rove is amazing!

  • HSmith

    Karl Rove is a backstabbing snake. Always has been, always will be. Steve King has been a thorn in the side of Rinos/Libs for years. Rove is trying to prevent Steve from being nominated and elected as senator from Iowa to replace the execrable Tom Harkin. When I lived in Iowa I always wondered why Iowans would keep re-electing a piece of crap like that…but then I remember the story “Music Man” which took place in a fictional town in Iowa. The townspeople get hoodwinked by a con man and end up forgiving him in the end. Typical for my home state.

  • JohnCraven

    After the 2010 TEA Party landslide which took back the House of Representatives for the Big Whigs in the GOP, such as Karl Rove, since they were clearly incapable of doing it with the candidates they supported, many of us in the TEA Party Movement were dismayed to see so many “good” conservative candidates quickly become co-opted by the ruling elites in the GOP in Congress. They were either co-opted to vote as the Big Whigs wanted them to or they were marginalized and/or ostracized – can we say Huelscamp or Bachmann – and in some cases defeated in the next election entirely.

    Many of us were left to scratch our heads as to how this could happen so quickly.

    Well thanks to Karl Rove’s conversation with Hannity today we now know how it happened.

    I listened to his remarks, implying that Aiken was Harry Reid’s candidate and that the candidate that Sarah Palin backed and the one that most of the TEA Party in Missouri backed were undermined by Harry Reid’s machinations which described Aiken as the most conservative candidate in Missouri much akin to Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos in support of Hillary Clinton over Obama.

    But then Rove went on to say that in the primaries in Missouri and elsewhere where TEA Party candidates or candidates who were eventually supported by the TEA Party won the primaries, that in the general election it was basically only financial kindness of Karl Rove and his SuperPac which kept these TEA Party candidates going through the General Election and that their original supporters were no where to be found. For instance, Karl Rove’s SuperPac contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to Sharron Angle and even to Todd Aiken until he made his stupid remarks and to many other TEA Party candidates such as Marco Rubio when the candidates they originally supported lost in the GOP primaries. These candidates original financial backers were probably tapped out by the time the general election came around and so these TEA Party candidates had no choice but to turn to the kindness of strangers such as Karl Rove.

    Well, he who pays the piper calls the tune.

    When many TEA Party candidates got elected in 2010 with the financial backing of Karl Rove and other Big Whigs from deep inside the beltway, they became obligated to Karl Rove and the Big Whigs who put them over the top in the general election. And that’s how we saw so many good TEA Party candidates turn to mush once they got to Washington and how we also saw those who didn’t turn to mush get ostracized by the Big Whigs in the GOP.

    I don’t know about Steve King. I do know what Todd Aiken said was dumb AND more importantly without any basis in biological fact. But Steve King is correct in not dumping on someone he considers to be a friend and Andrea Tantaros should know that.

    Lately we social conservatives in the TEA Party Movement have been assaulted by the likes of Anne Coulter on the issue of exceptions for rape and incest – namely that according to Anne Coulter we must accept such exceptions. I think she speaks on behalf of the Karl Rove’s and the Big Whigs who support Kris “Krispy Creme” Christi for president in 2016 and who don’t support Rand Paul or anyone like him.

    Just yesterday, we witnessed at the National Prayer Breakfast one of the most profound refudiations of the Anne Coulter position on exceptions for rape and incest when Dr. Ben Carson spoke out on behalf of so much that we in the TEA Party Movement support and did so fearlessly in Nero Ceasar Obama’s face. He could have easily been one of those countless numbers of aborted children given the circumstances of his birth but he wasn’t. Thank God. And no thanks to the likes of Anne Coulter.

    Karl Rove, through such pundits as Anne Coulter and his bottomless money bags want to control the Primary process in the 2014 just so they don’t have to do it in the general election. He and the Big Whigs want to “vette” our candidates better.

    The truth is they want “Yes Men and Yes Women” that they can co-opt and control once they get to Congress.

    This is why I genuinely believe we need an alternative conservative party to truly challenge the Big Whigs in the GOP – one based on our founding principles as so well spoken of by Dr. Ben Carson at the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday and so well presented by Ronald Reagan while he lived.

    Else we will continue to see our TEA Party candidates marginalized and ostracized and co-opted in the next election and beyond.

    Also, Steven Law who heads Rove’s Conservative Victory Project state that Rep Steve King of Iowa likened immigrants to dogs – another total distortion/lie. Rove uses the same Alinsky tactics of Obama and propaganda strategy of the Nazi’s, Communists and other malevolent regimes.

  • http://twitter.com/workathomer WorkAtHomer

    How can we ever believe anything Rove says? He obviously lies, distorts and smears other people to achieve his agenda. The actual facts regarding what Rep. Steve King said about Todd Akin and about immigrants is easily accessible in less than a minute via internet searches. Rove and Steven Law are provably lying.

    I just wrote this over at Stacy McCain’s place:

    Jeffrey Lord is all over Rove and his #WarOnTheTeaParty. He’s coined a new term, and it’s gonna stick like “gate” has stuck on every stinking scandal since Nixon: Cotton Conservatives.

    Way to be, Jeffrey Lord. Come on bloggers, jump on this one.

    Mr. Lord has writeen a few articles about this, but I really like that term, Cotton Conservatives.

  • Tim

    Wow, what Rove is doing to King is EVIL. He needs to shut his mouth and go far away.
    Reject Bushism and Rovism, it’s the only way conservatives will ever get a REAL majority.

  • repubboy

    Karl Rove is a spinner of tales a purveyor of what he wants it be , he’s a BS artist like Obama but on a smaller scale.. But still a BS artist, that is what We don’t need nor do We want.
    So Mr. Rove with all due respect Please GO AWAY !

    Why are we still listening to this loser? He is a Bush butt kisser and has helped destroy the Republican Party, which I am no longer affiliated. NO MORE BUSHES! I will stay home before I ever vote for Jeb or any other Bush.

    Indeed Carl Rove is a master at propagating deceitful misinformation. I am so happy that Mark Levin has exposed his lies with the facts. No one does it better. Thank God for Dr. Levin’s amazing abilities. And let us not forget it is Boehner and McConnell that are the masterminds pulling Rove (the marionette) strings in the cloak of the shadows. Boehner and McConnell are the old puppeteers and despise the tea party.

  • freeperjim

    Tokyo Rove keeps digging the hole deeper and exposing his RINO credentials for all to see…and reject!

  • SKL53

    Rove is a snake! He is AFRAID of the Tea Party because of his need to keep the ESTABLISHMENT RINOS just like himself in office. He is just as BAD as Obama, controlling elections! Trump is absolutely correct…what a LOSER!!! Hopefully the new Superpac to discredit Rove will take out this phoney!

  • Flunking_retirement

    That is one of , if not thee, main problems right now with Republicans, the minute they succumb to this pc crap, they have compromised. They have taken the first step down the slippery slope to RINO hood.

    I don’t have to disavow a damned thing somebody else says, that’s on them.

    And another thing, Why do republicans have this notion, that they need to “communicate”? What in hell is that all about ? To whom? A hostile press?

    Did Ike set down for in interview with Ribbentrop ? MacArthur or Nimitz talk to Tokyo Rose?

    The only communication they need to do right now is with a fist! And yes, I think it is that serious, were talking about the survival of freedom.

  • 12grace

    What happened to the supposedly Conservative, Karl Rove ? He is talking dirt about patriot Steve King? Why? What is Rove’s real agenda? Does the left have something on Rove and now they are pulling his strings?

    • PVG

      I think Rove is becoming more desperate as he sees his power and influence erode away.

  • davienne

    karl rove lied about working for Reagan too….

  • bornfreeamerican

    Rove needs to go!

  • bornfreeamerican

    Mark Levin…our shining beacon!

    • PVG

      And Scoop!

  • fed-up

    I’m not sure what Karl Rove’s end game is but it sure doesn’t seem like he is trying to bring Republicans together as much as he is tryong to divide them.

      I was thinking that myself. Obama could have no better helper.

  • NJK

    Steve King is a wonderful man and representative. Karl Rove, John Boehner, and Mitch McConnell are going to cost the GOP the Senate and House. This man just can’t give it up. He thinks he owns the govt. You are a loser, Rove. Mark played the clip last night, he said what most good people would have.

  • Nightsights

    Fox News never should have resigned Karl Rove he has never been a conservative no matter what he named his PAC. It’s time for the left wing republicans, like Rove to admit that every time they back a so called moderate politition {liberal} and tell us they have the best chance of winning, we loose. { Romney, Dole etc.} Rove and others in the establishment crowd have run rough shot over the Republican Party for years. That’s why The Tea Party movement got started. If Rove is allowed to continue his assalt on real conservitives the party will wind up devided and out of power.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

    Listen to this audio again. Rove wants to be a puppet master and not take any slings or arrows and most especially no responsibility.

  • blueniner

    Karl Rove is a lier and got caught in a web. It was Karl Rove behind the scenes that was trying to sabatage Sarah Palin from running in 2012. Rove pulled all kinds of shennigans.
    FOX should fire is azz, many people I know are tuning FOX out, and their ratings are starting to take a hit.

    • JohnMartin Mull

      It’s “liar” niner. Sarah Palin “sabOtaged” herself more than anyone else could ever accomplish. Even roger Ailes tired of her narcissistic ramblings after her “blood libel” rant. By then it was over for her as a politician but she could have clung on to her bi-monthly appearances on fox news but she didn’t listen to Roger when he said “don’t do it” in regards to the Gabrielle Giffords shooting. Now she is persona non grata even at her last holdout-fox news. I have sources who tell me she is in negotiations with “Dancing With The Stars” and that will surely be the last nail in what is already a very tightly sealed coffin of her “political” career.

      • blueniner

        Hey, John Wesley Harding you are full of so much shizz a colonic won’t even help you. I am glad you are an FOX Ailes insider. Just keep dreaming on of her demise!

        • JohnMartin Mull

          That dream is now a reality. Sarah Palin burned every bridge she ever crossed and that’s why Hillary Clinton would beat her in Alaska. She has one more gig left in her and that is following Bristol’s hoofprints on DWTS. Whatever happened to the “fitness” book? Did she quit that too? Like she quit on the people of Alaska, her Bus to Nowhere tour and the AGOCC?

          • HarrietHT2

            The Rovarian strikes again and while he’s at it he hijacks the thread. Nice going there, bub.

  • DizzyMissL

    RightScoop said:

    “Steve King won’t disavow the man, Todd Akin, because he considers him a friend. He said he knows nothing about that ‘theory’ that Akin spouted and obviously didn’t support it. ”

    I don’t see anywhere in King’s comment’s that you posted that he does not support what Akin said. If I missed it, please point it out to me.

    We better be honest about this stuff folks, or we will be screwed again and again.

    • JohnMartin Mull

      So, Steve King does not know whether the female body does or does not shut down if it’s a “legitimate rape” yet you feel he should be a Senator? Have you seen the polling of King vs the most likely democrat? He is a Christine O’Donnell/Sharron Angle candidate at the State Level. As George W Bush once said just before a major ass-kicking-“bring’em on.”

      • HarrietHT2

        Shilling for Rove? are we, JMM? Your problem with King has nothing to do with Todd Akin’s inept comment but everything to do with the fact that he is not a Rovite. You people are so obvious!

      • DizzyMissL

        I am sick of RINOs.

        From this point forward, I, and everyone I know, will vote for the opposite of the person who Rove supports.

  • hosepipe

    Rove is out of the closet… he’s a skunk…
    Kind of cute but feeds on mice.. and stinks..

  • JohnMartin Mull

    Smearing Steve “nothing wrong with dog fighting” King is like smearing feces.

  • Grumpa37

    Sometimes vigilance and persistence pay off. I think Rove has pulled in essentially all he will get for his cause. If so, he’ll grab as much as he can and drag it back under his rock.

    Hannity will work this into an on-air Levin vs. Rove live slugfest–that is, if he has ANY brains, and that’s looking doubtful.
