This is short but sweet. Levin slaps Rove after seeing him on Fox News trashing Richard Mourdock again, putting Hannity on the spot:

    Rove is a “has been”

    His type of thinking is what is wrong with the GOP

    He clearly has no clue !

    • c4pfan

      That’s a fact.

    • clockwindingdown

      Rove is no doubt behind the failures of the GOP, he has an agenda and it is not conservative!

      I hope his masters pat him on the head and give him a biscuit for the little tricks he does!

        Mitt Romney’s advisers are not looking to a 2012 paycheck, but are looking toward their 2016 paycheck

        Michael Reagan

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      There is no proof to say otherwise.

  • sDee

    I assume it is Richard Mourdock?

  • c4pfan

    I’m glad Mark Levin doesn’t take the bs.

    • sDee

      I wish he’d been that blunt with Rubio the other day on Amnesty,

      • c4pfan

        I think as long as the person isn’t sitting there trashing conservatives, then he will treat them respect.

    FINALLY, He supported Scazafava in NY23 over the conservative, when she knew she could not win she dropped out and endorsed the Democrat, who was more conservative than she.

    • bornfreeamerican

      Rove is like Obama…thinks he can pick winners and losers!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_H4ZPAKODDKFYKPYCT35J5O3TIU breakn70

    Thank God for Mark Levin! More guts in his fillings than … never mind. Hannity’s love affair with Rove exposes him as an establishment type no matter what he says. I detest Rove and all that he stands for. To me, he is our political enemy. I will not listen to Hannity anymore for this reason. I don’t watch television so I’ve never seen his tv show.

  • sDee

    I am glad Levin pressed Hannity. Fox News is as much a part of the malfeasant
    media as the rest of the propagandists. The sin of omission….

    • james1051

      Agreed. FNC is part of the problem. They need competition in the worst way.

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

      Rove is a semi-illiterate RINO who cannot comprehend the republicans are now the third party. He is a prime example why Romney lost. Conservatives are not going to vote for RINOs ever again. They will never win another national election. The RINOs’ arrogant ignorance has destroyed the GOP.

    • bornfreeamerican

      Yes, they enable them.

  • marketcomp

    Sean, Mark is asking you because you are all up in Rove’s grill every Tuesday which I do not watch on that day. So you should ask him why he’s trashing anyone in the Republican Party and not those archaic and backward thinking democrats. Lord knows he’s got plenty to choose from there starting with Obama.

  • 57thunderbird

    Rove is an establishment repub.Nuff said.

  • aposematic

    Personally, can’t stand any of that Bush family crowd of RINOs.

    • 57thunderbird

      Here,here.

  • BearNJ

    Too bad RS didn’t let the clip run. Mark correctly said that he could show where mush Rino moderates lost 10-15 races. The conservative base/T party base that has produced Latino (Cruz, Rubio), Indian (Haley, Jindal) and African american ( Scott, West) in the South over establishment GOP white RINO candidates. According to the GOP establishment we’re the ones that need to reach out. What a joke.

  • Constance

    I suspect that Karl Rove, being a super-duper Fox News contributor, is somebody that Hannity can’t trash publicly. Sean is employed by Fox News, so I’m sure he has to call Karl Rove his “friend”, just like he has to have Rove on his show on a regular basis. Just a guess on my part, but I never hear anybody on Fox News ever say anything negative about the contributors on that network. Maybe it’s happened, but I’ve never heard it. Probably a company rule.

    • sDee

      ” but I never hear anybody on Fox News ever say anything negative about the contributors on that network. ”

      Beck and O’Reilly came as close as any.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZVCGRG62NAGQXJ6ZNE4JCTVVTU Ray

      This could be true, but Hannity is doing a GREAT JOB in showing the collusion of big business with big politics. The misnamed “Free Market Principles” has been a disaster for the consumer, in that it is allowing large corporations to buy up mid-sized corporations so as to restrict competition, thus raising prices, with less innovation. Then on top of that , allowing corporations to fund campaigns to get their voices heard over the constituents who actually voted them into office, in order to have laws passed that benefit the corporations over the constituents, and have laws passed that benefit those corporations over their competition so as to make it difficult for the competition to actually compete. This happened in the late 70’s when big oil got state governments to write laws so gas prices cannot vary but a few cents in small geographical areas, under the guise of “keeping supplies stable”. There were independents who refined their own crude and sold gasoline for up to 30% less than the big oil companies. I could go into Bell Telephone and how prices plummeted and innovation and service increased exponentially after it was broken up by court order, but suffice it to say, corporations may be able to fund elections, however they do not vote, it is the constituents that do that, and when we vote for someone, we expect them to represent us in OUR best interests, not multinational interests.

    • c4pfan

      Wrong! They did it to Sarah all the time!

    • RefudiateGOPe

      You must not have watched Fox much then. Palin was trashed on a regular basis by O’Reilly, by Rivera, by Rove, by Shemp Smith, by Krauthammer, by Beckel, by Juan Williams, and even sometimes by Cavuto, who happens to also be a VP of FNC.

  • tsturbo

    KR, you are the poster child for everything that is wrong with the RNC.
    Call your voter registration office tomorrow, go independent and wait for the Constitutional Party.

  • John_Frank

    RS, thanks for posting this audio of Mr. Levin taking Rove to task.

    Rove (Bush), Krauthammer (ex-Democrat), Scarborough (Bush), and Rice (Bush) are enablers of big government Republicans. Powell (Bush) is a quisling;

    They all exemplify what is wrong with the Republican party.

    • misterlogic0013

      Tea Party / Sarah exposed them .. cat out of bag .. never be the same .. Rove done, fork time ..

  • james1051

    Rove is contemptible. But hopefully he will remain the face of the GOP, until that bunch is dead and buried.

  • hosepipe

    Rove gave us Bush which gave us Obama.. Rove is a malefactor in deep cover..
    like.. Hume and O’Reilly.. and for sure Krystal.. and maybe Ingraham..

    I am really enjoying the Next Generation thing that Allen West is a part of. They are giving a free preview. I really think people here should show support and at least give the free trial a try!

    How much did Rove spend on the election? 300 million? Not a single result except for maybe Fisher i think her name is… in Nebraska.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PABYG3G2BL4UBESR5MSKXZQ5MU Kay

      Sorry John, but Rove DID NOT endorse Deb Fischer! Sarah Palin did. I know I’m from Nebraska. And remember Rove said “Sarah’s endorsements aren’t worth snot” Rove didn’t have even ONE result…..

      John – I did not mean to “like” your comment. I hit that button instead of “reply”

  • Jean_A

    Rove is trying to blame everybody else on why he only got a 1% return on the 100+ million he blew during the election.

    • JohnMartin Mull

      ok.

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        Way to introduce yourself on an open forum. Proud of yourself are you?
        If rove is the face and future of the republican party, no wonder people are leaving in droves.

        • JohnMartin Mull

          Agreed. He is a vile man but he has the connections to money and in a party with no relevant ideas, money is all there is.

          • misterlogic0013

            sad but true / and those with that kind of mula don’t care, its a game to them, they seek to destroy then laugh about it. Zero moral compass, they lay low, hide, then spend $ trash and lie again and again .. Sarah Palin exposed them without saying a word, with kindness. No stopping her .. 2014 character on display, money can’t buy. Sarah Palin will be standing when the smoke clears, she always is ..

      • TaimeAgair

        Actually, Palin and the rest of us with any sense are ditching the GOP, not the other way around.

      • PVG

        This is TRS…..not media matters. Scram!

  • JohnMartin Mull

    Down goes Hannity.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    Karl Rove: how’s that establishment GOP working out for ya?

  • RefudiateGOPe

    Hannity just showed why he’s not even in the same league as Levin. Mark brings up Mourdock and Hannity tries to misdirect and brings up Akin. If one of Hannity’s lefty guests tries that crap, he nails him/her on it.

    Face it. Hannity lies to his viewers/listeners every day when he claims he’s a Conservative first and a Republican second. Hannity is nothing but a talking head who knows that his success is dependent upon Roger Ailes. He knows that if he takes on Rove, he’s in essence taking on Ailes. We saw how Palin was treated after she fought back when Rove trashed her. Hannity knows he has a gravy train and he’s not going to tip the bowl over.

    I watched the Boomtown special when it was rerun on Sunday night and that’s the first time that I purposely turned the channel to Hannity’s show in almost a year. Thankfully TRS gave us all the Palin appearances here so we wouldn’t have to watch them on FNC.

    • bongobear

      I think you nailed Hannity’s motives and I believe the same thing about Rove. Rove’s a self-promoter first and foremost. Nothing wrong with that…except when you’re screwing with the country’s future.

  • hihoze

    If Jeb Bush wants to be president, he can run against HRC in the Democratic National Socialist Workers Party primary. The Bush’s destroyed Reagan and gave us Clinton and Marx.

  • bornfreeamerican

    I couldn’t believe that Fox put him back on the air! After his utter failure of his bringing when he wouldn’t support Murdock and Akin I blame Rove for making us lose the Senate!! He is an arrogant jerk! Same goes for Juan Williams and Bob Beckel.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michelle-Houghtaling/100000090003947 Michelle Houghtaling

    I’m sorry, but that wasn’t Rove he was talking TO, it was Rove he was talking ABOUT. Ream his a__ directly, then I’ll care.

    • las1

      No… but he was talking to the next-best-thing, Hannity.

      Although I agree, Rove would not have the stomach to come on Levin’s show… In fact I’m not sure he’s ever been on Levin’s show, ever. Afterall, Levin’s “get the hell off the stage” quip and rubbing Rove’s nose in it will forever scare Rove off from having to answer for himself in front of Levin.

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    Well, deal with it, Mark. I get this funny feeling that the only Republicans that are going to win in the future are the “compassionate conservative” types like George W. Bush, RINOs that just spend a little less than liberals. As for a real conservative ever winning the White House again, dream on. It will only happen if there is a major economic collapse, like during the Carter administration. Then, maybe, people will be willing to listen to conservatives again. Maybe. People love getting their “free stuff,” especially the low information voters out there. Hard to beat endless gifts of money with logic.

  • http://twitter.com/PeterLeaman1 Pete – TYF

    Rove is a “has been”, I agree. However, Murdock was stupid and made a mistake. He should be ripped on. From a younger, and very very conservative, person’s persepctive, we need to stop saying stupid stuff in the media. The media is out to get us, so we need to be careful in what we say. Murdock made a really stupid statement and lost because of it. He

    • PhillyCon

      I agree that they did say something stupid which was a gift to the Leftist media. (I was hoping that Akin would have dropped out) However, its time to move on and stop talking about it. Does the Left harp on the dumb things Pelosi and Biden say?

      I have never heard of a strategy where you continually weakened your own side, and air them out in public.

      BTW, the Left say stupid things all the time. I don’t need to recount or list them here. It’s a double standard … so don’t get sucked into the hype. It’s all staged and phony and losers like Rove are played like a fiddle. From an “older” conservative to a younger one …. well not that old, Gen X. :)

      • http://twitter.com/WaiGuoGuizi 学中文的美国男人

        If we just move on, we will repeat the same mistakes. We need to learn from our mistakes and not run candidates who are prone to take extremist positions and make stupid comments. Otherwise we will continue losing.

        • PhillyCon

          Have you heard the term “beating a dead horse?” Its what we are doing MONTHS later. Obviously, you didn’t read my post as it said nothing about running extremists.

          This is just re-hashing the same crap over and over again for the sake of pleasing Lefties. But you stick with Rove … what a genius wasting millions of dollars on his “electable” candidate. Oh, and his election night meltdown, what a genius sage! Yeah, let’s keep him as the conservative guru!

          As for learning our lessons: how about not running mushy, spineless moderates who lose?

    • http://twitter.com/WaiGuoGuizi 学中文的美国男人

      You are right. Aikin and Murdock lost seats for conservatives by saying stupid stuff. That’s exactly what Rove said.

  • lrjrj

    Rove may or may not be a conservative. And he doesn’t really get into political, but the analytical on elections. It is pointless to criticize him from left or right – he is the messenger on polling and methodology of campaigning, nothing more. And it doesn’t appear he is endorsing anyone or policy.

  • PhillyCon

    Typical RINO … he is fixated on Murdock but says NOTHING about losers like Romney.

    What about Scott Brown losing his Senate seat? The electable guy who said nothing stupid right? What about the other “moderate”/electable candidates they ran in CT and Hawaii?

  • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

    not like everyone didn’t also rip on akin for misstating what tons of studies reported.
    funny, days after the akin magic vagina stuff broke NYT publishes yet another study on how stress and trauma affect ovulation.
    pundits disgust me lately.

  • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

    a lot of this stuff lately REALLY shows the difference between republican (gop) and conservative.
    ones a party, the other is an ideology.
    pisses me off when I, as a social and economic conservative (50/50), is automatically assumed to being in the bag for gop/rnc.

  • http://twitter.com/WaiGuoGuizi 学中文的美国男人

    “Conservatives” like Richard Murdoch and Troy Aiken are the ones we should be trashing. Without them, conservative might have a majority in the Senate. Indiana and Missouri were easy wins for conservatives if it weren’t for those two candidates saying stupid stuff that cost conservatives the election. Anyone who supports conservatives being in office is in agreement with Rove. Those who support liberal Democrats–and the people like Aiken who help elect them–will disagree, because they are against the concept of conservatives winning elections.

    • freeperjim

      Hey! I like Troy Aiken – a Hall of Fame QB for the Cowboys!

  • Sober_Thinking

    Rove… I used to like and trust him… no more. He showed his butt towards the middle of 2012 (well, I saw the real Rove during that time anyway) and he is not a straight shooter… he is not completely honest. He’s a politician… an “architect” who remains behind the green curtain, pulling levers and pushing buttons. Then, to go on T.V. and repeatedly attack Tea Party conservatives is ridiculous. Call him the manipulator… or the architect of the establishment if you like… I call him self-serving and a phoney. His time has come and gone… turn the page.

    Rover is a complete failure. Fox should have dumped him after the election loss.

  • JohnCraven

    Mark Levin should’ve gotten on Hannity’s case publicly a lot sooner about Karl Rove’s trashing conservatives but better late than never.

    Mourdoch’s campaign was sabotaged more by the ‘ruling elite’s” in the GOP than by anything he said. Just as the ruling elite’s did everything they could to try and keep Michele Bachman out of the House, they did everything they could to do the same with Mourdoch and unfortunately were successfu!

    Aiken’s problems were largely self-inflicted. But he still would have been for better than the Democrat that Missouri is now stuck with again.
