WATCH: Rove’s Dark Money Group Releases New Attack Ad

December 5, 2012 12:25 pm Category: Memo Pad 32 Comments A+ / A-

The election may be over, but Karl Rove’s dark money group isn’t going away.

Crossroads GPS, the 501(c)(4) “social welfare” spinoff of Rove’s Super PAC, has released a new ad attacking President Obama’s efforts to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff.”

“The time for politics has ended,” the campaign-style attack ad ironically declares one month after election day. “We need bipartisan ideas we can all support.”

President Obama and the White House are unlikely to lose much sleep over Crossroads’ new ad campaign; after all, in the 2012 campaign, Rove’s groups spent $175,420,435 on 33 general election campaigns — but ultimately did not support a single winning candidate.

The report finds that in the first 20 months following the attacks, five

    $175 Mill and not one win? Wow, what does take for them to get it? They don’t want to pay a dime more in taxes – which would be a benefit to America, but will throw millions down the drain for a lost cause. Pathetic.

    • Sand_Cat

      Not just a lost cause, but one harmful to America.

    • tobyspeeks

      It’s because Obama isn’t white.

      • Michael Welch

        Republicans have already said that they want a country inhabited only by descendants of white Caucasian European nations. How they plan to get rid of the other 52% of American citizens who are not white Caucasian European descendants, I don’t know. Maybe they’ll get inspiration from Treblinka or Auschwitz. VOTE DEMOCRAT if you’re not racist!

    • dalnb

      Their interest reflects the individual and personal concerns of the GOP leadership; it is not as important who wins as it is how much they make for themselves in the long run. If it were not for the money in it they would not be doing what they do; patriotism, dedication to nation, a desire to see America return to the greatness it once was is no where in their personal values.

    Mr. Rove will see the distruction of the American Dream! His large money spenders did not win one election! Mr. Rove has alway taken the low road and wants to kill democracy! Mr. Rove please go away and hide somewhere! The American citizen is very tired of viewing your face and political smarts in trying to become a leader! You are a shame as a citizen! Mr. Rove please run for office and you will learn what it takes to become a leader or follower!!!

      Carl, You give Fat boy with big ego too much credit calling him Mr. It should be Dip Stick. other than that you are right on target.

    Karl Rove is a troll that roams the netherworld. He is the antichrist and evil personified. After all the lies and deceptions that he led Republicans to believe leading up to the general election, I find it fascinating that anyone still believes anything this scum has to say. Yet, brain-dead, right-wing automatons will continue to swallow everything he says. Major corporations and conservative media moguls will endow him with millions of dollars to continue his propaganda of lies and distortions. Republicans and conservative don’t want the truth. They want to be lied to so they can feel good about themselves and their wrong ideas even though it is contrary to all reality. They prefer living in their own little bubble or LaLa land.

    • dalnb

      Well stated! I believe though Rove is on his way out as those who continue to dump their money into his failing efforts will soon see he is far more Con than business man or ccated Republican. He has no place in honest politics – current Republican leaders will soon be pushed aside by new leadership who can now see what years of people like Rove and Mitch McConnel have done to the party and to America!
      America will shun Rove; lets hope the voters in Kentucky will do the same with McConnell!

    think KR is only a puppet. He jumps and jingles according to what he’s told to do. But looking at ad from outside, it’s pretty neutral and not much of an attack ad. Yes US needs bipartanship and yes, there neds to eb a ral financial plan. Says nothing but obvious.

  • http://twitter.com/SAJP Sa Janes

    It’s pretty obvious by now that Rove is in the business to support the powerful, wealthy military/defense industries and the money manipulators/paper shufflers of Wall Street who create nothing of value for society–those who do nothing good whatsoever for anyone except themselves and each other–what has become the status quo for the GOP.

    Are these propaganda peddlers BIG employers of the American public? No. They are the largest, most destructive, most ultimately useless parasites in America, bar none.

    It’s high time these neocon scumbags retired to their multi-million dollar retreats and penned their memoirs while getting out of America’s way to a brighter, saner, more secure future.

  • lambypie

    What a waste look what all the good that could have come out of that money if it had been used to better peoples lives instead of playing politics with it. What a crying shame. It just makes me sick! :(

    Hopefully he will be relegated to ‘has been’ status. The man is loathsome

    I am pretty shocked. Karl Rove should be doing the right thing and giving all that right wing money back.

    After all, that would be the honorable thing to do.

    Of course, I am not privy to the inner workings of Karl or any of his organizations. Maybe they are in the process of writing the refund checks while we are writing these comments.

    The short video would have been more acceptable if it were run while George the Second and his trusty sidekick Dick were bankrupting the United States, each individual State, and the rest of the world.

    This is nothing more than creating a train wreck, then blaming the first responders for not cleaning it up fast enough.

    WOULDN”T IT BE GREAT IF ROVE AND HIS EVIL PAC CREW GAVE MONEY TO THE POOR, NEEDY AND ESPECIALLY THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE SANDY. HE, ROVE, WILL DIE AN EVIL NASTY MAN, NEVER WINNING AGAIN, HO, HO HO.

    • jarheadgene

      Unfortunately, Rove has no “Jacob Marley” to warn him of his impending DOOM ! Oh the words of Jesus have been around his whole life, not that he ever read them or heeded them, no, he only listens to his own god……MONEY.

      Rik …. I have a strong faith in Jesus, the one of the Bible. Just as the GOP had their empty chair representing the FAKE Obama, they have been inventing and re-inventing this last 4 years. Many people have a FAKE Jesus in many made up versions. I have made many enemies of the extreme right, as they too can follow a FAKE Jesus, one that denies helping the poor, elderly and disabled. I know what I have read, in the bible, and NO WHERE does Jesus say blessed are the RICH who hoard and love greed and money, and who will lie at all costs to protect their own candidates and wealth.

    Isn’t it funny how the GOP not only lies to the people, they can’t even tell the truth to each other. The GOP believes if you lie about something long enough it becomes true.

    Hello Karl ! I have a used car dealership and need a salesman . Salary commensurate with the ability to lie.

  • Jack Wormer

    As Rove’s greatest “success” (Bush-Cheney Plague X2) has proven, Rove will only besuccessful with WEAK, SUPERFICIL, AND DUMB but rich clients!
    Can we sya “CON MAN”?

  • commserver

    No wonder there is the Fiscal Cliff. The GOP have to recoup in some way.

  • ococoob

    Hopefully, Rove, Morris, and their ilk will go the way McCarthy did in 1950′s, irrelevance and a joke. Go away and stay away.

    A skunk always stinks, can’t the Repubs figure it out?

  • dalnb

    It is simply pathetic how people who have managed to gain the most unthinkable wealth can be taken in by people like Rove. Anyone who has looked at Rove’s track record over the past 12 (+) years can see the man is a slick talker but lacks the ability to be anymore than a con-artist. It is people like Karl Rove who puts a bad name on politics! The man is more interested in building his own wealth than in doing anything to help get America back on track!
