Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 02, 2014

The Wall Street Journal examined FEC data for the most competitive senate and congressional races, and found that Democratic candidates had raised $42.3 million in 2013 compared to $34.8 million by Republicans, and had about $6 million more in the bank going into the first part of the 2014 election cycle. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee outraised the National Republican Senatorial Committee by $16 million in 2013. But the biggest surprise might be how far Republican strategist Karl Rove has fallen from grace among Republican donors. Rove's three groups took in $6.1 million in 2013, Politico notes, while American Crossroads alone received $99.1 million in 2012. All three together raised about $325 million during the Romney campaign and the battle for congress. Rove-backed candidates failed almost everywhere -- more than 95 percent of money spent by Rove's groups ultimately backed losing candidates.

Rove fades, the Tea Party grows, Rein. That is what is happening here. Pub base donors are rejecting neocons.

That is how monsters work: use one useful idiot until his utility is ended, dispose of him, and move on to others.

The fascisti doesn't care about anything other than its own power.

Never has and never will.

Your remarkably short term memory must be both a blessing and a curse.

A blessing, because it allows you to live within your bubble-reality unencumbered by thoughts of Reagan-Dubbya's deficit spending and Dubbya sacrificing 4,000 + Americans and 500,000 Iraqi, mostly civilian, lives to an unnecessary war. A curse because I can only assume that your condition renders you unfit to hold any position of responsibility higher than a doorstop.

Voting doorstops are people too, my friend.

Kinda sorta wish they would have felt that way back before we cut taxes and invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, when I read your posts or others from the right I find it sort of insulting to those of us who were called traitors and such back when you were cheering on the spending and wars and "deficits don't matter" Presidents.

Rove will either double down on his PAC career or he'll start another career as a professor of political dirty tricks at one of those ultra right wing universities.

Oh noes! Babbles NEVER voted for Bush. He was ACTIVELY and LOUDLY deriding his deficits and invasion of IRaq from day 1.

That is why he is known as "----- formerly known as bush lover 2" which is the name he chose in 2009.

How convenient that history started 1/20/2009.

"How convenient that history started 1/20/2009."

I would think that another name change would be in order for him so that he could distance himself from the embarrassment of his former idolization of G.W. Bush. It gets sort of pathetic to read his posts today decrying deficits, it's actually kind of sad in a funny sort of way.

I don't know Corky, These two, Cruz and Paul are making idiots out of the Democrats. Whatever they are doing, it's working. There are a bunch of young Tea Partiers up and coming and America likes them.

The problem is that the Echo Chamber you live in is rather small.

They are both laughing stocks. Only half wits still think of them as Presidential.

What this country needs is a 90 day election cycle with zero advertising costs. Never happen. Goodbye freedom and democracy.

You don't understand, Danni, 30% is a majority if it's the right 30%!

Hahahaha......what happened to Rove's grand plan to rid the GOP of the crazies?

Well, they've taken over the asylum and thankfully the majority of the nation realizes how crazed they are.

Y'all should pay attention, Rove lost his MOJO when he crossed the TEA party. Moderate establishment Republicans are in the cross hairs. The activists are more and more in the Librarian/paleo-conservitive camp. The Democrats are now in the hands of the New Left vets from the anti-war movement during the 70s. One group is much longer in the tooth than the other. The future belongs to the young. I will predict the Republicians will increase in the house and take control of the privileged 100. Obama maters less than Nixon dis in 74.

Karl acts as if he's attempting to fake his own political campaign financing death certificate.. The money they stole is far more real than any Republican Rove financed.

No wonder so many GOTP are also Christian.

They just seem to love being Bamboozled.

This is the beginning of the end of the GOP. The crazies are going to overwhelm the primary process and nominate unelectable retards who will get their butts kicked by democrats. At this point 2016 and future presidential elections are extreme long shots for the GOP. They really believe that they can sell their ultra right wing nonsense to 51% of the country when 53% of the country are absolutely revolted by tea party political philosophy.
