Karl Rove’s time is over: It’s time for a new “architect”

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

While “Republicans” may still hold a soft spot for “the architect”, it’s becoming clearer every day that conservatives are ready to wash their hands of Mr. Karl Rove. And amongst these conservatives is Glenn.

Glenn kicked the radio program off this morning by addressing the dying state of the GOP, Karl Roves “new” plan, and the progressive power grab…from both parties. Yes, apparently the half a billion dollars that DIDN’T get the job done in November wasn’t enough for Rove. He’s asking you to dump more of your money into his American Crossroads organization. Why? He’s going a “new” plan…

“Here’s Karl Rove’s plan:  to make that the incumbent Republicans, the established Republicans don’t lose again,” Glenn said.

…sounds more like an old plan, right?

“Oh! Well, that sounds exactly what America wants, doesn’t it?” Glenn said sarcastically. “Let’s keep the GOP’s heart beating.  Let’s make sure that people like Mike Lee don’t get in.  Let’s make that Ted Cruz doesn’t get in.  That’s his new strategy.”

“Whew! Man, am I glad I’m done with the GOP,” he added.

It appears Rove’s “new” strategy is hand all power over to progressives until the end of the country…which shouldn’t take long at our current pace.

“If that’s your strategy the progressives will be in power forever. Because if you ever do win, it will only be a progressive Republican that gets in,” Glenn told listeners.

Glenn isn’t accusing Karl Rove of having it out for the Constitution, but unfortunately, Rove is too out of touch with the American people to know what kind of leadership they’re seeking. Rove’s plan may have had a chance eight or so years ago, but not now.

“They are so entrenched in their own bull crap that they don’t even see that America is not there anymore,” Glenn said of the establishment.

“Karl Rove defending the GOP establishment is a recipe for death for not only the Republicans, but also a recipe for death for our constitution, and our Republic.”

One of the GOPs biggest problem is where it’s leaders stand in the public eye. They aren’t liked, they aren’t trusted, and they’re no longer being voted for. You can’t keep throwing millions of dollars and the same people, campaign after campaign, and expecting different results.

It’s insane.

If you want to change the image of the Republican Party to voters…the leaders of the party have to change.

“You have to get new blood in there, and you have people like Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee.  You have to have them,” Glenn insisted. “We should be moving that direction.  But they don’t want to hear that. Why? Why don’t they want to hear it? Because people like Karl Rove will lose their power.”

Everyone in America seems to understand this concept in sports — why are politics any different? If a coach has losing season after losing season….after losing season, what happens to them?

They’re fired.

It’s time for guys like Karl Rove to be replaced.

“The people that want to be a Republican or a Democrat is dwindling.  The people that want to see attack ads on one side from the other, is dwindling.  The people who want to even pay attention anymore is dwindling,” Glenn explained.

Why are people disengaging? Because they’re tired. They feel like they no longer have the power to make a difference or change anything. That’s what they’re being taught to believe by the progressive-controlled mainstream media and people like Karl Rove, who keep asking for their money and doing nothing with it but lose.

“If you’re donating to American crossroads now, what you’re doing is empowering the established Republicans to slit the throat of anybody who stands up to them,” Glenn told listeners. “That’s what you’re doing.”

“No thank you, Mr. Rove. No thank you.”

    Beck, it’s your time that is over. Ratings decline, loss of political influence, a listener base made up of old white people, and the constant barrage of doom, gloom and conspiracy from your fear-based idealogy, well, people are moving on from that. America is becoming the Universal Nation, a nation of minorities, working together for your big boogey-words, social justice, in fact for something more American than you have ever had a clue about: Liberty and Justice For All. Cruz is a dud, Rubio is a fraud, and yes, people are tired. Of you guys. The Democratic Party is now the party of moderation, the middle of the road party. People like you are simply shouting carnival barkers, pushing extremism to the frightened, disappearing old guard.  Bu bye!

    Then let the Republican party come to an end as the Federalists and Whigs did in past times. The people themselves will decide if a new party is to begin, and thus what it will become for the future of us all.

    We need conservatives who will put the nation, the people and the Constitution first, foremost and always. This will be the future of our nation if enough people stand up determined to remain free from a tyrannical government, or we will truly go into the night as a failed Republic.

    As usual critten you are dead wrong across the board – the Democrats are destroying the nation and our very way of life and constitution. Your hate is manifest and may you find peace and truth in God and Jesus while time remains.

    the only ( slim to none ) chance they have to save the party is for the conservative republican voters to change their registration to independent or libertarian, leaving the party with too small a base to have a chance to win anything. if a true conservative candidate comes along you can still vote for them. it’s the only way to get progressive rino’s to leave the party. they will not stick around if there is nothing to gain. i say GO LIBERTARIANS!!!

     Social Justice isn’t justice at all. Social Justice is putting one group over another. Meaning that one group is more important than another group. That isn’t equality under the law. If a person break the law it doesn’t matter if that person is black or white that person should be subject to the same amount of punishment. I am a minority and I see the Democrat party for what they really are traitors. They are spending us into ruin. Those programs that you enjoy so much, ponder this, what will happen to them when we go bankrupt. Think about it. Think good and hard about it. Yes I am a homophobe and I am a sexual bigot. My God the God of the Bible is also those things as well, so what. Pro-choice more like pro murder. You and your ideology of death has no place in this country. Look at my community the black community, how has your policies help the black people. How has your policies improve the lies of millions of minorities? It hasn’t. It has made things worst. Your public schools are failing the minorities. The divorce rate amongst my people is high. Black on black crime is through the roof. Look at Detroit, look at how your policies has destroyed that city. Look at Detroit. It is a wasteland.

    Let Rove rave.  His ilk will make sure of republicans defeat.  I will never vote for a McCaine,Bush,Romney type liberal again.  Yesterday some of us celebrated Ronaldo Magnus’ birthday. Until someone of that magnitude arrives, I will vote 3rd party.  Only tea party types will get my vote or money.

    Kree-Tin, why do you keep saying that every woman/girl that wants an abortion is Pregnant Because She Was Raped?  It is Horrible that any person gets raped in the first place, but the main argument for abortion is not from rape pregnancies!  It is about the Woman’s Right to Decide!  The Majority of People that Do Not Agree With Abortion As A Form of Birth Control, Usually Agree that a Raped Woman Should Not Be Forced to Carry Full Term & Deliver if that is Her Wish…  You are so far off track against snowleopards comments of a new party!  What does that have to do with you being gay? Nothing!!!

    And, in Most Foreign Countries, if you are Not Natural Born Citizen You Cannot Buy and Own Property In That Country!  But, you can in America Already and it has been that way for a very long time.  So what little rights we have remaining as Natural Born Citizens have to be abolished?  You have it soooo wrong!

    Plus, You Are Completely Wrong, We Do Not Hate The Constitution,
    YOU DO!!!

    Kree-Tin, Your God Obummer and your other Obamanites would have a Drone Strike on Anyone that they “Only Suspect” as being bad (or really just not in bed with them)…

    Without Due Process or Judicial Review from a Truly Fair and Impartial Judge Elected by the People (not one appointed to office by a POTUS), it is called “Murder”!  Silencing and Killing Anyone that Thinks Differently is YOUR FORM of Justice For All, well that is total Bullcrap!

    *On a Side Note: You said “Bu bye, Glenn!”, so take your words and LEAVE FOR GOOD…  We are tired of your anti-gay rants that are not even part of the Subject Being Discussed!

    The parties are just two side of the same progressive coin. The game has been rigged for a long time and we are given the illusion of choice but closed primaries insure the parties get their progressive choice. Don’t fall for Roves BS hes a progressive in Rino clothes.

    Glenn, do you want to know why Romney lost?  Because Republicans and independents and conservatives — choose your category — are all right, as in correct, about all things, all the time.  So after Romney won the nomination, everyone that did not back him took their ball and went home.  How does Romney get fewer votes than McCain?  It was only possible because the right is always right and if you aren’t in total agreement with them, they go home and sulk — and don’t vote — see Santorum and Ron Paul.  If the right would pull their heads right out of their you-know-whats, they could beat the worst president ever.  So you guys keep looking for that perfect candidate and if you can’t find him, don’t vote — because you could put up the least qualified buffoon ever on the dem side and they will get 100% of the dem vote — oh, wait, they just did that.

    Rove is a RepubliCRAT, he left the Republican party a long time ago. He is way too far left. He wants ultimate power. I for one am quitting the Republican party (as many of my friends are, in part due to Rove) and breaking away – I’m a Constitutionalist. I believe in what the USA stood for many years ago. We have lost what the USA was founded upon. Kick everyone out of DC and start over. Too many Rhino’s in DC.

    Sounds like you want a communist state like China or Russia.  Actually, what you will get is sharia law with obama/hillary.   How does that sound?  Allah is all about social justice – just your kind of god. 

    Look around you and you will see the world collapsing – people are poor and getting poorer, US is giving China free trade and tech and weaponry secrets and selling US oil assets, US has enough weapons to blow the world over 25 times – does that make you feel safe?

    There you go – the message is for everyone to stop being cowards and be indep and not leaning right or left or jon const or libertarian party.  If you don’t want to jump the gop boat, then stop being hypocritical and saying you are against them when you want to keep ties with them. This includes the Paul family.

    Sad to think that a United States President supports all forms of abortion. Supports over spending-no budget and runaway pork in Congressional Bills. Forced lied to all American’s that Health Care was not a TAX.  Not a good example to my kids.

    Karl IS done… but I’m thinking Glenn believes he’s the new “architect”. In the near past, I would have agreed. Theme parks and man in the moon….not my thing.

    A winning party needs a platform agreed by the party as a whole made up of the following:
    - write an amendment to constitution that states all laws, regulations, codes, etc., apply to everyone with no exemptions, opt outs, special deals, and includes members of congress. No grandfathering allowed.
    - A law establishing a campaign time frame – and limited budget.
    - Government is to be removed from healthcare management. Provide tort reform.
    - Positive identification is required to vote.
    - Government expenditures are not to exceed revenues.
    - Calculations of reductions or increases in budgets are based on the previous year’s actual expenditures, not projected future year expenditures.
    - Every expenditure is to be approved on its own merits. President is to identify what specific part of a bill is being vetoed.
    - Unless passed as a law by the government, all past regulatory rules, codes, etc., are null and void. 

    This should be the first year in office. Tell me why this wouldn’t win the election?

    Since Beck has now officially left the GOP, why does he care who their “architect” is?

  • ken.

    anyone who has followed glenn beck knows that he has always been a libertarian, but will back any candidate who follows the values and principles of the founding fathers and the constitution. no matter what party they belong to. it’s about what’s best for the country not the party.

    Your right Glenn. I felt that yrs. ago, but what choices did the citizens have against the GOP establishment?  I almost think America is gone. The odds that she survives seem slim. So many millions confused and so many fools that believe the obvious, ridicules lies from the candy man-left democrat society. Millions of wasted children’s lives due to communist public education system in the country is devastating. It makes me wonder how will this gift from god, to humanity, survive? The Past few years seem like a terrible horrible dream. The left are ecstatic. They love it. They know they are robbing the life blood out of the heart of humanity.

     It seems time for the GOP establishment be made to cave an except young bright conservatives with strong principles. God must be the center of this country. The Iron fist must be used one more time again in order to save the people from evil competence The left must cave or be destroyed too-we know the left will never cave, so they will have to be run out of town. Obama and his administration has given the right the excuse to bring down the thunder! GOP must be held accountable.

     You’re exactly right Snow, if bodies die and you don’t bury them there comes a time the stench is unbearable. The Republican party has long exceeded that time, the only problem now is that no one healthy enough to dig the grave can stand the thought of getting close enough to actually put that dead political party into it. Please God, give us sane healthy young patriots, willing to do the heavy lifting and protect them from the diseases that come from such contact.
