Its not like Karl Rove is pretending to be neutral in this election. You tend to take what he says with a grain of salt.

Karl Rove merely generates news worthy of headlines: It is the news editor that writes the actual headline (such as this one) who decides whether to make that headline polarizing or not.

I like Karl (former Olympus High Grad). Karl gets his white board out and explains stuff - by the numbers. This is how I think - I'm an engineer and numbers don't lie.... but Obama does!!!

Two of the sources cited in the article (Bloomberg)s Business Week and Politico are heavily promoting Obama.

As for partisan political commentators; lets have a discussion about Chris Matthews, and Andrea Mitchell - for starters.

Ah yes, Karl Rove and Dick Cheney --

The ventriloquists behind George W. Bush.

OK lets see if this clears the screeners because so much of what I offer does not but I'll use the same language as other post here. I use numbers in my business and they don't lie but as we saw in Bush's 8 years in office and Romney's current campaign, they do!!!

re:LDS Liberal

As I recall, Bush never used a teleprompter. Hmmm. I wonder which president is NEVER without one? It seems to me that teleprompters or as they are better known as "dummy prompters" are for those who have NO CLUE what to say unless someone writes the script for them. I think American's most revealing look at the liberal messiah without his trusty prompter was the first debate when he looked like a guy who had forgotten his wallet in a Costco check out line. That clueless and lifeless stare combined with an occasional angry and snarky remark. I guess in the next two debates he at least practiced more angry and snarky one-liners.

Karl Rove is a GOP politicians public relations person. This President, ever since 2007 has been in the hip pocket of almost every news media source, including Internet and Cable. They don't hold him to accountability and don't surface anything that would be potentially detrimental with this Administration. The President has such a large White House and has had his Chicago Group and pundits making anything that the Republican say and do to look negative for campaigning advertisements since the GOP debates with an entourage of candidates expressing their views. These haven't been policy statements as Governor Romney is still just a candidate. A lot of water will go under the bridge between now and January and when he the appointed Department and Agency heads and his White House staff he will be able to solidify his beliefs and ideas to policy statements. He won't wait until two weeks before his re-election to come up with a 20 page pamphlet as his policies will have written statements. That will give the Department, Agency and his White House staff guidance instead of just negative comments about the Congress. This President forced his Democratic Congress into a corner.

Boy, better hope Romney never uses one, or we'll know he is using a "dummy prompter" because he has "NO CLUE" what to say unless someone writes the script for him. Kind of like that clueless and lifeless stare Romney had in the foreign affairs debate!

Wow, and it took two seconds to find out that Bush used a teleprompter, and practically every president since the '50s has used a teleprompter. We'll chock that up to bad recall, Patriot!

Karl Rove points out facts about the polls that the mainstream ignore. He is very detailed and his opinions are backed up with facts.

I don't like Rove. IMHO he's the one who started the GOP bidding war for Latino votes by dangling amnesty for illegal aliens in front of them. He convinced GWB that the nation was just like Texas in that regard. It was a foolish assessment and led to wider acceptance of illegals.
Winning votes at all costs is not a valid strategy and led to the schism of the Tea Party, which Karl detests.
I have no trouble tuning out the likes of Rove and Carville because they cause the erosion of party principles.

Let me finish (and correct) your sentence. Karl Rove points out facts about the polls that the mainstream ignore. He is very detailed and his opinions are backed up with facts WHICH PROVE HIM WRONG.

Karl Rove is nothing more or less than an extreme far right fanitic and political hack. I don't understand why anyone gives him any attention or credibility at all.

I like when people bring up people in G W Bush's admin(Rove and Cheney), but forget the fact that Colin Powell was also in that Administration. Must be because he backs Obama so now he has been forgiven. Laughable at best.

Colin Powell may be a good General, retired, and he could have been a good Presidential candidate for either party. He chose to link up with the Republicans but has chosen to do his anti-Republican process for the last two elections. He publicizes his discontent and appears to be bitter about his time as Secretary of State. He is a politician and even as a General is a politician, even though he can't campaign. He chose to serve President Bush, both of them as high ranking officials in both, one military and the other political.

He is an adult and has shown his discontent at various times. He chose to serve and pursue the war in Iraq or could have resigned. He chose to stay in as the Secretary of State with all the power and authority that went with that office, even the negative parts also.

President Nixon was also a Republican that didn't bring integrity and a legacy of a positive nature. People that abuse power, usually take people down with them. The Constitution and precedence sets the process for dealing with those abuses. They fall where they fall.

Truth is truth. Only facts change.
