Rove vs Trump: Sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy the show

Karl Rove this weekend on the announcement of the Trump debate:

Karl Rove blasted Donald Trump this weekend, saying his upcoming Newsmax debate host gig is a big “ego trip” for the real-estate mogul and reality-show host, and that the Republican National Committee should discourage the 2012 GOP candidates from attending.

And Trump responds (warning: wingnut link):

In response to comments from Karl Rove that candidates should skip the debate at the end of December to be moderated by Donald Trump, Trump said that in his opinion Rove was “highly overrated,” and “basically is a loser.” Rove says that a Trump-moderated debate would trivialize the process

“I don’t think that Karl Rove is a smart person. I think he’s highly overrated,” said Trump, on a conference call about his new book. “I’ve watched Karl Rove for years. He’s a man who is only after Karl Rove, and he’s part of the problem with the Republican Party.

Rove, he said, “did such a bad job with Bush in that final period of time that no Republican could have possibly beaten Obama or any other Democrat.”

“Karl Rove is at least partially responsible,” Trump said.

“He’s totally into himself. He’s already got his little candidate picked out and he’s trying to get that candidate in” for his own personal benefit, Trump went on to say.

“I think Karl Rove basically is a loser,” he concluded.

I'd give Rove a 5 out of 10 for being basically correct. But Trump takes the gold with an 8 for the sheer nastiness of his creativity.

Seriously folks, as much as I loath "the Donald," its fun to watch the craziness these establishment Republicans unleashed come back to haunt them. Here's hoping we have 8 more months of this stuff to enjoy!


  1. When evil gets to rockin; Karma comes a knockin!


  2. SouthernGirl - LOL

    Perhaps that should have been my title.

  3. I agree, it's hard not to laugh when two horrible human beings go after each other.

  4. This is hysterical. However, Trump is the more ridiculous of the two.

  5. We've talked about Palin being a grifter, but she holds no candle compared to The Donald. It's all there. He even manages to accuse Rove of everything that he (Trump) knows is really true about himself.

    And he's laughing all the way to the bank as he manages to feast on the carcass of the GOP. And the Republicans have no one to blame for their fate but themselves.

  6. If you go back and look at what Trump said about all the people he doesn't like, he says the same thing about them all. He has it memorized. He always calls the person "basically a loser." What a putz.

  7. Interesting how Trump perceives "Everyone Else" v. "Himself." I've heard him talk several times this week about his wealth and how well he runs his businesses, if only America was run as well. I haven't heard anyone question him on his bankruptcies in 1999, 2001, 2004 (Chapter ll) and 2009.
