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!
