Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times

Why Does Anyone Listen To Karl Rove’s Empty Advice?

Karl Rove says Republican Senate candidates face something like a $20 million deficit verses their Democratic opponents.The problem closing the deal with voters that Republicans are having in 2014 isn’t a lack of money. It is a lack of message.

Desperate Pat Roberts Gets Support From Bush, Palin

KY GOPers Unnerved By Tea Party Coup

Scott Wartman, Cincinnati.com

A recent coup attempt by tea partiers to oust the do-nothing GOP-E leaders in Campbell Cty, KY appalled some GOPers and spurred them to start a PAC to oppose such efforts. While the tea party-backed coup didn’t succeed, it unnerved local estab. R's & prompted the creation of the GOP Facts Comm. 

“Chicago” Republicans

Michael Giere, Virginia Free Citizen

The Republican Party has become essentially irrelevant. It now exists to ensure the consultants are well paid; but unlike its Dem. opposition, the Repubs. haven't learned how to use the media, social platforms, protests, micro-targeting and organization to back up candidates. 

GOP Refuses to Nationalize the Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Starting today, each conservative must commit themselves to driving home where Democrats stand on amnesty for illegal aliens, national security, and Obama’s lies and corruption. This is the golden hour; we can change history and save our country if we act together today.

GOP Turns Amnesty Around on Dems

Peter Sullivan, The Hill

R's are suddenly hitting D's for supporting “amnesty.” Obama’s decision to delay immigration exec. action has given GOP a new strategy. Some GOP-E strategists worry this further risks alienating the GOP from Hispanics they'd need in '16 to win the W. House.

Don't Blame Tea Party If R's Don't Take Senate

Judson Phillips, Washington Times

The GOP Estab. got what it wanted & bested the conservative wing. Now they're shocked that conservatives aren't motivated to vote. R's should take the Senate easily. If it doesn’t happen this year, who will the GOP-E blame?

Rove Blasts Tea Party, Then Begs For Money

Tony Lee, Breitbart

After declaring war on the Tea Party & showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Repubs. to record gains in '10, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate in '14 because of the lack of enthusiasm for his estab.-approved candidates. 

John Feehery: Worst GOP Estab. Consultant Ever?

C. Edmund Wright, American Thinker

John Feehery is a GOP-E consultant whose instincts are utterly tone deaf and as such is a serial loser in the game. The GOP Consultant Class are staggeringly ignorant of the country and voter base they proclaim to understand like no one else. 

Will Tea Party, GOP Estab. Mending Fences to win Senate?

Joseph Weber, Fox News

After a long, unapologetic effort to defeat Tea Party and other so-called “unelectable” candidates in GOP primaries, the DC establishment will likely need Tea Party voters in Nov. to help swing several tight Senate races and win control of the upper chamber.

GOP Can Win Big in Nov.

William Kristol, Weekly Standard

The danger over the next 6 weeks is that Repub. strategists & donors will play it safe and fail to take advantage of other opportunities. The focus will be on the 7 swing Senate seats & on making sure R's hold KS & GA. But there are opportunities in MI (open seat) & in 1 or more of MN, VA, OR, NJ, & IL.

Importance of Scott Walker Race Equals Any Senate Matchup

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Polls show the WI governor race essentially tied. Republicans are right to be nervous. Yet, Scott Walker has prevailed before. The GOP needs him to do it again. If he pulls off a 3rd red win in a blue state he'll be a strong contender for the White House in 2016.

Lobbyist Advises GOP to Spend Big, Think Small

Streiff, Red State

What GOP estab. lobbyist and consultant John Feehery is not-so subtly pushing is a program of increased gov't spending that Obama will sign into law. He has editorialized in favor of crony capitalism. He's not interested in the future of the U.S. or the GOP. He's interested in lining his wallet.

Why The Constitution Is So Important

Daniel Horowitz, Breitbart

As the midterm elections cast a heavy shadow over the political discourse, Constitution Day should remind us that our elections are as meaningful as those conducted in the Middle East unless we demand that those elected officials return to our founding principles.

Is Establishment Disaster Unfolding in Kansas?

Dan Riehl, Breitbart

It should be noted that the poll is from Dem.-aligned Public Policy Polling but if the numbers prove out, the estab. GOP that threw everything it had at propping up an aging Pat Roberts in Kansas during a bruising primary may yet come to regret it.
