On his Monday program, syndicated conservative talker Mark Levin was irate at the news that former Bush administration deputy chief of staff Karl Rove is launching a political action committee to help electable Republicans win primaries.
“I just love the way these crony capitalist Republicans — these big government Republicans, these establishment Republicans — I love the way they invoke William Buckley,” Levin said. “They invoke Ronald Reagan. Sometimes they like Obama; they invoke the Founding Fathers. And to what ends? To trash us? See, we can’t win, but the problem is we do win. Yeah, we have our losses, but that’s why we call them elections.”
Levin, the author of “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America,” went on to question why Rove and his American Crossroads colleague Steven Law are so interested in the primary process.
“Who the hell died and made Karl Rove queen for the day? And his sidekick Steven Law, with their disastrous records? As somebody who was active in the Reagan campaign in ’76 and ’80 and served in his administration for eight years, I don’t remember Karl Rove. I don’t remember Steven Law. I don’t remember Mitch McConnell or John Boehner. I’m sure they were active in the Republican Party, but they weren’t active on matters of principle. They just weren’t. …”
” … Well, we — the tens of millions of us, Mr. Law — know what we tell you? Screw off.”
