Rino Rove: Don't "Hussein" Obama

Rove: Don't "Hussein" Obama

The Atlantic

No less an authority figure than Karl Rove has warned Republican operatives from demagoguing Barack Obama's middle name.

At a closed door meeting of GOP state executive directors in late January, Rove said the safest way to refer to Obama would be to use his honorific, "Sen. Obama."

"The context was, you're not going to stimatize this guy. You shouldn't underestimate him," one of the executive directors said. Rove said that the use of "Barack Hussein Obama" would perpetuate the notion that Republicans were bigoted and would hurt the party.

Rove also said that Republicans should refer to Hillary Clinton as "Sen. Clinton," rather than "Hillary."

Right wing figures are set to ignore Rove's advice. Rush Limbaugh used Obama's middle name more than a year ago, and Ann Coulter regularly uses the middle name, once calling him "President Hussein."

Wild Thing's comment.........

Hasn’t Rove done enough to wreck the Republican party?

Rove you rino you there is no way I will stop calling him B. Hussein Obama and Hillary, Hillary. Nope no way. If Obama is so offended by his own middle name he should get it changed.

I hope I can explain how I feel so strongly about this. I understand what Rove is saying, I do. But for too long we have given in to the left. All the way back to the Vietnam War we have seen how the left has mocked, slandered and lied about our military and their missions and battles. The PC thing was brought to us by the left and demanded of us by the left to the point where it effects even advertising, work places, and even simple conversations.

It has been the Republican politicians that use the term 'friend' when talking with a Democrat on political talk shows, NOT the other way around. Why! Why Kiss up to them, it only makes a person look weak, because they have been weak. I am not asking our politicans to be mean, but for God sake stop kissing up to the left. Stand strong and show we conservatives mean business.

The rino's are not the ones that fight for securing our borders, the rino's are not the ones that were our Founding Fathers. The rino's are nothing more then Dem lite! It is the conservative that ends up cleaning up after the rino's and dems, the conservartive that see's how important it is to fight back, to take a stand when others have apathy.

Without the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, Kerry would probably be President today. The Swiftboat Vets won 2004 for Bush, not ROVE.

Rove is a legend in his own mind. Bush entered office with a Rep controlled Congress. He is leaving with a Dem controlled Congress and a GOP in disarray thanks to appointing folks like Martinez as RNC chairman and trying to push amnesty down our throats. Karl Rove has been a disaster for the GOP and conservatives in particular.

Maybe Rove, McCain and his buddy Lindsey Graham should stop calling those of us who are against amnesty as nativists, racists, and bigots. Rove was the one that had President Bush talk about his immigration “guest worker” program during 06....He kept saying it until the base was thoroughly fed up and stayed home.

So I say NO way Rove, take your opinions elsewhere. I am a Conservative and I am fed up with our being told to give in to the left and to the rino belief's and thinking.

The only way Conservatism dies is if all Americans cease to remember the philosophy and the ideas on which this country was founded.

So leave us alone Rove and Shut up!


And this from Rush:

"RUSH:… Okay, so his name is off limits, can't use Hussein. You can't call him a liberal. What other fact about Obama are we not going to be allowed to talk about? That's right, can't talk about his ears, either, because when Maureen Dowd made some comment about his ears, he went straight into the crowd and said, "I'm very sensitive about my ears." She said, "We're trying to toughen you up." Well, it hasn't worked. Can't use the name Hussein, can't call him a liberal, and this is the kind of thing -- look, it's brilliant on Obama's part. He's setting the rules, and everybody's going to abide by them. Republican National Committee, "Okay, we can't call him a liberal because he's going to tear into us, we don't want him tearing into us." Well, I don't know how you're going to characterize his policies if you don't call him a liberal. And, by the way, what's so bad about being a liberal? How come none of these liberals want to be called liberals?

See, Obama's no different than any of the rest of them, folks. No different at all. Nothing new here. The only thing new is the Democrats have now made it official that their guiding principle is "America sucks." But they have to mask who they are, they have to disguise themselves, camouflage themselves, whatever, you call them a liberal, and it's a personal attack. So Obama's now said liberal is off limits, can't do it. What will Republicans do? I can't believe that somebody's name is off limits. I just don't believe it. "

Thank you WT. I thought I was one of the few that thought Rove was a disaster. So many conservatives thought he was a brilliant strategist. His amnesty plan was horrible. His strategy led to a Democrat take over of Congress. HE made the stupid statement just days before the 2006 elections that the Repubs would keep the House and maybe take the Senate. How wrong he was on that. Rove is one of Bush's cronies. Oh, how those cronies have cost us. Rove and the other cronies have done to the Repub Party what Jimmy Carter did to the Dem Party in the late 70's.

Also thinking of that other Bush crony Johnny Sutton. He should be chasing ambulances in Nuevo Laredo or Juarez.

And I cannot forget that Hussein is Obama's middle name.

So can we call him Dumbo eared Howdy Doody then?
(his strings sure are being pulled by George Soros!)
Maybe Mahsta? Maybe that's what he's wanted all along to make us white folks into the slaves some of his ancestors were.
Maybe Moron?
He's just getting on my nerves and I'll use his middle name if I want to. It's still a free country.

In Africa there was once a country named Niger too and it was pronounced 'NI jerr'... so what? Hussein is 'Who sane'... or huSSein? - It's all black & white 2008? Insane, eh?

We're in trouble folks. It's become hard to tell the difference between the RNC and DNC.

Interesting post and great pictures--keep them coming.

Some people should just crawl in a hole and never come out. Karl rove would be a good one. And wouldn't it be nice if American never heard of, or suffered under, any of the Bush or Clinton clans. I wish they would all go away forever.

Karl Rove is still doing his best to torpodeo conservative Republicans and keep the border wide open to illegal aliens and drugs. A pox on Karl Rove!

Hussein, born a Muzzie alway's a muzzie, He's an Apostate unchallenged by Islam, that alone is telling, then let's look at who he identifies and associates with.
Who is PAPA TONY? Antoin "Tony" Rezko (born 1955 in Aleppo, Syria)the restaurateur and real estate developer in Chicago, Illinois. A 'Christian' I might add. Who did Tony fund? Another Christian Senator that he has funded in the past. Along with the Governor of Illinois who named in Rezko's trial. What about Barak and Michelle's mansion and garden deal?
Wait there's more, who was the money behind Tony Rezko and the money man for Barak, another 'Christian'?
Not many have heard of Nahdmi Auchi and his role in financing both Tony Rezko and Barak Obama. Not to mention his endorsement by Louis Farrakhan and the fact that the IRS is investigating his The United Church of Christ as a political organization. We all should wonder what is Inside Barak's Skeleton closet.

Is it bad to say Franklin Delenor Roosevelt, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Richard Milhouse Nixon, Ronald Wilson Reagan, or William Jefferson Clinton? Why is Barack Hussein Obama so bad?

Posted by: BobF at February 28, 2008 05:07 PM

I hear what everyone is saying and don't disagree. However, Obama is a very dangerous individual and the main objective needs to be to keep him out of the White House. Clinton and McCain would do harm to the country but not be as dangerous as Obama.

The Obama Kool Aid drinkers who may put him over the top next November could grow in numbers reacting to excessive name calling reference to his full name including Hussein making him more of an underdog martyr giving him even more votes.

There are so many issues of substance against Obama that these are what is needed to be spread around to show people how wrong it would be to vote for him. I haven't heard one supporter of Obama who can mention anything that HE has done or accomplished that justifies making him President. They don't know his advisors nor any specific plans to make the changes that he preaches about. Bottom line, his supporters know nothing substantive about him.

Let''s tell them the truth and scare the living hell out of them of what a President Obama would do to wreck their lives and the country.

I would not say using the guy's middle name should be off limits, but if using his granddad's religion or his race or his ears is all you have to argue against, you are in serious trouble as a writer/commentator/blogger, etc.

this clown is a socialist. there is more than enough evidence to argue that socialism fails everywhere it is tried. I think us thinkers ought to keep the arguments on an intellectual level and leave the emotional arguments to the idiots on the left. (like his doe eyed followers)

Tom, thanks and I agree with the things you added in your comment. Bush's cronies speak volumes as to the man he is and they have all been part of what has turned off conservaties.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2008 11:57 PM

Lynn I agree it is still a free country. And this dictating to us about not saying liberal and all of the other things only make me feel like some kind of communist country. sheesh

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2008 11:59 PM

Darth, your right and I have to wonder why he is just sooo offended. hahahahaha

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 29, 2008 12:00 AM

Bob it sure has, and it used to be such a huge difference. Like night and day difference, but no longer. It is so sad and infuriating too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 29, 2008 12:02 AM

LomaAlta, thank you.

Your right, I wish they would go away too. I wish they never had appeared on the political scene and only conservartives existed in the RNC.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 29, 2008 12:05 AM

Jack, thank you for those links and the information. Lots of information in those!!

I wish the empty headed people, his followers would use their brains about this guy.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 29, 2008 12:07 AM

Bob exactly and also Rove is the one that started the W, for George W. Bush and the big huge campaign using Bush's middle initial.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 29, 2008 12:12 AM

Les, ...."I haven't heard one supporter of Obama who can mention anything that HE has done or accomplished that justifies making him President.".....

I haven't either and on several shows they were asked directly to please just name one thing and no one could.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 29, 2008 12:16 AM

Mark Krauss, I agree with what you said. And thanks for stopping by.

And if anyone only uses those things they are leaving out the tons of information we know about that people should be made aware of regarding Obama. I honestly haven't seen any conservative only using his middle name or his ears or being a liberal as the only reason not to vote for him.

That is why Rove is out of line I think and especially thinking we are to walk lock step with his sugestions. No thank yo Karl Rove.
