GOP Establishment Bag Man Karl Rove Moves on Trump by helping Ben Carson

karl roveThe reason why the Republican Party is better off without the likes of Karl Rove, is because he’s a “big government” conservative who thinks applying a dash of conservatism to Liberal thinking still makes him a conservative. It doesn’t. And that’s why Karl Rove is a pale pastel instead of a bold color.

Bloomberg reports Republican strategist Karl Rove helped set up a meeting between top fundraisers for Ben Carson and casino mogul Steve Wynn.

Rove confirmed to Bloomberg Politics that he acted as the go-between for the Carson camp and Wynn, a sometimes business competitor of Donald Trump, the rival Carson has been batting all fall for the Republican nomination.

“I introduced them but I don’t know anything further about that,” said Rove, who added that he did not attend the meeting.

The mastermind of George W. Bush’s presidential victories in 2000 and 2004, Rove has not signed on with any of the presidential candidates this year, though he says he has dispensed advice to a number who have asked.  Trump’s camp is viewing the effort to help the billionaire real estate mogul’s chief rival as an attack on the front-runner.

“Karl Rove is at the center of the GOP establishment — fearful of what real leadership in Washington D.C. will accomplish,” said Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in a statement when asked about Rove’s role in facilitating the meeting between Carson and Wynn. “Mr. Trump continues to expose the all-talk, no action politicians propped up by their dark money super PACs that have failed the American people for far too long.” Rove helped found one of the pioneering dark money groups, Crossroads GPS, which as a non-profit does not have to disclose the identities of its donors.
