VIDEO-- Karl Rove: Stephen Colbert needs "professional counseling on his anger management issues."

ABC News’ Benjamin Bell asked Karl Rove what he thought about the above question from a viewer via Facebook:

Via ABC news, to spare you from having to watch the entire video, the relevant segment about Colbert starts at about 3:13.


How do you feel about Stephen Colbert's big Canned Ham rendition of your head?

Karl Rove:

"Well, look, he’s an entertainer so he gets to be funny and exaggerate things and so forth.  Though I have to admit, when he took out the knife and started stabbing it, I think he might need a little bit of professional counseling on his anger management issues.

“I don’t know whether that was working out his inner feelings, or encouraging maybe someone to maybe mimic him or just sort of being funny.  But there was a little bit of, you know, anxiety in his stabs there, so...”

Below is the Colbert Report segment in question. Color me biased, but IMHO, Colbert the Comedian doesn't appear anxious or angry. Oh that's right, Rove is the master of projection.

I wonder what kind of management Karl Rove thinks he himself might need after all his lies and smear campaigns.

What kind of management might he need after making a total ass of himself on live TV as he went into full-on denial on election night, suffering a meltdown when Ohio was called for President Obama?

What kind of management would be appropriate after he “scared” people with “this Orwellian sense that black helicopters” will confiscate guns?

VIDEO-- Nancy Pelosi: John Boehner is projecting his own failure onto President Obama



Nancy Pelosi nailed it. As Rachel Maddow has noted repeatedly, VIDEO: “John Boehner is, in fact, bad at his job”:

“Nancy Pelosi never lost a vote. She never once got so confused and lost such control of the group she was supposed to be leading that she did not know what they were going to do… She was good at her job. John Boehner is not good at his job.”

John Boehner is, in fact, bad at his job.”

He is so bad, in fact, that he has resorted to projecting his own baditude onto the president. Of course, he also fails to acknowledge that Obama has been blocked at every turn by Republicans in the House and the Senate.

Nancy Pelosi:

"I don’t understand that, because he’s a gentleman, the speaker is. But that remark was -- I mean, it was almost as if he was projecting onto the president his lack of being able to pass any bill that created jobs since he became speaker."

Chris Cuomo:

"You think the speaker is projecting onto the president his own failure?"


"Exactly... Because he hasn't been able to deal with his own party. There isn't anything that he passed that we haven't delivered the votes for him that has been job-creating."

Video- Fox's Krauthammer: Obama Is "Not Trying To Fix Our Fiscal Issues And Problems; He's Trying To Destroy The Republicans"


At this point all they do is project their own flaws. Via.


VIDEO-- Desperate Karl Rove: Obama campaign suppressed the vote. Fox's Megyn Kelly: "But he won, Karl, he won."



As I've written over and over again, Republicans are masters of that old Rovian tactic called projection. If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s taking your candidate’s (or anyone’s) weaknesses and attributing them to the opposition.

Now a very desperate, very laughable Karl Rove is projecting again, but this time nobody's buying it. He sank to a new low (Is that even possible?), pathetically accusing Team Obama of -- wait for it-- voter suppression. Yes, you read that right. Watch him sliming his way to irrelevance on Fox:

As Think Progress points out, President Obama got more popular and electoral votes than Willard M. Romney and "grew his margins within certain voting blocks." Some disenfranchisement, huh?

Rove dug himself into another Fox hole. This happened:

And this, via BuzzFlash's Andrew Kaczynski:

When Fox mocks you, you know you're in trouble.
