GOP at a loss? Karl Rove has an 11th-hour plan to win
He taps government resources to boost candidates in need.


By Tom Hamburger and Peter Wallsten
Times Staff Writers

October 29, 2006

During a whirlwind five-hour trip to bolster an endangered GOP congressman's reelection prospects, White House political guru Karl Rove last week delivered a fiery speech to 500 party activists, then shook every available hand and posed for snapshots like a rock star. He toured suburbs recently trashed by a snowstorm. He also found time to huddle with local strategists.

But the most significant element of Rove's effort to help four-term Rep. Thomas M. Reynolds keep his job may have occurred behind closed doors, when the White House strategist met with a federal disaster relief official contemplating how to respond to the storm. Four days later, Reynolds announced that President Bush would authorize millions of dollars in federal disaster aid for the area.

The timing was perfect: Reynolds broke the news hours after testifying before the House Ethics Committee about his role in the Mark Foley sex scandal — knocking reports on the scandal out of the spotlight.

I will not be surprised at anything that happens at this stage in the game.

The panic button may hold MANY surprises.

the thing that's buggin me is the possibility of the e-voting machines being hacked into.

i believe there is supposed to be a documentary on HBO wednesday night at 9pm. i recall a woman over the weekend that gave a short report about this story on cnn. i think she is some sort of expert in this particular field and has chosen to do this story.

the thing that really caused me some uneasiness is when she was describing how the system could be hacked into from outside u.s. jurisdiction and the hacker program could change the results on any given system with out being detected whatsoever.

sounds like the sort of "the math" that i think rove is talking about.

When this man became President the entire world of politics changed. It was bad before but now it has gone to anything goes as long as we win. It is going to take more then winning elections to stop what is happening to this country.

i agree knight.

with the provisions that are in place in the patriot act bush can pretty much assume complete power at any time he so chooses. even if we do gain a majority in the house and even the senate there is 1 provision that says the president can issue executive orders with no review by the legislature or the courts for at least 6 months.

legally, how do you overcome something like that.

if the dems do gain control i'm prayin that 1 of thier 1st orders of business will be to do a full review/revision of the patriot act. it's the most dangerous piece of legislation against the rule of u.s. constitutional law i've ever seen.

but if the dems do pull the miracle i'm guessin the neocon snakes will go for thier big guns.

it will be then that you will see turmoil of the likes that i doubt anyone now alive has ever seen in this country.

i hope i'm wrong.
