Rove, the former top political adviser to President George W. Bush and co-founder of American Crossroads, a conservative political action committee, said Palin's upcoming trip to Iowa and recent web video are evidence she is gearing up for a run.

Rove warns Republicans: Shutdown could boost Obama

Washington (CNN) – Furloughed jobs, interrupted services, and the potential economic ramifications aside, top Republican strategist Karl Rove is warning a government shutdown is likely to strengthen President Obama's hand as he heads into his reelection campaign.

In his weekly polling memo, Rove notes the 1995 government shutdown bolstered President Clinton's image in the eyes of voters as a strong leader, positioning him for a relatively easy reelection victory one year later.

Rove calls Palin move 'smart'

(CNN) - Karl Rove, also known as "the architect" of George W. Bush's presidential campaigns, is calling Sarah Palin's upcoming Iowa book stops "a smart thing to do."

"That's a pretty smart move if you're thinking about running for president," Rove said Friday on Fox News.

Rove: Palin lacks 'gravitas'

(CNN) – If Sarah Palin is looking for a top political strategist to help navigate the waters of her political future, Karl Rove may not be the guy.

The former top Bush aide says the former Alaska governor has not proven to have the “gravitas” to sit in the Oval Office – and, says Rove, her upcoming reality television show is only going to make things worse.

“With all due candor, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of 'that helps me see you in the Oval Office,’” Rove told London’s The Daily Telegraph in an interview published Wednesday night.

Rove: President Palin?

(CNN) – “The architect” says Republicans have a long way to go until there’s a Republican presidential nominee in 2012.

“There are going to be several geological ages that are going to come and go before the 2012 presidential nomination gels,” Karl Rove, former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “Every one of these prospective candidates, if they decide to enter the race, has strengths that they need to work on magnifying and weaknesses that they need to endeavor to overcome.”

And what about a President Palin?

DNC again hammers campaign spending in new ad

(CNN) – Democrats are doubling down on their efforts to portray the GOP as beneficiaries of shadowy campaign finance schemes, launching a national television ad Wednesday accusing Republicans of maliciously shielding their largest corporate donors in a cloak of anonymity.

"You've seen the ads. Millions being spent by right wing groups to buy an election," the new ad from the Democratic National Committee says. "All from secret donors. What's not a secret is why. Republicans and their corporate buddies want to be back in charge."

It's a message President Obama and Vice President Biden have themselves hammered on the campaign trail and one that has stemmed primarily from the workings of outside groups such as the Karl Rove-backed organization American Crossroads and its affiliate, Crossroads GPS.

New York (CNN) - American Crossroads, the Republican group backed by GOP consultants Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie, will launch its first television ads supporting GOP House candidates this week, as officials there boast about a fundraising surge in the wake of White House attacks on the organization.

A spokesman for American Crossroads, Jonathan Collegio, says the group, along with its affiliate American Crossroads GPS, will begin airing television ads in eight House districts on Friday, and plans to go into 15 House races by Election Day. So far, the group's focus has been on Senate races.

Obama a hypocrite, Rove says

(CNN) – The ongoing battle between the White House and Karl Rove continued Tuesday morning, with the former Bush aide accusing President Obama of outright hypocrisy when it comes to campaign finance transparency.

"For the president to say a legal and lawful action by private groups, which has been upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States, when he himself is relying on political groups….the president is being hypocritical about this," Rove said on ABC's Good Morning America in response to recent attacks from Obama and Vice President Joe Biden over the fact that a group Rove has raised money for – Crossroads GPS – does not disclose its donors.

American Crossroads to Obama: Keep it coming

(CNN) - President Obama's attacks on Karl Rove and conservative outside organizations could be firing up someone's base: Rove's.

An official with American Crossroads, the conservative third party organization Rove advises, and its affiliate, Crossroads GPS, claimed they received $30,000 in unsolicited online donations this Sunday alone. Crossroads GPS is not legally required to disclose its donors. The official says the contributions were almost all small dollar gifts over the internet accompanied by notes encouraging the group to push back on the president.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Karl Rove refuted attacks from the president and the Democratic National Committee that his group and the chamber of commerce were bending campaign finance laws. That seemed to fire up at least one contributor. A woman who identified herself as a housewife sent in $100 online and wrote, "Great pushback just now on Fox News Sunday, Mr. Rove! I'm sick of the bullying by the Dems- it has gone on too long without fighting back!"
