It looked like a great scoop by the Huffington Post a peek behind the curtain of a clandestine meeting where top Republicans, media titans and high-tech big shots plotted to stop Donald Trump from winning the White House. Here's how the March 7 story began:
[Billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the Republican establishment flew to a private island resort off the coast of Georgia this weekend for the American Enterprise Institute's annual World Forum, according to sources familiar with the secretive gathering.
The main topic at the closed-to-the-press confab? How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump.]
The trouble, according to GOP strategist Karl Rove who reportedly made a Trump-bashing presentation that was a highlight of the gathering is that thwarting his partys front-runner was far from a central theme of the off-the-record, invitation-only summit organized by one of the countrys preeminent conservative think tanks.
No," Rove said in an interview. "Not at all."
In fact, the political mastermind who earned the nickname Bushs Brain as a top adviser to President George W. Bush said his address to the assembled luminaries had nothing to do with Trump at all.

I’m not sure which has the longer Pinocchio nose at this point...
Where was Rush on March 7? Not on the radio.
We know what GOPee thinks. They voted for Rubio here in D.C. They can count on Rubio. The only waves he knows how to make are in his foam bath.
Rove is probably lying to cover up the truth.
Bush’s brain, no wonder Bush got almost everything wrong during his 8 years in office.
Squeal like a piggie,Rovian swine !
Rove is such an @ss they probaly only talked about it when he was out of the room for milk and cookies
I’d be willing to bet one of the topics was how Apple needs to open its encryption for good of the country.
Rove is stupid enough to push for it.
Is this True Rush did not do his show March 7th?
On March 7:
Guest Host Mark Steyn

RushRINO has been Establishment for many years.
It would not surprise me if he attended the Sea Island conference - especially since he’s been twisted in Pretzel Logic to defend CanuckTed and the “full-throated conservative” Senator from FLA.
Have no idea when this began, but do see it now with Cruz over Trump. And as to Rubio - he repeatedly said at the time of the hyper gang of 8 Rubio was doing what he thought best in order to stop BO’B from doing more damage to our nation with his illegal handshakes. THIS WAS AFTER the known fact that Rubio spoke out of both sides of his mouth English/Spanish. Rush has lost his touch and needs replacing Someone earlier mentioned Mark Steyn. It would seem strange having a Brit cover American Politics but he has a lot on the ball. Sorry Rush, you blew it this year. Now walk hand in hand with your new bride and enjoy life doing what you’ve always dreamed of doing.
I’ll give Tokyo five Pinnichios for that one.
