Report: Karl Rove Advising Trumpís Reelection Campaign

Karl Rove, the political architect of President George W. Bush’s successful 2000 and 2004 White House campaigns, is advising President Donald Trump’s reelection bid with a focus on swing-state battlegrounds and voter outreach, Business Insider reported Thursday.

While Rove’s role is both informal and unpaid, the longtime establishment Republican consultant has been in periodic contact with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and campaign manager Brad Parscale, the news outlet said. The report comes after President Trump is said to have recently met with his political advisers at the White House to discuss his polling and fundraising figures with Rove in attendance, according to the New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman.

Speaking in February at the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, Florida, Rove said President Trump “should be a shoo-in because the economy is great” — however — “The personal attributes of the president make this a contest” against former Vice President Joe Biden.

Bad idea.

I hope his “advice” is being used as a guide to what not to do.

The Scorpion and the Frog

The dying frog asks the scorpion why it stung the frog despite knowing the consequence, to which the scorpion replies: “I couldn’t help it. It’s in my nature.”

Rove has a good grasp of the technical aspects of campaigning. His advice about what to talk about is probably useless or counter productive. He would turn it into another G.W. Bush campaign. What did he ever talk about? The only thing I can recall is “compassionate conservatism”, a vague, abstract, essentially meaningless term. No gun rights, judges, abortion, border, Chinese destruction of our manufacturing base, etc.

Yup. I do remember that. This pile of garbage was the chief election advisor for Pierre Delecto. Unfortunately, he was the deep state agent to intentionally sabotage him allowing Klownie the Kenyan to 2nd term..

“Rove [provides] and an inherent entry point for otherwise skeptical party stalwarts.”

so that makes it even worse, WAY worse! Rove is the proverbial camel’s nose in the Trump tent for the Bushites/RINOs/GOPe ...
