  • Karl Rove: Trump 'Sabotaging His Own Agenda'

    President Donald Trump has failed at getting the proper message out during his time as a politician and is "sabotaging his own agenda," political analyst Karl Rove wrote in an opinion piece. Rove, who worked in the White House under former President George W. Bush, argued in The Wall Street Journal that Trump's Twitter habit is causing a lot of problems for him. "Mr. Trump has figured out how to tweet his way around the mainstream media," Rove wrote. "Yet by disregarding basic fact checking, he is deepening the already considerable doubts Americans have about his competence and trustworthiness."

    No one should have been surprised when President Trump followed through on his Aug. 15 campaign call for “extreme vetting” of visitors to America from dangerous parts of the globe. But the details of the president’s executive order—as well as the timing and the confusion that accompanied the rollout—are disconcerting. The administration issued its policy Friday afternoon, a time normally used in Washington to bury bad stories. Moreover, it came unaccompanied by briefing papers and talking points, and no officials immediately explained it. It took two hours before reporters received copies of the final order—and another two before White House...

    Throughout Trump’s campaign he was badly underestimated. Some looked down their nose at him as nothing more than a child of privilege, a spoiled brat who was only successful because he got a tidy inheritance from his father. When Trump mounted his historic run, many pundits said he could never win. Well, guess what? He did win, so some well-known political experts are being forced to eat crow, including such famous names as the current President Barack Obama, Charles Krauthammer, and Karl Rove. Besides Karl Rove, one of the most flagrant of these Trump-pessimists would be Barack Obama who, on...

    In an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” the Republican strategist said that Donald Trump’s poll numbers are simply too dismal to end in victory on election night. “I don’t see it happening,” Rove told Fox. “If he plays an inside straight, he could get it, but I doubt he’s going to be able to play it.”

    The revelations from James O’Keefe’s videos about Brad Woodhouse and his group inspired one of my associates to make a comparison to the Carolina Rising affair of 2014 and 2015. You may remember that Dallas Woodhouse headed up something called Carolina Rising during the campaign of 2014 — prior to his ascension to the top staff position at NCGOP HQ. Carolina Rising was touted as a PAC aimed at promoting Republican fortunes in the state. The PAC earned itself some unwanted attention on Election Eve 2014 thanks to a TV interview involving Dallas. Dallas boasts on camera that he and...

    Paul Ryan‘s famous words sure are proving to have an impressive shelf life. Back on Thursday May 5th, the House Speaker appeared on The Lead with Jake Tapper on CNN, just two days after Texas Senator Ted Cruz dropped his own Presidential bid, effectively making Donald Trump the party’s presumptive nominee. When Ryan was asked about formally endorsing Trump at the time, he responded, “I’m just not ready to do that at this point. I’m not there right now.”

    The Donald & The La Raza Judge Pat Buchanan Jun 07, 2016 Before the lynching of The Donald proceeds, what exactly was it he said about that Hispanic judge? Stated succinctly, Donald Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class-action suit against Trump University, is sticking it to him. And the judge's bias is likely rooted in the fact that he is of Mexican descent. Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific? Just this. First, Trump has a perfect right to be angry about the judge's rulings and to question his motives....

    Last week was pretty bad for Clinton: Not only did Hillary Clinton get trounced in Oregon and barely carry Kentucky, a state she won in 2008 by 36 points, but in signs of how bitter feelings have become among Democrats: Bernie Sanders’ supporters went berserk at the Nevada State Convention, and the Vermont senator endorsed Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent in Florida; made demands for seats on the platform committee and a big role in deciding its leadership; and secured four permits for massive demonstrations in Philadelphia when Democrats assemble there July 25. But Trump’s almost...

    EXCERPT “That’s not really important,” Rove said of Cruz’s mathematical elimination. “Trump dismisses the multiple candidate, uses it for as an excuse, saying, ‘Well, I didn’t get 50 percent of the vote until the 39th contest until there were so many candidates’ and yet he turns around and says, ‘Well, you can’t — Cruz can’t get there because there are multiple candidates.’ Well, you know, it is what it is. The question is can Trump get there and can the ‘not Trump’ forces keep him from getting there? Because I think everyone agrees, on the second ballot he’ll bleed. There...

    NEW YORK CITY, New York — Billionaire and 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump told Breitbart News that GOP establishment consultant Karl Rove is so “dishonorable” that the Wall Street Journal should stop him from writing future columns for the publication. “This guy is such a dishonorable guy,” Trump said in his latest exclusive phone interview last week with Breitbart News. “He shouldn’t be allowed to write for the Wall Street Journal.” Rove, earlier that day, had published a piece in the Wall Street Journal, titled: “Vanity Will Be The Donald’s Undoing.” Throughout it, Rove quotes from various interviews that...

    The fix is in; the smug robber barons of the GOP Establishment are working night and day like little Keebler Elves to destroy the nomination and candidacy of Donald J. Trump. As the days go by, it appears that Mr. Trump will have won the majority of delegates by June, but may not hit the magic number of 1237. Mr. Trump could very well show up to Cleveland minus 50 or 100 delegates needed to clinch the nomination. The cable news airwaves are inundated with people like Rich Lowry, Karl Rove and Ben Ginsberg who consistently state the will of...

    Karl Rove, former campaign adviser to President George W. Bush, suggested that "Republicans need to look outside the current crop of candidates vying for the Party's nomination and pick a 'fresh face' if we are to have any hope of winning against Hillary Clinton in November." "Look, the guy with the most delegates is a gaffe machine with little grasp of the way government works," Rove contended. "On top of that he has disturbingly negative favorability ratings. A majority of voters can't stand him. I don't see any way he can win in November." "As for the others who've run...

    Karl Rove says that instead of nominating Donald Trump, Ted Cruz or John Kasich “a fresh face might be the thing that could give us a chance to turn this election and win in November against Hillary.” In an interview with Hugh Hewitt on Thursday, Rove weighed in on the 2016 election and called on Trump to start “acting in a presidential manner” in order to turn his high unfavorable ratings around. Hewitt asked Rove, “If Donald Trump is the nominee, how do you recover from a 30 percent favorable/63 percent unfavorable, as you note in your column today?” Rove...

    A highlight of the gathering was a presentation by Rove about focus group findings on Trump. The business mogul's greatest weakness, according to Rove, was that voters have a very hard time envisioning him as "presidential" and as somebody their children should look up to. They also see him as somebody who can be erratic and shouldn't have his (small) fingers anywhere near a nuclear trigger.
