  • 2020 Autopsies for Both Parties. One lesson is that hostility motivates voters as much as enthusiasm does.

    Parties often conduct autopsies after losing elections. Since Democrats and Republicans alike gained and lost so much this difficult and bizarre year, both need sober after-action reviews. Democrats won the White House but not the Senate. They also suffered surprising and significant losses in the House. Republicans have the upper hand in keeping the Senate, gained impressively in the House, kept their redistricting edge by turning back a well-funded Democratic effort to flip state legislatures. But they forfeited the presidency. So what lessons can each party take from 2020? One is that money can’t buy victory. Democrats outspent Republicans in...
  • Rove: Flynn’s Martial Law Idea ‘Idiotic’– Powell’s Lawsuits Could Be Debunked By ‘Any Idiot’

    Fox News contributor Karl Rove on Tuesday criticized former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and lawyer Sidney Powell for the “idiotic” ideas they are pushing to President Donald Trump on overturning the results of the 2020 election. Anchor John Roberts said, “I want to ask you about these meetings that the president has been having a close group of allies about what to do regarding what happens on January 6… that some members of the House may oppose the seating of electors from their states. And then there’s other things that have been kicked around, too, which the president denies,...

    It’s official: Longtime Republican strategist Steve Schmidt is a Democrat. He told “Battleground” podcast co-host David Plouffe Monday night that he’ll change his party affiliation. ... Schmidt has enjoyed a long career in Republican electoral politics. He ran day-to-day operations for John McCain’s failed presidential effort in 2008, served as communications director for Lamar Alexander’s failed presidential primary bid in 1999, directed communications for Matt Fong’s failed California Senate race in 1998, and that same year headed up Tim Leslie’s failed attempt to become Lt. Governor of California. In 1995, Schmidt managed the failed campaign of Will Scott for Kentucky...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove said on this week’s broadcast “Fox News Sunday” that President Donald Trump should be aware Americans do not like “sore losers.” Anchor Chris Wallace asked, “The Electoral College votes tomorrow, and then on January 6, the Congress actually counts the votes and formally declares a winner. Do you expect President Trump to continue to contest the election past tomorrow, maybe even past January 6, and do you think he’s either helping or hurting both himself and the country?” < snip > He added, “As to your second question, it depends on — the answer to that...

    With less than two weeks left before the 2020 presidential election, former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove said it would be more “effective” for the Trump campaign to focus on the economy as opposed to the Hunter Biden “scandal.” Rove made the statement on “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday shortly after Trump 2020 Campaign National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley appeared on the program and explained the campaign strategy to focus on Hunter Biden and his international business dealings to attack Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
  • The Left’s Covid Memory Hole: Contrary to what Joe Biden says now, he and his team badly misjudged Covid-19.

    Last week’s Democratic convention sought to make four points: Joe Biden is a decent man, Donald Trump is horrible, the president bungled the pandemic and Mr. Biden would have handled it better because he grasped the threat from the start. Whatever you think of the first three, the last is a fabrication. But the former vice president likes to say it anyway. In June he claimed President Trump “did not listen to guys like me back in January saying we have a problem, a pandemic is on the way.” In May Mr. Biden said, “If he had listened to me...

    RUSH: One of the things that he did during the speech, he launched into a narrative on COVID that, again, it was narrative. Just literally made it up, and it was an attempt at indicting Trump, criticizing Trump on not doing enough, not caring enough. And last night on the Laura Ingraham show on Fox, Karl Rove just destroyed Biden on this narrative. It’s sound bite number 6. And here it comes in three, two, one. ROVE: Late January, remember, he had said the China travel ban was hysteria and xenophobia. Early February he sent out his campaign to say...

    ... Joe Biden and other Democratic luminaries like to pretend all that’s happening in Portland is “peaceful protests.” That’s hardly the whole story. What’s also happening in the Rose City are violent late-night assaults on the country’s governing institutions in an attempt to undermine the rule of law. Russia and China could only hope to be as effective in damaging the U.S. and its global image as the thugs whose work we’ve seen for almost nine weeks. Nor is this the handiwork of both far-right and left provocateurs, as former Democratic National Chairman Donna Brazile claimed Monday. If there were...

    As the mainstream media all but declares the 2020 election for Joe Biden, Democrats are making mistakes. They’re saying and doing things that could cause problems—if Republicans step up their game. Consider the congressional logjam over police reform. After George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, the nation was angry and aghast. Then Rayshard Brooks was killed in Atlanta, and the demand for change grew even stronger. Yet when the Senate moved to take up the comprehensive police reform bill introduced by Tim Scott (R., S.C.), Democrats blocked its consideration, despite the bill’s many similarities with the Democratic House’s measure. Sen. Scott...

    Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove slammed Joe Biden on "Hannity" Thursday for sending out an email warning Americans about coronavirus and soliciting donations for his presidential campaign. Hannity noted that Biden had joined fellow Democrats in criticizing President Trump during the early onset of the virus outbreak after the incumbent ordered strict border security measures, which Biden's primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., called "xenophobic." Hannity called Biden "sick" and asked Rove to react.

    Karl Rove said that Hillary Clinton needs to either “put up or shut up” over her accusations that 2020 Democratic contender Tulsi Gabbard and former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein could be Russian assets. Rove, President George W. Bush’s deputy chief of staff, made the remarks on Fox News’ The Story with Martha MacCallum Friday night. The comments come after Clinton, 71, said Gabbard, 38, is “ a favorite of the Russians” and implied that the congresswoman is a “Russian asset.” “Over the top, out of her mind,” Rove said of Clinton. "Put up or shut up."

    It has been only 10 days since Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared that the House was “moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry” of President Trump, and Democrats are already blowing it. They are moving much too quickly. Democrats toss around the word “urgent” as if speed is the prime imperative—more important than finding the truth or following procedure. After explaining that events “accelerated the pace” for beginning impeachment, Mrs. Pelosi told reporters, “We have to strike while the iron is hot,” repeating the phrase for emphasis. That means House Democrats will likely hold hearings for a few weeks once they...
