The man known as ‘Bush’s Brain’ and who Bob Woodward says will just ‘never go away’ is championing the perpetuation of a failed Republican strategy. During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Karl Rove actually asserted that if Hillary Clinton runs in 2016, Republicans should not attack her.
In making his argument, Rove advises Republicans to say what they’re for instead of what they’re against. What he fails to acknowledge is that conservatives are FOR honest government. Fighting the corruption of the Clintons and the Obama administration is what conservatives are for. Rove is clueless about this while simultaneously running interference for Hillary.
Via Fox News (1:00 mark):
Perhaps there is no better example of the failed strategy behind Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign than his third debate with incumbent Barack Obama. The Republican nominee put his gloves down and rolled over. We were told that it was a calculated effort to portray Romney as the statesman who would win the day because the economy was so bad.
He lost for one simple reason; voters didn’t turn out because he wasn’t seen as a fighter.
Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove was heavily invested in a Romney victory and had a meltdown on national television on election night.
Now, instead of going away, he’s advocating the same failed strategy with Hillary Clinton.
