Rove to GOP: 'Don't choose a nominee that reflects populist outrage'

Longtime political strategist Karl Rove is warning Republicans not to nominate a presidential candidate that reflects the same "populist anger" that gave birth to the rise of Donald Trump.

In his latest op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Rove explained the GOP will have two choices when delegates gather in Cleveland, Ohio, next July to determine which remaining Republican hopeful they wish to see challenge Democrats in the general election.

"Will the party choose a nominee with a conservative agenda or one reflecting populist anger?" Rove wrote.

"The two are hardly the same," he noted. "Conservative principles provide a winning path to the White House. Populist outrage alone will end in defeat."

The bit of advice comes at the bottom of Rove's latest takedown of Trump, which illustrates the Republican front-runner's shortage of details on a handful of proposals that have become central to his campaign: the wall along the Southern border, "TrumpCare," and the deportation of 11 million illegal immigrants.

Karl Rove

I do not listen to Rove. 

Of course not, we don't want a fighter!  We want to be gentlepersons, rolling over and playing dead to the aggressive Democrats.   Rove has been and continues to be a FOOL!

Oh yeah...........Karl Rove has such.......................credibility

It's not enough to just let off steam - get involved with Convention of States - be a district captain,

unite, give money to individual candidates you like. Argue with your liberal friends - get your church friends off their passive butts.

Keep your guns. Talk Constitution! Talk freedom!

The globalist-democrats cannot defeat us if we just stop participating in illegal law and

say NO. Reply - the Bill of Rights. Urge your state representatives to read article 10.

Convention of states - article 5 - already 36 states have signed on.

Make noise - oppose school curricula. oppose fascist judges - say no - take power, and VOTE for a conservative president, senate and house. 

Karl is a dumb ass RINO. He is a liberal from top to bottom. We can see why G.O.P. is in liberals back pocket. Dump Rove in a sewer where he belongs.

I quit listening to Rove years ago.  He needs to retire asap.  We are all just laughing at him; not with him.

hay karl take a walk and shut your mouth as we have seen how you ran thinga in the past like trator McCain   and mr rove you wish that you was half the man that trump is

The first three words on the white board say it all. I pick losers. If he's a guru, I invented the lawn.

Why let us vote Karl? I will assume Karl Rove will have a place in Jeb's WH if he makes it. Karl's reputation is in a world of hurt and losing one more ... hey ya think he might go away if he can't push Jeb over the finish line?

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
