Republican strategist Karl Rove is lamenting the political polarization in Washington, saying he worries that both parties are "broken." “I think a lot of Republicans sink themselves for liking what he’s doing, but not how he is doing it," Rove said of the party's relationship with President Trump. "The parties are so broken. If the leader of the party is attacked, everyone rallies around."

Here's the deal Karl..... party A has gone so far left that its idealology is no longer compatible with a Capitalist constitutional republic. Party B has always been pretty much feckless. Party B cant get anything done if Party A wont allow it. Party A is aided and abbetted my a compliant media who shares it's views. Couple that with an electorate thats been intentionally dumbed down and more interested in tge Kardasians than in civics. It's not that the parties are broken. The whole kit and caboodle is fouled up.

I have never liked Rove and am not changing my mind. He just runs his mouth. Our President has done much but could have done so much more if the weasels in the Republican party had backed him. The members of Congress seem to have one agenda: themselves. They keep their hands out for more money in their pockets so they can run again. They keep their hands in our pockets to make themselves look good. They are all hooked on OPM with no regard for the well-being of America. Shame on them all. Pres. Trump has to go it alone against all odds. I thank God every day for him.

Who even listens to this guy anymore? Isn't he the one that counseled President Bush to ignore the people who were trashing him. Well, we see how well that turned out. The dems were relentless in their attacks on W and with no pushback from the President, that pretty much gave them the green light to go after him, and boy did they ever. Trumped learned the lesson that Bush never did get. He wasn’t about to take it on the chin and good for him. I wish more Republicans would vigorously fight back when the dems and media trash them or the President. Letting them have the floor unimpeded does not work. You cannot appease a bully. They will have none of it and it just makes them more confident and confrontational. You have to give as good as you get and more. They will push until someone pushes back harder. This is a concept above the T Blossom’s pay grade. Being a political punching bag gets you no where which is something that Rove still does not get. He is part of the problem and is afraid of the solution.

Rove is a loser. He is a game player. He does and says what he needs to get elected. He has no principles so he never sees a need to fight for anything. It's easy to be conciliatory when you are willing to surrender everything. Dems are fractured because they have lost control of their party to the radicals, a monster of their own creation. Republicans are struggling because of people like Rove who see nothing worth fighting for. Our Country stands for new and unique ideals. Those principles have proven to provide an amazing result and a standard of individual freedom barely dreamed of. They require a passionate defense against her enemies, external AND internal. People like Rove lack the fortitude to fight for her. They can best serve by getting out of the way.

And I believe at the core of all of this is a lack of having God in their lives, Democrat or Republican. They all believe that because they have been elected they are some type of god. They run around thinking that everything they say or do must be listened to and followed by the people under them. They forget they are equal to everyone else and think they should rule over us small people. I like Donald Trump as President of the United States because he truly wants to work for us. He wants to look at solutions to our problems, emphasize our strengths, and do everything that makes America great.

Just yesterday I got a another call from the RNC asking for money. 'Gotta stop the Dems' blah, blah, blah. Yes we do. But the RNC isn't where I any longer (Yeah, I did for years and years) give my hard earned. And Rove types are to a large degree why. He whp [arises Obama's "inspirational" message. My inspiration comes from the US constitution. And my hard earned goes to those who advance it -- and the interests of We the People. Who that is today is certainly clear. President Donald J. Trump. And yes I tried to explain that to the caller, who just wanted to keep on reading his provided bilge right over me. That until I said a polite "goodbye" and hung up the phone. MAGA!

DemoRATS are the ones that get away with ANYTHING. They can call you ANY name they want, they're violent and get away with it and most Republicans and conservatives are too mealy-mouthed and milquetoast to fight back with the same force. DemoRATS know this. This is why they hate Trump - he gives back as much as he gets. We need more fighters like Trump or like the late Lee Atwater and less Karl Roves or MItt Romneys...

The left wants to impeach the President. The only place for a white male in the Democratic party is if they are a Socialist, Communist, Atheist, or gay. There are some that would not have any whites in the Democratic party. You lament the lack of common ground and polarization. How can their be any common ground when one side says its their way or the highway? What common ground is there on the politics of impeachment? What common ground is there when one side views everything in terms or race and gender? Under Obama, the Democrats moved so far to the left they weren't even in the same ballpark. Fast forward to today where we have AOC, Omar, Tlaib, Sanders, Harris, and Warren, and one sees the Democratic party has somehow managed to move even further left. They aren't in the same ballpark? They aren't even in the same universe!!! The Democrats are clearly broken. The Republican party is broken when they try to work with the Democrats. Working with the Democrats is capitulation since they must have everything there own way. Meanwhile the Democratic party has surrendered to everything that is anti-American. Look no further than there economic policy that costs businesses and jobs. Look at their foreign policy that surrenders to our enemies. The governing policy of the Democratic party is long term suicide. The Republican party has to stake out there positions separate from the Democrats if they wish to survive. If they don't they will be useless, and will not survive. Are you listening, Karl?

Karl, we are in a battle for the future of this great land of ours! Liberalism/Socialism must be defeated. GOPe (your charter membership) is as much to blame as the far left. Look where we’ve come. Marriage is no longer between a man and woman, infanticide is being cheered on, our very constitution is being assailed including 2A and the electoral college. We’re losing our sovereignty. Who knows how many jihadists lie in wait to commit terrorism? We can’t trust our own FBI or DOJ. Politicians don’t care about their constituents or the rule of law, only about money from lobbyists for reelection. They are corrupt on both sides. DJT and those of us who support hiim are officially “woke!” There is no going back to the last 60 years or so. We’re in a war.

Yes Obama said this: "What I see is candidates like President Obama, what an aspirational message. 'I don’t want to be the president of red states, blue states, but rather the United States." But then he proceeded to call us "bitter clingers" and that our accomplishments really weren't our doing we didn't build that and that we should spread the wealth. He also promised to shred the constitution by "fundamentally transforming" our nation. Sorry first you are judged by what you do not what you say. Second, what you say matters, not just one thing you said in a very controlled set of circumstances which is contradicted by the preponderance of what you say in other circumstances which happens to align with what you do. Obama tore our country apart more than any single other individual. An objective examination of the real Barack Obama will reveal that his presidency was the fulfilment of a carefully laid plan hatched by the radical communist left. Revolutions tend to be rather divisive now don't they. Oh but he sounded so good talking about one America didn't he.

Rove is right-- both parties have abandoned their traditional base of supporters for personal glory. They have lost the urge to serve and represent others and have many 'money people' around them attempting to manipulate every political move they make. One of Mr. Trump's greatest attributes is that he isnt a creature of DC, but even he makes mistakes and is human like the rest of us. It is very disconcerting that many of his 'followers' deify him akin to the demonrat socialists and their worship of Nobama. But as least Rove has been there, done that, and seen that and those who wo quickly criticize him have a right to their opinon, but are unwise to disrespect him and write him off so quickly. He has actually been in the ARENA. Theodore Roosevelt's great quote comes to mind: "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat".

Mostly agree with Repliers' summations of Karl Rove's character. Would encourage #24 to investigate that some have rallied around President Trump... the House Freedom Caucus... Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Mark Meadows, Ron de Santis(now Gov. FL) ... thirty members. They threw out turncoat Justin Amash.. who must be replaced next election! So if you have means to help, send it to them. Many of them are currently under dire physical threat from radical Dems... a sorry state of affairs in the US!

Rove continues to be--like his female counterpart on the WSJ Stupid Opinion Train, Ms. But- I-knew-Reagan Noonan--a tedious, bland, devious and highly unoriginal hanger on. Not in a million years could either one of them understand President Trump. They are indeed, among the hordes of DC faux Republicans who continue to nip and snarl at the heels of the President and make entirely disingenuous patriotic noises as they scribble.

The GOP via Ryan and Turtle announced that they were not going to support the agenda of the incoming president. They made that announcement about two weeks before the November 2016 election. I can only assume their internals told them that Trump would be elected. So that is why they made the announcement. They were not going to listen to the voters, not gonna help a country loving president do a darn thing to fix this country. They proved themselves to have kept a single promise and it was that one. So yes, both parties are broken, and boy did you ever contribute to that breakage Karl the Architect.

Rove is dwelling in the RINO world of yesteryear. The system was broken by Democrats decades ago and he said or did nothing. The object of Democrats today is to flood the country with third world immigrants to create a socialist voting block to extract wealth from the people who worked their whole lives to obtain it. TRUMP Republican's object is to stop that from happening.

A brief summary of what BOTH parties have done to us. There is very little difference between the two except for the Elephant and the Donkey. Donald Trump has done great things because he is a great man, no credit whatsoever to the Republican party. The GOP swept the streets for Obama and they initially opposed Trump's nomination. They haven't done much to help him. The Democrats at least have been honest in their hatred of him. Ninety five percent of Congress is a bunch of useless bureaucrats.

Maybe the heat in Washington is getting to the politicians this year. Some Republicans are starting to support populist policies that just a few years ago they would have ridiculed then Senate majority leader Harry Reid for even considering. The left has decided that almost their whole party is going to run for the office of President. With the left controlling the House and the right controlling the Senate, frustration seems to be everywhere -- which means that the perfect storm for a liberty stealing compromise also seems to be brewing. The faster that August break can get here, the safer will be our liberty, health, and pocketbooks.

There’s a sense of urgency among GOP lawmakers to come up with a plan to replace the most popular components of ObamaCare after a panel of appellate judges on Tuesday aggressively questioned whether the law passes legal muster following Congress’ repeal of the tax penalty for not having insurance.

After Republicans lost in 2012, failing to retake the White House and actually losing Senate seats despite a sagging Obama-era economy, two prominent analyses were proposed. One — the Republican National Committee’s “autopsy” — said the GOP’s problem was embracing social issues too much and liberal immigration too little. The other analysis — the “Missing White Voter” thesis — was grounded in actual data. It said the problem was that the GOP of the Bush family and Mitt Romney had turned off working-class whites to the point that they disengaged.

The rhetorical battle between President Donald Trump and Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell is nothing if not amusing. But beneath the political theater is a darker reality: the longer-term drift of America’s economics from the old world prudence of the 19th century to the silly socialism of the 21st. The battle between democratic free markets and state socialism has deep roots stretching back more than a century to World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II.

As dollar stores sweep across America, they are facing growing scrutiny from opponents who argue that discount chains stifle local competition and limit poor communities' access to healthy food. Dollar stores have never been more popular. Yet a wave of cities and towns have passed laws curbing the expansion of Dollar General and Dollar Tree, which bought Family Dollar in 2015.

How happy I would be to tell him ‘YOU’RE FIRED’ next November,” King tweeted. (Tweet) The Pet Sematary author has a history of lashing out against Trump and Republicans.

RUSH: There’s also this story in the New York Daily News. Michelle Obama… By the way, don’t be surprised if she gets in the Democrat presidential primary race after the primaries. Don’t be surprised. I think the Obamas are looking at this as, “The primaries? That’s beneath us. We’re not gonna enter the primaries.” They’ll let these people fight it out, spend all their money, and then when it looks like none of them has a chance of beating Trump, here comes Michelle (My Belle) Obama at the latter moments of the campaign to jump into the fray and save the day for the Democrat Party.

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, one of the two dozen Democrats competing for the party's presidential nomination, said President Trump is weaponizing racial animus to sow division in the country for his own political gain. "He is somebody that is using race like a weapon to divide our country against itself," Booker said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "He's been using it since before he became president as a way to accelerate his gaining of political power." The New Jersey Democrat was referring to the president's recent attacks against four progressive lawmakers of color. Last week, Mr. Trump posted a series of racist tweets suggesting that Reps. Ilhan Omar of

World leaders are expressing support for four far-left Congresswomen in the wake of a series of comments in which President Donald Trump challenged the lawmakers to leave the United States if they continue to criticize the country. On Friday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel claimed President Trump’s remarks about the “Squad” — made up of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — “undermine America’s strength.” She also said she stands “solidarity” with the lawmakers.

House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said on ABC's "This Week" that there's "no doubt" that President Trump is a racist, and that for the first time in his 37 years in public service, he has constituents telling him that they're "scared of their leader." CUMMINGS: "George, no matter where I go, what I'm hearing over and over again from my constituents is, "Please save our democracy. Please save our country." And you know something else they say, George? They say "I'm scared." I have never, in my total of 37 years in public service, ever heard a constituent say they were scared of their leader."

Democrats in Virginia have declared they will snub the President of the United States if he attends a commemorative event scheduled for later this month. The White House has not made any official announcements about President Trump’s plans to attend the 400th anniversary of American democracy, to be held in Jamestown on July 30. But Virginia Democrats have not missed the opportunity to grandstand, defiantly announcing they will essentially put partisan politics ahead of America’s heritage.

It wasn’t so long ago when Beto O’Rourke, the punk-rock band member and three-term congressman from West Texas, was the man to beat. O’Rourke was the energetic, dashing politician who looked like a Kennedy and talked like a Kennedy. He may have lost his Senate campaign to the incumbent Ted Cruz, but he made history by scooping up over $80 million in fundraising in the process. His three-percentage point loss was the closest a Democrat in Texas came to winning a state-wide race in over 25 years. Beto is learning, however, that running a national campaign for president is a different animal – and that viral moments and smooth oratory

House Democrats are hoping Robert S. Mueller III illuminates potential obstruction of justice by President Trump and gives credence to their claim of an unlawful president for millions of Americans who will decide on Trump’s political future. Mueller’s much-anticipated testimony Wednesday is a pivotal moment for congressional investigators, holding promise — and peril — for Democrats as they finally get their chance to question a reluctant witness about his nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the president tried to derail the inquiry. Democrats expect Mueller to describe in detail at least five of 10 episodes of

A “Drag Queen Story Hour” event at a Dallas, Texas, library last Saturday featured two drag queens, one of whom read the story What Color Is Your Underwear? to small children. More than 50 parents brought their children to the story hour held at the Grauwyler Park Branch Library and hosted by drag queens “Cassie Nova” (aka James Gary Love) and “Jenna Skyy” (aka Joel S. Hoselton). “My little cousin dressed me,” Cassie, with pink and orange hair, told the children, reported Dallas Voice. “So, I’m wearing A LOT!” Cassie reportedly also read My Cat Jack to the children, encouraging them to yawn, stretch, and scratch like cats.
