Today, Karl Rove, whose idiocy springs eternal, remarked (on TV) and wrote (on one of the GOP media organs) that Republicans and their president should “Move On From Robert Mueller.”
There is a reason the Democrats have banged on about special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and the “collusion delusion” for two years. It’s a winning issue FOR THEM. And rubbing Democrats’ snouts in their loss is a winning issue for the Republicans.
But, oh no. Republicans are good sports (a euphemism for losers). They want to be nice—and to hell with winning or representing their base. Mr. Establishment, Karl Rove, preaches it:
Team Trump should use the Mueller report to pivot to issues, like the economy and the opioid crisis, that matter to swing voters who will decide the 2020 presidential election. … reiterating old grievances about the investigation’s unfairness won’t materially change those ratings. The president should focus his time, voice and tweets on the roaring economy, impressive job creation and bigger paychecks.
AND, don’t mention immigration. That’s implicit in the Rove-cum-Bush worldview.
