The Democrats, with a view to their own Tea y revolution?

Karl Rove, the former adviser of Ex-President George W. Bush, says “Yes”.

“A couple of freshman members in some of the safest places in the country pursuing an ideologically pure agenda that Angers the party base, but could endanger the moderates, which were necessary to the winning of the majority,” Former Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., Monday, wrote in politico magazine on how the new crop of democratic legislators reflected the Tea y movement in 2010. “It’s all so familiar.”

The difference, according to Rove, is that the new crop of progressive legislators “, the Vt is already a large number of so-called progressive about it,” the so-called “Democratic socialists”, including sen. Bernie Sanders, I -.


“There is a bigger problem for the Democrats, and I think that you are facing today, as I think that the Republicans were in 2011, when they took control of the house again,” Rove said, “America’s Newsroom.”


Rove said, the new crop of freshman legislators make it harder for moderate Democrats to be honest about their platforms and the distance of the far-left members of their party.

“My feeling is that it [will say to be hard for many Democrats in the position of, ‘well, I’m not Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] I’m [Ilhan] Omar, I am not [Rashida] Tlaib, I’m not Jerry Nadler, I’m Elijah Cummings,” Rove told Sandra Müller. “I’m not all of these left-wing ideas. ‘Medicare for all’ guaranteed job, guaranteed wages, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. It will be difficult for you to take to balancing.”



Rove also said that while it seemed that the injection of the progressive ideology of the party pushing to the front, the moderate members of the Congress voted and gave the Democrats power in the house.

“For all the press, we draw attention to people like AOC and Congressman Omar and members of Congress, Tlaib and Maxine Waters and Al Green, and Elijah Cummings, and Jerry Nadler, and many people for the more extreme views,” Rove said. “The people that the Democrats are back in power are basically people from the centrist circles, which were occupied by Republican members in the suburbs, in places like Chicago and Philadelphia and New York, and Atlanta and Dallas and Houston.”
