Karl Rove was on the Fox News Sunday panel yesterday, where he was unequivocally opposed to Republicans using Rev. Wright to attack President Obama again. But today, Fox's golden-haired birther boy, Donald Trump, said the Romney campaign should "go after Obama" on the subject. Is this the start of a (new) GOP/Fox News Civil War?
Rove told the Fox News Sunday panel:
“Trying to dredge up Jeremiah Wright, right or wrong, after this issue was litigated four years ago by John McCain deciding not to litigate it, was stupid. And so, you want to try and do things that are helpful, not hurtful.”
It's worth noting that Rove spoke more strongly against rehashing Wright than "Democratic strategist" Joe Trippi did.
But Trump, a top Romney surrogate, told Fox & Friends,
If It's going to be game on, let it be game on. Go after Obama.
So will Fox hosts Sean Hannity and Kimberly Guilfoyle - who last week agreed with discredited birther Trump - continue to use Rev. Wright to attack Obama? Or will they go along with mainstream GOP-mastermind Rove?
This summer is going to be a hoot.
