President Obama’s primary goal is to take control of Congress in 2014, which is why he has become more confrontational and partisan, Karl Rove said in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.
O’Reilly said he has seen a definite change in the president’s demeanor since re-election, calling Obama much less patient with those who disagree with him. Others have also noticed, O’Reilly said, referring to comments made by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
“Most presidents in their second term feel liberated,” Rove said. “They try to achieve big things for the country by bringing people together. Not this president.”
“It’s a small agenda,” Rove said of Obama’s goal to win the House and Senate in 2014, adding it would be a difficult election for the president and coule cause the partisan divide to grow.
Rove commented on the latest NRA ad, the reaction by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie , and how the posturing has already begun for the 2016 presidential race.
