Bush aide Karl Rove and Obama campaign manager David Axelrod join together.

They have formed a company to teach campaign strategy.



I guess we know what bi-partisanship means!

2. I would never support a candidate that uses Karl Rove for campaign advice

Sorry Mr. Axelrod. But Rove is evil.

7. I don't think they formed a company, they are just teaching a class on an existing website

called masterclass. You can also take singing lessons from Christina Aguilera and cooking lessons from Gordon Ramsey at that website.

11. They are making money.

The checks are not being made out to "Karl Rove" and "David Axelrod". They are being made out to a company.

13. Do you have a link to the company or an article about this company Rove & Alexrod founded together?

Thanks in advance!

By the way here is an older article about the founders of the Masterclass website:

15. No.

I just know people at that level always form companies. They don't do personal checks.

17. Of course. Alexrod has a company. Rove also has a Company. Chef Ramsay has a company.

That doesn’t mean Alexrod and Rove formed a company together though.

It is kind of an interesting website. They have changed their pricing structure a bit, but I will never pay money to listen to Karl Rove’s bullshit

Fortunately, I've never been that hard up for money.

12. Not a fan of Axelrod (and certainly not Rove)

Axelrod has always struck me as someone who got lucky and hitched his wagon to a star, more than some strategic genius who helped make a star.

He also attacks a lot of progressives and is bizarrely (or suspiciously) defensive of Trump at times when it's really not called for. Wish I could say I was surprised that he's partnering with a scumbag like Rove. He's all about the $$$.

14. Obama was not a star when Axelrod joined up.

Obama had just been beaten in a 2000 race for Congress by the Daley machine in Chicago. Axelrod was a long time Daley political aide. When Obama made peace with Daley Axelrod joined. I am not saying Axelrod made Obama President but he did know how to do the dirty work needed in any national campaign.
