Karl Rove, Juan Williams, Laura Ingraham and Bob Woodward join Chris Wallace for debate Islamic extremism and 2016 on FOX News Sunday. In the first half, Bob Woodward admits there is no strategy to defeat ISIS.
“If you talk to people in the White House and the military, I think there is agreement that John McCain is right and Gen. Flynn is right: there is no strategy. They have not sat down and said ‘this is where we want to go and this is how we want to do it.’ And the measure of that, as we get in the weeds here,” Woodward said. “People in the White House are micromanaging the tactical situation on a daily and weekly basis. That is not their job. They have to do strategic planning, and say what do we want to accomplish in the next year.”
In the second half, Karl Rove raised the panel’s eyebrows when he said there was no frontrunner in the 2016 GOP field, despite being a close Bush confidant and advisor.
“There’s no frontrunner. Nobody — this is unlike anything we have seen in 50 years on the Republican side,” Rove said. “There’s nobody who has a double digit lead in any state or across the country.”
