Conservatives Declare War On Karl Rove – Business Insider

November 12, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Attacks on the GOP Establishment and Washington political class have not been limited to Rove. In a post leading the conservative site RedState this weekend, the Romney campaign is accused of being a “con job,” in which consultants spun “false data as truth in order to paint a rosy picture of a successful campaign as a form of job security.”

The feeling that Republicans were duped by their own is echoed around the conservative blogosphere, as right-leaning writers, activists, and the party’s rank-and-file collectively process how the GOP lost an election that less than a year ago looked to be in the bag. These tweets, from Breitbart.com editor John Nolte, provide a good illustration:

And among Republicans, there is a sense that the Establishment is getting what it deserves. In an email to Business Insider, one GOP strategist summed it up:

“A party who won’t paint in bold colors, who puts out flawed messengers, who doesn’t focus on fundamentals, who pisses off the young and the libertarian, well, that party just got what was coming to it.”
