RW is responding to Mitt's defeat, by doing the thing that caused him to lose
What hurt Romney the most? The 47% video. And from what I've seen, that's how the RW has responded: by smearing the character of the people who voted for Obama.
I caught a little bit of Frank Luntz, and it appears he realizes the folly of this. However the radio host I heard him talking to wasn't ready to hear it, he could not stomach the idea of accomodating the hated 47%. I don't think they will be able to do it, they are determined to keep smearing.
