Rmoney is now Republican roadkill

Romney Goes Grotesque?

Josh Marshall

I’ll spare the jokes since Jennifer Rubin was possibly the most fulsomely pro-Romney person on this planet. And the love seems to have gone, gone away. But here’s what she hears about what else Romney’s been saying about Hispanics. And it’s apparently not pretty.

From the Post

Frankly there have been whispers at the Republican National Committee and elsewhere that Romney has used even more grotesque language, suggesting that the loss is due to Hispanic voters who have become enamored with Obamacare.

Hrrrmm. “More grotesque.” How bad does it get? Are we still yet to hear the full Romney Unbound?

George Allen Adviser Dumps On Romney’s ‘Worthless’ Virginia Operation

Boyd Marcus, a Republican consultant and senior adviser to GOP Senate candidate George Allen, criticized former presidential candidate Mitt Romney's "worthless" organization in the state of Virginia for failing to boost Allen in the final days of the campaign, the Washington Examiner reports.

"It was a lot of activity going on," Marcus said at a panel discussion in Arlington. "Most of it was pretty worthless."

Marcus also attributed Allen's loss due to a contentious debate over social issues began by the state GOP, such as women's reproductive rights.

Dear Smug Republicans, you own Mitt. He's a perfect reflection of your sorry party. Obama won, deal with it.

1. He's your chosen leader for the next four years.

Or would you rather the position go back to Rush.

12. Generally, a losing presidential candidate isn't seen as the party's leader.

For example, Kerry and McCain returned to their Senate posts and continued to be important, but neither was looked to as enunciating party policy or given direction to other members of the party.

Romney, lacking an elective office to return to, won't even have that much. He'll have the choice between the Al Gore model (creating a new role for himself outside party politics) and the Bob Dole model (no significant public role, maybe do a few commercials). My guess is that he won't be much in demand even for Republican fundraising events.

4. Who taped the phone call?

How did they get that conversation? Did one of his donors tape it, so angry at him. Or was it staged to allow the other repubs to start their re-branding campaign.
They have lied so much who knows.

8. "More grotesque". I have no

doubt that racial, ethnic, homophobic and sexist slurs were used regularly in that campaign.
