Karl Rove: Mitt Romney Had A ‘Butt Ugly’ GOP Primary Campaign

Source: Mediaite

Continuing the post-election Republican streak of using buttocks-related phrases to describe the party’s electoral defeat, GOP strategist and Fox News analyst Karl Rove said Wednesday night that Mitt Romney lost thanks in part to a “butt-ugly” GOP primary campaign that helped paint him in an “unfavorable light” for the actual presidential campaign season.

Rove made the case that Romney’s campaign took severe damage at multiple points throughout the 2012 presidential campaign. The brutally long Republican primary campaign had “way too many debates,” Rove said, adding that they tended to focus on social issues and less on the economy at hand.

“Mitt Romney had what I scientifically call a butt-ugly primary,” Rove added.

-snip-

Rove’s use of the phrase “butt-ugly” is one of a slew of recent scatological and/or gluteal phrases major Republicans have used while describing Romney’s defeat. On Monday, Grover Norquist told CBS that Obama won by successfully painting Romney as a “poopy head.” This morning, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said the GOP needs to undergo a “proctology exam.”

Yes, Karl, that's what happens when you have butt-ugly politicians, strategists, pundits and faux journalists using butt-ugly rhetoric and ads and tactics to try to divide and dumb down the electorate and suppress the vote when all the butt-ugly manipulation to try to reach your butt-ugly goals still fails.

You and the other Repukes made that hog trough, Karl. Did you think it was going to produce beauty-spa results?

29. It's the Primate Way

When any of the Great Apes engage in aggressive displays in territorial competitions, they'll often throw handfuls of feces at their opponents. Heck, all the way back to little furry mammals, males of many species mount one another to symbolically show dominance.

The Republicans are basically doing the same thing right now, but with words (though it would probably be more interesting if they just threw handfuls of shit).

26. The ENTIRE GOP had a butt-ugly GOP primary campaign

The root of the GOP's problem was their field -- a problem they should have begun addressing right after 2008, when McCain was their least worst candidate. But what did they follow it up with? A field led by their MOST worst candidate!

are not going in to politics. If they do they get marginalised like Huntsman. Who is left are the conmen or the religious patsies. So the GOP primaries are a circus. Couldn‘t happen to a nicer bunch of ***holes.

42. Bingo.

I agree with what he is saying though it is funny that he is blindly oblivious to the role he has played in making the GOP base what it is. It's pretty rich to hear this considering he was likely the guy behind swift boating, black babies born out of wedlock, how 'liberals' and 'conservatives' saw 9/11 (not likely in this case, definitely), running the 2004 campaign on 'God, guns and gays'. Oh and let's not forget 'We're an empire and we create our own reality' Did you ever think you were part of the problem, Karl? You people have created a world that doesn't exist for your base and when it is dragged out into the sunlight of reality, like a vampire, it recoils and turns to dust.

that Neil Newhouse was not only dead wrong about the polls, but that he was using the Big Lie technique on them instead of simply on the American people.

This is why they're all going around so absolutely stunned that it's difficult for them to form words, let alone any words that make sense. They believed their own Big Lie this time.
