Karl Rove: Mitt Romney Had A ‘Butt Ugly’ GOP Primary Campaign [View all]

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.

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?
