At a time when it is accepted we are a divided nation, Gentry Conservatives fielded a moderate no one wanted against a failed socialist/progressive/Marxist and not only earned fewer votes than with the previous moderate they fielded four years earlier, but with Romney earned fewer Morman votes than McCain did and lost.
Even after losing with moderate McCain, getting a huge, albeit, insufficient boost with TeaParty Palin, making historic gains in the house 2 years later with TeaParty fervor, only to lose again with moderate Romney, and at a time when the only energy for conservatism stems from the TeaParty, we get this from Karl Rove:
... In effect, the establishment is taking steps to fight back against Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations that have wielded significant influence in backing candidates who ultimately lost seats to Democrats in the general election.
Utter dumb ass.
Take your gentry ass home, Rove.
