It is good to hear some conservatives finally wake up to reality. This morning David Frum (Republican) made the following comments on the Morning Joe Show: “Republican party is a party of followership, the problem with Republican leaders is that they are cowards … the real locus of the problem is the Republican activist base and the Republican donor base; they went apocalyptic over the last four years and were exploited by a lot of people in the conservative world.” “I won’t soon forget the lupine smile that played over the head of one conservative institution when he told me that his donors believe the apocalypse has arrived. “ “The conservative followership has been fleeced, exploited and lied to by the conservative entertainment complex.” Gee, I wonder what he meant by that.

This is something non-conservatives have been saying for a very long time. “But because the followers, activist and donors are so mistaken about the nature of the problems the country faces … I went to Tea Party rallies around the nation and asked this question, have taxes gone up or down over the past 4 years? And they could not correctly answer that question.” “The people who put the cement shoes on him (Mitt Romney) are now blaming him for sinking.” David Frum – Morning Joe 11/9/12 “Conservatives have been lied to by people who have been engaged in niche marketing and made tens of millions of dollars.” – Joe Scarborough, Morning Joe 11/9/12 It’s great to hear some Republicans finally waking up. These are things others and I have been saying for more than a decade. The United States desperately needs a functional opposition party. Unfortunately what was the GOP is now totally disfunctional as an effective and responsible opposition party.

But it's great to see a Republican come to this level of realization, wake up Republicans. Republican media invented the RINO to explain their failures under the George II administration. What do they now? Who do they blame for their failures now?
