Mitt Romney may have graciously conceded the election to President Obama Tuesday night, but some conservative pundits and bloggers didn’t accept defeat quite as calmly.
Donald Trump made some of the most controversial comments of the night, calling the election a ‘total sham and a travesty’ on Twitter.
‘We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty,’ he wrote. ‘Let’s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.’
He deleted others that called for ‘revolution,’ which he wrote when he thought Romney won the popular vote but lost the electoral college.
Rocker and Romney supporter Ted Nugent also went on a Twitter tirade.
‘Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav (sic) a president to destroy America,’ he wrote. ‘Goodluk (sic) America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools.’
The New York Daily News, “Republicans React to Obama Triumph With Anger, Gloom and Calls to Fight.”
Second coming of the Tea Party, here we come!
- President Obama proved that you can get healthcare reform passed, make loans to the auto industry and generate jobs to help get the U.S. out of recession, move toward ending wars, repeal DADT and speak out for marriage equality, sign laws to help give women equal pay for equal work, and call for the rich to pay their fair share of taxes
- and then win re-election.
And foreign policy!
And sweaty upper lips!
And letting Detroit go bankrupt!
And George W. Bush!(via inothernews)
— MITT ROMNEY, forgetting about Iraq and Afghanistan, I guess.
— MITT ROMNEY, on how the U.S. should get involved in Syria.
This is like that time Mitt Romney gave Obamacare to Massachusetts but not the U.S., right?
