Republican pundits aren't happy about President Obama's reelection, but they agree about one thing: it wasn't their fault.
They insisted the numbers were right, and Rove looked like a petulant child refusing to believe his favorite toy was broken.
Rove then blamed dirty tricks by the Obama campaign.
"He succeeded by suppressing the vote, by saying to people, 'You may not like who I am and I know you can't bring yourself to vote for me, but I'm going to paint this other guy as simply a rich guy who only cares about himself,'" he said in an interview with Kelly on Fox News on Thursday.
Bill O'Reilly lamented the end of a white majority in America. "Obama wins because it's not a traditional America anymore. The white establishment is the minority. People want things."
Very classy industrialist Donald Trump went on a now-deleted Twitter rant, including gems like:
"This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!"
"Well, back to the drawing board!"
"The world is laughing at us."
"The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy."
He might get some traction from the left on that last one.
Ann Coulter is depressed. "I'm pretty pessimistic about the country," she said, speaking to conservative radio host Laura Ingraham.
"People are suffering. The country is in disarray. If Mitt Romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. We have more takers than makers and it's over. There is no hope," said Coulter.
Fox News pundit Dick Morris, who seemed dumbfounded that his predictions of a Romney landslide didn't come true, said, "This signals a permanent change in the American electorate. This is not your father's United States. This is a United States with a permanently high turnout of blacks, Latinos and young people."
The election is over, but the world, and the Republicans, keeps on spinning.
