Romney Turns on Conservatives, Blames the Right for Lack of Cooperation in Government
A conservative leader who has given hundreds of Americans a voice rather than a few monopolies, reacted passionately to a top member of the Republican establishment wistfully recalling the good old days.
“Mitt Romney is on record…as lamenting and complaining about the fact that there is now a conservative media, both on talk radio, in print, in broadcast, and on the World Wide Web,” conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh told his audience Monday.
According to Rush, Romney told podcast host David Axelrod “that the demise of legacy media had empowered conservative insurgents like this show and others, which has prevented collaboration in Washington.”
Limbaugh said he held off commenting on the story for almost a week to see if Romney’s words attracted significant media attention. Only Breitbart reported the comments.
“Romney lamented that more Democrats are considering themselves ‘liberal’ and ‘in my party, there are more and more who feel they are more insurgent than towards the center of the party,” Breitbart wrote.
“And I think that divisiveness is one of the things that has led to Washington having such a hard time getting things done,” Breitbart quoted Romney as saying on the podcast.
