Absolutely the fault of the GOP-E. The GOP needs to cease to exist.
And a big part of the GOPE is the shills that keep supporting them end empowering them to sodomize us at every opportunity.
Take away their support and you take away their power.
This is old ground. One can blame the GOP, karl rove or whoever you wish. There is some merit to that. But conservatives themselves were to blame by splitting the vote between newt and santorum. Rallying and uniting conservatives is like trying to herd cats.
