Did the RNC make a big mistake last fall? A new report by ABC News Jonathan Karl has many conservatives seeing red.
Johnatha Karl, ABC News, reports that this ad was put together by the RNC last fall but was scrapped at the last minute because of objections from the Romney campaign, which was concerned the ad would distract from Romneys efforts to focus on the economy.
Regardless of whether or not the Romney campaign actually played a role in the RNCs final decision, many conservatives are frustrated and angry with the RNC for keeping the ad buried at a time when the American public needed to know the truth: ...

How’d that work out for you, Mitt?
When oh when will they GO FOR THE JUGULAR??? The ‘rats stick their necks out every day but the gutless pukes won’t cut their throats. WHY??!? Why let them ruin the country without a fight?
I don't demand to know why.
I KNOW why.
Any "conservatives" who are still wrapped up in the GOP fantasy are in no position to demand anything.
The established Good Ole Pricks did not want to ruffle up Obama as it would make them look like they were petty,racist and beating up Obama for this failure. So instead they became emusculated and stuck their heads in the sand like Ostriches and kept stating everything is fine. Reince Priebus has to go.
They should run it now!! America still deserves the truth!!
Yeah, and the idiots are fundraising off the hearings already, giving some credence to the claims that this is all political.
The 2012 Presidential Election was an election for the taking. It was one the GOP should have won walking away - that election was theirs to lose, which they did. And, now we know, at least in part, why the GOP lost. This BS crap of “taking the high road” pushed by the RNC (lack of) leadership needs to stop. You do not win a war by being nice.
Romney has no stomach for personal fights.
He thought he could win by focusing on the economy....
You can out negotiate a street fighter.
... because the Democrats were so nice to Republicans regarding Clarence Thomas, Iran Contra, Abu Ghraib....
Don’t count on the media for anything. Don’t suffer from tunnel vision, outrage can be spread around, there are plenty of targets. Expect conservatives to both walk AND chew gum.
Rinse Prebuecent, and RINO Romney have a LOT to answer for...
As does Carla Robe
It’s a damn good ad. It could have made a difference. The GOPe, what a crock.
Because the RNC is now the Registry of Nitwits Committee, endorsed by and controlled by the DNC.
Romney , another master focuser. Great.
That is tag line worthy.
Was it Romney or the RNC, the article asks.
Is there a difference?
BINGO! What's their excuse now?
