Even GOP power brokers who crunch numbers for a living refuse to acknowledge the reality that the Mitt Romney lost because the GOP failed to advance a conservative vision for the future. Watch as GOP-establishment “analyst” Michael Barone take a break from reality as he tells an audience in Washington that Republicans lost because they put “too many” tea party “wackos, weirdos and witches” on the ballot.
