Top Five of Dumbest Republican Quotes of 2012 came from Republicans during the presidential campaign.

1. Mitt Romney: “I’m in this race because I care about Americans. I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there.”

2. Mitt Romney: “I went to a number of women’s groups and said ‘Can you help us find folks?’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”

3. Roger Rivard:  On what his father told him: “He also told me one thing, ‘If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry. Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she’s not going to say, ‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.’ All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she’s underage. And he just said, ‘Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,’ he said, ‘they rape so easy.’

4. Richard Mourdock:  ”I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

5. Todd Akin: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down.” 

Honorary mention: 

Ann Coulter (tweet):  “I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.”

Red State founder Erick Erickson is one conservative I can tolerate. He has a new column out that slams the Republican Party, saying the ” root of all evil, for the Republican Party evil is located on the fifth floor of 66 Canal Center Plaza, Alexandria, VA 22314.”

This is like putting the fox in charge of the hen house. The fifth floor of 66 Canal Center Plaza reveals a tangled web of incestuous relationships among Republican consultants who have made millions all while the GOP went down the tubes. Here the top party consultants waged war with conservative activists and here they waged war with the Democrats. On both fronts, they raked in millions along the way with a more fractured, minority party in their wake. And they show no signs of recognizing just how much a part of the problem they are.

According to a Lexis business search, the fifth floor of 66 Canal Center Plaza houses the following groups:

  • Crossroads Media
  • Black Rock Group
  • WWP Strategies
  • Restore Our Future
  • Targeted Victory
  • DDC Advocacy/Blue Front Strategies
  • Target Point Consulting
  • Digital Franking
  • Americans for Job Security

The New York Times has a great graphic on these relationships.  Source:  Red State

We have written pretty extensively about the money that flowed in the presidential campaign in favor of Mitt Romney from some of the same organizations Erickson mentions, Restore Our Future, Crossroads Media and Americans for Job Security, in particular. They stopped at nothing to muddy up the waters on both sides. Karl Rove’s grimy fingers are all over this as well. It is a sad commentary that all these Republican consultants made millions pushing a vile and disturbing “Republican Party brand” that insulted women, blacks, gays and lesbians, and Latinos.
