Michael Barone was one of the early Republican establishment punditocracy to come out in support of Mitt Romney. He and his fellow establishmentarians, Ann Coulter, Bill Kristol, Karl Rove et al, insisted that Romney was the one who could win and joined the GOP establishment in destroying, Cain, Bachmann, Perry Gingrich and Santorum. All of whom were supported to one degree or another by the grassroots and Tea Party types, the very constituency that the establismentariat wanted to destroy. So now, we get analytical pieces like this one from Barone, attempting to disguise the fact that "they" were primarily responsible for what they now acknowledge was not the people's choice and the real reason their guy lost his axe "big-time."
