Now, Republican conservatives can wait to say ‘we told you so’ — again.
Mitt Romney’s clear path to the nomination means that the party’s establishment center had better win this thing or be blamed by social conservatives for blowing another election.
For all the bluster of tea partiers and evangelicals these past couple of years it was amazing to watch them fumble the GOP nomination race and make way for the guy they liked the least. Had just one politically competent right winger with a national organization emerged, Romney would be back home counting his money.
Despite their blunders, conservatives such as Santorum will assert bragging rights if Romney loses to President Obama, arguing that a “Massachusetts moderate” at the top of the ticket was a big mistake. Never mind that Santorum would have been a disaster for Republicans in November.
Now, GOP right wingers have their talking points for the future. They won’t have to prove they can win a general election, just say so — despite actually proving in this campaign they don’t even know how to win their own party’s nomination.

“It’s a familiar ending. Gerald Ford, George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, and John McCain all beat back conservative insurgents to win the Republican nomination. Only the elder Bush went on to win the White House, and then only once.” — W. James Antle III, The American Spectator
“The Republican establishment is embarrassed of many conservatives, both conservative media people, conservative voters, they’re embarrassed of them. I’m talking about the New York, Washington corridor Republican establishment types. Just embarrassed of them. It was remarkable. They had their candidate, which was Romney, and then all the others which were conservatives. We ended up splitting the conservative primary vote.” — Rush Limbaugh
