Republicans fleeced exploited and lied to by conservative entertainment complex

David Frum (former G. W. Bush speechwriter and FOX news contributor) from on Morning Joe today:

David Frum said

I believe the Republican Party has a problem of follower-ship. The problem with Republican leaders is that they are cowards, not that they are fundamentally mistaken. The real locus of the problem is the Republican activist base and the Republican donor base. They went apocalyptic over the last four years, and that was exploited by a lot of people in the conservative world. I won't soon forget the lupine smile that played over the head of one major conservative institution when he told me "Our donors think the apocalypse has arrived". Republicans have been fleeced and exploited and lied to by a conservative entertainment complex [...] The people who put concrete shoes on him [Romney] are now blaming him for sinking.

"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."

You can fool all the Republicans all of the time?
