.Mitt Romney may have graciously conceded the election to President Obama Tuesday night, but some conservative pundits and bloggers didn’t accept defeat quite as calmly.
Donald Trump made some of the most controversial comments of the night, calling the election a “total sham and a travesty” on Twitter.
“We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty,” he wrote. “Let’s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.”
He deleted others that called for “revolution,” which he wrote when he thought Romney won the popular vote but lost the electoral college.
Rocker and Romney supporter Ted Nugent also went on a Twitter tirade.
“Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav (sic) a president to destroy America,” he wrote. “Goodluk (sic) America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools.”
Another dramatic reaction came from conservative radio host Bryan Fischer who compared the vote to an infamous attack on America.
“Today was Pearl Harbor. Tomorrow we begin planning for Normandy,” he wrote.

I think I have more respect for Bernie Madoff at this point than I do for "Mr Serial Bankruptcy"
You know, the most interesting thing about this kind of response from conservatives is it's not like Mitt Romney ran on taking things (or not giving as many things) to poor people. His rhetoric was not one of a man fed up with lazy "takers" who was going to give America back to the people who made it.
So if that wasn't Romney's understood position, why are they so mad about people choosing Obama?
Because that was his understood his position, is why. That's what Romney thinks of the poor and what wanted to do to them. And everyone knew it. Yet if you come straight and say that's what conservative "reform" of welfare, Medicare, the tax code and other things amounts to... people brand you as a partisan hack.
There are very few true believers in the Republican party who actually believe supply side economics benefits the poor (Paul Ryan being one). Most of the politicians and the vast majority of the base look at the poor as just a sea of lazy, their arms outstretched for a handout. Problem is, this is a democracy. So they can't say it. But their policies reflect that viewpoint, and whether they say it or not that's what they believe.
Don't ever let anyone tell you different.
