Joe Scarborough: ‘Everybody Lied’ To GOP Donors

On Monday, Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski turned the panel’s attention to Franki Bruni’s New York Times op-ed concerning Karl Rove and the very large sums of money his groups spent on so many unsuccessful Republican campaign efforts across the country, as well as the so-called “bluster” implemented during the election.

Joe Scarborough weighed in, echoing David Frum‘s comments from last week:

I’ll tell you, if I were a donor, my biggest problem would be that I was lied to. I was lied to by the, as David Frum said, the conservative entertainment establishment. I mean, the conservative media establishment. They lied to the donors, they lied to the base. They lied to everybody about how Romney was ahead and things were looking good in the Senate. The pollsters lied. Everybody lied.

And so guys keep writing checks and find out the reason they went to Minnesota and Pennsylvania is because all of these people that were saying Romney was going to win Ohio, they knew he was not going to win Ohio. They knew all along.
