Less than a day after Mitt Romney was defeated by Barack Obama, Republicans have already started the campaign post-mortem. After agreeing that the candidate, policies, and campaign strategy were faultless, the blame was laid entirely at God's door.
Romney strategist Karl Rove pulled no punches: ‘When God is required to do nothing, like standing by and watching a rape victim get impregnated, he excels. But when God is required to do something, like ensure Mitt Romney wins the election, he is asleep at the wheel. He might as well not exist for all the good he is doing at the moment.’
Mr Rove was unable to comment further as he was tragically killed when crushed by an Obama billboard loosened by Hurricane Sandy.
