Retiring representative Steve LaTourette didn't mince words this morning when Soledad O'Brien of CNN asked him if criticisms levelled at Mitt Romney by the Tea Party Patriots, and others, were valid. His one word answer to their charges that Romney was a weak moderate: crap.

LaTourette went on to diagnose the real problems, as he sees it, with the current Republican Party.

The Republican party cannot be a national party if we give up the entire East Coast of the United States…. We don’t have any Republicans in New England. We don’t have any Republicans in the Mid-Atlantic states. We can’t continue to diss the Latino voters…. We have the right message on the finances. We have to get out of people’s lives, get out of people’s bedrooms and we have to be a national party, or else we’re going to lose.
