Rush Limbaugh has always correctly pointed out that the Democrats will tell you who they fear - when Democrats go after the VP candidate with guns a-blazin' - Sarah Palin for instance - but not the guy at the top of the ticket - they are telling you who they fear and who they do not fear.

The last time it was Herman Cain that the left really feared.

Having just lost an election, many Republicans are anxious to remake our party in the image of Democrats. The theory seems to be that whatever we're doing isn't working, so we better change everything.

But in fact, whatever Republicans did in 2012 -- other than an overly long primary fight -- worked amazingly well, given the circumstances.

In a detailed analysis of the 2012 election, William A. Galston, a fellow with the liberal Brookings Institution, makes a number of fascinating observations that Republicans would do well to consider before embracing amnesty, abortion, gay marriage and Beyonce.
