Mark Davis knows nothing. Mark Davis is a pompous blowhard know it all buffoon that conducts himself as if he and only he knows the secrets to life. Listen, we conservatives followed the loud mouth right wing talk show hosts and listened to them and presume they knew of what they spoke. And, what has it now gotten us? The reason the election was lost isn't hard to ascertain at all. Obama promised to use the legislative process to steal from the productive members of the country and hand that booty over to his followers. Its that simple. It wasn't about the economy or foreign policy or Benghazi or cultural issues or social issues or immigration or Fast and Furious or birth control or abortion or any of that stuff.

These are days of hindsight and second-guessing for Republicans, which is human nature after a trauma like this election loss.

There are million “why” theories out there, from the Hurricane Sandy effect to pernicious media bias. Wringing our hands over those factors gets us nowhere.

We can’t stop hurricanes, and media bias is always there. Reagan and Bush 43 won twice against waves of poisonous bias, so that is not an insurmountable obstacle.

What Republicans need is a slate of candidates that can energize the base while expanding the appeal of a conservative message.
