GOP Solution: Stick to Values, Pick Better Candidates

The problem is the GOP DID pick out candidate. Romney was at a 25% approval rating all throughout the primaries. WE are supposed to pick out candidates and the GOP did a fine Democrat style character assassination on everyone except Romney. The GOP heads have got to go!

Another thing that might help is closed Republican primaries. Democratic votes skew the results in favor of a "moderate."

Well, if you think they didn't do character assassination on Romney, think again.

Your on to something here!!

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.
