GOP Solution - Stick to Values, & Pick a Competent Party Chairman to Replace Reince Priebus (alias Buttkiss). He failed to ensure that John McCain's team of advisors, who had demonstrated real excellence at losing an election, were not amputated from the party. Constructive change and revitalization of the party is impossible without a competent innovative leader. Reince Priebus - take a hike, and don’t come back.

Maybe Ron Paul can run the party now that the Neocon Trotzky-ites have near killed it...

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.
