GOP Solution: Stick to Values, Pick Better Candidates

The fact that we need conservative and moderate labels for Republicans is a problem. If the Republican Party doesn't stand for the Founding Principles of limited government then what on earth does it stand for? What are the core values of a moderate Republican? What do they say about all of this massive government spending and debt? Since they contributed to the creation of a government out of control then they don't have much to say about it at all. Why does this idiot have a platform to write such drivel?

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.
