GOP Solution: Stick to Values, Pick Better Candidates

Totally agree. Also, we can thank all those "morally superior" conservatives who refused to vote at all, showing a lack of appreciation for the blessing of being permitted to vote, when so many people across the globe throughout history have not had that privilege. In my opinion, they are showing ingratitude for what the U.S. still does provide, which is ultimately what God provides.

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.
