I suspect the dems are laughing all the way to the whitehouse. Again we let them decide who the candidate was going to be. They chose Romney for us and we let them. Not Romneys fault I suppose? But if Romney was not a strong enoough candidate aginst John McCain, then who is Romney and why did the party crown his as the next candidate? Romney was shown to be incapable to begin with and we did what? Nominated the loser to McCain? The whole liberal party left wing needs to go and right now.

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.
