The msm praised Obama for flying into New Jersey, never once mentioning how this political photo op actually disrupted rescue efforts by taking security away from the storm victims to protect the prez and his entourage. But hey the media criticized Bush for not showing up for Katrina when Bush reasoned that he did not want to detract from emergency relief efforts. Until the media climbs out of its hole and takes the higher ground of what their profession once expected of them, we will continue to have demagogues who are secure that the media has their back no matter what.

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.
