Conservatives must embrace the Corporate candidates .. because of fear of Democratic policy. The country is out of alignment. I don't want Lesbians groping me at the airport... but would Romney have changed that? I don't like police thugs tasering the population when they get uppity.... but would Romney have changed that? How about sadistic prison guards... for profit prisons? The Obomney candidates are here to stay... with us fighting over whether gays should marry.

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.
