Actually Mattheww466 post (8:34) is a good example of what conservatives are up against. The media and the educational establishment has been so successful in establishing their narrative in his fevered mind that he regurgitates it without any independent thought.

Excellent point. I believe we can rise up and put pressure on media. We should demand our media tell us facts and truth. Schools, now that is going to be a battle.

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.
