Nut case, Obama won. More People voted for him and he got more electoral college votes plain and simple, It was not fraud it was alrgely three things: 1) Enough Americans wanted more free stuff and put their selfish interests over the good of the nation 2) Special Interest voters who vote single issue (same-sex marriage, abortion, etc) and do not care about anything else 3) Racism of the left, where they judge by ethnicity and not accomplishment. Enough Americans voted for those things ignoring the complete failure that is Obama's first four years. Not fraud etc. I am not saying there was no fraud, there always is and always will be, but it did not tip the Presidential election.

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.
