You're wrong Mark. Based on Obama's record, he should have lost if Bozo the Clown was running against him. Folks sucking at the government breast is what put him over. That milk is sweet. I thought that the Social Security office in McKinney, TX would be filled with old codgers like me signing up for Medicare. But no, it was filled with a bunch of people all under the age of fifty signing up for some sort of government hand out. And, it's only going to get worse. How are you going to attract those folks to the conservative side? Those people aren't worried about immigration, wars, or the ecomomy. They want the MILK.

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.
