GOP Solution: Stick to Values, Pick Better Candidates

Wrongstuff: The majority of Americans identify themselves as conservatives. Why don't you put your money where your mouth is and support a national Federal elections ID card that would assure no more than one vote per legal citizen. Care to test your theory under that condition?

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.
