    The gop needs fresh, young blood. And I hope this is the last we see of Romney. He had his chance and America said no.

    Now onto the real deal of what we must do...

    We HAVE to find a way to draw in MANY more minorities into our tent. More and more the large metropolitan areas are the ones choosing our presidents. Those areas comprise of what, 90% of the minorities?

    Obama should have easily been beaten but our party is just too narrow racially to accomplish what should have been so simple. We have got to reach out more effectivly. When Perry and Romney sparred over immigration reform in the primaries I sided with Perry and many of youchastized me for it

    I'm glad Ryan as a career politician is probably out of it for good.

    Latinos. Hard workers, generally religious, seem to have a lot of conservative values on the whole. You'd think they'd be a good target to try to monopolize as much as possible.

    And to add onto my previous i am 22 and a college Student Obama Energized the Youth Vote the first time around and he did it again this time. I think Republicans/GOP Need to take note of that.

    Thats all fine and good. And in the macro you're right.

    For 2016, the GOP needs to break the NY-CA-MI-PA picket line. It's actually bigger than that but those are the trunks of the tree. The TEA party influence looks like it's here to stay so you're going to have candidates bouncing around like a pinball during the election...hard right then back to the left.

    So the only way to survive this hurdle is to have some EVs in your pocket going in. Obama had a shitload of EVs in his pocket and Romney did not outside of Texas and the whole of the flyover states. Not good enough as we know now.

    Rubio is fine but FL doesn't get you there as we saw tonight. Start tonight--groom someone who can break that log-jam.

    In the long run, yes, you need to expand the roster as Jeb Bush has suggested now for going on 16 years. But that takes generations to do.

    In 2016, Obama fatigue will be on the ballot as much as Bush and Clinton fatigue were on the ballot in 2000 and 2008. So that is something.
