The most prominent tea party group thinks they lost because Mitt was too moderate
"Today, Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest tea party organization, criticized the Republican Party for hand-picking a weak, Beltway elite candidate who failed to campaign forcefully on America’s founding principles – and lost."
This isn't going to change unfortunately

the republican party and or conservatives that are staunch have painted themselves into a corner. while you might think they are sticking to their convictions, their very nature is inflexibility.
where as the dems, usually go with the flavor of the month/year and that almost always appeals to the masses.
the ebb and flow will mean reps having to go back towards the middle to even think about gaining traction. i personally like a good mix as the checks and balances keep us from being too extreme. that goes for the left or the right.

Watching the Dems election night crowd in Chicago was like seeing a cross section of the American public in 2012.
The GOP is rapidly approaching a forced transition. Finding new fiscal conservatives to join the party won't be difficult.
The trick is attracting those voters while trying to maintain dated, socially conservative values.
The type of values that generated the OPs comments. The type of values that drive women and minorities away in droves.

Will they do that? Not a chance in hell. They're going to hurl themselves to the right until they fall off the edge.
(I don't mean run her as a candidate, but keep her face on TV etc)

consider this. lets fast forward where every state has gay marriage and legalized weed and immigration reform all states are on the same page as the feds. then what?
in an odd way, at some point, it may truly come down to the nuts and bolts of the economy but by then, it may not really matter.
