Republicans see demographic shifts, time for soul-searching in the wake of election losses
"Seeing a lot of folks I would have thought were SoCon opinion leaders taking to hear this loss, advocating recalibration on social issues," Mediaite's Noah Rothman tweeted. "If true, and 2012 becomes turning point when GOP moderates on immigration & gay marriage w/strong fiscal message, could be pyrric for Dems."
Romney's party, and not necessarily Romney himself, doomed his chances at being elected, Ross Douthat of The New York Times wrote Wednesday.
"A weak nominee in many ways, (Romney) was ultimately defeated less by his own limitations as a leader, and more by the fact that his party didn't particularly want to be reinvented, preferring to believe that the rhetoric and positions of 1980 and 1984 could win again in the America of 2012."
