I suppose it is possible that the party will choose ideological purity over contemporary relevance, but somehow I have a hard time believing that those in the party who want to run things will just leave it at that. Surely there is someone in the Republican party formulating an updated or new image/policy prescription in the wake of the last election? Something that might potentially attract the voters who are up for grabs? Even more pressing, perhaps a message that will appeal to the faster growing elements of the US population?
What image/policy prescription did democrats change when they lost 63 seats in the house in 2010, besides becoming more socialist and rahming Obamacare through?

A swing of 200,000 votes in 4 swing states and you'd be posting about president Romney ruining the country right now.
