Letter from a moderate Republican.

"You didn’t lose because you 'weren’t conservative enough' or because the country has become full of lazy 'takers' who don’t want to earn a living or just want America to 'turn in to Europe'.

"You didn’t lose because of Hurricane Sandy or because Chris Christie hugged the President on TV – they were both doing their jobs.

"You didn’t lose because of a liberal media, liberal college campuses, liberal polls that were 'weighted to Democrats' (mostly because they were accurate), or because of 'election fraud'… actually, that probably benefited you this time.

"No. You lost because your policies, tone, conspiracies, rigid inflexibility and irrational rhetoric helped align enough moderates, swing voters, and minority groups whom otherwise could be persuaded by Republicans, to align with Democrats and a beatable incumbent.

"It’s not that you didn’t get your message out, it’s that we all actually heard it and threw up a little in our mouths."
