The author in this November 2012 piece had some interesting thoughts:

"(snip)Romney did everything the cynical Rove wing of the party says Republicans have to do to win. He abandoned his base with Chick-fil-a and joined the liberal dog pile on Todd Akin. He played it safe and didn't offer any major tax or entitlement reform ideas to avoid being demagogued. He ran on platitudes (snip)

He even ran pro-choice television ads, which aired in battleground states such as Virginia and Iowa (has any GOP presidential nominee ever done that?).

And he still lost.

Notice how liberals press for Republicans to run a "moderate?" But yet the Dem Party doesn't run moderates in the presidential races, and they WIN.

How about running a candidate with conservative principles this time.
It's a fine balance.

No one can win the general election without somehow inspiring the base of their party to turn out in large numbers but at the same time they have to do so without turning off the so called undecideds and they must have a platform that pulls some votes from the opposite party.

They also must have a platform and a message that does not so energize the opposite party's voters to turn out in uncharacteristically large numbers.

The right conservative with the right message and platform can do it but it isn't going to be easy.
