This morning, the Republican Party released its autopsy of the 2012 campaign cycle (cause of death: old age, severe melanin deficiency, saying dumb things in debates).
Among the proposed solutions in the Growth & Opportunity Project report:
The number of debates should be reduced by roughly half to a still robust number of approximately 10 to 12, with the first occurring no earlier than September 1, 2015,and the last ending just after the first several primaries (February – March 2016).
So the key to victory is to keep the old message, but say it very very quietly.
