If the GOP doesn't change, it will lose again in 2016

Former Gov. Robert Ehrlich is still whining about the GOP defeat in 2012 ("How Republicans can win in 2016," Nov. 25). He seems to think that next time the public will embrace the same philosophy that it rejected this year.

Forget about helping the less fortunate, and insist that women who don't want to bear a child but have become pregnant — regardless of the circumstances — go through with an unwanted birth?

Those ideas, among others, will only guarantee the same result four years from now. Wake up Bob, and look around before you lose again.
