To the editor:
As soon as President Obama was finished with his victory speech Tuesday evening, the opposing party pounced. (No wonder the founding fathers were not in favor of political parties.)Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, congratulated the president, but also said “Now it’s time for the president to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a closely-divided Senate, step up to the plate on the challenges of the moment, and deliver in a way that he did not in his first four years in office.”
So again we see the Republican Party — the party of “No”, the party who did not hesitate to refuse to do anything to help the country’s citizens, just to make sure the president only served one term — is now announcing they are also the party of no ideas, and trying to put the entire burden on the president’s shoulders.
What does the Republican Party offer an independent, female voter, especially when we see this attitude or hear crude, insulting comments? Also, who in their right mind would ever vote for an American who loathes his country so much that he hides his money offshore so he can screw his homeland out of its taxes?
Unpatriotic and creepy.
Would you have voted for Romney if you knew he made millions of dollars in the auto bailout, perhaps one reason he did not release his 2009 taxes?
Look it up, he did.
