Not fooled

Thank goodness the vast sums of money spent to buy votes have been squandered with little if any results. Not only Mitt Romney but also Karl Rove and his minions have been left holding the bag. Their espousal of anti-women, anti-Social Security and anti-Medicare issues have fallen on deaf ears and been repudiated by the nation as a whole. With a majority of white voters casting ballots for Romney, one underlying factor in this election emits an offensive odor of race prejudice.

The electorate as a whole wasn’t impressed by a flawed candidate such as Romney, and fortunately the minorities and women got it right and voted for principle over ethnicity. Mitch McConnell and others now have to eat their words that “Obama would be a one-term president,” and history will prove them and the Republican party wrong in their intransigence and condemnation of Barack Obama.

Hoorah for democracy! This presidential election was a peaceful revolution, and we’re fortunate that the people cannot be fooled.

    Nancy: Descending into the pit of racism when it isn't necessary puts greater meaning in the adage that "What makes this a deep subject is shallow people".

    Truly, I certainly hope the majority of Democrats don't feel as you do. If so, we are a very very very sick nation.

    This is one of the most pathetic letters I have read in a long time. Mrs. Dorian is a partisan of the worst kind as she plays the race card with no evidence other than unsubstantiated. She claims that because whites voted more for Romney than Obama there is an element of racial prejudice. It would be foolish to say that there were voters who did not vote for Obama because of race. On the other hand, he would not have been elected without white votes. How is that there is no racial prejudice when Blacks voted 95% for Obama? How about it Mrs. Dorian? Are you that committed to Democratic talking points? You seem to have covered them all. Do you not have an original thought of your own?

    Most people who did not vote for Obama are not racists, anti-woman, anti-medicare, anti-social security. We are anti-stupidity. Maybe, just maybe, we like our freedom and want to keep what we earned. For Dorian the only reason people dislike Obama is the color of his skin. How shallow is that thinking? How utterly reflective of those who are Democrats before they are Americans. How unpatriotic and stupid.
