Letter to the Editor: Republicans should blame themselves


The Republicans are thoroughly upset by their loss of the election and all the money they invested in it. How could this happen?

In desperation they ask: What could we possibly have gone wrong? Not enough white men voters? Unexpected diversity in the population? Too many Hispanics and Asians? Was Romney a little too easy going? Was he not far enough to the right? Should Paul Ryan have taken time to explain his budget plan more clearly? They have even blamed Hurricane Sandy and believe that Governor Christy was too enthusiastic in thanking President Obama and FEMA for their assistance.

The Republicans in their fault finding are looking in the wrong place. We, the middle class, have been left at the bottom of the heap while our normal standard of living has been reduced to near poverty, and what little bit of wealth we were able to accumulate has been taken away and given to the top 2 percent of our country.

Our right to vote conveniently and easily has been turned into a travesty of long lines, 10 page ballots, and efforts at voter suppression. Our voting for Obama says "enough." We will gain back our middle class status and the Republicans can keep on scratching their heads and blaming everyone but themselves.

Gloria Rickel, Front Royal
