Letter | Put some grand back in the Grand Old Party

He was born in Kenya, has no birth certificate, is a socialist, Muslim, communist, and wants to be a king. We can impeach him over the IRS scandal, Benghazi and because he issues Executive Orders like all other Presidents.

He is violating our Constitution, and we know all this because we watch one news source only, and we listen to such honorable hosts like Limbaugh, O’Reilly and Hannity. He has no respect for our troops, he let four perish in Benghazi, we have forgotten the number of soldiers killed under Reagan and Cheney-Bush. The Affordable Care Act will kill our grandmothers and children, we will repeal it on the first day of Romney’ s presidency.

We can easily defeat him in 2012, we’ll put forth our best ... one with a history of marital infidelities, one who does not know anything about Libya or Ubeki-ubeki ubekistan, one who does not know the difference between The Duke and John Wayne Gacy the serial killer, and another who would close the agency of “Let’s see, I can’t, sorry, oops.” Then we’ll throw in a couple guys who will only talk about female reproductive issues. Then, if someone can still crawl after our debates, he will crush Obama. Fox polls say so, and Rush guarantees it.

How did we lose? Didn’t we carry the older white vote? When did African-Americans, Latinos and women start voting? We better hold a retreat to work on there issues. Do not talk about reproductive issues, ease up on refusing to agree to any immigration reform, and maybe find some legitimate candidates who could beat this Clinton person. Before we adjourn, better cross Bob McDonnell’s name off the list his hand got stuck in some rich guy’s cookie jar. Chris Christie’s our man, he polls close to Hillary.

Oops.

So who is left for 2016? Lots of tea party candidates. Huckabee, who must have skipped the retreat, has already lost the female vote. Rand Paul has recently demonstrated that he is not the brightest leaf in the tea bag. One could argue that if there was a bright leaf in the tea bag it would be expelled from the bag.

There is some Republican hope. There appears to be a compromise on immigration on the horizon which basically changes the word “citizenship” to “legal.” As to Obamacare, the cry has changed from “repeal” to “keep but revise.”

Too bad it four years to accomplish this. Karl Rove began to question the tea party years ago, and now John McCain has openly criticized the movement. Some moderate Republicans might want to join the conversation. Keep an eye on Peter King up in New York and that former Governor of Florida with a very familiar presidential last name.
