Letter: Hey, Republicans, the people have spoken!
Re “N.H. GOP wonders what went wrong” (Monitor front page, Nov. 10):
Republicans wonder what went wrong?! Are you kidding me?
Here’s what went wrong: The extreme right (including New Hampshire’s speaker of the House, who wants to take the state’s social policy back to the 1950s) attempted to make the election about a war on equality for gays and lesbians, on the right of women to control their own bodies, on women’s equal status in America’s work places and society at large. Their positions on rape, contraception and abortion cost them dearly among women voters. Their out-of-touch disdain for gay rights and reproductive choice is what cost them the presidency. That’s what went wrong.
The people have spoken, folks. Listen up next time with some respect, aging white upper-class Republican males, if you want to be considered valid ever again.
