Letter: Desperate panderer
Re “N.H. GOP wonders what went wrong” (Monitor front page, Nov. 10):
If Republicans in New Hampshire and elsewhere want to figure out what went wrong on Nov. 6, they might want to watch Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. Romney’s decision to crack jokes about climate change during a year of extreme and expensive weather events revealed him to be a desperate panderer, willing to abandon his previous views at the drop of a hat to placate the far right.
Americans want a leader, not a follower, and they voted for a leader in President Obama, who understands “the destructive power of a warming planet.”
