Letter: Romney thumped? No way
A story on Page A2 in the Aug. 3 Sunday Monitor headlined “Mitt Romney emerges as GOP’s star campaigner” began with a whopper: “President Obama thumped Mitt Romney in the 2012 election.”
In fact, Obama won by a slim margin of 3.5 percent of the popular vote, and Romney took 24 to Obama’s 26 states. Beat, yes. But thumped? Hardly.
To avoid bias I referenced a Democratic site to gather my information. Other parts of the article were more factual. Readers that went past the first sentence would discover that Republican candidates are, in fact, proud to have an honorable man like Romney stand by their side this campaign season.
Democratic candidates, on the other hand, know the type of man Obama is. And, while I’m sure they will gladly accept the money he has been out raising when he should have been dealing with crisis after crisis his administration is responsible for, they “don’t want to be associated with him.”
