Letter: Lessons for GOP
President Obama was his usual gracious self, reaching out to his opponent and members of the other party with words of conciliation and a promise to work together.
The other side, as usual, was less gracious, particularly the Senate
minority leader. Others, like Karl Rove, are still in denial. If there is one
lesson Republicans must learn, it is to publicly repudiate the crazies in their
When Rush Limbaugh verbally assaults a young Georgetown student, he must be condemned by party leadership.
When Senate candidates display their ignorance on the subject of rape, they must be put in their place. When a presidential candidate refuses to be interviewed, reveal his finances or give specifics about his plans, he cannot earn the trust of the majority of voters.
These are glaring errors. The blame game and conspiracy theories have begun, but the Republican Party must look inside itself to explain its loss. The white old boy network is losing its grip, and they are never getting it back. I’m so proud of New Hampshire for its all female leadership. The Granite State is leading the way into the 21st century. Well done!
