Letter: No boundaries on GOP speech, behavior
Re “N.H. GOP picks Horn as leader” (Sunday Monitor front page, Jan. 27):
That Republican Party Chairwoman Jennifer Horn and state Sen. Andy Sanborn say that Gov. Maggie Hassan is the “enemy” and “harebrained,” while contemptible, should not surprise us. Party Republicans have come to believe that there are no boundaries on their speech or behavior. We saw that exemplified well in the previous Legislature.
Their words and actions preclude willingness and ability to listen, discuss, compromise and come to consensus.
Do not confound them with information and, more, with attempt to reason. Their minds are decided, their positions unchangeable.
John Nance Garner, the first vice president under Franklin Roosevelt, is alleged to have said that the vice presidency is not worth a bucket of warm spit. These Republicans are filling that bucket and are wallowing in it. They cannot emerge clean.
