LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Missing: GOP outrage over election tactics
Question of the Day
Following the election disaster of Nov. 6, Republicans have reverted to their usual rounds of handwringing and endless moaning about what went wrong. We had the wrong candidate, we did not have enough outreach in battleground states, we did not make enough phone calls or explain our cause in every known language, and so on. If the Republicans can lift their eyes from their navels for a brief interlude to review some recent history, I think it is clear to everyone that once again — as with both terms of Bill Clinton and the first term of Barack Obama — the liberal press has shoved their presidential choice down our national throat.
President Obama was “chosen” by the media, and once they made their choice, they did everything necessary to keep him in the White House — starting with their failure to report a single story that might reflect negatively on Mr. Obama and their full-bore attacks of ridiculous charges against Mitt Romney. Stories of “malfunctioning” voting machines were coming in from Virginia and Ohio as soon as early voting began. Tales of absentee ballots that never arrived were legion, and election offices that were supposed to be set up on military bases were hidden in disused corners of the base or never opened at all.
Suposedly, Republican and military voting was down in this election. If you are stationed in another country, it can be very hard to vote if you never receive your ballot, which is what was reported in many areas. It can be hard to have your Republican vote registered when the electronic voting machine identifies your Romney vote as a vote for the Democratic ticket, as was reported from the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, a swing state.
The talk of a stolen election has been all over the radio, yet the Republicans in office seem oddly silent. Are the Republicans going to investigate evidence of election fraud? Are they going to work on behalf of those who put them in office, or are they going to continue to crumble under Democratic criticism? There is everything to be gained by pursuing this, and there is a lot to be lost by ignoring it — namely, our country.
