Party of ‘no’ is in woe

To the editor:

It’s not who one likes for president – it’s who is going to be president of the United States. In all likelihood, it’s going to be Hillary Clinton.

The Republican Party of “no” during the eight years of the Obama administration will go, or should go, down in defeat.

The pundits of “no” to Obama’s presidency will not be remembered in name only, but in shame for their disrespect of the president of the United States.

The “no” crowd quotes the Constitution when it suits their behavior, many times quoting a higher deity while trying to justify their behavior.

Authoritarians: The pundits of “no” will stage wars and kill millions in the name of God, carpet bombing and killing thousands of civilians.

Humanitarians: If it feels good, do it – it might not be a bad idea. They will do good deeds and work wonders that will save millions of lives.

The Republicans should realize their main goal is not see that people of great wealth add to it, but that those without much money have a greater chance to add to theirs.

A pre-existing condition of being a Fox News antogonist prostituting one’s self for a dollar bill should not be tolerated.

It looks like the party of “no” is in woe. It almost reminds you of France eons ago when the people were hungry and they said, “Oh, so they are hungry – give them cake,” and down came the monarchy and off came her head.

It’s not so much Hillary Clinton’s message, but Obama’s legacy that has driven the Republican Party into the ditch with their “no,” as it softens the tone on climate change, women’s rights, the Iran deal, free trade and the Trans-Pacific Partnership opening up trade with Asia and softening relations with Cuba.

If Trump wins the presidency, he will not tear up one of Obama’s executive orders. He will embrace some and ignore the others.

The party of “no” has rigged the economy to favor the top 1 percent who own 99 percent of the wealth.

The jig’s up, gents. If the private sector creates jobs, then create some jobs and let’s move on, or it’s curtains with no encores for the Republican Party.
