Pity the poor Republicans

Herman King - September 7, 1012

Politically I am an Independent. I find something to dislike in both parties, mainly their penchant for meddling in the affairs of other countries. Our first president George Washington (probably our only truly great president) advised his successors to mind their own business, for the most part they have ignored that advice.

Being a compassionate person, though, I kind of pity the Republicans. These days nobody likes them. (well, that's a slight exaggeration, but it's hard to write a complete paragraph if you're always qualifying what you say). 

Take Mitt Romney. He's a nice looking man with a smile as big as Ike's and as much teeth as Kirk Douglas. But people don't like him. They like President Obama though they hate his policies. Hollywood (with the exception of Clint Eastwood) hates all Republicans. They even delayed giving John Wayne an Oscar for years because he was a Republican. 

Women don't like Republicans. Blacks don't like Republicans although Democrats had enslaved them. Hispanics don't like Republicans, despite the fact Karl Rove, who is a Republican, designed the Hispanic strategy which replaced the Southern strategy which had worked well for the GOP. (Seems like they can't stand success).

Even ex-felons and dead people don't like Republicans, they always vote Democratic. O well, perhaps God will like the Republicans. At least they didn't take Him out of their platform, unlike the Democrats. Responding to critics they hastily put Him back but God knows insincerity when He sees it.
