Dear Kathleen,

In elections the only one responsible for the outcome is the candidate. Romney had every chance to win and he didn’t. His bad, not Gary Johnson’s.

Unfortunately the GOP has too often put forward candidates that advocate the very policies that they criticize their opponent for.

Asking Americans to vote Romney because he is more patriotic than Obama almost worked; it’s kind of a relief that it didn’t.

Romney would have been a fine president. He just would have advocated many of the same policies that got us into fiscal difficulties.

The country needs a revolutionary Republican, not an evolutionary one.

Dear Comrade Eric,

They’re all disingenuous, including your friend Comrade Obama.

He calls for a balanced budget, yet spends more than he brings in. Or how about that time he railed against lifting the debt ceiling when he was a senator? That was really funny.

Or remember that time that Obama deported all those illegal aliens to pander to the law and order crowd? And when that didn’t work, he went back to pandering to Latinos?

Or how about when he declared war on Libya? Yeah. That was constitutional.
