Dear Gov. Romney,
I don’t think you should feel too bad about the results of the 2012 election. Nearly 62 million Americans didn’t reject you as much as we rejected the policies of the GOP. Bottom line, we just don’t trust the GOP to look out for our interests. You see, anytime Republicans think it is okay to pay CEO’s $16 million a year while keeping the minimum wage below $9.00/hr. we wonder how you think that’s okay. The GOP wants to give nice tax incentives to big oil while cutting back on Medicare and Medicaid. How can we trust your party when it seems to us that profit and greed are your basic tenets? Then there is the big government/small government thing. We just don’t get how you can say we need less government and fewer regulations and then your party’s governors and legislatures write laws forcing women to have trans-vaginal ultrasounds before they can have an abortion. You don’t want to regulate banks, but you do want to regulate who can get married. You see to most of America, that just doesn’t make any sense.
We also realize that Democrats don’t have all the answers either. But, one thing we do believe is that that party will look out for the interests of all Americans, not just a select few. So until the GOP can figure out a way to reach out to women, young people, and people of color, forget about winning.
Sincerely,
A Democrat.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  I rejected HIM as well as his policies. (2+ / 0-)

    I very, very much rejected Mitt Romney, a candidate who was a slimy lying sociopath, a misogynist, a smirking hypocrite, and who deserves absolutely NOTHING but to be held to the full force of the law when it comes to his manipulation of money. The UAW brought charges against him for a reason - I hope they don't go away. I hope the bum ends up in Federal Prison, finally held accountable for a lifetime spent being rewarded for breaking the rules everyone else has to live by.

    And I hope he weeps with his failure. I hope it shadows the rest of his miserable life. I hope he looks around every house he owns and can never shake the  knowledge that the states his homes are in rejected him; that he can't drive down a street without looking out at the people along that street, and remembering the fact that most of them voted against him. He's not just a failure as a candidate, in my book. This election let us all get to know Mitt Romney, and he was a failure as a human being long before he ever held a public office.

    And why do I hope all of this? Because Mitt Romney, just the fact that he was the GOP's candidate at this time, is the embodiment of everything wrong with the GOP. It's run amok with delusions of its own making, drunk on its own swill, and the country has suffered deeply for this. PEOPLE are hurting, and they sit there basking in the misery of Americans that they created, trying to use it as a tool for creating more power for themselves, remorseless and sneering. Just like Romney himself. Fuck him and fuck them. They don't get there-there-don't -feel-so-bad pats on the back, not when they voted down Obama's Jobs Bill in the Great Recession. Not when Boehner is already giving them the "stay in line" party line about not cooperating and returning to obstructionism.

    Fuck them all.
