You (Steve Greenberg and Brian Kelly) have stated succinctly what many Americans would like to say to the national Republican Party leaders. I wrote a scathing letter to them just after the election attempting to say what you more eloquently stated (in last week’s edition.) Unfortunately, Mr. Romney was a “moderate” and had no chance against a far left liberal/socialist who is a media darling. The Tea Party put up some awful candidates in 2010 and 2012, most of whom (like Mourdock and others) lost badly due to speaking out of turn or on a subject which they knew little about, even if they were sincere about it. Keep up the good work!
