GOP needs to accept blame

Dear Editor:

Has anyone paid attention to the way that the losing political party has been acting since the election? To me, they have looked like spoiled, self-righteous and self-centered children. They want to blame everyone but themselves for losing, and not admitting that it was their fault.

They said they wanted him to be a one-term president, so they obstructed all of his proposals in order to discredit him. Now their feelings toward Obama are worse than ever, also their lies. I don’t believe if Romney had won the election, the Democrats would have acted like someone out for revenge, or dream up stupid lies.

Some of the other things I heard were of the warmhearted, compassionate, generous CEOs are thinking of their own kind of response. I also heard that some hospitals have informed doctors not to bring anyone over 65 for an operation. What love and compassion.

Here is a new one … I received a robocall from Washington with a very stupid, ignorant question asking if we would be willing to send money in order to impeach President Obama. I believe these kind of things show a party that is desperate, hateful, racist and will do just about anything to get rid of the president.

All of these people that are supposed to represent us put their hand on the Holy Bible and take an oath of office. After this, many are approached by lobbyists and forget about the oath. In fact they sign pledges with the lobbyist not to raise taxes on the rich, although it is very detrimental to 98 percent of the citizens of this once great country.

I will never be able to understand how anyone can love money and power so much that they don’t care about the welfare of others, they only think about self and money. When they die they cannot take anything with them, but their survivors are waiting to divide everything. It’s so sad that most of the rich, politicians, lobbyists, many citizens claim to be Christians, but are consumed by greed, lust, adultery, mendacity, blasphemy, self-centered, laziness, no respect for God, or the Holy Trinity.

These people who claim to be Christians need to read a KJV Bible and find out what God thinks about these things. I am a Christian, independent voter and believe every word of God.
