So just because you didn't get your way means you need to violate 130 years
of precedent and try and steal the election away from the American voters who
fairly voted in Obama?
Oh for Pete's sake!Seriously?Conservatives, you
folks frequently claim to be offended by the criticism from the left that you
are not thinking rationally.This letter is a perfect example of why
you have earned the ridicule you experience.The derision this letter
will produce isn't unfair "MSM" bias, it's simple reality
holding a mirror up to you.
"They must look beyond political party and vote as Americans."Something that you may try yourself, Mr Smith.
Are you serious?? Reallly? It may be interesting for the writer to
research the reasoning behind the decision to use the Electoral College. If we can get the Republican Congress to work with the President we will
move forward. As long as the Congress continues to ignore the people of the
United States in an effort to make themselves more electable we as a nation will
suffer. I find the lack of action by Congressman almost treasonous.
It's over. Give it a rest.
I wold suspect that even the DN editors were laughing themselves silly when they
read this. Good joke. Great way to start a day.
Yes, because no stupid people voted for Romney and no.intelligent people voted
for Obama. I am sorry but the basic underlying assumptions of this letter wreak
of self-righteous delussion.
Even with the biggest scandal ever, it ain't never going to happen.@ BlueTo lump every conservative in with this letter writer
is ludicrous. Remember the Obamaphone lady? Do all liberals want to
be lumped in with her?Have a nice day.
Come on guys, it's time to switch off Michael Savage, pull the tin foil out
of the sombrero, turn off Fox News, check out the Wall Street Journal, and get
back into the Great American Mainstream.We can't run the
country with one functioning political party, we need some well reasoned
Ah, once again the legendary and mythical "Obamaphone" shows up.How many times do we have to point out that it's really a
Reaganphone?However, this letter has helped me to understand a
little more about those "Utah Values" we hear about so often, but that
no one can really define. I'm not exactly sure what this particular value
should be called, but it does have a rather bad smell about it.
Don't think so.People wanted a statesman, not a salesman, and we got
I doubt Mitt would ever be elected President.We have seen and heard his
act...You don't get a second chance to make a first impression.
It never ceases to amuse me how the rugged red-state conservatives are the ones
who throw the biggest, most irrational tantrums.Obama won and Romney
lost. Get over it.
Oh for crying out loud!...1st it' was the Electoral College
loss [which should have been no surprise to anyone NOT watching FoxNews].Then it was the Popular Vote final tally, Next it was the traitorist
Secession Petitions to leave the United States, Now it's the Lobby
Electorites to sway the election.From the Party of REAL Patriots,
and the REAL Americans.I remember when GW Bush was selected, not
elected.Never heard such garbage coming from us "evil"
"un-American" Liberals then...
@KJB Some of us remember the blue state irrational tantrums against President
Bush and you never got over it! Carey lost, Bush won, but did you ever get over
it? No, and you never will! Obama and the Democrats still blame GWB for all
their failures, for the national debt that ironically is growing faster now that
at any time in history and for the economic crash that really happened because
the federal government under Clinton meddled in the housing market! Just as good
ole boy, Barney Frank, he is one of yours, isn't he?
Wow. what a bunch of unkind spirits here.. Dennis Smith, you are exactly right
and that is exactly what needs to happen. Obama did NOT win fair and square, he
used every means available to steal this election from the rightful winner. Mr
Smith, if you know how to contact those unbound electors, I suggest you twitter
it.. many on there are listening.. #voterfraud is the hashtag and there are
those there that would do it. As for the rest of you, you are badly
misdirected in your loyalty to the most enabling president this nation has ever
seen. It won't be long till no one will want to work and then there will
be NO money for all the give aways.. sickening to watch.. Keep up
the good work Dennis Smith, for you are correct.
Old Man:The Cleveland woman with the phone called it an Obama phone.
If you think she is wrong, you should have straightened her, and all her
neighbors in Cleveland out, before the election. The Obama camp used
the phones to buy votes, period. I realize the libs never meant for her type to
make video and go viral, but she did. She is what she is, and that includes an
Obama supporting liberal, like so many of you. I realize is it embarrassing to
you. Hey, I am embarrassed as a fellow American.Shall we blame Nixon
or Ford for the next Obama administration failure or embarrassment?
I thought repubs were all about the "voice of the people?" Soooooo Mr. Smith would rather "win" than to let the voice of the
people and the Constitution win? Wow...Please Mr. Smith.
Leave the country with the rest of your secession buddies.
Benghazi again? You may want to check out Bagley's cartoon in the Trib
today. It's priceless in how it points out the hypocrisy of those who keep
screaming about Benghazi.
From Mr. Smith's letter:"We need a grassroots effort to
educate each elector on the reasons Mitt Romney should be our next
president."Perhaps "the Donald" could organize some pool
parties in Las Vegas. This "grassroots effort" might save the Republic
