Naive Garon

From page A5 | February 10, 2014 |

EDITOR:

Mr. Garon says I call him names so it appears I have to educate the uneducated. Teahadist is a name, Mr. Garon; naive is a description. And an apt one at that.

Sen. Reid overturning rules that had been in place for many decades and which he stoutly defended when he was in the minority is basically a punch in the face to the other side. Now you can argue that the punch was justified, but that doesn’t change the fact that it was indeed a punch. My point was that it was naive to think you could punch somebody politically or otherwise and be shocked at retaliation.

If getting punched back is a surprise to Mr. Garon, he must have worn a bandage on his nose most of his grade school career. Mr. Garon complains of a lack of good faith on the Republicans’ part. What a joke. Obama invites the GOP over for negotiations and while they’re en route, tells reporters that the GOP is welcome to come along with his program and they can “ride in the back of the bus.” If this is what you call good faith on the administration’s part, you have more loose screws than a hardware store.
