Resistance with Respect

When President Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected to his fourth term, Kansas editor William Allen White, a staunch Republican, wrote: “We who hate your gaudy guts salute you.” President Obama: We have never hated your gaudy guts. And we acknowledge that a majority of our fellow citizens of this Great Republic have saluted you and conferred upon you for the second time the office of President of the United States. We thank God that more than 120 million Americans voted in a peaceful and orderly election. That alone is a wonder of the world. (You will pardon us, Sir, if we also thank Heaven for the Twenty-second Amendment, another legacy from FDR.)

    Tremendous! Such a respectful, yet powerful message addressing the salient and crucial areas that this Obama administration has attacked or neglected.

    Thank you, Amb. Blackwell; I trust you will be elevated to greater responsibility in the GOP.
